Redskins Vs. Eagles Final Score Update: Redskins Lose 35-10, End Season 5-11

In a lost season, the Redskins ended the year in appropriate fashion with a 35-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The loss drops Washington's record to 5-11 for the season, a disappointing record in Coach Mike Shanahan's second year.

Twice in the second half the Redskins cut the Eagles lead to three, but after Eagles quarterback Michael Vick found receiver DeSean Jackson for a touchdown on a deep pass play the Redskins never recovered. From there, the Eagles tacked on two more touchdowns and the rout was on.

For Redskin fans looking for good news, take heart in backup running back Evan Royster's performance. The rookie from Penn State rushed for more than 100 yards and a healthy 5.5 yards-per-carry average. After Royster, and fellow rookie Roy Helu busting a long touchdown, there was little to cheer for from Washington.

There is always next year, and the Redskins will have a high draft pick to address desperate needs on both sides of the ball. Perhaps the team will tackle the quarterback position with its early pick.

Redskins Vs. Eagles Score Update: Michael Vick Bomb Puts Eagles Ahead 20-10

Just as the Redskins cut into the Philadelphia lead, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick found receiver DeSean Jackson for a deep 60-yard bomb to put the Eagles up 10 points. With most of the fourth quarter remaining the Redskins trail the Eagles 20-10.

Early in the fourth quarter Washington Redskins kicker Graham Gano booted a short field goal to make the score 13-10 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Redskins drive stalled in the red zone leading to the Gano kick.

It's been a tough day for Redskins running backs, as both Roy Helu and Evan Royster battle injuries. Fullback Darrel Young has been forced into a more prominent role and quarterback Rex Grossman continues to run the passing game.

Grossman has thrown for more than 240 yards with an interception and a touchdown. A second Grossman interception looked possible in the third quarter but referees ruled the pass incomplete.

Redskins Vs. Eagles Score Update: Redskins Score On Long Pass To Roy Helu, Eagles Lead 10-7

For a team desperately needing a big play, rookie running back Roy Helu delivered. Helu took a short screen pass from quarterback Rex Grossman for almost 50 yards before plunging into the end zone to make the score 10-7 Eagles.

Helu ran down the field limping as he is fighting leg injuries. The run looked inspiring and featured good down field blocking from Redskins recievers. Though Helu has had limited touches today with the leg injuries, he made this one count. For the game, Helu now has more than 50 total yards and the touchdown.

Despite some poor coaching and play in the first half, the Redskins are suddenly back in the game against the Eagles. Linebacker Brian Orakpo has two sacks and a forced fumble from Eagles quarterback Michael Vick but is now out of the game with a shoulder injury. Rookie Ryan Kerrigan will be forced to step up the pressure on Vick in Orakpo's absence

Redskins Vs. Eagles Score Update: Eagles Lead 10-0 At Half

Neither the Redskins or Eagles will take part in the NFL playoffs, and the play of each team today shows why. The Eagles hold a 10-0 lead over the Redskins at halftime, but neither team looks impressive in a low scoring first half.

The Redskins looked incredibly inept inside the last two minutes of the half. The team caught a break with an Eagle turnover deep in their own territory. It looked like the Redskins could do no worse than a feild goal, and maybe even a touchdown, before Santana Moss drew an unsportsmanlike penalty for removing his helmet on the field. Moss's penalty moved the Redskins from inside the 10-yard line to out past the 20.

From there, Washington quarterback Rex Grossman found reciever Jabar Gaffney for a completion. After the Gaffney catch the team had no timeouts remaining and the clock expired before the Redskins could get their field goal unit on the field. In a year of Redskin failures, this one stood out.

Defensively the Redskins have been able to put pressure on Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, though the Eagles have moved the ball throughout the first half. Vick found Chad Hall for a touchdown late in the second quarter to make the lead 10-0.

Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman extended his consecutive games with an interception streak on a deep pass to receiver Anthony Armstrong. The ball bounced of an Eagle defender straight into the air before Eagle safety Nate Allen hauled in the interception.

