NFL Notes: Redskins, Titans, Vikings

 

Redskins

  • Redskins HC Jay Gruden announced that TE Jordan Reed traveled to Charlotte to see a specialist about his toe injury and there’s currently no timetable for his return.
  • Gruden added that Reed’s visit with the toe specialist is a follow-up visit and not an emergency trip because of a setback or anything like that.

Titans

Titans controlling owner Amy Adams tells Paul Kuharsky that they’ve already settled on uniform changes that will be rolled out next year.

We’re picked and done and now they go to Nike production and whatever they do after that,” Adams said.

As for the changes to the uniforms, Adams says they’ll fit with the team’s current look to some degree.

It’s not minor. It’s not a total color change or anything like that. I think everybody is going to be very pleased with where it went,” Adam said. “Like with a lot of changes around here, we were due a change. We’ll roll it out before the season, they’ll get to see it. I’m not sure for what yet, or when. …It’s going to be so fun.”

“It’s going to be totally updated. I think the fans are going to be excited. I’m not seeing other teams have anything close to what we will have.

Vikings

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer said second-round RB Dalvin Cook is really making an impression on the team’s veteran players this summer.

“The first thing the veteran players I’ve talked to about him say is, ‘This guy gets it.’” Zimmer told Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com. “He understands protections, he works hard, they see how he interacts in the locker room, and that’s part of it. And then, when you have a special player—like when we got [linebacker Anthony] Barr—they say, ‘Hey, man, this guy is different than other guys.’ That’s kinda how he is. They see him out there on the field with the other guys, and it’s like, ‘There’s something different about this guy, the way he runs, accelerates, the creases he can get to.’ He’s got a tough mentality. Players can see exceptional athletes. When they go out there and they’re going against guys, they can see: This guy is pretty good.”
