Alfred Morris - RBPosted 11/27/15 7:08pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (rib) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 27, and is listed as probable for the Week 12 game against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Barring a late setback, Morris will play after exiting early last week, but the D.C. RBs have been awfully tough to trust with the team's leading rusher failing to top 30 yards in five of the last six games.
Alfred Morris - RBPosted 11/26/15 5:59pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (ribs) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: Morris has been a full participant in each of the team's first two practices this week and is looking like he'll play after leaving early from the Skins' Week 12 game.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 11/23/15 3:21pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (knee) sprained the medial collateral ligament in one of his knees in the Week 11 loss to the Carolina Panthers. However, Reed returned to the game.
Huddle Up: Reed's injury will be something to monitor throughout the week. One of the most talented tight ends in the NFL, Reed just can't stay healthy. Derek Carrier will get the start if Reed is forced to miss time.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 11/17/15 4:22pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins' recent play has fueled discussions for a contract extension, and head coach Jay Gruden wants the team to sign Cousins. Cousins can become a free agent in the offseason, and there is no evidence that contract talks have taken place thus far. Assuming his progress continues, Cousins might strike a deal with Washington in the $17 million to $20 million per year range, according to at least one person with NFL front-office experience, given the number of NFL teams seeking a quarterback to build around and the thin pool of prospects.
Huddle Up: Cousins certainly has had his moments this season, but one thing for Washington and fantasy owners to keep in mind is that his three biggest games -- and his only three 300-yard games -- have come against the not-so-formidable defenses of Giants, Bucs and Saints. Further evidence should be required before any long-term decisions are made.
Alfred Morris - RBPosted 11/14/15 12:02am ET
Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris is unlikely to re-sign in the offseason, and RB Matt Jones is being worked into the featured role in the backfield.
Huddle Up: Jones should start to become the primary back over the last month and a half of the season. He's on the Flex radar this week against the Saints.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 11/14/15 8:14pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson looked faster in practice this week, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Jackson has a great matchup on paper this week. The Saints allow the most fantasy points to opposing receivers and have given up the most passing touchdowns in the NFL. Jackson is on the WR3 radar.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 11/5/15 4:43pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 5.
Huddle Up: Limited seems to be a part of Jackson's name this season as it's been this way for about a month as he's tried to get back on the field after his Week 1 hammy injury. Perhaps Friday will bring better news, but it doesn't seem likely as even the team's Week 8 bye wasn't enough.
Alfred Morris - RBPosted 11/3/15 10:10am ET
Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris and RB Matt Jones will continue to split carries, with Morris considered the lead back. Morris is averaging a career-low 3.32 yards per carry. The coaches want Jones to do a better job of showing patience through the hole and not bouncing it wide so often.
Huddle Up: The Redskins backfield has been a mess, and it looks like it will continue to be for the foreseeable future.
Ryan Kerrigan - LBPosted 11/3/15 4:39pm ET
Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan (hand) will meet with a surgeon Thursday, Nov. 5, to determine whether he'll play in Week 9.
Huddle Up: IDP-league alert as Kerrigan leads the team with 3.5 sacks coming off his career-best 13.5-sack season a year ago.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 11/2/15 4:45pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) participated in practice Monday, Nov. 2. Jackson said everything looks good and that he should be on the field in Week 9. Jackson has not played since Week 1.
Huddle Up: Jackson is expected to play Sunday against the Patriots barring a setback. He'll be on the WR3/4 this week assuming he's active.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 10/23/15 12:04am ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) continues to show signs of progress after a second straight practice Thursday, Oct. 22, but he must still receive final clearance from an independent neurologist before playing in Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Reed has missed the last two games but continues to be optimistic about returning this weekend.
Huddle Up: Things are looking up for Reed after his two-game absence, and signs are pointing toward the tight end receiving the green light Friday.
Matt Jones - RBPosted 10/23/15 9:23pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (toe) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 23, and is probable for Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Jones will be the passing down back with Chris Thompson out. Jones is a Flex play option in PPR formats this week.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 10/23/15 9:23pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 23, and is questionable for Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, a person with knowledge of the situation said that Reed has been cleared to play Sunday, Oct. 25. Head coach Jay Gruden said the team was waiting for a written confirmation of the clearance Friday. Reed is expected to play unless he suffers a setback.
Huddle Up: It's great news for Kirk Cousins and the Redskins' offense. Reed will be a low-end TE1 assuming he plays against the Buccaneers Sunday.
Chris Thompson - RBPosted 10/22/15 7:31pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (back) did not practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Thomspon continues to play last Sunday after suffering a back injury in the first quarter, and now he's apparently worse for the wear. If he can get on the field, though, Friday it'll go a good ways toward ensuring he'll play against the Bucs.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 10/21/15 5:26pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Jackson's lingering hammy injury already has cost him five games, and it will turn into six Sunday if he's unable to get through a full practice in the coming days. Stay tuned ...
