  Redskins | Byron Marshall to miss time after all    Fri Aug 17, 03:00 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Byron Marshall (leg) is expected to miss two to four weeks of time, a source told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Previous reports suggested Marshall had received a clean bill of health after the preseason injury suffered Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: The injuries to Marshall, Derrius Guice and Samaje Perine increase the chances for Kapri Bibbs to make the final roster, and give UDFA Martez Carter more of a chance to show his stuff in the last two preseason games.

  Redskins | Samaje Perine's injury not considered serious    Fri Aug 17, 12:57 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) is expected to be fine after spraining his ankle in a preseason game Thursday, Aug. 16. 'Samaje went in and got checked for (a) twisted ankle, but looks like it's OK. Everything else was negative. Twisted ankle for Samaje,' head coach Jay Gruden said, via the team's post-game transcript.

Footballguys view: Perine is still expected to miss at least a week according to Mike Garafolo from NFL Network, so he won't have a chance to overtake Rob Kelley in the backfield. Look for Kelley to lead the team in carries Week 1 at Arizona.

Washington Redskins RB Byron Marshall (leg) left the preseason game early Thursday, Aug. 16, and is being evaluated for a lower leg injury.

  Redskins | Samaje Perine suffers injury    Thu Aug 16, 08:38 PM

Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) left the preseason game early Thursday, Aug. 16, and is being evaluated for an ankle sprain.

Footballguys view: Perine was behind Rob Kelley last year and lost a chance to make a case for himself when he left the game. It looks like Kelley will be the starter for Week 1 if Perine can't get back on the field next week.

  Redskins | Derrius Guice set for Friday surgery    Wed Aug 15, 05:50 PM

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) will have surgery Friday, Aug. 17 to repair his torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to a source. Renowned Dr. James Andrews will perform the procedure.

Footballguys view: Guice is going to miss his rookie year. Fantasy GMs will look to see if Samaje Perine or Rob Kelley can emerge as the lead back. Chris Thompson, the team's change-of-pace back, could see a larger role due to Guice's injury.

  Redskins | Orlando Scandrick let go    Tue Aug 14, 09:06 AM

Washington Redskins CB Orlando Scandrick was waived Tuesday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: Quinton Dunbar will start opposite Josh Norman after the team has been pleased with his development and Fabian Moreau in the slot. Washington opens with Arizona, so the test for the new corners won't be too stiff.

  Redskins | Robert Davis done for the year    Sat Aug 11, 08:18 PM

Updating a previous report, Redskins WR Robert Davis (knee) suffered a broken leg and a torn lateral collateral ligament. He will undergo surgery and is out for the season.

Footballguys view: Brian Quick has a better chance of making the team now, but UDFAs Cam Sims and Simmie Cobbs could also push as the last receiver and backup "big receiver" to Josh Doctson. Davis has great physical tools and was developing in year two after being a sixth-round pick and spending time on the practice squad.

  Redskins | Washington may not sign running back    Sat Aug 11, 06:36 PM

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is out for the season, but head coach Jay Gruden said he is satisfied with the depth behind Guice.

Footballguys view: Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine should compete for more carries with Guice done for the year. Chris Thompson is the team's pass-catching back and he goes from being flex worthy to potentially having RB2 value for fantasy GMs in PPR leagues.

  Redskins | Robert Davis may have torn ACL    Sat Aug 11, 05:32 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR Robert Davis (knee) is feared to have suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during practice Saturday, Aug. 11, according to a source. Davis is scheduled to undergo an MRI Saturday night.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson works in practice    Sat Aug 11, 03:44 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (ankle) was able to participate in most of practice Saturday, Aug. 11, and he was reportedly moving well with tape on his right foot and ankle area.

Footballguys view: Doctson didn't flash in his second season last year. Washington went out and nabbed Paul Richardson in free agency to help the position. This season, Doctson needs to show better route-running and hands if he ever wants to play up to the potential that made him a first-round pick out of TCU in 2016.

  Redskins | Derrius Guice goes on IR    Sat Aug 11, 02:44 PM

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: Terrible news for the rookie as he'll miss all of the 2018 season recovering from the knee injury suffered in Washington's preseason opener. Guice was in line to be a big player for the offense and now there's a huge role waiting for someone to step into. Chris Thompson has plenty of fantasy value due to his pass-catching role, but he goes from flex appeal in PPR leagues to perhaps RB2 levels with a larger role. Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine will compete for an early-down role in 2018.

