SNAFU: Redskins Make Some Injury Decisions – DeAngelo Hall Activated


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

The Redskins released some injury and roster news today, as usual, most of it no good.

As of now, Shawn Lauvao (stinger), Matt Ioannidis (hand), and tight ends Jordan Reed (hamstring) and Niles Paul (concussion) are all officially out for the Seahawks matchup. None of those four are that surprising, but what was surprising was that after finally stirring a bit last week against Dallas, Jamison Crowder was downgraded to out with his hamstring injury.

With five guys on the active roster out, that means that only two of the players currently listed as doubtful, questionable or probable can sit. The rest will have to dress to have the full 47-man roster. Read the rest of this entry »

The Redskins Injury Situation Has Officially Reached A Sublime State


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

Do you ever remember an instance where an NFL team couldn’t field a roster? That is exactly the situation that the WRedskins currently find themselves in, coming off a tough loss to the Cowboys this past weekend. Obviously the state of the roster drastically affects the Washington Redskins betting odds this week, and Jay Gruden added a few more critical names to the Redskins unavailable list on Monday at his press conference.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) was the most “marquee” player added to the laundry list of injuries this week, along with fellow tight end Niles Paul who is under the NFL’s concussion protocol after a scary helmet-to-helmet collision against Dallas. Promising defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis will undergo surgery to his hand and definitely will not be available for this week’s matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.

There are 53 players on an NFL roster – each week, the team is allowed to activate 47 of them. Right now, 13 of those 53 Redskins players are injured. The team is literally in danger of not being able to field a full football squad this week against Seattle. And that 13 doesn’t include Morgan Moses somehow, who is playing on two sprained knees.

Jordan Reed Back to Save Redskins from Shame


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

Who knew the Washington Redskins would miss tight end Jordan Reed this much? Things haven’t been going too well. And even though it’s still the preseason, the Redskins betting odds are still a little worrisome.

Redskins fans breathed a sigh of relief when they learned that the Pro Bowl tight end had been removed from the PUP list on Sunday. That means fans can look forward to seeing him in practice sometime in the week.

The news was actually pretty big and it made Sunday that much brighter for anyone that cares about this season for the Redskins. Reed hasn’t been available since before the training camp. Read the rest of this entry »

E.J. Bibbs Hopes to Land Spot on Redskins Final Roster


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

The Washington Redskins made tight end E.J. Bibbs their first training camp signee last Thursday, after an impressive showing during his tryout. With Bibbs, the Redskins now have six tight ends on the 90-man roster. If you want to bet on the Redskins this season, check out the NFL odds for the Washington Redskins.

After he earned the roster spot, Bibbs got to practice with his new teammates. He told reporters that he thought he was just coming in to try out and expected a pretty easy day. However, after making the team, he had to practice after the tryouts as well. Although he admitted he was a little tired, he acknowledged that the rigorous workouts and practice are part of football.

Opportunities to sign with a team after workouts don’t come around very often, unless there is an injury or injuries. In Bibbs’ case, the injuries are to Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Reed, who is currently on the physically unable to perform list, and Vernon Davis, who is nursing a hamstring injury.

Jordan Reed: #WallpaperWednesday


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

After sitting out the previous two games with a concussion, it didn’t take long for Jordan Reed to make an impact when he returned.

Reed’s presence was obvious. Not only did he catch 11 passes for 72 yards and two touchdowns, but his last catch was the game winner in Washington’s thrilling 31-30 come-from-behind victory over the Bucs. The Redskins lined up 4 receivers left, Reed to the right, and what looked like a good position and time for a fade, turned into a quick slant for a touchdown when Reed immediately planted, went inside, and too quickly for anyone to react. Cousins hit him in stride en route to the end zone, and the Redskins polished off the biggest comeback in franchise history.

Reed’s Touchdown

Trent Williams had some pretty high praise for Reed after the game, “You show me anyone in the league who can guard that man one-on-one. I haven’t seen that yet. As long as we’ve got him, we got a chance. He’s the best receiving tight end that I’ve seen.”

Welcome back Jordan. Stay healthy.

Enjoy. Share. Hail.

Best and Worst: Redskins Versus Texans


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

At times, it was painful. At others, blissful. So goes the average game for an armchair quarterback. Here are a collection of the best and worst moments from Washington’s 17-6 loss to the Texans in Houston on Sunday.

Best Redskins Debut: Jason Hatcher
He registered his first sack in his first game, and was disruptive for much of it. He got nicked up in his first action in the burgundy and gold, but managed to return. He’s pretty good. Read the rest of this entry »

Expect a very potent Redskins offense in 2014


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

Tampa Bay Buccaneers v Washington Redskins

Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins offense, had a very tough 2013 season. RGIII was coming off knee surgery last off-season, which really hindered his development. He didn’t have the off-season workouts that most quarterbacks and receivers have. He had to spend all of last off-season rehabbing his surgically repaired right knee.

So what can we expect from Robert Griffin III in 2014? I personally expect a healthy and rejuvenated RGIII that will be the comeback player of the year next season. He now has an off-season to develop his game and to start finding a rhythm with his receivers. New Redskins head coach Jay Gruden, who worked with Andy Dalton in Cincinnati, can definitely help RGIII become a much better quarterback. Read the rest of this entry »
