Redskins vs. Panthers full injury report: T. Robinson out, K. Robinson questionable

Redskins vs. Panthers full injury report: T. Robinson out, K. Robinson questionable

Injury report for Redskins vs. Panthers

Out

S Trenton Robinson—It appears that Robinson has been relegated to special teams duty. He didn’t play a snap on defense after starting at safety most of the season but he still contributes on special teams. He pulled a hamstring in the fourth quarter against the Saints and he did not practice on Thursday or Friday.

Questionable (50% chance player will play)

LB Keenan Robinson (shoulder)—If this was the NHL his injury would be described as “upper body” and in this case the meaning would be literal. In the last two weeks he has been limited in practice all week with injuries to his abdomen, ribs, shoulder, and neck. If he can’t go on Sunday, Will Compton will start in his place.

NT Terrance Knighton (migraine)—He has been free of symptoms of cluster headaches since missing the Patriots game but he did miss a practice this week to go visit a specialist. Barring a setback he should be good to go.

Probable (virtually certain will play)

CB DeAngelo Hall (toe)—Hall was limited in practice all but he was the same last week and played a little over a dozen snaps against the Saints, most of them at safety. His toe, injured in Week 3, is still hampering him to an extent but he is likely to go despite being limited.

CB Chris Culliver (knee)—His knee problems seem to be behind him, although he was limited in practice this week. Against the Saints he played 51 of the 58 snaps so he is good to go.

LB Ryan Kerrigan (hand)—His right hand is still healing from a broken bone he suffered during the Redskins’ Week 7 game against the Bucs. He played over 90 percent of the snaps against New England and probably could have against the Saints but he took off much of the fourth quarter with the score lopsided in the Redskins’ favor.

DE Jason Hatcher (Knee)—I detailed his program in a separate article last week. It seems certain he will play but his snaps could be limited.

Also listed as probable and full in practice all week are DE Chris Baker (ankle/rib), CB Bashaud Breeland (hamstring), S Dahson Goldson (wrist/hamstring), C Josh LeRibeus (elbow/shoulder), G Spencer Long (hip), RB Alfred Morris (rib), WR Andre Roberts (ankle), and G Brandon Scherff (thigh).

Report: One more potential defensive coordinator is off the market for the Redskins

Report: One more potential defensive coordinator is off the market for the Redskins

Well it looks like the name many considered to be the Redskins top choice at defensive coordinator is off the market. Adam Schefter broke the news of Gus Bradley to the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Redskins interviewed Bradley early in their process of selecting a new defensive coordinator. His latest gig ended poorly after he was fired as head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, but Bradley's best success came as defensive coordinator with the Seattle Seahawks.

When he served in that role with Seattle, Bradley worked with Scot McCloughan. And prior to his coaching stint in Seattle, Bradley coached in Tampa, where he worked with both Bruce Allen and Jay Gruden.

Those connections, and his success in Seattle, had many fans hoping Bradley would take over for Joe Barry, who Washington dismissed more than two weeks ago.

The connection between Bradley and the Chargers comes as no surprise, and it leaves    Washington still in need of a defensive boss.

Mike Pettine probably jumps to the top of the ranks of other coaches the Redskins have interviewed, but it still seems internal candidate Greg Manusky could be in position to move up to coordinator. Manusky spent the 2016 season as outside linebackers coach and has prior coordinator experience.

The Skins have also interviewed Dennis Thurman, last of Buffalo, Jason Tarver, last of San Francisco, Rob Ryan, also last in Buffalo, and John Pagano, last with the Chargers.

Report: Kevin O’Connell to be hired as Redskins QB coach, possibly signaling future moves

Report: Kevin O’Connell to be hired as Redskins QB coach, possibly signaling future moves

The Redskins are reported to have a new quarterbacks coach. Normally that is not news that moves the needle much but if the report proves to be accurate the move has some big implications for the Redskins coaching staff. 

First, about the coach. Kevin O’Connell was most recently an offensive assistant with the 49ers. Prior to that he was a quarterback who spent time with the Patriots, who drafted him out of San Diego State in the third round in 2008, Lions, Jets, Dolphins, and Chargers. He only saw the field the Patriots and he attempted just six passes. His addition as the Redskins’ quarterbacks coach was reported by Fox Sports.

Related: Redskins offensive coordinator resume: Matt Cavanaugh

The thing is, the Redskins don’t officially have an opening for a quarterbacks coach. The job is held by Matt Cavanaugh. However, the Redskins do need an offensive coordinator since Sean McVay left last week to become the head coach of the Rams. Moving Cavanaugh, who played quarterback in the NFL for 13 seasons before starting a 23-year career in coaching, to offensive coordinator, seems to be the logical move to make to many. 

If O’Connell’s addition to the staff does indeed become a reality, that would all but confirm that Cavanaugh is getting the promotion. Nothing is official until it’s official but this seems to be the way things are heading.
