 Latest Redskins Player Notes
Jan 20 2018 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins isn't though of as a special player by former Washington Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan. McCloughan told Denver radio station 104.3 The Fan that the Redskins should be cautious in dealing with the soon-to-be free agent quarterback. "He's a good player," McCloughan said on Friday, via the Washington Post. "Is he special? I don't see special. But also, we were still building a roster around him to make him special."


Jan 3 2018 - Jamison Crowder
  WR Jamison Crowder (66 catches, 789 yards, three touchdowns) was again one of the NFL's most productive slot receivers.


Jan 3 2018 - Josh Doctson
  WR Josh Doctson (35 catches, 508 yards) showed signs of progress. He had six touchdowns and averaged 14.3 yards per catch, but had some key drops.


Jan 3 2018 - Vernon Davis
  TE Vernon Davis had his best season since 2013 (69 catches, 648 yards, three touchdowns), but faded toward the end of the season.


Jan 3 2018 - Chris Thompson
  RB Chris Thompson became a force and led Washington in rushing yards (294) and receiving yards (510) before he broke his leg in Week 11. Thompson produced 804 yards of offense in 10 games with six touchdowns.


Jan 3 2018 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins wasn't quite as sharp as he was in 2015 or 2016, although the drop off wasn't steep. He had 27 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions. The passing yards (4,093) were down and so was the completion percentage (64.3 percent). Cousins paid the price for an injury-ravaged offensive line as sacks jumped from 23 to 41. For the third offseason in a row the Redskins will have to use the franchise tag ($34.4 million), transition tag ($28.7 million) or sign Cousins to a long-term contract.


Jan 1 2018 - Anthony Lanier
  DE Anthony Lanier's extra-point block on Sunday against the Giants was Washington's first since 2007.

  QB Kirk Cousins became the first Redskins quarterback to start every game for three consecutive years in a 16-game schedule.

Jan 1 2018 - Samaje Perine
  RB Samaje Perine sustained an ankle injury in the first quarter and did not return.


Jan 1 2018 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins, scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent absent a new long-term deal, said he isn't too concerned right now with what the future might hold because he knows there will be opportunities to meet with Redskins management about his future. "I appreciate the question. I understand the question, but I'm not in a position to give you an answer," he said after the season finale. "I need to catch my breath." Cousins was 20 of 37 for 158 yards with no touchdowns and three interceptions Sunday in a loss to the Giants.


Dec 27 2017 - Bashaud Breeland

  S D.J. Swearinger set a season best with his fourth interception in Sunday's win over the Denver Broncos. He became the second Redskins player with four picks. That hadn't happened since 2012.

  K Dustin Hopkins made both field-goal attempts and all three extra points against Denver.


Dec 26 2017 - Samaje Perine
  RB Samaje Perine (17 carries, 53 yards) had a nice game despite a groin injury against one of the NFL's best defenses, but he did lose a fumble.


Dec 26 2017 - Ryan Grant
  WR Ryan Grant had four receptions for 85 yards against Denver.


Dec 26 2017 - Ryan Kerrigan

  DE Ziggy Hood (fractured elbow) is done for the season after getting hurt against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.


Dec 26 2017 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins' status this offseason isn't clear right now. He might not be back. But one thing is clear: He will start and play on Sunday against the New York Giants. "Kirk wants to finish out the season and (he's) got to get us back to 8-8 and I think finishing on a three-game win streak is important to a lot of people here," head coach Jay Gruden said. "Finishing strong is what we've been preaching here the last two-three weeks and that'll be the case again this week against the Giants. He'll play."


Dec 26 2017 - Josh Doctson
  WR Josh Doctson dropped what appeared to be an easy touchdown catch in the first half of Sunday's 27-11 win over the Broncos. It was a microcosm of his day. Doctson was targeted 13 times by quarterback Kirk Cousins, but caught only two passes. However, one of them went for 48 yards.


Dec 26 2017 - Ziggy Hood
  NT Ziggy Hood will miss the team's season finale against the New York Giants with a fractured elbow, Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden announced Tuesday. Hood sustained the injury during the first half of Sunday's 27-11 victory over the Denver Broncos. The 30-year-old Hood has recorded 25 tackles and 0.5 sacks in 15 games this season. Hood has 222 tackles and 14.0 sacks in 127 career contests with the Steelers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Redskins since being selected by Pittsburgh with the 32nd overall pick of the 2009 draft.


Dec 24 2017 - Ryan Kerrigan

Dec 24 2017 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins will be a free agent after the season unless Washington elects to place the franchise tag on him for the third time or signs him to a long-term contract. He completed 19 of 37 passes for 299 yards against Denver, the NFL's top-ranked defense in terms of yardage allowed. He was intercepted once. "You know, it was an imperfect game but when you have your defense playing at such a high level -- it kept us in the game and kept giving us a chance," said Cousins, whose day began with two three-and-outs. "Then, we finally got rolling and made enough plays to pull away." With his second-quarter touchdown pass, Cousins became the first Washington quarterback to record three 25-touchdown seasons


Dec 23 2017 - Kenny Hilliard
  RB Kenny Hilliard was signed on Saturday after RB LeShun Daniels was placed on injured reserve.Hilliard, 26, entered the NFL as a seventh-round pick of the Houston Texans in 2015. He re-joins the Redskins after spending much training camp and all of the preseason with the team.

