Washington Redskins: Week 3 Injury Report

With the Washington Redskins on a short work week by playing the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football this week all injuries no matter how relatively minor could play huge in who is and is not available for Washington. To better understand the matchup against the division rival Giants, we list all of the Redskins injuries below:

  • DeSean Jackson will likely be out again this week as he is trying to recover from a left hamstring strain suffered in Week 1 against the Dolphins. Jackson was officially ruled out on Wednesday. It might be a long shot, but he could return next Sunday in a Week 4 matchup against is former team, the Philadelphia Eagles.
  • The Redskins lone injury sustained during Week 2’s win against the Rams occurred to MLB Perry Riley Jr. who is dealing with a calf strain. Riley was unable to finish yesterday’s game and was replaced for the majority by Will Compton. According to head coach Jay Gruden, Riley’s status is “up in the air”, but officially questionable, after not participating in Monday’s walkthrough or practice on Tuesday or Wednesday.
  • Staying with the inside linebacker position, fifth round rookie Martrell Spaight was placed on the injured reserve list on Tuesday due to a lingering concussion that kept sidelined for over a week. Including the injury to Riley, the Redskins cannot demote Terrance Plummer back to the practice squad as he currently is serving as the backup to both Keenan Robinson and Will Compton.
  • Justin Rodgers looks to have solidified his spot on the 53 man roster, but is dealing with planter fasciitis that held him out of Monday’s walkthrough and Tuesday’s practice since missing the Rams game. Rodgers was officially ruled OUT against the Giants after not participating all week, but luckily the Redskins will have their full allotment of top corners at their disposal for the first time this year.
  • Tom Compton continues to be limited with a calf injury he reaggravated last week during practice. Fellow tackle Morgan Moses was also limited during Monday’s walkthrough with knee soreness however would fully partake in Tuesday’s and Wednesday;s practice quieting any scares of a possible disruption to a so far solid offensive line. While Compton is listed as questionable for the game after being limited all week, Moses is listed as probably and almost certainly ready to suit up.
  • DeAngelo Hall (ribs), Terrance Knighton (ribs), Shaun Lauvao (calf), and Kory Lichtensteiger (finger) were all full participants in the Monday walkthrough as well as Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s practice. All are probably to start Thursday night.

As for a little bit of enemy intel, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz and CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie have already been ruled OUT, while first round offensive tackle Ereck Flowers is officially listed as doubtful. DE Robert Ayers is listed as questionable after being limited on Tuesday and Wednesday, but the Giants are looking forward to get MLB Jon Beason back in the fold as a big lift to their defense. Beason is probably to play against the Redskins with his knee injury although stamina might be issue as it might have been for Ryan Kerrigan in Week 1.

This post will be updated with the most accurate status of all injured players leading up to Thursday night’s game against the Giants.
