Washington Football Team Special Teams Coordinator Nate Kaczor spoke to the media today. He said punt returns have been a little better this year, but they have dealt with a few injuries. Both Steven Sims Jr. and Greg Stroman have been placed on IR in the last few weeks. Kaczor said that WR Cam Sims is a “great example of someone who is taking advantage of his role.” Sims has been a standout special teamer throughout the season.

“The thing that’s in vogue right now and it’s important is having a player that can do punts, kickoffs and place kicking and also hold. That’s a large, wide skillset. He can do all of those. If the COVID thing happened to one of our players, we don’t know exactly which one it’s going to be. Having someone with that kind of versatility is key. He’s also has a nice, built frame. He’s explosive. He’s a talented player. So, the fact that he’s very versatile and talented makes him very intriguing. We’re getting to know him as a person, but he hasn’t been here very long. We’re liking what we’re seeing from him, but the versatility is the main thing right now under these circumstances.”

Washington center Chase Roullier also got a chance to talk to reporters. He said moving to a different position is never easy, but Saahdiq Charles has handled it well and is prepared to played when he gets the call. Charles was played OT in college, but has been taking 1st team reps at guard this week and is expected to start at LG in place of Wes Martin on Sunday.
