Morgan Moses says he'll play Sunday despite leaving Carolina game with injury

Morgan Moses says he'll play Sunday despite leaving Carolina game with injury

On the same day that Redskins Ironman Ryan Kerrigan missed his first career NFL game since he entered the league in 2011, the team saw another one of their other most durable players leave due to injury.

Right tackle Morgan Moses was unable to play the entire second half of Washington's Week 13 victory over the Carolina Panthers after injuring his back late in the second quarter. 

Moses underwent an MRI on Monday and believes he'll be ready to suit up when the Redskins take the field next this Sunday in Green Bay. 

"I'm going to keep on pushing, man. I'll be in there," Moses said Tuesday on The Sports Junkies on his status for Sunday. "I just got to work some things out and get some reps in practice and get it going, man."

Should Moses play, Sunday would mark his 77th consecutive start, by far the longest streak on the team now that Kerrigan has missed a game.

During Sunday's game, it wasn't clear on which play Moses actually injured himself on. The game was never stopped due to his injury, making it difficult to see how it occurred. 

"It was our first touchdown," Moses said of the play that he sustained his injury. "I surged off the ball, and [Derrius Guice's] helmet went directly into my back, and I lost some feeling in my legs.

"When I got to the sidelines, I said to Guice, 'What the hell, man?'" Moses said. "He goes, 'look, it was the only place to fit the ball.'"

The touchdown made the score 14-12, which led the Redskins to attempt a two-point conversion. That play was when Moses realized he could no longer play in Sunday's game.

"I got speed rushed by Bruce Irvin," Moses said. "When I turned and pivoted, my back popped, and that's when my legs went numb."

Moses played just 38-percent of the Redskins' offensive snaps on Sunday, with second-year pro Geron Christian playing in his place.

If Moses is able to play vs. Green Bay, he has a big challenge ahead of him. The Packers employ one of the best pass-rushing duos in the league, as both former Redskins Preston Smith and Za'Darius Smith have double-digit sacks in 2019.

Dwayne Haskins wants the Redskins to draft another Buckeye wide receiver

Dwayne Haskins wants the Redskins to draft another Buckeye wide receiver

The Redskins recruiting coordinator and quarterback Dwayne Haskins wants to reunite with another one of his former Buckeye teammates in the NFL.

On Thursday, Haskins quote tweeted a video of WR K.J. Hill's highlights at the Senior Bowl with the caption "Need em."

After a back-and-forth, the Redskins' first-round draft pick sealed his approval on the draft prospect by tagging the Redskins' team account. 

K.J. Hill overlapped with Haskins for two years with the Ohio State Buckeyes. During Haskins' final year in Columbus, Hill was the No. 2 receiver with 70 receptions for 885 yards and six touchdowns. 

There was a small dip in production for Hill after Haskins left for the NFL, however, he became a bigger red zone target with 10 touchdowns. 

If the Redskins decided to adhere to their QB's requests, he would not be the only former pass-catching Buckeye to wear the Burgandy and Gold. Third-round draft pick Terry McLaurin was also on the 2018 Ohio State squad before making the move to the NFL.

Hill is just the latest player to be endorsed by Haskins since he became the Redskins starter.  Haskins has tweeted support for the Redskins to bring on Chad Johnson as a wide receiving coach, to draft Chase Young with the No. 2 overall pick, and to sign free agent WR Antonio Brown

Additionally, he understandably asked Trent Williams to come back to protect him on the offensive line after Bruce Allen was removed. 

Could the Redskins go and get another Buckeye in the draft?

Redskins' Tress Way on his Pro Bowl experience: 'I did not realize it was this fun'

Redskins' Tress Way on his Pro Bowl experience: 'I did not realize it was this fun'

The Redskins may just have one Pro Bowler, but punter Tress Way is having an incredible time in Miami thus far.

The second-team All-Pro recipient has been in Orlando for less than 48 hours, but has quickly realized just how fun the week of the NFL's all-star game truly is.

"This sounds funny, but I did not realize it was this fun," Way told Redskins.com's Gabe Henderson on Wednesday on how his week has been thus far.

One of the punter's favorite parts of the week thus far was the basketball shoot-off Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll organized.

"Coach [Pete] Carroll had a shoot-off, had a basketball goal set up and a free throw line," Way said. "He kept calling offensive and defensive guys to come shoot for 30 seconds, and whoever made the most won. The place was going nuts. We had a quick meeting, came out here and did a glorified walkthrough, blasting music, dancing, throwing the ball around. It's seriously so fun, and it's just getting started."

Way, a first-time Pro Bowler, is not enjoying the experience by himself. Several family members made the trek down to Orlando to support the 29-year-old.

"I'm so thankful. This is so awesome," he said. "My whole family is here. I got more family coming. It is definitely surreal."

But perhaps the part Way is looking forward to the most is how he's planning on spending his Thursday evening. 

Way and his family are planning on spending the night at Harry Potter World. The punter never got into the series, much to his mother and little brother's dismay, but plans on going all-in when he arrives.

"I plan on learning all the spells, picking up a custom wand, and having a couple butter beers," Way said. "Really just embarrassing my wife, that's the main goal here. I will be the Master of Death; I will have all three deathly hollows by the time I leave, and pretty much just nerding out the entire night."
