Washington Redskins: Injury Report prior to Wild Card match up against Green Bay Packers

It still might not have soaked in yet that half of the NFC East teams are looking for new head coaches and that does not include the Washington Redskins. The NFC East champions actually have more important things on their mind: Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Defensive backs coach Perry Fewell has been working with an undermanned unit all year and that will likely continue on Sunday. The banged up secondary is just one aspect of the Redskins injury report heading into the playoffs.

Washington Redskins: Jay Gruden talks injuries, importance of early leads, and Packers

The Washington Redskins found out they will be hosting the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at 4:40 pm, which will be broadcasted on FOX. That news came out several hours following the Redskins beating the Dallas Cowboys to end the regular season with a 9-7 record. In just his second year at the helm, Jay Gruden reflected on the recent success leading up to an NFC East championship and began to preview the Wild Card matchup.

On the injury front reserve defensive back Dashaun Phillips, who was taken out of the Cowboys game on a stretcher in a scary situation, “looks like he’s going to be OK.” Phillips, an ace on special teams as a gunner, is dealing with a painful cervical stinger but Gruden is not ruling out the possibility of him practicing on Wednesday. The news is actually worse for Kyshoen Jarrett who is already ruled out of the Packers game because of concern about the “nerve that affects his right arm.” Jarrett will undergo further tests while Joe Barry and Perry Fewell come up with a “plan on who’s going to play where and how” without their versatile rookie.

Washington Redskins: Week 16 Injury Report

With the biggest game of the season approaching, a Saturday night matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles for the chance to represent the NFC East in the playoffs, the Washington Redskins are hoping for positive news on the injury front as the week progresses. Washington has shown that they are capable of playing competitive football, but Scot McCloughan has not had enough time to put together a team that can withstand so many injuries. With 14 players already on the season ending injured reserve list, the Redskins can ill afford losing any more bodies following the Bills game.

With the shortened week, Washington will hold walkthroughs on Tuesday and Friday that sandwich “two good days of practice” on Wednesday and Thursday.

Washington Redskins: Week 14 Injury Report

Although not as bad as earlier in the year where you could not count the number of starters out for a game on one hand, the Washington Redskins are back to losing out on important members of their team. If they want to have any chance of winning the weakened NFC East, they will have to get the most out of their healthy players against the Bears on Sunday. To put in nicely, the Redskins are “a little banged up right now” according to Jay Gruden.

With the shortened week following a Monday night game, Washington held a walkthrough on Wednesday.

Washington Redskins Game 10 Review: Turnovers, penalties, and missed tackles doom Skins against Panthers

CONTROVERSIAL PENALTY REVERSES PICK-6, MOMENTUM AS PANTHERS BLOW OUT SKINS

Even though this might not have been a “must-win” for the Washington Redskins against the undefeated Carolina Panthers, it would have been huge for the DC franchise to keep pace in the muddled NFC East. After an early shootout similar to the Saints game last year, Washington had a pick-6 interception get called back on a controversial and questionable personal foul penalty. Not only was the 14-point swing a big deal in the final score, but the Redskins had no swagger about them on their way to a mistake-filled blowout. The Redskins fell to a record of 4-6 after a 44-16 thrashing to the 10-0 Carolina Panthers.

One of the main keys for the Redskins on defense was to stop the running game and put pressure on Cam Newton in the passing game. In the first three plays they did exactly that by dropping Jonathan Stewart for no gain before forcing back-to-back incompletions from Newton thanks to pressure from Trent Murphy and Ryan Kerrigan. Unfortunately for Washington, on a third down for Kirk Cousins felt the pressure and delivered way to high for an open DeSean Jackson for an interception.
