​Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden spoke with reporters after the Redskins' 21-16 preseason victory over the Buffalo Bills Friday night at FedExField. Gruden discussed several topics, including the injuries the team suffered over the course of the game,

"[Ryan] Kerrigan has a groin strain, we’re getting an MRI on him tomorrow. Keith Marshall has an elbow sprain, MRI tomorrow. Morgan [Moses] has an ankle sprain, he’ll be day-to-day. [Quinton] Dunbar has a shin bruise, he’ll be day-to-day. Looks like it’ll be okay.”


When asked about the level of concern he has for the Kerrigan and Marshall injuries, Gruden replied, “We’ll have to wait and see. They’re both getting an MRI so we’ll find out tomorrow.”

The number one key to most all coaches preseason gameplan is to stay healthy at all costs, so Gruden has to be at least somewhat concerned that one of his best, if not THE best defender on the team, got hurt (Kerrigan).


Spencer Long also left the game for a few plays after rolling his ankle, but he returned a few snaps later.


In addition to the injuries the team endured last night, the ​Redskins also had a few on the injury report before game time. Second-year receiver Jamison Crowder is dealing with a sore knee, rookie receiver Josh Doctson has a sore Achilles, and Matt Jones is still dealing with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder. Defensive lineman Chris Baker had a sore quad and cornerback Deshazor Everette has a pulled hamstring. None of those players suited up last night.


Earlier this week Gruden was also asked about tight end Derek Carrier and if he would start the year on the PUP list. 


Yeah, that is a possibility," Gruden said. "That is something we will talk about probably after the game on Friday. He has been coming along well. He is working really hard with the trainers, doing some good things but how long it’s going to be, we’ll determine that after the game Friday but it is a possibility for the PUP.”
