Jordan Reed will again land on the inactive list for the Washington Redskins as they face off against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday.
Is Mike Shanahan's decision to stick with the same lineup that got the Redskins to 3-9 in the long-term good of the organization?
Point-Counterpoint: With their playoff hopes barely on life support, should the Redskins make some lineup changes to see what they have in some younger players? Tandler and Tarik debate the question.
Davis sat amidst rumors that he wants to be dealt before the NFL trade deadline on Tuesday. Davis denied that in a radio interview last Tuesday with radio station 106.7 The Fan. But he also said that a change of scenery might be necessary if he isn't in the team's plans.
Trent Williams shoved Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman in the face in the aftermath of the Washington Redskins' season-ending playoff loss Sunday and expressed regret minutes later.
There's likely to be an addition to the Washington Redskins' Year of the Rookie on Sunday. Third-round rookie left guard Josh LeRibeus is positioned to make his first career start in Washington's wild card round game against the Seattle Seahawks because first-stringer Kory Lichtensteiger missed practice all week with a sprained left ankle.
Kory Lichtensteiger played off and on through a sprained left ankle in the Washington Redskins' NFC East-clinching victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night, and the left guard hopes to be able to go when the playoffs begin in a week.
Will Montgomery practiced Wednesday through a sprained right knee. But that didn't mean the Washington Redskins' starting center's knee injury was minor.
Entering this season, the Redskins' offensive line wasn't known for performing in beautiful harmony with precise choreography like "The Five Heartbeats."
Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon was inactive for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams because of a right foot injury.
Josh LeRibeus likes to laugh. Every few seconds the convulsions shake his emerging beard, thriving since his girlfriend isn't in town, that draws comparisons to John Belushi.
Here are some observations from Saturday’s practice on Fan Appreciation Day at Redskins Park:
Things got pretty rough for the Washington Redskins' offensive line last season. If one more guy had gotten hurt or suspended, the team might have held a seance and tried to contact the spirit of Turk Edwards.
Already dealing with an uncertain situation at right tackle with Jammal Brown, the Washington Redskins became thinner along the offensive line, at least in the short term, after left guard Kory Lichtensteiger had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Monday.
Trent Williams and Maurice Hurt were the last two Washington Redskins off the indoor practice field Saturday afternoon. While most of their teammates headed to lunch, and a few stragglers spoke to reporters, Williams tutored Hurt about squaring his shoulders to pass-rushing defenders and absorbing contact in the chest.
"A lot more work in the playbook, just getting everything down, not asking questions as much," he said. "As far as that has come, it has come a long way. Now getting in there just knowing what to do, snap-snap-snap, and you're good to go."
"I was going a million miles an hour, and it cost me a couple times, but I settled down after that," LeRibeus said.
