Aldrick Robinson 'ready to go full speed'

Aldrick Robinson passed all of the requisite neurological tests during an examination Wednesday afternoon and has been cleared to play Sunday against the Falcons.Robinson, the Redskins No. 5 wide receiver, also participated fully in practice Thursday, less than a week after being knocked unconscious for more than a minute during a pregame collision with teammate Brandon Meriweather.Hes ready to go full speed, Coach Mike Shanahan said after practice.Shanahan said he thought Robinson could have played in Tampa Bay, but NFL rules prohibited him from suiting up.Ill be honest with you, after talking to him after he went out, I thought he could have played that afternoon, Shanahan said. But it was one of those situations with the rules where you cant play after youre knocked out.He felt very good, never had any side effects, the coach added. Right from the start, he felt good that evening and the next day. You never know if hes going to pass the test for sure, but I felt like there was a good chance.

Jamison Crowder drops Giants special-teamer with obscene juke

Jamison Crowder drops Giants special-teamer with obscene juke

In a game as wild as Sunday's Redskins-Giants affair, where there was more storylines than Game of Thrones, some fantastic plays are forgotten. That's why this blog exists: To remind you of the fact that Jamison Crowder floored Dwayne Harris with one of the silliest jukes you'll ever see, in a move that should have Harris seriously considering retirement.

During the contest's second quarter, Crowder received a bouncing punt deep in his own territory. As the ball was hopping toward him, the second-year receiver was waving his arms in a "don't pick it up" motion, but eventually, he decided to.

Harris is wishing he hadn't.

After shimmying out of one New York tackle attempt, Crowder and Harris met on the sideline. It was here where No. 80 head-faked to the left then exploded to the right, and where Harris went flying into another dimension:

That right there is the Crowder Washington's front office was hoping they were getting as a punt returner coming out of Duke, and it was the first real flash from him in football's third phase. Harris, though, will remember the highlight as the sequence in which he realized the sport just isn't for him.

Quinton Dunbar did something Redskins haven't done since before Facebook existed

Quinton Dunbar did something Redskins haven't done since before Facebook existed

Quinton Dunbar had one heck of a day in New York on Sunday in the Redskins' 29-27 win over the Giants

Dunbar grabbed an interception and made a catch in the same game, something no Redskins player has done since Champ Bailey on Christmas Eve in 2000.

That was the last days of Bill Clinton's presidency, and four years prior to the invention of Facebook. 

Dunbar's impressive feat was not done in vain either. Both the catch and interception were huge plays for Washington, one bigger than the next, in a game that swung back and forth for four quarters. 

In the third quarter, Dunbar lined up as the gunner as the Redskins went to punt. Only the Redskins faked the punt, and Tress Way fired a pass down the left sideline to Dunbar. It was no easy catch either; Dunbar had to jump for the ball and had a defender right on him. 

Later, as the Giants were driving to extend their fourth quarter lead and deep in 'Skins territory, Dunbar made an excellent one-handed leaping interception. It was a very athletic play and gave Kirk Cousins and the Washington offense the ball on what would prove to be a scoring drive. 

In 2015 Dunbar proved his versatility to be a real asset for the Redskins. A receiver in college at the University of Florida, Washington flipped Dunbar to the other side of the ball to be a cornerback. As the 'Skins took off in the second half of last season, Dunbar came to be a integral part of the teams secondary. 

That same versatility showed Sunday in New  York, and now it has Dunbar's name next to Champ Bailey in the Redskins history books.
