Mason Foster to IR, Spencer Long out, and Josh Norman's status for Redskins against Dallas

Mason Foster to IR, Spencer Long out, and Josh Norman's status for Redskins against Dallas

The Redskins got some bad news on the injury front on Friday. We’ll get to some silver linings in a minute.

Inside linebacker Mason Foster will be put on injured reserve later today. He has been trying to play through a torn labrum he suffered in Week 2 against th e Rams.

Earlier today he told the coaches that he can’t go with the pain and limited range of motion in the arm any longer and he will undergo surgery to repair the injury.

Jay Gruden said that Will Compton and Martrell Spaight will handle the starting Mike linebacker spot.

Here's another dose of bad news —starting center Spencer Long is out with knee tendonitis. The issue could sideline him more than this one game. Rookie Chase Roullier will make his first NFL start at center.

Out for the fourth straight game is reserve OT Ty Nsekhe, who still is recovering from surgery to repair a core muscle. He is a very trusted backup and his absence makes it that much more important that Williams and Moses are in the lineup.

You’re probably ready for some better news by now. Cornerback Josh Norman, who has missed the last two games with a broken rib, is listed as questionable for Sunday and he should be ready to play.

Also questionable are OT Trent Williams (knee), G Brandon Scherff (knee) and OT Morgan Moses (ankle). There is a reasonable chance that all three will start although none of the three is a sure thing.

If one of the tackles can't play, T.J. Clemmings, who started 31 games at tackle for the Vikings the last two years, would start.

Tyler Catalina, who also is questionable, could start at guard if he gets final clearance after suffering a concussion two weeks ago.

OLB Preston Smith (groin) also is questionable. A source told NBC Sports Washington that Smith will start, although he could be on a limited snap count.

Also questionable are CB Bashaud Breeland (knee), CB Fabian Moreau (hamstring), S Stephan McClure (knee/hamstring), and S Deshazor Everett (hamstring).

New Redskins player makes major punt gaffe against Giants

New Redskins player makes major punt gaffe against Giants

The Redskins have a bunch of new players on the active roster.

Players who haven't been with the team for more than a few weeks, what with the number of injuries growing by the week.

Pete Robertson is one of those new players, having been with the active roster for all of two days before  the Thanksgiving matchup against the Giants.

Robertson was thrust into the spotlight on Thursday with a costly mistake early on.

Following a Tress Way punt that was looking to pin the Giants near the end zone, Robertson inexplicably picked up the ball at the 10-yard-line and ran it into the end zone for a touchback instead of allowing the ball to bounce toward the goal line.

To be fair, the Week 12 game against the Giants was the official NFL debut for the former Texas Tech linebacker.

Teammate Quinton Dunbar was not pleased with Robertson's mistake and gave him an earful following the play.

Welcome to the NFL, Pete!

We're back! 

If you've managed to make it through some turkey trotting, multiple rounds of food, several helpings of desert, a 3-hour parade and two football games without falling asleep - welcome to this week's Redskins Live Blog. 

Tonight the Redskins try and put the New Orleans fiasco from last Sunday behind them as they welcome the 2-8 New York Giants to FedEx Field. A win against this dysfunctional Giants team would go a long way towards reestablishing the Redskins in the hunt for one of the NFC's Wild Card spots. 

The teams just released their Inactive Lists, and the 'Skins will be without a few familiar names

There's also been an apperance from Young Ben McAdoo, which doesn't really have anything to do with the Redskins at all but is always worth pointing out. 

We'll be updating you all night with real-time scores, stats and analysis, so be sure to stop by while you stare at your phone during your Uncle's uncomfortable rant about the state of US politics.
