Redskins WR Jamison Crowder Out for Sunday’s Game Against Tampa Bay

Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder has been downgraded to out for the Week 10 road game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday according to the team’s Twitter account.

Crowder has not played since Week 5 as he struggles to return from an ankle injury. There was some hope he could return this Sunday after he practiced on Thursday but ultimately the team decided he was not healthy enough to take the field against the Bucs.

It is a major blow for the Redskins as the Bucs have been exploited by slot receivers this season, putting Maurice Harris firmly in play with Crowder now officially out. Josh Doctson and Michael Floyd will be in three-wide sets with Harris, but neither are viable options on the outside.

Arbitrator Rules in Redskins Favor in Scot McCloughan’s Grievance Over 2017 Firing

More than a year after former general manager Scot McCloughan filed a grievance against the Washington Redskins over his March 2017 firing, an NFL arbitrator has ruled in the team’s favor, Liz Clarke and Mark Maske of the Washington Post report.

McCloughan had sought payment of the roughly $2.8 million remaining on his four-year contract when the team dismissed him with 22 months remaining on his deal.

Details of the ruling by NFL-appointed arbitrator Peter Harvey, a former New Jersey attorney general, were not available. But it is a final decision, with no avenue for appeal under the NFL’s system.

McCloughan filed the grievance with the NFL in summer 2017, contending that he was fired unjustly. During his tenure, the Redskins posted back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in 19 years (winning the NFC East with a 9-7 record in 2015 and finishing 8-7-1 in 2016).

The Redskins, however, asserted they fired McCloughan “for cause.” Within days of McCloughan’s firing on March 9, 2017, the team-owned radio station speculated that McCloughan was abusing alcohol. A team official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told The Washington Post that the general manager was ousted because he had reported to work intoxicated.

Predicting the Wins and Losses for the 2018 Washington Redskins

The Redskins season is set to kickoff this week along with the rest of the NFL, and while there’s still a few days before the season starts, today we will run through their entire schedule one-by-one and give you the wins and losses in our mind for the squad.

Week One 9/9 at Arizona – The 2018 season kicks off with a game in Arizona against a Cards team that is going to be in transition with Sam Bradford as their starting QB. It would be nice to get off to a fast start, and with Alex Smith leading the way, the Skins start 1-0 with a hard fought win at the end.

20-17 Redskins
Record 1-0

Week Two 9/16 vs Indianapolis – The 2018 home opener sees Andrew Luck and the Colts in town, with Luck trying to get his career back on track after missing an entire year. The Skins D should be able to do enough to create a turnover or two, and with it should be able to surprise and get to 2-0.

17-16 Redskins
Record 2-0

Week Three 9/23 at Green Bay – The Packers will get the Skins after they are 2-0, and Aaron Rodgers and the Pack will make the Redskins pay with a secondary meltdown as he throws for 348 yards and three scores in an easy Packers win.

Packers 34-17
Record 2-1

Week Four BYE – The Redskins work on their beat down from the week before by the Packers.

Redskins to Chat with Former Vikings Running Back Adrian Peterson

The Redskins are talking about bringing in a big name running back, but one who was on two teams last season – that being one-time Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.

Peterson started last season in New Orleans and was traded to the Arizona Cardinals, and is still a free agent on the open market.

Here’s the tweet about the possible move for the Redskins backfield.

Tensions High in Jets/Redskins Joint Practices Involving Former Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor

There’s no love lost between Terrelle Pryor and the Redskins, Matt Stypulkoski of NJ Advance Media reports.

The Jets’ wide receiver and his former team came into this week’s joint practices surrounded by controversy. But for the most part, they’ve stayed out of trouble.

That changed Tuesday, though.

After Pryor went one-on-one with Redskins’ safety D.J. Swearinger, the two started jawing back and forth. That led to Swearinger throwing a fake punch, which Pryor fell for – and flinched in a major way.

That incident was just one of a few during the teams’ final joint practice on Tuesday.

Jets defensive end Nathan Shepherd got into a shoving and wrestling match with Shawn Lauvao during team drills, drawing a crowd. A little earlier, a full-team skirmish broke out between the Jets’ offense and Redskins’ defense, though no punches were thrown. Jets’ defensive back Rashard Robinson got into a verbal war with Redskins’ tight end Cam Sims during 7-on-7 drills, too.

That was tame compared to Sunday’s practice, though. The first joint workout between the two teams devolved into chaos with a handful of large fights, which Todd Bowles later admonished.
