Redskins placed RG Brandon Scherff on injured reserve with a torn pectoral, ending his season.
With LG Shawn Lauvao (torn ACL) also done for the year, the Redskins are going to have to dig deep on the interior. Tony Bergstrom will slide into one of the starting spots. The other is TBD. The No. 5 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Scherff has typically been solid but was having a down year, according to Pro Football Focus. He's under team control for one more season. Nov 5 - 3:24 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Redskins RG Brandon Scherff is believed to have suffered a torn pec Week 9 against the Falcons.

The injury would knock him out the rest of the season. Washington also lost LG Shawn Lauvao to what looked like a season-ending injury on Sunday, and LT Trent Williams is expected to miss a month with a thumb injury. These injuries are a major concern both for Washington's playoff hopes and Adrian Peterson's outlook the rest of the way.
Nov 5 - 10:36 AM

Redskins RG Brandon Scherff will undergo an MRI on his injured shoulder.

As will LG Shawn Lauvao, who was wheelchaired off the field with a knee injury Sunday. The Skins were already missing LT Trent Williams (thumb), who is slated to miss a month. Washington's running game went back in the tank in Sunday's loss to Atlanta and is suddenly a major question mark entering Week 10.
Nov 4 - 4:27 PM

Updating an earlier report, Redskins RG Brandon Scherff (knee) has returned to Sunday's Week 2 game against the Colts.

He missed a handful of snaps after tweaking his right knee early in the second quarter but was back in for the next series. Chase Roullier filled in at right guard during Scherff's brief absence.
Sep 16 - 2:11 PM

Redskins RG Brandon Scherff left Sunday's Week 2 game against the Colts with a right knee injury and is questionable to return.

He limped off early in the second quarter. Chase Roullier has shifted from center to right guard with Tony Bergstrom at center. A 2015 first-rounder out of Iowa, Scherff has represented the 'Skins in each of the last two Pro Bowls.
Sep 16 - 1:56 PM

The Washington Post expects RG Brandon Scherff to land a "lucrative deal" next offseason.

Scherff is signed the next two seasons, but his 2019 option is $12.5 million. The Redskins don't plan to extend Scherff at his current cost-controlled $705K salary but aren’t going to risk him playing out his contract year. A two-time Pro Bowler, Scherff should push for the $13.3M annually Jacksonville gave Andrew Norwell.
Jul 1 - 12:16 PM

Redskins exercised RG Brandon Scherff's fifth-year option for 2019.

This is as no-brainer as a move can get. The No. 5 overall pick in 2015, Scherff is one of the best young guards in the league and already has two Pro Bowls under his belt. Washington will likely look to extend Scherff next spring.
Apr 16 - 12:57 PM

Redskins RG Brandon Scherff (MCL) is expected to miss Week 8 against the Cowboys.

Trent Williams (knee) will also be unavailable for the Redskins, though Josh Norman should play after missing the last two games with a broken rib. Washington's offensive line is about as beat up as it gets with Scherff, Williams and Spencer Long all likely to sit in Week 8. None of this is good news for Kirk Cousins, who took four sacks in Monday night's loss to Philadelphia.

Redskins RG Brandon Scherff (MCL) has yet to be ruled out for Week 8.

Scherff has a Grade 2 sprain. Despite coach Jay Gruden's optimism, he seems likely to miss at least one game.
Tue, Oct 24, 2017 03:22:00 PM

Redskins RG Brandon Scherff suffered an MCL injury Monday night against the Eagles.

Scherff had his knee rolled into in the third quarter. The injury looked bad, but an MRI on Tuesday should tell the story. LT Trent Williams was in and out of the game all night while RT Morgan Moses sprained both of his ankles. Washington may need to find some offensive line help this week.

Redskins RG Brandon Scherff has a sprained AC joint.

Scherff got banged up in Sunday's loss to the Lions, but ultimately remained in the game. He'll probably be good to go for Week 8 against the Bengals.
Mon, Oct 24, 2016 03:10:00 PM

Coach Jay Gruden said it's "pretty safe" to say that No. 5 overall pick Brandon Scherff's long-term position is right guard.

Scherff was drafted to be Washington's starting right tackle, but the Redskins view him as a better fit on the inside. OL coach Bill Callahan wants to use Scherff as a Zack Martin-type interior pass blocker. Second-year OT Morgan Moses will bookend Trent Williams after playing just 131 snaps as a rookie.
Sat, Aug 15, 2015 04:15:00 PM

The Washington Post reports the Redskins are serious about potentially kicking No. 5 overall pick Brandon Scherff inside to guard.

Scherff has reportedly looked "more comfortable" at guard than tackle. OL coach Bill Callahan believes Scherff could make a Zack Martin-type impact inside. Martin, of course, was a first-team All Pro for Callahan's Cowboys last season. The idea is all good and well, but Morgan Moses would be a massive leap of faith at right tackle. It's too early to rule out Scherff bookending Trent Williams in Week 1.
Sat, Aug 8, 2015 11:15:00 AM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden says it's a "possibility" that first-round OT Brandon Scherff could begin the year at right guard.

Scherff has been penciled in at right tackle, but the Redskins may apparently begin the year with Morgan Moses opposite Trent Williams, kicking Scherff inside. A power blocker with huge hands, Scherff could be a mauler on the inside. We're still betting Scherff opens the year as Washington's right tackle.
Thu, Aug 6, 2015 03:54:00 PM

Redskins signed No. 5 overall pick RT Brandon Scherff to a four-year contract.

The Redskins' 10-man draft class is now under contract. The Redskins passed on USC DT Leonard Williams to select Scherff, who will slide in at right tackle as a bookend to stud left tackle Trent Williams.
