What you missed: Redskins Day 1 camp coverage includes Cousins, Doctson, Marshall

Day 1 topics from Breaking Burgundy included the Josh Doctson injury update, Kirk Cousins speaks and a Reyes of light on the defense line.

Because you were living life, it's quite possible you missed some or most of the action from Day 1 of Washington Redskins training camp. That's each morning we'll have a recap of the all the news, notes, features, interviews, videos and any other coverage from Breaking Burgundy's team on the ground in Richmond.

First round pick Josh Doctson (Achilles) and four other players were placed on the physically unable to perform list

Gruden says injured players are close -- What does that actually mean?

Here is Cousins' take on if it is discouraging to not have his new toy Doctson available to him. The Michigan State product dropped some truth on how you cannot look at injuries as an excuse.

“I don’t know that I’m discouraged. I guess I’m a little disappointed that he’s not healthy but that’s the way the NFL works. You look at last year, we lost Kory Lichtensteiger for much of the season, we lost Jordan Reed for a stretch, we lost Niles Paul, we lost Logan Paulsen. Guys get injured, that’s a part of this game and it has to be next man up. You have to find answers no matter what. No one wants to hear the excuses about how you had injuries. No one puts an asterisk next to your record at the end of the year that you had injuries, so you have to find a way – or make one. That will always be the focus no matter who’s healthy or who’s not. We’ll be praying for Josh to get healthy as fast as possible. We do believe he’s a great talent and can help us so we’re excited not just for this week or next week but for the long haul for what he can do for the Redskins.”

Keith Marshall: The Interview -- Hey, until the Redskins sign a veteran RB, why not the fastest player at the combine stepping into the backup role behind Matt Jones?

Kendall Reyes -- Stepping up to help fill the shoes left by Junior Galette's Achilles? Fine, Reyes isn't that kind of pass rusher, but he could push for a large role on the defensive line.

Kirk Cousins -- No hard feelings. I got over a 3000% raise

Training Camp Observations -- Everything you need to know about what actually happened on the field including the day's surprise player.
