Mike Shanahan Full Transcript: 10/10

On Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013, Redskins HC Mike Shanahan addressed the media following afternoon practice at Redskins Park in Ashburn, VA.


On the injury report:

"[Nose tackle] Chris Neild did not practice. [Linebacker Brandon] Jenkins and [tight end Logan] Paulsen again were limited. [Tight end] Fred Davis, [kicker Kai] Forbath, [running back] Alfred [Morris] and [tight end] Jordan Reed – full practice."

 On how he will determine if defensive end Jarvis Jenkins and linebacker Rob Jackson will play on Sunday:

"What kind of shape they're in. You look at practice for three days and you go into Saturday evaluating them on how sore they are, how tired they are, if you think they're in football shape, can they help you win." 

On how the defense would benefit from them playing:

"Well, that's what we're trying to decide now through the three days of practice. Can they help us, what kind of shape they're in, and if not, we don't dress them."
