  Redskins | Evan Royster misses practice    Mon Jul 28, 04:30 PM

Washington Redskins RB Evan Royster (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, July 28, because of a strained hamstring. He was able to do some light work on the side with the trainers.

Footballguys view: Royster might be a fight for a roster spot with Chris Thompson, who has been drawing praise from the coaching staff. He needs to be out on the field.

  Redskins | Everette Brown signed    Mon Jul 28, 02:14 PM

The Washington Redskins have signed free-agent LB Everette Brown (Cowboys). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Brown has washed out in every stop he's made in the NFL. Originally a second-round pick for the Carolina Panthers in 2009, Brown has struggled with staying healthy and producing when he's not banged up. He had phenomenal talent coming out of Florida State, but he only has six sacks in four seasons as a pro.

  Redskins | Pierre Garcon tweaks hamstring    Mon Jul 28, 12:55 PM

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (hamstring) left practice Monday, July 28, with a slight hamstring strain.

Footballguys view: This is nothing be alarmed about, as Garcon has no major history of muscle strains and the initial reports are that it is nothing to be too worried about, but we need to monitor this to make sure that it is not a recurring issue through August. Andre Roberts would likely replace Garcon if he has to miss any time with the first team later in camp or the preseason.

  Redskins | Tim Hightower at practice    Mon Jul 28, 03:17 AM

Former Washington Redskins RB Tim Hightower, who suffered a torn ACL in 2011 and a subsequent infection, was spotted at Washington Redskins camp in the past few days. Hightower was medically cleared by doctors two months ago and wants to come back to the game.

Footballguys view: With running back injuries piling up early in camp, Hightower could certainly get a look somewhere by the end of August. He seemed to be at his best in a zone-blocking running game.

  Redskins | Evan Royster not practicing    Sun Jul 27, 09:15 AM

Washington Redskins RB Evan Royster (hamstring) is not participating in practice Sunday, July 27.

Footballguys view: Royster needs to stay healthy if he wants to make the roster. The team is looking for quality backups behind starter Alfred Morris this season. Roy Helu, Chris Thompson and Lache Seastrunk are all battling for position with Royster on the depth chart.

  Redskins | Evan Royster injured    Sat Jul 26, 03:58 PM

Washington Redksins RB Evan Royster (hamstring) is considered day-to-day with a slight hamstring pull.

Footballguys view: Royster is not a burner, so a hamstring injury can really take away the little speed and burst he has. We'll see if he can be the RB3 for Washington this year. He'll face competition for the spot from the likes of Lache Seastrunk and Chris Thompson.

  Redskins | Leonard Hankerson not rushing back    Fri Jul 25, 07:26 PM

Washington Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) has received clearance to start running but will not rush back to practice. 'I'm not sure how fast I can run, but I can run. It's about having some confidence in it, about being around 95 to 100 percent. I don't have the explosion yet. I come out here, I line up and run routes and it's not explosive. So, I know there's no reason to go out there yet. I'd probably just go out there and embarrass myself or something like that,' Hankerson said.

Footballguys view: Hankerson has been pretty unimpressive so far in his career and now with a loaded roster of receivers, he's not likely to see many targets. So why rush back? He shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy roster this season.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin III in sync with Andre Roberts    Fri Jul 25, 10:51 AM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III and WR Andre Roberts are displaying good chemistry in practice Friday, July 25.

Footballguys view: Good news for Roberts and the Washington passing game here. Roberts was upset when the team added DeSean Jackson earlier this year because he assumed he was going to be the WR2 opposite Pierre Garcon. He'll get over it, and now they will use him as a slot receiver. We're expecting a robust passing game from Washington this year, but Roberts has little fantasy value.

  Redskins | Jason Hatcher progressing quickly from injury    Thu Jul 24, 02:35 PM

Washington Redskins DT Jason Hatcher (knee) said he is progressing pretty quickly from a knee injury. "I want to get back on the field, but I know I've got take precaution," Hatcher said. "It's progressing pretty quickly. The trainers got a great game plan, so I'm just going to stick with it. Whenever they say I'm ready to go, I'm back on the field."

  Redskins | Robert Griffin III won't have many set run plays    Thu Jul 24, 10:18 AM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's designed running plays might be 'few and far between,' according to head coach Jay Gruden. He still has the green light to scramble as the situation dictates. 'I feel good where he's at,' Gruden said. 'He made some serious strides just in the spring working in the pocket and delivering throws and pulling it down and running when he had to run. That comes naturally but also comes with a lot of reps and playing the position.'

