WASHINGTON (AP) Somehow Cheap
Rashaan Gaulden Jersey , it was only after losing their top two
running backs and two starting offensive linemen to season-ending injuries that
the Washington Redskins found someone – Samaje Perine – to end a four-year
drought of a player rushing for at least 100 yards in consecutive games.
”His vision has been good,” coach Jay Gruden said Friday about the rookie
runner, ”and his decisiveness has been outstanding.”
Perine gained exactly 100 yards on 24 carries in Washington’s 20-10 victory
over the New York Giants on Thursday night. In the previous game, a loss at New
Orleans, he ran for 117 yards on 23 carries.
You have to go all the way back to Weeks 9 and 10 of the 2013 season to find
someone topping 100 on the ground two games in a row for the Redskins: Alfred
Morris. They’ll get a close-up look at Morris next week, when the Redskins play
at his current team, the Dallas Cowboys in a matchup of NFC East rivals who are
Perine, a fourth-round draft pick out of Oklahoma, got his chance to become a
starter and carry the full load because Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson were put
on injured reserve.
Perine is suddenly Washington’s season leader in yards rushing with 427 –
Donte Jackson Jersey , the same total he put up in one game for the
Sooners against Kansas in 2014 to set a college football record.
”It’s an unfortunate situation,” Perine said Thursday about the injuries to
his teammates, ”but I have to play for those guys, and that’s what I did
tonight. I went out and I was thankful for them, and everything that they taught
me in the short time I’ve been here.”
He didn’t exactly get off to a terrific start against the Giants, gaining 3
yards on five carries in the first half.
”We just had to stay the course,” Perine said, ”and then things started going
Gruden thinks it is not merely happenstance that the 5-foot-11, 236-pound
Perine was more successful as the game proceeded.
”You can see that he gets better as the game goes on Cheap DJ
Moore Jersey , so far, and that’s what’s been the most impressive,”
Gruden said. ”I’ve liked the fact that after his 10th carry, he’s better than
his first carry. And the 12th carry, he’s better than his 10th carry. He gets
better and better.”
And not exactly under ideal circumstances, either.
Center Spencer Long and left guard Shawn Lauvao went on IR this week, and
left tackle Trent Williams was absent, too, because of a painful right knee.
With backup center Chase Roullier out with a broken right hand, third-stringer
Tony Bergstrom got the start there.
”When you have a brand new center, and the left guard and left tackle haven’t
played together at all, it’s not easy. But those guys did a nice job. It starts
with Bergstrom, being able to come out there and make the calls, get people to
the right people,” Gruden said.
The coach also credited his runner.
”Samaje was decisive with his cuts,” Gruden said, ”and once he stuck his foot
in the ground, he was rolling downhill#4# which really we were impressed
NOTES: Gruden said he has ”no idea right now” when TE Jordan Reed might
return from a hamstring injury. He’s missed the last four games. ”The issue is,
when he does come back, we’ve got to make sure he’s 100 percent so this thing
doesn’t linger,” Gruden said. ”I don’t know if he’ll be back this week, the next
week or four weeks.” … Gruden said he hopes that Williams can return to face
Dallas. A ”major part” of why Williams sat out Thursday was that it was a short
turnaround after playing last Sunday. ”It would be nice to have the same group
one week to the next,” Gruden said about his offensive line.
