Need to Know: Redskins stock up/stock down vs. Jets

Here is what you need to know on this Saturday, August 20, 14 days before the Washington Redskins cut their roster to 53 players.

Timeline

Today's schedule: Off day, no availability

—The Redskins last played a game that counted 223 days ago. It will be 23 days until they host the Steelers in their 2016 season opener.

Days until: Final roster cut 14; Cowboys @ Redskins 29; Browns @ Redskins 43

Stock up/stock down vs. Jets

Here are the players who excelled and those who stumbled against the Jets last night at FedEx Field:

UpRashad Ross caught four passes for 58 yards and two touchdowns. The second TD was a highlight reel catch as he fought the ball away from the defender in the end zone.

Down—Yes, quarterback Nate Sudfeld led the game-winning drive. But before that he had played the entire second half and had just eight yards passing before that drive. Good for him getting the job done at the end but overall his day was subpar.

UpMartrell Spaight was given a chance to start at Mike linebacker and he looked like he belonged with four tackles and a forced fumble.

DownSpencer Long was beaten by the Jets line too many times and he committed a penalty in the end zone that cost the team a safety.

UpDeshazor Everett made a pair of big stops on special teams and forced a fumble in the fourth quarter, a pay that prevented a Jets touchdown.

Down—With Matt Jones sidelined, Keith Marshall was unable to lay claim to the backup running back job. He had 10 carries for 26 yards, a 2.6 average.

Redskins activate TE Reed off of the PUP list

 

The Redskins have struggled on offense in the preseason. The good news is that they are getting one of their best offensive players back to work.

The team announced that tight end Jordan Reed has been activated off the physically unable to perform list (PUP). He was placed on the list at the start of training camp with a toe injury.

At first coach Jay Gruden indicated that the injury would be a short-term problem but as it turns out he spent 24 days on the PUP list.

Reed made the Pro Bowl last year despite missing a total of four games with a shoulder injury and with a concussion, He caught 66 passes for 686 yards and six touchdowns.

His removal from the list means that he can start practicing with the team immediately. Reed would be eligible to play in the Redskins’ preseason game against the Bengals next Sunday. However, given how cautious the team has been with his injury and his value to the offense it seems likely that he will not take the field for a game until the Redskins’ season opener against the Eagles on September 10.

WWE icon Jim Ross really loves Redskins running back Samaje Perine

WWE icon Jim Ross really loves Redskins running back Samaje Perine

Redskins fans don't quite know what they're going to get out of rooking running back Semaje Perine, but legendary WWE icon Jim Ross certainly does. 

Ross, a University of Oklahoma fan, saw a lot of Perine when he was a star on the Sooners.

Ross recently went on CSN to let the people know what, exactly, they were getting from the Oklahoma product. Here's the list of accolades, in no particular order, that Ross has for Perine:

- Restaurant quality running back

- tougher than a 2$ steak 

- a man's man

- all man (which is different than being a man's man, somehow)

- a yard wide (?)

You can see the whole thing here, with Ross coming in at the 1:22 mark.
