RICHMOND, Va. Saquon Barkley Jersey . -- Theres no quarterback controversy at Washington Redskins training camp. Instead, theres plenty of optimism coming off a division title.Kirk Cousins is the unquestioned starting quarterback, even if he doesnt have a long-term contract and will be playing on the franchise tag. Coach Jay Gruden doesnt expect Cousins contract status to be a distraction at what is mostly a distraction-free camp.The contract will take care of itself, Gruden said Wednesday on the eve of the teams first workout. We wont have any conversations about the contract, about his future contracts, any of that stuff. All were going to focus on is this year and him getting better and being the best quarterback he can possibly be.Cousins maturation as a quarterback is the biggest reason for positivity after the Redskins surprisingly won the NFC East before losing at home to the Packers in the wild-card round. The Redskins cut Robert Griffin III as expected, and the 2012 No. 2 pick is trying to rejuvenate his career in Cleveland.Meanwhile, Cousins will make $19.95 million on the franchise tag, and the expectations are high for him after throwing for 4,166 yards and 29 touchdowns.Hes got a year out of film, people are going to study on him and hes going to have to study other people and prepare himself no differently, and were going to coach him no differently, Gruden said. Hes a great football player, made great strides last year. Were all excited about it. But hes got to continue that progress.Gruden wants his entire team to continue making progress and has already seen a noticeable improvement in the quality and quantity of in-house talent from when he arrived. And homegrown players will be counted on more than Washington first thought because of injuries.The Redskins wont have Junior Galette after the outside linebacker tore his right Achilles tendon, a rough development after he missed last season with a torn left Achilles tendon. Gruden said Galette was devastated but that the team will adjust, perhaps giving more responsibilities to young players such as Preston Smith, Houston Bates and Lynden Trail.For this football team, injuries are part of the game, Gruden said. We have to rebound. ... We still have some good pass rushers in here, and theyre going to have to produce.The Redskins could shift converted defensive lineman Trent Murphy back to outside linebacker, Gruden said, but thats not the plan for now.Its also not the plan to find outside help at running back behind Matt Jones, where Washington lacks any significant NFL experience. With Alfred Morris gone, Jones will shoulder the load, and the Redskins hope to get what they need from Chris Thompson, Mack Brown and seventh-round pick Keith Marshall.We have some guys in the building were going to look at, Gruden said. And if it doesnt work out, were always looking -- every position. The scouting staff have their eyeballs across the league and whos available. But hopefully we dont need to go that route, but if we do, there are going to be good players we can talk about.During his camp-opening news conference, Gruden praised the good players the organization is in the process of developing. One of those was safety Kyshoen Jarrett, but a shoulder injury and nerve damage from the season finale in Dallas led to his release on Monday.Gruden said the news never came out to be good enough on Jarrett and hopes he can function in normal life outside football.Game notes Gruden said guard Shawn Lauvao (torn ligaments in left ankle) is feeling well and hopes hell be able to practice at some point during training camp. ...

And that was before having to watch Carlos Rodon tie an AL record by striking out the first seven Twins and Tim Anderson flirt with the cycle for the White Sox.I think a lot of people are looking for a chance to kind of put this one to rest, he said.Hours later, after the Chicago White Sox cruised to a 7-3 victory Friday night, the Twins had their most losses since the franchise moved to Minnesota: 103.You kind of get what you deserve, a subdued Molitor said.The Twins couldnt hit Rodon to start and couldnt get Anderson out while fuming at his home run celebration. Its the most losses for the franchise since the Washington Senators went 50-104 in 1949. The Twins, who moved to Minnesota in 1960, are 57-103 with two games left.Thats tough to swallow, right-hander Tyler Duffey said. But its part of the game, part of learning and part of getting better.Duffey (9-12) gave up five runs in two-plus innings to ensure Minnesota wont have a 10-game winner in their miserable season.Rodon quickly set the tone for Minnesotas dubious night that topped the 102-loss Twins of 1982.The 23-year-old lefty fanned Brian Dozier, Jorge Polanco and Robbie Grossman on sliders in the first. He got Miguel Sano on a fastball, Kennys Vargas on a changeup and saw Eduardo Escobar chase a slider in the dirt in the second.When John Ryan Murphy was caught looking at a 97 mph fastball to lead off the third, Rodon tied the AL record for strikeouts to start a game set by Joe Cowley of the White Sox on May 28, 1986, at Texas.Youve just got to throw strikes, go right at them, Rodon said.Logan Schafers ensuing double left Rodon one strikeout shy of the major league record to start a game shared by the Astros Jim Deshaies and the Mets Jacob deGrom.Rodons strikeout streak was 10 when figuring in the final three hitters he faced while fanning 11 in a victory Sunday at Cleveland. The last pitcher to strike out 10 in a row was Eric Gagne of the Dodgers over four ggames in May 2003. NFL Jerseys Authentic. Duffey gave up six hits while getting six outs. Omar Narvaez hit his first career homer in the fourth off Pat Dean as the White Sox built a 7-0 lead.Anderson, a rookie, finished a double shy of the cycle and irritated Duffey after hitting a two-run homer in the third inning.I mean he backpedaled out of the box. Stood there and enjoyed it, Duffey said. Its just one of those things. Its one thing to hit a homer. I gave up a 500-foot homer to Nelson Cruz and he jogs around the bases.Ryan ORourke threw behind Anderson in the eighth and both benches were warned. Anderson then grounded to third to end his chances at the cycle. He tripled and scored in the first and singled in the sixth.I wanted to hit a double. I did it in Double-A, Anderson said. When everything is clicking for you, I feel real great.Rodon (9-10) was dominant until a 31-pitch sixth inning when he gave up three runs -- two earned -- to end his night.
