New York Giants
The Washington Redskins planned to work out free agent punters after Sav Rocca "tweaked" his knee while jogging Thursday, head coach Mike Shanahan said. The Redskins will work Rocca out on Saturday before deciding whether to sign another punter for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Rocca is officially listed as questionable. Rocca also serves as the holder on field goals. Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins has been practicing as the holder the past two days, and would serve in that capacity Sunday if Rocca can't play, unless the replacement punter has experiencing holding. Fullback Darrel Young was also listed as questionable after reporting a tight hamstring Friday, and Shanahan said he would be a game-time decision. "With those hamstrings, you just never know," Shanahan said. Wide receiver Pierre Garcon (foot) did not practice and is listed as doubtful, while safety Brandon Meriweather will miss another game with his knee injury. Also...

LEADERSHIP IN WASHINGTON
The Redskins rookie quarterback understands that he has to assume the role of team leader and doesn't appear to be backing down from the responsibility.
The Redskins might need another punter for Sunday. Sav Rocca was limited in practice because of an issue with his right knee, prompting the Redskins to bring in free agent punter Chas Henry on Friday.
Henry has a 44.0-yard average on 82 career punts, including 16 this season with Philadelphia. The problem has been his net average, which is 37.6.
WR Pierre Garcon (foot) won'...

INJURY UPDATE: Somehow, punter Sav Rocca injured himself and the Redskins are working out former Eagles punter Chas Henry today. Rocca is also a former Eagles punter so it appears the Redskins like former Eagles punters.
I strongly recommend all Redskins fans watch this video from NFL Films to understand how the Redskins offense works...
Washington Redskins special teams maven Lorenzo Alexander is making a move to get more playing time on defense.
The player nicknamed ''One Man Gang'' had 1 1/2 sacks and plucked a fumble out of the air deep in opposition territory in Redskins' 38-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings.
The Redskins have been looking to fill the spot left vacant by the season-ending...
For the third time in six weeks, the NFL has named Redskins QB Robert Griffin III the rookie of the week. Not surprising given his stellar performance against the Vikings. RGIII threw for over 180 yards and a TD while he also ran for 139 yards including a 76 yard TD dash that iced the Redskins win over Minnesota.
Overall, RGIII is second overall in rushing TDs with 6 on...
New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul must feel pretty good about himself after he broke out of his funk and terrorized the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
He must also feel good about his chances of putting some heat on the Washington Redskins Robert Griffin III after watching teams such as the Atlanta Falcons lay multiple licks on him.
Today he said that he has some advice...
Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan says injured receiver Pierre Garcon is a ''long shot'' to play against the New York Giants on Sunday.
Garcon missed practice a second day in a row Thursday, getting treatment for the painful swelling on the bottom of a right toe that has kept him out of three of Washington's past five games. He'll skip practice Friday...
The Washington Redskins plan to wait until Saturday to pick their punter for Sundays game against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium, Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports.
With their punter, Sav Rocca, plagued by a knee injury suffered while jogging after a practice this week, the Redskins had a workout Friday at Redskins Park for three punters. The group included former...
There may not be a more racist sports team name than the one of the Washington Redskins. One of the NFL’s longtime franchises adopted the racial descriptor for a name back in the team’s second season while still calling Boston home. I know, I am as shocked as you are when it comes to where [...]
Redskins listed Pierre Garcon as doubtful for Sunday's game against the NFC East-rival New York Giants with a nagging foot injury the wide receiver has been battling for most of this season.
Punter Sav Rocca (knee) and fullback Darrel Young (hamstring) are both questionable for Sunday's game. Cornerback Cedric Griffin was a limited participant and was also termed questionable...
They entered the NFL together in the 2006 draft class and quickly became starters for their respective teams as rookies.
Barry Cofield began laying the groundwork to establish himself as one of the NFL's top defensive tackles.
Kevin Boothe got cut by Oakland the following year.
As fate would have it, they would become teammates for four seasons with the New York Giants.
Robert Griffin III has apparently earned the respect of Osi Umenyiora.
The Giants defensive end didn't buy into the hype of the Redskins rookie quarterback prior to the season, and thus said he'd only refer to the Heisman Trophy winner as "Bob."
However, as the two NFC East teams get ready to battle on Sunday, Umenyiora is giving Griffin some...
Dos Equis has the Most Interesting Man in the World.
The Washington Redskins can counter with Lorenzo Alexander.
Like the outrageous situations involving that suave pitchman in beer commercials, Alexander's ability to forge a six-year NFL career is just as improbable.
Alexander was once a 315-pound defensive tackle. He is now a 245-pound linebacker who is garnering Pro Bowl...
