Eight Redskins have been suspended by NFL for drug violations, performance-enhancers since 2011

His one-year contract with the Redskins rolled over into this season under league rules, and he is eligible for possible reinstatement late next month. Each individual situation is different, Hall said. I dont really know each situation, so I cant really comment on it as a whole. Just speaking in terms of being suspended for PEDs or whatever the case may be, its tough. Its tough.

Redskins move into tie for PED suspension lead

Jarvis Jenkins

When you include violations of the substance abuse policy, the Redskins have had eight players suspended by the league since the beginning of the 2011 season. Eight is a lot, cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. I didnt know that. I wasnt really paying attention. But Ill tell you what, theyll get it right. Its their career at stake, their livelihood. Theyll wake up and smell the roses. The list of players suspended over the last three seasons includes three who violated the substance abuse policy: Left tackle Trent Williams , tight end Fred Davis , and safety Tanard Jackson , who is serving an indefinite suspension.

Suspension gives Redskins’ Golston chance to start

*** During team drills, running back Alfred Morris picked up cornerback David Amersons blitz, squared up the block and stopped Amerson. Morris improved as a pass blocker as last season progressed. Although Roy Helu Jr. is getting many reps in third-down situations so far, pass protection helps make Morris a complete back. *** Tight end Jordan Reed blocked smaller, undrafted inside linebackers on separate running plays during team drills. He got away once with leading with turning sideways and leading with his front shoulder, and he did the same thing another time when he chipped a defensive lineman.

The atmosphere was amazing out here today, Hall said. The fans were really enthusiastic and the players fed off of that. Redskins training camp runs through Aug. 16. Most days there are walk throughs at 10 a.m. and practices at 3:20 p.m., all of which are free to the public.

Upset Redskins Fan At Training Camp

She wasnt able to get one single autograph from ANY specific player, and it naturally broke her heart. Obviously the woman is an attention whore, but the question that rises is if this is serious, or if this is some sort of ploy to get something free, such as the VIP Passes the Redskins give out during training camp (which you would hope she does no receive). By no means is a player required to autograph a single thing a fan hands them, they however do out of respect for the support shown. This of course is more for the kids, rather than grown adults who have been known for getting autographs then turning around and selling them online. Last season at Redskins Park a fan was known for doing exactly that, as hed bring in anywhere from 10 to 15 things to be autographed. Her main problem however was being in the wrong area, and had she been to training camps before (she claims to be a life long fan), she should know you want to be at the part of the fence where the players come out of the building, not at the other end (where she apparently was). Lets just hope the other fans in her area dont also make these same videos.

Jarvis Jenkins suspension hurts Redskins

The next day, Green clarified his remarks in an interview with 106.7 The Fan , a D.C.-area radio station. “What my real comment in response to the question was, ‘Does it deserve merit?'” Green clarified. “And my comments were that, ‘Look, if it offended somebody if somebody was offended, then I think it merits at least a discussion.’ I mean, goodness, I mean, people should be able to say ‘Hey, you offended me’ and somebody should be able to have a dialogue. Now, where it lands, thats another thing.” Later during the interview, Green made his position abundantly clear. “In no way I want to see the Redskins change their name, Green told the hosts and radio audience. “So that just makes that clear. And Ill speak for Art, theres no way he wants it, and I guarantee he didnt say it, and I know Ryan Kerrigan Jersey White I didnt say it. The ongoing discussion, debate, controversy, non-issue that has occurred this offseason led team owner Daniel Snyder to declare he would never change the team name. On May 10, Snyder told USA Today ,”We’ll never change the name,” Snyder said. “It’s that simple: NEVERyou can use caps.” One week prior to Snyder’s comments, a so-called “Native American chief” was interviewed on Redskins Nation , a show that is produced, staffed and hired by Redskins owner Dan Snyder. The team proudly announced the news and the support of someone who could put a face on the story.

Redskins defensive end Jarvis Jenkins suspended four games for violating NFL’s PEDs policy

— They are used to this by now, the Washington Redskins , as they rank among the top teams in the league over the past couple of years in the dubious category of drug suspensions. The latest, announced Friday, is a four-game suspension for defensive end Jarvis Jenkins , who becomes the eighth Redskins player to be suspended for a drug violation in the last three years. The whys, the wherefores, the excuses and the denials are all a matter of public record. Jenkins said in a statement that he believes the banned substance was in a supplement he took that didn’t list any banned substances on its label. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said in a post-practice news conference that each of the drug suspensions is different and that the team is “trying to do our due diligence to make it right.” Whatever. A lot of guys cheat, on a lot of teams, in every sport. Some get caught while most don’t. The Redskins are having a bad run with drug suspensions, some of which are for performance-enhancers (as Jenkins’ is) and some of which are not. Make of that what you will. What it means in this case is that they become even more short-handed in the pass rush for the first four games of the 2013 season.

Redskins Training Camp: Day Two

They are business partners, having opened a fitness studio together in northern Virginia. Their families are so close that Alexander’s oldest daughter is staying with the Golstons during the football season so she doesn’t have to switch high schools during her senior year. “Obviously he’s a brother to me,” Golston said. “Sad to see him leave. He was definitely what I call a core Redskin. He believed in everything that this organization stands for, but there is a business side to it. I think he’s instilled enough in me and me in him that hopefully I can channel some of my inner `Zo out here during practice.” Notes: The Redskins brought in LB Joe Mays for a workout Saturday evening. Mays was cut earlier this week by the Denver Broncos. He lost his starting job in Denver last season and then broke his left leg.

I will be very, very ready to contribute as soon as I get back for Game 5.” Jenkins is eligible to participate in the preseason, but will miss games against the Philadelphia Eagles , Green Bay Packers , Detroit Lions and Oakland Raiders . Jenkins will be eligible to return to the Redskins’ roster on Sept. 30. The Redskins have a bye in Week 5. During the four-game suspension, Jenkins will forfeit $167,009 of his $709,789 base salary this season.

Redskins training camp observations – Sat., July 27

Would the same level of excitement exist for day two? Washington Redskins Training Camp The answer came quickly. A young woman named Paige arrived at 4:30 a.m. Friday to take her spot in line. I heard all the reports about what it was like yesterday, she said. So I wanted to make sure I got here early enough to get up front. Front row so I can see RG3.