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 10/21/15 5:41pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) said he is "100 percent" healthy and will play in Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Reed should be to able in the Week 7 matchup against the Bucs after missing the last two games, and if and when he does, he'll try to pick up where he left off after averaging six receptions and 69.5 yards over the first four contests.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 10/17/15 8:01pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for Week 6.
Huddle Up: It's not a surprise after Jackson tweaked his hamstring in practice this week. With Darrelle Revis on Pierre Garcon Sunday, Jamison Crowder could once again be Kirk Cousin's top option. Crowder is a WR4/Flex option in PPR leagues this week.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 10/16/15 2:28pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion), CB DeAngelo Hall (toe), OT Trent Williams (concussion) and CB Chris Culliver (knee) are out for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Chalk up another missed game for Reed -- it'll be his second straight and No. 14 overall since he entered the league in 2013. Meanwhile, Derek Carrier is an option if you're really hurting at TE.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 10/16/15 3:56pm ET
Updating an earlier report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Week 6 after going through individual drills Friday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: Jackson hasn't played since the season opener, and his owners can check The Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injury and Weather report before kickoff to get the last word on the WR's Sunday status.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 10/15/15 5:46pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is missing practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 15. Reed isn't expected to play in Week 6 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: The health woes continue for Reed, who will miss a second straight game. That, of course, means another start for Derek Carrier, who had two catches for 27 yards and a TD last Sunday and is an option for those desperate at tight end.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 10/14/15 10:46pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) needs to be 100% before he can return to action, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said Jackson is improving and ran some deep routes in practice Wednesday, Oct. 14, but he has yet to turn on 'absolute gas.' If Jackson doesn't return this weekend, Gruden expects him back in Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: The Redskins aren't going to push Jackson, especially when he would have to face Darrelle Revis this Sunday at less than 100 percent. The best bet is Jackson returning next week against Tampa Bay.
Matt Jones - RBPosted 10/12/15 8:54am ET
Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (toe) suffered a sprained big toe in the Week 5 overtime loss against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: We'll see if the toe injury is enough to cost Jones touches in the crowded Washington backfield.
Derek Carrier - TEPosted 10/12/15 8:54am ET
Washington Redskins TE Derek Carrier posted two receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Those numbers are a bit down for a Washington tight end but Carrier did still manage to find the end zone. Whomever the Redskins trot out at the position tends to put up helpful fantasy numbers, as Jay Gruden's offense leans heavily on the tight end. With Jordan Reed consistently dinged up, Carrier could be a bye week helper over the next month or so as fantasy teams scrape the bottom of the barrel for tight end help.
Jamison Crowder - WRPosted 10/12/15 8:54am ET
Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder posted eight receptions for 87 yards in the Week 5 game against the Atlanta Falcons, cashing in all eight of his targets.
Huddle Up: No question Crowder has performed well the past couple of weeks, but his numbers are likely due to take a hit when DeSean Jackson returns from injury. On the bright side, the rookie's performance gives Kirk Cousins another target he can trust if and when DJax is blanketed--or injured again.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 10/9/15 3:14pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) will not travel with the team and is out for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Well, Reed's fantasy owners got four starts out of tight end before the health issues cropped up. And it's one of the worst kind with concussion and hamstring problems sidelining Reed for five games last season. Derek Carrier will get the start, but is a deep-league option at best.
Matt Jones - RBPosted 10/8/15 4:50pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones is not in head coach Jay Gruden's doghouse after a crucial goal-line fumble in Week 3 against the New York Giants. 'He's never lost my trust (because of fumbles). A couple of weeks ago, it was Alfred (Morris) who was in my doghouse, and he's not. It's just the way it works out with the handoffs and the carries. I like both of those guys.'
Huddle Up: In truth, both backs have tailed off since posting 100-yard games earlier this season, combining for only 133 total yards and no TDs on 43 touches over the last two games. Sunday's matchup looks rather favorable with the Falcons allowing the most fantasy points to opposing RBs, so let's see if one -- or both -- can get back on track.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 10/8/15 7:24pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion, knee, ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: Hey, Reed hasn't missed a game yet this season so he's definitely past due. Check back Friday to see if the news is any better.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 10/7/15 10:40pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) said playing this week against the Atlanta Falcons is a possibility. Jackson said as long as he improves every day, it's possible that he'll play, although head coach Jay Gruden isn't pushing him to make a premature return. Jackson had a limited practice Wednesday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: There's a chance Jackson will play but more than likely he'll miss one week while he recovers from his hamstring injury. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere for a receiver this week.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 10/7/15 10:40pm ET
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion, knee, ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Reed is doubtful to play this week. It's a shame because he's leading the Redskins in receptions this year. Derek Carrier will start if Reed is out against the Falcons.
Jamison Crowder - WRPosted 10/5/15 8:45am ET
Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder had seven catches on 12 targets for 67 yards in a 23-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4.
Huddle Up: We'll see how much of Crowder's numbers stick after DeSean Jackson returns from injury, but for the time being at least he's become a popular target for Kirk Cousins.
