Ron Rivera didn't have any injury updates on Chase Young(groin) and Matt Ioannidis(arm) after they both left yesterday's game with injuries. Ian Rapoport reported that Young's injury was minor.

He did have positive news for WR Dontrelle Inman, there was no fracture on his left arm and he could be practicing this week. Rivera called the thin WR group their biggest concern. They will continue to ease Saahdiq Charles back into practice after he suffered a setback with his leg injury. They are hoping he comes back completely healthy.

Rivera has been very impressed with Washington's rookie class. Kamren Curl has continuously received praise from coaches. Rivera said he would have gone higher in the draft if he had workouts pre-draft. He has exceeded expectations and been playing a lot of good football.

Keith Ismael is in a great position to backup all three interior OL positions. Undrafted WR Isaiah Wright has been excellent. Rivera sees the progress every day. Wright was active for the first time yesterday and had 4 catches for 24 yards, and also made an interception-saving hit on a Browns defender.

Rivera said that Dwayne Haskins Jr. did stare down his receivers on two of his three interceptions. He went through his progressions too fast, and then got locked on a particular read. Haskins is still learning and growing, but at some point you're no longer a rookie. Rivera said other guys on the team are giving everything they have on the field to get a win, and mistakes like yesterday take that away. He said there would be a clear cutoff point for Dwayne if he stops progressing.
