      Burner’s Burning Questions – The Fifty-Three Man Roster And Practice Squad, 2015


      Only one game of the preseason remains as ninety players are vying for fifty-three positions on the roster and ten slots on the practice squad. By 4 pm EDT on Tuesday, rosters must be whittled down to seventy-five players and the final fifty-three will be determined by Saturday. The battles have been intense and now injuries are starting to take an even greater toll. Extra scrutiny ...

      STATEMENT BY NFL INDEPENDENT NEUROLOGIST ROBERT N. KURTZKE ON QUARTERBACK ROBERT GRIFFIN III


      “Per discussion with Neuropsychologists and with Anthony Casolaro M.D., we had anticipated yesterday that the patient would be cleared for full participation in gameplay this weekend; however, upon further scrutiny today of the neuropsychology data, I agree with the neuropsychologist that he should be held from gameplay this weekend and be retested in one-two ...

      Maybe it's the fact that this is the third preseason game-the one where everyone gets a glimpse of what the current version of what the starting lineup will look like playing another teams version of what their starting lineup will look like.

      It could be the geographical proximity of the Ravens and Redskins to each other.

      Whatever it was, the problems of finding hardly anybody saying anything about the upcoming game with the Redskins for a Redskins Recon ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On injuries:
      “Corey Crawford has an Achilles strain. Akeem Davis, hamstring; Frank Kearse, shoulder. They will be held out of the game. We’re checking Junior Galette for a left ankle issue. And Jordan Reed has progressed very well. He had two good days back-to-back and he looks like he is ready to go.”

      On what happened with LB Junior Galette:
      “We’re checking for ankle.”

      On if the injury to Galette will keep him out of the game against Baltimore on Saturday:
      “Yes, big chance.”

      On if the added responsibility of kick returner and punt returner is too much for a rookie like WR Jamison Crowder:
      “We’ll see. We haven’t seen him out in a game yet. We’ll see if it’s too big for him, but based on everything ...

      QB Kirk Cousins

      On his performance tonight:
      “I liked it. I thought it was a good night. Not just when I was playing but I think the whole offense we did a good job. We got the win - which is most important. We protected the football. We made plays. In the short amount of time that I was in there, I felt good about what we were able to accomplish.”

      On if he thinks his athletic ability is underrated:
      “I don’t think it’s underrated. I just think I need to use it more. I don’t use it enough. I’ve been watching tape on a lot of these good quarterbacks and they move around. The pocket is imperfect. You have to be able to make plays off schedule. I think I’m capable of that I just need to do it more and be aware of those opportunities and that’s a work in progress.”

      On if he knows next week’s plan for the quarterbacks:
      “No, I don’t think so. Usually I find out about it the morning of when I’m going to play. I don’t really ask ahead too much. I don’t expect to know too much ahead of time. NFL sometimes stands for the ‘No Feedback League.’ You never ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On quarterback Robert Griffin III :
      “Robert, he had a concussion. He is following concussion protocol at this time. Obviously he won’t be fielding any questions. We will get a further exam and do all the things we have to do.”

      On Griffin’s shoulder:
      “They checked his shoulder and the concussion, obviously, but his shoulder is okay.”

      On if hits affected how long Griffin played:
      “No, we felt confident in our tackle and our offensive line to try and get something going there with the fourth drive. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen.”

      On the reason for the sacks:
      “I’ll have to check the film out, I don’t know. ...

      Preseason game 2-against the Lions looms and once again preseason individual games take on their usual air of "Who we playing now?"


      The preseason is being taken by many fans, myself included, as not all that important in the scheme of things other than an extension of training camp-a chance to evaluate new players-and new coaches as well; the beginning of the weeding-out process to finalize the roster and depth charts. Thus, it's usually hard to ...

      On injury updates:
      “Keenan [Robinson] was held out today, had a sore Achilles. He should be OK, day-to-day. We’ll see how he is tomorrow. [Will] Compton, same thing; he went through individual today and we will get a better gauge tomorrow. Most of these guys, they’ve done individual to see how they are for treatment today and then see how they are feeling in the morning, get to the hotel and make a decision for Thursday night.”

      On cornerback DeAngelo Hall and wide receiver Jamison Crowder:
      “I think they’re in the same boat. DeAngelo hurt his toe and he is going to try to go. He wants to play really bad. He knows he needs some reps here and there to get back ...
