    04/27/16DBJalen CollinsSuspensionSUSPENDCollins has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

    Collins is still eligible to partake in all offseason and preseason activities, but will have to miss the first quarter of the regular season. A second round selection last year, Collins was hoping to carve out a larger role in the Falcons' secondary this term, and although he very well may still, his absence will open opportunities for his teammates to begin the campaign.

    Washington Injuries

    07/26/16LBJunior GaletteAchillesOUTGalette has suffered a torn Achilles and is expected to miss the upcoming season, NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports.

    Galette tore his Achilles toward the end of training camp last year and it unfortunately appears he's suffered the same injury ahead of camp this year. While it's a crushing blow to the 28-year-old regardless, Galette injured his other Achilles this time around, The Washington Post reports. If there's a silver lining, it's that the Redskins are deep at outside linebacker, with Ryan Kerrigan, Preston Smith, Trent Murphy and rookie Su'a Cravens in tow, but having Galette available would have still been a welcomed boost going into this year.

    07/11/16TEDerek CarrierKneePROBABLECarrier (knee) probably won't be ready for the start of training camp, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

    Traded from San Francisco to Washington in exchange for a fifth-round pick before the 2015 season, Carrier caught 17 passes for 141 yards and a touchdown on 22 targets, working as either the No. 2 or 3 tight end. He then tore his ACL and MCL in mid-December, putting his 2016 availability into serious question. Even if he makes it back at some point in camp, Carrier will have to fight for a roster spot, as Washington also has Vernon Davis, Niles Paul (knee) and Logan Paulsen (toe) on the depth chart behind Jordan Reed.

    07/11/16WRJosh DoctsonFootPROBABLEDoctson (Achilles) is expected to be healthy for the start of training camp in late July, The Washington Post reports.

    The 22nd overall pick in the 2016 draft, Doctson missed most of the offseason program due to soreness in his left Achilles. With no indication that the injury is a long-term concern, he should still have all of training camp to earn a role in a crowded wideout group that also includes DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder. Though not expected to open the season as a starter, Doctson should push for an immediate role on obvious passing downs and/or in the red zone.

    04/27/16DBDavid 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.

    04/27/16RBSilas 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.
