Pete Kendall Speaks
The guard, who arrived via trade just before the season began, is the second Redskin to meet the media today, following safety Reed Doughty. Pete is thinking most of his teammates right now, admitting that he did not have the chance to get to know Sean that well over the few months he has been here.
Kendall said his children saw the news on television before leaving for school, when they informed their father that his teammate was dead.
"The last I had heard (Monday night) was that he was somewhat responsive to the doctors ... So I went to bed last night thinking the worst thing we'd have to deal with was an extended rehabilitation and recovery."
Pete said Sean was among the first players to say hello to him when he was acquired before the season, and he also made a big impression on Kendall's kids after the season opening game, when they crossed paths in the parking lot.
"Sean spent some time with them, talking to them ... That made probably the biggest impact on them."
Pete said the team really has not assembled as a whole to this point to talk and cope as a unit, but when practice and meetings resume Wednesday he figures that will be a big part of the day.
Kendall last spoke to Taylor in the training room over the weekend, and figuring out how to move forward and regain a sense of normalcy is something he and his teammates will have to feel their through.
"Obviously it's going to be very difficult. We'll take our cues from Coach Gibbs."
