  Redskins | Teammate doubts Alex Smith will play    Tue Feb 12, 03:14 PM

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is not expected to play this season, in the opinion of RB Chris Thompson. 'We know and understand that it's probably not going to happen that we have him this year,' Thompson admitted. The Redskins have discussed a new deal with QB Josh Johnson, but QB Colt McCoy is slated to start the year if Smith can't go.

Footballguys view: Smith's football future is certainly up in the air. Not only will he potentially miss the 2019 season, there is a chance that Smith may never be able to play football again. We hope that is not the case and will continue to monitor his recovery closely. Smith is in the midst of a an extensive recovery from a severe compound leg fracture late in the season.

  Redskins | Robert Davis still recovering    Thu Feb 7, 09:58 PM

Washington Redskins WR Robert Davis (knee, leg) said he is still about seven months away from being fully recovered and doesn't expect to be ready in time for training camp.

Footballguys view: Davis was seen as an interesting small school sleeper when he came out of Georgia State as a sixth-round pick for Washington in 2017. Since then, he's appeared in only one NFL game and spent the 2018 season on Injured Reserve. It sounds like he may not be ready to showcase his talent until into training camp...at the earliest.

  Redskins | Derrius Guice continues progress    Thu Feb 7, 09:50 PM

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) has progressed to the point that he is able to sprint at full speed.

Footballguys view: That's good news but he's far from being back at full strength. Guice injured his knee in the preseason but we learned back in December that he needed three more procedures to correct the initial surgery. If he continues to progress at a good rate, Guice should be ready some time around training camp.

  Redskins | Adrian Peterson talking numbers with WAS    Thu Feb 7, 08:35 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent RB Adrian Peterson said his representatives have been trading numbers with the Redskins in hopes of finding a contract offer that can work for both sides.

Footballguys view: Washington and Peterson may find a way to get something done before the veteran back hits the open market. He proved last year that he's got something left in the tank, and in 2019 Peterson would be splitting time with Derrius Guice.

  Redskins | Washington could target Teddy Bridgewater    Wed Feb 6, 02:08 AM

The Washington Redskins could consider going after New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater in free agency, according to ESPN's John Keim.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater hasn't been a full-time starter since 2015. He suffered a devastating leg injury with the Vikings in 2016 and has been working his way back since then. If Bridgewater can regain his pre-injury form, then Washington could get a quality starter for likely a decent price. They need all the help they can get at the quarterback position as Alex Smith may never play football again due to the leg injury he suffered last year.

  Redskins | Adrian Peterson has talked to Washington    Tue Feb 5, 03:10 PM

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson has had preliminary discussions in regards to staying on the team in 2019, according to ESPN.com's John Keim. Keim posits that Peterson would be a valuable pairing for RB Derrius Guice (knee), who is coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: Guice has plenty of natural talent when healthy, but his recovery from the ACL that cost him his entire rookie season has not gone smoothly. Peterson showed he can still get it done as a starting back and would give Washington a good option in case Guice isn't quite himself for the start of the 2019 season.

  Redskins | Adrian Peterson not stopping soon    Mon Feb 4, 03:14 PM

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson said he will be playing next season 'for sure' and believes he might have two or three years left in the tank before he retires. Peterson is currently not under contract for 2019.

Footballguys view: We'll see how much interest Peterson gets on the open market. He certainly resurrected his career in Washington in 2018. Peterson rushed for over 1,000 yards for the first time since 2015 and scored seven rushing touchdowns. No team will likely give him more than a one-year deal, but Peterson did prove he's still got something left as a starting back.

  Redskins | Alex Smith improving    Thu Jan 31, 08:20 PM

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is making improvements but is not looking too far ahead in his rehab, according to team president Bruce Allen. Allen denied a recent report that stated the Redskins are preparing for Smith to miss the entire 2019 season.

Footballguys view: Until we hear otherwise, it is best to assume that Smith will not be playing next season. The Washington pass offense was still one of the most anemic in the league with him at the helm, so Washington's targets and offense won't lose much as long as the team can competently replace him, which is not a given.

  Redskins | Josh Johnson could re-sign with WAS    Thu Jan 31, 08:12 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Josh Johnson is one of the players the team is trying to re-sign, according to team president Bruce Allen.

