Redskins' D.J. Swearinger: Makes preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After missing the preseason opener, Swearinger (hamstring) retook the field during Thursday's Week 2 preseason game.

Swearinger recorded just one tackle on the night, but it's at least a good sign that his hamstring issue appears to be behind him. The seventh-year safety is slated to start at safety for the Redskins again in 2018 after posting career-high marks in defensive snaps (1,095), tackles (61) and interceptions (four) in 2017.

Redskins' D.J. Swearinger: Out for Thursday's preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swearinger (hamstring) will miss the Redskins preseason opener on Thursday, Kimberley A. Martin of The Washington Post reports.

Swearinger is apparently nursing a minor hamstring injury that doesn't look to be too serious. The Redskins appear to be taking the cautious route with their starting safety in hopes of ensuring that he'll be playing in the games that actually count. Either way, we should have a clearer indication of Swearinger's status in the coming days.

Redskins' D.J. Swearinger: Posts 79 tackles on year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swearinger recorded 79 tackles (61 solo), 10 passes defensed, four interceptions, one forced fumble and 0.5 sacks across 16 contests this season.

Swearinger's first season in the nation's capital was one for the books, as the safety notched career-highs in almost every statistical category. He was second on the team in tackles and provided a consistent presence in Washington's secondary, as his 1,095 defensive reps were the most on the defensive unit.

Redskins' D.J. Swearinger: Notches another interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swearinger logged his third interception of the season in Sunday's overtime loss to the Saints.

Swearinger now has three picks across the previous two weeks, while he had not recorded any prior to that. The 26-year-old also came one tackle short of a season high by posting six (five solo) on the day. He was one of four Redskins defenders to see all 71 defensive snaps in the contest.
