The Commanders, preparing for a game against the Tennessee Titans, are also off to a slow start to the season.

They are 1-3 and have struggled largely thanks to quarterback Carson Wentz’s poor play.

Wentz has thrown 1031 yards, eight touchdowns, five interceptions and completed 107 of 172 passes. His total QBR for the season is only 35.7.

On the plus side, Washington, who called Brian Robinson Jr. drove back, returned to the practice field this week and got closer to full health.

Robinson was shot twice in the leg five weeks ago after falling victim to what police reported as a robbery and carjacking.

He remains on the non-football injury list, but now that he has returned to training, the team has 21 days to put him back on the active roster, or keep him on the NFI for the entire season.
