WASHINGTON COMMANDERS (7-10)
CAMP SITE: Ashburn, Virginia
LAST YEAR: New quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick injured his left hip in the season opener, pressing surprise playoff performer Taylor Heinicke into a starting role for the first time in his NFL career.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prime Video is turning to an experienced host for its coverage of “Thursday Night Football”.
Amazon announced Tuesday that Charissa Thompson will host the pregame, halftime and postgame coverage for its first season as the exclusive home of the primetime package.
NEW YORK (AP) — Ryan Fitzpatrick is taking his magic touch to the broadcast booth.
Amazon Prime Video announced Tuesday that Fitzpatrick, the recently retired journeyman quarterback nicknamed “FitzMagic,” is joining the streaming service as an analyst for its first season as the exclusive home of “Thursday Night Football.”
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The FitzMagic has run out.
Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is retiring, he confirmed to The Associated Press in a text message on Friday, ending a career that spanned 17 seasons and nine teams and made him one of the NFL's most colorful and beloved journeymen.
11. WASHINGTON COMMANDERS (7-10)
LAST SEASON: A season that started with high expectations coming off an NFC East title ultimately became more of a rebuilding year than coach Ron Rivera expected when he took the job in early 2020.
Ryan Fitzpatrick isn't walking through that door any time soon, which means Washington will continue to roll with Taylor Heinicke at quarterback with the season slipping away.
Coach Ron Rivera said Monday that Fitzpatrick would have an MRI on his injured right hip in a couple of weeks, which would then allow the team to set a course for the 38-year-old's return.
Ron Rivera said Monday he is not considering replacing Taylor Heinicke with Kyle Allen as Washington’s starting quarterback.
That means Heinicke is set to make his sixth consecutive start Sunday at the Green Bay Packers.
Derek Carr has heard all the accolades after his scintillating start to the season for the Las Vegas Raiders and has a message for those handing out praise: Cool it.
The back-to-back wins over Baltimore and Pittsburgh and the prolific numbers are nice, but Carr knows that won't matter if the Raiders can't beat Miami on Sunday in a rematch against the team that officially ended their playoff hopes late last season.
Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr underwent tests on his injured right ankle Monday but coach Jon Gruden expects him to be able to play this week.
Carr got hurt after throwing a TD pass to Foster Moreau in the third quarter of Sunday's 26-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Opening week of the NFL season often includes upsets (Steelers, Dolphins), over-the-top achievements (Raiders, Eagles) and underwhelming performances (Packers, Titans). Finding the correct ones is a major challenge for prognosticators.
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Even if Daniel Jones knows why he has been so successful in his career against Washington, the New York Giants quarterback wants no part of sharing that insight.
Each game is different, Jones insists, yet he's 4-0 against Washington and 4-19 against the rest of the NFL through his first two-plus pro seasons.
Ryan Fitzpatrick is going on injured reserve with a hip injury, and Washington is turning to Taylor Heinicke to start at quarterback against the New York Giants on Thursday night.
Cam Newton is not walking through that door, and Robert Griffin III is not walking through that door.
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Ryan Fitzpatrick waved to the crowd as he hobbled off the field, and the cheers of appreciation soon turned to boisterous chants of “Heinicke! Heinicke!”
Fitzpatrick injured his right hip midway through the second quarter of his Washington debut, and surprise playoff star Taylor Heinicke came on in relief.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Curtis Samuel may or may not be game ready. He certainly has his poker face on.
Washington's big-money addition at wide receiver took part in his first practice since offseason workouts Monday after dealing with a nagging groin injury and missing time on the NFL's COVID-19 list.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Ryan Fitzpatrick and his magnificent beard plan to lead Washington on to the field for the season opener against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sept. 12. The 38-year-old's role as starting quarterback was never in question.
New faces: QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, CB William Jackson, WR Curtis Samuel, WR Adam Humphries, TE Sammis Reyes, LB Jamin Davis, OT Sam Cosmi, WR Dyami Brown, G Ereck Flowers, OT Charles Leno, EDGE Shaka Toney, DB Benjamin St-Juste, LS Camaron Cheeseman.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Before Washington gets a new name, Ron Rivera's team has one more chance to add another division title.
After winning the NFC East at 7-9 in Rivera's first year, Washington faces higher expectations in what should be the final season before a new moniker is unveiled.
NEW YORK (AP) — Wait a second. He's playing where now?
With the NFL season about to kick off, it's time for a quick refresher on some familiar faces in new places. Otherwise, you might be scratching your head while drafting your fantasy football team or doing double takes when you flip on the games in Week 1.
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Taylor Heinicke does not think there is a quarterback competition at Washington’s training camp.
A year after waking up in his sister’s house wondering what to do every day, he’s just happy to get some snaps with the first-team offense and trying to stay ready in case anything happens to presumed starter Ryan Fitzpatrick.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Tua Tagovailoa brought the offense to the line of scrimmage, and after he took the snap and cocked his arm, he had a choice of five wide-open receivers.

LAST YEAR: After Dwayne Haskins was benched, Kyle Allen got injured and Washington started 2-7, Alex Smith took over to help the team win five of its final seven games behind a strong defense and capture the NFC East.
