Jay Gruden held a phone conference with Redskins reporters yesterday, and Giants reportes today. He also held a presser after today’s walkthrough that replaced the traditional Wednesday practice due to the short week following Monday Night Football. Case Keenum is dealing with a foot injury, and Colt McCoy is slated to return to practice today. Gruden said that right now Dwayne Haskins Jr. is the backup, and he hasn’t seen McCoy throw a ball in over a month. Keenum is expected to be ready for Sunday’s game against the Giants, but that could change during the week.
