Commanders-Lions injury report.

RB D’Andre Swift among the DNP’s for Detroit.
Other injury updates: Kam Curl is going through individuals, same with Jonathan Allen. Wes Schweitzer is on the side field
Lions running back D’Andrew Swift didn’t practice today due to an ankle injury
Commanders TEs had a very solid debut and they’re hoping to be joined by this guy in Detroit. Cole Turner missed the opener but Ron is optimistic he can suit up in Week 2
Cole Turner was a full participant @ practice today — he and Logan Thomas in 12 is extremely intriguing. Two big, athletic bodies to flex out.

Whole new dynamic for Wentz with those two healthy.
Nice to see 8️⃣ out at practice today
Two and a half weeks after being shot twice in an attempted robbery, Brian Robinson Jr. is back out with the #Commanders on the bike. Incredible.@nbcwashington @JPFinlayNBCS #HTTC
Can a rookie win comeback player of the year? Asking for a friend…

Commanders insider @JPfinlayNBCS sat down with Coach Rivera following the @Commanders Week 1 win. He credited the fans for the high energy at FedEx Field on Sunday.
Jahan Dotson is your newest favorite to win OROY

+2500 ➡️ +900
Terry only speaks facts
Dyami Brown played 3 snaps Sunday. 2 runs / 1 pass.
Darrick Forrest led all NFL safeties with an 91.5 PFF rating this week.
Top 5 fantasy QBs through Week 1 (ESPN):

1. Patrick Mahomes
2. Josh Allen
3. Carson Wentz
4. Jalen Hurts (RB)
5. Justin Herbert
I love the way Ron Rivera is building Carson Wentz back up.
Carson Wentz had 2 of the 5 most improbable TD passes of the week (3. 49 yards, Terry McLaurin; 5. 24 yards, Jahan Dotson). per @NextGenStats
In recent years there have been two guys to come to Washington that everyone told me were bad guys and when they got here it couldn’t be further from the truth

One is Deangelo Hall and the other is Desean Jackson. I am getting close to adding Wentz to that lost
Jonathan Allen doesn’t hold back when sticking up for quarterback Carson Wentz.
That’s Donovan Jeter in the 91. Ryan Kerrigan remains on the coaching staff.
Don’t see this too often. Del Rio calls a CB blitz off both sides with Tampa-2 behind it. Both DTs sink drop back into coverage to replace the CBs. Very risky, definitely opportunities for the Jags, but pressure from Jackson off the edge did enough to make it work.
Just to show people want to push their narrative and don’t actually pay attention I have had several people tell me the 3-12 the Jags had on 3rd downs was due to drops.

There wasn’t one drop on 3rd down. Not one. The closest was a pass off of Jones fingertips on 3rd and goal
After watching the Lions’ opener, I feel comfortable saying two things.

Washington better…

1) Be on-point with tackling. Swift, Hockenson, St. Brown and Williams are all combinations of powerful and shifty
2) Be in sync on the O-line. Detroit brought crazy heat on Jalen Hurts
Aidan Hutchinson only had one tackle in his rookie debut but the Lions sure tried some funky things with him. Look at how close he and Charles Harris are on the left side of the D-line here. Overall, Jalen Hurts was able to run away from pressure, something that Wentz can’t do
ESPN FPI giving Commanders a 56% chance of winning vs. Detroit.
One more note on the game-winner from Sunday: Nice blitz pickup from RB JD McKissic. He’s come a long way since he was a college WR.
One game down for Logan Thomas.

He will continue to get better with every game.

I spoke with the @Commanders tight end after practice today.
Scott Turner only had 4 games of play calling experience when he arrived in Washington. Will Grier and Kyle Allen. Since then he shuffled through; Allen, Smith, Haskins, Heinicke and some guy named Garrett Gilbert.

He’s only 40. Buckle up. Might have his guy.
Two forever-linked legends, reunited at RFK.

Mike McCarthy doesn’t want to put a timetable on Dak Prescott’s return: “Everyone feels good about the surgery that Dak went through from the medical perspective. From my perspective, he had surgery. These next 7-10 days he’s in a healing stage. Let’s get over that hurdle first.”
On Dak Prescott’s injury and the Dallas Cowboys: “The sky isn’t falling. I’ve got new for you: the sky wasn’t that high to begin with; the fall isn’t very far.” – @ColinCowherd

Here’s a **very preliminary** look at the 2023 compensatory pick projection on OTC after one week of snap counts in the book. (2020 Resolution JC-2A comp picks not included.)

There’s obviously a long way to go, and some of this will likely change throughout the regular season.
