Carrier and Roberts among three Redskins who didn't practice Friday


Carrier and Roberts among three Redskins who didn't practice Friday

In addition to losing starting linebacker Perry Riley for three to six weeks, the Redskins continue to have some other injury concerns as Monday’s showdown with the Cowboys approaches. Here is the injury rundown from Friday’s practice:

  • TE Derek Carrier (ankle/Achilles) did not practice for a second straight day. “He’s questionable right now,” Coach Jay Gruden said.
  • CB Quinton Dunbar (finger) was again limited. But Gruden is encouraged. “I think so,” Gruden said, asked if the corner will play. “He’s got his finger protected, but it’s a finger. He should be all right.”
  • DE Chris Baker was a full participant after missing Thursday’s practice with an illness.
  • ILB Keenan Robinson (shoulder) continues to improve but it remains unclear if he’ll play against the Cowboys. He’s missed the past three games. “Keenan hasn’t done a lot at practice,” Gruden said. “He’s been involved a little bit on a limited basis the last few weeks but we’ll have to wait and see how he feels tomorrow and go from there.”
  • WR Andre Roberts (knee) did not practice for a second day in a row. He got hurt the Giants.
  • S Trent Robinson also did not practice after being listed as limited on Thursday. He’s been sidelined since getting hurt New England.
  • DE Jason Hatcher (knee) and S Dashon Goldson (knee/hamstring/wrist) were upgraded to limited after sitting out Thursday. Both veterans have ramped up their level of participation throughout the week recently.
  • Also limited were CB Dashazor Everett (hamstring) and RB Chris Thompson (shoulder).  
  • CB Will Blackmon (shoulder/hip) was full-go after being limited Thursday.

Gruden will rule the injured players as probable, questionable, doubtful or out after tomorrow’s practice.

Terrelle Pryor reportedly closing in on deal with new team

Terrelle Pryor reportedly closing in on deal with new team

Former Washington Redskin Terrelle Pryor may have found a new home after a tumultuous season in Washington.

The 28-year-old wide receiver appears to be on the way to the New York Jets for the 2018 season according to Ian Rappaport.

Last season, Pryor only played in nine games for Washington and was sent to injured reserve after Week 11. His season ended with ankle surgery and it closed the book on a short stint in the nation’s capital.

In his nine games, he never got on the same page with former Redskins’ quarterback Kirk Cousins. Targeted only 37 times, the six-year veteran only had 20 receptions for 240 yards and a single touchdown.

This is coming after a 1,000-yard season on the dismal Cleveland Browns team that went 1-15 in 2016. As a free-agent, he signed with Washington on a ‘prove-it’ deal for one-year, eight million last off-season. He was expected to a significant amount of touches alongside Josh Doctson.


With so much anticipation it was easy to say that Pryor’s lone season in Washington was a disappointment.

If he does sign with the Jets, Pryor joins a New York franchise that is still continuing to rebuild. They currently own the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and are in search of a quarterback.  A year ago they finished 5-11 under third-year head coach Todd Bowles.

Transitioned to wide receiver in Cleveland, Pryor was drafted into the league as a quarterback.  He spent three seasons in Oakland (2011-13) all as a quarterback making 10 starts. In Cleveland (2015-16) he made the transition to wide receiver before going to Washington in 2017.

Good news Redskins fans: Jason Pierre-Paul shipped out of NFC East


Good news Redskins fans: Jason Pierre-Paul shipped out of NFC East

The Giants shipped out Jason Pierre-Paul for life as a Buccaneer, and in turn, Tampa will send a third and fourth round draft pick to New York.

Moving Pierre-Paul comes at a curious time for the Giants. The team will eat $15 million of dead money in the move, and New York also sent a fourth-round pick to Tampa as part of the transaction. 

What it definitely signals is that Big Blue looks to be moving from a 4-3 base defense to a 3-4 look. Additionally, with the second overall pick in the NFL Draft in April, maybe the Giants will seriously look at NC State defensive lineman Bradley Chubb. 


For the Redskins, seeing Pierre-Paul leave the NFC East is welcome news. He has 12.5 career sacks against Washington QBs, the same amount he has against the Eagles and Cowboys combined.
