Anthony Armstrong goes for the Riddler look

Anthony Armstrong AP

Redskins receiver Anthony Armstrong has a separated shoulder.  As a result, he’s practicing with a yellow jersey that has no number.

So Armstrong got creative, applying a question mark.  Upside down.

“I told him to put a yellow jersey on because he’s got an AC second-degree separation,” coach Mike Shanahan said after practice Monday, via quotes distributed by the team.  “Anytime you want to go practice and get some drill work, yet if somebody hits it or bumps into it, even your own player or a coach, and that just reminds people that he’s off limits and kind of stay away from him.”

The addition of the punctuation was unprecedented in Shanahan’s experiences.

“I haven’t seen the question mark before,” Shanahan said.  “I’ve got to admit that was something new.”

Armstrong would be wise to find a way to shed the yellow jersey.  He’s currently listed as a second-string receiver, higher on the depth chart that guys like Josh Morgan and Brandon Banks.

    The 6 WRs who will make the team are Garcon, Moss, Hankerson, Morgan, Briscoe and Armstrong. Odd man out is Banks because he can’t play WR and his dynamic on Kick/Punt Returns have been severly limited with the new rules. RG3 and this offense are going to the playoffs. Mark my words.

    The Redskins should use that as their logo, because they never know what they’re doing.

    The question mark is on his jersey is because he completely disappeared last season

    Stevie Johnson?

    Amp Armstrong is no Stevie Johnson. Dude is humble and appreciates being in the league.

    Who is your favorite Riddler? Thumbs up for Frank Gorshin, thumbs down for Jim Carrey.

    The upside question mark fits AAA perfectly. Based on his performance last year us Skins fans never know if he will catch a deep ball that hits him in the hands. Great speed, average hands.

    @hulkhogansays

    AAA has his work cut out for him. Aldrick Robinson and Terrance Austin are both younger than AAA and both can play special teams. Don’t write AAA’s name in permanent marker on the depth chart just yet.

    Ultimate warrior says that hogan needs to worry about his ex wife and butch daughter and stay off this post board. The skins will get ripped apart by the Gmen and sad to say it but the cowboys and eagles also. If he was in the NFC west I would say hey RG3 might have a shot at the playoffs but with this division and with the boys and the eagles having something to prove, the skins are the odd team out and if we’re making predictions I say good ol Rex will be behind center come week 8. Tell jake the snake about that one hulk.

    the guy that said banks won’t make the roster, hasn’t been paying much attention to camp obviously. banks has been dynamic as a wr in camp,creating separation and making great catches. the wideouts will be: garcon,moss,hankerson,Morgan,brizcoe,Armstrong,banks. you will see the others put on practice squad. I think we keep 7 wrs. if we keep 6, I see a battle with brizcoe/Armstrong.

    Yup, right at the luxury box with all the amenities!

    Sort of. Armstrong only appeared in the first place because even the pathetic washed up McNabb that played for the Redskins could throw the deep ball. The deep ball is really the reason Armstrong is in the league. He’s not a slot receiver, he’s not a possession receiver, he’s a deep ball specialist: Mike Wallace without the versatility.

    For those who don’t understand how bad Rex Grossman truly was: in 2011, the guy completed three passes for more than 15 yards minus yards after the catch. As in three passes that traveled farther than 15 yards through the air. I’m not kidding: three. Considering catching passes that travel more than 15 yards through the air is kind of the only thing Armstrong can do well, it’s no surprise he disappeared last year.

    It’s no way we keep 7 wrs. Not when we might carry 4 TE and I am sure we might keep a extra olinemen. I thank Armstrong is the odd man out if he doesn’t get healthy soon. I have Heard banks is have a good camp at WR and thr fact he can return makes him a soild keeper at WR5 or WR6.