  Redskins | Derrius Guice reportedly tore ACL    Fri Aug 10, 02:40 PM

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) reportedly tore his ACL and will miss the rest of the season, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport via a source.

Footballguys view: Terrible news for Washington and the top prospect. Rob Kelley was ahead of Samaje Perine last year and he has reportedly slimmed down, so he is probably the favorite to start, but this should be a committee approach and Washington could always bring in a veteran like Demarco Murray or even wait until final cuts to add someone.

  Redskins | Derrius Guice update    Fri Aug 10, 11:21 AM

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) received an initial diagnosis of a sprained medial collateral ligament, according to a source. He'll have an MRI to confirm.

Footballguys view: Guice will probably miss 2-4 weeks at the most if this diagnosis is correct. He probably won't play in the preseason, but could be ready for Week 1. Washington could be more inclined to keep Samaje Perine, who was reportedly on the roster bubble.

Washington Redskins DE Tavaris Barnes (undisclosed) reverted to the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Aug. 8.


  Redskins | Samaje Perine odd-man out in D.C.?    Wed Aug 8, 03:12 PM

Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine might be the odd-man out on a depth chart with RBs Derrius Guice, Chris Thompson and Rob Kelley. Byron Marshall and Kapri Bibbs are also in the mix for jobs.

Footballguys view: Perine was their lead back for most of his rookie season in 2017 and never really impressed. He's got a somewhat limited skill set as he's primarily a banger between the tackles who lacks homerun speed or receiving ability. Guice should be the lead back for Washington with Thompson serving as the change-of-pace back.

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (undisclosed) will be held out of Week 1 of the preseason as he recovers from a minor injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Crowder wasn't healthy until the second half of the season last year, when he delivered on the optimism around him heading into his third year. We want to see him back at full speed for the third preseason game to not fear a similar path this year.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson hurt, still practicing     Tue Aug 7, 02:19 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (heel, shoulder) participated in team drills Tuesday, Aug. 7, despite dealing with heel and shoulder ailments.

Footballguys view: The shoulder issue was the original reported injury, but the heel injury bears watching too. We're beginning to wonder if Doctson will ever truly be 100%.

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) will not play in the preseason opener against the New England Patriots Thursday, Aug. 9, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: So far there have been no reasons to think Thompson won't be ready for Week 1, but he did say he won't be fully recovered until November. This is precautionary.

  Redskins | Minor heel issue for Josh Doctson    Sat Aug 4, 11:09 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (shoulder, heel) has a minor heel issue, but head coach Jay Gruden disputed a report that Doctson's heel needed to be drained. 'So I don't know where that came from,' Gruden said 'That is not true.'

Footballguys view: Perhaps it is a minor issue in the big scheme of things, but Doctson's inability to stay off of the injury report is making it difficult to draft him at ADP and expect a good result. Hopefully this is the last we will hear of his heel this year.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (shoulder) may be able to participate in some drills during practice Saturday, Aug. 4, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: That's a great sign after we also heard that Doctson had to have his heel drained this week. These injuries still serve a warning about Doctson's spotty injury history and inability to fulfill potential in his first two seasons.

  Redskins | Maurice Harris impressing coach    Thu Aug 2, 10:51 PM

Washington Redskins WR Maurice Harris is a 'very quarterback-friendly,' receiver, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'He's got strong hands and he's probably our best route-runner on our team,' Gruden said.

Footballguys view: Harris made one of the catches of the year in 2017, and he projects well as a backup to Paul Richardson in the deep passing game that Alex Smith made productive in Kansas City last year. If Richardson misses time, we could be talking about Harris as a waiver wire pickup this year.

  Redskins | Rob Kelley slimmed down    Thu Aug 2, 10:47 PM

Washington Redskins RB Rob Kelley said he is playing faster now that his weight is down to 221 pounds this season.

Footballguys view: Kelley is battling Samaje Perine to be the #2 back behind Derrius Guice in the early down offense. If he is faster, he'll likely win the competition, and maybe even make Perine a surprise cut.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (arm) left practice Wednesday, Aug. 1, with a left arm injury after hitting the ground hard on a catch attempt in the end zone.

Footballguys view: Doctson has had a string of injuries that have kept him from having the impact in his first two years that Washington was looking for when they drafted him in the first round in 2016. Hopefully, this is just a scare. Brian Quick might be poised to benefit the most if Doctson misses time.
