    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/29/16RBShaun DraughnLegPROBABLEDraughn (ribs/back) wore a blue jersey at Sunday's practice to signal that he's exempt from being hit, The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Draughn hasn't played in either of the 49ers' past two preseason games due to a ribs injury he suffered during a practice scrimmage with the Broncos. While that condition requires the protection associated with a blue practice jersey, starting running back Carlos Hyde's concussion suffered Friday against Green Bay makes protecting Draughn's health even more important. At the moment, he projects as the Niners' No. 2 running back, so if Hyde is unavailable, he represents the team's next option at the position, where the alternatives don't appear too attractive. It's also worth noting that Draughn was involved with returning punts during Sunday's session.

    08/29/16WRDeAndre SmelterHamstringPROBABLESmelter (hamstring) was seen in full pads at Monday's practice, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

    Smelter -- who has missed all three preseason games with a hamstring injury -- returned to practice and could make an appearance in the 49ers' final preseason game against the Chargers on Thursday. The 2015 fourth-round pick was recovering from a torn ACL and had a great opportunity to carve out a significant role during training camp, but a hamstring injury derailed that opportunity. It isn't inconceivable for Smelter to have a strong showing in Thursday's preseason finale and rocket up the depth chart given how depleted the 49ers' receiving corps is. A more likely scenario would be Smelter making the team as a backup and earning playing time later in the season as he gets his feet wet with his first NFL action.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/27/16LBNaVorro BowmanRestPROBABLEBowman is in street clothes on the sideline for Friday's matchup with the Packers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN reports.

    Bowman was not on the inactive list for this contest, but it does not appear as though he will participate. There has been no injury reported, so the team is likely resting their veteran linebacker in order to ensure his health heading into Week 1.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/27/16DLQuinton DialKneeQUESTIONABLEDial injured his knee during Friday's preseason loss to the Packers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    The 49ers are awaiting word on an MRI of Dial's knee, after which a timetable for a return can be charted. In 15 games last season, the defensive tackle notched 59 tackles (32 solo) and 2.5 sacks.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/27/16WRBruce EllingtonHamstringQUESTIONABLEEllington (ankle) won't play in Saturday's preseason game at Denver, the 49ers' official site reports.

    With an ankle sprain in tow, Ellington will be an observer rather than participant in San Francisco's second exhibition outing. His absence should give the likes of Jerome Simpson and DeAndrew White additional targets to work with Saturday.

    (Updated 08/20/2016)
    08/27/16RBCarlos HydeConcussionQUESTIONABLEHyde suffered a concussion in the first half of Saturday's preseason loss to Green Bay, ESPN reports.

    Hyde had four carries for 30 yards, including a 27-yard run, before departing. Hyde looks fully healthy after left foot surgery that he underwent prior to the end of the 2015 season. However, the concussion could put his status for the start of the regular season in question.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/26/16DLTony Jerod-EddieChestPROBABLEJerod-Eddie exited Saturday's preseason game with an apparent chest injury, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Jerod-Eddie went down in the first quarter and did not return to the game. With both Arik Armstead (shoulder) and DeForest Buckner (leg) sitting out, he was getting reps with the 49ers' top defensive unit. Jerod-Eddie is currently competing for a backup defensive end job.

    (Updated 08/21/2016)
    08/23/16WRBryce TreggsKneeQUESTIONABLETreggs (knee) is inactive for Friday's matchup with the Packers.

    Treggs is currently considered week-to-week due to a sprained MCL, thus rendering this inactive unsurprising. He is currently competing to make the team's final roster.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/21/16LBNick BelloreKneeQUESTIONABLEBellore (knee) was diagnosed with a knee sprain Monday, Matt Maiocco of csnbayarea.com reports.

    On the bright side, Bellore's injury does not appear serious enough to require surgery. On the other hand, the 49ers have no timetable for his return as of right now. Bellore currently presides as one of San Francisco's top reserve linebackers.

