  Redskins | Nate Sudfeld to play entire game    Wed Aug 31, 01:19 AM

Washington Redskins QB Nate Sudfeld will start and likely play all four quarters against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Wednesday, Aug. 31. Sudfeld is expected to make the 53-man roster behind QBs Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld is an interesting dynasty prospect for two reasons; he's big and has a rocket arm. A prototypical pocket passer, Sudfeld sees the field well and can make any throw in the NFL. He's not going to move much, but with quicker decisions he could stick in the NFL. We'll be monitoring the rookie QB from Indiana in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Redskins | Keith Marshall done for season    Tue Aug 30, 07:04 PM

Washington Redskins rookie RB Keith Marshall (elbow) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Aug. 30.

Footballguys view: A seventh-round pick out of Georgia this year, Marshall was an intriguing dynasty prospect. This elbow injury wasn't supposed to be that serious, but perhaps Washington just wanted to clear up a roster spot. Without Marshall in the backfield, UDFA Rob Kelley is going to be the primary backup behind Matt Jones. Washington could always bring in another RB if need be.

Washington Redskins LB Perry Riley and DE Stephen Paea were cut Tuesday, Aug. 30. Riley's release saves the team $4 million against the cap with about $1.6 million in dead money.

  Redskins | Keith Marshall may go on IR    Mon Aug 29, 03:39 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Keith Marshall (elbow) may be placed on the Reserve/Injured list, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Marshall will miss three weeks with a sprained elbow.

Footballguys view: Marshall suffered a major knee injury during his college career at Georgia and was never quite the same player he was when he came out of high school as one of the best backs in the country. The injury bug has followed him to the pros with this latest problem. With Marshall down, Washington will turn to Rob Kelley. There's a chance that Kelley could start Week 1 if Matt Jones (shoulder) isn't quite ready.

  Redskins | Ryan Kerrigan day-to-day    Mon Aug 29, 03:13 PM

Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan (groin) is considered day-to-day with his groin injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Kerrigan is the team's best pass-rusher, and they don't have a ton of depth at the position. His groin was bothering him before their third preseason game, and it tightened up on him in the game.

  Redskins | Matt Jones making good progress    Mon Aug 29, 03:06 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) is progressing nicely, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Jones is dealing with a shoulder sprain.

Footballguys view: The original plan was to have Jones ready for Week 1 of the regular season. It seems like that's on track. Washington would have to start Rob Kelley if Jones ends up missing their first contest.

  Redskins | Cullen Jenkins signs with Redskins    Mon Aug 29, 12:23 PM

Free-agent DE Cullen Jenkins (Giants) signed a one-year deal with the Washington Redskins Monday, Aug. 29. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jenkins has now played for three of the four teams in the NFC East. He's no longer the player he used to be, but the seasoned veteran can give Washington some interior push as a pass-rusher on a part-time basis.

  Redskins | Keith Marshall out three weeks    Mon Aug 29, 09:21 AM

Washington Redskins RB Keith Marshall (elbow) will miss three weeks before being re-evaluated, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the rookie RB here. Marshall was competing for a spot on the depth chart behind starter Matt Jones. With Jones (shoulder) missing most of the preseason, Marshall had an opportunity to showcase his talent. Now that he's suffered an injury, Rob Kelley may end up as the Week 1 starter if Jones is not ready.

  Redskins | Keith Marshall undergoing MRI    Sat Aug 27, 09:57 AM

Washington Redskins RB Keith Marshall (elbow) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on the sprained elbow he suffered during the preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: No word on the severity of this injury. Marshall is in the mix for a larger role during the rest of the preseason with Matt Jones (shoulder) sidelined until the regular season. Rob Kelley is competing with Marshall for pecking order on the depth chart behind Jones.

  Redskins | Three scores for Kirk Cousins     Fri Aug 26, 11:50 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 12 of his 23 passes for 188 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a 21-16 preseason win over the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Cousins is going to be the center of his offense as much as quarterback this side of Drew Brees. He had more rushing touchdowns (5) than all Washington running backs combined last year. He's a value pick outside of the top 12 quarterbacks.

