Smoke Signals: Redskins News for December 16, 2016

One of my favorite Redskins players, RB Chris Thompson is small and not a starter, so he’s easy to overlook. That’s a mistake.

Key matchups in the upcoming Redskins-Panthers game.

Redskins CB Josh Norman declines to kick his former team, the Carolina Panthers, when they’re down.

But Josh is hoping Panthers QB Cam Newton will throw his way a few times on Monday night.

Skins are hoping to get more from injured TE Jordan Reed this week, but it might not happen.

QB Kirk Cousins appreciates the value of continuity as an offense and a team.

Both ILBs Will Compton (knee) and Su’a Cravens (elbow) missed practice on Thursday. Obviously, not a good sign.

But the starting offensive line was back at practice. Good news.

NFL schedule-makers have been mean to the Redskins.

Former Redskins WR Santana Moss looks back at a 2013 rift with then-QB Robert Griffin.

You’re a Skins fan, probably. Should you be rooting for the Cowboys or the Buccaneers on Sunday?

A look at Washington’s defensive failures on 3rd down.

DB DeShazor Everett is $48,000 lighter in the wallet.
