Compton (lower leg) is active Sunday against the Cowboys. After putting in three full practices this week, Compton will be in the lineup at left inside linebacker. With Washington having nothing to play for this week, it's possible that he'll only see limited time on the field. On the season, he's posted 87 tackles to go along with a sack and a fumble recovery.
Compton (knee) is active Sunday against the Bills. Compton put in three full practices this week and will be in the lineup at left inside linebacker. On the season, he's recorded 73 tackles and recovered a fumble.
Compton (shoulder) is active for Sunday's contest at Chicago, Liz Clarke of the Washington Post reports. Compton will retain his starting role at inside linebacker, from which he's racked up 43 tackles (16 solo) over the last five games.
Compton (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bears. With eight tackles in each of his last five games, Compton has clearly emerged as the top IDP on Washington's roster. There was once some question about his hold on the starting job, but defensive coordinator Joe Barry put those concerns to rest this week.
Compton (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports. Compton has worked his way into the starting lineup at inside linebacker, and even fended off Keenan Robinson (shoulder) in the latter's return from a three-game absence Monday against the Cowboys. In fact, Robinson didn't play a snap, while Compton took on all 56 that the defense faced in Week 13. Afterward, an MRI was ordered up on Compton's shoulder, and he only logged individual drills Wednesday, but his uninhibited return Thursday was accompanied by a pledge from defensive coordinator Joe Barry to stick with Compton and Mason Foster as the starters at ILB, according to Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington. With at least eight tackles in five consecutive contests, Compton has emerged as a viable IDP in the second half of the season.