The Redskins had a chance to put points on the board earlier in the second quarter, but a Graham Gano field goal attempt was blocked. In a year with atrocious special team play, this game looks particularly poor from the Redskins special team unit. Two kick returns have been marred by penalty flags in addition to the blocked kick.

Redskins Vs. Eagles First Quarter Update: Redskins Trail 3-0

Neither offense looked particularly dynamic but the Philadelpia Eagles did just enough to work a 3-0 lead over the Washington Redskins at the end of the first quarter. The Eagle field goal came early in the first quarter from kicker Alex Henery.

The Redskins had an opportunity for points as quarterback Rex Grossman unloaded a deep pass to receiver Santana Moss, but Moss was unable to haul the pass in. An Eagle defender may have tipped the ball, but the pass dropped through Moss's hands in the end zone. Outside of that deep pass, the Redskin offense has looked mostly inefficient.

The Redskins defense has played relatively well, limiting the Eagles from big plays. Brian Orakpo had a sack on Eagle quarterback Michael Vick, an encouraging sign for a player who usually remains quiet in division games.

Washington Redskins Injury Report, Week 17: Roy Helu, Jammal Brown Questionable

The Washington Redskins released their final injury report of the week on Friday ahead of their game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

No players are listed as "out" or "doubtful," but running back Roy Helu (toe/knee) and tackle Jammal Brown (hip) were limited in practice and are listed as questionable. Shanahan said the plan for Helu is pretty straightforward.

"Same thing as last week – give him a workout [and] see how he feels," Shanahan told Redskins public relations, noting the routine will be similar for Brown.

Defensive end Adam Carriker (chest), linebacker London Fletcher (ankle), wide receiver Donté Stallworth (ankle), safety DeJon Gomes (knee), wide receiver Niles Paul (shoulder) and punter Sav Rocca (left ankle) were all listed as probable for the game and all participated fully in practice on Friday.

LeSean McCoy Injury Update: Philadelphia Eagles' RB Expected To Play Vs. Redskins

The Washington Redskins will likely have to contend with LeSean McCoy when they end the season against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Despite being limited in practice with an ankle injury, the Eagles' running back will play on Sunday, according to Tim McManus of Philly Sports Daily.

One of the motivations for McCoy is winning the rushing title, something even the Eagles' coaching staff acknowledges.

The Eagles are gunning to get LeSean McCoy the rushing title.

Marty Mornhinweg acknowledged on Thursday that the team has discussed taking a run at it so long as it’s "within the structure" of the offense.

McCoy will enter the game 128 yards behind Jacksonville's Maurice Jones-Drew, albeit with far fewer attempts. He'll need to have a huge day to have a chance to win the crown.

Philadelphia Eagles Injury Report, Week 17: LeSean McCoy Limited In Practice

The Philadelphia Eagles welcomed running back LeSean McCoy back to practice on Thursday ahead of their matchup with the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

McCoy, battling an ankle injury, was limited in practice but Reuben Frank of Comcast Sports Net Philadelphia tweeted that McCoy was seen catching passes in warmups with his teammates.

The Eagles are still waiting for the return of cornerback Asante Samuel, who remained out of practice on Thursday with a hamstring injury. His status for Sunday's game remains unclear.

Four other players, tackle Todd Herrmans (ankle), defensive tackle Trevor Laws (knee), linebacker Brian Rolle (ankle) and defensive end Darryl Tapp (ribs) remained listed on the team's injury report but were able to fully participate in practice.

Washington Redskins Injury Report, Week 17: London Fletcher Still Among Limited In Practice

Little changed between Wednesday and Thursday for the Washington Redskins on the injury front as they prepare to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Right, tackle Jammal Brown (hip), defensive end Adam Carriker (chest), linebacker London Fletcher (ankle), running back Roy Helu (toe, knee), and wide receiver Donté Stallworth (ankle) all remained limited in practice while safety DeJon Gomes (knee), wide receiver Niles Paul (shoulder) and punter Sav Rocca (left ankle) were all listed on the injury report, but participated fully.

