Josh Wilson Injury Update: Mike Shanahan Says Washington Redskins' CB Was 'Woozy'

Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Wilson is "woozy" after taking a hit to the head in Sunday's victory against the New York Giants, coach Mike Shanahan said Monday, according to Rich Campbell of the Washington Times. Wilson will undergo tests on his head Tuesday.

It's unclear when specifically Wilson suffered the injury, though he performed well against New York, recording four tackles (all solo) and an interception of an Eli Manning pass to the endzone in Washington's upset victory.

On the season, Wilson has 56 tackles (43 solo), two interceptions, 15 passes defensed, and one fumble recovery. He remains a key part of the Redskins' defense, which ranks No. 16 in points allowed and No. 7 in passing touchdowns allowed.

Washington's next game is Saturday against the Minnesota Vikings. One assumes the team will release details on Wilson and his availability for that contest once the results of his tests come in.

NFC East Standings Update: Cowboys Have Tenuous Hold On First Place, Redskins In Fourth

With the Washington Redskins defeat of the New York Giants, it has pushed the 8-6 Dallas Cowboys into sole possession of first place in the NFC East division. The Giants loss hasn't totally knocked them out of the playoffs, but they now depend on lots of help and will need to win out. The Philadelphia Eagles hold at third place, but there's still a chance the Redskins can over take them and get out of the cellar.

NFC EAST STANDINGS

  1. Dallas Cowboys, 8-6, 2-2 Division
  2. New York Giants, 7-7, 2-3 Division
  3. Philadelphia Eagles, 6-8, 3-1 Division
  4. Washington Redskins, 4-9, 2-3 Divion
Oddly enough the Eagles have the best record in division play, being 3-1 in NFC East match ups. The Redskins close out the 2011 NFL season against the Philadelphia Eagles on the road, which could very well be a match up to determine who will be the cellar dweller in the East, something the Redskins have been for the past three seasons.

Josh Wilson Injury: Washington Redskins' Cornerback Not Available To Media Due To 'Head Symptoms'

Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Wilson was not made available to the media following Sunday's 23-10 win over the New York Giants due to "head symptoms," according to Nathan Fenno of the Washington Times. While nothing is confirmed, it looks possible that Wilson suffered a concussion in the victory.

It's not clear when the injury occurred. Wilson did stagger out of the game a couple times during the fourth quarter, but he also got a key fourth-quarter interception on Eli Manning in the end zone.

Wilson has been a key player in the Redskins' secondary this season. While he has not been quite as good as the man he replaced, Carlos Rogers, he did have one interception and 12 passes defended this season prior to Sunday.

Rex Grossman Week 15 Fantasy Update: Redskins Quarterback Has Two Interception Day Against New York

After a huge day against the porous pass defense of the New England Patriots, Rex Grossman came back down to the earth in the Meadowlands against the New York Giants on Sunday. Grossman finished the day with 15 completions for 185 yards in the Skins 23-10 whipping of the Giants.

Grosman threw two interceptions in the first quarter, including on a deep flea flicker attempt on the first play of the game. He did connect with wide receiver Santana Moss on a 20 yard touchdown, hitting Moss on a crossing route in the end zone to give Washington a 10-0 lead. But with two turnovers already under his belt, and a 17-0 lead, the Shanahans went relatively conservative and rushed the ball 40 times.

Jabar Gaffney Week 15 Fantasy Update: Gaffney Leads Washington With Six Catches Against New York

For the second straight week, wide receiver Jabar Gaffney led the Washington Redskins with six catches. He finished with 85 yards receiving on those six catches to lead the team in their blowout win over the New York Giants. Quarterback Rex Grossman was intercepted on two of the Redskins' first three possessions, but Washington managed to build a 17-0 lead in the first half. 

As a result of the lead and the ever-present threat of a Grossman turnover, the Skins would try to keep it on the ground, rushing 40 times to just 24 pass attempts. Gaffney, however, would add three more catches in the second half, including two 17 yard completions on Skins final scoring drive which made it 23-3.