    (Updated 08/22/2016)
    08/21/16DLDeForest BucknerUndisclosedPROBABLEBuckner was held out of the 49ers second preseason game, Saturday against the Broncos, due to a soft tissue issue on his lower body, Nick Wagoner of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

    Buckner's absence was announced late on Saturday, and came as a surprise as he hadn't missed practice with the issue. The team didn't go beyond saying that the injury was tissue in his lower body, making it hard to gauge the severity of the injury and set a timetable for the rookie defensive end. It's unclear at this time if he'll be able to practice right away or if he'll be out for a longer stretch. Look for Demetrius Cherry to see some extra reps as long as Buckner is out.

    (Updated 08/21/2016)
    08/11/16DLArik ArmsteadShoulderPROBABLEArmstead (shoulder) returned to practice this week after missing the team's first two preseason games, Matt Maiocco reports.

    After a somewhat disappointing rookie campaign one year ago, the 49ers remain confident that Armstead is headed in the right direction. The 21-year-old has shown signs of growth in both the maturity and production departments, and projects to help anchor San Francisco's defensive line in 2016. His return to the practice field Wednesday suggests that he will be ready to lead the charge in Week 1.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    07/30/16DLIan WilliamsNot Injury RelatedOUTWilliams was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    This move was made to make room on the roster for offensive lineman Anthony Davis who was reinstated by the league from retirement Saturday. It remains to be seen when Williams will play again.

    (Updated 07/30/2016)
    07/29/16LBAaron LynchSuspensionSUSPENDLynch has been suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

    Lynch slid to the fifth round of the 2014 Draft amid character concerns, but developed into of the league's best young outside linebackers by totaling 12.5 sacks over his first two seasons. Nonetheless, Lynch has now incurred his first NFL off-field slip-up, and will miss the first quarter of the regular season as a consequence. With Lynch suspended until San Francisco's Week 5 game against the Cardinals, Eli Harold and Corey Lemonier are candidates to start opposite Ahmad Brooks in the meantime.

    (Updated 07/15/2016)
    05/16/16DBWill RedmondKneeQUESTIONABLEThe 49ers selected Redmond (knee) in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 68th overall.

    Redmond likely would have been a second-round pick and could have even pushed for the first round if he hadn't torn his ACL during the 2015 season. This therefore looks like a potential bargain for a 49ers team that lacks proven options at corner.

    (Updated 04/29/2016)
    02/17/16DLGlenn DorseyKneeQUESTIONABLEDorsey (knee) passed his conditioning test Saturday, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Dorsey tore his ACL last season and has been making good progress in his recovery this offseason. He will be slowly worked back into the mix during training camp. Dorsey will have competition for a role at defensive end with DeForest Buckner and Arik Armstead on the depth chart, but he could find playing time at the nose tackle position with Ian Williams already ruled out for the season.

    Washington Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/29/16RBKeith MarshallElbowDOUBTFULHead coach Jay Gruden said Marshall (elbow sprain) may be a candidate for injured reserve, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

    Marshall is only expected to be out three weeks, but he'd already fallen behind UDFA Rob Kelley in the competition for the No. 3 running back job, which now takes on added importance with Matt Jones (shoulder) uncertain for Week 1. A seventh-round rookie with tremendous athletic measurables but a limited college track record, Marshall would seemingly make for an ideal IR stash. Mack Brown could get a lot of work in the final preseason game, and Washington may consider adding a veteran running back before Week 1.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/27/16LBRyan KerriganGroinPROBABLEKerrigan (groin) did not practice on Monday, Brian McNally of 106.7 The Fan reports.

    Kerrigan went through warmup stretches with the team but was not in pads as he spent the remainder of practice on the sideline. The linebacker was schedule to undergo an MRI on Saturday, although the team has yet to comment on his status. He could return to the practice field later this week, but won't play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Buccaneers.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/26/16DLChris BakerRestPROBABLEBaker will not play in Friday's preseason tilt with the Bills in order to rest, Anthony Gulizia of the Washington Times reports.

    The decision to keep the veteran out of the lineup shouldn't bring too much concern as it is not related to any serious injury. Look for Stephen Paea and Ziggy Hood to see increased action with Baker on the sidelines Friday night.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/25/16RBChris ThompsonShoulderPROBABLECoach Jay Gruden relayed that Thompson (shoulder/knee) will likely sit out Friday's preseason game against the Bills, the Washington Post reports.

