When Josh Johnson got the call from the Redskins, he was visiting a 19-year-old who had cancer. And on Tuesday, even as he prepares for the Jaguars, the quarterback made sure to check on him again. https://t.co/zMtImD9lwZ— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) December 14, 2018
Gruden said Luke Bowanko will likely start at right guard.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) December 14, 2018
Chris Thompson questionable; he was sick today— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 14, 2018
Josh Doctson is questionable. He still has another step in the protocol, but he is on the upward trend.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 14, 2018
Another one to watch is Nick Sundberg, who has a lower back issue. They are emergency working out another long snapper this afternoon just in case.

Gruden said long snapper Nick Sundberg has a lower back condition and is getting an MRI this afternoon. They are flying in potential replacements in case he can’t play. Complicates other looming roster moves like the promotion of a tight end from practice squad.— Les Carpenter (@Lescarpenter) December 14, 2018
Between the long snapper situation and Reed's absence, which will require adding a player from the PS, Redskins might need to open 1-2 roster spots. This team with injuries, man, https://t.co/UnlEIB2fDr— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) December 14, 2018

"Payne was one of the few bright spots on a Redskins defense that simply rolled over in their Week 14 game against the New York Giants."https://t.co/8KjShenl3t— PFF WAS Redskins (@PFF_Redskins) December 14, 2018
Redskins allow 5.67 yards after catch per catch to WRS, 31st in the NFL. Some is related to cushion: too much at times; WR has 3-5 yards free room to work after catch at times. EZ $. Some related to missed tackles: 1.84 yards after 1st contact. Also 31st. Good (mid) morning!— John Keim (@john_keim) December 14, 2018
This is the kind of year it's been for the Redskins' passing game. the WRs have 459 yards after the catch this season; 76 came on the TD by Crowder last week. That's 16.6 percent of the total. Blame whatever you want for this, but this is the stat. @ESPNStatsInfo— John Keim (@john_keim) December 14, 2018
#Redskins/Jags should be enjoyable for those who hate scoring. And fun. Over/under (36) is the lowest of any NFL game in six years.— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) December 14, 2018

HaHa Clinton-Dix replacing Montae Nicholson at safety received scrutiny this week. The extra focus also provided a chance to re-examine reasons for the swap in the first place.— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) December 14, 2018
If Gruden was at any risk of in-season firing, it probably would have happened Monday. But would he seriously survive a fifth straight loss, at the hands of Cody Kessler and the 4-9 Jags? Especially if it's ugly (again)?— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) December 14, 2018
Mason Foster speaks to the media for the first time about messages from his Instagram account that were critical of the team and fans that have circulated online ️ pic.twitter.com/FftX2W5rIz— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) December 14, 2018
Linebacker Mason Foster said he's working on forgiving his cousin for the Instagram posts. He said the exchange also had been edited, with some comments from the other side deleted. But Foster had a message for fans. pic.twitter.com/tPsNI6XjxA— John Keim (@john_keim) December 14, 2018
How the Mason Foster controversy went down, from the initial leak to the apology: https://t.co/wI7VupY5hC— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) December 14, 2018
Exclusive tidbit - Mason says he did not know about the group of leaked messages that included the homophobic slur until I told him about them while reporting on this on Wednesday. https://t.co/DEguk09QvV— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 14, 2018
New Saints rookie WR Simmie Cobbs Jr.: "No brainer to come here." pic.twitter.com/65I7QZDm3d— Saints News & Analysis | NOLA.com (@SaintsNOW) December 14, 2018
If you want to criticize Washington for not calling Cobbs up earlier, that’s totally legit. Harris/Floyd have played at expendable levels.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 14, 2018
However, to see choosing the Saints as some indictment of the Skins makes no sense. They’re the Saint.
After practice today, Zach Brown was walking around the locker room talking out loud about how Simmie Cobbs is gonna "ball out" in New Orleans. Let's see— Peter Hailey (@PeterHaileyNBCS) December 14, 2018
The #Redskins have a lack of urgency way too often. It's almost like they just think nothing will happen (injury wise) or nobody will pluck a player off practice squad/waivers. Been burned way too many times, IMO. https://t.co/NSOBKVrJ47— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) December 14, 2018

Adrian Peterson has 872 rushing yards this year.— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) December 14, 2018
"For me, I feel like 1,000 yards is easy. I've always felt that way. It'll happen. I'm not pressing for it. It'll happen."
Reminder: "Gruden has two years left on his contract, thanks to a two-year extension he received after the 2016 season. The extra years were for a combined $10M in fully g'teed money." (This was premature and unnecessary.)— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) December 15, 2018
Odell Beckham explained in his Uninterrupted docu-series “I AM MORE: OBJ” that he did more damage to his quad on the final play of practice last Thursday. Also had an interesting recap of this season in a letter he wrote to himself. https://t.co/5HqaWKHA19— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) December 15, 2018
Odell Beckham described the injury to his quad as a "hematoma" in his latest Facebook video.— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) December 15, 2018
That's "a collection of blood outside a blood vessel". They can take longer to develop. Sometimes they have to be drained. Sometimes they're a symptom of a larger problem.
Is Wentz injury prone? The numbers say... https://t.co/q0DK1i8QsP— Eliot Shorr-Parks (@EliotShorrParks) December 15, 2018
Jon Gruden's return to coaching has been good for the Bears and Cowboys and, at least so far, not so wonderful for the Raiders... https://t.co/tvrs0jSlIR— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) December 15, 2018
Nick Saban statement: "DJ Durkin is spending a few days with our staff in Tuscaloosa from a professional development standpoint. He has not been hired in any capacity at Alabama. He is simply observing our operation as many other coaches have done through the years.”— The Athletic CFB (@TheAthleticCFB) December 15, 2018
