Jay Gruden spoke to reporters after the Redskins lost their final preseason game 20-7 to the Ravens. Washington goes 1-3 in the preseason and now prepares for Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Gruden talked about Dwayne Haskins, narrowing the wide receivers group down to 5 or 6, and the rest of the 2019 rookie class.
Dwayne Haskins Jr.:
Jay Gruden said Dwayne Haskins had “good energy... made some nice plays.... I was happy the way he played.”— John Keim (@john_keim) August 30, 2019
Steven Sims Jr.:
Gruden on Steven Sims “he’s a fireball. Every time he gets the ball in his hands it’s exciting.”— John Keim (@john_keim) August 30, 2019
Jay Gruden said Steven Sims is a "little fireball." Says his rookie wideout is simply "electric with the ball in his hands."— Ryan Fowler (@FowlerRyan1) August 30, 2019
Gruden on Cam Sims: “hes had a strong camp... it’ll be tough to narrow it down to five or six guys.” Gruden said he doubts they’ll keep 7 wideouts— John Keim (@john_keim) August 30, 2019
Cam Sims is having his left hand examined by medical staff in the locker room. Looks like maybe his left ring finger is bothering him. Just exited with someone on the staff— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) August 30, 2019
On the receivers. Gruden mentions the tough battle all summer and that it will be hard making cuts. Says 5 or 6, but doubts 7. That's interesting if so.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) August 30, 2019
Gruden says he doesn’t know yet on McKinzy in terms of Philly yet.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 30, 2019
FWIW he was walking around the sideline.
