  Redskins | Adrian Peterson update    Tue Oct 22, 11:31 AM

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) has a Grade 1 high ankle sprain and a Grade 2 low ankle sprain.

Footballguys view: It will be interesting to see if Peterson is ready for Week 8. Washington travels to play Minnesota on Thursday night. With this banged up ankle, perhaps Peterson will get a smaller role. He claims to be good to go for Thursday, but Wendell Smallwood might get more work.

  Redskins | Adrian Peterson does not practice    Mon Oct 21, 05:29 PM

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 21. The Redskins did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

Footballguys view: He apparently had an MRI on the ankle and is awaiting results. Even if he can go on Thursday, he's not a good play against Minnesota. The Washington backfield could be down their top three backs against the Vikings.

  Redskins | Adrian Peterson gets ankle checked out    Mon Oct 21, 02:47 PM

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) underwent an MRI on Monday, Oct. 21. The results have yet to be disclosed.

Footballguys view: It's a short week as Washington plays against Minnesota on Thursday night. Peterson is the centerpiece of the rushing attack and could post RB2 or flex numbers in Week 8 if he's ready to go.

Washington Redskins WR Terry McLaurin caught one pass for 11 yards against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7. He was targeted two times during the game.

Footballguys view: No wide receiver was going to put a good result in these conditions. He'll play Thursday night against Minnesota and be worth a WR3/Flex start.

  Redskins | Trent Williams won't be traded this year    Sat Oct 19, 06:43 PM

Washington Redskins OT Trent Williams won't be traded this season, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network Saturday, Oct. 19. Garafolo adds Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey made repeated attempts to acquire Williams but was told no. There are indications a deal could be made in the offseason.

Footballguys view: Washington is being stubborn...or nobody has reached their price tag. The Browns tried but it doesn't look like Williams will be on the move. We'll see if someone can change their mind before the trade deadline in a little over a week.

  Redskins | Craig Reynolds promoted    Sat Oct 19, 04:17 PM

Washington Redskins RB Craig Reynolds was signed off of the practice squad Saturday, Oct. 19. WR Cam Sims was released in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Washington needed more help in the backfield with Chris Thompson out. We'll see Adrian Peterson as the lead back with Wendell Smallwood and Reynolds getting some reserve work.

Washington Redskins WR Wendell Smallwood has the ability to handle RB Chris Thompson's (toe) duties on passing downs against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7, according to offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell.

Footballguys view: Smallwood gets the work that starter Adrian Peterson does not. We'll see if he can produce like a 'what the heck' flex on Sunday.

  Redskins | Adrian Peterson takes part in practice     Fri Oct 18, 04:17 PM

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Peterson will get a bulk of the carries for Washington on Sunday against the 49ers. We like him as a RB3/flex play based on quantity.

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) on Friday, Oct. 18, was ruled out of Week 7 with a toe injury.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson sidelined again    Thu Oct 17, 01:37 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) missed a second straight day of practice Thursday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: It doesn't look like Thompson will be ready for the matchup with the 49ers this week. He isn't known as a fast healer and turf toe is tricky issue for running backs, so don't count on seeing him back in the lineup soon.

  Redskins | HC seeing growth from Dwayne Haskins    Wed Oct 16, 11:58 PM

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins took all the first-team reps in practice Wednesday, Oct. 16 with QB Case Keenum (shoulder, foot) missing from practice. Interim head coach Bill Callahan said he is starting to see growth from the rookie.

Footballguys view: Haskins could start this week against the 49ers, but is that really the defense you would want him to face in his first NFL start? If Keenum can play it will probably be better for Haskins' college teammate Terry McLaurin because Haskins will be overwhelmed.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (quad) didn't practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) could return to practice next week, according to head coach Bill Callahan Wednesday, Oct. 16. RB Bryce Love (knee) will need more time, Callahan said.

Footballguys view: Guice is on Injured Reserve but eligible to return two weeks after he's activated. When the happens, the countdown to his return can begin. Until then, Washington continues with Adrian Peterson as their lead back.

  Redskins | Dwayne Haskins takes first team reps    Wed Oct 16, 03:24 PM

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins took all the first-team reps at practice Wednesday, Oct. 16, with QB Case Keenum (undisclosed) sidelined.

Footballguys view: We could see Haskins inserted as the starter in the near future. Washington needs to take a look at their 2019 first-round pick but they don't want to set him back (at least that's what they're trying to sell the fan base). Head coach Bill Callahan said he's starting to see growth from the rookie signal-caller.

Free-agent RB Josh Ferguson worked out for the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: Ferguson hasn't made much of an impact as a pro. Undrafted out of Illinois in 2016, Ferguson has bounced around to a few different teams since then. Washington is just updating their emergency list here with Chris Thompson (toe) banged up.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson dealing with turf toe    Tue Oct 15, 03:48 PM

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) was diagnosed with a mild case of turf toe and his availability for Week 7 is 'in some doubt,' according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: Turf toe is a painful injury that can have long-lasting effects if not given proper time to heal. We could see Thompson miss some games with this injury, no matter how 'minor' they say it is. Wendell Smallwood could get more time as a change-of-pace back if Thompson has to miss time.
