      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On WR Rashad Ross performance:
      He is, he really is, hes doing a great job. Even in practice he makes splash plays every day. We talk about taking advantage of opportunities. He is one of the guys that really has opened our eyes, its going to make it very tough come tomorrow. Youve got to do the math, weve got a good group of wideouts we feel really good about. He just made it very interesting.

      On QB Colt McCoys performance:
      I thought he was solid. He did some good things, moved around a little bit. We didnt protect him very good at times but overall I think he managed the game. Did a nice job, put us in a position to win and thats what Colt does. Hes a consistent quarterback, he doesnt make many mistakes and he will always keep the game close for you at the end.

      On the growth in Ross knowledge from last year to this year:
      His knowledge of the system, for sure. Last year he was kind of moving around a little bit. He was unclear of where to go, how to line up, what routes to run. Just not sure, now hes got a lot more confidence as far as his mental capacity is concerned. Hes doing a great job. When he knows where he is going he gets there in a hurry. He shows no fear; he caught a couple inside breaking routes. Took some hits, obviously we know he can run outside. Ive just been very impressed with him.

      On Ross and WR Evan Spencer:
      It is something we have to talk about tomorrow and the next day. Wed like to have our fifth receiver be a special team demon, like somebody who can run down on kicks. We already have a couple punt returners in house with Dre [Andre Roberts] and Jamison [Crowder]. Ross can also do that. He can return kicks and might be our best kick returner too. He is going to make is very interesting. We need the extra receiver, fifth or sixth guy, to be a good special teams player.

      On injury updates:
      [Spencer] went through the concussion protocol. Hes still inactive, he needs to see an independent guy. Trey Williams hurt his ankle tonight. Hell be day-to-day Im sure. Josh LeRibeus had a mild calf strain.

      On the status of QB Robert Griffin III:
      He is going tomorrow to see a couple people.

      On the status of WR Jamison Crowder:
      We just held him out tonight. He couldve gone tonight but his hamstring is about 90 percent and we want to make sure he gets to 100.

      On his assessment of LB Jackson Jeffcoat:
      I think hes done well. Hes more of a defensive end, hes been playing some outside backer, obviously in base. Then in nickel and sub, he does a great job rushing the quarterback. Hes made his mark. At the absence of [linebacker] Junior Galette, its opened a spot for another pass rusher, outside linebacker type. Hes got an excellent chance. We will go back and look at the film and compare him. Well get [linebacker] Houston Bates out there. Well have to wait and see.

      On his feelings in going through his second preseason:
      It was smooth. I think the whole process training camp, knowing what to expect, knowing the players a little bit better the second time around, the staff, schedules its been a smooth deal for us all. I think weve really done an excellent job getting our players ready to go. Coaches have done a great job. I feel like the players have been prepared and they play hard. They are competing. Thats what I like about our guys we compete every day at practice and it carries over at the game. The ones, the twos, the threes, and its been consistent. If we just continue with that approach of competing every single day, great things are going to happen for this franchise.

      On if Griffin could be cleared tomorrow:
      I dont know. Hes got the neurologist, the psychologist. Hes got two of them to see tomorrow, he told me tonight. But yes, he could get cleared, obviously.
