Redskins Practice Update: Mike & Kyle Shanahan Speak
ASHBURN, VA (CBSDC)–The Redskins held their second practice today as they prepare for the Atlanta Falcons and a key secondary piece missed another day. Brandon Meriweather (knee) already has been ruled out for Sunday and Cedric Griffin (hamstring) didn’t practice again today and could miss his second game in a row. Brandon Royster (knee) & Brandon Banks (hip) were limited.
The Redskins did get some good news with wide-receiver Aldrick Robinson (concussion) who has been cleared and fully practice today.
Wide-receiver Pierre Garçon did play last Sunday after missing the previous two games due to a foot bruise. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan was happy to have Garçon back last game.
“It was good to have Pierre out there,” Kyle Shanahan said on Garçon. “I still know he wasn’t 100 percent healthy, but for him to show up and battle like he did…his presence was definitely felt on the run game.”
Kyle Shanahan also talked about Robert Griffin III running the two-minute drill and how “he handled it well” when his headset went out. Griffin III led the Redskins to a game winning field goal on the final drive.
