  Redskins | Duke Ihenacho claimed    Sun Aug 31, 09:48 PM

The Washington Redskins have claimed SS Duke Ihenacho off waivers from the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: The move makes a lot of sense for Washington. Ihenacho is a hard-hitting safety, but he struggles in coverage. Washington needs help at the safety position because FS Brandon Meriweather has been suspended two games for his sixth violation of the player safety rules.

Washington Redskins SS Akeem Davis has been placed on no-recall waivers.

  Redskins | Evan Royster not fast enough    Sat Aug 30, 10:24 AM

Free-agent RB Evan Royster's (Redskins) lack of speed and physicality were the main reasons why he was released by the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: They just determined this now? Everyone under the sun (outside of Washington) knew that Royster was a plodder coming out of Penn State. The sixth-round pick from the 2011 NFL draft could find a home somewhere.

  Redskins | Injuries hurt Chris Thompson    Sat Aug 30, 10:20 AM

The Washington Redskins liked free-agent RB Chris Thompson's (Redskins) speed, elusiveness and pass-catching abilities, but he was released because his durability issues. Thompson missed time last season and was only able to play in two preseason games this season.

Footballguys view: Thompson just couldn't stay healthy. Watch out for a team like the Browns to show interest. Thompson was selected in the 2013 NFL draft by Mike Shanahan, and his son Kyle Shanahan was the OC in Washington last year.

  Redskins | Lache Seastrunk could return    Sat Aug 30, 10:19 AM

The Washington Redskins would like to sign free-agent RB Lache Seastrunk (Redskins) to their practice squad if he is not claimed off waivers. He was cut because he needs time to improve his play.

Footballguys view: Seastrunk has incredible straight-line speed, but he's not much of a receiver out of the backfield. Plus, his pass-protection leaves a lot to be desired.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin III regressing?    Thu Aug 28, 05:51 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III isn't playing consistently, according to ESPN analyst and former NFL quarterback Ron Jaworski. Jaworski said Griffin must learn to throw from the pocket instead of running so frequently. Jaworski also added that Griffin's mechanics have worsened, including his footwork and throwing.

Footballguys view: Jaworski has never been RG3's biggest fan but he's clearly struggling in the pocket. Of course there are calls for Kirk Cousins, who is a natural pocket passer but his success in the preseason is against guys who my not be playing next week. We still see Griffin as a borderline QB1 or high end QB2 and believe he will improve as the season moves on.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson to play    Thu Aug 28, 01:29 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ankle) will be able to play in the final preseason game after missing the last two preseason games because of a sprained ankle.

Footballguys view: This might be the last time he gets a shot on a roster. Often injured and not as effective on third down as a guy like Roy Helu is, Thompson is a long shot to make the final roster and even if he does has no fantasy value.

  Redskins | No QB controversy in Washington    Mon Aug 25, 07:13 PM

Washington Redskins QBs Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins aren't involved in any kind of quarterback controversy, according to head coach Jay Gruden. The first-team offense has yet to score a touchdown in the preseason, and Cousins has somewhat outplayed Griffin so far.

Footballguys view: Washington's offense has looked bad this preseason. We'll see if Gruden and company can turn things around in the regular season. It wasn't that long ago that Cam Newton looked terrible in the preseason as a rookie, only to set records in his first season.

  Redskins | Brandon Meriweather suspended    Mon Aug 25, 05:46 PM

Washington Redskins FS Brandon Meriweather has been suspended two games for his sixth violation of the player safety rules.

Footballguys view: Nobody should be surprised by this news as Meriweather has a reputation as one of the dirtiest players in the league. His shot on Torrey Smith was just another mark against him in the eyes of the NFL.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed injured    Mon Aug 25, 03:05 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (thumb) is dealing with a sprained thumb but should be ready to play Week 1, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Reed has a history of concussions, so we'll take a minor thumb injury. The Washington offense has looked lackluster this preseason, so we're cool on Reed as a fantasy tight end--despite his talent.

  Redskins | Brian Orakpo injury update    Sat Aug 23, 11:12 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins LB Brian Orakpo's (ankle) ankle injury is not considered serious, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Washington dodges a bullet. Orakpo signed his one-year franchise tender this year, and he's set to enter free agency in 2015. With a big statistical season, Orakpo could break the bank next offseason.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin III dinged in exhibition game    Tue Aug 19, 11:07 AM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (thigh) is dealing with a bruised thigh suffered in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 18. Griffin said it is 'nothing to worry about' but that he must improve his sliding. He was hit hard a few times after the end of some scrambles and took a cumbersome attempt at a slide. 'When he gets out of the pocket, he needs to protect himself,' said head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Griffin's involvement in the running game is going to trend down under Jay Gruden, and this won't help matters. The hope is that Gruden's added passing game efficiency and DeSean Jackson's added playmaking ability will compensate for the running game stat losses and keep Griffin among the QB1s.

  Redskins | Stephen Bowen contract details    Tue Aug 19, 05:05 AM

Washington Redskins DE Stephen Bowen agreed to cut his base salary by $2.8 million this season under the terms of his new deal, but Bowen can make $2.05 million of that back through bonuses and incentives. Only a small chunk of that would count against the cap, so Bowen's restructure saves the team $2.3 million.
