ASHBURN, Va. -- Last year Martrell Spaight was so sensitive to light that he darkened his sunglasses with a black marker.He is set to make his first NFL start for the Washington Redskins under the Monday night spotlight against Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. After missing his entire rookie season with concussion problems, Spaight earned the trust of the coaching staff to fill in for Will Compton at middle linebacker.Hes a young football player still with limited starting reps, but this is a great opportunity for him, coach Jay Gruden said Thursday. He hasnt had that opportunity other than preseason and a little bit here and there, so Im excited to see him. I love his energy. I like the way he hits, he hustles and hes good in pass defense.Spaight just being on the field is an accomplishment. A fifth-round pick out of Arkansas in 2015, he tried to play through concussion symptoms before Washington placed him on injured reserve and he went to great lengths to get back to normal.When he couldnt find dark enough sunglasses, Spaight grabbed a sharpie and darkened them so he could go about his rehab. In his bleakest moments of reflection, including the return of symptoms in September, he wondered if this whole football thing was going to work out after all.It was very difficult for me mentally because you work so hard and after a while you start questioning yourself, `Is it meant for me to play this game? Spaight recalled Friday.The 23-year-old got his answer last week at Philadelphia when he heard a coach yell out, Spaight, get your helmet. A knee injury to Compton forced Spaight into the starting middle linebacker role, headset and all, as the captain of the defense, and Gruden was impressed with how he handled those duties.So impressed that theyre all his Monday against Carolina.We like his athletic ability, Gruden said. Mentally, is he as far along as where Comp is? Well see, but he didnt have any trouble communicating the calls, so I feel very confident in Spaight. I think hes a good linebacker. Hes tough, hes physical, and weve just got to make sure health-wise he gets to where he can be productive.Spaight has been nursing a shoulder injury himself, but the adrenaline that has him struggling to stay calm now could help him get ready for the Panthers. Spaight haas felt his game make a heck of a jump from a year ago, and hes performing beyond his 12 games of mostly special teams pro experience. Asics Australia Outlet. Recognizing that hes still effectively a rookie, defensive coordinator Joe Barry, a former linebackers coach, still sees the linebacker intuition in Spaight.Its hard to teach instincts, its hard to teach awareness, Barry said. You can teach a guy how to key better, use his eyes, use his hands, use his feet, break on the ball better, take on blocks. You can coach and teach those things. You cant teach instincts. You cant teach awareness and thats always the toughest thing to evaluate because you really never know if a guy has those instincts and awareness until youre truly around him.Being around Spaight is enough to make Compton confident in his understudy. Working under Compton is one reason for Grudens faith in Spaight, but his game preparation is on another level, too.Hes always very adamant and humble in his approach to preparing for a game, Compton said. I have total faith in him. For him itll just be staying calm, staying focused, just not getting too high in the moment and just playing his game because when he plays he can play.After burying his own doubts about his future, Spaight will get the chance to play against a former league MVP in front of a national audience at the center of the defense.Just seeing that everythings better than it was, it just opened my eyes and showed that Im meant to play this game and I feel like this is my calling, Spaight said. Im anxious to go out there and show the world what I can get done.Game notes Along with Compton, rookie linebacker Sua Cravens didnt practice Friday because of an upper-arm/elbow injury. ...
