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.

Source: #Redskins DL Jonathan Allen had a second opinion on his sprained MCL today. Results were positive, avoided a scare. Timeframe still in the air, but not expected to be a long term thing.— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 10, 2019
Yep. Was told a grade 1 sprain. Feeling is could miss a week or two...Allen was telling people Monday he was OK (also what they expected him to say). https://t.co/D9Cb2Sxk5U— John Keim (@john_keim) September 10, 2019
Redskins are selling tix for Sunday’s game vs Dallas for as much as $760/ticket for club level ($190 for cheapest nosebleed seat after fees). Unlike last year, it appears to be a near sellout. Going to be biggest Cowboys invasion in history of stadium that‘s seen its fair share.— Rudy Gersten (@DCBarno) September 10, 2019
Pretty alarming quote here via my pal @BenStandig of @TheAthleticDC -— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) September 10, 2019
“Everyone in the building besides Gruden thinks AP is the better back,” a source told The Athletic.
Man.....Jay's gonna get canned just for decisions like this. https://t.co/MlZFVD0s4i?#Redskins
Marquise Brown, AJ Brown lead breakouts for NFL rookie pass-catchers in Week 1!— PFF (@PFF) September 10, 2019
: https://t.co/f9371egHCr@PFF_AustinGayle walks you through the several rookie pass-catchers who impressed in their debuts. pic.twitter.com/NUeNHP9DmN
Loved the scheme by the #Redskins on the missed shot to Terry McLaurin. Skins run a jet sweep fake, Eagles have their FS charge down to match it while the CB rotates back to fill deep. Problem is, McLaurin is far too quick on his post for the CB to have any chance of getting back pic.twitter.com/QkOvzdm6sM— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) September 10, 2019
Case Keenum has now lost three games where he had 30+ pass attempts and averaged at least 9.50 ANY/A.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) September 10, 2019
Tom Brady has lost none. Philip Rivers has lost five.https://t.co/KiTX8cj0dJ
Railing against QBWinz is a good thing, but there are lots of better examples than this.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) September 10, 2019
Best losing QB in week 1, statistically, was Case Keenum, who lost with 380 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INTs, and 1 sack https://t.co/js2GQKwNaP https://t.co/4Z2SvggFTc
This is true. last year, Redskins ran 26 times for 125 yards in two games vs. Philly. that includes AP's 90-yard TD run. In 2017, a combined 35-139.. https://t.co/tEvjrbbPdc— John Keim (@john_keim) September 10, 2019
#Redskins announce signing of Robert Davis to practice squad. Good reminder that the "you can't get this guy through waivers" arguments for WR's having a good August are almost always overstated. Everybody has their own young WR they like.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) September 10, 2019
numbers courtesy of @ESPNStatsInfo... And numbers always need context; hard to just go by those alone. Learned that long ago..But could be better with combo of Case Keenum/McLaurin. CK more aggressive looking downfield.— John Keim (@john_keim) September 10, 2019
.@DeAngeloHall23 on Josh Norman on "Hail to the Pod" w/ @ErinHawksworth :— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) September 10, 2019
"It is so frustrating. He's a much better corner than he's playing. I just want to teach him how to play bail coverage."
Breaks down what he should do & bad eyes.
Great breakdown from a Pro Bowl CB.
Ereck Flowers blocking Fletcher Cox is still the funniest shit from last game pic.twitter.com/X8XIglhFap— Mariaimdrunk (@PeckinsMatt) September 9, 2019
Couple of nice plays here from #Redskins LB Cole Holcomb. He finished with 7 total defensive stops which was tied for the most among ALL defenders in week 1, per @PFF. Pretty solid start for a rookie drafted in the fifth round. #HTTR pic.twitter.com/ZzyEPgNawh— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) September 10, 2019
For those critical of Thompson here, read the text of the tweet. The play is designed to go outside, he’s on a track out there and has particular designed reads. It’s the design of the play that takes him there, so he’s not looking for that lane.— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) September 10, 2019
Had to go back and study elite RG Brandon Scherff week 1, especially vs. fellow elite opponent Fletcher Cox.— Brandon Thorn (@BrandonThornNFL) September 10, 2019
Scherff's vintage 'flash' or 'bait' technique in pass pro mixed in with jump sets + very few guards work combos or get out in space better as a run-blocker. pic.twitter.com/gcaSerNSyr
Watching the all-22 of the game right now and making the cut ups. The running game SHOULD have been better than what happened on Sunday. Execution was poor. Either a block away or RB vision is proving to be the culprit, imo.— Robbie Duncan (@RobbieDuncanOL) September 10, 2019
Brandon Scherff needs to be paid. Don't wait. Just pay him. https://t.co/ISVjNoYOkl— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) September 10, 2019
Can confirm the Derrius Guice injury is to the meniscus. Timeline is still up in the air. One belief is could be back by next Monday if things go well. Another source says could be up to four weeks. #Redskins— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 10, 2019
#Redskins also added DL T.Y. McGill— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 10, 2019
Source says Caleb Brantley (foot) was in a boot yesterday. Could be precautionary but clearly not a great sign. Couldn’t finish the game against Philly. https://t.co/1QsUlwpr44
#TapeTuesday is back!— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 10, 2019
For the new folks, every Tuesday I go through the #Redskins All-22 film. I'll tweet observations. If I'm definitive, it's because I asked. Most often it's "this or this happened" or pointing out interesting things.
There are gif's sometimes. Here we go!
Just finished writing a piece that will be out later today/tomorrow on how Penn and Flowers held up against the Eagles. But wanted to tweet out this clip of Flowers looking for work and helping out Penn, because who doesn't like seeing an OL flooring a DL? pic.twitter.com/jWwzcyNxHs— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) September 10, 2019
It’s cracks me up when fans tell other fans they aren’t “real fans”. So what do you think there’s a conspiracy to secretly root for a perennial joke of a franchise for 25 years without anyone knowing you actually root for a winner? If you claim the #redskins we’re family.— Skinsweekly (@Skinsweekly) September 10, 2019
The Redskins waived corner Greg Stroman with an injury designation and signed corner Simeon Thomas off Seattle's practice squad, per the NFL transaction wire. They also waived tight end J.P. Holtz. Stroman was a reserve who could play inside or outside... https://t.co/eoB1xXjETZ— John Keim (@john_keim) September 10, 2019
I definitely did a double take earlier today when seeing how many touchdowns Kapri Bibbs had last year https://t.co/jK0dn0BxNm— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) September 11, 2019
Brown's lawyer gives his side. Some of this is irrelevant. Obviously the assertion that the acts were consensual is the most important thing. That is really all that matters. https://t.co/6QfPxyaSUD— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 11, 2019

