Gruden says no final decision on Guice has been made.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 20, 2019
They often wait till after they meet with us to make these decisions, even though we all kinda know the deal. It’s not official yet but he should be playing.
Gruden says he wants Guice to get a few carries before Week 1 in Philly. Says he feels “pretty confident” Guice will play Thursday in Atlanta— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) August 20, 2019
Gruden says he’d love Guice to get a few carries and get used to being tackled again. He’s confident he’ll be ready Thursday.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 20, 2019
Gruden to the podium:— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 20, 2019
He hasn’t made a decision on Jordan Reed for tomorrow yet. If he doesn’t play, he says it gives others a chance to make plays which makes it easier to evaluate the rest of the offense.
Jay Gruden time. Says he's unsure if Derrius Guice or Jordan Reed play Thursday... pic.twitter.com/e1DrMHK963— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) August 20, 2019
Gruden: Fabian Moreau (ankle) out tomorrow. No decision on Jordan Reed or Derrrius Guice yet. #redskins— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) August 20, 2019
Tim Settle did some team work, per Gruden. Caleb Brantley only did individual. Fabian Moreau won’t play this week— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) August 20, 2019
Gruden said Paul Richardson probably won’t play Thursday. Coming off Quad injury.— John Keim (@john_keim) August 20, 2019
Gruden on his quarterback: “There’s no rush to name a starter right now.”— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) August 20, 2019
Gruden says there are “high hopes” that Trey Quinn will be ready for Week 1 in Philly— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) August 20, 2019
Trey Quinn won’t play Thursday. They’re hoping he’s ready for Philly.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 20, 2019
Trey Quinn says if this was a regular season game he would be playing. Says he wants to be playing and would take reps in the 4th preseason game if the coaches would let him.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) August 20, 2019
Paul Richardson Jr.:
Also sounds like Paul Richardson won't play Thursday. PRich told me earlier in the week he hoped to play.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) August 20, 2019
On Guice, Gruden adds he's optimistic the RB makes his preseason debut Thursday.
