  • Caleb Brantley: Cut by Washington

    The Washington Football team cut ties with Brantley on Friday.

    Brantley was designated as a "higher-risk opt out," which is why he sat out of the 2020 campaign. Prior to the past season, the 26-year-old had spent both 2018 and 2019 with Washington and totaled one tackle through his eight games. Brantley will aim to provide depth at defensive line elsewhere.

    Brantley informed Washington on Monday that he will opt out of the 2020 season, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    As Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic notes, Brantley is designated as a "higher-risk opt out," so he'll be eligible for a $350,000 stipend and have his contract toll over to 2021. He'll also receive an accrued season toward free agency.

    Brantley sustained the injury in Washington's season opener against Philadelphia. The 25-year-old was already slated to miss Sunday's Week 2 matchup with Dallas, but it seems the injury will require a longer recovery period. T.Y. McGill will fill in for Brantley while he's sidelined.

    Brantley (ankle) will miss Sunday's clash with the Cowboys, Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington reports.

    Brantley wasn't able to practice Wednesday or Thursday due to this injury. The 25-year-old sustained the ankle issue in last Sunday's season opener and sported a walking boot afterward.

  • Redskins' Caleb Brantley: Listed as questionable

    The Redskins have listed Brantley (foot) as questionable for Sunday's season opener versus the Eagles, Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington reports.

  • Redskins' Caleb Brantley: Dealing with injury

    Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that Brantley has been diagnosed with a foot injury, and has no timetable for a return, Peter Hailey of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    The injury is classified as a mild Lisfranc injury, which is a joint injury that affects the bones or ligaments in the middle of the foot. This type of injury can be tricky, especially considering the long-term effects, so the team likely won't rush Brantley back. This is disappointing news for the 24-year-old, who has had a strong camp thus far, but won't be able to continue his efforts for the time being.

    Brantley was carted off the field last week, but it doesn't appear to be as bad as it seemed. Jackson even speculated it may have just been cramping, which shouldn't keep him sidelined long. Brantley is expected to be a depth defensive tackle again this season.
