Washington Redskins: Week 13 Injury Report

The Washington Redskins started the month of December in the driver seat of the NFC East, but with five games left in the season Trent Williams knows maintaining dominance is the key. When the Redskins host archrival Dallas on Monday, they will hope to be fairly healthy in a physical matchup in the trenches.

  • Chris Baker (illness): DNP on Thursday with a illness (PROBABLE) that seems to be getting past along as both Bashaud Breeland and Jeron Johnson have missed practice time as a result. Swaggy returned to practice in FULL on Friday and Saturday.
  • Derek Carrier (ankle/Achilles): DNP on Thursday or Friday, but limited on Saturday (QUESTIONABLE) due to the injury he suffered early in the game against the Giants. Although considered day-to-day, Washington will have to make sure third string tight end Je’Ron Hamm is ready to go after being brought back to the active roster last week in place of Anthony McCoy.
  • DaShon Goldson (knee/hamstring/wrist): DNP in the first practice of the week on Thursday and got limited work on Friday and Saturday (PROBABLE). As long as there is no reaggravation of wear and tear injuries, Goldson will likely continue to be a veteran leader on the field.
  • Jason Hatcher (knee/rest): DNP on Thursday, limited on Friday, and full on Saturday (PROBABLE) as has now been a trend for the veteran defensive linemen.
  • Andre Roberts (knee): DNP during Thursday’s, nor Friday’s practice (QUESTIONABLE) as the wide receiver has seen little playing time on offense throughout the season.
  • Will Blackmon (shoulder/hip): limited in practice on Thursday and FULL on Friday and Saturday (PROBABLE). Jay Gruden complimented Blackmon as one of the best pickups they absolutely needed to have this year with various injuries in the secondary.
  • DeShazor Everett (hamstring): limited in practice throughout the week (QUESTIONABLE) after having to sit out the Giants game with a tweaked hamstring sustained as a gunner against the Panthers. Dashaun Phillips stepped up to fill Everett’s role on special teams fairly well.
  • Chris Thompson (shoulder): limited throughout the week (QUESTIONABLE) while dealing with another wear and tear blow.
  • Quinton Dunbar (finger): limited in practice throughout the week (QUESTIONABLE) after dislocating his finger on a pass deflection in the Giants game. Looks to be playing with a splint and hopes to be ready to go against the Cowboys.
  • Perry Riley Jr. (foot): OUT three to six weeks after breaking his fifth metatarsal on Thursday as a result of the “turf monster”.
  • Trenton Robinson (hamstring): WAIVED with injury designation on Friday after re-tweaking his hamstring, which would explain his DNP on Friday. Even if healthy, the Redskins look to have both Jeron Johnson and DeAngelo Hall playing strong safety in front of him.
  • Keenan Robinson (shoulder): limited in practice during the week (QUESTIONABLE) after missing three straight games with a shoulder injury that he has not gained enough strength back in. Robinson had a platelet-rich plasma treatment last week that is believed to speed up the recovery. With Riley already out for the near future, Washington could really use a return in their middle linebacker although Mason Foster is expected to start opposite Will Compton.
  • DeSean Jackson (illness): DNP on Saturday with an upper respiratory illness, but his (PROBABLE) to play against the Cowboys.
  • DeAngelo Hall (toe), Terrance Knighton (migraine), and Josh LeRibeus (ankle/shoulder) were full in practice during the week (PROBABLE).

This article will be updated up until kickoff Monday night with the latest on Redskins injuries.
