Bullet points: Keeping an eye on Morgan

A few quick Redskins hits to get your Thursday going:--Im not quite sure why so many people are concerned that fans being able to subscribe to see the all-22 view of NFL games is anything but a positive. Maybe its just because its the slowest of the slow periods for NFL news but these concerns that fans and media will know too much are just stupid.--SI.com picked a player to watch in training camp for each NFL team and they named Josh Morgan for the Redskins. I agree with the selection because the Redskins gave him a pretty big chunk of money over a short period of time (2 years12 million) and got a receiver who has never caught more than 52 passes or gained more than 700 yards in a season. Ill be looking at that in a little more depth in the next several days.--The 53, my roster projection series, will continue Friday with a look at the defensive line. I have no changes from last year as of now, but that could change as I flesh things out while writing the article.--Back to receivers, in case you missed it in the late afternoon on a holiday even on Tuesday, I wouldnt be surprised if when all is said and done the Redskins top receiver in 2012 ends up being not Morgan, not Pierre Garon but Leonard Hankerson.Also, the Nats are as hot as the weather. And I suppose one could look at today as the second Monday this week after the holiday yesterday. But, just think, tomorrow is your second Friday of the week.Days until: Rookies report 11; training camp 21; preseason opener @ Bills 25; final cuts 58; Redskins @ Saints 66; home opener vs. Bengals 80

Reuben Foster believed to be lost for 2019 with major knee, leg injury, per source

Reuben Foster believed to be lost for 2019 with major knee, leg injury, per source

Redskins officials fear that linebacker Reuben Foster has torn the ACL in his left knee, sources tell NBC Sports Washington.

Additionally, there is concern about a more significant injury that could include the artery in his left leg, sources said. 

Foster went down on his first snap in a non-contact drill during OTAs on Monday after stepping on the leg of guard Tyler Catalina. Immediately, Foster fell to the ground, and it was obvious he was in intense pain. He was audibly screaming and crying while writhing in pain on the field. 

Moments later, the Redskins medical staff rushed out to Foster, and within a matter of minutes, his leg was placed into a stabilizing device. He was then helped onto a cart and wheeled off the practice field. 

After practice, Jay Gruden said the team was unsure of Foster's prognosis but did say, "I’m just very disappointed in what happened in his first rep as a Redskin. He runs through the gap and gets injured."

The Redskins took a major public relations hit by signing Foster last fall, and the team's belief was that his play on the field would be worth the controversy that enveloped his signing. Foster won't be playing in 2019, but remains under contract for 2020, and Washington will have the option to keep him in 2021.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott handcuffed by police at Vegas music festival

LAS VEGAS -- Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott was handcuffed by police, but not arrested, after a scuffle involving event staff at a Las Vegas music festival.

Police Officer Laura Meltzer said Monday that the 23-year-old running back was detained briefly early Saturday during the Electric Daisy Carnival at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Cellphone video posted by celebrity website TMZ appeared to show Elliott speaking with a woman and then with several security and event staff members, including one who falls backward over a metal parking area barricade.

Elliott's attorney, Frank Salzano in New York, told TMZ that event security misconstrued the situation and overreacted and that Elliott left Las Vegas for Dallas after the incident to be at his youth football camp Sunday.

Salzano didn't immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press.
