Football Team's Robert Foster: Signs in Washington
Washington signed Foster to the active roster Tuesday, Matt Zenitz of AL.com reports.
The Football Team signed Foster off the Packers' practice squad, where the 26-year-old wide receiver has spent the last six weeks after getting cut by Buffalo. The 6-foot-2 wideout can stretch the field, as he caught 27 passes for 541 yards (20.0 yards per reception) for the Bills in 2018. If Isaiah Wright (undisclosed) and Antonio Gandy-Golden (hamstring) are forced to miss any time, Foster handle a decent workload immediately in Washington's offense.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Peyton Barber: Inefficient day in limited role
Barber ran for six yards on four carries, and he caught his lone target for a gain of four yards during Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Giants.
Barber's first two touches went for a combined eight yards against New York, but his subsequent three opportunities yielded just two more, as the 26-year-old back has now been held under 30 scrimmage yards in each of his first six outings to begin the season. Barber still leads the team with 11 red-zone rush attempts, but rookie Antonio Gibson has been steadily usurping that duty as the season has progressed. The former Buccaneer is averaging an abysmal 1.7 yards per carry heading into a Week 7 matchup against Dallas' 31st-ranked rush defense.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Casey Toohill: Officially added to roster
Toohill was added to the Football Team's active roster Tuesday, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.
The rookie out of Stanford passed through the six days of COVID-19 testing after signing with the football team Oct. 14. Toohill will take Joshua Garnett's roster spot after Garnett announced his retirement.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Joshua Garnett: Plans to retire
Garnett intends to retire, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
The former first-rounder out of Stanford was inactive against the Giants after missing practice with an illness. Garnett appeared in three games for the Football Team this year. His retirement hasn't been made official but things are trending in that direction.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Daron Payne: Registers five stops
Payne made five tackles -- one for a loss -- in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Giants.
Payne continues to log massive playing time, as he played 45 of 48 defensive snaps (94 percent). The 2018 first-round pick has posted at least four tackles in four consecutive games, but he hasn't taken down the quarterback since Week 1. It'll be tough to depend on him in IDP circles unless he can turn around the sack numbers.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Saahdiq Charles: Dislocates kneecap Sunday
Charles suffered a dislocated kneecap in Sunday's loss to the Giants and is expected to miss the Week 7 matchup against the Cowboys, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The rookie fourth-rounder exited Sunday's game after playing his second career snap. The team hopes he'll be available following the Week 8 bye, but that will depend on how well he progresses. The 21-year-old will be replaced by Wes Martin at left guard for the time being.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Dustin Hopkins: Misses another field goal
Hopkins made two of three field goals and his lone extra-point attempt in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Giants.
Washington opened Sunday's game with a long 12-play drive, but it wasn't rewarded, as Hopkins pushed a 47-field goal wide right. He made up for it by being perfect for the rest of the afternoon, hitting kicks from 28 and 35 yards, but in a game that was decided by one point, there are questions about Hopkins' job security, especially since he's connected on just seven of 10 field goals this season. Coach Ron Rivera shut down that notion, though, saying that Hopkins' job is secure at this time. If these misses keep up, however, Hopkins' leash could get shorter, so he'll seek a clean showing in Week 7 against the Cowboys.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Cam Sims: Scores first NFL touchdown
Sims caught his lone target for a 22-yard touchdown in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Giants.
Sims came in for Isaiah Wright, who suffered what appeared to be a shoulder injury on the final drive. Antonio Gandy-Golden had injured his hamstring earlier in the game, so Sims, Terry McLaurin and Dontrelle Inman were Washington's only healthy wide receivers by the end. Sims promptly scored a touchdown, but his team came up short on the two-point attempt and wasn't able to recover the ensuing onside kick. Sims will have a top-three role at WR if Inman and Gandy-Golden can't make it back for Week 7 against Dallas. The 2018 UDFA has bounced between the bottom of Washington's roster and the practice squad for three years now, with Sunday's touchdown being the first of his career.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Isaiah Wright: Banged up in fourth quarter
Wright appeared to suffer an injury near the end of Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Giants, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.
