And that's kind of how this process has been for me. The more I've been out there, the different looks I've seen from defenses against certain plays, the more comfortable I feel running this offense."
Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson made his long awaited return from a hamstring injury last week. While he appeared limited, head coach Jay Gruden is very happy with the progress he has made this week.

We saw this week, he really let a few go, running fast like we know he can do. The big thing is to get his confidence back and his speed and ability to stretch and push it. I feel good about the progress that he's made."
