Kyshoen Jarrett opens up about his healing after scary hit from a year ago

Kyshoen Jarrett opens up about his healing after scary hit from a year ago

On Tuesday, 12 months removed from the frightening hit in Dallas that halted his NFL career, former Redskin Kyshoen Jarrett offered an expansive update on how he's recovering. In a tweet that contained four screenshots worth of words, Jarrett gave insight on the injury itself, the dark times he's faced and the continuous healing process he faces every day.

First, the 23-year-old brought up the collision in last season's regular season finale that started him on the path he's currently on.

"I delivered & took a pretty hard hit directly to my neck," he wrote. "From that point on my life seemed to have done a complete 180... What I felt was very unfamiliar, scary, & I panicked."

Jarrett, who was a sixth-round draft pick in 2015 that ended up blossoming into a do-it-all defender for an upstart Redskins team, said the run-in "took life" out of his body. And since then, he's been on an "emotional roller coaster."

"I've prayed. I've cried. I've been angry," Jarrett said. "I've wanted to fight. I've wanted to call it quits."

The Virginia Tech product said that since that game against the Cowboys, many people have reached out to him on social media asking about if he'll ever take the field again. However, he said that while he understands the passion folks have for the Burgundy and Gold, he wants them to understand that the physical recovery isn't the most crucial part of what he's going through.

"I believe it's the healing internally that's most important," he said. "Understanding if that particular person is doing well spiritually, mentally, & emotionally is 10x more important." 

The full message from Jarrett, which can be found below, makes it sound as if he's in a better place than he was in the immediate aftermath of the tackle, and is fully focused on improving his daily life, not making a return to football.

Terry McLaurin continues to dominate the Eagles with an electric 75-yard touchdown

In Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season, Terry McLaurin introduced himself to opposing defenses, specifically the Eagles secondary, as he racked up 125 yards and a touchdown on five receptions.

Since then, the rookie receiver has continued to showcase his talent, establishing himself as Washington's No. 1 target and a pass catcher that all teams should fear. Through incredible catches and strong runs after the receptions, he's shown he can do it all.

So with the Eagles coming to town in Week 15 for a divisional battle, what would he do for an encore? It didn't take long for Philadelphia to find out.

Catching a pass from Dwayne Haskins on a slant, McLaurin turned upfield, left the secondary in the dust and sprinted into the end zone for a 75-yard score to give Washington a 7-3 lead in the first half.

Not only did the touchdown show McLaurin's ability, but it also displayed the growing connection between him and Haskins. Teammates in college, the two are still continuing to get more comfortable with each other. Plays like that are a sign of things to come, something that will please Redskins fans and even get a smile out of their former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, who was reportedly in attendance for Sunday's game.

If McLaurin is doing this in his rookie year, the Eagles are not going to enjoy the coming years.

Trent Williams shares video of dog after reported fight that killed neighbor's dog

One of Trent Williams’ dogs involved in a fight with his neighbor’s dog received stitches on several deep cuts after the incident, according to a video shared by Williams on Twitter.

Redskins running back Derrius Guice posted a video of Williams' pitbull on Twitter. Williams quote- tweeted it on his account, echoing Guice’s statement with shouting emojis.

Warning: The video, which is linked here, is graphic and may be disturbing to some readers. 

The fight, which occurred in Missouri City, Texas, resulted in the death of the neighbor’s dog, Sandy. Williams' neighbors told local TV station ABC 13 that the dogs at his house are a menace to the neighborhood. "We've been here three years, and I'll definitely tell you my family and I feel like prisoners in our own neighborhood," said neighbor Cecelia Hernandez.

Williams defended his pets, telling ABC 13 that Sandy sent the dog she attacked to the veterinarian’s office fighting for its life. The procedures cost about $5,000 in medical bills.

Local police and animal control are no longer investigating the incident. Neither Williams nor his neighbors were charged.
