Rookie corner Fabian Moreau has impressed corner Josh Norman. "It's no joke what he's putting out there on the field," Norman said. "He's going to be a great talent. But he's still got to work on some things."

Running back Rob Kelley on rookie Samaje Perine, who rushed for 45 yards on nine carries: "He was a whole different player from last week. You seen the Samaje that you saw on YouTube when you watched his highlight tape."

One good note for the Redskins: No injuries. Coach Jay Gruden said nobody emerged with anything other than a few scrapes or cuts. Right tackle Morgan Moses sported a bloody lip after the game, but said he was fine after missing a couple plays following an awkward fall.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he's not concerned with the run game. "I know the guys we have up front... we have to execute better." He also said he'll see if there are better plays he can call.

The Redskins lost their second preseason game, 21-17, to the Green Bay Packers. Rookie Samaje Perine stood out in the second half, gaining 45 yards on nine carries, and showing improvement over the opener. But the starters needed the entire first half to generate much of an attack. Quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 14-of-23 passes for 144 yards and a touchdown, but the offense struggled vs. Green Bay's starters.

Rookie Samaje Perine looks better tonight than he did in the preseason opener. He hit the hole harder than he did vs. Baltimore, picked up a blitz and made a nice adjustment on a wheel route for a long catch and run. Coaches wanted to see him run without thinking and to show better in protection.

The Redskins trail, 14-10, at halftime and even though they drove for a late touchdown, it hasn't been a good showing for the first-team offense. Coach Jay Gruden kept them out a quarter longer than expected. Starting running back Rob Kelley managed nine yards on nine carries – and the starters faced Green Bay's backups the last two series. It's also apparent that quarterback Kirk Cousins needs more work with receivers Terrelle Pryor and Josh Doctson.

The issues with the Redskins' run blocking stem from all over this summer. At times the starters all have missed a block that's led to a loss or a bad run. The tight ends need to help more, too. And the Redskins' play-action game hasn't been successful at all; that has to be a big part of their offense. They've shown zero rhythm in their passing game – even when the protection has given quarterback Kirk Cousins time.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The Redskins can't be happy with the poor blocking in the run game and the lack of success in the pass game. They made it a point of emphasis to run the ball better and, as of late in the first quarter, they have failed. The Redskins want to run the ball more this season, but have yet to look like a team that can do so. It's only the preseason, but the coaches had hoped to see more.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The Redskins' starting offense continues to do little this preseason. In four series, the Redskins have yet to gain a first down and, in their first two runs Saturday, they've rushed for three yards. Quarterback Kirk Cousins lacks any rhythm in the pocket or with his targets and, once again, threw too high to Terrelle Pryor. Both times he's thrown to Pryor this preseason he's been too high, though Pryor has made those catches in practice.

Redskins corner Josh Norman shot an imaginary bow and arrow after being introduced. He was fined for a similar act during a game last season.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Rookie end Jonathan Allen will start at defensive end tonight in the Redskins' base defense with Terrell McClain at the other end and Ziggy Hood at nose tackle. Allen played in the Redskins' nickel package with the starters in the opener.

Receiver Josh Doctson is in uniform for tonight's game vs. Green Bay and going through pre-game warmups. He had a good camp before his hamstring injury so it'll be interesting to see how he looks in his first action of the preseason.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

It's just a preseason game but the Packers fans still show up on the road. There's a decent amount of Green Bat jerseys in the stands behind the Packers' bench.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Receiver Josh Doctson is going through pre-game warmups and running well. There's been no official word on if he'll play tonight after missing time with a hamstring injury.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The Redskins waived receiver Kendal Thompson from their injured reserve list with an injury settlement. Thompson was on their precise squad last season but was unable to practice this summer while recovering from a leg injury.
