Jack Del Rio speaks to the media while Ron Rivera is dealing with a family issue in California

Jack Del Rio talks to the media after today’s practice

It was announced this morning that Ron Rivera was in California to deal with a family matter involving his mother. He is expected to fly back to Virginia tonight, but in the meantime, Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio ran practice, and also filled in for Rivera in his weekly presser. Del Rio talked about the players appreciating Taylor Heinicke’s grittiness/scrappiness, and also used the same terms for Indianapolis Colts new starting QB Sam Ehlinger.

Chase Young is close, according to Del Rio, but the team decided to wait another week before starting his 21-day window for the team to evaluate him before making a decision whether they will activate him or shut him down for the season. Young will meet with the doctors again, but he is working hard and mentally engaged.