Footballguys view: Griffin won't put up the rushing numbers he had in 2012, but he will have a much better pass offense array of weapons and a more pass-friendly head coach. Top five fantasy value is within his reach this year.

  Redskins | Leonard Hankerson to start training camp on PUP list     Wed Jul 23, 04:04 PM

Washington Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) was placed on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 23.

Footballguys view: Back in Week 11, Hankerson tore his ACL and LCL. His availability for the start of the regular season is unknown at this time. Hankerson is squarely on the roster bubble after Washington added guys like DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts this offseason.

  Redskins | Roy Helu may have advantage over Evan Royster    Mon Jul 21, 06:28 PM

Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu Jr. is seen as a better pass catcher than RB Evan Royster by some of the coaches, which should help his chance to make the final roster.

Footballguys view: Helu does have an advantage, especially under new head coach Jay Gruden. He's a fine receiver out of the backfield and has good run-after-the-catch ability.

  Redskins | David Amerson improving, feeling confident    Mon Jul 21, 02:18 PM

Washington Redskins CB David Amerson said he's feeling confident going into his second year in the NFL. Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said Amerson still has work to do, but he's proud of how far Amerson has come, saying the second-year player has the skills you look for in a cornerback.

  Redskins | Brandon Jenkins may be on bubble    Fri Jul 18, 09:55 PM

Washington Redskins LB Brandon Jenkins may be on the roster bubble during training camp even though outside linebackers coach Brian Baker said Jenkins was the most improved player among the linebackers. Jenkins will have to show he can play well against the run and be more fluid in pass coverage. He likely will need to show he can contribute on special teams to have a decent chance to make the roster.

  Redskins | Andre Roberts might benefit from many weapons    Thu Jul 17, 10:46 PM

Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts has admitted since the signing of WR DeSean Jackson that he might have opted to go elsewhere had he known Jackson would be signed. However, Roberts might be one of the biggest benefactors of having WRs Pierre Garcon and Jackson, as well as TE Jordan Reed, in the offense.

Footballguys view: Roberts will get over it -- eventually. The team wanted to find a more dangerous weapon and clearly Jackson is that guy. Roberts is a better fit inside as a slot receiver anyway. He'll be able to get off the line cleanly and get downfield in a hurry. We're not expecting much from Roberts in terms of fantasy production, but put him on your waiver wire speed dial if he is more involved in the offense than most project right now.

  Redskins | Ryan Grant likely to make roster    Thu Jul 17, 02:22 PM

Washington Redskins WR Ryan Grant is likely to make the roster, in the opinion of Rich Tandler of ESPN Washington. Grant got praise from head coach Jay Gruden during offseason activities. "He plays like a 10-year veteran already," Gruden said.

Footballguys view: Grant has good hands and concentration when tracking deep passes. He has the body control to regularly adjust to poorly thrown passes, and Grant has good moves in the open field after the catch.

  Redskins | Brian Orakpo deal unlikely    Tue Jul 15, 09:28 AM

The Washington Redskins are unlikely to sign LB Brian Orakpo to a long-term deal before the deadline Tuesday, July 15. He'll play under the one-year franchise tender.

Footballguys view: We're not surprised by this news. Orakpo could break the bank if he has a monster season this year. He'll be a free agent next year, and there should be several teams interested in his services.

  Redskins | Ryan Kerrigan, Brian Orakpo receive praise    Mon Jul 14, 03:20 PM

Washington Redskins LBs Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo were described as being the best covering outside linebackers in the league by outside linebackers coach Brian Baker.

Footballguys view: Having both healthy will be a huge boost for the Washington pass rush. Orakpo is playing on a one-year franchise tender, so having a big year would equate to a big-money deal next offseason.

  Redskins | Aldrick Robinson no lock    Mon Jul 14, 09:16 AM

Washington Redskins WR Aldrick Robinson will have to show improved route-running ability so the team can use him on more than a handful of plays to make the team. He took some work as a jammer and gunner on punt coverage and return units in the offseason, which could also help him make the team.

Footballguys view: Robinson is a borderline talent who needs to make standout plays in the preseason in order to keep his roster spot. Washington upgraded their group of wide receivers this offseason, and that could push Robinson off the 53-man roster.