Santana Moss Week 15 Fantasy Update: Redskins Wide Receiver Finds The End Zone For Second Straight Week

After sitting out a month with a hand injury, Washington Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss continues to try and finish the second half of the season strong. To the delight of his fantasy owners everywhere, Moss scored a touchdown for the second straight week on a 20 yard pass from Rex Grossman in the Skins dominating win over the New York Giants.

Moss was efficient and made his opportunities count, as the touchdown was one of just two catches on the afternoon. He finished with two catches for 40 yards, as the Skins built an early lead and made a concentrated effort to pound out the victory on the ground.

Roy Helu Week 15 Fantasy Update: Redskins Running Back Quiet In Washington's Blowout Win Over New York

Roy Helu has been a bright spot on the offensive side of the ball for the Washington Redskins in the second half of the season. He has made his fantasy owners happy on a weekly basis over the past month, but Sunday against the Giants the rookie running back had a relatively quiet day.

Coming off a career high game last week against New England, Helu rushed for just 53 yards on 23 carries against New York - that's an average of just 2.3 yards per carry. Helu added 3 catches for 16 yards through the air. It's surprising, and certainly disappointing to fantasy owners, that the running back would have such a quiet day - given the success he has had recently and the whipping Washington put on New York. Instead, little used fullback Darrel Young was the only ball carrier to find the end zone for the Skins.

Redskins Vs. Giants Final Score: Washington Plays Best Game Of 2011, Win 23-10

In a dominant 23-10 win over the New York Giants, the Washington Redskins played their best game of the season and dealt a crushing blow to New York's playoff hopes. Offensively the team moved the ball almost at will, and the Redskins defense intercepted Giant quarterback Eli Manning three times.

Though the team scored just two touchdowns, the offense piled up more than 300 total yards. Quarterback Rex Grossman completed a first half touchdown to receiver Santana Moss, and despite two interceptions, Grossman effectively managed the win for the Redskins.

The Giants, known for inconsistency at times, played awful in a game they really needed to win for a playoff berth. Manning threw some bad passes for interceptions and Giant receivers repeatedly dropped catchable passes.

Statistics from the game are slightly skewed by a late Giant touchdown drive against a mostly prevent Redskins defense. The game was largely out of reach by the time Ahmad Bradshaw scored for the Giants.

Redskins Vs. Giants Score Update: Giants Still Trail, 23-3, After Two Missed Red Zone Opportunities

The New York Giants have had their chances to get back into this game against the Washington Redskins, but have come up empty on two key possessions deep in Redskins territory. On the second of those two possessions, a penalty and an overturned touchdown conspired to keep the Giants down 23-3 with 8:51 to go in the game.

Eli Manning appeared to find D.J. Ware for a touchdown on third and goal from the two, but Ware juggled the pass on the goal line and the call was reversed. On fourth down, Manning found Hakeem Nicks in the end zone, but the play was nullified by a holding penalty. On fourth and goal from the 12-yard line, Ryan Kerrigan sacked Eli Manning and the Giants turned it over on downs.


The Giants were also down inside the red zone on a previous possession, but they couldn't put in a touchdown there either. Eli Manning was trying to find Mario Manningham on a fade route, but Manningham ran inside instead and Josh Wilson easily picked off the pass. The interception was Manning's third of the game.

Redskins Vs. Giants Score Update: Domination Continues, Redskins Lead, 23-3

Redskin fans expecting a letdown in the third quarter must be pleasantly surprised, as Washington kept the pressure on the Giants with two more field goals. The Redskins now lead the Giants 23-3 early in the fourth quarter.

Quaterback Rex Grossman has thrown for more than 170 yards while his counterpart Eli Manning only has 113 yards and two interceptions. Manning has become known for his fourth quarter comebacks this year, and he will have to muster three touchdowns to take back the lead.

The Giant running game has produced little, with Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs combines for under 70 yards. The Redskins defense has played well, avoiding the big plays that the team has given up in past games.

Devin Thomas Injury: New York Giants' Receiver Carted Off Field After Final Play Of First Half

There was a scary moment on an otherwise inconsequential final play of the first half between the Washington Redskins and New York Giants. Giants wide receiver Devin Thomas, a former Redskin, was carted off the field after suffering a serious injury on the play. His status remains unclear at this time.

