Paul Richardson underwent an MRI on his knee and results came back negative.

Two weeks into the season, and Richardson has already dealt with two separate injuries. He was limited in practice last week with a shoulder issue and was limited on Wednesday with this ailment. Richardson has eight grabs for 85 yards on 12 targets. Chris Thompson (21) and Jordan Reed (13) have been targeted more.

Redskins placed RB Rob Kelley on injured reserve with a toe injury.

Kelley was injured in Sunday's loss to the Colts. It sounds like he will be a candidate for return. Kelley must sit at least eight games. Samaje Perine will slot in as the Redskins' No. 3 back.

Redskins signed WR Michael Floyd.

Floyd spent training camp and preseason with the Saints but was an easy cut for them after catching one ball in exhibitions. Now 28, the former first-rounder is running out of chances in the NFL and is unlikely to be a difference-maker in D.C. He's not a great fit with Alex Smith at quarterback.
Sep 17 - 6:42 PM

Redskins signed WR Breshad Perriman, formerly of the Ravens.

It's a no-risk flyer pickup as the Redskins look to add speed to the perimeter of their offense, where Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson have struggled to get open. The 26th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Perriman flamed out in Baltimore due to injuries and persistent drops. He's a long shot to make any noise.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent Breshad Perriman is working out for the Redskins on Monday.

Perriman has visited the Jets, Bills, and Eagles already, and there were reports he had a visit scheduled with the Giants. It is possible he is looking for a 53-man roster spot which is just not available.

Jamison Crowder absorbed two-of-four targets for eight yards while adding a team-leading 29 rushing yards on two carries Sunday in the Redskins’ Week 2 loss to the Colts.

He got the ball on Washington’s first play from scrimmage, chewing up 25 yards on a reverse. Crowder didn’t see much work after that, though he was involved with a controversial play in the second quarter. Darius Leonard appeared to strip the ball from Crowder following a four-yard catch, though the play was later overturned after replay showed Crowder was down by contact. The contract-year receiver is off to an underwhelming start with just five catches for 40 yards through his first two contests. We’ll see what the former Duke Blue Devil can cook up next week against the Packers.

Paul Richardson pulled in four-of-six targets for 63 yards Sunday in the Redskins’ Week 2 loss to Indianapolis.

He logged his 100th career catch on the Redskins’ opening possession. Richardson heard footsteps on an ugly second-quarter drop but redeemed himself later by beating Kenny Moore in coverage for a 34-yard reception later in the first half. That catch stood as the longest play from scrimmage for either team. Richardson missed practice time with a shoulder issue this week but the injury didn't seem to hinder him on Sunday. Next up for the ‘Skins is a home matchup against Green Bay.
Sep 16 - 5:58 PM

Josh Doctson nabbed four-of-seven targets for 37 yards Sunday in the Redskins’ Week 2 loss to Indianapolis.

Doctson committed a head-scratching drop in the first quarter but redeemed himself somewhat by beating Pierre Desir for a 14-yard grab down the sideline later in the afternoon. He almost came down with a touchdown about midway through the third quarter, but couldn’t quite pull it in. Doctson’s Week 2 wasn’t anything to write home about, though at least he saw seven targets, good for third-most on the team behind only Chris Thompson (13) and Jordan Reed (eight). The 2016 first-rounder gets the Packers at home in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 5:56 PM

Alex Smith completed 33-of-46 passes for 292 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions while supplying 14 yards on four carries Sunday in Washington’s Week 2 loss to the Colts.

Smith also lost 23 yards on three sacks. The Redskins’ offense was cooking against the Cardinals last week, but they never got going on Sunday, managing just three field goals in a home loss to Indy. Smith had a quiet first half but let it rip after halftime, tallying 195 of his 292 yards in the second half. Most of it came in garbage time on check-downs to Chris Thompson, though he did connect on a handful of deep balls. Smith and the Redskins will take a 1-1 record into next week’s home matchup against the Packers.
Sep 16 - 5:04 PM

Jordan Reed handled six-of-eight targets for 55 yards Sunday in the Redskins’ Week 2 loss to the Colts.

He went most of the first half without drawing a target, finally getting a look from Alex Smith with six minutes to go in the second quarter. Reed came through with five catches for 51 yards after halftime but also committed a costly fumble in the fourth quarter that essentially handed Indy the game. The 28-year-old has always been a productive player when healthy and that should continue to be the case next week when the Redskins host Green Bay at FedEx Field.
Sep 16 - 5:03 PM

Adrian Peterson managed just 20 yards on 11 carries while also securing three catches for 30 yards on three targets Sunday in Washington’s Week 2 loss to the Colts.

Peterson bullied his way to 166 yards in his Redskins’ debut a week ago at Arizona, but he didn’t have the same success Sunday versus Indianapolis. The Colts bottled him up all day, particularly in the first half when AD was limited to just one yard on three carries. Peterson caught a screen pass for a 21-yard pickup in the passing game, but that was his only real contribution on a day where the Redskins totaled just 65 rushing yards. Obviously, Peterson lost a ton of work to Chris Thompson with Washington in catch-up mode for much of the second half. That could be a concern again next week when the Aaron Rodgers-led Packers come to town.
Sep 16 - 5:01 PM

Chris Thompson rushed for just one yard on four carries but made up for that lack of production by snagging 13 catches for a team-leading 92 yards on 14 targets Sunday in the Redskins’ Week 2 loss to the Colts.

A whopping 10 of Thompson’s career-high 13 receptions came after halftime with the Redskins playing from behind. Obviously Thompson had little success as a ball-carrier in this one but he was incredibly efficient as a pass-catcher, hauling in all but one of his 14 targets from Alex Smith. Through two games Thompson has shown zero ill effects from last year’s broken leg and already has the look of a PPR monster. He’ll be a flex consideration against the Packers in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 4:59 PM

Updating an earlier report, Redskins RG Brandon Scherff (knee) has returned to Sunday's Week 2 game against the Colts.

He missed a handful of snaps after tweaking his right knee early in the second quarter but was back in for the next series. Chase Roullier filled in at right guard during Scherff's brief absence.
Sep 16 - 2:11 PM

Redskins RG Brandon Scherff left Sunday's Week 2 game against the Colts with a right knee injury and is questionable to return.

He limped off early in the second quarter. Chase Roullier has shifted from center to right guard with Tony Bergstrom at center. A 2015 first-rounder out of Iowa, Scherff has represented the 'Skins in each of the last two Pro Bowls.
Sep 16 - 1:56 PM

Paul Richardson (shoulder) is active for Week 2 against the Colts.

Richardson had been questionable with a shoulder injury. LB Zach Brown (oblique), QB Colt McCoy (thumb), OT Morgan Moses (knee) and OT Trent Williams (knee) will also be active for Washington's home opener. CB Adonis Alexander, S Troy Apke, DT Caleb Brantley, OT Geron Christian, C Casey Dunn, WR Maurice Harris and RB Samaje Perine round out the Redskins' Week 2 inactives.
