Redskins' DeSean Jackson: In and out of voluntary workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he isn't worried about Jackson's spotty attendance at voluntary offseason workouts, ESPN.com reports. "He has been here, he has popped in and had a cup of coffee," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. "Last time I looked up the word 'voluntary,' that is his choice, and he has been in the league nine years. He knows what type of shape he has to come in. Obviously, last year he pulled his hamstring, and some people say it was because he was out of shape, but he wasn't really."

Whatever else his reputation might be, Jackson has never faced any serious questions regarding his conditioning, even after missing six games with hamstring injuries last season. Further alleviating any potential concern is the fact that he'll be playing in the same offensive scheme for a third straight season as he enters the final year of his contract. The Redskins did draft WR Josh Doctson at No. 22 overall, but GM Scot McCloughan said the team will retain both Jackson and Pierre Garcon, who is also entering the final year of his contract. Given Jackson's value as a top deep threat, Garcon is likely the one in real danger of losing snaps and/or targets to the rookie. Interestingly enough, the Redskins may actually be pleased with Jackson's lack of attendance, as he could've collected a $500,000 bonus if he'd shown up for 90 percent of the voluntary program.

Redskins' Kyshoen Jarrett: Unlikely to play in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jarrett is waiting to hear how nerve damage in his shoulder is progressing, but some in the Redskins' organization believe both his immediate and long-term future are in doubt, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

A 2015 sixth-round pick, Jarrett's significant role in the secondary in the second half of last season was prompted by an injury bug that claimed starters DeAngelo Hall and Chris Culliver among its victims, and that forced the Redskins to play a total of 15 defensive backs over the course of the season. Jarrett played well, recording 58 tackles, four passes defensed, and one forced fumble in his rookie campaign. However, he suffered a shoulder injury in the season finale that's casting considerable doubt over his chances of ever re-taking the field. He incurred nerve damage to the entire arm, and remains without much feeling in it a full five months later. Unless his recovery begins to dramatically accelerate, it appears as though he'll miss the 2016 season at a minimum, with the possibility of the injury eventually being a career-ender.

Redskins' Andre Roberts: Released Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (knee) was released by the Redskins on Tuesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Roberts caught just 47 passes in 25 games during his two-year tenure in Washington, eventually falling to fourth or fifth on the depth chart before a knee injury ended his 2015 season early. His fate was sealed when the Redskins drafted Josh Doctson in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, further bolstering a receiving corps that already included DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder. Wherever he lands, Roberts may need to prove that he's still worthy of an NFL roster spot.