  Redskins | Three could be PUP candidates    Sat Jul 12, 12:39 PM

Washington Redskins DE Stephen Bowen (knee), DT Jason Hatcher (knee) and CB Richard Crawford (knee) are candidates to start training camp on Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: The PUP list for training camp is different than the PUP list for the regular season. In camp, teams can put a player on the PUP list and bring him back at any time. During the regular season, the PUP list prevents a player from coming back for six weeks. After that there is a three week grace period to determine if a player is ready, or if he needs to be put on season-ending Injured Reserve.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy could make the roster    Fri Jul 11, 01:54 PM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy could make the team if the team decides to keep three quarterbacks on the roster.

Footballguys view: McCoy gives the team veteran depth behind Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins. With Griffin coming back from the 2012 knee injury that plagued him last year too, the team would be wise to have a third QB just in case.

  Redskins | Alfred Morris busted out long runs    Fri Jul 11, 10:12 AM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris led the NFL with 10 rushes of 20 or more yards in 2013.

Footballguys view: Morris is a banger between the tackles who is intent enough (and has enough burst) to break off a big run from time to time. He's not much of a receiving option, and his longest carry was 45 yards last year. We'll see how much guys like Roy Helu or rookie Lache Seastrunk get involved in Jay Gruden's pass-happy offense. Morris has a current ADP of RB17 (3.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Competition at kicker    Fri Jul 11, 09:33 AM

Washington Redskins PKs Kai Forbath and Zach Hocker will compete for the starting job in training camp.

  Redskins | Ross Madison a long shot    Thu Jul 10, 04:21 PM

Washington Redskins S Ross Madison is considered a long shot to make the final roster at this point.

  Redskins | Bacarri Rambo will need to help on special teams    Thu Jul 10, 04:14 PM

Washington Redskins FS Bacarri Rambo will need to contribute on special teams if he wants to make the final roster. His chances of making the team will be helped by FS Tanard Jackson's suspension.

Footballguys view: Rambo was a bit disappointing last season, so expecting him to add something to special teams makes sense--the team needs production from him somehow while he develops into what they hope will be a starter.

  Redskins | Unlikely to bring in safety    Thu Jul 10, 02:30 PM

The Washington Redskins are unlikely to bring in another safety to replace FS Tanard Jackson, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Jackson is running out of chances but it sounds like Washington isn't worried about his absence short term. During camp, we may see them add someone depending on how the safeties look in padded practices. For now though it looks like things will stay as they stand.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin III praises Alfred Morris     Thu Jul 10, 02:07 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III thinks RB Alfred Morris is the biggest weapon on the team's offense. "I think everyone would lean towards DeSean or Pierre or Jordan Reed," Griffin III said when asked who the biggest weapon in the Redskins' offense is. "I think it's Alfred. With him, defenses have to make a decision whether to puts guys in the box to stop him or leave the box light and allow Alfred to go between the tackles and lure in the safeties. I think it will be interesting to see what defenses do against him."

Footballguys view: As we have said previously, Morris should hold enough value in this offense to keep him as a RB2 with high upside. He makes RG3's life easier by keeping defenses honest and is a threat for a big play at any time. Griffin is smart to keep him happy with a little extra praise.

  Redskins | Alfred Morris still has a lot to accomplish     Thu Jul 10, 02:07 PM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris still feels like he has a lot to accomplish. "It's been a whirlwind, really," Morris explained of his first two seasons. "It's been a blur almost, but it's definitely been fun and a roller coaster ride."

Footballguys view: New head coach Jay Gruden likes to throw the ball a ton, but he has had backs run the ball a lot as well (Benjarvus Green-Ellis for one) so Morris won't completely fall off the map. He'll lose enough touches to keep him from surefire RB1 status and we have him ranked accordingly--a high end RB2 with a ton of upside.

  Redskins | Ryan Kerrigan aiming higher    Wed Jul 9, 09:44 PM

Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan saw his sack total remain the same from 2012 to 2013, his forced fumbles and tackle totals increase, but his pass breakups dipped. Still, he has been very consistent. However, he is aiming higher in 2014. 'I'm tired of being consistent,' Kerrigan said. 'I want to be consistently really, really good. I don't want to be just consistently average anymore. I want to be consistently good.'
