The Redskins hired Scott Turner as OC. He's re-uniting with Ron Rivera after working with him in Carolina the past 2 years. Turner replaced his father, Norv, as Panthers OC for the final 4 games of last season. That's his only experience calling plays at the NFL level.
The Redskins have hired Ron Rivera as their new HC. Rivera compiled a 76-63-1 record in Carolina before being fired earlier this year. He took the Panthers to the playoffs in 4 of his 9 seasons. We'll see if Rivera retains OC Kevin O'Connell or brings in fresh blood.
Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (concussion) is out for Sunday's finale against the Cowboys. He leaves behind 6.6 targets per game. McLaurin's absence is a boost for WR Steven Sims, who's already racked up 28 targets over the last 3 weeks.
Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (concussion) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. Consider the rookie a long shot to get cleared in time for Sunday's finale against the Cowboys. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.
Redskins WR Terry McLaurin is in the concussion protocol, the team announced on Tuesday. That makes the rookie iffy for this weekend's finale against the Cowboys. We'll keep an eye on his status over the next few days.
The forecast for today's Redskins-Bills game calls for winds between 15 and 20 mph with gusts around 30 mph. It won't be as windy as it was last week, but this is still enough to give slight bumps down to the passing and kicking games. Hopefully you were already avoiding Washington's passing game (including Terry McLaurin) in rookie QB Dwayne Haskins' 1st start. QB Josh Allen and WR John Brown remain fine plays on the Buffalo side. We'd try not to use either K in this game.
Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. Between the hammy and likely shadow coverage from CB Stephon Gilmore, we’d try to not use McLaurin in Week 5 fantasy lineups.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Washington rookie WR Terry McLaurin "has a much better chance at playing today" than he did last week. The team will reportedly evaluate his readiness in pregame workouts. We'd try not to use McLaurin in a terrible matchup with the hamstring issue, but it sounds like he'll be available if you need him. Check back when inactives are announced.
Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) is a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Patriots after a limited week of practice. Between the hamstring, a matchup with CB Stephon Gilmore and Washington's QB problems, McLaurin is better off on fantasy benches for Week 5.
Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. The rookie was reportedly a game-time decision before getting scratched last week. So, barring a setback, we're expecting him to return for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Giants. His pre-game warmup evidently didn’t go well enough. We’ll see if the rookie can get back for Week 5. McLaurin’s absence leaves Paul Richardson and Trey Quinn as Washington’s top 2 WRs. Both guys are lower-end fantasy considerations in today’s plus matchup.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) is a game-time decision but that the team is "optimistic" he'll play against the Giants. "Source said it’s just a minor ailment," Rapoport adds. Even minor hamstring injuries can be susceptible to aggravation, so consider McLaurin a risk/reward Week 4 fantasy play.
Redskins insider JP Finlay hears that WR Terry McLaurin "should play" against the Giants on Sunday. "Hamstring injury described as minor pull and holding him out of practice was precautionary," Finlay tweeted. We'll get McLaurin's game status by noon ET Sunday. But the hammy issue adds some risk even if he ends up active.
Redskins WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Giants. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and didn't practice on Friday. That's not a good look -- but HC Jay Gruden said Friday afternoon that McLaurin is a game-time decision. We'll find out his official status by noon ET Sunday. If active, he'll be a risk/reward fantasy play. If he's out, WR Paul Richardson will get a boost.
Redskins WR Terry McLaurin was added to Thursday's injury report as limited with a hamstring. We don't have any other details on his status right now. Check back tomorrow for another update. McLaurin has been excellent through 3 weeks and has a juicy matchup against the Giants on Sunday.
Redskins insider JP Finlay "wouldn't be shocked" if WR Josh Doctson was cut before Week 1. "What I can tell you from sources, they've tried to trade Doctson for two years. They haven't been able to trade him," Finlay said. "The athletic ability is there, but it never all comes together. I wouldn't be shocked if Josh Doctson gets cut when they go down to 53. I don't expect it to happen, but Jay Gruden and the front office made a big proclamation when they didn't pick up that [5th-year] option." Finlay went on to say that Paul Richardson, Trey Quinn and Terry McLaurin are all ahead of Doctson on the depth chart. Doctson is obviously off the redraft radar, and his dynasty stock continues to sink.
Redskins WR Terry McLaurin was held out of the team's 2nd preseason game with a tailbone injury, HC Jay Gruden said. Gruden didn't provide any more information on the injury or how long McLaurin will be sidelined. The rookie had been enjoying a strong camp and is reportedly in the mix for a starting job. We'll see when he's able to get back on the field.
Redskins HC Jay Gruden gushed about rookie WR Terry McLaurin in a recent interview with The Athletic's Ben Standig. “I think the addition of Terry has been a wow factor for me personally and I think everybody who has seen him run on a daily basis,” Gruden said. “He’s powerful, he’s smart, and he’s physical. That’s a combination that’s rare. He’s been exciting.” As for WRs Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson, Gruden said, "both of those guys are doing fine." Standig projects McLaurin to be a Week 1 starter alongside Richardson and slot man Trey Quinn. We're moving McLaurin up the WR rankings (and Doctson down).
