Gruden to the podium in Richmond. He says they’re confident in the backs they have with Guice out. Which is not surprising.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 11, 2018
While Guice may be out for the year, Gruden provided some encouraging news on the Redskins' other top rookie.
Jay Gruden said Daron Payne will practice today. Unsure if he'll play vs. the Jets on Thursday.— John Keim (@john_keim) August 11, 2018
Gruden also gave some updates on others injured in Thursday's night loss at New England.
Ioannidis has an ankle sprain and a knee strain. He’ll be week-to-week.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 11, 2018
Gruden said Trey Quinn is OK. Might do some work today.— John Keim (@john_keim) August 11, 2018
In case you needed more confirmation, the Redskins officially placed Guice on IR today, along with several other roster moves.

And as Gruden predicted, Payne is practicing!
DaRon Payne is back in uniform. Doctson, Crowder and basically everyone else is too. Josh Harvey-Clemons still missing.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 11, 2018
Another day, another injury for the Redskins offense, as wide receiver Robert Davis has been carted off the field.
Robert Davis just got up limping and then was aided to the sideline by trainers. Cart is taking him from the sideline to the tent.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 11, 2018

Was told DE Matt Ioannidis will “miss a little time” after hurting his knee Thursday but that he’ll be ready for the season opener.— John Keim (@john_keim) August 10, 2018
The Redskins' ground game took a major hit Friday, but Maurice Harris likes Washington's passing attack, lauding the team's depth at wide receiver during an appearance on 106.7 The Fan's "Grant & Danny."

The Redskins are traveling to New England today. They’ll get their first live action of the preseason Thursday night at 7:30 p.m.
When you think of coaches comparable to Jay Gruden, Nick Saban obviously comes to mind. No?
One of the first questions I get this time of year when I do Q&A’s is “who are the UDFA’s who could make it?” My answers this year are Danny Johnson and Kenny Ladler. So I talked to them both: https://t.co/6IoW8Tm4Ur— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 7, 2018
Richardson says that the offense is different when Reed is in. He says that's one of the things that makes Jay Gruden special. He knows exactly how to use each guy to maximize what they can do.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 7, 2018
Monday, Aug. 6
Gruden said Trent Williams would be doubtful for Thursday's game. Again, no surprise. Says he could play, but doesn't need to right now. working way back in...— John Keim (@john_keim) August 6, 2018
On the other hand, Gruden provided some good news on another offensive lineman recovering from injury.
Shawn Lauvao, who had an ankle issue, expected to at least take part in individual work this morning.— John Keim (@john_keim) August 6, 2018

#Redskins are in shells today. No pads. Next time they put the pads on is probably Thursday in New England.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 6, 2018
On with The Sports Junkies this morning, Craig Hoffman said that Derrius Guice probably won't get double-digit carries on Thursday, but added that the rookie's already "solidified himself" as the Redskins' top running back.
Guys on the rehab/conditioning field today: Josh Doctson, Jamison Crowder, Kapri Bibbs, DaRon Payne, Brian Quick, Montez Carter and Demetrius Rhaney.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 6, 2018
Among the players working off to the side: Crowder, Swearinger and Doctson.— John Keim (@john_keim) August 6, 2018
Meanwhile, the Redskins have made a minor transaction.August 6, 2018
Some friendly fire on the practice field this morning, as Ryan Kerrigan shook up wide receiver Maurice Harris. Harris had one of the highlights of training camp so far with a ridiculous catch in practice on Sunday.
Ryan Kerrigan just smacked Maurice Harris pretty good on a reverse action and Harris is still shaking out his shoulder. We’ll see when he gets back in. Pretty big collision.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 6, 2018
Speaking of highlights, Vernon Davis showed that he's still got some bounce with a leaping grab over Fish Smithson.August 6, 2018
Undrafted free agent Danny Johnson also put Redskins fans on notice with a great interception this morning.
7-on-7 pick for Danny Johnson, who I talked to yesterday. Interview will be up later. Great play by him dropping in zone underneath a deeper route.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 6, 2018
Today's morning practice has concluded, and here are The Fan columnist Rick Snider's thoughts on the session.
OK, so that hot, sweaty practice is over and now the clouds are overhead for shade. Kind of a low-energy workout given conditions. Jordan Reed made some nice catches. Rob Kelley caught one off his fingertips. Guice continues to run strong. Kind of a same ole kind of day.— Rick Snider (@Snide_Remarks) August 6, 2018
After practice, the Redskins provided these injury updates.
Injury updates: Brian Quick (thigh contusion), Kapri Bibbs (knee contusion), Zach Brown (mild stomach strain), Josh Harvey-Clemons (hamstring) are all day-to-day.Guys who missed for rest: Swearinger, Doctson and Crowder.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 6, 2018
