Ron Rivera Presser: The players believe they can win every week

Ron Rivera speaks to the media

Washington released their injury report on Thursday,, and the big name on it is rookie RB Antonio Gibson.. He left Monday's game after his 2nd carry and has been diagnosed with turf toe. Ron Rivera said it's very concerning, especially for a running back. The big toe is where the power and energy comes from. Gibson has been working with the trainer, but he is expected to miss at least this week's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Ron Rivera said the Carolina Panthers were considering drafting Montez Sweat in last year's draft. The decision came down to Sweat and Brian Burns who they ended up drafting. Quickness was the deciding factor, but he really likes Sweat's growth since entering the league.
