The Redskins got blown out on national tv on Monday night, losing to the Chicago Bears 31-15. That dropped them to 0-3 for the season, and now they face the Giants in New Jersey and try to avoid 3 division losses within the first month. There is a lot riding on this game for the Redskins, and their coaching staff. Head Coach Jay Gruden and Defensive Coordinator Greg Manusky’s jobs are reportedly on the line this week, and a loss could mean one or both of them are fired on Monday.
The Redskins continue to deal with injuries this week. Chase Roullier(knee) joins Jordan Reed(concussion) this week on the inactive list. Brandon Scherff is dealing with an ankle injury from Monday’s game, and he is questionable this week. Tony Bergstrom will start at center, and Wes Martin will be active for the first time and get his first start at right guard. The Redskins other rookie offensive linemen, Ross Pierschbacher would also be active if Scherff can’t go. Terry McLaurin had a minor hamstring pull on Thursday. He’s listed as questionable, but reportedly should be able to play against the Giants.