  Redskins | Rob Kelley runs well    Fri Aug 26, 11:38 PM

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley carried 12 times for 51 yards in a 21-16 preseason win over the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Kelley could start Week 1 against Pittsburgh because of injuries to Matt Jones and Keith Marshall - who wasn't necessarily ahead of Kelley anyway. He's a lunchpail runner between the tackles and should be picked up in all but short bench leagues.

  Redskins | Keith Marshall suffers injury    Fri Aug 26, 08:27 PM

Washington Redskins RB Keith Marshall (elbow) suffered a sprained left elbow during the preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 26, and will not return. He went to the locker room and underwent X-rays after suffering the injury.

Footballguys view: Marshall was already falling behind UDFA Rob Kelley for the #3 job. Depending on the severity of the injury, he could go on IR so the team can sign a veteran running back to provide depth with Matt Jones healing from an AC sprain. He's off of our redraft radar.

  Redskins | Ryan Kerrigan suffers injury    Fri Aug 26, 07:34 PM

Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan (groin) suffered a groin injury during the preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 26, and will not return.

Footballguys view: Kerrigan is a key edge rusher for a team that already lost Junior Galette for the season. Second year force player Preston Smith is on the spot for the defense that added Josh Norman this offseason.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson looking sharp    Thu Aug 25, 11:18 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson has displayed a greater focus this offseason, according to wide receivers coach Ike Hilliard, and CB DeAngelo Hall said Jackson has never looked better.

Footballguys view: Jackson is still the deep threat in a high volume passing game, and he can definitely be the kind of boom/bust WR3 that is an unfair advantage when he reels in a long score. He doesn't appear to be slowing down.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson expected to sit out    Wed Aug 24, 04:08 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (undisclosed) is not expected to play in the preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 26, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Thompson is a smaller back who has seen his career set back by injuries. Washington could use some help at the position with Matt Jones banged up too. Rob Kelley and Keith Marshall are going to get first-team looks with these injuries opening up opportunity in the Washington backfield.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson could be ready soon    Tue Aug 23, 06:52 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') could take the field as early as the Redskins' final preseason game. Head coach Jay Gruden said the 'total expectation' is for Doctson to be good to go by Week 1, although he is not at 100% health yet. Gruden does believe that Doctson is in a good place from a mental standpoint.

Footballguys view: Achilles' injuries are nothing to mess around with. Doctson is a savvy route-runner who could compete for the team's no.3 WR spot with Jamison Crowder. Look for Washington to ease him in the lineup.

  Redskins | Jamison Crowder has sore knee    Tue Aug 23, 03:45 PM

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (knee) did not practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, because of a sore knee, according to head coach Jay Gruden. He is rehabbing.

Footballguys view: Crowder was slated for some work out of the slot but he cannot stay healthy. We don't love the fit or the injuries and wouldn't waste a roster spot on him.

  Redskins | Matt Jones out for preseason    Mon Aug 22, 04:06 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) will sit the rest of the preseason because of a sprained shoulder, according to head coach Jay Gruden. RBs Keith Marshall and Rob Kelley will both get first-team looks in place of Jones.

Footballguys view: Jones may be able to return for the regular-season opener, but shoulder injuries are tough for RBs to overcome. The second-year pro has fantasy potential based on volume alone, but that's just as a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson not a lock to be ready    Mon Aug 22, 01:00 AM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') could open the season on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list, which would cost him at least the first six games.

Footballguys view: Achilles' injuries aren't something to take lightly. Washington should be as cautious as possible when bringing the rookie back from this injury. Doctson is a smooth route-runner who was used to being the centerpiece of the passing game at TCU. In the future, Doctson could be a reliable starter for Washington. For now, Jamison Crowder has the no.3 role all to himself.

