The latest news and analysis of the Washington Redskins season.
The last count we got on surgeries for Redskins quarterback Alex Smith was six -- an alarming amount of operations on the broken leg he suffered on Nov. 18, 2018, against the Houston Texans. But what if I told you that wasn't even close to the count?
In a season that couldn't be much worse -- beating Miami on Sunday was like putting a Band-Aid on a spouting jugular -- thank goodness for Terry McLaurin. Washington's rookie receiver is the gift that keeps giving.
The Philadelphia Eagles released former Washington Redskins linebacker Zach Brown on Thursday. Brown criticized Kirk Cousins ahead of the Eagles' matchup with the Minnesota Vikings.
Washington rushed for 145 yards on 33 carries -- breaking off gains of 18 and 25 yards. The Redskins finally dominated on the ground, letting them control the pace for most of the afternoon.

McLaurin's precise route running made a huge difference in the Redskins' 17-16 win Sunday over the Miami Dolphins as the 24-year-old hauled in both of Washington's touchdowns. It was another instance this season of McLaurin emerging as the Redskins' top receiver.
It didn't matter to the Redskins that they barely hung on in a 17-16 victory over the Miami Dolphins. Yes, Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Dolphins almost stole the game, scoring a touchdown with six seconds left -- only to fail to convert a two-point attempt. And yes, they were facing the Dolphins, a team most consider to be tanking for the No.1 pick.
The Redskins edged out a 17-16 victory Sunday over the Miami Dolphins behind a strong running game and a stout defense -- two traits they relied on heavily in 2018.
Entering Sunday, the Redskins' matchup against the Miami Dolphins earned many nicknames: The Ineptitude Bowl, the Toilet Bowl, The Tua Bowl all among them. So far, the game has lived up to its billing.

The Washington Redskins placed Jordan Reed on injured reserve Saturday.
Adrian Peterson did a double take as soon as he was asked the question. The Redskins running back slightly pulled back, with his eyebrows scrunched together, before nodding in the affirmative that yes, he was excited about Bill Callahan's pledged commitment to the run.
Over the past few days, the rest of the Redskins' roster has started to learn how precise and demanding Callahan can be in lead up to Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.
Bill Callahan, in his initial comments Monday as Washington Redskins interim coach, said rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins "will be in the lineup at some point in time, whether it's this year or next year."
Interim coach Bill Callahan said Wednesday the team was still deciding who will start Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. But the coach's remarks came hours after a report indicated Case Keenum is expected to be named starter, as long as his foot injury doesn't prevent him from doing so.
In his first practice as the Redskins' interim coach, Callahan sent a clear signal that the ousted Jay Gruden is no longer in charge. The central goal? The 63-year-old said he wants the Redskins to get back to the fundamentals.
Former New York Jets and Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan subtly threw his hat in the ring for the Washington Redskins' vacant head coaching position.

