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.

The Redskins are promoting Cam Sims off the PS, per source. Callahan had mentioned Thursday wanting to see more of him. Now he'll get his chance.— John Keim (@john_keim) November 16, 2019

My understanding is that Vallejo was their highest-rated ST performer. Was good in that role. Redskins needed WR help with Paul Richardson out. Enter Sims.— John Keim (@john_keim) November 16, 2019
WaPo with more information on the Nicholson case late last night.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) November 16, 2019
The woman was someone he had been dating for 6 months. Her father spoke for the first time. https://t.co/PxUQZpVcy7
ICYMI: Redskins rule out Paul Richardson, Chris Thompson, Vernon Davis and Tim Settle for Sunday. Montae Nicholson questionable. pic.twitter.com/QpSow8Oo6Q— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) November 16, 2019
Is tomorrow the dawning of a new era at FedExField? Any chance that the combination of Dwayne Haskins, Derrius Guice & Terry McLaurin together could turn out to be a version of the famed "triplets" of the #Cowboys (Aikman, Emmitt, Irvin)?— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) November 16, 2019
No chance because they're #Redskins?
Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa carted off. Not great.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) November 16, 2019
Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa was carted off the field today in what colleague @MollyAMcGrath described as a hip issue that had him “screaming in pain.”— Field Yates (@FieldYates) November 16, 2019
Hearing Tua Tagovailoa’s hip injury is serious. Hip fracture. Similar to Bo Jackson’s career-ending injury. Surgery tonight or tomorrow morning. Praying for Tua and his family.— Jim Nagy (@JimNagy_SB) November 16, 2019
Tua Tagovailoa’s season is over. This sucks. From Bama pic.twitter.com/y1Xx3H8Vtq— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 17, 2019
Tua Tagovailoa injury similar to Bo Jackson injury. Hip subluxation/dislocation puts femoral head at risk of loosing blood supply and dying. Need to get hip back in place gently ASAP and remove pressure from joint.— Dr. Mark Adickes (@jocktodoc) November 16, 2019
Here's what happened to Tua, got injured, carted off.pic.twitter.com/wH2LpQ0crB— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) November 16, 2019
As Tua is carted off the field remember he has no pension, retirement, etc.— Rex Chapman (@RexChapman) November 16, 2019
Dolphins fans, on a scale of one to "oh shit" how concerned are you about Tua's apparent injury prone-ness.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) November 16, 2019
Would this make you consider someone else with a top two pick, assuming you get one?
Does Joe Burrow have the arm talent to make field side throws outside the number?— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) November 17, 2019
Don’t get mad at the messenger. I’m just giving you a heads-up on what the primary discussion point will be abt Burrow once we hit draft season. It’s a question NFL teams are currently asking
Thought it was pretty amazing that Hurts took that hit, and maintained the presence of mind to recover his own fumble. That right there is mental AND physical toughness. https://t.co/zJybOZD0OQ— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) November 17, 2019
Who is on the rise??— PFF (@PFF) November 16, 2019
Here's the 2020 NFL Draft scouting notes from CFB Week 11 https://t.co/xF6fSfmKE8
And now Alabama DL Raekwon Davis is being helped off the field with what looked like a bad ankle injury. He’s another potential first-rounder.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) November 16, 2019
Catastrophic afternoon in Starkville.
Reading more and more articles on CBA talks. Sounds like the 17 game thing is going to be a main thing the league insists on. Not much though on what the players are getting yet in return— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) November 16, 2019
IMO the most important thing for players is to get the 4 and 5 year rookie deals moved way down to get players into veteran contracts earlier— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) November 16, 2019
It did screw over about 10 players a year (5 who deserved the added money for rookie performance) but it bumped a lot of vets out and changed the complexion of many teams— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) November 16, 2019
NFL teams are one for 29 in recovering onside kicks this season, and the league and rule-makers intend to revisit the Broncos' failed fourth-and-15 proposal this offseason.... https://t.co/pYQ1qeSmPi— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) November 16, 2019
Doing some research and stumbled across some interesting numbers...— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 16, 2019
Lamar Jackson has been MVP-good this season. His season is statistically comparable to the one that...Tyrod Taylor had in 2015-16 for Buffalo. Could bode well for Taylor’s future in LA or somewhere else. pic.twitter.com/VIoiqvu4Vo
If you absolutely don't want to lose yards, passing is better than rushing, because about 12% of rushing plays lose yards and 10% of passing plays lose yards.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) November 16, 2019
But otherwise, running is safer than passing: 79% of rushing plays gain yards, compared to about 57% of passing plays.
How much is passing efficiency driven by big plays? If you removed the top 11% of pass plays and the top 11% of rushing plays, then passing and running are equally efficient! https://t.co/AD81M3tJ28— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) November 16, 2019
2000 had Culpepper, Gannon, McNair, Blake, Fiedler, Rob Johnson, Kordell, King, McNabb, McNown, and Akili Smith.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) November 16, 2019
1972 had Landry, Phipps, Bradshaw, Manning, Douglass, Pastorini, and Plunkett.
NFL declined to allow media and cameras into Colin Kaepernick’s workout as he had requested for transparency, per source. Workout now will be moved to alternative location in Atlanta this afternoon that will be open to the media and all NFL representative as allowed under rules.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 16, 2019
Kap moves the location to a place a hour away so HuE got back on a plane and left I guess lol— Nathan (@TheNathanKropp) November 16, 2019
Hue Jackson's workout script was to bench Kaepernick in favor of Cody Kessler, then blame it on Todd Haley.— Mike Tanier (@MikeTanier) November 16, 2019
He doesn't want to play. pic.twitter.com/ZuSI1IVW9r— Stephen A Smith (@stephenasmith) November 17, 2019
Spoke with teams that had people at Kap workout. What I got back ...— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) November 17, 2019
• 60 scripted throws.
• No running/agility work.
• Arm strength is there.
• In good shape.
• Had some accuracy issues.
• Same tight, mechanical delivery.
Basically showed he's the same guy he was.
NFL says it is "disappointed" Colin Kaepernick "did not appear" https://t.co/mUpZr6hdHm— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) November 16, 2019

