NFL: Preseason-Baltimore Ravens at Washington Redskins Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden and Defensive Coordinator Greg Manusky spoke today briefly. The Redskins injury report remains unchanged from yesterday. Jordan Reed practiced for a 2nd straight day as ge works to get back from a concussion.

Injury updates:

Jordan Reed:

Paul Richardson Jr.:

Terry McLaurin:

"Yeah it could. You draft a kid like that with that kind of speed and his ability on special teams, you can’t discount the fact that he’s a great receiver. We had high hopes he could also be a flyer and do a lot of things on special teams and he might be needed to do that, we’ll see. Just depends on how the game is going and how he’s feeling, but definitely, he’s part of it.”

Daron Payne:

“I have high expectations for [Daron] Payne and I think he has high expectations for himself as does everybody else in this locker room. He’s a guy that works extremely hard. He’s stronger, he’s quicker. I think he’s got a chance to be one of the dominate linemen in pro football if he keeps on this track. Very exciting to watch him play. He’s excellent against the run, he’s powerful, he can rush the passer and we like him.”

Adrian Peterson:

Eagles offense:

“There are a lot of weapons; just overall from their talent as an offensive line, quarterback, tight ends, receivers. They are very talented across the board and in the back field. Even with [RB] [Darren] Sproles and all the years that he has played. I was coaching with him when I was out in San Diego. Just overall, they have some players across the board. They don’t really have any weak spots. So, we have to take advantage of the opportunities when they arise, if they arise.”

Landon Collins:

“I think confidence, overall just awareness, understanding defenses. It’s amazing; he’s a great kid coming out of Alabama, went to the Giants and we were fortunate to pick him up in the free-agent aspect. He’s just a football guy. Just talking to him, sitting down with him and just have conversations with him all the time. It’s just true blue. This is what he’s feeling, this is what he tells you. You go through with it. He’s a phenomenal player, and I look forward to what he’s going to do on Sunday.”

Jon Bostic:

"Oh, the scouting department, Alex Santos came over to us and asked us about him and stuff, and I said, ‘we looked at his film, and yeah he’s a pretty good player.’ We’re going back and forth, and then we sign him. I was amazed of how he developed in the system. I know he had a little bit of backing when he was in Indianapolis. Just overall, just a phenomenal guy, phenomenal player, I’m excited that we have him. He makes the checks, makes the calls, and does a lot of things. So, I’m excited to see him on Sunday as well.”

Jimmy Moreland:

"You got to make plays, that’s the name of this business. Usually, games come down to five, six plays. You know overall that if we make a play then it’s great. Overall, Jimmy’s done a great job in training camp, and we’ll see how he does on Sunday. We’re trying to debate between him and [CB] [Greg] Stroman. So, we’ll see how it goes.”

Montez Sweat:

“I think the biggest thing is when you get those defensive ends, that’s have always been in the three-point stance coming out of college, it’s really hard once they stand up. The biggest thing I see is his confidence and his ability to stand up. From our standpoint, that was a great thing. Even initially in the OTA’s and stuff, he did a great job. And then through training camp, same thing. Just with his takeoffs, with his vision and sightlines, which were awesome. So, I’m excited for him as well to see how he does on Sunday. We’ll be interchanging a couple of guys, but overall, I like what I see from Sweat.”
