Redskins-Jags second quarter

Redskins-Jags second quarter

Note: --The CoveritLive software isn't working. Actually, there isn't enough bandwidth for it to work here at FedEx. I'm going to have to do this the old-fashioned way and update quarter by quarter or more frequently as events dictate. I'll try to get this worked out for next week but, hey, it's the preseason for all of us.

--You'll still be able to send me your questions via email at rich.tandler+jags@gmail.com

--A missed tackle on a third and long screen lets the Jaguars convert another such situation and they're on the march near the Redskins 20. I think it was Golston but I'm not sure.

--It is mostly second-teamers out there, but Montgomery and Golston, both of whom could start, just got split on a draw to convert a third and three.

Estandia 4 pass from Lemon (Scobee kick)
Jaguars 14, Redskins 0
11:19 second quarter

--Colt Brennan in at quarterback, along with a number of other offensive reserves. The starters will go into NY with a couple of miserable performances to think about.

--Marcus Mason, Maurice Mann and Brennan are firing up what was a very dull crowd. Two first downs and the Redskins are in Jax territory at the 28.

FG Suisham 46
Jaguars 14, Redskins 3
6:30 second quarter

--Ryan Boschetti did an excellent job of recognizing a screen. He did exactly what he was supposed to do, stop rushing the passer and to over to find the receiver.

--Chris Horton missed a tackle that let Washington get off a 29-yard run and Blades missed a tackle that let a runner go for some additional yardage as well. I can see the reserves being in the wrong spot or maybe not being quick enough to make a play, but when they are there, they need to make the tackle.

FG Scobee 30
Jaguars 17, Redskins 3
1:07 second quarter

--Well, it hasn't exactly been the offensive train wreck we saw last week, but it's certainly been ugly.

--A nice pass from Brennan to Marcus Mason picks up 16 yards. They're at their own 43, but only 12 seconds remain in the half.

--Unless I missed him, we haven't seen any of Malcolm Kelly. I thought he was supposed to get some solid playing time, maybe his knees weren't ready to go.

--Brennan sacked at the end of the first half by a blitzing Pierson Prioleau.

End of second quarter
Jaguars 17, Redskins 3

Final injury report: Three Redskins out for Sunday

Final injury report: Three Redskins out for Sunday



C Spencer Long (concussion)—He missed the second half of the Cardinals game and has been in the concussion protocol this week. John Sullivan will start in his place.

S Will Blackmon (concussion)—Blackmon also has been in the concussion protocol and has not practiced all week. Donte Whitner and Duke Ihenacho will handle the safety position.

DE Anthony Lanier (leg)—The reserve lineman missed the Arizona game with a leg contusion. Gruden said he was kicked in the lower leg against the Cowboys and the swelling is still an issue.


G Shawn Lauvao (groin)—It was a surprise to see him watching practice on Wednesday as no injury had been reported for him. But he came in for treatment and did not practice on Wednesday and Thursday. If he can’t go, Arie Kouandjio will start at left guard.

OT Ty Nsekhe (ankle)—Fortunately Trent Williams is back from his suspension; Nsekhe was the starter while he was out. If Nsekhe is out, Vinston Painter will be the swing backup tackle.

TE Jordan Reed (shoulder)—After missing last week’s game with a third-degree separation of the AC join in his left shoulder, Reed was able to practice on a limited basis this week. If range of motion is still an issue he could sit or play very limited snaps. If it’s a matter of pain tolerance he will be a full go.  

G Brandon Scherff (ankle)—He has been limited in practice during the week but it seems certain that he will go against the Eagles.

DE Chris Baker (ankle)—Baker missed some practice this week but he should be able to go against the Eagles although his level of effectiveness will bear watching.

Also questionable for the Redskins: DE Ricky Jean Francois (knee), OLB Preston Smith (groin), ILB Will Compton (hip), TE Derek Carrier (knee)



WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) and RB Ryan Matthews (knee) were full in practice all week and it seems likely that the Eagles’ leading receiver and rusher, respectively, will play on Sunday. Up in the air is the status of WR Dorial Green-Beckham (oblique), who missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

RT Halapoulivaati Vaitai (knee) will miss his third straight game. He had a rough start in his NFL debut against the Redskins in Week 6 but he remained the starter until getting injured in Week 11. Since then the Eagles have moved LG Alan Barbre to right tackle with Stefen Wisniewski going in at left guard.
