      Good afternoon Redskins fans!  I have once again been invited to sit in the relative comfort of the press box and shout my thoughts into the void via this blog.  As you watch the game today and see the rain  pour relentlessly from the heavens, know that I am safe and dry.  Know also that @Spaceman Spiff is out there somewhere, cold and unappreciated, rolling around in the muck trying to capture that perfect picture.  Maybe say a little prayer for his health (or laugh, whatever, I’m not judging you).  Also, be sure not to miss the pictures he posts on this site after each game.     
       
      Before we get into today's Redskins game, I want give some thanks for more positive occurrences in DC sports.  Congrats to the Washington Mystics for winning their first championship.  Congrats go out to the Washington Nationals as well for reaching the world series.  These two teams (along with the Caps) are working hard to change the sports related mood around this town, and we're all happier for it. 
       
      Lets move now into less cheerful topics, namely your Washington Redskins!  Yow know things are going bad, and I mean really dang bad, when your team has gone through three quarterbacks and two coaches and your not even half way through the season.  Today's fresh hell comes in the form of a specter of the our recent past coming to smirk at our misfortune.  Im talking of course of Kyle.  Kyle's spent the week assuring everyone that he isn’t holding a grudge, while very obviously holding a grudge.  “Everything else.”  You know what I’m talking about. 
       
      If all he brought to town were his hurt feelings we wouldn’t have a problem.  Sadly, he’s arrived with an undefeated football team that the NFL says we have to play this week.  This feels entirely unfair. 
       
      My generic key to the game:  Run the ball and stop the run.  The team (spoiler alert: 49ers) that does this today will win.   
       
      Redskins Inactives  
      QB Colt McCoy  
      S Deshazor Everett  
      CB Josh Norman  
      RB Chris THompson  
      LB Josh Harvey-Clemons 
      G Wes Martin  
      TE Vernon Davis  
       
      49ers inactives  
      QB CJ Beathard 
      WR Deebo Samuel  
      CB Ahkello Witherspoon  
      FB Kyle Juszczyk 
      T Mike McGLinchey 
      T Joe Staley 
      DL DJ Jones 
       
      1st Quarter Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers
       
      Callahan wasn’t playing around when he said he wanted to run the ball.  That first drive was all runs, and looked great... right up until they tried to pass the ball.  Hopkins missed the relatively short fied goal, because of course he did.     

      Maybe Quinn isn’t a good choice to be returning punts?  Consider it.    
       
      That second Redskins drive looked more like what we’ve come to expect from this offense.  Run for negative yards, pass dropped, and an unsuccessful screen pass.  A quintessential Redskins three and out. 

      Passing yards this quarter:  Redskins 3. 49ers 9.  Are you not entertained?! 
       
      Half Time Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers 
       
      How happy are you to spend your Sunday afternoon watching this game?  Consider that some people paid money, to sit in a poncho, in the rain, to watch this game. 
       
      It’s now time for those half time adjustments that our beloved skins do so well.  It’s unlikely the second half mirrors the first. 
       
      3rd Quarter Update 
      Redskins 0 – 3 49ers  
       
      Good news, this game will not end in a 0-0 tie.  Those half time adjustments have kicked in as expected and the 49ers have found a way onto the scoreboard in this messy throwback game.  The Redskins have decided to spend the second half collecting holding penalties and sadness.  Mercifully, only one quarter remains. 
       
      End of Game Update 
      Redskins 0 – 9 49ers 
       
      Callahan hasn’t spent much time as head coach, but he’s already proven that his team can waste 2nd half timeouts like a veteran.  It makes little sense to adopt a strategy that shortens the game when your team is losing, and it makes even less sense when your team is short on time outs.  I’m not really sure what the thinking as late in this game.    
       
      Next week Kirk Cousins!

And to be fair, it specified "X-Ray TECH", not X-Rays....maybe the X-Ray Tech is the same guy that performs MRI's, so maybe he was actually speaking of an MRI ?