Thomas was laying on the ground for 10 minutes, with about 15 team personnel looking at him. He was picked up off the ground on a stretcher and taken back to the locker room. It appeared that he was able to move his legs, but otherwise, it's not clear how seriously Thomas is hurt. The injury was so severe that the Giants' marching band, scheduled to perform at halftime, had to be cleared from the field because the cart was in the way.

Redskins Vs. Giants Score Update: Washington Dominates First Half, Leads 17-3

Statistics show the Washington Redskins dominating the New York Giants, and the scoreboard backs it up. Washington leads 17-3 at halftime in a game the Giants need to win for a playoff berth. The Giants tacked on a field goal by Lawrence Tynes at the end of the half to get back to that margin.

The Redskins offense have racked up 14 first downs, while the Giants have gained just six. Most of the Giants offense came on a drive late in the half that resulted in a field goal.

Washington quarterback Rex Grossman has thrown for more than 120 yards and a touchdown pass to receiver Santana Moss. Fullback Darrel Young added a touchdown, busting a six-yard run while overpowering the Giants linebackers.

Turnovers continue to be a problem for the Redskins. Grossman threw an interception on the first offensive play of the game and followed it up with another interception later in the game. Giants quarterback Eli Manning has thrown the ball well, but his receivers have let him down time a few times in the first half with drops. Manning threw an interception on a tipped pass, when Redskins safety Oshiomogho Atogwe made an impressive diving catch for the pick.

Redskins Vs. Giants Score Update: Darrel Young Touchdown Gives Washington 17-0 Lead

Just like everyone thought, the Redskins are up three scores on the New York Giants. Washington took a 17-0 lead after Darrel Young rushed for a six yard score.

The scoring drive was keyed by an Oshiomogho Atogwe diving interception that set up the Redskins offense inside New York territory. The offense relied mostly on their run game, alternating carries between Evan Royster, Roy Helu, and Young on early downs. On a critical third down, however, Rex Grossman hit Jabar Gaffney for 16 yards to set up a first-and-goal. From there, Young was able to cash in with the score, giving the Redskins a stunning 17-0 lead in the second quarter.

Expected to be a big game for the Giants, the home team has come out flat. If the Redskins can keep this up, they could deliver a huge blow the New York's playoff hopes.

VIDEO: London Fletcher, Oshiomogho Atogwe Combine On Incredible Interception For Washington Redskins

The Washington Redskins currently lead the New York Giants, 17-0, and that lead grew from 10-0 after London Fletcher and Oshiomogho Atogwe combined on a phenomenal interception. Fletcher deflected Eli Manning's pass up in the air with his back turned to the throw, and Atogwe dove to secure it and managed to get both hands under the ball for the pick. Here's the play in video form.


As you can see in the video, Manning seemingly had running back D.J. Ware deep and delivered a beautiful pass to him. It should have been completed. Instead, Fletcher sprinted with his 36-year old legs, put his arm in the air just in time and dislodged the ball, popping it up in the air. From there, all that had to happen was Atogwe making a diving catch for the pick.

Redskins Vs. Giants Score Update: Santana Moss Touchdown Gives Redskins 10-0 Lead

Despite two interceptions from quarterback Rex Grossman, the Washington Redskins lead the New York Giants, 10-0 early in the second quarter after Grossman found Santana Moss for a 20-yard touchdown. Washington dominated time of possession in the first quarter, and the Giants offense has generally sputtered.


Grossman connected with Moss for the touchdown after a long drive that saw contributions from rookie running backs Roy Helu and Evan Royster. Grossman made some good throws when not turning the ball over.

Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan appears to be pulling out all the tricks from his playbook, as the team has already run a flea-flicker, double reverse and other reverses. The Washington defense has slowed the Giants high-octane offense, though a drop on a deep Eli Manning pass from receiver Hakeem Nicks probably cost the Giants a touchdown.

Giants Vs. Redskins Injury Report And Inactive List: Jammal Brown Out, Justin Tuck In

The injury report and inactive list for this Week 15 game between the Washington Redskins and New York Giants is now out, and there are few surprises.

