“It was a good learning experience,” Martin said. “Assignments and techniques is really the main focus. If you do those things right, then everything else will just kind of fall together.”
Quarterback Case Keenum, who started the first four games, is questionable with a foot injury, and will not start in any case. Coach Jay Gruden named Colt McCoy the starter on Friday and declined to say whether Keenum would be the backup if healthy.
Center Chase Roullier (knee) and wide receiver Terry McLaurin (hamstring) are both questionable after being limited in practice all week. Neither played last week, and Gruden called McLaurin a game-day decision after not having him go full speed in Friday’s practice.
“Questionable is a great word for him right now,” Gruden said about McLaurin, a productive rookie who still leads Washington in receiving yards and touchdowns despite missing a week. “It is probably 50-50 with him.”
Cornerback Josh Norman (knee) is listed as questionable but was a full participant in Friday’s session. Linebacker Josh Harvey-Clemons (hamstring) is out after not practicing all week.
For New England, running back Rex Burkhead (foot), safety Patrick Chung (heel), safety Nate Ebner (groin), wide receiver Julian Edelman (chest) and linebacker Dont’a Hightower (shoulder) were all listed as questionable.
Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon (knee) and defensive end Michael Bennett (shoulder) did not receive an injury designation after being full participants Friday.
