The Washington Redskins will sign former Indianapolis Colts long snapper Justin Snow to replace injured Nick Sundberg. Sundberg suffered a broken left arm in the first half of Sunday’s game against New Orleans during a blocked punt, but he continued to play in the second half. The Redskins haven’t announced whether Sundberg, whose arm was placed in a cast, will be put on injured reserve, The Washington Post reported Tuesday. Snow spent the previous 12 seasons with the Colts. According to The Post, Snow apparently won the job over Lonie Paxton, Joe Zelenka and Matt Katula during a tryout.
BEST OF MAXIM
GOT IT ALL
John Madden thinks pretty highly of Robert Griffin III, comparing him favorably to Tim Tebow.
Even though I picked the Saints to win this one I was right about something. I said, unlike many so-called experts, that the Redskins could win this game and if they won the turnover battle they'd win the game. Well guess who won the turnover battle. Here's a hint, it wasn't the Saints.
With 3:18 to go in the game the Skins held a 16 point lead over the defending...
Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon believes he’ll be ready to go next week against the Rams after suffering a right foot injury that forced him to miss rest of Sunday’s win over the Saints.
“I’m feeling good. Should be good to go next week,” Garcon said. “We’ll get it checked on, I’ll be ready back for St. Louis.”
Garcon was a great free agent acquisition...
Prepare to be annoyed. For those of you who despise the whole "Tebowing" concept, a new phenomenon could soon bug you this football season. It's apparently called "Griffining." Robert Griffin III was impressive in his first career NFL start for the Redskins on Sunday, and among his many nifty plays was an 88-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon. RGIII actually...
Washington Redskins rookie safety Jordan Bernstine is out for the season with torn ligaments in his right knee.
Bernstine was injured on a kickoff in the fourth quarter of Washington's 40-32 win over the New Orleans Saints.
Bernstine was a seventh-round draft pick this year. His injury is another blow to an already depleted secondary. Brandon Meriweather is sidelined with sprained...
According to Rich Tandler of Comcast Sports Net, Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has stated that running back Alfred Morris is their starter going forward.
Shanahan: “Alfred right now is our starting running back.”

Morris was very impressive during Sunday’s big win over the Saints.
Last week: 16 (+0)
There isn’t much that needs to be said. The Redskins went into New Orleans with a rookie quarterback and beat a Saints team that was undefeated at home last year. The defense is a bit of a concern, but then again, they were playing Drew Brees, and any potential Robert Griffin week to week inconsistencies are also a concern and very possible because...
RGIII stunned the Saints in his debut for the Redskins, and the Eagles need 4th quarter magic to beat the Browns. CHFF's Justin Henry breaks it down.
No doubt about it—Robert Griffin III started his career with a bang on Sunday, with 320 yards, 2 TD passes with no interceptions, and 10 rushes for 48 yards (the gaudy fantasy stats), not to mention a 73% completion percentage, a 139.9 QB rating and most importantly, a win.
The start (and the hype) remind me of a quarterback that I doubted coming into the league last year, and...
Washington Redskins – 40 New Orleans Saints – 32
By now I am sure you are aware that the Washington Redskins went marching into Saints territory and did something that no team was able to do last year — win in New Orleans — and did it in a rather strong fashion.
The much anticipated debut of Robert Griffin III lived up to everyone in Redskins Nation’s...
One of the more compelling storylines from Week One was the impressive debut of Robert Griffin III. The Heisman Trophy winning quarterback and No. 2 overall pick led the Redskins to a surprising road upset of the favored Saints.
In fact, it was more than impressive. It was historic in more than one way.
On Wednesday, the NFL announced that Griffin is the NFC offensive player of the...
Mike Shanahan must take his team down a peg or two to prepare the Washington Redskins for the Saint Louis Rams. That's where those underpaid quality control assistants (and future NFL coaches) come in handy. They've charted all the player performances and organized them by down and distance for the coach who can now deliver this message to the team – you weren't that...
Rookie quarterbacks were the headliners of Week 1 — quick summary: Robert Griffin III was great, Andrew Luck didn’t suck, Brandon Weeden was worse...
