Ron Rivera Presser: Saahdiq Charles looks good in practice and is getting 1st team reps at guard

Ron Rivera speaks to the media after today's practice

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Washington Football Team Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Ron Rivera gave an update that a lot of fans have been waiting for, rookie OL Saahdiq Charles is getting 1st team reps at guard! He said it was out of need that the former LSU OT was moved inside. Washington is getting Brandon Scherff back from IR, and he could possibly start this week. Wes Martin has struggled at left guard and been called out for it.

Rivera gave some clarification on the Dwayne Haskins Jr. illness story that started on Sunday when the former starting QB was sent home sick. Haskins also missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday. He reported to the team facility every day to receive his COVID-19, a new pandemic mandate this year. Haskins is dealing with some kind of gastrointestinal illness and was sent home both days. Rivera wants everyone to know the team is not keeping him from practicing, the doctors are.
