Washington Redskins Quotes and Injury Report

October 17, 2014
Redskins Park

Head Coach Jay Gruden

On the injury report:
"Ryan Clark was limited today - he is questionable. Akeem Jordan and Tracy Porter
are both out... Trent [Williams] was full today... David Amerson was full today - he
is questionable. Limited was Robert Griffin - he is out. Limited was Perry Riley -
he is questionable. Full was [Brian] Orakpo, Trenton Robinson and Darrel Young - all
three of those are probable."

On what cornerback David Amerson has to do to be ready for Sunday:
"That's up to the trainers and the doctors with the concussion protocol. Obviously
we take the concussions very seriously. We want to see him run around out there,
make sure there are no repercussions whatsoever and make sure he gets fully cleared.
Everything is on a positive track for him to play but I just want to make sure he
has got everything right about him."

On if there is anything to update regarding quarterback Robert Griffin III's status:
"No, nothing really to update. He is just doing what he is doing. He took a few more
reps today in the team periods, handing off and things of that nature and just
slowly but surely getting back into the flow. His progress will be up to the
trainers and the doctors moving forward."

On what Griffin III did in team drills:
"He did a couple scout team plays, just handing off - getting out of there."

On if wide receiver Leonard Hankerson or defensive end Stephen Bowen will play on
"That is a good question. We are not sure yet... Obviously, both of them look pretty
good. I think Bowen is probably a little bit more ready if he were to go. Hankerson,
probably we just need to see him a little bit more and make sure - because this is
the first time he has practiced with me, with our new system. So we just want to
make sure he has everything down before he goes - probably another week or two,

On the progress of nose tackle Barry Cofield, Jr.:
 "He is making good progress. Everything I have heard from Larry [Hess] in the
training room is he is doing a good job and coming along at a good pace. We
anticipate when he is eligible to come off he will be ready to go."

On the Titans' defense:
"What stands out about their defense? Well, they've got good players obviously. They
have got a good scheme. I know Coach [Ray] Horton. I've gone against him when he was
at Cleveland last couple years obviously. They do a lot of good things defensively.
[Jurrell] Casey is a load up there in the middle. [Derrick] Morgan is a good pass
rusher. They've got a good pass rush. In the back end [Jason] McCourty is playing
very well. They just have got a good all-around team defense. They mix up their
coverages. They're not overly complicated, but they do a good job playing their
defense and playing very sound football. So, it'll be a good challenge as every week

On preparing for multiple quarterbacks:
"You'll have a little bit different game plan for each one. [Jake] Locker obviously
has more movement skills. He's a very good runner - very fast, very physical, not
afraid to lower his shoulder and run people over. You have to be a little bit more
aware of him in the running as far as scrambling. There might be some calls you
don't call against Locker that you would maybe, possibly call against [Charlie]
Whitehurst. So, we'll keep a close eye on it obviously. We won't know until an hour
before the game who's playing, but it will have some effect on the calls that the
defense makes - very minimal, but some."

On if linebacker Will Compton has practiced with the first-team defense this week:
"Yes. Perry [Riley] has been limited. Will's taken all the reps with the first team."

On the reason for practicing indoors:
"Yeah, the field doesn't hold water too well. Too wet."
