Redskins’ Adrian Peterson Staying Positive Despite Banged Up Offensive Line

Published

on

Washington Redskins veteran running back Adrian Peterson is keeping a positive mindset as he tries to find holes behind a banged up Redskins offensive line that has struggled to give the future Hall of Famer consistent running lanes in recent weeks.

Washington will be without Trent Williams, Shawn Lauvao, and Brandon Scherff as they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday.

“You’ve just got to stay positive and keep pressing,” Peterson said, according to John Keim of ESPN. “It’s not the end of the world, and it’s not the end of the season for us. We all have to perform better. That’s the mindset that I have. … There’s something different when you lose three starters to where your mindset shifts to, ‘I just gotta do more than what I was doing before.’”

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden chimed in on the injuries that the teams has endured along the offensive line, saying that Peterson will carry on with business as usual.

“He just goes through his reads like he normally would,” Gruden said. “It doesn’t matter who’s blocking for him — at guard, center, tackle, tight end, fullback — if we had one — or receiver. He’s just going to go through his progressions and make his cuts and do what he does. It doesn’t matter.”

Bills Cut Terrelle Pryor

The Buffalo Bills have released wide receiver Terrelle Pryor who was signed only a few short weeks ago, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Pryor saw his snap count drop from his first game with the Bills to his second game, and he only managed to haul in two receptions for 17 yards, which will cause speculation that Pryor’s hamstring issues may not be fully behind him.

Pryor as cut from the New York Jets in October, prior to latching on with the Bills.

Carolina Panthers

Three Takeaways from the Detroit Lions loss to the Chicago Bears, keeping them last in the NFC North at 3-6.

1. The defense didn’t help the offense and the offense didn’t help the defense

Right from the start of this game, the Lions defense could not stop the Bears offense. The Bears scored on every possession in the 1st half of the game while the Lions offense was only able to put up seven points in the 1st half. But, when the defense made adjustments and were able to get a few stops in the 2nd half, the offense wasn’t able to return the favor as they would either turn the ball over or struggle to get 1st downs. This is why the lead was so large for the Bears that the Lions couldn’t try and comeback from it. 

2. Darius Slay was clearly missed this game

The Bears receivers had a field day against the Lions secondary in this game. Allen Robinson was one of them as he had his best game of the season with two touchdowns and 133 yards. Darius Slay missed this game with a knee injury and he would’ve probably been the one to guard Robinson this game. But, none of the secondary was really able to get a stop so Slay would’ve been able to only do so much for the defense.

 

3. Nobody really stuck out this game

There really wasn’t anybody or anything that really impressed this game. The defense looked bad from the start, the offense was bad too, and special teams were average.

This game was bad for the Lions as soon as the opening kickoff happened. This loss keeps Detroit at the bottom of the NFC North and there was truly nothing positive to come out of this game. Things are only looking worse for the team as they lost both big divisional games that were going to determine where their season was headed. The Lions host the Panthers next week and Carolina is looking for revenge after their embarrassment against the Steelers. With how bad the Lions have played recently and a playoff team coming into Ford Field next week, the rest of this season may be dark for Lions fans.

The Washington Redskins have activated cornerback Joshua Holsey, who began the season on the non-football injury list, according to am official team announcement.

Holsey played mostly on special teams during his 12 games last season as a rookie, and it is likely that he will return to special teams duties for the Redskins moving forward, and will join a pretty crowded defensive back room in Washington.

In a corresponding move, the Redskins placed offensive lineman Geron Christian on injured reserve.
