Freeman won't take part in practice Wednesday, as he remains in the first phase of the concussion protocol.
Head coach Dan Quinn relayed Monday that Freeman had already received clearance to attend meetings, but Wednesday's development indicates otherwise. As the week progresses, the Falcons will tread carefully with their star running back due to the murky nature of concussions. While Freeman's availability could come down to a game-time call, the team kicks off at 1 PM ET on Sunday, affording his owners a chance to make necessary adjustments. If he's unable to play, Tevin Coleman will head Atlanta's backfield.
In Week 10, Morris suffered a rib injury but played through the pain, totaling 15 rushes for 92 yards and three receptions for 14 yards. He attempted to do the same Sunday at Carolina, but his early aggravation resulted in no production whatsoever. Head coach Jay Gruden confirmed the nature of the ailment Wednesday, calling it a bruised rib, with no fractures or cartilage damage, according to Brian McNally of 106.7 the Fan DC. As a result, Morris' availability for Sunday's game versus the Giants isn't really in question, but his workload could be curtailed if he's unable to handle the discomfort.
Reed wasn't listed on Washington's injury report Wednesday.
In the aftermath of Sunday's loss at Carolina, it was revealed that Reed suffered a sprained MCL in one of his knees, making his lack of presence on the injury report a surprise, to say the least. In any case, he's Washington's undisputed No. 1 tight end, from which he's put together 23 catches (on 32 targets) for 165 yards and a whopping five touchdowns over the last four games.
Robinson (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday.
Robinson missed the previous two games due to a problematic shoulder injury, but his availability at practice Wednesday is certainly a positive sign moving forward. The Redskins will likely make an official announcement regarding their middle linebacker's status closer to the end of the week, so IDP owners should stay tuned for more information.
Robinson (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers, CSN's Tarik El-Bashir reports.
Robinson suffered the injury during Wednesday's practice, leaving Jeron Johnson as the likely starter at strong safety. Robinson has 52 tackles and an interception in nine games, but it isn't clear that Johnson would be a downgrade from the Redskins' perspective.
