When Jerraud Powers lines up on Saturday against the Washington Redskins, a familiar face will be staring at him across the line of scrimmage. Powers will most likely be matched up against former indianapolis Colts WR Pierre Garcon. Garcon told a Redskins reporter yesterday that while he's excited about his opportunity in Washington, he never wanted to leave Indianapolis.
“I never wanted to leave Indianapolis,” Garçon said Tuesday. “That was my first option, to stay there. But football is football. Things happen.”
The Colts offered Garcon a generous deal to remain with the team, reported to be in the neighborhood of five years and $35 million. At the time, the Colts were in the midst of their roster purge after releasing Peyton Manning.

Too much risk involved with Helu? I’m beginning to think so.
John Keim on Twitter has recently reported that Redskins RB Roy Helu has not one, but TWO, “sore” Achilles tendons which isn’t good news for anyone looking to draft the youngster. The real issue is the actual interpretation of this news and whether or not this said interpretation means we all should be turning our...

Royster has a sore right knee that the team claims wouldn't keep him out of a regular-season game. An MRI exam came back clean, but Royster and Roy Helu will be inactive for Saturday's game. Helu has Achilles soreness. "I'm not sure...
Clinton Portis, the man, the myth, the legend, retires from the NFL today at Redskins Park. He retires as a Redskins player. He retires with Mike Shanahan as the coach that both launched and ended his career. Ironic!

The past couple of seasons have not been ideal for running back Clinton Portis. A slew of injuries and false starts have put his mortality on blast and so it goes that he will retire today as a member of the Washington Redskins.

At one point in his career he told...

It has been a while since the Washington Redskins have had an explosive player who is a threat to score a touchdown every time he touches the ball. Players like Randy Moss in 1998, Devin Hester in 2006, or even Deion Sanders during his “Prime Time” glory days of the 1990s (not the 2000 version that delivered few big plays for a mediocre 8-8 Redskins team with Super Bowl title...

Longtime-NFL punter Tom Tupa is eligible for workers compensation for a career-ending back injury he suffered while warming up for a preseason game in 2005 at FedEx Field while playing for the Washington Redskins, Maryland's highest court ruled on Wednesday.
