It was a great week for running back Anthony Alridge, whom the Redskins re-signed from the Houston Texans' practice squad on Tuesday. Alridge failed to make the opening 53-man roster, in large part, because of his fumbling problems, but Washington brought him back when a roster spot opened because right...

On Teams, Lions Actually Are Special

In the Week 3 installment of Special Teams Saturday with Lorenzo Alexander, we'll discuss why the Redskins need to be very concerned about the Detroit Lions' surprisingly effective teams units and review the positive effective of punter Hunter Smith.

Special-teams standout Rock Cartwright was pushed further down the depth chart at running back when the team re-signed speed back Anthony Alridge off the Houston Texans' practice squad.

In two games, Santana Moss, the Redskins' top wide receiver, has caught five passes for 41 yards. Only once, during a 79-catch 2008, did Moss go through a two-week stretch in which he caught fewer balls. "That's something that the team got to deal with. I'm a player," Moss said...
