Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said he expects to enter the season with Tyler Polumbus as his starting right tackle, and that he doesnt foresee the team making any moves to find a replacement for Jammal Brown via trade or free agency.
Brown was projected to enter his third straight season as Washingtons starting right tackle, but on the eve of training camp, he re-injured his surgically repaired right hip which has hobbled him in each of the last two seasons. Brown last Thursday had surgery to repair what turned out to be a torn ligament in the hip and on Monday was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list for the regular season. That means that the earliest that he would be available to the team would be after Week 6, although the team has until Week 10 to evaluate him and decide whether to activate him, place him on injured reserve or cut him.
Polumbus, who signed as a free agent last November and went on to start four games, splitting time at left guard and right tackle, has worked as the first-team right tackle since Browns injury. Source: Washington Post

Legendary QB Sonny Jurgensen didn't care for one aspect of Robert Griffin III's pregame routine, so the rookie signal caller decided to change things up a bit.
Could Alfred Morris wind up being the starter for Week 1? Well according to Chris Russell on Twitter, Redskins HC Mike Shanahan is certainly suggesting it.
Shanny is basically sitting on his ever so old mantra of “we’ll play the best players…” which suggests that Alfred Morris could be that guy after torching the Indianapolis Colts for 107 rushing yards and a single TD.
Incumbent Graham Gano has beaten out Neil Rackers in the competition for the Washington Redskins kicking job.
Rackers was among the first round of cuts Monday as the Redskins trimmed their roster to 75 players.
Gano won a competition that was mainly decided on the practice field. The Redskins attempted only two field goals in their first three preseason games, both by Rackers....
The Washington Redskins made two surprised cuts a day after the roster had to be reduced to 75. The first was the announcement that Graham Gano didn't win the kicking competition with Neil Rackers. Instead he too received the boot and the team brought in Billy Cundiff, formally of the Baltimore Ravens. The Skins also released fan favorite, Chris Cooley, who shouldn't...
A team led by Rex Grossman and John Beck hardly warrants excitement. It doesn’t matter how good your defence is, your running game is, or any facet of your team is, if the guy that leads your team doesn’t inspire confidence, a team and its fanbase will decline.
Fortunately for Redskins’ fans, excitement is just what the Redskins had in mind for 2012. Enter RG3. The second...
The Redskins announced Wednesday they re-signed quarterback Jonathan Crompton, who was released Monday. Crompton is just looking to make the roster as a third quarterback. He might get cut again and signed to the practice squad. Source: CBSSports Attached Thumbnails
Chris Cooley once said it would be terrible to play for another team just when the Washington Redskins were getting good again. He wanted to be a Redskins player for life. One of the mysteries of the offseason was whether he had a place on the team and on the salary cap.
Head coach Mike Shanahan informed Captain Chaos that Fred Davis would start at right end. Cooley wants to be...
Chris Cooley's eight-year run with the Washington Redskins is over. The team let Cooley break the news himself in a sudden, although not shocking press conference Tuesday.
"The Washington Redskins are releasing me today," Cooley said. "This will be my last day as a Redskin. I'm very fortunate to have played for a team and a fan base that have embraced me...
After starting at tight end for the Washington Redskins for the past eight years, the team has moved on from Chris Cooley. The Redskins officially annouced his release on Tuesday.This move doesn't come as a surprise to many with 2008 second round pick Fred Davis finally earning a starting role with his impressive production a season ago. Despite missing the final four games of...
Washington cornerback Kevin Barnes says he's been traded to the Detroit Lions.
Barnes said he was informed early Monday afternoon that he was on his way to Detroit. He said he didn't know any other details about the deal.
Barnes was a third-round pick by the Redskins in 2009. He's played in 29 games with three starts over three seasons and has three career interceptions...
Washington tight end Chris Cooley was released on Tuesday.Fantasy Spin:Cooley was no longer a fantasy option due to injuries and the arrival of Fred Davis. He could still land a job somewhere in the NFL, but it's highly unlikely that he'll have any fantasy value.
On his first full day on the job as the kicker for the Washington Redskins, Billy Cundiff made three of four field goal attempts - and was booed for the one he missed - making him the only first-stringer to do something noteworthy in Wednesday night's 30-3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Cundiff, signed Tuesday after the Redskins cut Graham Gano, converted from 39, 27 and...

The Skins released Chris Cooley today. We were pretty big fans. Here are 47 reasons why:
1. He wore short shorts in practice.
2. He wore short shorts over long tights in practice.
3. He was drafted by Joe Gibbs, who’s “queer” for tight ends.
4. He left his car running for nine hours while attending a hockey game.
5. He and his brother competed in (and lost) the Mottram-Cooley...
The Redskins signed kicker Billy Cundiff less than 24 hours after he was released by the Ravens. Washington had released Neil Rackers on Monday, the NFL deadline to reduce rosters to 75 players, and named Graham Gano its placekicker. Cundiff lost a battle with undrafted rookie Justin Tucker with the Ravens. He'll be remembered by Ravens fans for his 32-yard game-tying field...
