Minnesota Vikings acquire wide receiver Greg Camarillo from the Miami Dolphins

The Washington Redskins have made some drastic improvements during the NFL offseason as they were able to bring in a franchise quarterback in six-time Pro Bowler Donovan McNabb and major upgrade at head coach in two-time Super Bowl champion Mike Shanahan.

Even though the Redskins will have their work cut out for them this season, especially within the NFC East division (Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles), the team should be much better moving forward with the possibility of having a potent offense with Donovan McNabb under center.

Unfortunately, the team has already had to deal with a fairly big setback as McNabb has suffered a sprained ankle and will have to miss the team’s next preseason game against the New York Jets.

As of right now, the perennial Pro Bowler’s playing status for the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys on September 12th seems to be alright as he is still a go for the time being, but it is uncertain how serious this injury might be.

Hopefully, head coach Mike Shanahan will keep his starting quarterback off the field for the last preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals as well as they should give McNabb some much needed time to continue the healing process for his injured ankle.

In the meantime, Rex Grossman will be taking the majority of the snaps for the Washington Redskins moving forward and despite his reputation for being a second rate quarterback in this league, the former Chicago Bears gunslinger has played really well in the preseason and has become a viable backup for Donovan McNabb. With Grossman in, NFL sports betting is always somewhat interesting.

Even though this team will be much improved this season, they have one of the toughest schedules in the NFL and could be headed towards a rough season of disappointment.
