Washington Redskins: Week 4 Injury Report

With the loss of guard Shawn Lauvao and corner Justin Rodgers earlier this week, the Washington Redskins will be tested again when they face off against the Philadelphia Eagles. Injuries have been such a big factor to the Redskins thus far that Gruden made the fairly accurate remark that the players they have on injured reserve and inactive lists fields a “pretty good team”.

  • DeSean Jackson (hamstring): currently day to day after not practicing all week and ruled OUT against the Eagles on Friday. The deep threat would surely love to be a thorn in the side of his former team as he was last year, but will need to practice at least once in full to have a chance of suiting up. The possibility of a wet turf on Sunday increases Jackson’s chance of reaggravating his hamstring should he give it a go, but he has not been officially ruled out quite yet as of Thursday.
  • Perry Riley (calf): did not practice all week and was officially ruled OUT for Sunday’s game Friday. With the signing of ILB Mason Foster, the Redskins obviously had their doubts about Riley to suiting up against the Eagles. Although Keenan Robinson does a great job quarterbacking the defense, the Redskins will be tested without one of their veteran leaders when combatting Philadelphia’s up tempo pace.
  • DeAngelo Hall (toe): did not participate in practice all week, as expected. The ball park for his return is probably in a Week 7 matchup against Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Although Gruden confirmed Hall will not need surgery for the non-contact injury, he will be sidelined for a sizeable amount of time (three weeks). The veteran corner was officially ruled out Thursday.
  • Chris Culliver (knee soreness): limited in practice on Wednesday but did not participate on Thursday or Friday while receiving treatment for an injury causing a noticeable limp. Gruden is still optimistic that the soreness clears up in time and does not plan on bringing in another cornerback with the team stretched thin. Culliver is officially listed as questionable.
  • Kedric Golston (hand): limited in Wednesday’s and Thursday’s practice but full on Friday because of an injury suffered last game against the Giants. The team has kept him active in all three regular season games thus far, likely for his special teams play, even though sixth defensive lineman Frank Kearse is still waiting for playing time. Golston is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.
  • Colt McCoy (foot): after fireworks exploded for his non-participation on Monday, the veteran quarterback returned to practice in full on Wednesday and Thursday. The Texas product was forced to sit out on Monday because of a cut on his foot suffered on accident while removing tape from around his ankle.
  • Josh LeRibeus (calf): after being limited on Wednesday with the injury sustained during the Giants game, the former third round pick returned to practice in full on Thursday and Friday. The team has described LeRibeus’ game status as questionable and would be without a true backup center if he is unable to go.
  • Kory Lichtensteiger (finger): full participant during the entire week of practice.
  • Morgan Moses (knee/elbow): full participant during the entire week of practice.

This post will be updated with the most accurate status of all injured players leading up to Sunday afternoon’s game with the Eagles.
