Gruden: Redskins won't shut down players unless necessary

WASHINGTON (AP) Coach Jay Gruden doesn't expect the Redskins to sideline several banged-up players just because Washington has fallen out of playoff contention.

Gruden says the team and training staff will evaluate injuries on a "player by player basis." Four players missed Washington's game at Dallas on Thursday night along with 15 already on injured reserve.

In a conference call Friday, the day after a 38-14 loss that dropped the Redskins to 5-7 and crushed their slim playoff hopes, Gruden said players who are able to take the field will do so. A couple of exceptions might be left tackle Trent Williams and tight end Jordan Reed as each has missed time with significant injuries.
