Another Season, Another Training Camp

Richmond, Va.- Several questions loom for the team as they enter another season.
The biggest concern is the absence of All World tackle Trent Williams.

The Redskins put Williams on the Reserve/Did Not Report list.

"No, I haven't no", was head coach Jay Gruden's answer when asked if he had talked to Trent.

Saturday was Military Appreciation Day sponsered by Geico. 


The players and coaches all feel honored to be able to give back to our armed forces.

"Yeah, it’s a great day, man," Gruden said. "It’s great to have these guys out here. You know, anytime we can support our troops, have them come out here and get a chance to meet them and shake their hand, it’s great for us. Hopefully they get excited to meet us, but we’re definitely excited to meet them. It’s a privilege."

Running back Derrius Guice, who missed all of last season is expected to show his talent as a battle for the running back position emerges between Adrian Peterson, Samjae Perine, Chris Thompson, Byron Marshall, and Craig Reynolds.

We’re going to continue to build on Derrius’ reps, for sure," Gruden said. "We just don’t want to give him 50 reps on the second day back from his injury, so we’re going to continue to build up his rep count and while he’s doing that, we get Samaje more looks, Craig Reynolds some more looks, you know, Byron Marshall some more looks and it’s a benefit for everybody."

The team will continue training camp through August 11 with several special days left, including Fan Appreciation Day on Saturday, August 3, Sunday, August 4 is Social Media Day, and Youth football day & Gatorade Junior Training camp.

ASHBURN, Va.- Jimmy Moreland, the consensus 1st team All American cornerback out of James Madison University admits he was worried when it got into the seventh round of the NFL Draft and his name hadn't been called.

"It felt like a weight lifted off my shoulders." Moreland said, "I didn't think I was gonna get a call that late, after the Redskins called it just felt like an accomplishment lifted up, I've been through a lot, I'm just glad I'm here now."

Moreland, from Royal Palm Beach, Florida has gotten used to this area, after starting four seasons for the Dukes. Last year as a Red Shirt senior Moreland

"You know [I went to school] two hours from here. When I got here, most people already knew who I was. A couple of people knew where I was from – Belle Glade, Florida." Moreland said.

Moreland is JMU's first NFL Draft selection since 2013 when former offensive lineman Earl Watford was taken in the fourth round by the Arizona Cardinals. He's also the second JMU cornerback to ever be taken in the Draft, joining 2010 sixth-round selection Scotty McGee.

To date, 10 former JMU stars are currently on active NFL rosters, including six from the 2016 national-championship team.

One of those 10 is team mate Andrew Ankrah, a linebacker listed on the roster as a first year veteran, who recently signed a 3 year deal with the team has been helping his fellow team mate out.

"After I got up here, Andrew called me immediately. Asked me if I need anything, and he helps me learn the ropes on and off the field." Moreland said.

"Yeah, he’s going to get his MRI, and CT stuff and all the other tests he has to do. We don’t have any information right now," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said after practice. "Just ran through a gap and stepped on [Tyler] Catalina’s foot and landed funny on his left leg so we’re going to get that checked out. We’ll hope for the best right now until we get the results. But, very concerning for sure. I’ll just have to wait and see before I get too emotional about it." 

Several media sources are reporting Foster has torn his ACL and may also have additional artery damage near his left knee including the NFL's Networks Ian Rapoport tweeted on Monday.
Foster, a third year NFL veteran was signed by the Redskins after the San Francisco 49'ers released the Alabama linebacker amid possible domestic violence charges that have since been dropped.

Several former Tide team mates were looking forward to Foster joining the Burgundy and Gold and were hoping to put all the negativity behind them.

"I didn’t [see his injury]. It is disappointing, but we cannot really say anything until his MRI, just waiting on that right now," Jon Allen said. "Personally, I think everything happens for a reason. God has his plan, you do not always know what he is going to do, but you got to have faith and like I said, we do not even know what happened yet, so we will have to wait for the MRI. He is definitely in my prayers and trust me, I know Rueben, he’ll be fine."

Clarke County Sports will post any official updates from the team on the status of Reuben Foster's injury and projected recovery.
