“You can’t count the reps, you’ve got to make the reps count,” said Redd after Wednesday morning’s practice. “Being a free agent rookie, I know what my reps are going to look like, but that’s OK because I’m going to make the best of what I get. I feel great, you just can never be satisfied. You’ve got to keep pushing and keep grinding and I promise you that’s what I’m going to do.”

The good news is that the Redskins have a lot to choose from at the running back position. The bad news is that they can’t keep them all. There’s no room on a 53-man roster for six running backs, as much as Gruden and his staff may wish there was.

At this point though, they’re not ruling anyone out.

“I think we have some guys who can compete,” Gruden said. “Chris Thompson is doing a good job. Silas Redd’s battling for it. Evan’s doing a good job, and obviously our draft pick [Seastrunk] has a ways to go, but he’s got a chance because he can run.”