Wright was removed from the game with about 70 seconds remaining after he picked up six yards on a short reception. He finished with four catches for 25 yards on five targets, while replacement Cam Sims caught a 22-yard touchdown pass shortly after taking Wright's place. Sims could have a regular role in three-wide sets if Wright isn't ready for Week 7 against Dallas.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Dontrelle Inman: Posts season high for yardage
Inman caught each of his five targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Giants.
The 31-year-old has drawn exactly five targets in four of six games this year, with his 45 yards from Sunday representing a season high. The team might eventually give more work to younger players, but Inman likely will retain his top-three role for at least Week 7 against the Cowboys. A Week 8 bye could be a logical time for Washington to kick off a youth movement, though the current state of the NFC East means the team will be right in the hunt if it can upset Dallas next Sunday....

Football Team's Antonio Gibson: Posts 55 total yards in loss
Gibson rushed nine times for 30 yards and secured four of five targets for 25 yards in the Washington Football Team's 20-19 loss to the Giants on Sunday.
Gibson logged just one more carry than backfield mate J.D. McKissic and saw one fewer target, as coach Ron Rivera continued to keep the workload split fairly evenly between the two. Naturally, that approach isn't doing fantasy managers any favors, and with McKissic actually more productive on a per-touch basis Sunday, it isn't likely Gibson separates into a true lead-back role any time soon. As such, the rookie's fantasy prospects remain mixed heading into a Week 7 battle against the Cowboys.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Logan Thomas: Gets into end zone Sunday
Thomas brought in three of four targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in the Washington Football Team's 20-19 loss to the Giants on Sunday.
The journeyman tight end finally scored again after a four-game drought, making an impressive contested catch in the left corner of the end zone late in the first half. Thomas' yardage tally, modest as it was, qualified as a season high, and Sunday marked his first game with multiple receptions since Week 3. Thomas will look to carry over the momentum from Sunday's productive effort into a Week 7 home showdown against the Cowboys.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's J.D. McKissic: Posts 84 total yards in loss
McKissic rushed eight times for 41 yards and secured all six targets for 43 yards in the Washington Football Team's 20-19 loss to the Giants on Sunday.
McKissic continued to enjoy a steady role in the offense, outpacing backfield mate Antonio Gibson in total touches by one and posting at least six receptions for the third straight game. The eight carries tied a season high for McKissic, who appears to have a relatively modest but consistent role as a pass-catching option that can occasionally see larger-than-expected opportunity on the ground. McKissic will look to build on Sunday's season-best effort versus the Cowboys in Week 7.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Paces receivers in narrow loss
McLaurin secured seven of 12 targets for 74 yards in the Washington Football Team's 20-19 loss to the Giants on Sunday.
McLaurin paced the WFT's pass catchers in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the way to another productive effort. It was a solid bounce-back performance for the second-year wideout, who'd posted a season-worst 3-26 line in Week 5 against the Rams while coming off a thigh injury. With quarterback Kyle Allen putting together a strong showing in Sunday's losing effort, there's reason for optimism with respect to McLaurin's prospects moving forward. He'll look to continue delivering on that potential versus the Cowboys in a Week 7 home contest.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Kyle Allen: Nearly leads comeback
Allen (arm) completed 31 of 42 passes for 280 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Washington Football Team's 20-19 loss to the Giants on Sunday. He also rushed twice for eight yards and lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown.
With his team down 10-0 after one quarter, Allen went to work, helping close the gap to 13-10 by halftime with a pair of 70-yard scoring drives, the second of which he closed with a pretty touch pass to Logan Thomas in the back left corner of the end zone. Allen would then spearhead a third 70-yard march that straddled the closing minute of the third quarter and the first 6:04 of the final period, ultimately culminating in a game-tying field goal. After committing a crucial fumble that was returned for a touchdown with 3:29 remaining, Allen bounced back in impressive fashion by capping a 75-yard drive with another nifty scoring toss in the left corner of the opposite end zone to Cam Sims with 36 seconds left. However, he wasn't able to convert the subsequent two-point conversion pass attempt, short-circuiting the comeback. Outside of the costly miscue, Allen certainly acquitted himself well from both a real-world and fantasy perspective, leaving him poised to remain in the starting role for a Week 7 divisional battle versus the Cowboys....
