A.J. Green said he is not worried about a contract extension, because the team picked up his 2015 option.
No matter when Green signs an extension, he is going to get paid--big time. He is one of the top three receivers in the NFL and will be paid accordingly when the time is right. You can expect another colossal season from Green in 2014.ANALYST: David Kerr
Jayson Werth is not in the Nationals lineup Wednesday.
Werth was out of the lineup Tuesday and the thought process was that he was getting a routine day off after opening the season batting just .176 through his first 19 games. That may still be the case here as manager Matt Williams is giving him consecutive days to clear his head, but one can't help wonder if the shoulder is barking just a bit. If it is just a regular day, then perhaps he will see a pinch-hitting opportunity which would be a good sign. If not, look for the team to offer a bit more of an update regarding his physical condition. Analysis: Howard Bender
