      Linebacker Keenan Robinson

      On returning from injury:
      ďIím getting back to doing what I love to do. Obviously itís hard, been tough. Itís hard being away from the game for a year and a half, but for me, you know, I use that year and a half to prepare mentally. Obviously, physically, I had to rehab, which is more important, but mentally I think I gained some upside in my game, which will allow me to excel this year and thatís one thing I learned. Youíve just got to be able to take the bad with the good and persevere through any obstacle that life throws at you and my two injuries were a perfect example of that and now Iím ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On wide receiver Jerry Rice, Jr.:
      ďHurt his shoulder. Yeah, he had a test done today. Iíll know more once I get the results back, but itís pretty significant, I believe.Ē

      On when tackle Tyler Polumbus might return:
      ďIím not sure. He left for personal reasons and heís going to keep in touch. I believe heís coming back tonight was the last I heard.Ē

      On tackle Trent Williams, safety Phillip Thomas and wide receiver Pierre GarÁon:
      ďTrent just got kicked in the shin. Heís going to be OK. Phillip Thomas still has the pulled hammy. Weíre watching that very closely, day-to-dayÖ Pierre? Same, same.Ē

      Running Back Alfred Morris

      On the competition for the third down back job:
      "It's going great. I honestly love competition. Even my job is not solidified. You may think it is, but you never know in this business, so I'm always working to keep my job, always working to get better, but the competition even between the rest of us is amazing. We're all getting better and we're all learning. It's a new offense for us, so it's a lot. Even more has been put on our plates to know this stuff so we've been doing a great job of learning and going out there and executing and helping each other ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On finding the balance of how much read option to use:
      ďThereís no question, weíre still working on that balance right now. Today, he [Robert Griffin III] had the option to pull it. He pulled it and made a heck of a run, so heís obviously very good at the read option. Heís proven that he can do it, but heís also proven to come off a major injury here the last couple years. Heís healthy, but there will be a balance. I think we used some in Cincinnati with Andy Dalton and they used some here, so heís got experience with it. Heís good at it. Itís another way to attack the defense and get the numbers in your favor offensively. How much weíll do is going to be on a game plan basis and how he feels about it and how we feel about the actual play going in each week. But itís something that will ...

      Tackle Trent Williams

      On how good of an athlete he is and the number of positions he thinks he could play:
      ďFirst off, to answer your question, I think Iím a great athlete if you want to ask my opinion, but, I mean, I feel like I could play a lot of positions on the football field. Obviously I could play offensive tackle the best, but, you know, who knows? If I would have lost about 50 pounds, I probably could have been a nice tight end or maybe even an outside linebacker. Who knows, man.Ē

      On throwing the ball around at practice and if he could be a candidate for emergency quarterback:
      ďI think I definitely could be [smiling]. I definitely ...

      Iím not talking about the team name, paleface. Not even close chief.
      But these Redskins, glorious and storied moniker and all, will be the most offensive team in pro football in 2014.

      Iím going to engage in some bold talk today. Itís true, my name is John and Iím a homer. Iím familiar with the 12 steps. I even watch ĎInterventioní on A&E when time allows. But I donít need Redskins fan rehab like I have for most of the 20+ yearís worth of offseasons. Not this time around. Somethingís happening in DC, and thatís not just the Vicodin and Percocet talking.

      I donít need my annual renewal of faith and belief that Ďthis year could be the year ...

      On wide receiver Pierre GarÁon:
      "He left practice early. He had a couple catches and then just had a little soreness in his hamstring. He'll be OK.Ē

      On if he was pleased with the amount of contact on the first day of players being in full pads:
      ďYeah, I thought so. I havenít had a chance to watch the film but I thought the tempo was great. We had a couple of live sessions, some tackling drills and special teams, and then live sessions there at the end and some of them looked live Ė we're getting guys on the ground a lot which shouldnít happen. ...

      Safety Ryan Clark

      On how having more padded practices can help the defense:
      ďItís always good to get out there in pads. I mean, you play football in pads. I talked about it yesterday. Everybody thought it was a big deal that I had on pants, and I was like, ĎWell, we donít play in shorts.í So I think itís good that we get in pads. Physicality wins football games. We have to get used to being physical. We have to get used to hitting. The guys up front, whether itís blocking or fitting in blocks, in the secondary, fitting up running backs, fitting ...
