Scott Turner Presser: “Dwayne Haskins Jr has gotten more and more confident”

Scott Turner speaks to the media after today’s practice

Scott Turner is heading into his first Week 1 game as an offensive coordinator, and he sounds like he’s ready for the challenge. He’s excited for the new offense in Washington, and he says the players are too. Turner wants to do anything to keep defenses off balance, and they’re prepared for multiple scenarios when they face the Eagles on Sunday.

The Washington Football Team kept 4 running backs when they trimmed the roster down to 53 players on Saturday. Turner says they all present different skills to every situation. Peyton Barber had a great camp, and has a big role in this offense. J.D. McKissic earned his chance to be a starter. Bryce Love has been improving as he works back from his ACL injury almost two years ago. Releasing Adrian Peterson was difficult, but the development of the young RBs was a big part of it.
