Jordan Reed - TEPosted 12/17/14 5:00pm ET
Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (personal) received a personal day off to attend the birth of a child Wednesday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: No worries for those Reed owners who saw that the oft-injured TE wasn't on the practice field Wednesday.
Roy Helu - RBPosted 12/16/14 12:48am ET
Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) has a chance to play in Week 16. Helu was not able to play in Week 15 because of the toe injury.
Huddle Up: Helu, who has caught 38 passes for 436 yards and was on pace to set a career high in receptions, has actually missed the last two games and his return could send Chris Thompson and Silas Redd back to the bench.
Jay Gruden - HCPosted 12/16/14 10:43am ET
Although the Washington Redskins haven't confirmed the news, sources have said coach Jay Gruden will be retained as coach for the 2015 season.
Huddle Up: Even Dan Snyder wouldn't pull the plug that quickly... would he?
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/16/14 3:55pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) was placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Dec. 16, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Tough way to end things for McCoy, Meanwhile, it looks like RGIII will get that season-ending audition after all.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/15/14 1:32pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was 18-for-27 for 236 yards and a touchdown in the team's loss to the New York Giants in Week 15, and head coach Jay Gruden is unsure if Griffin will start again in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Gruden wants to watch film and learn more about QB Colt McCoy's (neck) injury. '(Griffin) is obviously in the mix,' Gruden said. 'He came out here and competed, which I liked. Made some good throws and made some great plays with his legs, but from a consistent standpoint, the production on third downs and the lack of production in the second half (offensively) was concerning. I'll have to check the film to give him a total grade.' McCoy headed for the locker room after the first series of the game.
Huddle Up: Washington faces a porous Eagles pass defense this week but McCoy and Griffin would be nothing more than a desperation start for Fantasy Super Bowls.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 12/15/14 3:57pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is expected to be the starting quarterback for Week 16, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Griffin plays an Eagles defense that has given up career games to Kirk Cousins, Austin Davis and Zach Mettenberger this season. He's a desperation play if you need him but hopefully owners that made it to their Fantasy Championship Games won't need to rely on RG3.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/14/14 12:04am ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is 50-50 to play in Week 15, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Jackson will be a game-time decision against the Giants. If he plays, Jackson is a WR3 for fantasy playoffs.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/12/14 2:32pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) practiced in full and took all the first-team repetitions Friday, Dec. 12, but he's listed as questionable for Week 15 against the New York Giants. McCoy must first be cleared by a specialist before playing in Week 15.
Huddle Up: It's looking very much like McCoy will start Sunday in N.Y., but definitely double-check to make sure he gets final medical clearance.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/12/14 2:50pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Jackson, coming off a missed Week 14 start, has been limited most of the week, but he has ordered custom-made cleats for this week so, hey, that's one positive sign. Jackson owners, though, are advised to check the Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injury and Weather report Sunday morning to get confirmation on his status.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/11/14 2:44pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) said he did more in practice Thursday, Dec. 11, but he is not where he wants to be yet.
Huddle Up: Jackson is progressing, and what he can do -- or can't do -- Friday will likely determine if he'll play Sunday against the Giants or miss a second straight game.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/11/14 4:13pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) will start in Week 15 if he's cleared to play by the doctors, according to head coach Jay Gruden. McCoy was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11 for the second straight day. QB Robert Griffin III likely would start if McCoy is not able to play.
Huddle Up: Reading between the lines, it sounds like McCoy has convinced the coaches he's well enough to start, and all that's needed is a medical green light. We should gain some clarity Friday.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/10/14 2:01pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) said he is making good progress in his rehab from a neck injury. He was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10 said the injury does not affect his throwing motion and that he can't make the injury worse if he plays.
Huddle Up: Washington's starting QB decision for Sunday remains up in the air, and we'll see what the rest of the practice week reveals.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/10/14 6:20pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10 and is 50-50 to play in Week 15 against the New York Giants, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Jackson has a decent chance of playing this week after sitting out in Week 14, but let's see what he's able to do Thursday and Friday.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/9/14 12:27am ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's (leg) status for Week 15 is uncertain at this point, but the team hopes he will be able to play, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: It will be a week of monitoring injury reports for Jackson owners after the WR missed his first game of the season.
Roy Helu - RBPosted 12/9/14 7:57pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) will miss at least Week 15 against the New York Giants with turf toe, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Helu will visit with a foot specialist, and he could have to sit out for the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: Stay tuned if you've been using Helu in a deep league, and pick up Silas Redd if you're truly out of RB options.
Roy Helu - RBPosted 12/8/14 10:34am ET
Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) had x-rays on his toe after the Week 14 game against the St. Louis Rams. Helu said Sunday, Dec. 7, that the x-rays did not reveal anything 'acute,' but he will still have an MRI Monday, Dec. 8, just to be sure.
Huddle Up: Not good news for the Redskins' pass-catching back, though fantasy owners of Alfred Morris could benefit if Helu is out and Morris stays on the field for more third downs.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/8/14 3:59pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III would start if QB Colt McCoy (neck) is unable to play. McCoy suffered a neck strain in Week 14.
