Who played how much for the Redskins against the Giants? Rich Tandler takes a look.
Penalties aren't the biggest reason the Redskins lost Sunday night. But they certainly didn't help matters.
The NFL rulebook is thick enough to compete with a New York telephone book _ cellphone numbers included.
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.
The Redskins own the NFL's second-oldest 53-man roster, but made mistakes you'd expect from a group not stocked with veterans. Two forgettable games into the season, they aren't a disciplined football team.
In a career that has taken him from Centreville High to Virginia Tech to a trio of NFL teams, Redskins center Will Montgomery has had a lot of teammates and coaches. All of them, he said, provided him with a chance to learn something.
At 2:05 p.m., under partly cloudy skies, with a few scattered chants of "R-G-3!" from the crowd, Robert Griffin III took a snap from center Will Montgomery at the 50-yard line and handed the ball to running back Alfred Morris.
As Cousins quarterbacks the Redskins' starting offense through three of four preseason games beginning Thursday night on the road against the Tennessee Titans, he believes he is better equipped to seize an opportunity that's important for him and the franchise.
The most surprising thing about Robert Griffin III's damaged right knee — aside from the White House not chiming in on the free world's most-debated joint — is that anyone is surprised at all.
Robert Griffin III waved his arms, encouraging Washington Redskins fans to keep up the chant. It wasn't the chorus of "RG3" that filled FedEx Field for most of the regular season, a tribute to the rookie quarterback whose success changed the course of the franchise.
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.
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.
In a hallway deep beneath FedEx Field, eight men surrounded Robert Griffin III. Some wore earpieces. They rushed the quarterback past white walls and idling Cadillac Escalades and into a black sedan.
"I guess everybody wants those guys who are 6-5, 320 and run like a deer," Montgomery said. "I think I've always just been pretty good at football, and I continue to improve my craft each year."
"They're always looking to find the next-best thing, and Coach Bugel one time said you needed to do your job so good, so great that they didn't have a choice but to keep you," Montgomery said.
