Quotes: Jay Gruden (12-8-17)

Head Coach Jay Gruden

On injuries:

"Out will be [Jordan] Reed, hamstring; [Montae] Nicholson, concussion; [Maurice] Harris, concussion. Questionable will be [Zach] Brown, [Morgan] Moses, [Trent] Williams, [Terrell] McClain, [Chase] Roullier and [Martrell] Spaight."

On if WR Maurice Harris had a setback:

"He's just out."

On the precedent of T Trent Williams playing on Sundays after practicing on Fridays:

"Usually that's the case? Well, hopefully that's the case. We'll see. Like I said, with Trent and Morgan, both of them will be how they feel on Sunday. We'll get them out there early – a couple hours before – let them run around and see what they're like and we'll make our decision."

On the impetus for Williams sitting during a portion of individual drills:

"I don't know. He is just sore. He's just sore."

On if there is an update on DL Jonathan Allen:

"No, I mean, he is making progress. He's still rehabbing and we'll see how he does. This is not something we are going to rush back like I've mentioned before. The most important thing is to get him to 100 percent and then when he does feel good with that foot, be able to get him into good football shape. If we get him back this year for the last game or two that would be great. If not, it won't be the end of the world for him."

On WR Jamison Crowder's week:

"He's been good, water off a duck's back for him. He just has to forget the past and move forward. I think all of our guys have done that. We've had a good week of practice. Jamison is a big part of this team, a big part of this offense and special teams and he will bounce back."

On who will be the punt returner:

"Jamison is the guy. D-Hall [DeAngelo Hall] will be the backup."
