Redskins Insider: December 2, 2007 - December 8, 2007

Rich Tandler - Guest Blog

Rich is a bigtime Skins fan, a good dude and someone who has spent a lot of time researching the franchise (I have several of his books and they come in handy all the time on this beat). He is the author of The Redskins From A to Z (...

Campbell Sepaks

Jason sounded a couple of time like his season is over, and from a realistic standpoint he made it sound as if he knows he has to be smart about his knee injury. However, he said he would take it "week-to-week," meeting the media while on crutches with his left...

What I'm Hearing On Campbell (UPDATED)

Spoke to some sources close to him who say that barring something crazy showing up on the MRI - and the Redskins and their doctors do not expect anything severe in this case - that this looks like a 4 week injury. They are reading the MRI now, but the...

Friday Afternoon H-Back

Let's begin at the end, shall we? Very different feel to the final few offensive drives Thursday, eh, with Todd Collins at the helm? It was clear the approach was different with a fourth quarter lead with Collins behind center. The Redskins were more aggressive and played to win,...

Jason Campbell's MRI Moved To 1:30 PM/Other Stuff

The QB was supposed to get evaluated at 10 am, but it was moved back. So we won't know the full extent of the injury until later in the afternoon. The hope around here was that it would be a three-week injury, but until they see the scope of the...

Jason Campbell Seriously Injured - Dislocated Patella

Two Bears brought him down as he threw, collapsing his left knee and lower leg. The hit was not from the side - where you immediately fear multiple ligament tears - but he did go down hard. He was helped to his feet and is being put on a cart...

Can't Call Two Timeouts in Row - Lose 17-16

Bills found the seam between the safeties and the LBs, floating it over the backers, and beating Eubanks and Doughty in coverage. That sets up the 51-yard attempt - Lindell hits it but the Skins had called timeout before he kicked. So here we go the second time. But Skins...
