  Redskins | Offer for Trent Williams turned down    Thu Aug 22, 12:16 PM

Washington Redskins OT Trent Williams recently attracted the interest of the New England Patriots, who reportedly offered a 2020 first-round draft pick to Washington in exchange for the holdout Williams but were turned down, according to multiple reports.

Footballguys view: This has been denied but it could be put out to set the price for Williams for other teams. The Patriots (and many teams) could certainly use the services of Williams. He's clearly going to hold out well into the season until he gets traded in a replay of the Duane Brown situation in 2017.

Washington Redskins WR Trey Quinn (thumb) will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 22, while WR Paul Richardson (quadriceps) probably will also miss the game.

Footballguys view: Terry McLaurin is the one Washington receiver with no injuries and momentum going into the third preseason game, which is a bad sign for their offense.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) is scheduled to play Thursday, Aug. 22, in a preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons.

  Redskins | Case Keenum heading toward Week 1 start    Sun Aug 18, 03:32 PM

Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum is on track to the be the Week 1 starter under center, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter Sunday, Aug. 18. Head coach Jay Gruden said Colt McCoy (leg) may not be ready to return from a broken leg until 'two or three weeks into the season.'

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Keenum should open the season as the starter but Washington should turn things over to 2019 first-round pick Dwayne Haskins at some point. While Keenum is a 'bridge' quarterback, Haskins is the franchise quarterback of the future. He'll start soon enough.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy saw specialist about injury    Sun Aug 18, 01:33 PM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (leg) said Sunday, Aug. 18, that he has visited a foot specialist to have his injured right leg examined as he's had trouble getting a full push off the leg when passing.

Footballguys view: McCoy is the No. 3 quarterback for Washington and has no shot of moving up the depth chart before the start of the regular season. McCoy said there has been no setback, but there's still no timetable when he'll be 100 percent.

Footballguys view: He was battling with Shaun Dion Hamilton and fifth-round pick Cole Holcomb for playing time at inside linebacker. This could help clarify this situation.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy to miss preseason game    Wed Aug 14, 05:53 PM

  Redskins | Case Keenum on path to starting job    Tue Aug 13, 07:58 PM

Washington Redskins QB Case Keenum is on a path to being named the Week 1 starter under center, according to Rick Snider of The Washington Post, Tuesday, Aug. 13. Colt McCoy (undisclosed) sat out Tuesday's practice due to what head coach Jay Gruden called soreness. Rookie Dwayne Haskins has still looked 'like the rookie he is,' according to Snider.

Footballguys view: Keenum can be the starter at the beginning of the regular season, but we don't think he lasts in that spot for very long. Haskins is the QB of the future and head coach Jay Gruden needs to win...or at least show that he can win/develop with Haskins...if he wants to keep his job.

  Redskins | Derrius Guice still waiting for approval    Tue Aug 13, 02:09 PM

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice (knee) has been participating in practices this summer but has yet to receive clearance to play in a game, and he told ESPN's John Keim on Tuesday, Aug. 13, that he's not sure when he'll play in the preseason.

Footballguys view: Guice has a ton of talent as a runner but a knee injury cost him all of the 2018 season. He missed his rookie season last year and we're excited to see him in his first regular season game action. Guice is back now, but it did take more time than originally thought to recover from his knee injury and there were a few setbacks along the way.

  Redskins | Terry McLaurin poised for key role early    Mon Aug 12, 03:13 PM

Washington Redskins WR Terry McLaurin is a 'lock' for a role on offense early this season, according to MMQB's Albert Breer, who added that the coaching staff loves McLaurin's speed, toughness and versatility.

Footballguys view: There's a lot to like about McLaurin's game and his situation. First, his route running is quite nuanced for a young player. Second, McLaurin does a good job of winning contested catches and shows strength at the end of the route. Finally, the third-round pick from Ohio State is set up with first-round pick from Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins. The two were a nice combination for the Buckeyes and should continue that chemistry in the pros.

Washington Redskins WR Trey Quinn (thumb) suffered a thumb injury during pregame warmups Thursday, Aug. 8, and may not be able to play in the preseason game Thursday Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: Quinn is set up for a big role in the Washington passing game. This shouldn't put his Week 1 in doubt, but we'll be tracking it and hoping to see him on the field for the third preseason game.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins completed eight of his 14 pass attempts for 117 yards and two interceptions and rushed twice for 17 yards in a 30-10 preseason loss to the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Aug. 8.

Footballguys view: Haskins looked not ready to start Week 1 by some accounts, but he did look good on rollouts, a staple of this offense. He will definitely start by the end of the year unless Washington is somehow a playoff contender.

  Redskins | Trent Williams digging in his heels    Thu Aug 8, 02:45 PM

Washington Redskins OT Trent Williams is willing to miss regular-season games and has made up his mind that he has no interest in ever playing another snap for the Redskins, according to a source who has reportedly spoken directly to him. Williams' stance is the result of his lack of faith in the team's front office and medical staff, according to multiple sources.

  Redskins | Derrius Guice may skip preseason game    Tue Aug 6, 09:51 PM

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice may not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: We're excited to see Guice on the field whenever he's ready for the work. Guice missed all of his rookie season in 2018 due to a knee injury and has had quite a few setbacks over the last year as he recovers. It doesn't seem like Guice has been limited during training camp, but the team wants to be careful with him in the exhibition season.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy atop 1st depth chart    Sun Aug 4, 06:16 PM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy is listed as the starter under center on the team's first depth chart. Case Keenum is slotted in as the backup and rookie Dwayne Haskins is the third-strong quarterback.

Footballguys view: This should come to down preseason performances, but unless Haskins is overwhelmed, the best plan is actually let him learn on the job and allow his line and receivers to get as much experience as possible with him. Splitting camp and preseason reps will only slow his development.

  Redskins | Trent Williams could sit out season    Sat Aug 3, 10:29 AM

Washington Redskins OT Trent Williams (head), who is currently on the Reserve/Did Not Report list, has reportedly told friends that he would be willing to sit out the 2019 season.

Footballguys view: Stay tuned here. Even if he had reported to training camp on time, he would not be ready to play football right away because he is still recovering from cosmetic surgeries on his head, which limited his ability to work out during the offseason.

Footballguys view: Penn could be the team's starting left tackle Week 1, and maybe for the whole season. There are no signs that Trent Williams is going to show and most reports paint a bleak picture of his chances to return to the team this year.

Washington Redskins RB Bryce Love (knee) likely will not be on the active roster at the start of the regular season, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

  Redskins | Trent Williams on the block    Wed Jul 31, 01:03 PM

Washington Redskins OT Trent Williams is involved in trade discussions, and the feeling around the league is the New England Patriots could get involved due to depth concerns.

Footballguys view: This has all the makings of a new Duane Brown situation. Brown was a holdout for the Texans (into the season) before he forced their hand and was traded away to the Seahawks. Washington is getting right to business here, and after signing veteran OT Donald Penn they should have no problem generating interest for Williams. He's under contract over the next two years with base salaries of $10.8 and $12.5 million respectively.
