Ron Rivera Presser: Troy Apke didn’t play as bad as people think he did

Ron Rivera speaks to the press after today's practice

Ron Rivera gave some updates following today’s practice. Washington’s injury list got a lot longer this week after their trip to the desert in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Six players didn’t practice today, and RT Morgan Moses was limited(hip). Kendall Fuller was not listed on the injury report after missing the first two weeks, and most of training camp, with a knee injury.

Rivera talked about stopping the Cleveland Browns running game when they go on the road again to face them Sunday. Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt are a formidable duo that have been very productive this year. He said Washington’s RB corps has the ability to produce like Cleveland’s, but they are still young. Rivera also talked about the Browns’ WR group, saying they are still “trying to find themselves”, but they have the ability to get vertical.

Troy Apke has been a lightning rod for criticism in Washington’s fanbase, but Rivera said that he didn’t play as badly as people think he did. He also didn’t play as well as he is capable of. We Schweitzer took over for Brandon Scherff when he went down with an MCL sprain, but Rivera didn’t name him as the starter...yet. Scherff is on IR now, and the team’s depth chart lists Schweitzer. Rivera said they’ll be looking at a few options this week.
