Outlook

The Redskins will be better than last season but that isn't saying much. The new offense should help, though, and the defense is making strides after some down seasons. We still aren't sure if they are a playoff caliber team just yet but getting closer. A lot of the success of the team might hinge on the development of Robert Griffin, who looked tentative in his return from ACL surgery last season. He obviously can be a difference maker if all is right with him.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Tight end Jordan Reed had his rookie season cut short because of concussion issues but was playing at a high level before the injury. He'll get his chance for a breakout year this season. He is healthy once again and will start from day one. Reed is a top target in this passing game and does a great job of making plays downfield at the tight end spot. He is becoming a legit No. 1 tight end for fantasy teams. Reed has the ability to get around 800 yards and eight touchdowns. He is the real deal at tight end and the Redskins should find plenty of ways to use him.
FANTASY DUD
We don't think DeSean Jackson will be a disaster with his new team but he might have a hard time repeating last season. Jackson has to compete with Pierre Garcon for targets, who is a clear favorite target of Robert Griffin, and learn a new offense. Plus, he might be under more pressure to perform after getting run out of town in Philadelphia. Jackson is a bit of wild card for the coming season. Don't forget he has less than 1,000 yards two of the past three seasons.

Team Notes

Jul 24, 02:42 PM Washington Redskins DT Jason Hatcher (knee) said he is progressing pretty quickly from a knee injury. I want to get back on the field, but I know I've got take precaution, Hatcher said. It's progressing pretty quickly. The trainers got a great game plan, so I'm just going to stick with it. Whenever they say I'm ready to go, I'm back on the field.
Jul 24, 10:22 AM Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's designed running plays might be 'few and far between,' according to head coach Jay Gruden. He still has the green light to scramble as the situation dictates. 'I feel good where he's at,' Gruden said. 'He made some serious strides just in the spring working in the pocket and delivering throws and pulling it down and running when he had to run. That comes naturally but also comes with a lot of reps and playing the position.'
Jul 23, 06:03 PM Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins DT Jason Hatcher (knee) will not participate in practice Thursday, July 24.
Jul 23, 04:53 PM Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins OT Maurice Hurt was placed on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list because he is out of shape.
Jul 23, 04:13 PM Washington Redskins OT Maurice Hurt was placed on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 23.
Jul 23, 04:13 PM Washington Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) was placed on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 23.
Jul 23, 01:53 PM Washington Redskins DE Stephen Bowen (knee) and DT Jason Hatcher (knee) will begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Jul 21, 06:43 PM The Washington Redskins have signed free-agent TE Mike Caussin (Bills). Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also waived LS Kyle Nelson.
Jul 21, 06:32 PM Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu Jr. is seen as a better pass catcher than RB Evan Royster by some of the coaches, which should help his chance to make the final roster.
Jul 21, 02:23 PM Washington Redskins CB David Amerson said he's feeling confident going into his second year in the NFL. Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said Amerson still has work to do, but he's proud of how far Amerson has come, saying the second-year player has the skills you look for in a cornerback.
Jul 21, 11:21 AM Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts has admitted since the signing of WR DeSean Jackson that he might have opted to go elsewhere had he known Jackson would be signed. However, Roberts might be one of the biggest benefactors of having WRs Pierre Garcon and Jackson, as well as TE Jordan Reed, in the offense.
Jul 21, 11:08 AM Washington Redskins WR Ryan Grant is likely to make the roster, in the opinion of Rich Tandler of ESPN Washington. Grant got praise from head coach Jay Gruden during offseason activities. He plays like a 10-year veteran already, Gruden said.
Jul 18, 10:02 PM Washington Redskins LB Brandon Jenkins may be on the roster bubble during training camp even though outside linebackers coach Brian Baker said Jenkins was the most improved player among the linebackers. Jenkins will have to show he can play well against the run and be more fluid in pass coverage. He likely will need to show he can contribute on special teams to have a decent chance to make the roster.
Jul 18, 08:12 PM Free-agent DT Adam Carriker (quadriceps) has recovered from his quadriceps injury and has been cleared to practice.
Jul 16, 04:23 PM Washington Redskins CB Richard Crawford (knee) could stick on the roster if the team believes he is fully healthy, in the opinion of Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington.
Jul 15, 08:23 PM Washington Redskins OT Tyler Polumbus could lose the starting right tackle job to OT Tom Compton or OT Morgan Moses if he struggles this season, according to Mike Jones of The Washington Post. Jones also said that team officials aren't solid on Polumbus as the long-term solution at right tackle.
