WFT LBs Coach Steve Russ talks to reporters

The Washington Football Team's new LBs Coach Steve Russ stepped in front of the Zoom camera today to answer questions from the media. He talked about Cole Holcomb developing in his second season, and coaching Reuben Foster up for a return to the field. He also revealed that Ryan Anderson has been working exclusively with the defensive line. He also had some high praise for rookie LB Khaleke Hudson, and veteran Thomas Davis.

Steve Russ is a 2X Super Bowl champion a player, but is still learning as a coach which is one of the reasons he followed Ron Rivera to Washington. He looks forward to also coaching under Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio. He also liked the challenge of rebuilding Washington's defense.
