Royster laments loss of PSU wins in tweet

The Redskins Evan Royster is the leading rusher in the history of Penn State, a program that has been the home to great running backs such as Franco Harris, Curt Warner, and Ki-Jana Carter.However, most other Penn State backs will have a better win-loss record than Royster, at least officially. That is because as part of the sanctions in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal the NCAA today vacated every win the program has had since 1998.So, even though Royster and the rest of his Nittany Lion teammates walked off the field with a win on the scoreboard 47 times from 2006-2010, their record is now officially 0-65.Royster recognized this as he tweeted out the following soon after the vacating of the wins was announced: Evidently he received some pushback on this, perhaps for some thinking that he was being self-centered and not thinking about the victims or others at the university who will be more directly affected by the sanctions. To that he had the following response:

MRI reveals Redskins' DeAngelo Hall has completely torn ACL

MRI reveals Redskins' DeAngelo Hall has completely torn ACL

A veteran and a leader for the Redskins defense, it appears DeAngelo Hall's season is now finished just three games into 2016.

Hall injured his knee in the first half of Sunday's game against the Giants. The play looked bad in real time and Hall looked to be in much pain leaving the field.

Somewhat encouragingly, Hall was spotted on the sidelines after the play he was injured on, though Redskins PR announced the safety would not return to the game.

In the moments following Washington's dramatic win, Hall told the media he believed his ACL was torn, certainly putting a damper on the jubilant scene.

Beyond Hall, the Redskins are waiting for further diagnosis on starting cornerback Bashaud Breeland as well as offensive linemen Shawn Lauvao and Kory Lichtensteiger.

Assuming Hall misses significant time, the Redskins will be forced to juggle their secondary, especially if Breeland also misses time. When Hall went out in New York, veteran Will Blackmon picked up much of the slack and played well.

Going forward, defensive coordinator Joe Barry can also look to players like Duke Ihenacho or Deshazor Everett for help. Ihenacho is an experienced NFL safety while Everett showed in the preseason he's not just a special teams player but can play safety at the pro level.

Beyond Ihenacho and Everett, the Redskins may also consider some playing time for rookie Su'a Cravens in the secondary. Drafted as a hybrid linebacker/safety, Cravens made a big-time impact in the win over the Giants and has proven he needs to be on the field a lot for Barry's defense.

Su'a Cravens channels Chappelle Show in perfect postgame tweet after Redskins win

Su'a Cravens had a monster game for the Redskins on Sunday, including an interception to seal the first victory of the season.

After the game, the rookie sent the perfect tweet. 

RELATED: WHAT WE LEARNED FROM THE REDSKINS' VICTORY

Cravens' tweet is an homage to The Chappelle Show, arguably one of television's funniest ever sketch comedy shows that aired on Comedy Central in the early 2000s.

The "Game...Blouses" is a hilarious h/t to a skit where Dave Chapelle played the late Prince, who schooled Charlie Murphy in basketball. Check it out below, but be warned the sketch includes explicit language and general lewdness. If easily offended, don't watch.

For the game, Cravens had three tackles and two passes defensed to go with his pick of Eli Manning on the Giants last drive. Cravens almost had a first-half interception as well, but he and safety David Bruton both went for the pass and neither came down with it. In just the third game of his NFL career, Cravens is proving well worth his second-round draft position, and off the field, proving he has star power too. 

No word on if post-game pancakes were served at Giants Stadium.
