Derrius Guice posts picture lifting weights with Reuben Foster at Redskins Park

Derrius Guice injured his knee in August and has been working out at Redskins Park for months to get ready for the 2019 season. And now he has a new workout partner. 

In the picture with Guice is Reuben Foster, the linebacker the Redskins claimed off waivers last week after he was released from San Francisco. The 49ers released Foster after he was arrested for domestic violence in a Tampa hotel incident two weeks ago, his second domestic violence arrest this year.

The NFL placed Foster on the Commission Exempt list in the hours after the Redskins claimed him off waivers. That means he can't practice or play for the Redskins, but it doesn't completely preclude him from being in the facility. 

The reaction to Foster's signing came swift and furious against the Redskins, and on Thursday morning, his accuser told the story of their most recent encounter

It's unclear if Foster will ever play for the Redskins, as the team has repeatedly said if the charges are true he will not suit up in Burgundy and Gold. Bruce Allen told ESPN that the Redskins did their own investigation into the incident but will let things play out in court and by the league before the team makes any decisions. 

Foster was a first-round pick in 2017 by the 49ers after a stellar career at the University of Alabama. He slipped nearly out of the first round after failing a pre-draft drug test and having an altercation with a hospital worker during the NFL Scouting Combine.

The Redskins-49ers game will have points, but it’s still a historically low-scoring affair

Sloppy field conditions on Sunday for a matchup between the Redskins and 49ers made it seem as if offense would be hard to come by at times.

Until the third quarter, offense was hard to come by at all.

Finally, with around five minutes remaining in the third quarter, the scoreless tie was broken with a 28-yard field goal by Robbie Gould of the 49ers.

Gould added another field goal in the fourth to make it 6-0. 

The low-scoring affair has featured a lot of runs, two missed field goals, turnovers and a lot of sliding around on the field.

Just when it seemed like the Redskins were going to put up a score of their own, Adrian Peterson coughed up the football. Because, of course that would happen during a game like this.

If you're thinking that this contest seems to lack points more than usual, you would be correct.

Subject to change based on how the rest of the game plays out, the teams are on pace to enter a small, sad and historic group.

They say the NFL is becoming an offensive league. This game begs to differ.

Redskins’ Troy Apke picks off Jimmy Garoppolo for first career interception

Redskins’ Troy Apke picks off Jimmy Garoppolo for first career interception

Former fourth-round pick Troy Apke had a tough rookie season in 2018, appearing in just two games for the Redskins and only recording one tackle.

Entering play in Week 7 against the 49ers, Apke had suited up for all six of Washington’s games but had yet to make his mark on the stat sheet. That changed in the third quarter Sunday, when starting free safety Montae Nicholson was carted off with an apparent ankle injury.

The Nicholson injury forced Apke into the game, and he didn’t wait long to make an impact.

It was a huge play, coming on fourth down during the 49ers’ first drive of the second half. He set the Redskins up on their own 47-yard line with the return and appears likely to receive a majority of the snaps at free safety the rest of the game.
