Less than two weeks after the NFL penalized the Redskins on the eve of free agency in March, Mara publicly supported the controversial disciplinary action that gave his team a competitive advantage over its NFC East rivals.

“I think they are lucky they didn’t lose draft picks,” and, “I thought the penalties imposed were proper,” Mara told reporters at the time.

Hall on crutches

Cornerback DeAngelo Hall walked with the help of crutches when he showed up Tuesday afternoon for his weekly radio appearance on 106.7 The Fan. Chad Dukes, the show’s co-host, tweeted a picture of Hall on crutches. Hall said he suffered an ankle injury, but he expects to play against Baltimore on Sunday.

Coach Mike Shanahan said the Redskins suffered no significant injuries in Monday night’s game, and he did not disclose Hall’s injury to reporters.

Inside linebacker London Fletcher (sprained left ankle) and left tackle Trent Williams (bruised left thigh) were sore after playing through their injuries, and it’s premature to determine their status for Sunday.

The Redskins‘ win over the Giants was the fourth-most-viewed cable television program this year, according to an ESPN announcement. The telecast’s 11.9 household coverage rating represented an average of 11.7 million households, according to Nielsen.