  RB LeShun Daniels was placed on injured reserve Saturday and the Redskins signed free agent running back Kenny Hilliard. Daniels injured a hand during practice on Thursday. He had three carries for 14 yards in four games this season.


Dec 20 2017 - Zach Brown

Dec 20 2017 - Stacy McGee
  DE Stacy McGee (flu) missed practice on Wednesday with an illness that has struck the Redskins.


Dec 20 2017 - Morgan Moses
  RT Morgan Moses (flu/ankle) missed practice on Wednesday.

  OLB Ryan Anderson (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.


Dec 20 2017 - Jamison Crowder
  WR Jamison Crowder (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice with an injury that caused him to miss a Nov. 5 game against the Seattle Seahawks.


Dec 20 2017 - Trent Williams
  LT Trent Williams could be done for the season. A Pro Bowl selection for the sixth time, he has missed four of Washington's past eight games playing on a patella tendon tear in his right knee. He has known for weeks that surgery was necessary and rarely practices during the week. But with the playoffs out of reach, Williams is basically serving as an emergency option in case the Redskins need help on the offensive line the final two games of the season. He did not play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. "Our goal was to be in the playoffs," Williams said. "That's not going to happen so now it's time to start looking toward getting healthy again." Surgery will require a six-month rehabilitation process, according to Williams. Williams was voted to his sixth straight Pro Bowl on Tuesday. He is joined for the second year in a row by guard Brandon Scherff, Washington's first-round draft pick in 2015 and No. 5 overall. Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan made the Pro Bowl for the third time and second year in a row. He is the first Washington linebacker to make consecutive Pro Bowls since London Fletcher did it from 2009 to 2012. Not even Redskins head coach Jay Gruden is immune to the injury bug. He smashed his hand on rookie running back Samaje Perine at practice on Wednesday. Gruden, a college star at Louisville and a long-time Arena League quarterback, is known to challenge wide receivers in coverage during one-on-one drills. "I bruised my hand. Samaje (Perine) has got these big, fat elbows and I tried to poke the ball loose and hit my hand," Gruden cracked. "But it's OK. I'm not going to hit the injury report today. Now, my (hamstrings) are a different story. I almost pulled a hammy today."


Dec 18 2017 - Kirk Cousins
  QB Kirk Cousins rebounded from an off game against the Los Angeles Chargers with an efficient one against the Cardinals. He completed 18 of 26 passes for 196 yards with two touchdowns.


Dec 18 2017 - Trent Williams
  LT Trent Williams (right knee) will likely stick around until the end of the season even though he believes he needs surgery. Williams missed Sunday's win against the Arizona Cardinals, but has played in four of the past six games.


Dec 18 2017 - *Montae Nicholson
  S Montae Nicholson remains in the concussion protocol. He has missed four games in a row and five of six.


Dec 18 2017 - Ryan Anderson
  LB Ryan Anderson is day-to-day with a strained patella tendon sustained in Sunday's win against the Arizona Cardinals.


Dec 18 2017 - Bashaud Breeland
  CB Bashaud Breeland is day-to-day with an AC joint sprain sustained in Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.


Dec 18 2017 - Zach Brown
  ILB Zach Brown missed his first game of the season on Sunday with an assortment of injuries (illness/toe/Achilles tendon/hip). He is listed as day-to-day and his status for Sunday's home game against the Denver Broncos remains unclear.


Dec 18 2017 - Jonathan Allen
  DE Jonathan Allen's season is almost certainly over. He remains on injured reserve, but is eligible to come off at any time from his Lisfranc sprain. Allen said earlier this month he'd like to play again before the season ends. But with two games left to go, the Redskins are being cautious with their 2017 first-round pick.


Dec 18 2017 - Anthony Lanier
  DE Anthony Lanier had two sacks and batted down three passes against the Cardinals.


Dec 18 2017 - Chase Roullier
  C Chase Roullier, who missed the previous three games with a broken right hand, returned against the Cardinals. Roullier was a sixth-round draft pick out of Wyoming in 2017 and made the active roster out of training camp, but didn't play a snap through the first five games.


Dec 17 2017 - Preston Smith
  LB Preston Smith had an interception, fumble recovery and a sack for the Redskins.


Dec 17 2017 - Dustin Hopkins
  Redskins K Dustin Hopkins was activated off injured reserve on Saturday and the team waived K Nick Rose. He went 2-for-2 on field goal tries and made his two extra points.


Dec 17 2017 - Kirk Cousins