For the Redskins, offensive lineman Jammal Brown and fullback Mike Sellers are inactive as expected.

Here are the complete inactive lists for both teams. The Redskins only have 52 roster spots filled after LaRon Landry was placed on injured reserve, so they have six players inactive instead of the usual seven.

Washington Redskins inactives: OT Jammal Brown, FB Mike Sellers, RB Ryan Torain, WR David Anderson, LB Markus White, DE Kentwan Balmer.

New York Giants inactives: OL David Baas, DL Osi Umenyora, LB Mark Herzlich, LB Travis Beckum, S Derrick Martin, DT Jimmy Kennedy, OT James Brewer.

Justin Tuck Injury Update: New York Giants' Star To Play Vs. Washington Redskins

It looks like the Washington Redskins will have to deal with New York Giants star defensive lineman Justin Tuck on Sunday. Tuck had been a game-time decision for Sunday with a toe injury, but coach Tom Coughlin told NFL Network's Albert Breer that Tuck will play.

Tuck had missed practice early in the week with the injury, but did participate in a limited basis on Friday. Coughlin told Breer that Tuck had improved over the course of the week.

Tuck has three sacks in nine games this season, as he's dealt with a number of nagging injuries throughout the year. Still, he is among the best defensive linemen in football, so the patchwork Redskins' offensive line will have their hands full.

Roy Helu Fantasy Projection: Redskins Rookie Looks For Fourth Straight 100 Yard Rushing Day

Washington Redskins rookie running back Roy Helu has had an impressive three week run, gaining at least 100 yards in each contest, making fantasy owners very happy as the playoffs come around. In those three games, Helu has amassed 334 yards on 73 carries, along with 13 receptions for another 102 yards, scoring two touchdowns. Last week, Helu was a workhorse, carrying the ball 27 times for 126 yards against the New England Patriots.

Well, don't expect the Helu train to slow down Sunday when the Redskins travel to East Rutherford, NJ to take on the New York Giants. The Giants have the league's No.22-ranked rush defense, and New York has given up, on average, 465 yards and 35 points per game since Week 11.

The fantasy football projection site numberFire ranks Helu as the sixth best option at running back this weekend. The Washington RB's projected stats: 15.98 car, 72.47 yds, 4.02 rec for 31.08 yds, 0.46 TDs for 13.26 points.

For the season, Helu has rushed 124 times for 582 yards and two touchdowns. The rookie from Nebraska has also caught 44 passes for 315 yards.

Rex Grossman Fantasy Projection: Can Redskins Quarterback Continue His Success Against Giants?

Rex Grossman and the Washington Redskins head to MetLife Stadium on Sunday, looking to spoil a division rival's playoff bid, and Grossman's arm will play a huge role. The Redskins signal caller has enjoyed success in his career against the Giants, and Sunday should be no different.

New York has allowed 121 points and 1,498 yards in its past three games. The Giants have the 29th-ranked pass defense in the league and have surrendered 17 touchdown receptions in the past six weeks. Grossman has already defeated New York this season, throwing for 305 yards and two touchdowns in the opener. In fact, three of Rex Grossman's six biggest passing yardage days have come against the New York Football Giants.

The fantasy football projection site numberFire ranks Grossman as the 13th best option at quarterback this weekend. The Washington QB's projected stats: 20.42/32.60, 222.72 yds, 1.34 TDs, 0.88 INTs for 14.83 points.

Washington Redskins Injury Report, Week 15: London Fletcher, Donte Stallworth Among Probables

Five players are probable for the Washington Redskins ahead of their game against the New York Giants on Sunday according to the team's injury report.

Defensive end Stephen Bowen (knee), safety Reed Doughty (rib), linebacker London Fletcher (ankle), punter Sav Rocca (left ankle) and wide receiver Donte Stallworth all earned probable status after being limited in practice on Thursday. Of the group, only Fletcher was limited in practice on Friday.

Tackle Jammal Brown (groin) and fullback MIke Sellers (elbow) did not practice Friday and have been ruled out for Sunday.