    Per CSN Mid-Atlantic, Thompson is nursing a sore knee and shoulder and Gruden would prefer for the running back to not "get banged around" in Friday's exhibition tilt. With top back Matt Jones set to miss the game, rookies Keith Marshall and Robert Kelley are in line to see more snaps, as the team continues to evaluate its depth RB options in advance of roster cut-downs. In his role as Washington's presumed primary third-down back, Thompson maintains a degree of fantasy utility, notably in PRR formats.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    08/24/16LBSteven DanielsShoulderOUTDaniels will miss the 2016 season after suffering a torn labrum during the first week of training camp, Brian McNally of CBS DC reports.

    Daniels, a 2016 seventh-round pick out of Boston College, will undergo surgery Monday to repair the injured shoulder. A long road to recovery awaits the 23-year-old, but he'll hope to make a comeback and secure a roster spot in 2017.

    (Updated 08/06/2016)
    08/23/16WRJamison CrowderKneePROBABLECrowder (knee) returned to practice Monday, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

    Crowder dealt with knee soreness last week and was held out of Friday's preseason game against the Bills. He should be fine to serve as Washington's slot receiver Week 1 against the Steelers, reprising his role from last season.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/23/16WRReggie DiggsKneePROBABLE (Updated 12/31/1969)
    08/20/16RBMatt JonesShoulderQUESTIONABLEJones (shoulder) was off to the side at Monday's practice, Brian McNally of 106.7 The Fan reports.

    Already ruled out for the final two preseason games, Jones has been limited to side work at practice since he injured his shoulder Aug. 19. He was diagnosed with a second-degree sprain of the AC joint, leaving his Week 1 status in some question. Washington also has issues further down the depth chart, with seventh-round rookie Keith Marshall (elbow) out for up to three weeks. Undrafted rookie Rob Kelley and passing-down specialist Chris Thompson (shoulder/knee) may have to lead the backfield in Week 1, though it's also possible Washington could add a veteran free agent in the coming days. Jones said he's making good progress and expects to be ready for the start of the season.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/20/16TEJordan ReedThumbPROBABLEReed (thumb) caught two passes for 28 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Friday's preseason game against the Bills.

    Reed may have shown some rust with an early drop, but he made up for it by breaking wide open for a 20-yard touchdown in the second quarter. His lengthy injury history is more of a concern than the current issue, as Reed's sprained thumb should be back to full health by Week 1, if it isn't already.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/13/16TENiles PaulKneePROBABLEPaul (knee) should practice in the near future, the Redskins' official site reports.

    Paul suffered a dislocated ankle precisely one year ago during preseason action, and his rehabilitation extended into the offseason. After opening training camp with the Redskins, he suffered a hyperextended right knee in Thursday's preseason defeat in Atlanta, but a lengthy absence doesn't appear to be a side effect of the current concern.

    (Updated 08/13/2016)
    08/09/16DLPreston SmithShoulderPROBABLESmith exited Tuesday's practice with a shoulder sprain.

    The injury isn't supposed to be severe, and Smith is still likely to play in Thursday's preseason opener, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Wednesday's practice session will shed more light on Smith's upcoming availability.

    (Updated 08/09/2016)
    08/04/16DLJerrell PoweIllnessQUESTIONABLEPowe (heart arrhythmia) is likely going to miss another few weeks, Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post reports.

    Powe was diagnosed with a heart arrhythmia at the start of August and was originally given a 7-to-10 day timeline for a return. However, it appears they're going to play it safe with the issue and continue to hold him out for another couple of weeks. Powe could be a contributor at nose tackle due to the Redskins' lack of depth, but he'll need to get his health issues in check prior to getting back on the field.

    (Updated 08/17/2016)
    08/02/16LBSu'a CravensHamstringPROBABLECravens (hamstring) impressed head coach Jay Gruden in Thursday's loss to the Falcons, finishing with three tackles on 24 snaps.

