Terrell Stoglin's shot at being drafted came up snake eyes. Now the former University of Maryland will try his luck in Las Vegas, summer league style.Stoglin, the leading scorer in the Atlantic Coast Conference last season, will play in the Las Vegas Summer League as a member of the Toronto Raptors, according to a source familiar with Stoglin's plans..The 6-foot-1 scoring guard faced long odds when it came to hearing his name called in the two-round draft conducted on June 28. Stoglin declared for the draft after his sophomore campaign and after being suspended for one year by the university.Last season Stoglin averaged 21.6 points and shot 38.4 percent from 3-point territory.CSNwashington has also learned that former DeMatha product and Clemson star Jerai Grant will also participate in the summer league with the Houston Rockets. The 6-foot-8 power forward played for season for the Tigers and averaged 12.4 points and 6.7 rebounds as a senior during the 2010-1 campaign.
Redskins tight end Jordan Reed, who is in the NFL concussion protocol, has been cleared to return to practice, but he still has some hurdles to clear before being declared ready for game action.
During his Monday news conference Gruden said that Reed, who has missed the last two games with a concussion diagnosed two days after the team’s game against the Ravens on October 9, would practice with the team when preparations resumed on Monday.
However, that doesn’t mean that he will play on Sunday, when the Redskins face the Bengals in London. Reed still has to clear the concussion protocol and his participation in a game is subject to the approval of an independent neurologist.
Reed did participate in practice on a limited basis last Wednesday. But he was held out Thursday and Friday and was declared out for the game on the injury report.
So while the news that he will practice is encouraging as far as his chances of playing against Cincinnati it very much remains to be seen if it will happen.
It looked bad. Third quarter, Lions QB Matthew Stafford goes deep to wide receiver Marvin Jones with Josh Norman hanging on in coverage. Jones and Norman lept for the ball, Jones caught it, Norman's head whipped to the Ford Field turf.
Few were surprised when Norman stayed laying on the field, or when he was escorted directly to the locker room after the play by Washington's medical staff. Diagnosed with a concussion at the stadium, now things get tricky for Norman and the Redskins.
The NFL's concussion protocol requires a series of steps be cleared before a player can return to practice, then another series of steps to play in a game. So far this season, Su'a Cravens and Jordan Reed have sustained concussions for Washington, and neither player made it back inside a week.
Further complicating matters for Norman, the Redskins will practice at their Ashburn facility until Thursday before boarding an overnight flight to London for Sunday's game against Cincinatti. While there are obviously plenty of doctors in London, it's unknown if any are a part of the NFL concussion protocol and are able to clear Norman for the game should he be ready.
"Thursday he'll have to be cleared, otherwise we will have to play without Josh Norman," Jay Gruden said Monday.
On top of all that? How about A.J. Green.
The Bengals star wideout already has 775 receving yards on the season, and on Sunday posted one of the more ridiculous TD catches that will happen all season. It would be hard to envision a scenario where the Redskins staff would not match Green up against Norman.
That is, if the cornerback gets cleared.
