Redskins' Samaje Perine: Still unlikely to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

While he's happy about Perine's growth, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday that he still has full confidence in Rob Kelley and is excited about having the second-year player as his starting running back,Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Gruden seems to be shutting down any notion of a true job battle, after Perine's impressive showing in Saturday 's exhibition against the Packers reinvigorated the hype surrounding the rookie. Perine did well to gain 45 yards on eight carries and 29 yards on one target, but his prior preseason outing was a complete disaster that included a dropped pass, a fumble, issues in pass protection and a 6-15-0 rushing line. He still has time to push for a significant role early in the year, but the Week 1 starting gig may already be out of the question.

Redskins' Rob Kelley: Gets vote of confidence from Gruden
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday that he has full confidence in Rob Kelley and is excited about having him as the starter, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Samaje Perine's big preseason outing over the weekend may have reinvigorated the discussion regarding Washington's backfield, but Gruden's comments suggest Kelley is secure in his role as the Week 1 starter. That doesn't mean Perine won't also be heavily involved, nor does it mean Kelley will be immune to eventually losing the starting job. Gruden just doesn't seem to view it as a true job battle, which means Perine will need to continue his strong work in practice and preseason games if he's going to open the season with a significant share of the rushing workload. Passing-down specialist Chris Thompson will also be heavily involved, particularly when the Redskins can't establish the run and/or are forced into catch-up mode.

Redskins' Junior Galette: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Galette (hamstring) was an active participant during Wednesday's practice, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Galette's appearance at practice Wednesday bodes well for his availability for the season opener. The Redskins hope Galette can be a significant piece to their defensive puzzle this season, so it would not be surprising if they keep Galette limited throughout the remainder of the preseason.

Redskins' Jordan Reed: Practices fully Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Reed (toe) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Gruden also said the team is easing Reed back into the lineup, which would seem to conflict at least a little with the statement that he practiced in full. Gruden elaborated that he hopes Reed can play in Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals, noting that the tight end's participation in that contest is important but not critical. Reed hadn't practiced all summer until Wednesday, and he'll wear a customized orthopedic to give his left foot added support for the foreseeable future. There doesn't seem to be much concern regarding his Week 1 status, but his ability to stay healthy throughout the season is a different story entirely.

Redskins' Jordan Reed: Practices Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (toe) took the practice field Wednesday, running in individual and 1-on-1 drills, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Reed's activities included catching passes in the flat and running routes against the likes of safety D.J. Swearinger, according to Mike Jones of The Washington Post. Overall, Reed appeared to push off his left big toe well, but until he returns to a team setting his availability for preseason action will be up in the air. In order to avoid an aggravation, he'll be wearing a customized orthopedic to give his left foot extra padding moving forward.
