    Duke Ihenacho starting status up in air for Week 2

    Recently signed safety Duke Ihenacho has not yet been given the nod to start ahead of second-year player Bacarri Rambo or even receive significant playing time Sunday for the Redskins against Jacksonville, per the Washington Post. Jay Gruden, who confirmed that Ihenacho was healthy for the opener in Houston, will defer to his defensive coaches to determine how much Ihenacho plays in Week 2. "It's just a matter of how much [Jim] Haslett and Raheem [Morris] feel about him mentally moving forward," Gruden said. "I think right now they feel confident that he can step in there and play a lot of reps and not have any issues. Whether or not he'll play in front of Rambo and how many will be determined, probably [Friday] or Saturday."
