Redskins vs. Cowboys inactive list: Breeland not in uniform

It’s official: The Redskins will go into today’s Week 8 game against the Cowboys without three of their starting offensive linemen and, in a surprise, one of their starting cornerbacks.

Here are today’s inactives for Washington:

  • OT Trent Williams
  • C Spencer Long
  • G Brandon Scherff
  • OT Ty Nsekhe
  • WR Brian Quick
  • CB Bashaud Breeland
  • TE Jeremy Sprinkle

Breeland suffered a knee injury two weeks ago against the 49ers. He played last week against the Eagles.

Although he was listed as questionable on the injury report, he was expected to play. Quinton Dunbar is starting in his place.

Long (knees) was declared out in the Friday injury report. Williams (knee) and Scherff (knee) were listed as questionable but word got out this morning that neither is healthy enough to play.

Rookie Chase Roullier will start in Long’s sport and T.J. Clemmings will play left tackle in Williams place. Rookie Tyler Catalina is expected to start for Scherff at right guard. Roullier and Catalina will be making their first NFL starts while Clemmings has started 31 games the past two seasons for the Vikings.

It should be noted that right tackle Morgan Moses also was listed as questionable with two ankle sprains. Perhaps he would be sidelined if there were viable alternatives, but there aren’t any. The Cowboys are ranked 24th in rushing defense but it might be difficult for them to take advantage of that in their depleted state.

Terrelle Pryor, DJ Swearinger get into heated exchange during Day 3 of Redskins-Jets practice

Terrelle Pryor, DJ Swearinger get into heated exchange during Day 3 of Redskins-Jets practice

The Redskins' joint practices with the Jets have been nothing short of entertaining.

Day 1 of practice brought a couple of brawls between the two teams, with one spilling into the sideline where fans were standing. 

Day 2 was relatively calm, but Day 3 has brought another altercation, this time between former teammates Terrelle Pryor and DJ Swearinger. 

During a one-on-one rep, safety Monte Nicholson broke up a pass to Pryor. As Pryor started walking back to the sideline, a very hyped-up DJ Swearinger had more than a few things to say about it. As the two inched closer, Swearinger fakes a punch, causing Pryor to flinch and creating roars from the Redskins sideline. 

It's clear the Redskins' DBs have strong feelings towards their ex-teammate.  Back in June, inside linebacker Zach Brown said the 'Skins would "have it out" for Pryor during their joint practices. 

While Pryor won't be playing in Thursday's preseason game, let's hope the competition continues over nonetheless.

Redskins release CB Orlando Scandrick

Redskins release CB Orlando Scandrick

RICHMOND—Orlando Scandrick’s career with the Redskins ended without him even playing a game.

Head coach Jay Gruden confirmed reports that the team has released Scandrick on the last day of training camp. He did not play in the Redskins’ preseason opener against the Patriots last Thursday.

While reasons for the release will become clearer with time, it is apparent that the Redskins have a great deal of faith in their young cornerbacks, particularly second-year player Fabian Moreau. With Scandrick on the team, Moreau was slated to be the backup slot corner. With Scandrick now gone, the Redskins likely will go with Moreau as the slot cornerback.

The team also apparently has confidence in Quinton Dunbar to start opposite Josh Norman. They also like rookies Greg Stroman, Adonis Alexander, and Danny Johnson. As of now, those three are the backups at cornerback.

Scandrick signed a two-year, $7 million contract in March. The only guaranteed money was a $1 million signing bonus. The move will save the Redskins $2.1 million in cap space this year. They will take a $500,000 dead cap hit next year to account for the prorated portion of the signing bonus.
