Niles Paul - TEPosted 9/30/14 4:19pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 30, and remains in the league's concussion protocol. However, head coach Jay Gruden said Paul is 'making very good progress.'
Huddle Up: Paul has an extra day to work with this week with Washington not playing until Monday night, so check in later in the week and see if he's still progressing.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 9/30/14 4:19pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) did individual drills in practice Tuesday, Sept. 30.
Huddle Up: Reed hasn't played since the opening game, and this might be the week he returns with Washington having 10 days between games. See if can get on this practice field later this week.
Niles Paul - TEPosted 9/26/14 1:26am ET
Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul suffered a concussion during the team's Week 4 game Thursday, Sept. 25. He caught three passes for 60 yards before departing with the injury in the second quarter.
Huddle Up: Paul was waylaid by several Giants' DBs after catching a pass over the middle -- drawing a head-to-head contact flag -- and briefly appeared to be out cold before leaving the field and the game. The only bright spot is that Washington has 11 days before its next game, but fellow TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) could be back by then as well.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 9/26/14 1:46am ET
Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 19 of his 33 pass attempts for 257 yards and had one touchdown and four interceptions Thursday, Sept. 25. He also lost a fumble in the team's 45-14 loss to the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Well nothing like a five-turnover disaster to tromp on the Cousins bandwagon brakes. He'll still be starting, of course, for the at least the next month or so but any talk of him securing the long-term starting gig was effectively thrown away Thursday night.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 9/25/14 2:11pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will test his injured shoulder before the game but is expected to play in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Jackson is a gamer, and you're really not doubting him now after his 5-117-1 showing with the injured shoulder past Sunday in Philly are you?
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 9/25/14 2:26pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has played well in relief of QB Robert Griffin III both this season and last year, but there is a trend that has continued in Cousins' two games this year: Teams have been able to figure him out as the games go along. He completed his first 12 passes against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2 and opened the game with eight straight completions against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3, but then he completed only around half of his remaining throws in those games. Down the stretch last year, Cousins' stats were worse with each loss, and he threw four touchdowns to five interceptions down the stretch.
Huddle Up: Something to definitely keep an eye on, but wait for clear signs of regression before you start thinking about removing him from your starting lineup.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 9/25/14 7:57pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active Thursday, Sept. 25, against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: As expected, Jackson is a full go tonight in D.C. Start him if you need him.
Alfred Morris - RBPosted 9/24/14 4:38pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 24, and is listed as probable for Week 4.
Huddle Up: After being spelled late in Week 3, Morris looks good to go Thursday night against a Giants' defense which is slightly better than average (13th) against opposing fantasy RBs.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 9/23/14 4:02pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out for the team's Week 4 game. Reed is not sure when he will play again, and his status is not known for the team's Week 5 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: This will make 3 straight missed games for Reed, and it's starting to seem like his rookie season all over again when he missed 6 contests. He's totally expendable in 10-team leagues if you haven't already pulled the plug.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 9/23/14 4:16pm ET
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden did not rule out QB Kirk Cousins permanently replacing QB Robert Griffin III at quarterback. 'Crazy things have happened in NFL,' Gruden said. 'I'm not going to discount anything'
Huddle Up: Some wins and more than a one-game sample will be needed, but 30-of-48, 427 yards and three TDs wasn't too shabby of a starting point.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 9/22/14 7:20pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was limited during practice Monday, Sept. 22. The team participated in a jog-through Monday.
Huddle Up: Jackson was targeted a healthy 11 times Sunday and had a 5-117-1 outing vs. old team in Philly and seemed to emerge from the contest no worse for wear so expect him to be a full-go Thursday night.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 9/22/14 7:20pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Sept. 22. The team participated in a jog-though Monday.
Huddle Up: Reed has missed the last 2 games, and it might be tough for him to get ready on a short week. In short, it looks to be another week of Niles Paul unless we hear otherwise.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 9/19/14 2:06pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson made steps in a 'positive direction,' however. Jackson went through individual drills in practice Friday, Sept. 19.
Huddle Up: Jackson is dealing with a painful AC joint sprain, and it will likely come down to a Sunday-morning decision. The guess here is that he'll play vs. his former team, but we're a little less than 48 hours from knowing for sure.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 9/19/14 2:06pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out of Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: That means another green light for the owners of Niles Paul, who leads the team with 12 catches, 185 yards and a TD on 15 targets.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 9/17/14 3:45pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will play in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles, his former team, according to Eagles RB LeSean McCoy. "He's playing," McCoy said. "He said he's definitely playing. That's the first thing he texted, he said 'I'm playing.' "
Huddle Up: Jackson didn't practice Wednesday as he recovers from his mild AC joint sprain, but most all reports have the WR lining up Sunday against his former team. See what the rest of the week holds.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 9/15/14 1:27pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) isn't dealing with a fractured ankle, according to an MRI exam, and he doesn't think surgery is necessary. The best-case scenario for Griffin to recover from the injury is six to eight weeks, according to several surgeons.
