      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On the injury report:
      "Injury report, [Troy] Apke, hamstring, is out. [Shawn] Lauvao, calf, is out. Zach Brown, oblique, is questionable. Paul Richardson, shoulder, is questionable and Mo [Maurice] Harris, concussion, is questionable."

      On if WR Maurice Harris is still in concussion protocol:
      "I'm just doing what I'm told there with the trainers and we are going to find out tomorrow whether he can go or not. But, he's been cleared to practice. He's had a good week of practice and we'll find out the final word tomorrow; whatever the trainers and doctors tell me."

      On if Harris ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On injuries:
      "Did not participate were [Troy] Apke; hamstring. [Shaun] Lauvao; calf. Limited, Zach Brown; oblique. Paul Richardson; shoulder. [Brandon] Scherff; knee. Trent Williams, knee and Josh Norman had an illness, missed the first part of practice, but came back and practiced the rest."

      On the status of G Shawn Lauvao:
      "He's still walking pretty gingerly right now, so we'll have to see what he's like tomorrow."

      On the practice morale following a loss:
      "Well, we'll see. I think when you're practicing, guys are practicing, trying to study what they are doing, what the game plans all about, we'll see on Sunday. I think we understand that when you are playing an Aaron Rodgers led football team, Clay Matthews, Coach [Mike] McCarthy, they are going to make some plays. How we handle some type ...

      QB Alex Smith

      On finding the balance between check-downs and throwing passes downfield:
      "Yeah, I mean I think every guy on the team, certainly every guy on offense went through the game and what plays could I have done differently to help us. For me, in the first half of the game is maybe when I went through that in my head. Could I have taken a shot here? You know, all week we talked about being patient. The way they play defense, be patient. Let the shots present themselves. You don't anticipate in the first half that you're going to get in the second half and still be trailing. In the second half, very apparent, I mean they were not going to let anything get over their head or get behind them. It was so ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On what he feels went wrong against the Indianapolis Colts following film review:
      "First half, offensively: third downs. We had four plays and a punt, messed up on a route. Next time we had six plays a punt and we dropped a pass. Next drive, we had four plays and a punt. We got a ball batted at the line of scrimmage. Then we had a third and one, we did a little toss crack play, we didn’t get a puller, so just four, five drives there in the first half, third downs were the nemesis. We convert three of those things, you keep drives going, you get your run-pass ratio where you want it and you are controlling the game than we did."

      On the struggles with the run game on first down:
      "We had some struggles in the run game throughout the course of the game. ...

      REDSKINS HEAD COACH JAY GRUDEN


      On injuries:
      "As far as injuries are concerned, they all came back to play – Trent [Williams] and Brandon [Scherff] and Morgan [Moses]."

      On why the line struggled today:
      "Well, you know, hats off to [the Indianapolis Colts]. First of all, credit to Coach [Frank] Reich. Congratulate him on his first win. They came in here and outplayed us [on] both sides of the ball, special teams. Got in some tough situations, but we didn’t handle the movement you know, again in the running game more than the passing game. We couldn’t get any runs going. We had a lot of negative plays in the running game, which is unfortunate, and in the passing game, we couldn’t handle a lot ...

      REDSKINS QUARTERBACK ALEX SMITH

      On the team chemistry:
      "In the first half, I think a lot of things, certainly chemistry, rhythm; I didn’t think we had any of that. I didn’t think we were great on first or second downs. We gave ourselves some tough third downs in the first half, and then we didn’t convert so it was tough. Towards the end of the second half, I thought we finally did get in a rhythm but situationally even though we did put some drives together, but we stalled out, we stalled in the red zone. I think those are the two big things looking at it. Third down, red zone, it’s one of those days when you’re looking at a ton of opportunities but we needed to be better down there."

      On if Indianapolis Colts pressure or run defense was the factor in slowing down the Redskins offense:
      "Yeah probably, I think they both played into it. I thought both had timely pressure by them on third downs that cost us on conversions – certainly had ...

      I grew up watching the Joe Gibbs 1.0 Redskins. So my philosophy on how to win at football has been quite simple. Win in the trenches. That means that you win with your big offensive and defensive linemen. Of course, in the modern NFL, it helps that these big guys are also athletic. What I watched last Sunday felt like watching old school Joe Gibbs football with some modern west coast style techniques combined with some classic (would retro fit here?) run pass option schemes that ...

      On injuries:
      "Injuries: [Troy] Apke; hamstring, is out. [Maurice] Harris; concussion, is questionable. Paul Richardson; shoulder, did not participate, he’s questionable, and Morgan Moses; knee, was limited today and he’s questionable."

      On WR Paul Richardson Jr.:
      "He’s got a shoulder issue right now. We’ve got him as questionable, so we’ll see. I’m not overly concerned about it for this week."

      On if WR Maurice Harris is cleared for contact:
      "Well, yeah, I think the protocol is ongoing right now. He has to practice on a limited basis and then he has to continue to talk to the doctors and the trainers and find out where he’s at and that ...
