  • Commanders' Chris Rodriguez: Gets three carries in debut

    Rodriguez took three carries for seven yards in Sunday's 20-16 win over Arizona.

    The rookie sixth-round pick got a carry on each of his three snaps, working as a distant No. 3 back in terms of playing time but finishing with only one fewer touch than Antonio Gibson, who lost a fumble early and managed only 19 total yards. Starter Brian Robinson also didn't have a great day, averaging 3.1 YPC on his 19 carries, albeit with a receiving TD and the silver lining of a 61 percent snap share. Rodriguez isn't likely to see much work in Week 2 at Denver but should be kept in mind for the future in case Robinson and Gibson don't stay healthy or productive.

  • Commanders' Chris Rodriguez: Gets spot on roster

    Rodriguez has a spot on Washington's initial 53-man roster, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The sixth-round rookie out of Kentucky is one of three running backs, behind Brian Robinson and Antonio Gibson. While he can't match Gibson's speed and receiving skills, the 224-pound Rodriguez might be able to do a reasonable impression of Robinson in the trenches if tasked with filling in for him this year. Rodriguez had seven carries for 52 yards in Washington's final preseason game to lock down a roster spot ahead of Jonathan Williams (undisclosed) and Jaret Patterson.

  • Commanders' Chris Rodriguez: Makes case for roster spot

    Rodriguez took seven carries for 52 yards in Saturday's 21-19 preseason win over Cincinnatti.

    With Antonio Gibson and Brian Robinson rested for the final preseason games, Rodriguez got the start and had a couple big runs early. He seems to be in line for the No. 3 RB job, though third-year pro Jaret Patterson also had a nice night (eight carries for 51) and 29-year-old Jonathan Williams would probably offer more on special teams. Rodriguez, a rookie sixth-round pick, is probably the best fit if the goal is to provide power-running depth behind Robinson.

  • Commanders' Chris Rodriguez: Catching passes at OTAs

    Commanders coaches have been surprisingly pleased with Rodriguez's receiving skills at OTAs, Zach Selby of the team's official website reports.

    Rodriguez comes in as a sixth-round pick after a college career at Kentucky in which he had more rushing touchdowns (33) than receptions (20). The 219-pounder is more of a threat to take the type of snaps/touches Brian Robinson got last year than those that went to Antonio Gibson, but at this early stage of the offseason it isn't clear if Rodriguez is a serious threat to have a role on offense at all early in the season. He's reportedly been working hard on special teams, which will be an especially important factor for making the Week 1 roster if the Commanders roll with only three running backs. Jaret Patterson and Jonathan Williams are the other RBs competing for roles behind Gibson/Robinson.

  • Commanders' Chris Rodriguez: Adding power to D.C. backfield

    The Commanders selected Rodriguez in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 193rd overall.

    A six-foot, 217-pound running back, Rodriguez profiles as a short-yardage bruiser. He filled that role well with Kentucky, as he piled up 32 total touchdowns in four seasons. Rodriguez possesses a similar profile to that of Brian Robinson, so it's not immediately apparent what role he'll occupy for the Commanders.
