McCain adjusting roles to suit Dolphins roster

The Dolphins are desperate for cornerback help, so much so that they’re working usual slot corner Bobby McCain on the outside, as Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald writes. During this week’s practices, Miami used McCain opposite No. 1 corner Xavien Howard, with versatile first-round defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick in the slot. McCain became of the NFL’s highest-paid slot corners after agreeing to a four-year, $27MM extension earlier this year, but if he can stick on the outside, the...

Veteran LB Junior Galette reportedly to visit Rams

It sounds like Junior Galette has another suitor. The free agent linebacker is set to visit with the Rams tomorrow, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.There’s been plenty of interest in the 30-year-old’s services, but he still hasn’t been able to catch on with a team. The Rams and Browns reportedly had interest in the veteran earlier this offseason, and the Raiders were considering a pursuit. We most recently heard that Galette could still return to the Redskins, where he had spent...

Saturday Slop: Recapping the Redskins week 2 Preseason win vs the Jets

A look at the top Redskins stories of the day

Notes from the Redskins 2nd preseason game | Fanspeak.com

The Redskins run defense has been a major concern the last few years, but they looked good giving up just 7 yards on the ground on 5 carries. This was obviously a small sample size, but this was a very promising start for the Redskins defense.

Redskins kicker Dustin Hopkins trolls ESPN over mistake

It’s preseason for everyone. On Thursday night, Washington Redskins kicker Dustin Hopkins put his team up 12-3 in the third quarter with a field goal.ESPN’s notification system let fans know about it, with a “slight” mistake.Rather than noting Hopkins’ kick was 28 yards, ESPN mistakenly wrote it was a 92-yarder, which of course is an impossible kick. Hopkins must have had someone send him this picture, because on Friday morning he had a bit of fun with it. For the record, the...

Redskins Vs. Jets - Studs and Duds

Mark Tyler gives you his Studs and Duds of the Redskins game against the Jets on Thursday night.

First of all, let me just say this was one hell of a boring game to watch. But second, we appeared to come out of the game with no major injuries - so that in itself was big.

My guess was that these two teams were sick of seeing each other after the week of joint practices, and just wanted it to end.

Below are my Studs and Duds of the game, followed up by some notes.

Redskins vs Jets Preseason: Byron Marshall being evaluated for lower leg injury

Anyone have any spare RBs?

The Redskins lost Samaje Perine earlier in the game with an ankle injury. He is questionable to return. Now Byron Marshall, who is fighting for the last spot at RB has left the game, and is being evaluated for a lower leg injury.

And we all know that Derrius Guice was lost for the season a week ago with a torn ACL. The Redskins RBs are getting banged up early and often. Hopefully both of tonight's injury are minor.

RB Byron Marshall is being evaluated for a...
