Bashaud Breeland confident he’ll return to field and form this week

There was some bad injury news for the Redskins on Wednesday when coach Jay Gruden revealed that tight end Jordan Reed was being evaluated for a concussion after reporting symptoms on Tuesday.

Losing Reed would be a major blow to the offense in a big NFC East clash with the Eagles and it would leave more lifting for the defense to do on Sunday. In better injury news for the team, it looks like they’ll be getting some help back on that side of the ball.

Cornerback Bashaud Breeland has missed the last two games with an ankle injury, but said Wednesday that he’s “confident” he’ll be ready to play this weekend after getting in a limited practice. Breeland also said he’s confident a season that started with Antonio Brown putting up a big night against him will feature better things once he’s back in the lineup.

“They shouldn’t have to keep telling me I played bad even though my team [is] winning,” Breeland said, via the Washington Post. “It’s a new start. It’s a fresh week. You don’t have to keep relaying that to me. I know that. Those plays lost us the game, and I know that. I don’t fault them for what they’re saying. But them knowing me, and if you’re a real Redskins fan and you know me, then you should know that I’m always going to bounce back. That was my only issue. It don’t bother me when they say that.”

Cornerback Dashaun Phillips and safety/linebacker Su’a Cravens were also limited in practice, so there may be multiple reinforcements for the Redskins defense come Sunday.

  1. Breeland is a good, young CB who has had a rough start this year. On the flip side, Josh Norman has been everything advertised; he’s been great. Hopefully Breeland can return to form and help the Redskins beat the Eagles who really have nothing to worry about receiver-wise aside from Jordan Matthews and Darren Sproles.

    Hail to the Redskins from this proud Native American.

  2. I cant think of any one on the Redskins roster whose stock has dropped more than Breeland’s. In training camp he looked like the #1 corner, but has played so bad I dont even want him back in the line up.

  3. Lol. The only people that think Breeland is a good corner are delusional Washington fans.

    He’s been average at best, but since that was better than the other trash they’d had before, he was seen as something great. The first two games showed you all you need to know.

    Without Norman, this awful defense would be headed toward all-time awfulness levels.