Footballguys view: Johnson was at least able to make Washington a credible competitor when he was in the lineup, although he does seem redundant with Colt McCoy as competent, but limited backups. The team needs to find someone better than McCoy or Johnson to start with Alex Smith's 2019 in question.

  Redskins | Rob Ryan finds a home     Wed Jan 30, 02:08 PM

Former Buffalo Bills assistant head coach Rob Ryan was hired by the Washington Redskins Wednesday, Jan. 30, as their inside linebackers coach.

Footballguys view: The NFL is more interesting when either of the Ryan brothers are on the sidelines. He can help with their decision on whether to cut Zach Brown and grooming young potential future starters like Shaun Dion Hamilton and Josh Harvey-Clemons.

  Redskins | Matt Cavanaugh demoted    Tue Jan 29, 05:19 PM

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh was demoted to senior offensive assistant Wednesday, Jan. 29, in light of new offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell being promoted.

  Redskins | Alex Smith not in 2019 plans?    Sun Jan 27, 01:57 PM

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is tentatively not in the team's 2019 plans as the general feeling in the organization is that he'll miss the season with complications resulting from broken leg this past fall, sources said Sunday, Jan. 27.

Footballguys view: Smith's leg had a huge apparatus on it when he was recently seen in public, lending credence to this report. The team could attempt to move up in the draft for a long term answer, but should also pursue a free agent like Teddy Bridgewater to start Week 1.

  Redskins | Washington talks with three QB prospects    Wed Jan 23, 09:42 PM

Duke QB Daniel Jones, Penn State QB Trace McSorley and North Carolina State QB Ryan Finley have met with the Washington Redskins at the Senior Bowl this week.

Footballguys view: Washington is likely to be in the market for a quarterback. Alex Smith is their starter but after a devastating injury in 2018, we may not see Smith anytime soon. His status for Week 1 is in serious doubt and we may not see him at all in 2019. Jones has been linked to Washington on #DraftTwitter and might be an option for them in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft.

  Redskins | Derrius Guice back on the field    Thu Jan 17, 10:10 PM

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) posted a video of himself on social media running and doing other drills on the field.

Footballguys view: In December of 2018, the Washington Post reported that an infection Guice's torn ACL required three additional knee surgeries. The 2018 second-round pick tore his ACL back in the preseason but has not had the smoothest of recoveries. The video is cool and a good sign, but we still think Guice is limited in OTAs this spring...if he's even a participant. We might not know much about his status until the start of training camp. Stay tuned.

  Redskins | Washington wants Jamison Crowder back    Mon Jan 14, 05:13 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Jamison Crowder, despite his struggles and injury concerns, could demand a contract worth at least $8 million this offseason. Nonetheless, head coach Jay Gruden wants to try to retain Crowder. 'There is really not anything that Jamison can't do,' Gruden said. 'You look at his size and say he's little, but he plays big. He's got great quickness in intermediate routes, can separate, has good hands, he's tough, he's physical in the running game.'

Footballguys view: Crowder could stay with the team for a good price. While talented, Crowder has been oft-injured as a pro and that might keep the market for his services somewhat cool. Crowder played better later in the year, but he was hampered by an ankle injury that caused him to miss seven games.

  Redskins | Tre McBride signed to futures contract    Wed Jan 2, 04:45 PM

Free-agent WR Tre McBride (Jets) was signed by the Washington Redskins to a Reserve/Futures contract Wednesday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: McBride was a seventh-round pick of the Titans back in 2015 when he came out of William & Mary. He's a return specialist who has done little as a receiver during his time in the pros.

  Redskins | Washington signs six players    Mon Dec 31, 05:46 PM

The Washington Redskins signed WR Carlos Henderson, T Roubbens Joseph, WR ArDarius Stewart, RB Elijah Wellman, DT JoJo Wicker and C Casey Dunn to Reserve/Futures contracts Monday, Dec. 31.

Footballguys view: Henderson was a third-round pick of the Broncos in the 2017 NFL draft. He is strong after the catch and has the speed to be dangerous with the rock in his hands. However, off field issues and a lack of discipline caused the Broncos to quickly move on from him. Stewart was also a third-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft. He lasted one year for the Jets before getting bounced, then he got a shot with the Raiders. Stewart, like Henderson, is all about run-after-the-catch ability. We'll monitor both former draft picks but only in super deep dynasty formats.
