The Washington Redskins list four players as questionable to play Sunday afternoon in Denver against the 6-1 Broncos. Those four are WR Leonard Hankerson [foot], NT Chris Neild [calf], DE Stephen Bowen [right knee] and S Reed Doughty [concussion]. Doughty is probably the most important person on that list since he is a starting safety […]
Nose guard Chris Neild and rookie linebacker Brandon Jenkins, two of the primary backups on defense for the Redskins, are out of Sunday night's game at Dallas because of injury.
Neild is dealing with a calf injury and Jenkins has a sprained right ankle.

The Washington Redskins entered training camp with more depth than ever. This was especially true along the defensive line and should remain that way unless they become injury riddled. Yesterday, they suffered their first blow. Chris Neild is done for the season after tearing his ACL in 11-on-11's yesterday.
The news was disappointing to players and fans that've watch...

Another player that certainly...

Last night’s Orange Bowl matchup between West Virginia and Clemson was the battle of rookie alma maters between Chris Neild and Jarvis Jenkins.
Going into the game, I spoke with both men to hear some predictions on how they thought the game would go. A confident Jenkins had spoken with Neild already, and knew that there were some injuries on defense for...
By now, many of you are familiar with Redskins nose tackle Chris Neild, and the nickname “Truck” that he acquired in the fifth grade.
Perhaps not surprisingly, trucks were a favorite toy of Neild’s growing up. Each Christmas he would thunder downstairs to find a new Hess truck under the tree. His sister even called him “Hess” from time to time, a nickname that was...
November is a month dominated by football, Thanksgiving, and the growth of beards and mustaches for a good cause.
Call it what you want: Movember, No-Shave-November; but it’s a good opportunity for Redskins players to put down the razors and show what they can grow.
Over the course of the month, the players that showed the most effort were receiver Niles Paul, offensive...
Redskins Chris Neild and Jabar Gaffney share more than just an affinity for facial hair–they’re also birthday twins, born seven years apart and reunited by the Redskins.
Happy birthday to both Jabar and Chris!
Gaffney was coy about his birthday plans, smiling as he said, “I dunno yet man, I’m gonna get into something though.”
Former WVU standout Chris Neild is thriving in the NFL.
