Redskins Challenge: Josh Norman, it\s time to \Put up your Dukes\

5 bold predictions for Redskins vs. Texans in NFL Week 11

1:57 Ovechkin Skates with Special Needs Players 0:50 Caps One-Timers: Worst Tape Job 1:30 An early giving season for Josh Norman 1:53 Trent Williams makes a surprise return to Redskins practice 2:02 Lamar Jackson, RGIII prepared to start for Ravens On Saturday the Washington Redskins announced their activation of running back Byron Marshall off of the injured reserve list. Marshall is eligible to play in Week 11 against the Houston Texans.

The move to add Marshall back on the 53-man roster is not too surprising. Earlier this week Samaje Perine was ruled out for Week 11 with a calf injury. Only Adrian Peterson and Kapri Bibbs were the healthy backs left on the active roster. Chris Thompson is still not available to play.

RB Byron Marshall comes off IR, Brian Quick cut

Before the season even started Marshall was placed on the IR with a sprained ACL and MCL. Those injuries occuring in the second preseason game of the season.

In his second season with Washington, Marshall has only played in four games. Dont expect him to see significant time against the Texans behind Peterson and Bibbs, either. It will probably just be some fill-in opportunities in the backfield. At worst, he sees a notable amount of snaps if one of the two gets dinged up.

In terms of what well be doing on game day itself, expect “Countdown To Kickoff” to post at 8 a.m. CST on Sunday, with the first open thread for the game posting promptly at 11:45 a.m. CST. Well add live open threads each quarter after that, and then well have a post-game reaction thread as soon as the games over.

The release of Quick comes with Trey Quinn coming back this week as well. Placed on waivers, Quick only had three catches for 18 yards through six games for the Redskins.

Injuries have absolutely decimated Washington’s receiving corps this season. Luckily for the Redskins, rookie receiver Trey Quinn will make his return from injury against the Houston Texans in Week 11 on Sunday.

It is unclear how much Quinn will actually play against the Texans. He will however, definitely play on special teams and should pend some time at receiver. But not matter how large or small his role may be, Quinn is ready to do anything the Redskins ask him to do.

With Jamison Crowder out, the Redskins will need Quinn to step up if the Redskins call on him. And based on his attitude, it seems like Quinn is more than looking forward to helping the Redskins win their second straight game.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports 27.5 points scored by Tampa Bay prediction: under (62%) actual: Tampa Bay, who came into the game ranked 8th in points per game on offense at 28.6, scored 3 points against the Redskins. They had been held to less than 26 points only once in their first 8 games (10 points at Chicago, Week 4). 2.5 sacks by the Redskins defense prediction: over (87%) actual: The defense sacked Fitzpatrick two times — once by Ioannidis and once by Preston Smith. The Smith sack resulted in a forced fumble/turnover. Cassanova McKenzie took Fitzpatrick down a third time in the game when he turned the corner nearly parallel to the ground to beat the tackle on a beautiful defensive play that was negated by a holding call against Josh Norman. This looks like Von Miller is a Redskin. Big time edge-bending explosiveness from Cassanova McKinzy.
