      With apologies for seemingly coming out of left field with this ...

      We have decided to close up shop here at BGO, effective at the end of the 2019 regular season.

      We haven’t come to this decision suddenly, or easily, but once we agreed to make the call we wanted to let you all know well ahead of time. The bye week seemed as logical a time as any.

      It has been great ten-year run for us, and we’re more proud than we can possibly express to have attracted the great group of individuals who make up our membership. We have been genuinely humbled by that. Bottom line, the ...

      Interim Head Coach Bill Callahan

      Opening statement:
      First off, congratulations to the [Washington] Nat[ional]s for their championship. Really awesome to see. Really happy for those guys.

      QB Case Keenum update:
      “[QB] Case [Keenum] is still in the concussion protocol and [QB] Dwayne [Haskins Jr.] got the majority of the reps today. So, no change where we were yesterday. Same situation, scenario.”

      On why not announce Haskins as the starter:
      “Concussion protocols are day-to-day, so we’ll have to see what’s going on tomorrow morning and where [QB] Case [Keenum] is at and make a decision from there tomorrow and maybe Saturday. Make another decision based on where he’s at. We’re just gathering all the information we can right now.”

      On if Keenum can start without practices this week:
      “That’s ...

      Interim Head Coach Bill Callahan

      Opening Statement:
      “So today we started preparation on the Bills. We went out in helmets and spiders, and really the energy and the effort on the practice was good to see after a few days of break. A lot of good energy, enthusiasm, good head start preliminarily on the Buffalo Bills. We’re anxious to get going and get the players back in the building on Wednesday, but good start for today.”

      On injury updates for QB Case Keenum, RB Derrius Guice:
      “[QB] Case [Keenum] didn’t practice today and we’ll find out a little bit more this evening and tomorrow, and we’ll get a little bit more data as they do the baseline testing ...

      Interim Head Coach Bill Callahan

      Opening statement:
      “Today we just really focused on third down, really worked on a lot of different situations and scenarios within that situation. We need a lot of work at it, hopefully the work that we did today will translate to the game, but that’s certainly one of the areas that we’re working on to improve. Our team did a pretty good job working at it and like I said we gotta translate it into the game. That really was the main focus today in practice, just trying to get better in situational football, whether it was mixed downs or whether it was third down. That was really the gist of it. I thought that the team responded well and got a lot of good work.”

      On if QB Case Keenum returned to practice today:
      “Yes.”

      On if CB Josh Norman was unable to practice today:
      “Correct.”

      On if there is an update on RB Chris Thompson:
      “No, same – day-to-day.”

      On what he envisions FB Michael Burton’s role being:
      “We can utilize him in a 21 personnel package or a 22 personnel package and ...

      The Redskins are looking at a 2019 season that is nothing short of a disaster. The head coach has been fired. Others are barely hanging on and if the NFL draft was held today, the Burgundy ...

      Interim Head Coach Bill Callahan

      On if there is an injury update for RB Chris Thompson:
      “We’re still evaluating his status, so we’ll know a little bit more on Wednesday.”

      On if Thompson went for an MRI:
      “He did. I believe so, yes.”

      On the decision to put TE Jordan Reed on IR:
      “I think that we gave him as much time as possible to overcome his injury and at this juncture it’s going to be a little bit more prolonged. So, I think the decision to put him on IR was probably the smartest move we could make at this time for him.”

      On whether he anticipates Reed returning this season:
      “I don’t know, I really don’t know. I’m unsure. I think as we move along in time it will define ...

      Redskins President Bruce Allen

      Opening statement:
      "Good afternoon. Last night after the game, we came to a decision that we had to relieve [former Head Coach] Jay [Gruden] of his duties. [Owner] Dan [Snyder] and I met with Jay this morning to release him of his duties. Jay was disappointed in not being able to achieve what we all wanted to achieve and it was a brief conversation. After that, we had a coaches meeting and we're fortunate to have a seasoned veteran like [Head Coach] Bill Callahan on our staff, and we named Bill our interim head coach and had an entire coaching staff meeting and Bill has been grinding through meetings the rest of the morning. To make a decision like this is difficult, but it was necessary. Our 0-5 start is not just disappointing, we had much different expectations for this beginning of the season. We owe it to our fans, our millions of fans – not just here in the great nation’s capital, but across the world – the organization, the players, the coaches and their families to do everything we can to win. Under Bill's leadership and the programs he's going to put in, and the discipline and execution, ...
