Washington tries out 14


Coach Jay Gruden has embarked on his first bye week as an NFL head coach by taking a look at 14 players via Tuesday tryouts.

As previously reported, quarterback Terrelle Pryor got a look-see in Washington. The other 13 to get tryouts were: running back Jeff Demps, running back Tim Hightower, tight end Chase Dixon, tight end D.C. Jefferson, defensive back Ahmad Black, defensive tackle Lanier Coleman, tackle Chris Faulk, tight end Tyler George, guard Maurice Hurt, defensive end Donte Paige-Moss, nose tackle Justin Renfroe, and defensive back Nickoe Whitley.

Hightower last played in the NFL for Washington in 2011, starting five games and rushing for 321 yards. Demps, a former sprinter, has bounced around the league since the London Olympics in 2012.
