Ihenacho was able to return to Sunday's game against the Bengals after injuring his ankle, but later suffered a concussion. Ihenacho took a scary blow to the head when attempting to make a tackle late in Sunday's game, and will now enter the league's concussion protocol. Expect Donte Whitner to see increased snaps at strong safety as long as Ihenacho is sidelined.
Ihenacho suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's tilt with the Bengals and is questionable to return. Look for more updates on the specifics of the injury to emerge after the game. Expect veteran Donte Whinter to see the bulk of the action at strong safety if Ihenacho cannot return.
Ihenacho re-signed with Washington on Wednesday, Rick Snider of The Washington Post reports. Ihenacho will remain with Washington after spending the past two seasons with the team. He now has a chance to claim a starting role after the release of Dashon Goldson and Jeron Johnson earlier in the week. Last season he played in just one game, recording three tackles.
A wrist injury that will require surgery has landed Redskins strong safety Duke Ihenacho on season-ending injured reserve and motivated the team to sign cornerback Will Blackmon, per CSN Mid-Atlantic. The fracture and dislocation was sustained by Ihenacho in the Week 1 loss to Miami. Blackmon was cut by Seattle on Sept. 5, but has eight years of NFL experience. He played eight games for Jacksonville in 2014.
