Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said on Friday that he doesn’t believe the drama earlier this week in Ashburn detracted from his team’s preparation for Sunday’s game in San Francisco.
The Redskins will be without two starters against the 49ers on Sunday and the status of two others in up in the air.
The 49ers are the NFL’s fourth-ranked defense with 2,202 yards given up this season. The Redskins are 10th at 2,287 yards or eight and a half yards more per game than San Francisco.
When the Redskins drafted safety Phillip Thomas in the fourth round in 2013 they had him ticketed for the starting lineup either during his rookie season or at some point this season.
