The Washington Commanders will take to the skies later today in readiness for their first divisional opposition of the 2023 season.

Until then, the stories generating column inches include praise for Emmanuel Forbes, helping Sam Howell, veteran tight end Logan Thomas on a unique upcoming challenge, and what to make of rumored interest in a trade for running back Jonathan Taylor.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Logan Thomas on unique Commanders challenge

After missing last weekend's game against the Buffalo Bills in the NFL's concussion protocol, tight end Logan Thomas is all systems go at the Philadelphia Eagles. His experience will be sorely needed in one of the NFL's most hostile environments, which is always a unique challenge to overcome considering the close rivalry between the two sides.

When discussing what the Washington Commanders needed to do in pursuit of another shocking victory, Thomas highlighted the need to execute effectively via the team's website. If they can do this, the converted quarterback thinks the rest could take care of itself.

"All we've got to do is go out there and execute our plays. I think we'll be just fine. Obviously, it's a division game. It's gonna be fun. It's gonna be a hostile environment, so we're excited about it."

Nothing less than maximum effort from everyone involved will do. Thomas' presence will provide another security blanket for quarterback Sam Howell, so expect the Virginia Tech product to be heavily involved in a high-pressure setting.
