NFL Injury Report:
The Washington Redskins have placed defensive end Adam Carriker on the physically unable to perform reserve list, meaning he will be out for at least the first six weeks of the regular season, according to Darin Gantt of Pro Football Talk.
Carriker tore his quadriceps tendon in Week 2 of the 2012 season and was placed on injured reserve. He underwent his third surgery in his right leg in late July. With Carriker still on the long road to recovery, and the 53 man roster deadline approaching, it was nearly inevitable that Carriker would start the 2013 regular season on the PUP.
Carriker's absence will hurt the depth of the Redskins defensive line. When healthy, Carriker is a productive defensive end. He recorded 5.5 sacks in 2011. Considering Carriker has underwent three surgeries for the same injury that he suffered nearly a year ago, it is fair to question how much he will be able to contribute, if and when he does return to the field. With Carriker's absence, Jarvis Jenkins will likely take over the role of starting defensive end.

I feel good, that is the tone coming out of Robert Griffin III these days. For the first time since injuring his knee, RGIII said he is finally 100% healthy. Imagine the timing of this statement, with only one week left in the preseason. I still don’t think Shanahan is going to let RGIII put one foot on the field in a preseason game. Shanahan and RGIII have been going back and...
During lunchtime Tuesday in the Washington Redskins locker room, a computer tablet lay on the floor, plugged into a nearby socket to get charged. It bore the team's logo and the No. 31, the jersey that belongs to safety Brandon Meriweather.
How appropriate. It's time to charge up Meriweather and get him out the field, time to see if he is truly the missing piece in the Redskins...
The Washington Redskins put together their first unbeaten preseason in 28 years without Robert Griffin III even taking a snap.
Griffin then tweeted Thursday night that he will be under center when the regular season opens for Washington on Sept. 9, but coach Mike Shanahan hedged after the 30-12 victory over Tampa Bay.
Fourth-stringer Pat White threw for 181 yards, set up a touchdown...
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III’s documentary called a “Will to Win” aired on Tuesday night and throughout it, viewers saw RG3 working out, rehabbing and wearing lots of socks. One pair of socks even said “I Love Haters,” which is funny because RG3 blocks anyone on Twitter that says anything negative.
At least Redskins fans will be happy to hear that...
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III spent the summer telling everyone how good his surgically repaired knee felt how he'd be ready to play in the season opener and how he always thought he could be doing more. But he never claimed his knee was 100 percent only close to it.
But in a sit-down interview with ESPN980 radio in Washington Griffin said for the first...
