Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland believes he "can do something special this year."

"My confidence is riding high," he said. "I can put myself in the category of being the No. 1 corner in the league or in the top five." Breeland came on strong as a sophomore, and he could take another step forward opposite Josh Norman. DeAngelo Hall recently said this Redskins secondary is the best he's ever played with. With a duo like Breeland and Norman at corner, he may have a point.

Redskins LCB Bashaud Breeland (illness) is listed as questionable for Week 12.

He missed Friday's practice due to a fever. The Redskins lost RCB Chris Culliver (ACL/MCL) for the season on Thursday, and are reeling at cornerback again. It's bad news with an upcoming date against Eli Manning and Odell Beckham.

The Redskins are unsure if LCB Bashaud Breeland (hamstring) will be ready to return after the Week 8 bye.

Breeland has been playing hurt all season, and could need some extra time to get healthy. His loss would further thin an already ridiculously shallow cornerback corps.

CB Bashaun Breeland exited the Redskins' Week 7 win over the Buccaneers with a hamstring injury and did not return.

Breeland hurt himself while bringing down Doug Martin on a 49-yard run late in the fourth quarter. His tackle might have saved the game. Breeland has been banged up all year. Last week he suffered a knee contusion and the week before he was questionable with a bruised rotator cuff. Breeland logged 13 tackles in Sunday's win.

Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland is dealing with a bruised rotator cuff, and is questionable for Week 6.

Per ESPN's John Keim, the injury "makes it tough for Breeland to raise his arm above his shoulder." Breeland is an every-down player, one the Redskins' banged up secondary can ill afford to miss any time.

Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland was carted off with an MCL injury in Friday's training camp practice.

Breeland is expected to be out 4-6 weeks. He'll miss all of training camp, but has a chance to return following his one game suspension. With Breeland sidelined, DeAngelo Hall should open the season opposite Chris Culliver.

NFL suspended Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland one game for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

The suspension stems from Breeland's August 2014 citation for possession of marijuana on the campus of VCU. Breeland is expected to compete to start opposite Chris Culliver this season after going through an up-and-down rookie campaign. It's possible DeAngelo Hall could start Week 1 against the Dolphins and hold the job with Breeland coming in for sub-package snaps.

Redskins LCB Bashaud Breeland (questionable, knee) "moved around fine" in practice on Saturday.

Breeland suffered a knee injury during practice Friday. His MRI after practice came back clean, and he should be ready to go against the Vikings on Sunday. Breeland has been Washington's best corner the last two weeks.

Redskins LCB Bashaud Breeland's MRI came back clean after Friday's in-practice knee injury.

Per coach Jay Gruden, Breeland will be "good to go" against the Vikings "as long as it doesn't swell tonight," in reference to Breeland's knee. The Skins avoid a major scare with their promising fourth-round rookie, who batted away three targets intended for Dez Bryant in last Monday night's upset of Dallas.
Fri, Oct 31, 2014 02:42:00 PM

Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland hurt his knee in Friday's practice and is questionable for Week 9 against the Vikings.

He'll go for an MRI. Breeland is coming off his best game of his rookie season, when he held Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams to four catches for 52 scoreless yards on eight targets. If Breeland is forced to miss Week 9, Tracy Porter and E.J. Biggers would be the Nos. 2 and 3 corners behind David Amerson.
Fri, Oct 31, 2014 12:45:00 PM

Redskins rookie CB Bashaud Breeland will start in Week 4 against Giants.

Breeland is replacing DeAngelo Hall, who was placed on injured reserve. He'll start at left corner opposite David Amerson in base sets, with E.J. Biggers or Tracy Porter (questionable, hamstring) playing the slot in sub packages.

Redskins fourth-round DB Bashaud Breeland was cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession in Richmond, Va. on Monday.

Breeland was on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University and was stopped by a university police officer at 10:40 PM. He was issued a summons and will have a hearing on August 26. Breeland had pre-draft concerns due to "several run-ins with the law." It's not a good start to his NFL career. Breeland has been working as a second-team corner and occasional nickel back.
Wed, Aug 13, 2014 05:40:00 PM

ESPN Redskins blogger John Keim doesn't expect fourth-round pick Bashaud Breeland to see time in nickel packages this season.

Keim considers Tracy Porter the "clear" No. 3 corner despite missing OTAs with a shoulder injury. Breeland was used strictly on the outside during spring workouts and will spend most of 2014 backing up David Amerson and DeAngelo Hall. The Redskins have done little to improve their secondary this offseason and are hoping for upgrades in Porter and 34-year-old Ryan Clark. E.J. Biggers, Chase Minnifield, and Richard Crawford are also competing for roster spots.

Redskins signed fourth-round DB Bashaud Breeland to a four-year contract.

Breeland, the 102nd overall pick, projects as a free safety or No. 2 corner in the long-term at the NFL level. He tumbled down draft boards a bit due to off-field concerns. Breeland has plus size at 5-foot-11 3/8 and 197 pounds.
