Gruden said while the Redskins would have liked to have had Jackson in the mix for all of the practices, he trusts the eighth-year veteran to be prepared both physically and mentally to take part in the mandatory minicamp next week, and for training camp later this summer.
Meanwhile, Gruden declined to discuss the allegations of domestic violence that a woman leveled against rookie wide receiver Jamison Crowder via Instagram last week. Crowder’s agent maintained that his client is innocent, and the Redskins last week issued a statement saying that they were aware of the matter and had notified the NFL and were cooperating with the league on any search for additional information.
Crowder — the team’s fourth-round pick out of Duke — hasn’t received any disciplinary action from the team or league, and practiced on Tuesday.
Asked about the matter on Tuesday, Gruden said, “I really don’t want to make a comment. We’ll let the NFL — we’re aware of it, the NFL’s aware of it, and we’ll go from there.”
At his agent’s request, the Redskins declined to make Crowder available for an interview on Tuesday.