  Redskins | Matt Jones will be back soon    Fri Aug 19, 11:20 PM

Updating an ongoing story, Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) suffered a slight separation of the AC joint of his left shoulder Friday, Aug. 19, and it 'won't be too long' until he returns, head coach Jay Gruden said.

Footballguys view: This is good news, but let's not forget that he fumbled and the Washington run offense has looked unimpressive to say the least. Jones has value on volume alone, but we shouldn't overestimate what this player can produce with this opportunity.

  Redskins | AC sprain for Matt Jones    Fri Aug 19, 09:37 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) suffered an AC sprain in his left shoulder Friday, Aug. 19.

Footballguys view: Depending on the grade of the injury, it could be anywhere from 2-4 weeks to surgery for Jones. Even if he's back for the regular season opener, a shoulder injury can be tough for a running back, because they take a lot of hits on the shoulders and use them to initiate contact on short yardage runs. Look for Washington to bring back Pierre Thomas or sign another veteran.

  Redskins | Matt Jones to undergo X-ray    Fri Aug 19, 08:14 PM

Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) left the preseason game early Friday, Aug. 19, and is getting an X-ray on his left shoulder.

Footballguys view: Chris Thompson will be the receiving down back for this team in any event, but UDFA Rob Kelley and seventh round pick Keith Marshall are jockeying to be #3 back, which is essentially the backup to Jones. They could sign Pierre Thomas or another veteran even if the injury to Jones isn't that serious.

'You'll see more of (Lauvao) in the next couple of weeks and we'll see how he does. That's good competition,' Gruden said.

  Redskins | Rob Kelley pushing Keith Marshall    Wed Aug 17, 10:40 PM

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley took more snaps with the second unit in practice Wednesday, Aug. 17, rotating with RB Keith Marshall. A week ago, there was a gap between the two entering the preseason game and there still might be. However, Kelley was not working with the second unit before the preseason opener.

Footballguys view: Marshall had best watch his back as Kelley is starting to cut into his reps. Marshall needs to improve his patience at the line and against the Falcons D-team, Kelley played well. They will both get a stout test from the Jets run defense this Friday, but it seems like the RB2 job in Washington is up for grabs.

  Redskins | Trent Williams uncertain for Friday    Wed Aug 17, 10:38 PM

Washington Redskins OT Trent Williams (knee) has been bothered by a knee issue, and he has went more than a week without taking full reps in practice.

He'll be very close to being ready,' Gruden said.

  Redskins | No timetable for Josh Doctson    Wed Aug 17, 05:03 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') still does not have a timetable for his return, but head coach Jay Gruden said Doctson will not be rushed back.

Footballguys view: Achilles' injuries aren't quite as devastating as they used to be. That being said, Washington should and will take it easy on the rookie as he returns from this injury. With Doctson down, it opens the door for second-year WR Jamison Crowder to work as the no.3 WR behind DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon.

  Redskins | Nate Sudfeld has chance to make roster    Wed Aug 17, 02:36 PM

Washington Redskins QB Nate Sudfeld has a chance to make the 53-man roster because he played well at times during the first preseason game and finished training camp off strong. The Redskins may try to keep Sudfeld on the practice squad, but he could receive interest from other teams if he continues to perform during the preseason.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld is a tall pocket-passer with the field view and arm strength to make him an intriguing prospect. Don't ask him to scramble, but Sudfeld has no problem being aggressive downfield as a passer. We'll see if the rookie can continue his strong play through the rest of camp and the preseason.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson not ready to return    Sun Aug 14, 02:50 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') will still be sidelined for another week or two with his Achilles' injury. There is a feeling that his left foot is getting better, though, and there is still optimism that he'll be ready for Week 1. General manager Scot McCloughan already said the injury is not a long-term issue.

Footballguys view: This was not a severe injury, but the team needs to be careful as the rookie recovers. If healthy, Doctson is going to compete with Jamison Crowder for the no.3 WR spot behind DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon.