As reported, the #Redskins were one of the teams that did attend Kaepernick’s workout after the move. The scout that attended was Asst. Director of Pro Personnel Richard Mann.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) November 17, 2019
Kaepernick thanks scouts from Washington, New York Jets and Kansas City and says: “When you go back, tell your owners to stop being scared.” pic.twitter.com/UMLSrIcn09— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) November 16, 2019
The “We’re” ready to go has to concern teams. Who is coming with him? https://t.co/2ZTJFzaA3y— Michael Lombardi (@mlombardiNFL) November 16, 2019
Imma be real.— Will Blackmon (@WillBlackmon) November 17, 2019
Old school Kap looks like he been working out at 4am, 5 days a week for 3 years straight.
Not the one we saw in Atlanta. pic.twitter.com/TJ7mZxC8dW
What UGA is doing to Auburn right now is equally as impressive as what LSU did to Alabama last week.— Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsESPN) November 16, 2019
BIG BOY football on the road.
My goodness, Dawgs vs Tigers in Atlanta is shaping up to be epic.
JMU secured a fourth-straight victory over Richmond Saturday to grab its third outright CAA title in four years. The Dukes have qualified for the FCS playoffs six straight years.— Wayne Epps Jr. (@wayneeppsjr) November 17, 2019

Capitals lost to an Eastern conference team tonight. Last time that happened? Jay Gruden was still head coach of the Skins, the Washington Mystics had never won a WNBA title & the city of DC was looking for its first MLB World Series title since 1924 @bmcnally14 @TomSportsWUSA9— T M (@reshmanuel) November 16, 2019
