  • Commanders' Efe Obada: Heads to PUP list

    Obada (lower leg) was placed on the active/PUP list Wednesday, Chick Hernandez of WUSA 9 reports.

    Obada suffered multiple lower leg fractures in late November, missing the final six games of the 2023 regular season after undergoing surgery. He is expected to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, but he'll require some additional time before he'll be able to practice in a full capacity at the Commanders' training camp.

  • Commanders' Jer'Zhan Newton: Comes off NFI list

    The Commanders activated Newton (foot) from their active/non-football injury list Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports reports.

    Newton has spent the offseason recovering from a partial Jones fracture that he suffered last year at Illinois, but it now seems that he's moved past the issue. The 6-foot-2, 304-pound defensive tackle posted 22.5 tackles for loss during his final two collegiate seasons, and he's expected to contribute as a rotational defensive lineman throughout his rookie campaign.

  • Commanders' Jer'Zhan Newton: Progressing well

    Adam Peters, the Commanders' GM, indicated Tuesday that the team is pleased with Newton's (foot) progress, and he is expected to return "sooner rather than later," Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Newton underwent a procedure on his right foot in January, and then another one on his left in mid-May. A second-round selection by Washington, the rookie is expected to play a role in the team's interior trenches when he's healthy. While there appears to be optimism regarding his recovery, it remains to be seen when he'll be back on the field.

  • Commanders' Jayden Daniels: Splits starting reps to begin camp

    Coach Dan Quinn said Tuesday that Daniels and Marcus Mariota are splitting first-team reps to begin training camp, Albert Breer of SI.com reports.

    "When [Daniels] is ready, we'll know," Quinn said. During June minicamp it was Daniels, the second overall pick in the 2024 draft, who received most of the first-team reps, but it sounds as though the Commanders want him to now earn the starting job. All things considered, it would come as a surprise if Mariota and not Daniels opened the season under center for Washington, but the team has yet to name a Week 1 starter, and it could take until the preseason before clarity on the quarterback competition is provided. Daniels may need some time to fully acclimate to the aerial components of offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury's scheme, but even if he's rough around the edges early on, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner projects as a high-upside fantasy option right off the bat due to his tremendous dual-threat ability.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Optimistic about new-look offense

    McLaurin said this summer that the offseason felt "like the start of something new, special," Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    The Commanders have mostly addressed shortcomings with band-aids throughout McLaurin's tenure, but the changes this offseason were drastic, highlighted by new head coach Dan Quinn and No. 2 overall draft pick Jayden Daniels. The latter figures to become the 10th different starting QB that McLaurin has played with in the NFL, and Kliff Kingsbury is the fourth offensive coordinator. The veteran wideout said Daniels was impressive during spring practices, showing "amazing" touch on his deep ball and "really good anticipation over the middle of the field." It remains to be seen how that translates to actual games, but there's at least some chance of McLaurin experiencing above-average QB play for the first time in his career.

  • Commanders' Jer'Zhan Newton: Starting camp on NFI list

    The Commanders placed Newton (foot) on the active/non-football injury list Friday.

    Newton continues to recover from a pair of surgeries, having undergone a procedure on his right foot in January, then on his left foot in mid-May. The rookie second-round pick will be eligible to come off the NFI list at any point in training camp or the preseason once he's ready to practice, but Washington hasn't yet offered an expected timetable for his return. However, head coach Dan Quinn did say in early June that Newton is "hitting all of his markers" in his recovery.
