Cap case starts today but decision will take time

Many Redskins fans have pointing towards today, May 10, for several weeks. There will be a hearing of the Redskins and Cowboys appeal of the salary cap penalties of 36 million and 10 million, respectively, handed down by the NFL in March.It doesnt look like there will be much going on today. According to Albert Breer of NFL.com, the two sides in the dispute will meet with arbitrator Stephen Burbank in Philadelphia but todays meeting will be small.So small, in fact, that Dan Snyder and Jerry Jones are not expected to be in attendance. It appears that the hearing today will be more procedural and that the two sides presenting their cases will come at a later date.The wheels of justice turn slowly. There will not be a resolution to this anytime soon. My advice would be to enjoy the spring weather, ponder the future of Chris Cooley and debate whether or not Josh LeRibeus will have an impact this year. A ruling will come sometime during the summer, probably in late June or July. Any decision that comes quickly, in fact, is likely to be bad news for the Redskins as it likely would be Burbank throwing the case out.

Breeland leaves game with apparent leg injury

Breeland leaves game with apparent leg injury

In the opening minutes of the Redskins game in New York cornerback Bashaud Breeland left the field with what appeared to be an injury to his right leg. Redskins PR announced Breeland as questionable to return with a lower leg injury.

As Breeland left the field, he was assisted by trainers and seemed to be putting little weight on his right leg.

The injury came on the Giants second possession of the game, where they would end up scoring a touchdown. The Redskins defense forced a Giants three and out to open the game but then Washington fumbled the punt and New York regained possession. 

It was an ominous start for the 0-2 Redskins, as New York quickly produced points off the turnover. Also an ominous start for Breeland, who despite a great training camp and preseason has struggled through two games for Washington.

This is the first time any members of the Redskins made a gesture during the anthem, a recent movement that has come under heavy criticism.
