  • Jamin Davis Had Clean-Up Procedure On Knee

    Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera said that linebacker Jamin Davis (knee) had a clean-up procedure on his knee earlier in the offseason and will only take part in walkthroughs at organized team activities this week. Davis suffered a knee injury in Week 17 last year against the Dallas Cowboys and ended the 2022 campaign on Injured Reserve as a result. The 24-year-old wrapped up his second NFL season with 104 tackles (68 solo), three sacks, nine tackles for loss, five QB hits and two fumble recoveries in 16 games (15 starts). Barring a setback with his knee, the team will be hoping that Davis will be ready to go for training camp at the end of July.

  • Armani Rogers Suffers Achilles Injury

    Washington Commanders tight end Armani Rogers (Achilles) suffered a non-contact Achilles injury during organized team activities on Tuesday, and there is no timetable for his return. Non-contact injuries are usually never good, so there's a chance Rogers suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. The 25-year-old played in his first NFL season in 2022 in Washington and caught just five of six targets for 64 yards in 11 games played (three starts). If he avoided a serious Achilles injury, Rogers is expected to compete for a roster spot as tight end depth behind Logan Thomas and John Bates. We'll have an update on his condition as soon we know more.

  • Drew White Placed On PUP List

    The Washington Commanders placed linebacker Drew White (knee) on the Physically Unable to Perform list on Monday after waiving him with a failed-physical designation. White was waived last Friday but didn't attract any interest on waivers and will return to Washington. The two sides could still end up parting ways before the 2023 regular season. The Notre Dame alumni has yet to play in an NFL game.

  • Emmanuel Forbes Works In Slot

    Washington Commanders first-round cornerback Emmanuel Forbes was deployed strictly on the outside in college because of his high-end coverage instincts, but the Commanders typically lined up in the slot during rookie minicamp over the weekend. The spot makes sense for Forbes if the team looks to keep starters Kendall Fuller and Benjamin St-Juste on the boundaries. Forbes should be a starter for Washington in his rookie season in 2023, and he set the collegiate record by returning six of his 14 interceptions back for touchdowns, so he's likely to eventually have appeal as a defensive back in IDP fantasy leagues. But it will be interesting if Forbes stays in the slot, because his 6-foot-1, 173-pound frame doesn't exactly profile well on the inside.

  • Commanders Want To Get Antonio Gibson More Touches

    Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera said he'd like to get more touches for fourth-year running back Antonio Gibson this year, and Rivera is intrigued by how the versatile Gibson fits into "what Eric Bieniemy wants to do with the offense." In his third year in D.C. in 2022, Gibson had a career-low 149 carries for 546 yards and three touchdowns, but he added a career-high 46 catches (58 targets) for 353 yards and two more scores in 15 games (six starts). Brian Robinson will continue to be a thorn in Gibson's side on early downs and at the goal line, but Gibson's fantasy ceiling should go up with Bieniemy running the offense and if they indeed give him more touches to do damage in an offense that has the potential to be explosive.

  • Chris Rodriguez Jr. Could Be Involved In Washington's Backfield

    Former University of Kentucky running back Chris Rodriguez Jr. was selected in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft by the Washington Commanders, but the team reportedly had a third-round grade on him. That said, he could have a chance to see touches alongside Antonio Gibson and Brian Robinson Jr. in his rookie campaign. His sixth-round draft capital means he's no guarantee to even make the roster, but it certainly doesn't hurt that Washington was high on him in the pre-draft process. The 22-year-old running back posted 3,643 rushing yards and 33 touchdowns in five seasons at Kentucky and has adequate size (217 lbs.) to handle early-down work. Ultimately, he'll have an uphill battle to beat out Robinson, but the Alabama product averaged just 3.9 yards per carry last season, so it's not an impossible task.

  • Commanders All-In On Sam Howell

    The Washington Commanders have said all offseason that quarterback Sam Howell is their guy, and it was backed up when they didn't take a single QB in this year's NFL draft. Sources within the team say they plan to give him the first shot at the starting gig in 2023. The Commanders like how Howell developed in 2022, culminating in a win in the regular season finale over the Cowboys. He completed 11 of 19 passes for 169 yards, one touchdown, one rushing TD and a pick. "I'm happy with exactly where he is," general manager Martin Mayhew said. Team sources say the team also likes Howell because he's on a rookie contract, which has allowed them to make other moves. Veteran Jacoby Brissett is also on the roster, but Howell will most definitely be given every chance to keep the starting job this year.

  • Chase Roullier Released By Commanders

    Washington Commanders center Chase Roullier has been released by the organization on Friday. There were rumors that Roullier would become a cap causality and that became true. The Commanders will save $8.3 million by cutting Roullier with a post-June 1 designation. Roullier became expandable after the Commanders drafted Ricky Stromberg out of Arkansas in the third round and signed free agent Nick Gates earlier this offseason. The Commanders don't need three centers, especially when Roullier has played in a total of 10 games over the last two seasons. Possibly, he lands elsewhere, but he'll need to show he can stay healthy to win a job in training camp.

  • Chase Roullier Likely To Be Cut

    Washington Commanders center Chase Roullier is expected to be released by the organization this offseason. The 29-year-old has played in a total of 10 games over the last two seasons for Washington. The organization signed Nick Gates to a three-year, $16.5 million deal over the offseason. The expectation is that he'll be the starting center going forward. The Commanders can save $8.3 million in cap space by releasing Roullier post-June 1. The veteran guard should be able to catch on elsewhere, but it's unlikely the Commanders pay him $8 million to be a backup.

  • Andrew Norwell Could Be Cut

    Washington Commanders left guard Andrew Norwell could be a cut-candidate this offseason. Recently, head coach Ron Rivera failed to mentioned Norwell in a rundown of candidates to start at left guard this upcoming season. The 31-year-old started in 16 games for the Commanders last season at left guard. The organization could save $4.38 million by cutting Norwell. The Commanders have depth at the guard position, so they don't exactly need Norwell in the mix. The veteran guard should be able to find another spot elsewhere if he's eventually released by the organization.
