DC Pro Sports Report:
Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan told the media today that LT Trent Williams and ILB London Fletcher were both limited in practice. The troubling part of Shanahan's statement was that he said both had 'significant' injuries but they would 'keep their fingers crossed' for Monday night. Apparently, Williams is suffering from a bruised thigh and Fletcher from a sore ankle.
I for one do not want to see Fletcher's record of consecutives games played broken. However, of much larger concern, is the possiblility of missing Trent Williams. This is the NY Giants dammit. We need Williams badly. Williams will more than likely be lined up to block Jason Pierre Paul. Paul has 6.5 sacks on the season for New York.
The Redskins are sitting at 5-6 and need to win Monday night, no question about it. At this point, Shanahan made no commitments for Monday night and both players status is uncertain.

Most of you have probably heard about how Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris gets around by now. Despite earning an NFL salary, Morris still drives the same 1991 Mazda sedan that he bought during his junior year of college at FAU. Morris loves the car and said he is never getting rid of it even if he buys a new one, but the old beater nearly made him miss a recent team...

“You can definitely sense it. Late in the game against the Cowboys, [linebacker] London [Fletcher] came up and talked to me during the game, which he usually never talks to me during the game. I think he’s in his own world as well. You can feel the excitement they have about what we have brewing here. You want to do it for them. When I was in college, I wanted to do it for the...

Even though we’ve matched up well against them, we haven’t matched up against other teams in this league. I can’t argue with him right now. They won the last one, and they’ve got two Super...
Robert Griffin III is one of the most dynamic players to enter the NFL in the last decade, or perhaps, longer. He is on pace to set several rookie records. RGIII is just 62 yards away from setting the NFL rushing record for an NFL quarterback, now held by Cam Newton, from 2010. Where does RGIII stand in passing and rushing? Here you go . . .
Here we go again. It hasn’t even been a full week since jeweler offered to refund money on sales to customers if Auburn was shutout by Alabama, and now we have a car salesman in Washington, DC offering a similar to deal to patrons if the Washington Redskins are able to shutout the New York [...]
