offensive tackle has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL’s Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, according to an NFL spokesperson.

“Today, Trent Williams was suspended by the NFL under the terms of the Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse for the next four games,” the Redskins said in a statement. “We met with Trent today to discuss this unfortunate news. Per the terms of the Policy, Trent will be permitted to participate in team meetings and workout at the Redskins’ facilities throughout this time. The Redskins are counting on Trent to help our team with wholesale jerseys when he returns from suspension. Our focus will now turn to the Minnesota Vikings jerseys after our bye this upcoming weekend. Any questions related to this matter should be directed to the NFL or NFLPA.”

Williams’ suspension begins immediately. He will be eligible to return to the field on Dec. 5 after Washington’s game against Arizona. Per the terms of the policy, Williams will be allowed to attend meetings and work out at the facility.

Williams’ forced departure is a significant blow to the Redskins’ offense. The 28-year-old left tackle is a four-time selection and the anchor of an offensive line that protects quarterback Kirk Cousins jersey, who ranks 10th in average time to throw at 2.75 seconds, per Next Gen Stats. A dropoff in the 14th-ranked rushing attack could be expected for Washington as well in the absence of Williams, though we’re left to see on cheap jerseys in the weeks ahead.

Second-year pro Ty Nsekhe is listed next on the Redskins’ depth chart, and with the trade deadline having passed, seems to be their best option to replace Williams for the next month. Nsekhe has spent time with the Colts, Rams and Saints before joining the Redskins in February 2015.

The Redskins announced RGIII’s release Monday afternoon. The only surprise regarding the news was that it took so long for the Redskins to finalize, but they wanted to make sure that starter Kirk Cousins was under contract for 2016 before making anything official. Cousins signed his franchise tag tender last week.

In theory, this was to ensure their quarterback’s health in an effort to maintain his trade value. In reality, Griffin played like the third-best quarterback on the team the last two seasons behind Kirk Cousins jersey and . He was due $16.1 million in 2016 as part of the fifth-year option on his rookie contract. RGIII goes down as a new CBA footnote, the first player to be released after having his fifth-year option picked up.

The start of Griffin’s career was anything but a footnote. A standout rookie campaign in 2012 made RGIII a superstar after being drafted No. 2 overall, culminating in a Redskins playoff berth and NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors over . His career was never the same, however, after tearing his ACL and MCL in the Redskins’ playoff loss to the .

Griffin wound up getting benched under two coaches: and Jay Gruden jersey. Griffin was named the team’s starter last offseason by Gruden, but never got his job and authentic NFL jerseys back after suffering a preseason loss to the Lions last August 20. Griffin was one of the least effective starters in the league in 2014, with four touchdowns and six picks in seven starts. He did not appear comfortable in Gruden’s offense and didn’t use his mobility as a weapon nearly as much as he did as a rookie.

Griffin will have a market as a free agent, but it should only be as a backup for now. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported last week the Chiefs, Broncos and Cowboys each would be interested in the 26-year-old quarterback once he hits the open market. Playing behind an established starter where Griffin’s big name is less of a story could be his best route.

The Redskins have been a mixed bag on the ground, but Matt Jones and from-the-wilderness rookie were brilliant on Sunday, helping Washington to 230 rushing yards at a wild 7.0 yards per tote. The Eagles rolled into FedEx having allowed just five touchdowns all season, but they failed to control the trenches against the Redskins in this divisional bout.

The Eagles hung around thanks to help from unusual places, as safety scored on a pick-six just minutes after rookie Wendell Smallwood jersey ripped off a gorgeous 86-yard kick return touchdown midway through the second quarter. The team hurt itself repeatedly, though, with 114 yards in penalties off a ridiculous 13 flags. The Eagles have suffered back-to-back games with 110-plus penalty yardage for the first time since 1952.

is a fascinating athlete who notched his third touchdown of the season after shredding the Ravens last week with an 85-yard punt return to the house. Sunday’s score — a beautiful 16-yard grab in the back-left corner of the end zone — marked the fourth touchdown of the year for a Redskins wideout now serving as a core member of Washington’s air attack.

It gets no easier for the skidding Eagles, who play eight of their final 11 games against clubs that currently have a winning record, including the Vikings, Cowboys, Falcons, Seahawks, Packers, Redskins, Ravens and Cowboys.
