Rookie Jonathan Allen Done For The Season


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

The staunch Redskins defense received some tough injury news yesterday – rookie defensive lineman Jonathan Allen is done for the remainder of the 2017 season. Allen suffered the injury in the second half of Washington’s 26-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Allen sustained a Lisfranc sprain, and although at first Redskins head coach Jay Gruden seemed optimistic about a quicker return, news broke yesterday from several outlets that Allen will require surgery, and is indeed done for the remainder of 2017.

Bye Week Gives Redskins A Chance to Heal Their Injuries


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

Two things were clear at the end of the Redskins game against the Chiefs on Monday night, Washington had not only lost the game, they had lost some personnel as well. The two went hand-in-hand. They will benefit greatly from an early season bye week, as the extra time will obviously allow some injuries to heal enough to play. How those injuries progress will affect the team Washington can field, and subsequently, the Redskins odds for the next game.

With the bye, Washington don’t play again until October 15th against the San Francisco 49ers. The Redskins had this game highlighted on the calendar already, as they will be facing former coach Kyle Shanahan, and it will be Pierre Garcon’s first time back at Fed Ex Field since leaving in the offseason.

Redskins Injury Situation Reached Near Comical Proportions Against Chiefs


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

The Redskins suffered a tough loss to the Chiefs on Monday Night, and given the ridiculous injuries that piled up, it isn’t that hard to understand why a Washington defense that was stuffing Kansas City – suddenly couldn’t.

While there have been mentions of the injuries in many articles, few seem to talk about the collective effect that these injuries had. There were so many that it was hard to follow. Several players went down – only to return; making it even harder to follow.

I have to admit, even though I am used to the fickle nature of NFL fandom, I was quite surprised at the number of people in the twitterverse that were throwing the Redskins under the bus for losing the Monday night game. Not because they lost to a good NFL team – but for failing to recognize some very glaring NFL game facts. Like the injuries the Redskins had to contend with.

I’m just going to take a quick look at the defense and point a few things out. I grabbed the Redskins depth chart from ESPN, and then started making a few annotations. Here is what I came up with.

HogWire’s Injury Report Week Two

The St. Louis Rams versus the Washington Redskins

 

Offensive Tackle Chris Samuels and Defensive Tackle Anthony Montgomery were both limited in practice this week and both were dealing with knee problems. The Washington Redskins have said they have to manage Samuels’s knee throughout the season, because Chris had knee surgery in the offseason and experienced some minor knee problems in the preseason. Coach Jim Zorn said Anthony Montgomery “has a little roughness on his knee”, and is limited in practice because of patellar tendinitis.
