Start Dwayne Haskins Week 1? #Redskins
Jay Gruden has been consistent on the Dwyane Haskins issue. I've heard him say, "he has to be able to protect himself", meaning he has to be able to recognize blitzes, slide protections, change snap counts, etc. #Redskins #HTTR #skins— Disco (@discoque5) August 19, 2019
This is the 3rd unofficial depth chart— Scott Jennings (@ScottJenningsHH) August 19, 2019
With Colt McCoy potentially unavailable for Week-1, there's a good chance we could see Dwayne Haskins sooner than we're anticipating. He may be one play away from the field on the season-opening drive if McCoy can't go. Crazy how plans go out window.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) August 18, 2019
Blake Hance shoutout. Moving really well in space leading the charge on this screen. In a perfect world you'd like to see him finish the block but it's still a nice rep. Think Hance is a perfect candidate for the practice squad. pic.twitter.com/CinDd3aROB— Robbie Duncan (@RobbieDuncanOL) August 18, 2019
I think a lot of people are sleeping on @prichiejr , @Redskins fans included. Yes, thus far he has NOT lived up to his $8M/yr contract, BUT the man played the whole year with a SEVERELY injured shoulder & still made plays. He’s my breakout candidate for this year. #HTTR— Chris Flippen (@skipjackson30) August 18, 2019
Not how I view it. From what I've seen these past 2 games, Martin is capable. It's more Flowers playing good enough to not warrant losing the starting spot. https://t.co/IhKFfZtEfe— Robbie Duncan (@RobbieDuncanOL) August 18, 2019
Settle and Brantley were on the side. Moses was dressed. https://t.co/q4BngUaRzv— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 18, 2019
And then it was Peterson’s turn. Two weeks ago in camp was chastised for not using his arms right. Was better today. pic.twitter.com/Ao46uDQFgt— John Keim (@john_keim) August 19, 2019

When asked if he’s talked to Trent, Gruden said “maybe”. Only wants to talk about people that are here.— George Wallace (@GWallaceWTOP) August 19, 2019
Terry McLaurin (tailbone) has been a full participant in the team’s practices this week. Waiting to see if he’ll get substantial playing time in Thursday’s game #HTTR— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) August 19, 2019
Paul Richardson is back in uniform. Was dealing with a quad issue. Not sure how much he’ll do. pic.twitter.com/9OHVal9L5J— John Keim (@john_keim) August 19, 2019
Gruden to the podium:— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 19, 2019
He says Richardson is still up in the air for Thursday. Guice is still being taken day by day. Awaiting the final green light for games.
Jay Gruden said RB Derrius Guice still hasn’t been cleared for full contact but he said he should be OK soon. “Just waiting for the green light,” Gruden said.— John Keim (@john_keim) August 19, 2019
Note after a day at the #Redskins: The tentative plan is for RB Derrius Guice (knee surgeries) to get some work in the preseason game vs the #Falcons, I’m told. It’ll likely be his only action of the preseason but getting some contact before the regular season would be important.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 19, 2019
Doug Williams And Dan Snyder headed to practice. pic.twitter.com/PlWX9sbJgc— John Keim (@john_keim) August 19, 2019
Defensive #redskins not practicing: Moreau, Brantley, Brailford, Settle— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) August 19, 2019
Looked up IR/PUP #'s for #Redskins since 2010 because of latest setback for Colt McCoy.— Russell Shavatt (@RShavatt21) August 19, 2019
Per Pro Football Reference,
Gruden: 88 players in 5 seasons
Shanahan: 44 players in 4 seasons
Don't know what it means, but numbers are staggering nonetheless.

Is this Redskins defense a top-5 caliber unit?— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) August 19, 2019
Ha. The Redskins practice in the rain too. Believe me; I've been saturated on those sidelines way too often sitting in the rain watching practice.— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) August 20, 2019
Only time they cancel is if there's lightning in the area.
The saddest aspect of all this is that this team is on the cusp of turning around 20 years of mostly misery. I want Williams to see it through and be a part of it. https://t.co/0wap9cl6CM— BGObsession.com (@BGObsession) August 19, 2019

In 2018, @NFL teams with a 100-yard rusher posted an 80-26-1 record for a .749 winning percentage.— NFL Football Operations (@NFLFootballOps) August 19, 2019
That rated higher than clubs with a 100-yard receiver or a 300-yard passer.

Asked if he’s talked to Trent Williams, Gruden said “maybe”. He said he just wants to talk about the people who are here.— John Keim (@john_keim) August 19, 2019
I'd be impressed if Jay Gruden were somehow able to get Trent Williams to return to the #Redskins.— Disco (@discoque5) August 19, 2019

Source: #Raiders WR Antonio Briwn has filed another grievance against the NFL, arguing that he should be afforded the same right provided to other NFL players to have a 1-year grace period to phase out his helmet in 2019 season. He claims the NFL is arbitrarily applying rules.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 20, 2019

Closest I can even think of was Haynesworth in his split with Washington where he basically refused to play, but that was more like Brown with the Steelers at the end. This is pretty out there.— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) August 19, 2019
Contracts generally have outs in the event a player is suspended, refuses to report, leaves the team, etc...My assumption is eventually they would find a way to void it and move on penalty free— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) August 19, 2019
Its not even a signing bonus. They guaranteed workout bonuses so $500,000 of that is for 2020— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) August 19, 2019
There are nearly 2,900 players on the combined 32 @NFL rosters right now. Only one player is refusing to participate because he doesn’t like his helmet.— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) August 19, 2019

49ers LT Joe Staley had worn the same helmet as AB since 2003, with a very short unsuccessful switch in 2012, and said he loved the helmet and to a degree understands why AB doesn’t want to switch. Staley wasnt happy, but understood and did switch to another helmet. pic.twitter.com/J2c9N2cmPA— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) August 20, 2019
Adam Gase says that he regrets keeping LB Avery Williamson in the game longer than the rest of the Jets starters in their 2nd preseason game in Atlanta.— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) August 19, 2019
Williamson suffered a torn ACL last in the first half.
#Vikings cornerback Holton Hill has been ejected after hitting Seahawks QB Paxton Lynch in the head on a scramble. Crowd applauds as Lynch gets up and walks off under his own power. Bad penalty by a player already needing to earn credibility.— Andrew Krammer (@Andrew_Krammer) August 19, 2019

Huge huge huge Mahalo to the people of Hawaii for hosting one of the best preseasons game I’ve ever been a part of. The fans were in it the whole game and gave us some great juice. I would love to see more NFL action on the islands. #AlohaRams— Johnny Hekker (@JHekker) August 18, 2019
To be clear, that wasn’t a direct answer to my question. Point is, they’re optimistic, but they’ll know more after surgery.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 19, 2019

Every sports team should note how @usabasketball handles the media. They put 30 mins on the clock, and made everyone - coaches and players - available. We could gather in a scrum, or grab guys for one-on-ones. We’re all adults. We get the story; they get exposure. Much respect.— Olgun Uluc (@OlgunUluc) August 19, 2019
