      REDSKINS QB ALEX SMITH

      On how the team responded to last week’s loss throughout the week in practice and during the game:
      “I think the toughest thing about it - you play this game long enough, it can be humbling - the margin of error is so small. Even that Monday night, I think with the travel coming home, we didn’t get back until 4 or 5 a.m. Tuesday, short week, good football team coming in… physical football team, to use that as motivation, put it behind us, prepare, recover, all that stuff for this game, I thought the team did a heck of a job. Everybody included in that. Tall task. It was hard to move on from that. It lingered… it definitely lingered. But I do hope that the sense of urgency, the preparation that we had this week can kind of take it with us as we move forward.”

      On if the “lingering” had a positive effect to keep everyone sharp:
      “No, I think that you want to go to a game to prepare in the right way, I feel like we’ve done that every week. There’s so many little things and variables that go into that. The games only mount and they only get bigger and bigger and this week’s a great example of that. They just get bigger. The goal is that it’s still so early in the season that you continue to move forward, you continue to improve from every game - good or bad, all the stuff in between. ...

      REDSKINS HEAD COACH JAY GRUDEN

      On injuries:
      "No injuries of note. Brandon Scherff just tweaked his knee but he came back into the game."

      On the character of the team after ups and downs:
      "Well I think it's good. I think that’s the way this football season is going to be for a lot of teams in the NFL. I don’t think anybody can enjoy success all the time. You're going to face adversity and we have to meet it. It was great to see our guys bounce back after a tough performance on Monday night on a short week against a very talented and very well coached Carolina Panther football team, so I'm happy. You know, [we're] 3-2 right now and we faced adversity throughout the game but everybody kept fighting and stayed together, stayed positive ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On injuries:
      "Did not participate was [Troy] Apke, hamstring; [Josh] Doctson, heel; [Shawn] Lauvao, calf. Limited were [Josh] Norman, hamstring; [Adrian] Peterson, ankle; Paul Richardson, shoulder; [Brandon] Scherff, knee. Full were Zach Brown, oblique, and Ryan Anderson, hamstring."

      On WR Josh Doctson's injury:
      "He got kicked in the heel on Monday on our bonus day and is sore. He'll be day to day."

      On if he fears that Doctson will miss the game:
      "Fear? No fear. [Laughter] I don't know he's day to day so we will have to wait to see how he improves, get him out there running, hopefully by tomorrow or the next day."

      On RB Adrian Peterson:
      "He did a little bit today. He did good. He did fine. We did some individual with him, got a couple of team reps and then we sent him in to get some more rehab, but he looked good. He wanted to cut a few times and did and is making progress."

      On making a decision on G Shawn Lauvao's and where to play ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      Opening statement:
      "Tomorrow we shall give you the updates on the injuries. So, you're going to have to wait until tomorrow."

      On WR Josh Doctson not practicing today:
      "We will give you an update tomorrow on the injuries, John."

      On if Doctson's absence is injury related:
      "I don't know. I can't remember. [Laughter] Is that it? [Laughter]"

      On if he feels QB Alex Smith is underappreciated compared to other quarterbacks in the league:
      "Yeah, probably, you know, statistically, he's probably not where those guys are, but production-wise as far as wins and losses, he's got to be up there close. I know we're happy to have ...

      QB Alex Smith

      On RB Chris Thompson being more than a check down running back:
      "I mean it's hard to sum up. I've been really impressed. I think for a back of his stature, how hard he runs, how well he runs between the tackles, how tough he runs. There have been several plays this year already; you've seen his physicality show up in protection as well for a smaller back. I think it's easy to label those guys as kind of scat backs, specialist-type backs, but I don’t think Chris is limited in that way. I think he's a guy that can do everything and has a ton of tools. Certainly the toughness and physicality that he brings is part what – it will make that happen."

      On New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees closing in on the NFL record for career passing ...

      Greetings to everyone here in BGO land and greetings to all of our friends on social media. We hope you become a member of the family here.

      The jubilation of week one turned into the scorn and disappointment of week two. The following week saw a return of excitement and jubilation. All of a sudden, good fortune has shined on the Washington Redskins ...

      REDSKINS QUARTERBACK ALEX SMITH

      On responding to the Packers’ defense and making deeper passes:
      “I thought there were some good looks. You never know when the opportunities are going to present themselves, I mean, that’s what you work all week preparing for, identify them, pull the trigger and hit them when they’re there. We had some great opportunities and I thought our guys made some great plays down the field. Paul [Richardson] started us out with a heck of a catch and to finish it off with a touchdown. A lot of guys, there were a lot of short throws and long runs which are always nice as well.”

      On mixing the running and passing game:
      “We had a great mix going. I thought we had them on their heels in the first half. They didn’t have a very good beat on what we were doing, run and pass. It was fun. When you’re playing like that and rolling offensively. I’m glad we got the playmakers to do all that stuff, run and pass. You know unfortunately for us, I think all of us offensively in the second half there was a little bit of the shoulda, woulda, coulda and hoping we could have done it differently. There were some opportunities there too. We had some field position and weren’t able to capitalize so we still have a lot of room left for improvement.”

      On production with TE Jordan Reed and TE Vernon Davis:
      “It’s ...

      REDSKINS HEAD COACH JAY GRUDEN

      On injuries:
      "The only injury of note is Morgan Moses, concussion. He got evaluated for a concussion [and] stayed out of the game."

      On the running game this week vs. last week:
      "We had a lot of opportunities to get it done, convert on some key third downs, Alex [Smith] with his legs, some other thirds downs. We were able to stay on track and hit some nice jumps. In the fourth quarter there when we needed it the most, Adrian [Peterson] was able to make a big impact.”

      On DL Jonathan Allen:
      "Yeah, Jonathan played good. You know, the whole defensive line, they continued to rush, continued to pressure Aaron [Rodgers] as best they could. They had some great rushes. They had some tough downs in there, but what I liked best ...
