Injured Kedric Golston done for the season

By Jason Reid

Redskins defensive end Kedric Golston on Friday confirmed he is done for the season because of elbow and groin injuries.

"Well, I have a pretty significant injury," Golston said in a phone interview. "It's a downer, because you only get 16 of these."

Golston will become the third defensive lineman this week the Redskins have had to put on season-ending injured reserves, joining Phillip Daniels and Maake Kemoateu.

A five-year veteran, Golston started all 13 games in which he played at right end this season, Washington's first in a base 3-4 defense after many years in a 4-3 scheme. The hard-working Golston, a solid defensive tackle in the Redskins' previous defense, was expected to back up two-time all-pro Albert Haynesworth on the right side.

Haynesworth, however, never fully adapted to the 3-4. Citing conduct detrimental to the club, the Redskins suspended Haynesworth without pay for the final four games of the season.

The Redskins are expected to promote someone from the practice squad to replace Golston.

"You know, you only get 16 of these [games], and I'm somebody who never wants to miss a game," Golston said. "I want to be out there and finish the year with my teammates, so that part's hard. This isn't the way you want to end the year, but I can't do anything about it."

oh yeah... Merry Christmas and all that crap!

Watch that Santa character... watching kids whole they sleep... sounds little creepy to me. Snaking down chimneys with a bag of "goodies," surreptitiously kissing mommy and whatnot, calling her his ho. All sounds a bit shady.

A creepy Christmas is a good Christmas!! Tim Burton's " Nightmare Before Christmas" rocks (his last real puppet movie before more souldead computer graphics took over), if you can take Disney channels gross commercialism, ugh..But a black-hearted creepy Christmas to all you little Goth-Skins out there ..another year, another horrorshow, sigh..

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

You have to consider the audience wireman. People like pabrian2008, alan4, and ifthethunderdontgetya are never satisfied and always b1tching and whining. Unfortunately arguing with these alleged Redskin fans is no different than arguing with Dallas fans or Philly fans. There is something fundamentally wrong with that...Not being able to distinguish between your own fans and opposing team fans. Jeeez. In conclusion Jason Reid(who btw is not a Redskin fan, but a reporter who got stuck with the beat) is merely pandering to the crowd

Breaking bread together provides a good opportunity for people to get to know one another, especially when the diners are the incoming mayor of Washington and the general manager of a sports franchise that plays its games in one state but practices in another.

See where I'm heading?

Washington Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen, Mayor-elect Vince Gray and D.C. Council member Michael Brown were spotted at the legendary Morton's steakhouse on Thursday evening, and while no deals were expected to be ironed out immediately, it's obvious why these two men were seated at the same table with others who can make things happen for the Redskins and the city.

Injured Kedric Golston done for the season

Today's Pop quiz:

Name the only drafted defensive lineman on the roster of the Washington Redskins.

You have 30 seconds.

(INSERT quizzical wondering, music from the show Jeopardy, and then, after a thoughtful pause, a blank stare.)

Time's up.

The answer: Kedric Golston

Bloggas ape about drafting offensive lineman not realizing the skins' previous personnel also neglected the defensive front as well.

It would be nice if the upcoming draft was a dull affair featuring a mix and matching of selected linemen who play both sides of the ball.

Pretty obvious, the 'SKINS are planning on taking a QB in the first. They will have to trade their entire itinary of 2012 draft picks to do so, but SHANAHAN appears to be the kind of hard-bitten son-of-a-gun to do it. We're going nowhere at this rate. Of course, we'll have a replacement team for awhile looking at the circumstances between owners and players so I guess it's really irrelevant at this point.

Is a supplemental pick technically the same as a draft pick?

Posted by: glawrence007 | December 25, 2010 2:41 PM | Report abuse

Is j.jarmon a LB or DE now, and wasn't ORAKPO drafted as a DE originally.

Posted by: glawrence007 | December 25, 2010 2:43 PM | Report abuse

And ROB JACKSON too as a DE.

So we want to be technical?

Yes, Rob Jackson, Jeremy Jarmon, Brian Orakpo, and Chris Wilson were drafted to play defensive end.

But to date, each is playing linebacker, not defensive line.

Jarmon's selection--decried at the time as a FAIL!--by this blogga is most disheartening as he's a 3rd rounder with no true use in Haslett's scheme.

In any event, Kedric Golston is the only drafted defensive lineman who plays, and he was drafted 5 years ago.

And so to our greater point: we need to draft offensive AND defensive lineman over the next couple of NFL drafts.

We kinda sorta have to now, don't we?

Having burned the McNabb Bridge, not taking a quarterback in the upcoming draft means building an offensive foundation on the soft soil known as Rex Grossman.

Raise your hands if you endorse that idea.

Taking a quarteback high won't kill us as we should go into the draft with like 6-9 selections provided some vets (McNabb/AH?) are unloaded for picks.

Plus, for folks have to remember that the upcoming draft should feature quarterbacks, linebackers, and defensive lineman: and we have needs at those positions, too ya' know.

And we should take from the draft what the draft offers.

It's not a draft year featuring tons 'o stud offensive lineman.

More than likely, we might add a FA center and guard to continue the work of rebuilding the o-line.

But we must add--again--a quarterback of the future.

I wish I had a 1$ for everytime WAPO has alluded to, written about or hypothesized about Albert Haynesworth. Even in this article about Golston they allude to and reference Haynesworth. Get over it WAPO, everyone is tired of hearing about it. Why don't you actually report NEWS rather than re-hashing past history. Maybe WAPO will be going the way of Newsweek, obviously top-notch reporting is not a priority.

gimmesummoe the Skins have 7 picks already. % of there own, one from the Saints, and one from the Colts. Also, if Locker/Mallet/Ponder is the Qb that his the source of Shanny's desire, then the Skins will trade back in the first to get him. As you mentioned, the Skins can trade McNabb/AH for more picks. The Skins can easily have 10 picks in the 2011 draft.

BTW I promote the idea of the Skins getting interior Oline starters via FA, and building depth on the Oline in the middle to late rounds. Why, because centers and guards aren't going to blow the cap with their salaries.

The Best News Story of the Year:

Sex Toy Used to Beat Off Cop

When a police officer attempted to arrest 56-year-old Illinois resident Carolee Bildstein in November for a dine-and-dash, she allegedly attacked him with a "clear, rigid feminine pleasure device."


The officer in question is named Dil Dough.

I promote the idea of the Skins getting interior Oline starters via FA, and building depth on the Oline in the middle to late rounds.

That's a fairly reasonable approach.

Again: we should take from the draft what the draft offers.

A FA center and guard added to a re-signed Brown, Williams, and Lictenslieger (sp) would do wonders.

Again: what you suggest is a solid approach.

Yeah man where are all those positive stories about all those Super Bowls they won last Century?

I blame the media, the Post especially for all their losses. I blame the POST for the bad trades, the rotten drafts, the idiotic Free Agent spending, the signing of the wrong coaches.

It's the Post's fault, and no one else's.

Thank you so much for noting it. No one else here will.

All Hail Snyder!!!
