Rookie cornerback Bashaud Breeland’s interception leads to Kai Forbath’s go-ahead field goal, and Washington snaps a six-game losing streak by defeating Philadelphia.
Williams, the Redskins’ starting left tackle, was considered questionable to play in the game, while Robinson, the starting mike linebacker, was listed as doubtful and will miss his third consecutive game.
Five questions facing the Redskins as they host the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday:
L.J. Peak made two free throws with 7.5 seconds left to help Georgetown thwart Charlotte’s second-half rally and claim an 81-78 win Saturday.
Wall added 10 assists, and Nene scored his points off the bench as the Wizards broke a tie score in the final two minutes to top Miami, 105-103.
Olympic gold medal swimmer Michael Phelps pleaded guilty to drunken driving on Friday, almost three months after he was arrested after leaving a Baltimore casino.
Williams, the Redskins’ starting left tackle, was unable to practice on Wednesday but returned to practice, albeit in a limited fashion, on Thursday. Meriweather, the starting strong safety, was placed on injured reserve.
The previously-reported deal was announced Friday, shipping outfielder Steven Souza to Tampa Bay while bringing right-hander Joe Ross and a player to be named to Washington.
Burakovsky was a healthy scratch for the fifth time in six games on Thursday, when the Capitals defeated Columbus 5-4 in overtime. His playing time has dwindled significantly since the start of the season.
Thompson, the second-year running back, is among several unproven players who have gotten an opportunity to play for the Redskins in the final month of the season, but those chances have almost exclusively come as the result of an injury to someone else.
The oldest active player in the league drags smaller and mid-sized point guards down into the post. He goes up, right and left in stops and fits. It’s an archaic model of offense. Coach Randy Wittman joked the last time someone used a similar style was in the 1930s.
FIFA will not reopen the vote for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups and will publish at least some of the confidential report into the bidding process, President Sepp Blatter said Friday.
