4 Redskins Questionable v. Broncos

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].

Redskins Lose Chris Neild for the Season; Chris Baker Prepared to Step In

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...

Washington Redskins Player Profile: Chris Neild

When it comes to under appreciated players on the 2011 Washington Redskins, the very first name that comes out is London Fletcher.

Neild Brings Hess Trucking Joy To Fans

By now, many of you are familiar with Redskins nose tackle Chris Neild, and the nickname “Truck” that he acquired in the fifth grade.

No-Shave-November Yields Few Honors

AP Image 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.
