Jonathan Allen

Jonathan Allen

The Washington Redskins won’t bring back their first-round draft pick, Alabama defensive lineman Jonathan Allen, for the final two games of the season, Coach Jay Gruden said Monday. Instead, the team will give the defensive lineman a few more months to recover from the foot surgery that derailed his rookie season in Week 6.

“I think by the time he gets back out to practice and gets in shape, I think the season will be over,” Gruden told reporters Monday, adding that he felt the 6-foot-3, 288-pound Allen was in good shape in general but noted that “football shape” was a different standard.

The plan instead is to point toward Allen’s return for offseason workouts next spring.

Allen, whom the Redskins chose with the 17th pick overall, suffered a Lisfranc injury in the Oct. 15 victory over San Francisco and underwent surgery soon after. Redskins officials said in late November they were hopeful he’d return to the lineup. But, as Gruden indicated Monday, it appears wiser to ensure he is fully recovered before returning to the game.

Allen becomes the team’s second consecutive first-round pick to have an injury-shortened rookie season.

Wide receiver Josh Doctson, whom the Redskins selected 22nd overall in the 2016 NFL draft, appeared in just two games and caught two balls before an Achilles’ ailment sidelined him the remainder of the season.

Asked how he’d grade Allen’s rookie campaign, Gruden said: “It seems like it was so long ago that he played, I can’t really remember. He was off to a good start, really. I think his strength at the point of attack was outstanding, his ability to play the run was good and then we used him in nickel situations also, which he was pushing the pocket extremely well. Sack production didn’t really tell the story about how productive he was. I think he played very well.”

In other injury news, Gruden said that cornerback Bashaud Breeland suffered an AC joint (shoulder) sprain in Sunday’s 20-15 victory over the Arizona Cardinals, and rookie Ryan Anderson, the team’s second-round pick in the 2017 draft, injured his patella tendon (knee). He described both players as “day-to-day.” Safety Montae Nicholson remains in the NFL concussion protocol.

Aqib Talib

Aqib Talib

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — With cornerback Aqib Talib’s suspension now official — it was reduced from two games to one after his appeal hearing Tuesday — the Denver Broncos have two major items to wrestle with over the next week.

The first is that they’ve had a team captain suspended for fighting, an oddity few folks in the league have dealt with. The second is that the to-do list in the passing game for the Miami Dolphins is now to throw the ball at anybody not named Chris Harris Jr.

Given that Talib has been named to the Pro Bowl three times and been a first-team All-Pro selection once (in 2016) in his four years with the Broncos, he will certainly be missed in coverage. He’s also earned enough cache in the Broncos’ locker room that his teammates voted him captain.

Former Broncos coach Gary Kubiak often said Talib was one of the hardest-working and smartest players he had been around. But once you’ve been selected a team captain, there is more to do than walk out for the coin toss.

On that list, at least in Broncos coach Vance Joseph’s mind, is to not get tossed out of a game. But Talib was tossed for rekindling a long-standing feud and fighting with Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree on Sunday.

“It’s unacceptable; we can’t do it,” is how Joseph framed it earlier this week. “We can’t lose our best corner in a game like that. It obviously hurt us down the stretch. I told our guys, if we can defuse those things, we have to defuse them. We can’t fall into the trap of getting into a fight that ends up losing one of our best players. We can’t do it. It’s unacceptable; we can’t do it.”

So, in a season in which the Broncos were shut out for the first time in a quarter century and suffered their first seven-game losing streak since 1967, they’ve now had a team captain ejected from a game and then suspended. This was after a team captain (quarterback Trevor Siemian) was made a game-day inactive against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Losses, pressure, mistakes and personnel decisions that haven’t worked out have dented the Broncos’ beloved culture this season. Talib’s suspension is now on the growing pile of missteps.

Talib has had moments before — he had some off-the-field problems in Tampa and missed the Broncos’ visit to the White House in the months following their Super Bowl 50 win due to gunshot wounds he had suffered in his leg that offseason. He has admitted to trying to grow beyond those things now that he has a family of his own.

Talib and the Broncos had hoped the NFL would look at the circumstances of Sunday’s fight — Talib said, “I hope the league sees how it started” — and his appeal said that they believed Crabtree just kept coming after Talib and that a fight was almost inevitable. The suspension reductions — Crabtree’s also was reduced from two games to one — show both players made some procedural points worth noting.

For his part, Talib said his week he was “disappointed” that he and Crabtree started up the fight again in the end zone after extracting themselves from the initial scuffle.

“The second half of it could have definitely been defused,” Talib said. “That’s what I’m disappointed about — the second half of it. The first half, that was him being extra. That’s what he wanted. He didn’t want to play that game. He wanted to come out and wrestle all day.”

From a football perspective, it means Harris won’t get much of a look from the Dolphins if the Broncos don’t match him up on specific receivers. The past two Broncos opponents have been especially effective at isolating Bradley Roby or rookie Brendan Langley in coverage.

The Bengals went after Roby plenty — including on a touchdown by A.J. Green — and the Raiders went after Langley after Talib’s ejection, including on a 9-yard touchdown catch by Amari Cooper. The Dolphins, with former Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase as their coach, figure to spread the Denver defense out, forcing it to play nickel or dime and then direct the ball away from Harris.

