Redskins Continue To Monitor Kyshoen Jarrett's Progress


More than five months after initially suffering the injury, the Redskins continue to monitor how second-year safety Kyshoen Jarrett's is progressing from a nerve issue.

The Washington Redskins do not have a timetable for safety Kyshoen Jarrett's return to the field, but they continue to monitor his progress after the then-rookie suffered a shoulder injury that resulted in nerve damage on Jan. 3.

"He's been to see three specialists now and we're just going to wait and let it play out," Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said on Wednesday. "and then make a decision on what to do next."

Jarrett has been a spectator throughout the Redskins' offseason workouts that began in April. He occasionally worked out with his teammates during Phase 1 workouts in the weight room, but was limited in what he could do.

 Gruden said the team is going to get "all the doctors' reports" before addressing the impact the injury will have on him moving forward.

"I just want to make sure we know exactly what we're talking about before we talk about his injury," Gruden said.

Jarrett told in April that he has spoken with specialist Greg Roskopf, who helped current Redskins center Kory Lichtensteiger and former defensive end Jason Hatcher through their own nerve issues.

"I'm still finding out some information, some things that can help me in the long run and help me for the short-term as well," Jarrett said. "Information is still coming in and things are still being learned as well, I know those doctors in Denver that Hatch and those guys went to, he'll be able to provide me information. I've seen doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, too, so I'm trying to do the best I can in terms of finding out as much information as I can as well."

Jarrett was perhaps the Redskins' biggest surprise contributor last year, as the No. 181-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft appeared in all 16 regular season games as a rookie, totaling 63 tackles with two passes defensed and a fumbled forced.

"Every day isn't easy, but I try to continue to practice what I preach and that's something I did speak about and you know even since then, every day hasn't been easy," Jarrett said, referring to an Instagram post that was published days after the injury. "I mean there's days where it doesn't so much get the best of me, but it does have a mental impact at times because you're not able to do some things that were just second nature that you've just grown up doing. Just some things I have to rebuild. So I've just got to continue keeping that attitude that I preached before."

Without Jarrett on the field, the Redskins have been using others like rookie and fellow Virginia Tech product Kendall Fuller in the role he played last season.

 "You saw him play this year, you saw him at the corner, you saw him play safety; you saw him play some corner. He's got some team ability as well," Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan said in January.
