The Daily Twitter will be posted at the beginning of every day (at midnight in Washington, DC). The goal is to give readers a handy spot to check the Redskins beat writers & bloggers, and national sports journalists to keep up on the latest news about the Redskins, the NFL, and sports in general, along with a smattering of other things.

Bill Callahan calls Chris Thompson, Adrian Peterson, Josh Norman day to day. Vernon Davis still in the protocol. Bryce Love surgery is to clean up scar tissue, according to Callahan. No setback anything new. #redskins— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) October 22, 2019
Vernon Davis continues in individual. I think that means he can’t play Thursday because they’re out of team practices, which (to my knowledge) he would need to participate in before playing.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 22, 2019
Will double check on that.
Adrian Peterson may be banged up, but he will do everything in his power to play Thursday night.— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) October 22, 2019
"Of course I want to play against Minnesota. I was there for 10 years."

Adrian Peterson spoke to the media about his time in Minnesota, how he is feeling and more. pic.twitter.com/yZpkFhjUEX— Washington Redskins (@Redskins) October 22, 2019
Adrian Peterson plans on playing Thursday: "I feel pretty confident in saying that. Yesterday was rough. I really didn't know. I woke up this morning feeling really good. The swelling I had went down tremendously and I was able to get some cardio in ... So I should be good."— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) October 22, 2019
Confirming Redskins rookie RB Bryce Love underwent another knee procedure. Told the cleanup part of the original plan for ACL tear suffered in final game at Stanford. So, no setback for the 4th rounder, but certainly all about 2020 now. @JPFinlayNBCS 1st with the deets.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) October 22, 2019
When I told everybody Colt McCoy actually did about as good as he could’ve against New England, I wasn’t kidding. He has the second highest passer rating against them all year. https://t.co/MPNswuIV8W— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 22, 2019
Booger McFarland argues loudly that Sam Darnold, a 2nd-year quarterback coming off a win over Dallas and a decent rookie year, might endure a mental setback from this MNF massacre.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) October 22, 2019
Seems ludicrous, but perhaps remember this as we ponder when rookie Dwayne Haskins should start.

Through the first half watching Skins vs 49ers All-22. Stand out by far was Matt Ioannidis. Was incredible. 49ers couldn’t block him, kept breaking double teams in run game.— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) October 22, 2019
Without Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson, here are the running backs practicing today: pic.twitter.com/x0izhWtons— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) October 22, 2019
Redskins quarterback Alex Smith helping out during practice Tuesday. He's been throwing on the field after practices, though from a stationary position. His right leg remains protected. https://t.co/WPzhuBaqvI pic.twitter.com/cb1wamVreF— John Keim (@john_keim) October 22, 2019
On Smith being back at practices regularly, Callahan said: “He has a unique intellect that sees the game a lot differently than a lot of other people. He can give us as a staff insight as to what's transpiring with a player or a concept, a scheme, a defense.”— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) October 22, 2019
Callahan on Vikings RB, and NFL leading rusher Dalvin Cook:— Ryan Fowler (@FowlerRyan1) October 22, 2019
"He has it all. He's fun to watch on tape, but not fun to defend."
Says pursuit of the defense will be of utmost importance with Cook's ability to both rush inside, then bounce plays to the outside with his speed.
Why do Washington Redskins fans have such disdain for Kirk Cousins? https://t.co/cxY0pMBIlf— The Redskins Wire (@TheRedskinsWire) October 22, 2019
Kirk, buddy...we need more Revenge juice. Give us what we need pic.twitter.com/WkyxvW9qtt— Patrick Claybon (@PatrickClaybon) October 22, 2019
Even with the way his time there ended, Kirk Cousins had only positive things to say about his tenure in Washington. “I’m so grateful that I was drafted by them,” Cousins said.— Chad Graff (@ChadGraff) October 22, 2019
Since Kirk Cousins was allowed to leave by the #Redskins for #Vikings - he's started 23 straight games (71 in a row overall since "15).— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) October 22, 2019
In the last 23 games, the #Skins have had SIX QB's & started five.
DURABILITY. So important. https://t.co/9DoUM5uGVC
Why aren't the Redskins shopping players as this season heads to a 2-14 finish? Because they don't have a plan. They never have and never will with Allen. Just a smug GM who claims he knows what he's going and an owner who doesn't.— Rick Snider (@Snide_Remarks) October 22, 2019
Why will #Redskins probably NOT trade away any assets prior to deadline? Because Dan and Bruce seem to believe that winning, say, five games this year would be appreciably better for them, and for fans, than only two or three. They would revel in five. My rage is a molten lava.— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) October 22, 2019
For questions on draft order here is the top 11 based on wins and current 16 game SOS— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) October 22, 2019
A lot of those teams at the top play each other.
With a matchup against the team that gave up on him looming, Kirk Cousins is playing like the QB the Vikings hoped for when they signed him. Story: https://t.co/P5w2gSFztR— Chad Graff (@ChadGraff) October 21, 2019
That's a terrific trade for the Falcons. Wonder if the Patriots had some bad injury news or something. Seems like a really high price— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) October 22, 2019
When trying to nail down your 4th straight Super Bowl experience with a 42-year old QB while facing an injury crunch, it makes sense to pay a premium in the future for some security in the present. https://t.co/gvrMBL7x0y— Mike Tanier (@MikeTanier) October 22, 2019
Here's how the Patriots receiver depth chart now looks:— Field Yates (@FieldYates) October 22, 2019
* Julian Edelman
* Mohamed Sanu
* Josh Gordon
* Phillip Dorsett
* N'Keal Harry (eligible to return in Week 9)
* Jakobi Meyers
* Gunner Olszewski
One other note on the Sanu trade: As of this morning, the Patriots had $2.532 million in cap space. Sanu's cap figure should land at around $3.7 million, so they'll have to move some money around today.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 22, 2019
Wonder if the Falcons are paying Sanu's salary. Pats dont have the cap space to fit him at the moment. That would explain getting a 2 vs a later pick— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) October 22, 2019

2019 Patriots: 223.8 yards allowed/game.

Passionate press conference from Randy Edsall today. The gist has been that today's generation of players isn't as "mentally tough" as previous generations. He mentioned phones, headphones, Fortnite, social media, more.— Alex Putterman (@AlexPutterman) October 22, 2019

First inning bugaboo strikes again for Scherzer. The “good” news is this is exactly where this team has been all year. The bad news is this ain’t the pitcher to be behind against. At all. #OnePursuit— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 23, 2019
