Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon and Bengals cornerback Leon Hall are inactive for Washington's game against visiting Cincinnati.
Garcon is out with a sore right foot Sunday, and Hall is sidelined by an injured calf. Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap (sprained right knee) and running back Bernard Scott (broken right hand) are active for the first time this season.
Garcon quickly established himself as the top target of rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III but was hurt in Week 1. Leonard Hankerson is expected to start in Garcon's place against the Bengals.
Also out for the Redskins is safety Brandon Meriweather, who hasn't played this season because of a sprained left knee. But cornerback Josh Wilson is active after leaving last week's game with a concussion.

The Redskins were dealt crippling blows to their defense last week, losing starting cornerback Josh Wilson, top pass rusher Brian Orakpo, and starting defensive lineman Adam Carriker in the game against St. Louis. The trio played 52, 18, and 2 of 71 snaps respectively. The Redskins’ poor defense had a ton of trouble stopping a Rams offense that isn’t great to begin with and after...
An MRI taken of Washington Redskins offensive tackle Trent Williams revealed a bone bruise in his right knee, the Washington Post reported Monday. Williams played through the pain for parts of the second and third quarter but was forced back to the bench. The team initially feared the injury was more serious. The Post reported that Williams was wearing a brace on the knee at...
Fail to the Redskins! Here are my five keys to a Cincy win in the Capitol this Sunday:
1. Score Early/Get Ahead: The Bengals are on the road for the Redskins home opener. FedEx field is huge, and usually sold out. They will be loud and rocking as they get their highly-anticipated first look at RGIII. The Bengals would do well to get up on the skins by a touchdown...
DOH! So close. Bengals 38, Redskins 34.1. Cincinnati threw the winning touchdown on the first play from scrimmage on a trick play. With QB Andy Dalton lined up on the line and WR Mohamed Sanu lined up in the Wildcat, Washington somehow, mysteriously, inexcusably lost tract of AJ Green. Green met up with Sanu's deep pass about 60 yards downfield and ran unhindered across the...
The Bengals came out firing from the get-go in Washington to get things going for their young offensive squad.
The first play of the game as setup in a wildcat with receiver Mohamed Sanu under center. He took the snap and bombed it downfield to AJ Green who had beat Safety DeJon Gomes and cornerback DeAngelo Hall for the opening touchdown.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon will not play in today’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He’s still dealing with a foot injury that he suffered during their week one win over the Saints.
Washington Redskins Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan isn't as fast at Bill Belichick. Shanahan wasn't able to grab a scab ref -- he simply chased him out of the tunnel while verbally assaulting...

You a nickelodeon fan T?
Robert Griffin III is a pretty crazy talent that all Redskins fans should be happy to have. Rumor has it that he starred in the movie Goodberger? All jokes aside I’m excited to watch RG3 play every sunday.-TO

RG3 Calls out Rams For Playing Dirty
Early on in the game, the Bengals decided to pull out a big time trick and have WR Sanu throw a bomb to AJ Green. Is it beating a dead horse to say Sanu throws it better than Tebow? Probably. S/O to @sbnation for the GIF.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is listed as doubtful against the Cincinnati Bengals with a foot injury. With Garcon out, the Redskins will turn to a rotation of Leonard Hankerson, Santana Moss, Josh Morgan and Aldrick Robinson. Garcon, 26, had a big opening week, hauling four passes for 109 yards and a touchdown, including an 88-yard strike from Robert Griffin...
