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.

Terry McLaurin was limited because of a hamstring issue. Don’t know yet if there’s any lingering impact.— John Keim (@john_keim) September 26, 2019
Can I say something? Yes I can. I’ve been in the league a couple years, like 6 or 7. I’ve never heard of a backup QB taking team reps during the regular season unless he’s playing. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion about everything but don’t just start making up stuff. https://t.co/ueANM3FaoH— Chris Thompson (@ChrisThompson_4) September 26, 2019
Haskins got reps with the first team today. Keenum took most of them though. They occasionally do that with their backup, but obviously the foot injury probably influenced the timing.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 26, 2019
Keenum says he hurt his foot when getting sacked against the Bears— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) September 26, 2019
Keenum says his foot was sprained in Monday’s game. They wanted to give it a little extra rest on the short week. He says he felt fine today as he returned to practice.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 26, 2019
Case Keenum is going through individual drills. So too is Colt McCoy. I don’t see any limp by Keenum. pic.twitter.com/EQvYtTU8EJ— John Keim (@john_keim) September 26, 2019
"It's easy to look at the rookie class and be like, 'Rookies are playing, why am I not playing?' I want to be like Tom Brady and Drew Brees and that's something that doesn't happen overnight. Tom didn't play at first; Aaron Rodgers didn't play at first." https://t.co/WUQE3RwVQC— John Keim (@john_keim) September 26, 2019
Who do you want to see start at QB on Sunday? #HTTR— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) September 26, 2019
Joe Thesimann on #GrantAndDanny now:— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) September 26, 2019
His best guess at the QB depth chart this weekend: Keenum, McCoy, Haskins.
"I think the best scenario for Dwayne and the franchise is not to be forced [in] this year." Said maybe play him at end of the year to feel the speed of the game.
They can cut josh Norman right now for all I care. He’s the epitome of everything wrong here. Talked about being an “all time defense” and single handedly is the weak link in the secondary every week while being paid $12 million. Then he blames the fans. #redskins— Skinsweekly (@Skinsweekly) September 26, 2019
If you’re a Redskins fan like myself thats in the age range of 15-25, you’ve really never experienced any consistent winning. Yet, we’ve all stuck around. This fanbase deserves a lot more credit. It’s not about filling up a stadium— Redskinstoday (@redskinstoday_) September 26, 2019
Not a single soul at Redskins Park should be telling fans a muthafuckin thing about supporting the team. To demonize fans for being less supportive after 20 plus years of ineptitude is asinine. Should fans continue to give unwavering support and $$$ to a below average franchise?— Tre (@Treg2Cole) September 26, 2019
Terry McLaurin is a stud. Cut up of some of his routes vs the Bears. Watch how deliberate yet smooth each step of his routes are. Angles of the routes, the particular footwork in and out of breaks. Natural at creating separation. #Redskins have a good one here pic.twitter.com/8TAEBPyj6N— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) September 26, 2019
After 3 games, the Redskins are averaging just 2.8 yards per carry. Where does the blame fall?— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) September 26, 2019
Another example here. 3rd and 1, #Redskins call a sweep play, pulling the C and RG to the edge. Just follow the blocks for a first down. Peterson cuts his run back instantly and runs into the pile, gets nothing. Next play, Keenum fumbled a QB sneak pic.twitter.com/lfu2B87HqW— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) September 26, 2019
Ereck Flowers is the only starting offensive lineman on the Skins who hasn’t surrendered either a sack or a QB hit so far this season.— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) September 26, 2019
Am I allowed to say anything yet??? Whatcha say @RobbieDuncanOL
Tim Settle had a couple nice reps against the Bears. Here’s him working against RG Kyle Long. Stays low, hands inside, can manipulate Long either way he wants to go. Squeezes gap inside to close it, forces bounce by RB. Holcomb cleans up. Nice rep #Redskins pic.twitter.com/y2YA0nUvSo— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) September 26, 2019
Was looking over Vernon Davis' career. Remember that opening leap over Eagles corner Ronald Darby? Well, it seems Davis was the 2003 D.C. schools high jump champ at 6-6. He also averaged 24.3 yards per catch as a senior at Dunbar.— Rick Snider (@Snide_Remarks) September 26, 2019

The All-22 from Monday still isn't up for me. Incredibly frustrating. @NFLGamePassHelp strikes again!— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 26, 2019
Accordingly - apologies for no tape thread this week. I'm going to watch it eventually, but there won't be as much, if any, tweeting. Sorry bout that.
Avoiding turnovers is good, but if the drive ends in a punt because you weren't aggressive enough, that's still a bad drive.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) September 26, 2019

Defenses playing highest percentage of cover-1 in the NFL:— Steve Palazzolo (@PFF_Steve) September 26, 2019

Hahahahhaahaha. AB. When are u gonna learn that it isnt about you. Never was and never will be. Got a game to get ready for. Good luck my guy!— Eric Weddle (@weddlesbeard) September 26, 2019

Cost of a holdout:— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 26, 2019
Melvin Gordon will be subject to $1.2 million worth of fines while losing out on $989,118 worth of base salary for the first three games.
Gordon still earn $4,615,882 of base salary for the rest of this season. He will be a free agent, with plans to move on.

#Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey says on his @uninterrupted 17 Weeks podcast: “I’m not sure if I’ve played my final game for the Jags yet or not but my trade request still stands. ... Once respect is lost for both parties I think it is time to part ways.” https://t.co/opJG5769PV— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 26, 2019
With the pendulum swinging to ground and pound in Minnesota, has Stefon Diggs become an underused luxury the Vikings can no longer afford? https://t.co/FWf9XdXpXE— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) September 26, 2019
I thought this, too. No way that was the call, though Kitchens will never say it https://t.co/gWicfU7NYb— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 26, 2019
My newsletter ended today. RIP. The thing I wrote in the farewell might be the last thing I ever write about D.C. sprots, or maybe not, or maybe so. That ends this Twitter update on me. How are you doing.— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) September 26, 2019

Breaking: Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will be the halftime performers for Super Bowl LIV in Miami. Other performers also expected to be added. But a Miami flavor for Miami’s next Super Bowl.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 26, 2019
