DE Kedric Golston (groin) is listed as doubtful, OG Kory Lichtensteiger (groin) and PK Kai Forbath (groin) are listed as questionable and FS Ryan Clark (foot), RB Roy Helu (quadriceps), OG Shawn Lauvao (knee), LB Brian Orakpo (ankle) and Darrel Young (neck) are listed as probable.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson to test shoulder more    Fri Sep 19, 02:15 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder), who was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 19, didn't look 100 percent fluid in individual drills, but he was able to catch the ball. He will work out with trainers Saturday, Sept. 20, and Sunday, Sept. 21, before the team makes a decision on whether he can play in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The team remains optimistic about his chances of playing. WR Ryan Grant will receive more playing time if Jackson can't play.

Footballguys view: Jackson doesn't offer enough upside with Kirk Cousins at QB to merit the shaky play if you have solid options, even though he'll have something extra for his return to Philadelphia.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins a pocket passer    Fri Sep 19, 12:43 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is more of a pocket passer than QB Robert Griffin III, and Cousins sees the field better. Cousins kept the team out of danger in Week 2 by quickly throwing the ball at a receiver's feet with a rusher in his face instead of trying to force the ball downfield like Griffin has frequently done. Cousins may not be as dangerous as Griffin in zone-read plays, but Cousins has shown he can make good, quick decisions in the pocket after going through his progressions quickly.

Footballguys view: The question of whether Cousins can play well enough to give Jay Gruden pause before re-installing Griffin as the starter will be one of the most compelling of the first half of the season. The first big chapter comes this week at Philadelphia.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson questionable    Fri Sep 19, 12:42 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson made steps in a 'positive direction,' however. Jackson went through individual drills in practice Friday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: Jackson will surely push to play against his old team, but Kirk Cousins doesn't have the downfield arm of Robert Griffin III, so he might not be more than a hopeful flex play against a weak Eagles defense because of the risk of re-injury and the lack of big play upside.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed ruled out    Fri Sep 19, 12:30 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out of Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: Reed might not be back next week, and every week he misses allows Niles Paul to entrench himself in the Washington offense. Paul is a TE1 this week, and it is possible that he forces a timeshare that leaves neither as a TE1 right now. If you were counting on Reed to be your TE1 this year, you need to make other plans.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson not practicing    Thu Sep 18, 01:15 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is on the stationary bike as the rest of the team stretches for practice Thursday, Sept. 18. The plan is for Jackson to test his shoulder in practice Friday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: We'll watch tomorrow carefully and hope for the best. With the new quarterback, a tough matchup and the injury concern, we have Jackson as a high-end WR4 with upside. Have someone at the ready though in case he is a sudden inactive on Sunday.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin could return in eight weeks    Wed Sep 17, 05:11 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could return around eight weeks after head coach Jon Gruden said Griffin will be in a cast for the next 10 days. After that, he'll likely spend four to six weeks rehabbing his dislocated left ankle. QB Kirk Cousins will continue to start in place of Griffin in the meantime.

Footballguys view: Awesome...his season isn't over, but does Griffin come back as the starter? Simply put, Cousins is a better fit for the Jay Gruden system and if he performs well he could hang onto the starting job even when Griffin is healthy.

  Redskins | McCoy: DeSean Jackson will play    Wed Sep 17, 01:28 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will play in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles, his former team, according to Eagles RB LeSean McCoy. "He's playing," McCoy said. "He said he's definitely playing. That's the first thing he texted, he said 'I'm playing.'"

Footballguys view: Jackson's playing status is unknown because of this shoulder injury. Playing against his old team, Jackson would love nothing more than to single-handedly beat Philadelphia. We'll see if he can play through the pain if he's cleared to go this week.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins better suited for offense?    Mon Sep 15, 05:09 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has the skill set suited for what head coach Jay Gruden wants to do with the offense, according to a person with knowledge of Gruden's thinking. Gruden thinks Cousins can succeed in the offense better than QB Robert Griffin III (ankle), but Gruden understood it would have been impossible to make a quarterback change without Griffin being injured. Gruden was having a hard time getting Griffin to grasp the drop-back passing system the last few months.

Footballguys view: Cousins is a lot like Gruden's former quarterback, Bengals starter Andy Dalton. Both are accurate with weaker arms, but they both have the willingness to challenge the edges of the defense. Griffin is going to be out for some time, so Cousins could essentially cement himself as the starter if he plays well.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson says he'll play    Mon Sep 15, 04:15 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder), who is day-to-day with a shoulder sprain, said he plans to play in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source that has talked with Jackson. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson's playing status will be determined based on pain throughout the week.

Footballguys view: Jackson's a gamer, but the team won't rush him back until he's ready. The Washington passing offense will have a different look with Kirk Cousins under center. Fantasy owners should have another plan ready in case Jackson is not ready to play against his former team in Week 3.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin not going to IR    Mon Sep 15, 03:11 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will not be placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: This means Griffin could return later in the season. We're looking at at least a six-to-eight week absence for Griffin. By the time he returns, Kirk Cousins could be entrenched as the starter.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is listed as day-to-day after being diagnosed with an AC joint sprain in Week 2. Jackson left the game in the first quarter against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Jackson plays all out, and because of that he'll often get banged up. Monitor Washington's practice reports to see when Jackson can get back onto the field. If he misses any time, then it will increase the opportunity for Andre Roberts.

  Redskins | No fractures for Robert Griffin    Mon Sep 15, 12:53 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) isn't dealing with a fractured ankle, according to an MRI exam, and he doesn't think surgery is necessary. The best-case scenario for Griffin to recover from the injury is six to eight weeks, according to several surgeons.

Footballguys view: Well, this is good news but it still indicates that Griffin will be out for about half the season. By the time he returns, Kirk Cousins could have the starting job locked up. Fantasy owners who took a chance on Griffin have to go in a different direction.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson has sprain    Sun Sep 14, 07:37 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) suffered a sprained AC joint in the first quarter of the Week 2 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. 'I feel a little better from when it first happened,' Jackson said Sunday, Sept. 14. 'The player actually just fell right on my shoulder.' Jackson said he considers himself day to day, and it is too early to know if he'll be ready for the Week 3 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: This is better news than a broken collarbone, and at least Kirk Cousins looks as good as he should have against a weak Jaguars pass defense. Next week's matchup against his old Eagles team is one that Jackson will not want to miss, but he might not have a say in that decision.

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) suffered a dislocated ankle during the team's Week 2 game, according to a source. He will undergo tests to confirm the injury.

Footballguys view: Griffin is almost certainly lost for at least the next 3-4 games. Kirk Cousins has played well and zeroed in on Niles Paul, who will be a hot waiver wire pickup in Week 3. Next week brings the Eagles defense, which could help Cousins build some momentum.

Footballguys view: It looks like we're going to see Niles Paul as the tight end for Washington this week. Paul is a converted wide receiver who creates mismatches on the field. Paul led the team with 86 receiving yards on four catches in Week 1 against the Houston Texans, but he also fumbled. He only had four catches for 51 yards last season.