Huddle Up: McCoy is still getting evaluated but if he can't play against the Giants on Sunday Griffin will be back under center. RG3 is no more than a lower-end QB2 at this point though.
Roy Helu - RBPosted 12/8/14 8:36pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) will probably miss this week with a toe injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: If Helu misses a second straight game, expect to see more of Silas Redd spelling Alfred Morris. Redd had one carry for 8 yards and three catches for 36 yards in Week 14.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/7/14 10:22pm ET
Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) left the Week 14 game against the St. Louis Rams in the fourth quarter due to a neck injury. He was taken to an offsite medical facility for further tests, a team official said Sunday, Dec. 7.
Huddle Up: McCoy's status will be updated further on Monday. Robert Griffin finished up the game Sunday against the Rams. If McCoy is injured, RG3 could be back under center versus the Giants in Week 15.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/5/14 2:25pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) missed practice Friday, Dec. 5 and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.
Huddle Up: Jackson hasn't practiced all week after getting injured last Sunday, and even though he's a gamer, he has to be considered a rather iffy Week 14 proposition at this point. Be prepared for a game-time decision, and get your backup plans in order in the meantime.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/4/14 10:28am ET
Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) was still visibly limping on the sidelines Wednesday, Dec. 3.
Huddle Up: Jackson still has a few days to lose the limp and play, but it's a situation worth monitoring if you're banking on a big fantasy outing from DJax this week.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/1/14 2:37pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's (leg) fibula contusion isn't believed to be serious, and he's not expected to miss any time, according to a source close to him.
Huddle Up: Jackson's official status should be updated later in the day but early reports sound promising. He's likely to miss practice time this week though at the very least.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 11/30/14 10:27pm ET
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Sunday, Nov. 30, that QB Colt McCoy will remain the starting quarterback heading into Week 14.
Huddle Up: McCoy has clearly outplayed Robert Griffin this season. However, McCoy won't be a fantasy option against a tough Rams defense in Week 14.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 11/30/14 10:27pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) left the Week 13 game against the Indianapolis Colts due to a right fibula contusion. He was helped to the sidelines in the fourth quarter and carted off to the locker room. He was limping noticeably after the game, and might be re-examined Monday, Dec. 1. However, X-rays were negative.
Huddle Up: We'll have to wait until Monday to get more information on Jackson's injury. It sounds like he'll miss practice time for sure and he should be considered questionable for Week 14.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 11/28/14 5:54pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) took part in a full practice Friday, Nov. 28, but is questionable for Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Going by Friday's full-participation designation, you have to like Reed's chances of playing this week, but check in Sunday morning with the Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injury and Weather report to get the final word.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 11/27/14 4:53pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Reed, who sat out Week 11, was limited for the second straight day and there's a cautious optimism he might be able to give it a go Sunday in Indy. Friday's practice report should be a little more telling.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 11/26/14 12:34am ET
The Washington Redskins are planning to start QB Colt McCoy in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts in place of struggling QB Robert Griffin III, according to a team source.
Huddle Up: Things are a mess in D.C. -- and we're not just talking politics. McCoy did, however, lead the Skins to their last win -- a 20-17 victory in Dallas in Week 8 -- throwing for 299 yards and rushing for 16 yards and a TD in his lone start, so this should be a welcome fantasy change for the team's pass-catchers. (Hey, it can't get much worse). Meanwhile, the question is whether RGIII has made his last start for Washington.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 11/26/14 10:33am ET
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has officially been benched in favor of QB Colt McCoy in Week 13. Head coach Jay Gruden informed the team Wednesday, Nov. 26. However, Griffin still appears to be part of the team's long-term plan, another source said Tuesday.
Huddle Up: RG3 has struggled this season; it's going to take time and reps in Jay Gruden's offense for him to get comfortable, and right now the team would rather take a shot at maybe winning a game with McCoy at the helm than hopefully developing Griffin into the quarterback he can be in this offense. So any talk of an actual long-term plan in Washington is laughable.
Alfred Morris - RBPosted 11/24/14 10:09am ET
Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris averaged 6.0 yards per attempt on 21 carries in the Week 12 game against the San Francisco 49ers. It was his first 100-yard game of the season, and first since Nov. 7, 2013, against the Minnesota Vikings. 'I stopped trying to think too much,' Morris said Sunday, Nov. 23. 'I said this weeks ago: I was thinking too much. I've been playing this game since I was five. I know how to be a runner. I just stopped thinking and stopped trying to make things happen that weren't there.'
Huddle Up: Morris and the Redskins are capable of grinding it out on the ground, even against a good run defense like the 49ers. And with the passing game struggling, that may need to be the team's MO for the foreseeable future.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 11/24/14 4:26pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will start Sunday, Nov. 30, against the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: RG3 was awful Sunday against the 49ers but in fairness to him he didn't get much help from his offensive line. Griffin is no longer on the fantasy radar as anything more than a risky QB2.
