ASHBURN, Virginia — There won’t be any decision for Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins to make. If his wife goes into labor and the Redskins have a game, Cousins will be playing.

Cousins’ wife, Julie, is due with their first child on Sept. 18 — a day after the Redskins play at the Los Angeles Rams.

Redskins QB Kirk Cousins doesn't plan to stop playing no matter when his first child is born.

Redskins QB Kirk Cousins doesn’t plan to stop playing no matter when his first child is born.

The Redskins host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 10, but at least in that case he’d be near the hospital and could drive there after the game. But if they play in Los Angeles and she goes into labor, he’ll need to make a cross-country flight to join her.
“If I’m available, I’ll be there,” Cousins said. “Or if we’re in L.A. or playing Philly, it is what it is and I’ll get there as fast as I can.”

Last season, Colt McCoy’s wife had her baby induced six days before her due date of Thanksgiving — and the Redskins were playing at Dallas. Julie Cousins did not want to have their baby induced, and the couple was comfortable with that decision.

“She’s really supportive,” Kirk Cousins said, “and knew from day one that she would rather let the baby come when it comes and we’ll react accordingly.”

The couple revealed via social media in March that they would be having a boy.

Cousins, 29, will enter his third season as the Redskins’ starting quarterback — and his second playing under the franchise tag. He has thrown for club-record yardage totals each of the past two seasons, including 4,917 yards.

Washington Redskins safety Su’a Cravens told some within the organization this weekend that he is planning to retire, but a meeting with the team’s coaches and executives has changed his mind for now, according to league sources.

Cravens, 22, who was nursing a knee injury, was put on the team’s exempt/left squad list later Sunday. His roster spot was taken by offensive tackle T.J. Clemmings, who was claimed off waivers from the Minnesota Vikings.
Cravens informed the other defensive backs in a group chat Saturday night that he was going to retire and then exited the session by saying “Peace out,” a source said. They were upset with him and what they heard.

Cravens is one of the league’s youngest players, a second-round pick last year, and is struggling with his transition to the NFL. Washington officials want to help him through his issues rather than have him walk away from the game, which would make him one of the youngest NFL players to date to retire.

One person who had played with Cravens in the past and considers him a friend said he was not surprised when he heard the news Sunday. He added that you never know if a player loves the game until he faces adversity.
An article on SI.com this spring stated that Cravens left teammates wondering about his desire by not pushing through harder with a bruised biceps injury. In training camp, linebacker Will Compton was miked up for CSN Washington and was heard prodding Cravens about his motivation for being on the field. Compton told him, “I haven’t felt it from you. The last two [practices], you haven’t gave me anything.”

Compton wanted to know what helped him push through the tough part of camp and Cravens later told him, “I can’t fake it, though.”

Washington did not respond to questions about the safety.

“Shocking,” Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger said upon hearing the news. “He has to handle what he needs to handle, whether mental or with his family. We’re here to support him. That’s tough. I’m not in those shoes, so I can’t speak on him, so whatever he’s dealing with I’m praying for him and hopefully he’ll be back.

“If it’s family issues, personal issues, whatever he’s dealing with, I’m supportive. Hopefully he’ll deal with what he has to deal with and be back out here.”

Linebacker Mason Foster said he was surprised by the news.

“Definitely. He’s a great player, a great person,” Foster said. “People have lives outside of football and sometimes you have to handle that first. Hopefully he gets that resolved and comes back and helps us win games this year. I’ll try to talk to him later on, tell him I’m praying for him, but I’m going straight to the iPad and watching Philly.”
“You never know what’s in anyone’s life so you make sure that’s fine first and foremost before you get back to your job,” said Redskins corner Josh Norman.

“This game tests your wits in every form, every facet of your body, your mentals. Everything. If you’re not ready to come back and play and give it your all and your heart isn’t in it, then you’ll seriously go out there and get hurt.”

After practice, multiple players said coach Jay Gruden addressed the players about Cravens’ situation and said when discussing it with the media to stay focused on the season opener. Gruden did not address the media Sunday, but will do so Tuesday.

Several days ago, a source close to Cravens said he was anxious to return from his injury and that he was confident he’d be ready for the opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. Over the last few weeks, there had been some unease in the building about Cravens’ missed time and what the team could expect from him. Indeed, the Washington Post reported that he had been talking to some members of the coaching staff over the last few weeks about retiring.

Elite Josh Norman Jersey

ASHBURN, Va. — Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman(Josh Norman Jersey)’s celebration cost his team 15 yards Sunday. It’s about to cost him a lot more financially.

Norman said the league has fined him $10,000 for shooting an imaginary bow and arrow to celebrate his fourth quarter interception in Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns. He said he is appealing the fine.

It’s the second consecutive week the NFL has fined Norman. He was fined $48,620 for a hit on New York Giants receiver Sterling Shepard in Week 3, leading to an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Last year, Norman was fined $26,044 for two separate incidents in his matchup against New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

Norman was penalized 15 yards for his celebratory act Sunday, when he ran near the sideline to “shoot” the bow and arrow. He said after the game he had been warned about doing it before a previous game. But, Norman said, because it was a different officiating crew, he thought he’d get a warning first instead of a flag.

“I have my speech on it and we’ll see what happens,” Norman said. “I hope and pray they eliminate the $10,000 fine. That was too much. At the same time we’ll see how it goes and whatever the outcome is, I respect it and I respect the league and what they’re trying to do.

“It’s hard but it’s fair. It’s one of those things when you’re the hunted you have to continue to rise above it all.”

Still, Norman said he doesn’t understand why it was a penalty. And he’s now looking for new ways to celebrate big plays.

“I don’t get it,” he said. “I might have to ask fans what can I do next if they take that away from me.”