Joseph said Talib’s absence adversely affected the Broncos against the Raiders. There’s no reason to think it won’t have the same effect against the Dolphins, yet another self-inflicted problem in a season full of them.

Los Angeles Rams

Los Angeles Rams

After a 4-12 finish last year, the Los Angeles Rams are in the midst of an eye-popping turnaround with a 7-2 this season. One big reason for that is quarterback Jared Goff’s rebound from an abysmal rookie campaign.

He’s revived his career this season — throwing for 2,385 yards to go along with 16 touchdown and only four interceptions in nine games.

He posted a 63.6 passer rating in seven games last season. That’s up to a 101.5 rating this year, the second-largest improvement over two seasons in NFL history, according to NFL research.

Those numbers are no accident. The 23-year-old is playing with confidence and authority under new head coach Sean McVay — traits you didn’t see when Jeff Fisher was in Goff’s ear. He’s playing the best football of his career so far, and spurring the Rams’ playoff push.

Goff has reinvigorated Los Angeles’ offense by successfully taking shots down field, spreading the ball around to a newly loaded group of playmakers, and by avoiding back-breaking turnovers.
The deep pass is working for Goff

Last season, Goff only completed four deep passes (20 yards or more) on 205 total attempts in his seven starts. This season, prior to the Rams’ Week 10 matchup against the Houston Texans, Goff held a 104.7 deep passer rating, which is 10th-best among quarterbacks —according to Pro Football Focus. He was 2-for-3 on deep shots last week against the Texans.

He’s completed nine passes this season that traveled 40 yards or more through the air, which is tied for a league-high. The Rams’ offensive line, anchored by left tackle Andrew Whitworth, a free agent addition last spring, has done a great job of providing clean pockets. Whitworth has five games this season where he hasn’t allowed a single pressure to get to his quarterback, including the last two weeks. Goff has only been sacked 13 times in nine games.

When the Rams’ offensive line gives Goff ample time to survey the field and make throws, he’ll take shots down the field. Just watch this 94-yard touchdown pass to Robert Woods last week.

Woods ran a post route and made cornerback Johnathan Joseph look silly.

Woods told ESPN’s Alden Gonzalez that “it’s probably my longest play in NFL, college, high school — ‘Madden,’” Woods said. “It was a big play.”

Goff is willing to target any player who runs a deep route. If that player is able to create separation, Goff will rifle a pass in his direction. Just ask Sammy Watkins, who burned the New York Giants with this 67-yard touchdown pass in Week 9.

Goff launched this pretty pass, which traveled 60 yards through the air, to Watkins — who galloped past Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Landon Collins with ease.

The Rams have players who can make big plays at any moment. And what makes Goff’s play impressive this season is that he wants to get everyone involved on splash plays.
Spreading the ball around

Los Angeles’ offense ranks in the top 10 in nearly every statical category. This team averages a league-high 32.9 points per game. What’s fascinating about this passing attack is everyone gets in on the action.

Back in October, McVay told Rich Hammond of The Orange County Register that they do not focus on targeting one player on offense.

“When you do have the variety of skill players that we have, you don’t want to just force-feed a guy,” McVay said. “So I think that enables us to be able to spread the field and use everybody.”

In nine games this season, Goff completed at least one pass to an average of 7.3 different players a game. If you’re not convinced, look at how well he spread the ball around in the Rams’ blowout victory against the Giants in Week 9.

You never know who will make a big play on this offense. It could be veteran players like Watkins, Woods, or … Tavon Austin.

Woods told Gonzalez that “this offense has so many weapons.”

“A lot of people are touching the ball,” Woods said. Austin agreed with Woods, saying “that’s the good thing about this offense.”

But opposing defenses also have to keep eyes on rookie tight end Gerald Everett and rookie receiver Cooper Kupp. In fact, New York underestimated Everett — and Goff made them pay with this 44-yard throw.

McVay has done a masterful job of surrounding Goff with talent. Goff no longer has to stare down one target and risk the possibly turning the ball over — something he hasn’t done a lot this season.
Cutting back on the mistakes

When Goff was under center for the Rams in his rookie season, every drive was a disaster waiting to happen. He committed nine turnovers in 2016, including seven interceptions in seven games.

However, Goff only amassed five turnovers so far this season, only four of those being interceptions. He has fewer turnovers than quarterbacks like Matt Ryan (11), Ben Roethlisberger (11), Carson Wentz (7), and Dak Prescott (6). Goff played mostly mistake-free football in six games and hasn’t committed a turnover over the past two games.

After the Rams defeated Houston in Week 10, McVay praised Goff’s decision making during the post-game press conference.

“He continues to gain a grasp of exactly what we’re trying to get done — the intent of the playcalls, being that extension of the coaching staff,” McVay said.

“We threw it a lot today. And when he didn’t turn over the football over at all, that’s big-time. And you feel very comfortable and confident to be able to put the game in his hands, and he’s shown why.”

Thanks to Goff’s tour de force performances this season, the Rams sit atop of the NFC West at 7-2. Los Angeles won six of its last seven matchups and the last three games by a combined score of 117-24. They own the league’s best point differential at +134 this season.

The Rams are in great position to clinch a playoff spot for the first time since 2004, and Goff is steering the team in the right direction.
