It’s unfortunate that the Redskins don’t play Jacksonville again this year.

Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew remains upset with Redskins CB Fred Smoot about a hit in last week’s game.


Jones-Drew bruised his right shin on the third down play.

“I just think some things in football you don’t need,” he said, according to the Associated Press. “If you want to cut out blocking or certain hits when people aren’t looking, going low when a guy’s back’s to you … that isn’t the way to tackle a guy. I just think that personally. Obviously they’re (the league) only trying to protect certain people. I was upset at the time. I was in the moment, but it happens.”

Jones-Drew didn’t practice on Monday. — Ryan O’Halloran
