Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall has received his punishment for his altercation with an official in Week 8 against the Steelers. A source told CBS Sport’s Jason La Canfora that Hall has been fined $30,000.
Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III has been voted captain for the rest of the season by the offensive players. Coach Mike Shanahan says it’s the first time he’s seen a rookie in that type of leadership position.
Redskins wide receiver Peirre Garcon has missed the past four games with a Plantar’s plate in his right toe/foot. This week he has practiced twice but still remains limited to that. His return could mean good things for the offense. Coach Shanahan said there is a chance he may see some playing time on Sunday against the Eagles.
Redskins vs Eagles
Sunday, 12 pm
Eagles have been preparing backup quarterback Nick Foles for the possibility of starting Sunday’s game since Michael Vick is still suffering from concussion symptoms. Vick has not been ruled out to play on Sunday.
The Redskins need to keep tabs on on LB LeSean McCoy. He ranks 10th in the league with 705 rushing yards on 162 carries. He is also a threat in the backfield and has made three touchdown catches this season. With the Eagles most likely starting Foles, they will probably see a lot of the veteran McCoy.
Both Philadelphia and Washington are 3-6 and tied for last place in the NFC East.
