CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler believes Redskins third-round rookie Kendall Fuller "will emerge" as the slot corner.

Fuller was fully cleared in his return from microfracture surgery in May and will be ready to compete for a role in training camp. Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland are locked in as the starters, but the Redskins are still looking for a No. 3. Fuller will have to beat out undrafted sophomore Quinton Dunbar for the job.

The Washington Post's Mike Jones left seventh-round RB Keith Marshall off his 53-man roster projection.

Jones has Matt Jones, Chris Thompson, and Mack Brown making the final roster, but he acknowledged it is possible the Redskins keep four running backs. A 219-pound back with 4.31 wheels, Marshall's college career was sidetracked by an ACL injury as a sophomore, and he dealt with hamstring issues during the offseason program. Marshall has a ton of athletic upside, but he needs to stay healthy through training camp.

CSN Mid-Atlantic expects Redskins ILB Mason Foster to start opposite Will Compton.

Perry Riley was expected to occupy one of the starting spots, but he was held out of spring practices because of a lingering foot injury. That opened the door for Compton and Foster to cement themselves in starting roles. Set to count $5.05 million against the cap in the final year of his deal, Riley could end up a cap cut if he is not able to claim a starting job.

ESPN's John Keim reports the Redskins "loved how [Jamison] Crowder looked" in the offseason program.

Keim thinks the sophomore will continue to have a role in three-wide sets despite the presence of first-round pick Josh Doctson. That will likely be true early, especially with Doctson missing time with Achilles' and foot injuries, but Crowder is at best the No. 4 passing-game option either way. A low point-per-target player with limited touchdown upside, Crowder does not need to be drafted in standard leagues.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports contract negotiations between the Redskins and franchise-tagged QB Kirk Cousins are "going nowhere."

Breer reports both sides expect Cousins to play out 2016 under the terms of the franchise tag, which would pay him $19.95 million. Likely thinking he will be in an even better negotiating position this time next year, Cousins has little reason to accept a cut-rate deal before the July 15 deadline, and Washington likely wants to see him do it again before they shell out franchise-quarterback money. No matter how grim it looks in June, these deals usually get done at the deadline, but it would not be surprising if Cousins played out the season under the tag.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler said ILB Will Compton is written "in Sharpie" at the top of the depth chart.

Compton started the final nine games last season including the playoffs, but he was a liability in run defense. He should enter this season as a starter, but he will need to take a big step forward to nail down a full-time role. Perry Riley and Mason Foster will vie for the other starting spot. Rookie Su'a Cravens could emerge as the team's primary sub-package inside linebacker.

ESPN's John Keim reports the Redskins have "(seen) what they wanted" from Matt Jones this spring.

Per Keim, the "sense" is that the Redskins will be much better off at running back than they were in 2015 if Jones "performs this season the way he has practiced this spring." Jones spent most of the offseason working on fundamentals, like taking handoffs and better ball security. He's being set up for success, but it's not a guarantee it will come. He's a risk/reward RB2.

ESPN's John Keim reports second-year slot receiver Jamison Crowder has "left folks at Redskins Park excited."

Per Keim, Crowder has "looked decisive and explosive in his routes," and the Redskins will be "reluctant" to remove him from three-receiver sets because of how good he's looked. Removing Crowder is a question because first-rounder Josh Doctson is joining DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in the Redskins' receiver corps. Crowder has also drawn praise from Kirk Cousins. With so many other mouths to feed in D.C., Crowder probably won't be a weekly WR4.

Josh Doctson (Achilles) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Doctson missed most of OTAs and all of minicamp, but the Redskins aren’t concerned about him falling behind. "Doctson will be fine," WRs coach Ike Hilliard said. "I’m not worried about him. He can spit out [all the terminology]. He’s going to be real good." Doctson will compete for the No. 3 role behind DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon when he gets cleared.

Redskins ILB Perry Riley (foot) will be ready for training camp.

Riley has been shut down since December. He shed his walking boot last week and is on track for a late July return. OLB Junior Galette (Achilles) is also expected to be cleared for camp.
Jun 16 - 9:16 AM

Redskins TE Derek Carrier (knee) isn't expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Carrier tore his ACL and MCL in Week 14 last season and remains in question for the start of the season. It's possible he opens the year on reserve/PUP.
Jun 15 - 2:08 PM

Jordan Reed is sitting out minicamp after suffering an ankle injury last week.

It shouldn't affect Reed's camp status, but any injury news is unwelcome for a player with Reed's history. It's a reminder of the TE1's fragility. Signed to a five-year, $46.5 million extension last month, Reed has missed 14 games in three years, though he made a career-high 14 appearances in 2015.
Jun 14 - 2:24 PM

Redskins first-round WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') still isn't practicing.

He's sat out the last three weeks with a left Achilles' injury. Coach Jay Gruden is calling it tendinitis. Doctson's lack of progress is a little concerning, though we're guessing the Redskins are just being extra cautious with their top rookie. The real test will come when training camp opens.
Jun 14 - 1:01 PM

Kirk Cousins said there has been "no progress to speak of" in contract negotiations.

Franchise tagged in March, Cousins and the Redskins have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal. While the two sides might not have made much headway to this point, these deals usually go down the deadline, and Cousins appeared to acknowledge that reality. "July 15th will be a determining day," he said. "So stay tuned." We will Mr. Cousins.
Jun 11 - 11:10 AM

Coach Jay Gruden said third-year WR Ryan Grant has had a "great camp" at OTAs.

Gruden noted Grant's crazy work ethic and precise route-running chops. With Josh Doctson (foot) and DeSean Jackson (voluntary) sitting out practices, Grant has been getting increased reps with the first- and second-team offenses. He's expected to open the season as Washington's No. 5 receiver.
