Rich Campbell covers the Washington Redskins for The Washington Times.
Rich Campbell, The Washington Times' Redskins beat writer since May 2011, is leaving the paper and ESPN980 to cover the Bears for the Chicago Tribune.
The drama continues between the Washington Redskins and quarterback Robert Griffin III. One day after being cleared to play by his surgeon, Dr. James Andrews, but not yet named the opening night starter by his coach, Mike Shanahan, ESPN reported that Andrews’ “concerns” are about how the team plans to use its star player this season.
The Washington Redskins have announced that quarterback Robert Griffin III has been cleared to start the team’s season-opener on Sept. 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but coach Mike Shanahan stopped short of saying that he would do so.
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will start the team's season-opener on Sept. 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to an ESPN report.
Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III pronounced his surgically repaired right knee "100 percent" in an interview with radio station ESPN 980 on Tuesday.
The Redskins completed their first round of cuts on Tuesday by releasing four players and adding another to the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list. That left the roster at 75 players by the 4 p.m. NFL deadline.
The Redskins know who won't be playing on Thursday night in their preseason finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers: pretty much any expected starter.
Garcon paired with Russell Athletic to provide new uniforms for football teams at Thomas Jefferson High in Alexandria, Theodore Roosevelt High in the District and Springbrook High in Silver Spring. On Tuesday, he handed out uniforms, visited with kids and posed for pictures.
The Redskins' defense took advantage of Buffalo's need to play undrafted rookie quarterback Jeff Tuel for more than three quarters. Quarterback Rex Grossman threw with typical bravado, as the offense showcased its depth and running back and in the passing game.
Touchdowns by Garcon, White and Williams complement a dominant defensive effort in easy win over the Bills.
Nose tackle Barry Cofield (broken right hand) could have played this week if it were the regular season, coach Mike Shanahan said. Strong safety Brandon Meriweather (right knee) might play Saturday against Buffalo.
Griffin wants to make the decision to clear him for game action an easy one. That involves consistently throwing with sound lower-body mechanics. Coaches are focusing on his leg drive and weight transfer, especially because his plant leg was the one operated on.
The Redskins' backup quarterback on Wednesday morning walked without the aid of crutches or a walking boot on his sprained right foot. He considers himself day-to-day.
Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins did not suffer a serious right foot injury Monday, the results of an MRI exam showed Tuesday. Cousins is expected to be healthy by the regular season opener on Sept. 9, according to a source with knowledge of the situation who requested anonymity because the team did not disclose the results of Tuesday's MRI exam.
Dr. James Andrews’ visit to FedEx Field was well-timed, given recent intensified speculation about QB Robert Griffin III’s status in his comeback from right knee ligament surgery. It wasn't a good night for two running backs on the roster bubble.
