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.

Ryan Kerrigan is going on IR. Callahan says it’s in the best interest of his health. “He’s the consummate professional.”— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 13, 2019
Amazing to think this is the first time in his career, but the guy didn’t miss a game until two weeks ago.
Since Bill Callahan took over, the Redskins rank 10th in the NFL in rushing -- but 30th in time of possession. Why? because they're 30th on third down (28.9 percent). They have had 90 third downs under Callahan; 43 have been 3&7 or longer. not ideal for rookie QB @ESPNStatsInfo— John Keim (@john_keim) December 13, 2019
In the first five games the Redskins ranked second in total penalties with 57. In the last eight games, they only have 56 (5th fewest).— John Keim (@john_keim) December 13, 2019
#Redskins Friday practice:— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 13, 2019
Josh Norman (sick) is back. Quinton Dunbar (hamstring) is not here. Trey Quinn (concussion) and Paul Richardson (hamstring) are also absent. Penn (knee/back) is back after a DNP yesterday. Peterson (rest) also back.
Super excited for the “Mr. Irrelevant” formation on Sunday when Wilson sets a block for Quinn. https://t.co/fyQEwqYDrB— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) December 13, 2019
Don't forget, the more you pass, and the deeper the passes are, the longer your usually asking your O-line to protect. Our OT's are not very good. Plus, we have no TE's, and are starting 3 rookie WR's again.— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) December 13, 2019
Look, I'm all for it, but I don't expect it to happen.

I'm sorry, but that's weak nonsense from Trent Williams here after his dogs "tore apart" a neighbour's puppy. https://t.co/SD9yR53WXq
For those that interpret this as much just blaming Cousins, that’s not my intention here. My point was more that Doctson needed a very specific situation to succeed. When the Skins cut him, these were the notes I took about lessons to be learned from it pic.twitter.com/8UbXgpHPXr— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) December 13, 2019
BRUH WHO RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS? pic.twitter.com/hy4gu6DOPw— str3tch ♂️ (@PAYNE_21) December 13, 2019
In his ranking of the 9 coaching jobs that will be/could be open this offseason (https://t.co/e6tgMQlMDY), @billbarnwell ranked the #Redskins last. How's this for a paragraph? pic.twitter.com/CRc8VXRrPx— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) December 12, 2019
Double team rate as a defensive tackle (x) by pass rush win rate as a defensive tackle (y).— Seth Walder (@SethWalder) December 12, 2019
PRWR = rate pass rusher beats blocker in 2.5 seconds.

2) Let's include rushing TDs with passing TDs, because duh. Lamar Jackson leads the NFL in passing TD%, but he also leads the NFL in total TD%. Joe Flacco has the worst. I'd say Baltimore made the right decision. https://t.co/jzERhCdNmf pic.twitter.com/DmELWGj03s— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) December 13, 2019
4) Finally, completion %, which is a dumb stat. But if we want to value not throwing incomplete passes and consistency, including rushing paints a better picture of that. Crediting each rush attempt as a completion gives Jackson the best adj comp% in NFL. https://t.co/jzERhCdNmf pic.twitter.com/S6yfOtzast— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) December 13, 2019
6) But Lamar Jackson's passer rating barely falls, because traditional passer rating undersells how good he's been as a QB, not just as a passer.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) December 13, 2019
Here are the top 10 QBs in adjusted passer rating. https://t.co/jzERhCdNmf pic.twitter.com/JeeKDscnpv
And here are the bottom 10 QBs in adjusted passer rating. Kyle Allen takes a ton of sacks. Daniel Jones has a ton of fumbles. Flacco was just bad. Mayfield actually has the lowest unadjusted passer rating in the NFL, which is nuts. He's 4th from last here. https://t.co/jzERhCdNmf pic.twitter.com/b5dBvkV9eF— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) December 13, 2019
Baker Mayfield currently ranks last in passer rating. If he finishes the season that way, he'd become the third Browns QB to do so in the last 12 years, joining DeShone Kizer (2017) and Derek Anderson (2008). https://t.co/Vuimkh8mTg— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) December 13, 2019
Should Lamar Jackson win the MVP, he would become the 9th player to win both the Heisman and MVP, Frank Sinkwich, Paul Hornung, Roger Staubach, OJ Simpson, Earl Campbell, Marcus Allen, Barry Sanders, and Cam Newton— trey wingo (@wingoz) December 13, 2019
breaks the QB rushing record on a night he had 5 passing touchdowns— charles (ronald) mcdonald (@FourVerts) December 13, 2019
i know the jets are extremely banged up on defense, but man. just an incredible season.

The #Giants make it official, saying that Eli Manning will start again this week. He gets a (potentially) final home game.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 13, 2019
The #Giants have officially moved on, waiving/injured CB Janoris Jenkins. He called a fan on Twitter a slur, then refused to apologize for it.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 13, 2019
Giants’ HC Pat Shurmur on the release of CB Janoris Jenkins: “Obviously, what happened this week, and the refusal to acknowledge the inappropriate and offensive language, was the determining factor.”— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 13, 2019
#NYGiants TE Evan Engram no longer expected to play Sunday against Dolphins, per source. Has been practicing as limited participant + all were hoping he could do more, but sprained foot is just not coming along fast enough to return yet. Zero sense to rush + risk further injury.— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) December 13, 2019
#AZCardinals pass-rusher Terrell Suggs was released, coach Kliff Kingsbury announced. An intriguing waiver pickup this week.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 13, 2019
- Racked up 33 total pressures this year (tied for 46th most among edge defenders)— PFF (@PFF) December 13, 2019
- Missed 10 tackles (tied for 2nd most among edge defenders)
People always ask how long it takes to write a draft profile. I read articles, check data & then go to the tape. In this case, I’m watching Utah St. QB Jordan Love who killed it last yr but really struggled this yr so I’m watching last 2 years. 1.5 hrs in & way more to go #notes pic.twitter.com/nLWtrwZhTw— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) December 13, 2019
Bittersweet goodbye: After 3 incredible years in DC, it’s time to move on. My last official day will be Sunday’s Redskins game. I can’t thank everyone enough for making DC feel like home. I’ve loved every minute of it & will look back fondly on all the amazing memories made here! pic.twitter.com/aJ6Y0EPYfB— Sherree Burruss (@SherreeBurruss) December 13, 2019
