Mathis Suffers Torn MCL, Out for Season

Despite a hard-fought win by the Commanders on Sunday, it wasn’t all sunshine. Rookie defensive tackle Phidarian Mathis suffered what appears to be a torn MCL . He will require season-ending surgery and was put on the injury reserve list.

Mathis was chosen 47th overall by Washington in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Mathis was a defensive star at Alabama. He was named a second-team All-American by the AFCA. He was also a team captain. He registered 126 tackles – 16 tackles for loss – and 9.5 sacks during his four-year career.

WFT Will Also Be Without Scherff And Six Assistant Coaches

The Washington Football Team has been flattened by Covid. While several players were reinstated yesterday, today saw the addition of Pro Bowl Guard Brandon Scherff, as well as six assistant coaches and a coaching intern.

Until now, the outbreak in Washington had been limited to just players. But perhaps not surprisingly given the level of outbreak amongst the players, the coaching staff has now been hit hard as well.

The team announced that the following assistant coaches are now on the Covid-19 list:

SNAFU: Redskins Make Some Injury Decisions – DeAngelo Hall Activated

The Redskins released some injury and roster news today, as usual, most of it no good.

As of now, Shawn Lauvao (stinger), Matt Ioannidis (hand), and tight ends Jordan Reed (hamstring) and Niles Paul (concussion) are all officially out for the Seahawks matchup. None of those four are that surprising, but what was surprising was that after finally stirring a bit last week against Dallas, Jamison Crowder was downgraded to out with his hamstring injury.

With five guys on the active roster out, that means that only two of the players currently listed as doubtful, questionable or probable can sit. The rest will have to dress to have the full 47-man roster.

The Redskins Injury Situation Has Officially Reached A Sublime State

Do you ever remember an instance where an NFL team couldn’t field a roster? That is exactly the situation that the WRedskins currently find themselves in, coming off a tough loss to the Cowboys this past weekend. Obviously the state of the roster drastically affects the Washington Redskins betting odds this week, and Jay Gruden added a few more critical names to the Redskins unavailable list on Monday at his press conference.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) was the most “marquee” player added to the laundry list of injuries this week, along with fellow tight end Niles Paul who is under the NFL’s concussion protocol after a scary helmet-to-helmet collision against Dallas. Promising defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis will undergo surgery to his hand and definitely will not be available for this week’s matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.

There are 53 players on an NFL roster – each week, the team is allowed to activate 47 of them. Right now, 13 of those 53 Redskins players are injured. The team is literally in danger of not being able to field a full football squad this week against Seattle. And that 13 doesn’t include Morgan Moses somehow, who is playing on two sprained knees.

Rookie Jonathan Allen Done For The Season

The staunch Redskins defense received some tough injury news yesterday – rookie defensive lineman Jonathan Allen is done for the remainder of the 2017 season. Allen suffered the injury in the second half of Washington’s 26-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Allen sustained a Lisfranc sprain, and although at first Redskins head coach Jay Gruden seemed optimistic about a quicker return, news broke yesterday from several outlets that Allen will require surgery, and is indeed done for the remainder of 2017.

The Redskins Must Show Consistency To Maintain A Good Run

On Sunday night, the Redskins put on a dominant performance against one of 2017’s most revered teams in the NFL. The Washington Redskins made the Oakland Raiders look overrated if nothing else; and a game many people unexpected to be a one-sided affair in Oakland’s favour, actually turned into a very lopsided 27-10 Redskins victory. Washington’s schedule doesn’t get any easier either, as this week they draw the undefeated Chiefs. Did last week’s improvement and performance translate in the online odds for the next Redskins game?

The win has forced many pundits to start re-examining the Redskins potential. They have shown tremendous improvement over the first three games and have shown that they can play with even the stiffest of competition. Washington stunned a prime time audience by limiting the “mighty” Raiders offense to just 128 total yards. They managed exactly zero third down conversions – 0 for 11.

The Redskins offense also spanked the Raiders – tallying up 472 yards – that’s a 344 yard difference in net offenses. Not only that, Washington crushed Oakland in time of possession – holding the ball for 38 minutes, compared to just 22.
