The Redskins have promoted RB Jawan Jamison, their seventh-round pick in this year's draft, to the 53-man roster.
Redskins running back Evan Royster will finish the season on injured reserve after suffering a high ankle sprain Sunday.
Faced with the ever-increasing reality that he may not be back as the Redskins' coach next season, Shanahan insisted Monday afternoon that he would indeed like to remain with the team. "You always want to come back," he said. "I love these guys."
Though the Redskins surpassed 100 rushing yards Sunday for the 11th consecutive game, 88 of those yards were gained by quarterback Robert Griffin III. Morris managed only 11 carries for 26 yards, and he gained 15 yards on two carries in the second half.
Who played how much for the Redskins against the Giants? Rich Tandler takes a look.
All signs pointed to Redskins tight end Jordan Reed playing on Sunday night against the New York Giants. But a pregame headache knocked Reed from the lineup, his second missed game in a row.
Royal and Redskins running back Royster grew up together in Fairfax County. They helped Westfield High to a Group AAA, Division 6 state championship in 2003 and both went on to college success at Virginia Tech and Penn State, respectively. But this week will be just Royal's third game in his hometown.
Five questions Redskins beat writer Brian McNally has heading into Washington's Thursday night preseason game at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan was blunt with rookie running back Chris Thompson. "No matter how good you are, if you fumble you can't play," Shanahan said after Thompson's second turnover in two preseason games on Saturday afternoon against the Buffalo Bills.
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.
An already depleted Washington Redskins defense could be without two cornerstone starters Thursday, in addition to the season-ending injury to safety Brandon Meriweather.
The Washington Redskins led the Minnesota Vikings 31-26 with 2:56 to play in the fourth quarter Sunday at FedEx Field. Facing third and 6 from the Washington 24, Robert Griffin III awaited the shotgun snap from center Will Montgomery. What followed would become the signature play in the quarterback's rookie season, and is presented here in an oral history:
Back in the state in which he grew up and played college football, Alfred Morris found a comfort zone quickly.
On an otherwise innocuous third down, Robert Griffin III slipped the football into running back Evan Royster's arms and backed away. The rookie quarterback thrust his arms in the air as he stood alone on the chewed-up turf at Raymond James Stadium in an exaggerated gesture to remind any defenders in the neighborhood he didn't have the football.
Ryan Grant had already worked out for the Bears and was in Chicago on the way to take a physical when he had to make a choice. Along with that possibility, the Washington Redskins put in an offer.
"I think Eddie's one of the best slot receivers in the country," Royster said. "I might be biased, but I think he is. I think he can be. I just think he needs to stay healthy because he's plagued by injuries over the first couple of years of his career."
"It definitely puts me at a disadvantage because I can't take all the reps that they're getting," Royster said. "I'm going to go out there and do everything that I can, but obviously two days out I'm not going to be able to do everything quite yet. It definitely puts me back because they're getting more reps, and the coaches are getting to see them play more than they're getting to see me."
