Fines issued to Ryan Anderson, DeAndrew White for hits that injured Olsen, Quinn

Fines issued to Ryan Anderson, DeAndrew White for hits that injured Olsen, Quinn

The NFL levied fines for unnecessary roughness to the Redskins linebacker Ryan Anderson and Panthers special teamer DeAndrew White after they delivered hits that forced opposing players to exit the game between the two teams in Week 13.

Anderson was ejected for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Panthers tight end Greg Olsen in the third quarter. Olsen exited the game with a concussion and didn’t return. He’s been declared inactive ahead of Carolina’s Week 14 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons.

Redskins fans were disgruntled with the referees for ejecting Anderson but allowing White to stay in the game when the crown of his helmet caught the facemask of Redskins punt returner Trey Quinn. Quinn was also pulled from the game with a concussion and has been declared inactive for Week 14.

Washington went on to win the game, 29-21.

Both players were given the same fine of $28,075 for their respective hits.

Derrius Guice teases Cam Sims and Shaun Dion Hamilton after Alabama loses to Auburn

Derrius Guice teases Cam Sims and Shaun Dion Hamilton after Alabama loses to Auburn

It's been a tough few weeks for Alabama football. 

Two weeks after they lost to LSU at home, they lost star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa for the season to a hip injury. 

Fast forward to today. The Crimson Tide were in a shootout with hated rival Auburn Tigers and lining up for a field goal to tie the game at 48 in the closing minutes. 

Kicker Joseph Bulovas sent a 30-yard kick right off the upright to all but seal their second loss of the season, basically eliminating them from the College Football Playoff for the first time. 

After the game, Redskins running back Derrius Guice, who starred at LSU, tweeted a video of him teasing former Alabama players and current Redskins Cam Sims and Shaun Dion Hamilton for their alma mater's loss. 

Guice has certainly had plenty of fun watching Alabama lose this season, as we already noted their loss to LSU from three weeks ago. 

Not too many people, especially former SEC players, like to see Alabama and Nick Saban win. With the program almost certainly out of the CFP for the first time since the changeover from the BCS, those individuals can rejoice. 

Meanwhile, Guice, Sims and Hamilton have a game Sunday against the Panthers at 1 p.m. EST.

With Ryan Kerrigan out, Redskins promote OLB Chris Odom from practice squad

With Ryan Kerrigan out, Redskins promote OLB Chris Odom from practice squad

With Ryan Kerrigan missing his first game in a decade this week against the Panthers, the Redskins activated edge rusher Chris Odom from the practice squad Saturday. 

They also released Caroll Phillips in a subsequent move. 

Undrafted out of Arkansas State in 2017, Odom spent his first two seasons with the Falcons and Packers before playing with the Salt Lake Stallions in the AAF in 2018. 

After a successful stint there, he signed a two-year contract with the Falcons but was waived at the conclusion of training camp. That's when the Redskins picked him up, and even though they waived him in early October, they brought him back on the practice squad two weeks ago. 

Going into Sunday, Odom and Nate Orchard figure to be the backup outside linebackers with Kerrigan out and Ryan Anderson starting in his place. Orchard was also signed this week. 

The Redskins and Panthers will kick off Sunday at 1 p.m. EST in Charlotte.
