Trenton Robinson
News
Redskins offensive lineman Kory Lichtensteiger (stringer), defensive back Brandon Meriweather (chest), defensive back Trenton Robinson (ankle) and running back Darrel Young (hamstring), who were listed as probable on Friday's injury report, are active for Week 15 at Atlanta.
Bashaud Breeland
News
With the 102nd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins selected cornerback Bashaud Breeland from Clemson.

The 5-foot-11, 197-pound corner will give the Redskins some length in the secondary. Breeland enjoyed a breakout campaign at Clemson last year, totaling 74 tackles with five tackles for loss, two sacks and two forced fumbles in 13 games. Breeland lacks a bit of speed, clocking a 4.62 40-yard time at the combine.
Jerry Rice
News
Redskins receiver Jerry Rice tore the labrum in his left shoulder Thursday and will need surgery, coach Jay Gruden said, adding Rice likely will go on injured reserve. Rice fell on his shoulder trying to make a catch in the end zone.

The son of the Hall of Famer went undrafted out of UNLV before hooking on with the Redskins.

Injury
Shoulder - IR. Out for season
Duke Ihenacho
News
Redskins safety Duke Ihenacho was able to practice without limited Thursday and Friday, but is still listed on the injury report for Week 2 against the Jaguars as questionable. Ihenacho sat out the season opener, though that was mostly as a result of his lack of familiarity with the playbook after being claimed on waivers a few days prior. 
Kory Lichtensteiger
News
The Redskins have moved Kory Lichtensteiger to center after signing guard Shawn Lauvao this spring. The thinking is that Lauvao will play left guard, which is where Lichtensteiger used to play. 

"I'm excited about it," Lichtensteiger told ESPN. "It's one of those things I always excelled at, more so than guard. When I made that switch in college [at Bowling Green], it was my better years at football. For whatever reason my build, my ability is more suited to center. I look forward to snapping the ball, making some calls and hopefully taking my game to a higher level."

Redd worked the last few series in the blowout, after Roy Helu's knee injury. He rushed for 41 yards on 8 carries, including a 14-yard touchdown run to close out the scoring.

If Helu is forced to miss extensive time, Redd may see an increased workload moving forward. The Redskins take on the Eagles in Week 3.

Young was responsible for a few of the bigger plays in the game, as he picked up 19 yards on his lone run and hauled in two passes for 27 yards. His biggest contribution came on a first-quarter touchdown, as he lined up out wide and scored on a 20-yard reception.

Unfortunately, Young was the recipient of a late hit on a fourth-quarter reception that forced him from the game. The extent and nature of the injury was not revealed by the team.

News
Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss, quarterback Colt McCoy, cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring), linebacker Akeem Jordan (knee), guard Spencer Long, defensive tackle Frank Kearse and tackle Morgan Moses were all ruled inactive Week 1 at Houston.
Ryan Grant
News
Redskins wide receiver Ryan Grant played a surprisingly large role in the offense Sunday, in a 41-10 win over the Jaguars in Week 2.

Grants, who had no receptions in his NFL debut last week, was second on the team with eight targets Sunday. He hauled in five of those passes for 57 yards in the win.

Grant was targeted all eight times by Kirk Cousins in the game, who took over following Robert Griffin's ankle injury. He will try to build on Sunday's performance when they take on the Eagles in Week 3.  

Pierre Garcon
News
On a day when everything was working for the Redskins, wide receiver Pierre Garcon had trouble getting going in a 41-10 win over the Jaguars in Week 2.

Garcon was basically a non-factor in the win, as he was targeted just four times, good for fourth on the team. He hauled in just one of those passes for 12 yards in the win.

Garcon appeared to have trouble getting on the same page as new quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is likely to remain the starter moving forward. He will look to bounce back in Week 3 against the Eagles.

Stephen Bowen
News

Shawn Lauvao
News
Redskins guard Shawn Lauvao is adjusting well to his new team, offensive line coach Chris Foerster said. Lavao came over from the Browns and is expected to start at left guard next to Trent Williams.

"He got better every day," Foerster said of Lauvao's work at mandatory minicamp and OTAs. "It was all new to him. He needs to get out there and play. He’s more of a practice guy; he needs to be out there doing it.

"Trent [Williams] can make a lot of guys look good when they play next to him. He’s doing a good job with Shawn teaching him how to do things and [Lauvao] made huge strides from voluntary minicamp."

Ryan Clark
News
The Redskins pass rush dominated the Jaguars in a 41-10 win in Week 2, as seven different players go to the quarterback.

Ryan Kerrigan led the way with four sacks in the game, while both Perry Riley and Jason Hatcher added 1.5 sacks. Brian Orakpo and Frank Kearse also added a sack each, while Ryan Clark and Keenan Robinson got into it with a half-sack each. The team took Chad Henne down 10 times in the blowout win.

News
A pair of offensive linemen for the Redskins are dealing with injuries, but could be able to play through them in Week 2 against the Jaguars.

Tackles Tyler Polumbus (ankle) and Trent Williams (shoulder) were both able to practice Thursday and Friday without limitation. Williams is probable for Sunday's game, while Polumbus is still considered questionable.

Keenan Robinson
News
The Redskins pass rush dominated the Jaguars in a 41-10 win in Week 2, as seven different players go to the quarterback.

Kirk Cousins
News
Redskins quarter Kirk Cousins was forced into action in Week 2 against the Jaguars following an injury to starter Robert Griffin III, and Cousins excelled in a 41-10 win Sunday.

Cousins entered the game in the first quarter and proceeded to complete his first 12 passes, including a 20-yard touchdown to running back Darrell Young on his second play. It was one of two touchdowns Cousins would throw in the win.

Cousins ultimately finished the game 22 of 33 for 250 yards and two scores, while being sacked just twice. Griffin was diagnosed with a dislocated ankle following the game, which should leave Cousins as the starter moving forward. The team's next game is set for Week 3 against the Eagles next Sunday. 

Kai Forbath
News
Redskins kicker Kai Forbath was able to take the field in Week 2 against the Jaguars, though a groin injury prevented him from kicking off Sunday.

He was well enough to serve as the place kicker, however, and had a perfect game in a 41-10 win. Forbath nailed both of his field goals, from 42 and 36 yards, and was also perfect on all five extra-point attempts in the game.

Washington's next game is set for Week 3 against the Eagles.

Tight end and seventh-round pick Ted Bolser has been cut by the Redskins.

Bolser caught just one short pass in the preseason.

Andre Roberts
News
Redskins wide receiver Andre Roberts stepped into a bigger role following DeSean Jackson's shoulder injury in Week 2 against the Jaguars, a 41-10 win.

Roberts hauled in four of the five passes thrown his way for 57 yards, good for second on the team. He had a 31-yard reception in the game, and added 59 yards on seven punt returns.

Roberts had just one reception in the team's opener, so it remains to be seen whether he can sustain this kind of performance. Washington's next game is set for Week 3 against the Eagles.  

Aldrick Robinson
News
Redskins third-year receiver Aldrick Robinson has always been a speedster, but this year he's harnessing that speed and paying more attention to detail, reports ESPN.com.

"He’s caught the ball well, and that’s something he didn’t do in 2012," said receivers coach Ike Hilliard, who coached Robinson two years ago before spending last season in Buffalo. "He’s always been a smart kid. Everyone knows his biggest asset is his speed. He’s playing more under control."

"He’s becoming a more complete receiver," offensive coordinator Sean McVay added. "He’s showing more route versatility."

Robinson, who had 12 catches in the final four games last year, said he feels now he can excel as more than just a deep threat. The praise he's getting is a good sign as he tries to stick on the roster.
