    Redskins' Will Compton: Active in Week 17

    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.

    Redskins' Will Compton: Listed as probable

    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.

    Redskins' Will Compton: Practices in full Thursday

    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.

    Redskins' Will Compton: Suffers sprained shoulder

    Compton will have an MRI to evaluate a sprained shoulder. Compton has secured a three-down role when healthy, but it appears Washington's game of musical chairs at inside linebacker could continue. Keenan Robinson (shoulder), who was only active as an emergency option for Monday's game against the Cowboys, would likely be ready to replace Compton, if need be, for Sunday's clash with Chicago. Mason Foster started alongside Compton in Monday's game, after Perry Riley (foot) underwent surgery that could end his season.

    Redskins' Will Compton: Named starting inside linebacker

    Head coach Jay Gruden has named Compton as one of Washington's starters at inside linebacker, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports. Keenan Robinson has tended to a neck stinger the last three games, logging DNPs in each one. The extended absence has allowed Compton an opportunity to start at ILB, and he's prospered in the role, racking up 25 tackles (12 solo) over the last four games. Although his stat lines are tackle-dependent -- he has just one fumble recovery and no other counting stats this season -- he should continue to garner interest in IDP leagues.

    Redskins starting Will Compton at ILB against Giants

    Will Compton will start at inside linebacker for the Redskins on Thursday night in place of Perry Riley (calf), reports John Keim of ESPN.com. Last year, Compton notched 60 tackles (39 solo), while logging 35 percent of the defensive snaps and 58 percent of the special teams snaps. Presented with an opportunity to start, he'll look to translate that productivity to the current season.