Elsewhere on the injury front, head coach Mike Shanahan addressed the status of safety LaRon Landry, placed on injured reserved Thursday with recurring injuries to his Achillies and groin. Asked why Landry isn't undergoing surgery immediately, Shanahan said the team and player are exploring their options.

"Well, I think what he’ll do is talk to whoever he’s going to talk to, get a couple more opinions and then make a decision very quickly," Shanahan said to Redskins public relations. "I think the sooner the better for him, whatever it is."

Jammal Brown Injury: Washington Redskins' RT Out For New York Giants Game

The Washington Redskins will have to face the New York Giants this Sunday without starting right tackle Jammal Brown, coach Mike Shanahan announced Friday, due to an injury to his right groin. Brown initially suffered the injury against the San Francisco 49ers on Nov. 6, and then re-aggravated it last Sunday while warming up to play the New England Patriots. He did not take the field in that game, leaving the Redskins--who had deactivated backup center Erik Cook prior to the game--scrambling to address Brown's unexpected absence.

According to Shanahan, Tyler Polumbus will start in Brown's place against New York. Willie Smith and Sean Locklear will share left-tackle duties. Washington signed Polumbus as a free agent on Nov. 9, just two weeks after the Seattle Seahawks released him. Polumbus played under Shanahan for one season with the Denver Broncos.

Kickoff for Washington's game against the Giants is set for Sunday, Dec. 18, at 1 PM. FOX has the telecast.

Washington Redskins Injury Report, Week 15: Donte Stallworth Returns To Practice

The Washington Redskins welcomed wide receiver Donte Stallworth back to practice on Thursday ahead of their game with the New York Giants this weekend after Stallworth missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury. And though he remains limited in practice, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan likes what he brings to the Redskins' offense.

"I just like the power he plays with and his aggressive hands," Shanahan said, via Redskins public relations. "He doesn’t catch it looking for a place to fall. He’s trying to get up the field. That’s something we need and gives us a chance to make a play."

Three other Redskins missed practice on Thursday: tackle Jammal Brown (groin), fullback Mike Sellers (elbow) and safety LaRon Landry (groin/achillies).

Redskins Vs. Giants: DeJon Gomes Will Start At Safety For Rest Of Season

The Washington Redskins will take a nice leisurely drive up I-95 this weekend on their way up to Secaucus, New Jersey for a matchup with the New York Giants. The Redskins don't have a ton to play for, except for maybe draft position, and even then they might want to lose. So this would be a good time to take a look at some of the younger players and see what you have.One of the players that is going to get a long look is DeJon Gomes, who appears to be starting at safety for the rest of the year.

It was later clarified in a second tweet by Rick Maese that Gomes will in fact being playing strong safety, but it will be in place of LaRon Landry, not Atogwe. That means that Landry could be out for the rest of the year, although at this point that isn't entirely clear.

New York Giants Injury Report, Week 15: Seven Players Miss Practice

The New York Giants hit the practice field today rather banged up, in preparation to take on NFC East rival the Washington Redskins.

C David Baas (neck), TE Travis Beckum (knee), RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), LB Mark Herzlich (ankle), S Derrick Martin (back)

Washington Redskins Injury Report, Week 15: LaRon Landry Misses Practice Again

The Washington Redskins hit practice field today to prepare for their NFC East match up with the New York Giants.  The Redskins were missing four players from practice however, including starting safety LaRon Landry, who's still dealing with a groin and Achilles injury. "Even if he does come back, what speed can he practice at? What speed can he play at? Usually when a guy comes back after being away for a week or two weeks, it takes a little time to get back in football shape and play in a game. If he does come back tomorrow, we'll see how he practices and if he can suit up for the weekend," head coach Mike Shanahan said after practice. Three other players missed practice:

OT Jammal Brown (groin), FB Mike Sellers (elbow), WR Donte Stallworth (illness/ankle)

The Redskins also had four players limited in practice, including linebacker London Fletcher, who is dealing with an ankle injury.

S Reed Doughty (rib), P Sav Rocca (ankle), DE Stephen Bowen (knee)