There was also little change in the status of safety LaRon Landry, on injured reserve with an Achillies injury.

"There is no update," head coach Mike Shanahan told Redskins public relations. "I know he was still talking to a couple of people. He has not made a decision yet."

Washington Redskins Injury Report, Week 17: Roy Helu, London Fletcher Limited In Wednesday Practice

The Washington Redskins practiced Wednesday in advance of their season finale Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles and released the week's first injury report.

No Redskins player sat out of practice entirely, though the team elected to limit five players' participation due to injury: right tackle Jammal Brown (hip), defensive end Adam Carriker (chest), linebacker London Fletcher (ankle), running back Roy Helu (toe, knee), and wide receiver Donté Stallworth (ankle).

"We'll just judge him as the week goes on," coach Mike Shanahan said of Helu, who's started five games for the Redskins in 2011. In Helu's absence on Saturday, fellow rookie Evan Royster made his first career start and gained 132 yards on 19 carries.

Three other injured Redskins appear on Wednesday's report, though they participated fully in the day's practice: safety DeJon Gomes (knee), wide receiver Niles Paul, and punter Sav Rocca.

Roy Helu Injury Update: Washington Redskins' Running Back Expects To Play Vs. Eagles

Washington Redskins standout rookie running back Roy Helu missed last week's game against the Minnesota Vikings with knee and toe injuries, but don't expect him to sit out for long. Helu told reporters that he will play on Sunday when the Redskins conclude their season against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, according to 106.7 The Fan's Grant Paulsen.

Helu has been a revelation for the Redskins this year, rushing for over 100 yards three times after being given the starting job, but was ineffective playing through the injuries in a win over the New York Giants two weeks ago. In his absence, fellow rookie Evan Royster rushed for 132 yards in the 33-26 loss to the Vikings. Chances are that both players will see plenty of action in the season finale, especially after the release of Ryan Torain.

LeSean McCoy Injury Update: Eagles Running Back Likely To Play Against Redskins, According To Andy Reid

According to head coach Andy Reid, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy should be ready to play Sunday when they host the Washington Redskins. Despite the Eagles being eliminated from playoff contention after the Giants win over the Jets on Sunday, Reid reinforced that his team is playing to win in the final week of the season and that his starters would play.

Via EaglesInsider:

AR: Starters WILL play against the Redskins, we're in this thing to play our best football.

The definitive nature of Reid's comments is incongruous with what McCoy had said earlier. The Eagles running back, who sprained his ankle in a win over the Cowboys on Sunday, is just 123 yards from breaking Wilbert Montgomery's single season team rushing record and had stated "Montgomery, he's probably smiling right now. I'll get it next year - hopefully."

But Reid indicated that McCoy will be on the field against the Skins:

Via Jonathan Tamari of the Philadelphia Inquirer:

Reid: Shady has a "slight" ankle sprain but should be fine for Sunday #Eagles

LeSean McCoy Injury Update: Philadelphia Eagles' RB Unlikely To Play Vs. Redskins, According To Report

Philadelphia Eagles star running back LeSean McCoy is unlikely to play Sunday against the Washington Redskins due to a sprained ankle, reports Bob Grotz of The Daily Times. McCoy suffered the injury against the Dallas Cowboys last Saturday. Of McCoy, Grotz writes, "his words made it obvious he would need a miraculous recovery" in order to play against Washington.

McCoy is the No. 2 rusher in the NFL, with 1309 yards, and leads the league with 20 total touchdowns (17 rushing, three receiving). Against Washington in Week 6, he gained 126 yards on 28 carries. The three-year veteran is chasing the Eagles' single-season rushing record of 1512 yards, which Wilbert Montgomery holds.

"Montgomery, he's probably smiling right now," McCoy told the media. "I'll get it [the record] next year--hopefully."

If McCoy can't play Sunday, it's likely that Ronnie Brown would serve as the Eagles' lead back. The former Miami Dolphins star has gained 122 yards on 36 carries in 2011, with one touchdown.