 

Hope so but until I hear news from a creditable source. I'm not believing anything.

Different machines different certifications. Different Techs. Most likely the guy who reported this does not know the difference.

Sure. Because all professional medical offices confiscate the phones of their patients to avoid this sort of thing.

 

Also, it's "HIPAA."

No because you are not supposed to discuss someone else's medical condition where others can hear the conversation. Like at the pharmacy or Dr office where there is a line you stand behind so you cannot hear private patient information. Violations like this get people fined and sued all the time. Disclosing medical information to an unauthorized 3rd party is a big deal. That is why I personally think the post is BS. This is Dr office 101 type stuff.

I don't know the details of the situation, so I don't know if they actually did this, but I imagine they're supposed to make some kind of effort to make sure their verbal reports are not done loud enough to be in earshot of other patients.

Not saying it happened either way. But we don't know. So it's not just about phones.

I remember when Guice tore his knee up in the preseason game, there was video of him laughing, joking, & saying it wasn't a big deal in the locker room after the game. It gave me some hope that it wasn't as bad, then came the MRI.   These kinds of injuries are weird because often times the person can still walk on the leg and look relatively normal despite the tear(s).

Also most Dr offices these days say no cell phone use beyond the waiting room. Most people do not comply but they have signs for this very reason. If you choose to use your phone and record something it is on you not them. You are violating their office policies and they can ask you to stop and it helps to protect them from liability. Either way I seriously doubt that cell phone report is accurate but who knows.

You can't sue the MDO for a HIPAA violation when they didn't violate HIPAA.   They didn't release any info to the press/media about their patient.  Some dude getting treatment there at the same time ease dropped and posted what they heard.  

 

Edit:  I used to get allergy shots a while back (for over a span of 27 years) and spent a lot of time in waiting rooms and waiting couches outside of the nurses station (where they did labs and gave shots).  You hear things even when you don't want to. 

 

The MD office I last went to, the X-Ray room was right down the hall from the waiting area outside the nurses station, from time to time you would hear patients asking questions to the Tech as they were leaving and being escorted back to the lobby or where they check out to pay.  Sometimes through closed doors you would hear someone talking or giving good/bad news (if it was a quiet day), sometimes it was just sounded like Charlie Browns teacher talking.......

My initial thought to the injury happening was that best result at this stage is fracture/dislocation of some kind. Anything in the region of a 3 month lay of right now would be major bonus. Hope we get lucky here.

Dwayne Haskins is no doctor and neither am I, but...

he witnessed the Foster injury and his response was

"I think he just got rolled up on. I think he'll be okay".

He didn't seem concerned about it. But then again, he hasn't seemed like the type of guy to get really emotional about too many things.

Not an official diagnosis, of course.

Take it FWIW.

How often does a fracture or discolation of the knee come without damage to the lingaments, though? I think the best case is some kind of hyper-extension. Not very optimistic, though.

Not even shocked, I've actually been mentally prepared to lose a couple of players in the first OTA. Good luck in your recovery Reuben

Not sure about the stats on this.  But as a child, I wrecked my bike, flew off and my knee slammed the curb.  I had a ton of fluid build up, had to be drained twice, multiple sets of x-rays done and it was deemed a dislocation and nothing torn.  This was back in 1988, so long time before MRIs were common practice, especially in small towns like I grew up in.

 

So it's possible......granted, I have have often wondered in my adult life if there was a partial tear or not.

I'm not sure that I trust someone who lets their phone's battery get so low before charging.

Based on what a a good rookie year.

 

That and a stellar College career - yeah. There have been very few doubts about his ability.

 

His ability to stay available due to injury or off field issues is another question.

I am no media expert but I've sat through a few MRIs with my son including for a leg injury -- in those cases they didn't take long at all.

Because he had a lot of off the field issues and already had injury concerns. I wasn't very hopeful that he would come into camp mentally and physically ready to go.
