The Washington Football Team is yet again bringing in a number of free agents this week to try out and potentially earn a spot on the practice squad. Among the players, they are working out three running backs, two offensive linemen, and a linebacker.
After falling behind early and failing to mount an impressive comeback against the Arizona Cardinals, Washington has come back down to earth a bit following their Week 1 win over the Eagles that sent expectations and excitement sky high.
Following the two games Washington has played so far this season, a lot of the public consensus is that Dwayne Haskins is playing slightly below expectations so far, despite throwing for zero interceptions.
Washington Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Scherff is expected to miss 3-5 weeks with a sprained MCL, according to multiple reports. Scherff suffered the injury in the second quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
One of the few benefits of having a dominant defensive line is that the offense can try and get adjusted to the skill level in training camp, and be ready for whatever they’re going to face once the regular season comes.
It wasn’t quite the game that we were hoping to see from Washington on Sunday afternoon in a 30-15 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, but the outcome probably more accurately presents who this team is, rather than the massive comeback victory we saw a week ago against the Philadelphia Eagles.
We all feared the worst when we watched Washington RG Brandon Scherff go down with a knee injury in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals, where he got rolled up on and went down in some serious pain.
