Hall of Fame cornerback Darrell Green had the speed to be a great wide receiver except for one thinghe had bad hands. Green had 54 career interceptions but he probably dropped at least that many over the course of his 20-year NFL career.His son Jared delivered his Hall of Fame induction speech and he inherited some of his fathers speed. He recently ran a 4.38 40-yard dash, fast but still a couple of ticks slower than Darrell. Jared also inherited his dads hands.Unfortunately, Jared is a wide receiver and that makes him a long shot to make the Carolina Panthers roster.Green caught 35 passes in three years at Virginia and 17 more playing at Southern last year. His speed is impressive but his ability to catch the ball and run patterns need a lot of work.His chances of making the Panthers are slim but teams will often give a look to someone with speed. There is always a chance of teaching route running and to coach techniques for catching the ball, but you cant coach pure speed.
Left guard Trent Williams was injured late in Washington's 20-17 loss to Detroit on Sunday, a development perhaps lost in shuffle of the Redskins' final drive as they attempted to tie or win the game.
Williams was helped off the field and brought to the locker room, where he was gingerly escorted by the team's medical staff to be examined further.
Late in the fourth quarter of their Week 7 game against the Lions, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins used his legs — yes, his legs — to give the team a go-ahead lead.
Trailing 13-10 with just over a minute remaining, Cousins kept the ball on a read-option play and ran 19 yards for the go-ahead score.

But the Redskins gave the Lions too much time to work with.
Matthew Stafford hooked up with former Redskin qide receiver Andre Roberts for a big play, then found Anquan Boldin, who fought his way across the goal line with under 20 seconds left.
With the 20-17 loss, the Redskins' four-game winning streak is snapped.
The team travels to London next week to take on the Bengals.
