Redskins should get Jonathan Allen ready to go on Monday, per source

Jonathan Allen is expected to be ready to go when Redskins team activities resume next week, per a source with knowledge of the situation.

The second-year defensive tackle from Alabama has been a mainstay in the Redskins Park weight room this offseason, the source said, working out with other defensive linemen.

Allen went down with a Lisfranc injury in Week 5 last year, and he didn’t return the rest of the season. He was eligible to rejoin the roster in late December, but the team kept their promising rookie big man off the field to fully recuperate.

"We want to make sure he's 100 percent," head coach Jay Gruden said last November. "Once we feel like he's in a position where he can play and play effectively, then we'll play him. He's too good a player."

At the same time, Allen explained that the injury was frustrating but he was working hard in his recovery.

"You definitely can learn a lot sitting back and watching them, but as a competitor, you just want to be out there and help your team," Allen said then.

With Allen on the field early in the season, the Redskins defense looked like a formidable unit. Injuries to Allen and others wrecked that vision, and Washington would go on to finish last in the NFL against the run at season’s end.

Much focus points to what player the Redskins will select with the 13th overall selection in the NFL Draft later this month. It’s entirely possible Bruce Allen and the ‘Skins brass again draft a defensive lineman, and it would be a sound practice.

Still, a healthy Allen back on the field could have a more dramatic impact than any player selected at 13

2019 NFL Mock Draft: Final version sends Dwayne Haskins to Redskins

We can stop the mockery.

Here is the final version of the NBC Sports Washington 2019 NFL Mock Draft. No fluff, just the straight list as we project specific marriages of teams and prospects through two rounds plus additional Day 2 selections for the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens.

For those that have been following along for the previous (gulp) 21 versions, you may notice several changes starting with the Raiders at four and including the Redskins at 15 and 46. I’ve been doing mock drafts for many years now and this is easily among the wildest. There’s always the misinformation game. The uncertainty with the quarterbacks and the large of tier talent in the 16-50 range made such projections challenging.

Anyway, thanks for the coming along for the ride over these many months. Check out all of NFL Draft coverage starting with Thursday’s first round.

Quinn Cook rocks Sean Taylor jersey to Warriors-Clippers Game 5

Wednesday marked the 15th anniversary of Sean Taylor being drafted by the Washington Redskins with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft.

Golden State Warriors guard Quinn Cook took the occasion to pay tribute to the late Redskins legend.

Cook, a D.C. native who attended DeMatha and Oak Hill for high school, rocked a Taylor #21 jersey as he entered Oracle Arena for the Warriors' playoff game against the Clippers. 

It was a touching visual, and a powerful reminder of Taylor's incredible legacy not only within the Redskins, but the entire D.C. sports world.