Huddle Up: Kirk Cousins will start for Washington in the meantime and could retain the job even when RG3 returns if he plays well. Cousin is a high-end QB2 with upside.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 9/15/14 8:53pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder), who is day-to-day with a shoulder sprain, said he plans to play in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source that has talked with Jackson. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson's playing status will be determined based on pain throughout the week.
Huddle Up: It's no secret Jackson would love to square off against his former team, but he's going to have to demonstrate he's ready in the next 6 days. Stay tuned ...
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 9/14/14 8:14pm ET
Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) suffered a sprained AC joint in the first quarter of the Week 2 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. 'I feel a little better from when it first happened,' Jackson said Sunday, Sept. 14. 'The player actually just fell right on my shoulder.' Jackson said he considers himself day to day, and it is too early to know if he'll be ready for the Week 3 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: If Jackson can't play in Week 3 he'll be replaced by a combination of Andre Roberts and Ryan Grant. Both receivers would have a strong matchup against a weak Eagles secondary.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 9/14/14 8:20pm ET
Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) has been diagnosed with a dislocated ankle after leaving the Week 2 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He is expected to undergo further testing Monday, Sept. 15, to determine the severity of his injury.
Huddle Up: Griffin will miss time for sure, it's just a matter of how much. Kirk Cousins is Washington's starting QB for what could be the rest of the season and a strong QB2 moving forward. Owners in need of QB help should target Cousins on the waiver wire this week.
Niles Paul - TEPosted 9/13/14 2:02pm ET
Washington Redskins TEs Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen will rotate at tight end during the team's Week 2 game, according to offensive coordinator Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Neither TE offers much fantasy value at the moment. Paul - a former college WR - has more upside and could be a TE2 this week if he gets enough targets. He did catch four balls for 86 yards in the opener. However, owners should look elsewhere if they are replacing Jordan Reed.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 9/12/14 2:37pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Here's the official nail in the coffin for those Reed owners who were still holding out a glimmer of hope.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 9/10/14 4:42pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 2, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'He's a long shot, I would say,' Gruden said.
Huddle Up: As expected, it looks like Reed's fantasy owners are going to have to make other plans for Week 2 and possibly beyond. D.C. backup Niles Paul is among the fill-in options as he led the team with 86 yards on 4 receptions in the opener.
Niles Paul - TEPosted 9/9/14 7:31pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul is set to continue as the starting tight end with TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) likely to miss some time. Head coach Jay Gruden said Reed will require an MRI exam to see if he can play in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Paul led the team with 86 receiving yards on four catches in Week 1 against the Houston Texans, but he also fumbled. He had four catches for 51 yards last season.
Huddle Up: If you're a Reed owner in a deep league where the TE pickings are slim on the waiver wire, definitely give Paul some strong consideration -- especially with it sounding as if Reed may miss a few games.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 9/7/14 9:47pm ET
Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on his left hamstring after leaving the Week 1 game against the Houston Texans. He might be sidelined at least two weeks. 'It's pretty frustrating,' Reed said Sunday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Reed is a talented TE but he's been hampered by injuries during his NFL career. If Reed misses time, Logan Paulsen will start for Washington but he's nothing more than a low-end TE2 for fantasy purposes.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 9/5/14 5:13pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (thumb) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 5, but is questionable for Week 1 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Reed has practiced all week and should be good to go Sunday.
Brian Orakpo - LBPosted 9/4/14 2:23pm ET
Washington Redskins LB Brian Orakpo said he does not believe his injured ankle will limit his play Week 1. He expects to be limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 4.
Huddle Up: Orakpo sounds fairly safe to roll with in Week 1 for those IDP owners counting on the veteran LB. Just make sure and double check his status closer to game day.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 9/3/14 5:37pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (thumb) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: Good news for Reed owners who are hoping the TE follows up his concussion-curtailed rookie year with a strong second season.
Chris Thompson - RBPosted 8/28/14 3:42pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (ankle) will be able to play in the final preseason game after missing the last two preseason games because of a sprained ankle.
Huddle Up: Thompson might need the preseason game of his life to secure a roster spot, particularly with sixth-round pick Lache Seastrunk making quite the impression this August.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 8/25/14 3:28pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (thumb) is dealing with a sprained thumb but should be ready to play Week 1, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: The injury isn't ideal and is something for fantasy owners to monitor but it shouldn't keep Reed out of the lineup. Reed is primed for a big season as long as he can stay healthy.
Brandon Meriweather - SPosted 8/25/14 8:01pm ET
Washington Redskins SS Brandon Meriweather has been suspended two games for his sixth violation of the player safety rules.
Huddle Up: At this point, you wonder if Merriweather will ever learn, and Washington can consider itself lucky that the starting SS only got tagged 2 games for a sixth violation. In any case, the Skins lead the league in suspended safeties with Tanard Jackson also on the banned list.
