The Redskins on Sunday face the Cowboys again, and Wilson, who signed with his hometown team as a free agent in July, hopes he can raise his level of play even further and help his team earn...
The Redskins have made no secrets about their excitement for rookie defensive end Jarvis Jenkins since they made him their second-round draft pick in April. Before his injury, he was on track for major P.T. (playing time) in this year’s defense.
Now he’s on track for a different kind of P.T.: physical therapy. And he’s approached it with the same intensity.
