Impressing throughout training camp and the preseason, tonight marks one final opportunity for several Washington Redskins running backs to showcase their talents before the 53-man roster is finalized.
“We have five or six running backs that are competing very well,” said first-year head coach Jay Gruden earlier this week. “So the decision will be made not until after the game against Tampa on Thursday, but it’ll be a tough one, as they all will be.”
Before they take the field in Tampa Bay tonight, hear what some of the running backs have to say about the chance to make more noise below:
Lache Seastrunk on where he wants to fit in:
“There’s a lot of great running backs in this group, and I’m honored to be around them. I’m just trying to see where I fit in at.”
Evan Royster on his pass-catching:
“I wasn’t really in a whole lot of situations where we were catching balls out of the backfield in the past couple years. It’s been good to get that stuff on tape this preseason and hopefully the coaches see it.”
Silas Redd on continuing his strong preseason performance:
“I’m thankful and blessed that I’ve got the opportunities that I’ve been getting. I can’t stop applying the pressure now and I’ve got to keep moving and keep going forward.”
