Washington Redskins

  Inside Slant | Notes, Quotes | Strategy and Personnel | Player Wire

  Second-round pick Su'a Cravens is a puzzle piece the Redskins' coaching staff is still trying to solve. They wanted him to learn to play inside linebacker during OTAs and training camp despite a relatively slight 226-pound frame for the position. But Cravens can move. It's why he was considered a safety by many teams who had the USC star on their draft board. Washington might use him there in certain situations, but there will be nothing traditional about Cravens. On a team with a dearth of linebackers who can cover tight ends and running backs in space, Cravens shows that athleticism. He began training camp again working with the second-teamers at inside linebacker as he learns the nuances of that position. In nickel packages - something teams face so often during a game - Cravens can help. The coaches are just figuring out exactly how.

LT Trent Williams (right knee) practiced fully for the first time since Aug. 2. He has missed the first two preseason games but is likely to play on Friday against the Buffalo Bills.

WR Josh Doctson (left Achilles tendon) could begin a running program this week. On Monday, he continued to do footwork and strength drills. Doctson has not practiced since OTAs (May 25).

QB Nate Sudfeld led Washington on an 11-play, 84-yard touchdown drive to beat the New York Jets on Friday. The winning pass was thrown with 18 seconds left. Sudfeld, a rookie from Indiana drafted in the sixth round, is fighting to stick as the third quarterback on the 53-man roster. His brother, Zach, is a tight end for the Jets and caught a touchdown pass on Friday against the Redskins.

QB Kirk Cousins will play the first half and possibly into the third quarter in Friday's preseason game against Buffalo. The Redskins did not play Cousins in last week's game against the New York Jets and he has thrown just five passes in two preseason games so far.
