The Washington Football Team ruled out 4 players for this week's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Ryan Anderson(knee), Deshazor Everett(ankle), Cornelius Lucas(ankle), and Jared Norris(hamstring) are all out Sunday.

Rivera has been asked about the possible replacements all week, and that reality is likely to put Morgan Moses at left tackle, David Sharpe at right tackle, and Troy Apke at free safety.

Alex Smith:

Washington Football Team QB Coach Ken Zampese says Alex Smith's mobility has improved. He is very impressed with how Smith has progressed physically as he returns for a devastating injury.

Zampese has been teaching former starting QB Dwayne Haskins Jr. how to take better notes. He's not "out" on Haskins and said “There are very few who can throw the ball that way. ... Let’s not rush to judgement on anything.” but there is more to being a QB than having a big arm, and Haskins is learning that. Patience is key with Haskins.

QB Coach Ken Zampese spoke to the media about Alex's progression, what he has seen from Dwayne Haskins and more.
