Redskins signed OT Vinston Painter.

Painter's only three career appearances came in 2014. The Redskins need a body with LG Shawn Lauvao banged up.

Redskins placed C Kory Lichtensteiger on injured reserve with a calf injury, ending his season.

John Sullivan has already been signed as Lichtensteiger's replacement. This will be the second straight year Lichtensteiger ends on I.R. He'll head into 2017 having appeared in 8-of-32 games since 2014. Now 31, Lichtensteiger won't be back at his $3.25 million salary next season, and probably won't be back at all.

Redskins signed C John Sullivan.

Kory Lichtensteiger has a season-ending calf injury, so Sullivan will slide in as the Redskins' immediate starter. Sullivan was one of the most durable players in the league from 2009-14, but missed all of 2015 with a back injury. He remained highly effective in 2014, but is now 31. He couldn't make it to final cuts in Minnesota. The pivot will remain a concern in Washington.

NFL Network's Mike Garofolo reports Redskins C Kory Lichtensteiger's calf injury could send him to injured reserve.

That's one serious calf injury. Lichtensteiger was also limited to five games by injury in 2015. The Redskins are working out free agent John Sullivan on Tuesday.

Free agent C John Sullivan is working out for the Redskins.

Kory Lichtensteiger could be headed to injured reserve with a calf injury. Sullivan was cut by the Vikings at this summer's first cutdown. He missed all of 2015 with injury.
Sep 27 - 1:26 PM

Redskins C Kory Lichtensteiger (calf) and LG Shawn Lauvao (ankle) are week to week.

That's not going to help the Redskins' stagnant run game. The Redskins are going to have to get creative for Week 4. Coach Jay Gruden said LT Trent Williams could play some guard, something Williams did last week.

An MRI confirmed Redskins FS DeAngelo Hall tore his ACL Week 3 against the Giants.

Hall seemed to be holding out hope he escaped without a serious injury Sunday night, but doctors always suspected a tear. Hall had looked good in his transition to safety, so his loss is a big one for an already thin safety corps. Hall is owed $4.25 million in 2017, the final year of his deal.
Sep 26 - 11:02 AM

Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland has a high right ankle sprain.

Breeland left Sunday's win over the Giants in the first few minutes and did not return. High ankle sprains tend to be multi-week injuries. The Redskins are very thin at cornerback and figure to now turn to third-round rookie Kendall Fuller in their nickel package alongside Josh Norman and Dashaun Phillips.
Sep 25 - 7:57 PM

Chris Thompson rushed six times for 23 yards in the Redskins' Week 3 win over the Giants.

Thompson lost seven yards on his only reception. The Redskins' third-down back isn't seeing enough passing-game volume to get on the standard-league radar.
Sep 25 - 6:50 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 5-of-7 targets for 59 yards in the Redskins' Week 3 win over the Giants.

Even with Josh Doctson sidelined, this is about Garcon's weekly ceiling. Jamison Crowder has taken what little remained of his value.
Sep 25 - 6:32 PM

Jamison Crowder caught 4-of-7 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 3 win over the Giants.

Crowder also added an electrifying 50-yard punt return. Crowder's score was a screen he turned into a zig-zagging 55-yard touchdown. One of his missed connections was a target from the four-yard line. Another, a long defensive pass interference penalty. Crowder isn't going away as a factor in the Redskins' receiver corps, and is quickly shaping up as a starter in PPR leagues.
Sep 25 - 6:28 PM

Jordan Reed caught 4-of-7 targets for 56 yards in the Redskins' Week 3 win over the Giants.

Reed bafflingly wasn't targeted with the Redskins near the goal line and needing to conserve clock near the end of the first half. One of his grabs was an absolute highlight-reel addition, but it was an otherwise quiet day. Reed has yet to score this season, but has 16 grabs on 24 targets. The touchdowns are coming.
Sep 25 - 6:25 PM

Redskins doctors believe FS DeAngelo Hall tore his ACL in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Giants.

Hall, however, stated that his knee "feels good," and he will wait for a Monday MRI to concede the rest of his season. The Redskins are thin at safety and could ill afford to lose Hall, who has successfully transitioned from cornerback.
Sep 25 - 6:10 PM

Matt Jones rushed 17 times for 65 yards in Washington's Week 3 win over the Giants, adding two receptions for 14 yards.

Jones ran better than his stats suggest, but it still didn't translate to fantasy value. He was checked for a concussion after a helmet-to-helmet hit, but missed only a play or two. Coach Jay Gruden pledged to get the running game going in the red zone this week, but the Redskins' only plays inside the Giants' five-yard line came in clock-conserving mode and while Jones was being evaluated. Volume will keep Jones in the RB2 mix against the putrid Browns in Week 4.
Sep 25 - 6:09 PM

DeSean Jackson caught 5-of-8 targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in Washington's Week 3 win over the Giants.

D-Jax proved he was over his ankle injury by running by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for a 44-yard score. Jackson suffered what looked to be another ankle injury late in the first half, but escaped with only a tweak or bruise. It's always a bit of a rollercoaster with one of the league's top deep threats, but Jackson is the owner of a 14/238/1 line through three games. He's firmly back in the WR2 conversation. He has a juicy Week 4 matchup with the Browns.
