Latest Bryan Kehl Items
From special teams woes to containing Peyton Manning, the Redskins have plenty to address as they head into Sunday's game at Denver.
Special teams and the secondary are in question once again for Washington as the Bears roll into FedEx Field to take on the Redskins in Week 7.
Two of the Redskins' top special teams players are done for the season. Reserve linebacker Bryan Kehl sustained a torn ACL in his left knee in the second quarter, and longtime long snapper Nick Sundberg tore the meniscus in his right knee.
Darrel Young stood in a corner of the locker room underneath AT&T Stadium that reeked of sweat, stale air and defeat. Every few seconds, he slapped the side of his navy suit for emphasis because the words, really, didn't seem adequate to describe the Redskins not-so-special teams.
On Sunday night in Dallas, when a win would have pushed the Washington Redskins right back into the thick of the NFC East title chase, Fletcher's crew did a credible job against one of the NFL's better offenses. And yet, in the end, that didn't matter at all in a 31-16 loss that left the Redskins grasping for answers.

The crowd of 4,000 in the morning and 6,100 in the afternoon cheered his every move and occasionally chanted his name. They were most excited by a play during afternoon team drills that Griffin wasn't even supposed to be part of.
Redskins linebacker Bryan Kehl makes his living covering kickoffs in the NFL. That's why his reaction to the possibility of the NFL eliminating kickoffs from the game was a bit surprising on Friday.
Jason Babin didn't wind up with the Washington Redskins, awarded to the Jacksonville Jaguars off waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday, but coach Mike Shanahan liked him enough to try to nab him.