    The second-round, linebacker/safety hybrid out of USC demonstrated his versatile abilities as he played in active role in covering wideouts as well as stopping the run. Gruden's praise also came with a focus area of improvement, saying, "Looked like he was all over the place. I'm sure we will watch the tape and see he was placed where he didn't need to be. We will get that figured out. Loved his energy...you can see it and it was a lot of fun to watch Su'a." The rookie has been nursing a strained hamstring, which is the reasoning behind his limited reps in the game. As the preseason continues, Cravens goal is to get in better shape for an inside linebacker position, which he is listed as on the team roster.

    (Updated 08/13/2016)
    08/02/16LBTrent MurphyIllnessPROBABLEMurphy (strep throat) returned to practice Wednesday after sitting out of Tuesday's practice due to illness, Brian McNally of CBS reports.

    Washington has dealt with the injury bug as of late, but it appears they'll be just fine in Murphy's case. Entering his third season, Murphy is looking to improve on a strong 2015-16 campaign that featured 3.5 sacks in 16 games. The Redskins have high hopes for the Stanford product and expect him to help anchor Washington's front seven alongside elite pass rusher Ryan Kerrigan.

    (Updated 08/04/2016)
    07/29/16RBSilas ReddSuspensionSUSPENDThe NFL has suspended Redd indefinitely for a violation of the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Bans of this variety are due to continued positive tests, which is evident as Redd has yet to serve a four-gamer for a similar violation due to his recovery from a torn ACL and MCL. Once healthy enough to return to the field, he'll have to bide his time and do his due diligence considering NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will be in charge of any reinstatement effort.

    (Updated 04/12/2016)
    07/29/16LBPerry RileyFootPROBABLERiley (foot) has been activated from the Redskins' PUP list ahead of Friday's practice.

    Riley missed the final six games of last season due to a foot injury that required surgery, causing him to start training camp on the sidelines. However, now that he's healed enough, the veteran linebacker will take the practice field Friday. Entering the last year of his current contract, Riley will compete for reps at inside linebacker with Will Compton and Mason Foster.

    (Updated 07/29/2016)
    07/25/16LBJunior GaletteAchillesOUTGalette will have surgery to repair his torn right Achilles tendon, ruling him out for this season.

    Galette's injury was revealed last week, but there remained a small hope that he may be able to avoid surgery and eventually play this year. However, upon since announcing his decision to undergo surgery, Galette can now be ruled out for the entire 2016 campaign, marking his second straight season lost due to an Achilles injury. With Galette sidelined once again, the Redskins will hope Preston Smith can build on his eight-sack rookie season and work with Trent Murphy at Washington's outside linebacker position opposite Ryan Kerrigan.

    (Updated 08/01/2016)
    05/28/16DBKendall FullerKneeQUESTIONABLEFuller (knee) will be under consideration for the Redskins' nickelback role after returning from microfracture surgery, The Washington Post reports.

    Fuller dropped into the third round of this year's draft because of the knee injury he suffered last year in college, but had been given first-round grades by several teams had he owned a clean bill of health. Fortunately, he participated in minicamp last month without setbacks, and declared himself healthy afterword. Fuller is fully capable of playing on the outside, but with Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland locking down the top corner jobs, Fuller will be tasked to handle nickleback duties his rookie year. However, he will still have to earn the job in training camp.

    (Updated 07/13/2016)
    04/08/16TELogan PaulsenToePROBABLEPaulsen is signing a one-year contract to remain with the Redskins, ESPN's Adam Caplin reports.

    Paulsen has spent his entire six-year career with the Redskins, but missed all of last season after having toe surgery in August. A backup tight end, Paulsen will hope for a healthy 2016 campaign, but his fantasy stock is minuscule at best.

    (Updated 03/11/2016)
    03/15/16DBDavid BrutonLegPROBABLEWashington and Bruton agreed to a contract Monday, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports.

    The veteran safety primarily served on special teams during his seven-year stint with the Broncos, but eight starts litter his 104 career games. Last season, he received three nods in 13 appearances before suffering a season-ending broken right fibula in Week 15, finishing with 49 tackles (37 solo), two interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one sack. Although he missed Denver's run to Super Bowl glory, he'll have the opportunity to lock down the first regular starting gig as a professional with Washington.