#Eagles DT Malik Jackson is expected to miss the season with a Lisfranc injury suffered Sunday vs. the #Redskins, sources tell me and @RapSheet. Jackson will have surgery next week. Tough one for Philly despite their DL depth.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) September 10, 2019
Demaryius Thomas from the Pats to the Jets for a sixth-round pick, as @AdamSchefter said. Thomas and Adam Gase back together.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) September 10, 2019
I mean the Jets are getting the Patriots off the hook for a guy whose salary was effectively guaranteed and probably had no role and was a potential cut and gave up a 6th to do it— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) September 10, 2019
Jaguars trading a 2020 5th-round pick to Pittsburgh for QB Josh Dobbs, per sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 9, 2019

The legendary coach died seven days earlier.
The Vikings ran 49 plays on Sunday, and 38 of them were runs! This was one of the most run heavy games in modern history, and remarkable given that it took place in a dome https://t.co/eiFOazb0my pic.twitter.com/odQKAzyoiI— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) September 10, 2019

If anyone wants to know what it feels like to fall on that dirt in Oakland Coliseum: Go outside right now, sprint as fast as you can in the middle of the street, once you get to full speed jump up as high as you can and belly flop on the pavement. #Facts— Justin Forsett (@JForsett) September 10, 2019
Joe Flacco may be losing 14-0, but he still is tall and still has a strong arm.— Warren Sharp (@SharpFootball) September 10, 2019
At the end of the day, that's what really matters for a John Elway QB.
Russell Wilson won a Super Bowl in year two.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) September 10, 2019
Pat Mahomes won MVP in year two.
Carson Wentz was an MVP front runner in year two before tearing his ACL.
Deshaun Watson dragged his team from 0-3 to a division title in year two.
The "year two" excuse for QBs doesn't work anymore. https://t.co/PEzdzReXkH
