Who played how much for the Redskins against the Giants? Rich Tandler takes a look.
Griffin has been followed by questions about his durability since he entered the NFL before last season, and those voices were only amplified after Griffin tore two ligaments in his right knee in a playoff game in January. Now that he appears to have fully regained his mobility, rushing for an average of six yards per attempt over the last five games, the concern has returned.
Robert Griffin III has passed a major test toward his goal of playing in Week 1, getting the go-ahead from the team doctors days before the Washington Redskins open training camp.
Will Montgomery practiced Wednesday through a sprained right knee. But that didn't mean the Washington Redskins' starting center's knee injury was minor.
It was the first week of Washington Redskins training camp when Alfred Morris entertained the question. Darrel Young was hurt, and the unassuming sixth-round pick out of Florida Atlantic was asked if he had been asked by the coaching staff to fill in at fullback.
Before Kory Lichtensteiger answered the question Monday afternoon, he wanted to find some wood on which to knock. Two victories from a division title is no time for a jinx.
When Trent Williams ran into Kory Lichtensteiger on the third play of the Washington Redskins' Thanksgiving Day victory over the Dallas Cowboys, the pain was overwhelming. The left tackle suffered deep left thigh bruise but refused to come out of the game.
MetLife Stadium could have been the scene for Robert Griffin III's greatest NFL triumph (so far). The Washington Redskins had the New York Giants beaten. That is, until Eli Manning found Victor Cruz for a 77-yard touchdown.
Understanding the reality of where his Washington Redskins are after eight weeks, coach Mike Shanahan on Monday busted out the phrase that players agreed best describes the upcoming game against the Carolina Panthers: "I think everybody knows that it's a must-win game," he said.
Lorenzo Alexander's life was simpler four years ago. He did not have a family of five. He did not own a pilates studio in Ashburn, and he did not have a strong foothold professionally as a co-captain of the Washington Redskins.
Many around the NFL have criticized Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano for breaking commonly accepted football etiquette and having his team crash the opposition's victory formation. That includes several Washington Redskins players, who more than anything else said they don't get why Schiano and the Bucs would endanger opponents in such a way.
Trent Williams tried. After leaving Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on the Washington Redskins' second offensive play from scrimmage with a right knee injury, the left tackle attempted to come back.
The Washington Redskins gained 459 yards against the New Orleans Saints and left the Superdome with an impressive upset victory. But the offensive linemen that plowed the way for those yards offered a lukewarm assessment of their play.
Robert Griffin III: three sacks, no touchdowns.
Left tackle Trent Williams made progress Tuesday in working back from a bone bruise in his left foot. As the Washington Redskins prepared for Saturday's preseason game against the Chicago Bears, he took part in about half of team drills before sitting out the remainder.
"You know, I think it's part of the game, and also, I think it's part of his game," said right guard Chris Chester, who played a role in allowing two of those second-half sacks. "He's a guy that likes to get back there and try to make some plays, and it's usually a good thing for us, but as a result, he's going to get hit. It's the nature of the game."
"It's really tough. And I mean this sincerely: I get both sides of the argument," guard Chris Chester said. "I see how it can offend some people, but I feel like the context that this organization has, there's no negative connotation. You wouldn't name your team something you didn't have respect for. At least I wouldn't. I mean, I understand, too, that it offends some people, so I sympathize with both sides."
