      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On the injury report:
      "Chris Thompson was limited; he went in individual drills only. Still looked a little tentative on it but he was doing it which was a good start, but he's got a little ways to go. [Barry] Cofield sat out, he had a little bit of soreness in his groin but he's going to be OK, mainly just monitoring him every day. But he's fine, he could have gone but we chose to keep him out. Who else? Tracy Porter had a hamstring, kept him out. It looks like it's a mild one but… he's probably questionable to doubtful for the game… [Darryl] Sharpton's still out with a high ankle sprain. He's probably still doubtful for the game Saturday.”

      LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have acquired punter Tress Way via waiver claim. In addition, the team waived punter Blake Clingan.

      Quarterback Robert Griffin III

      On sliding to avoid hits:
      “I got caught in an awkward situation on the first one. I tried to slide. It was a bad attempt at a slide. And then on their sideline, I was in a situation there where I thought I was going to be able to get out of bounds, and he was running out of bounds with [tight end] Jordan Reed and he came back in. I had to protect myself, so that’s why I put my shoulder down. And then my third attempt was very successful. I got down and got out of harm’s way. It’s good to be continually a work in progress focusing on getting down in those situations, knowing when to fight for extra yards and when not to. The fans have nothing to worry about there. ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On quarterback Robert Griffin III protecting himself:
      “It is something that we have to continue to talk to him about, how important he is to this team and this franchise. When he gets out of the pocket, he needs to protect himself. He has a habit in his career of being able to get himself out of predicaments with his speed and his athleticism. But here, it is a 16-game season with the great talent across the league. He has to pick his shots and learn how to get down a little better.”

      On the game overall:
      “We had four turnovers. We had some key penalties and some stopped drives. We had second and goal at the two [yard line] and tried ...

      Browns fans have been talking about Jonny Manziel a lot-particularly recently as to whether he would get the start against the Skins. It looks now like Brian Hoyer will start-maybe the first quarter at least-but we'll get to see "Johnny Football" at some point-maybe in the second quarter.

      Anyway, I put together some posts in this (pre)-season's first Redskins Recon because they do relate to Monday night's game and because there is mention and allusions to ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On his plan for playing the starters on Monday night:
      "I'm shooting for at least a quarter, see how it goes."

      On if any players have been ruled out:
      "Maybe [Brandon] Meriweather. I think he took the day off today. He just got his toe drained a little bit, but he's got a chance to play. We'll wait and see."

      On if defensive end Jason Hatcher will not play:
      "Yes. Hatcher's out also, yes."

      On how the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge felt:
      "It was nice. It’s cold [laughs]. It's for a good cause, so it's good."

      On what he thought of Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel on film:
      "I haven’t watched him yet. I'm going to start that today, tomorrow we're going to start really trying to game plan. I know Coach [Jim] Haslett's watched him. I've been studying the other side ...

      On cornerback Bashaud Breeland’s citation:
      "I addressed it with him. We'll keep the conversation between us, but he's well aware of what he has to do to get it fixed and we’ve got to just move forward and hopefully he learns from a terrible mistake."

      On how disappointed he is with Breeland:
      "It's disappointing. He's a young kid and he's had a great camp and it’s a little hiccup, bump in the road for him that he's got to learn from that a lot of kids go through at his age. So he'll learn from it and we'll all move forward from this, hopefully."

      On if the competition level has picked up since returning to Ashburn:
      "Yeah. The most exciting thing was before we left Richmond, the offense really took it to the defense the last day and I think they ...

      i feel l that thinking this is an automatic 4 game suspension is premature. That is the max penalty for 1st offense of breaking a law regarding substance abuse. No drug test, no proof he was under the influence and I believe that they have no way to test him now. I don't even know if it puts him in the program or not.

      "According to the NFL policy on substances of abuse, players convicted of a violation of the law related to substances of abuse other than alcohol are subject ...
