Ron Rivera Presser: “There’s always been a competition for the positions on this team”

Ron Rivera, Scott Turner, and J.D. McKissic speak to the media after today’s practice

Antonio Gibson was working with the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd teams today, along with special teams which was noted by nearly every reporters at today’s training camp practices. Rivera addressed this by noting that rookie Brian Robinson Jr. was doing the same thing. This was not the case in previous practices, and comes after Gibson fumbled the ball in Washington’s preseason opener against the Panthers which led to a TD for Carolina. Gibson was replaced by Robinson, who scored a touchdown, before coming back for another series. Gibson’s fumbling problems since being drafted in the 3rd round are well documented, and have been discussed extensively this week, and that discussion won’t die down until Gibson has a significant stretch of games without dropping the ball, or has a monster run/scores multiple TDs in a regular season game. Robinson was drafted in the 3rd round this year for a reason, and is expected to see game action early and often this year.
