Gruden to the podium:— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 12, 2019
Confirms Guice had a small procedure today on his knee. He doesn’t know details of return yet. They haven’t decided on IR.
Dunbar missed practice with knee soreness. They anticipate him being fine for the weekend.
Gruden at the podium. Confirms Derrius Guice had surgery, adds team hasn’t made a decision on IR. He calls it a “small procedure.”— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) September 12, 2019
Here's Adrian Peterson on the "roller coaster" ride over the last week. pic.twitter.com/c9m3OIcFzv— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 12, 2019
Don’t feel bad for me!! This what I signed up! It wear and tears on your body over time! I’ve been doing this 15 years!! Trust the process.. head up chin up and grind— 2️⃣9️⃣ (@DhaSickest) September 12, 2019
Smallwood would be a 1-2 down back. A role he had in Philly last year as a backup. If not keeping 4 to keep AP active not sure why they’d do it for Reynolds. With AP last year only 3 active. https://t.co/4keFxCmfdR— John Keim (@john_keim) September 12, 2019
Redskins owner Dan Snyder is sending his plane to the Bahamas filled with supplies. https://t.co/UyRDaRi34a— NBCWashington (@nbcwashington) September 12, 2019
Adrian Peterson doesn't believe his increase in playing time will bring Trent Williams back. https://t.co/wXtpLHUZ4K— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) September 12, 2019
The most pass happy teams in week 1 were the Redskins and Bengals, which is pretty weird.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) September 12, 2019
The most run heavy teams were Indianapolis and Minnesota, which is less surprising https://t.co/VYrYsEfyBX
The San Francisco 49ers have 14 players weighing less than 200 pounds, the most in that category. Tennessee has the most players under six-feet tall with 14, while Kansas City and Washington each have 14 players weighing over 300 pounds, the most in the league. pic.twitter.com/Vz6KgpQcQC— Dan Shonka (@Ourlads_Shonka) September 12, 2019
Julie showed AP this picture for yucks. Adrian said he has no clue where Trent's going. After taking a long look he broke out a spontaneous," I miss my dawg." https://t.co/QrDWLdG8RR— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 12, 2019
After listening to Gruden address the various injuries I'd be surprised if someone doesn't land on IR before Sunday just to create roster space.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 12, 2019
In the secondary alone Moreau, Dunbar, Nicholson iffy for Sunday. Plus McCoy. Reed limited work today. Guice knee procedure today.
Corner Quinton Dunbar did not practice because of a sore knee. Cornwr Fabian Moreau was limited with his ankle injury tho he did more than Wed. Gruden called Friday a “big day” to know more about the injuries.— John Keim (@john_keim) September 12, 2019
On standout rookie corner Jimmy Moreland, Gruden anticipated him working predominantly at nickel covering the slot. Heading into Week 2, Gruden says Moreland may also get work outside the hashes.#WASvsDAL— Ryan Fowler (@FowlerRyan1) September 12, 2019
Gruden says the Cowboys defense plays with their “hair on fire.” Says they “hang their hat” on their speed and tenacity.— Ryan Fowler (@FowlerRyan1) September 12, 2019
To counter that he highlighted the weapons within the #Redskins offense, saying Trey Quinn is looking to “make a splash”, as other guys look to also step up.
Great Gruden quote on McLaurin:— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 12, 2019
“If we were smart, we would’ve drafted him in the first round.”
Terry McLaurin just has that speed. Rasual Douglas doesn't. Too much space to work with. Douglas acted like he had safety help, or he overestimated his own speed. McLaurin was a steal! pic.twitter.com/5UjobZtyuX— Ian Wharton (@NFLFilmStudy) September 12, 2019
As we await a Week 2 update on Jordan Reed, Redskins expected to sign TE Donald Parham to the practice squad, per source.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 12, 2019
Had the 6-foot-8 UDFA on the summer roster until final cuts.
Move comes day after Washington lost TE J.P. Holtz. Claimed off waivers by Bears.
The #Redskins have signed TE Donald Parham Jr. to their practice squad.— Washington Redskins (@Redskins) September 12, 2019
Moore didn’t just rely on shifts & motions for his offense. He also called a heavy dose of RPOs, some we’ve seen before, some new, like this one. TE works the flat to occupy flat defender, create space for the WR spotting up.— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) September 12, 2019

Kellen Moore is the NFL's next bright offensive mind and is taking the Cowboys to new heights https://t.co/jddCUKuQCO— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) September 12, 2019
Dak Prescott said he's done talking Cowboys extension, "it will get done in due time."— Jori Epstein (@JoriEpstein) September 12, 2019
So what did Jerry Jones mean when he called contract 'imminent'?
Dak: "You tell me. Ask him. I didn't say it."
Former first-round pick Taco Charlton can't find the field with Cowboys https://t.co/45nO4DdH6U— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) September 12, 2019
Injured reserve means a minimum of eight games, so that means he won’t play vs. Redskins in October https://t.co/LHB9Ji5Yji— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) September 12, 2019
Breaking: Browns DE Chris Smith’s Lamborghini crashed on 90W this morning, after he reported a tire blew. Police say Smith and his girlfriend, Petara Cordero, were standing in the berm when another car hit and killed Cordero.— Matt Wright Fox 8 (@mattwrighttv) September 11, 2019

We're like 10 days in and this is my favorite NFL season ever. https://t.co/f5gW9b9dDK— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) September 12, 2019
Patriots face the tanking Dolphins this week, Darnold-less Jets at home, then at Buffalo, at Washington, vs. Giants (TNF), at Jets. Might be the softest opening schedule in the NFL— Ben Volin (@BenVolin) September 12, 2019
Trevor Siemien is going to throw 20 passes to Jamison Crowder, who will catch 15 of them for 75 yards.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) September 12, 2019

There were 3 teams who had a 120-yard rusher in week one. Those teams went 0-3.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) September 12, 2019
If you are in a survivor pool, you probably noticed that almost nobody was eliminated in week one.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) September 12, 2019
That's because in week 1, the winning team had a pre-game win probability of 57%. That's the 3rd highest of any week 1 since 2002. https://t.co/NSGAN2rcJm pic.twitter.com/JAfh0HvOFx
Odell Beckham, Jr. said dirty hit coached by Gregg Williams led to subsequent injuries he suffered: “Nobody in the NFL is really out to do stuff like that. ...you just know who he is.” #browns #jets pic.twitter.com/1XtUvFIp2f— Kimberley A. Martin (@ByKimberleyA) September 12, 2019
How has OBJ's watch gone from $350K to $250K to $190K in these stories? Is this like when you drive a car off the lot?— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) September 12, 2019
A fourth-grade boy was bullied at school for wearing a homemade Tennessee Volunteers shirt. After hearing about that, Tennessee has offered him a scholarship for the class of 2032. Absolutely awesome. https://t.co/k91zvb6Edl— Field Yates (@FieldYates) September 12, 2019

I'm sorry but "I'm married to my husband" isn't the answer the judges were looking for. Your cousin can't get with you because LADY HE'S YOUR FUCKIN' COUSIN.— Mike Dorsey (@DorseyFilm) September 11, 2019