The Washington Redskins are expected to start quarterback Case Keenum in Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, according to a new report.
When Bill Callahan was asked about the possibility of starting Dwayne Haskins, the Redskins interim coach said the rookie still had a 'ways to go'-- a phrase coach Jay Gruden uttered more than once over the last few months before his firing Monday.
In 2019, it may be time for the media to require this warning with all references to the Washington Redskins: "Warning -- the Washington Redskins are not a real NFL franchise. It doesn't matter who plays quarterback. It doesn't matter who coaches. Nothing matters as long as Dan Snyder owns the team."
Pick a coach. Bill Belichick. Nick Saban. Mike Tomlin. Dabo Swinney. Not one of them would thrive with this franchise as currently constructed. Not with Allen lording over the football and business operations, both sides of Snyder's crater-ridden aisle. Not in a culture that Allen incredulously labeled "damn good," but is more like "noxious dysfunction."
With the Redskins 0-5, Callahan will now be tasked with leading an NFL team -- a role he hasn't held since the Oakland Raiders fired him in 2003. And in his new capacity, Callahan made his priorities clear: He wants to re-establish the run.
On Monday, team president Bruce Allen said he would not consider trading Williams "at this time.
At his latest press conference to discuss the firing of coach Jay Gruden, Bruce Allen offered up a statement that's not likely to sit well with fans: "The culture is actually damn good," the Redskins president said.
Add Jay Gruden to this list of Dan Snyder's coaches who, to varying degrees, had unpleasant or downright embarrassing stints trying to right the Washington Redskins.
In an official statement, the Redskins say they have not met expectations at 0-5, leading to Jay Gruden's dismissal.
The Washington Redskins fired coach Jay Gruden on Monday morning after they fell to 0-5. As they look for a permanent replacement, the team named Bill Callahan as the interim head coach.
The Washington Redskins fired Jay Gruden on Monday, a day after a 33-7 loss to the New England Patriots, ousting the figure who was the longest-tenured coach under owner Dan Snyder.
Whether it was pressure, miscommunication or rust, Colt McCoy did not create the impact the Redskins had wanted in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the New England Patriots.
Redskins players and coaches are paid, and paid well, to endure, no matter how ugly this season gets. But why would fans put themselves through this?
Jay Gruden slowly walked from the Redskins locker room, briefly looking at a stat sheet while accompanied by a team official before entering the press conference room inside the bowels of FedEx Field.
The Redskins were a mess on offense. They punted 10 times. They converted just one third down. And McCoy, who has six years of experience in Gruden's offense, threw for only 119 yards.
As has become the norm at FedEx Field, the stands were packed Sunday with the opposing team's fans.
The Los Angeles Dodgers' real competition isn't the NFL. It's the Los Angeles Lakers. No one else matters, really, which makes the city atypical of most sports markets, where NFL franchises reign.
After missing practice Wednesday, Vikings wideout Stefon Diggs did not deny he wants a trade when asked Thursday in a press conference with reporters.
London Fletcher looked up at the video board in disbelief. He saw the score and time. Patriots 31, Redskins 0. And it was only midway through the third quarter. He muttered to no one in particular, 'Man, you've got to be kidding me.'
The NFL has been long-dubbed as a league of parity. But when the Redskins take on the defending champions Sunday, New England will be favored by 15 1/2 points -- making the Redskins the latest double-digit underdog this season.
Redskins quarterback Case Keenum did not practice Wednesday with a foot injury and was in a walking boot as Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy threw passes during individual drills.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday he wants to see how his quarterbacks do in practice this week, adding he needs to get injury updates on Keenum and Colt McCoy before determining a starter.
Case Keenum was largely effective for the second straight week. To open the game, he badly missed a wide-open Trey Quinn down the field. He then threw an interception on third down.
Far too often, the Redskins couldn't get off the field -- a common theme for a team that has the league's worst third-down defense.
Despite turning to Haskins, Gruden did not commit to starting the Ohio State product next week against the New England Patriots. He told reporters he would re-evaluate the situation on Monday. Beyond Haskins and Keenum, Washington could also look to veteran Colt McCoy, who practiced this week for the first time since he suffered a setback with his leg injury in mid-August.
In Sunday's 24-3 loss to the New York Giants, Dwayne Haskins' season debut wasn't enough to rally the Redskins to a victory, nor will it quiet the speculation regarding coach Jay Gruden's job.

Redskins senior vice president of communications Tony Wyllie is leaving the organization after nearly 10 years to take a job with the Special Olympics.
Like the defense, the Redskins' running game hasn't lived up to expectations. Washington's main back, Derrius Guice, is out at least eight weeks with a torn meniscus and backup Adrian Peterson didn't have the same success on Sunday compared to his effort last year when the 34-year-old emerged as the team's leading rusher.
The Washington Redskins placed cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on injured reserve Wednesday with an ankle injury and signed outside linebacker Noah Spence in a corresponding move.
