The fourth-round pick from Clemson made several huge plays against the Cowboys, including back-to-back pass breakups against Bryant that thwarted a Dallas touchdown drive. Those plays were the result of the intense study Breeland has dedicated himself to after some tough learning experiences prior to the Cowboys game.
“You have a pretty good sense if a guy is going to get it or not by how much they really study the game, and he’s here later than just about anybody watching tape,” Gruden said. “He really studies the game, wants to be great and it’s carrying over.”
Today the Redskins lost Breeland to a knee injury and his return is questionable for Sunday’s game and he will also head to the Doctor’s for an MRI today.
