    07/11/16TERhett EllisonKneeQUESTIONABLEEllison (knee) anticipates a full recovery by training camp, the Twin Cities-Pioneer Press reports.

    Ellison suffered a torn patellar tendon in last year's season finale against the Packers, but hasn't reported any setbacks in his recovery and anticipates being 100 percent for training camp. He enters camp firmly behind Kyle Rudolph and MyCole Pruitt on the depth chart.

    07/11/16DLLinval JosephToePROBABLEJoseph (foot) will have toe surgery during the offseason, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports

    This shouldn't come as any surprise, given that Joseph dealt with a foot injury throughout the entire second half of the season. He missed Weeks 12-16, but with 56 tackles in just 12 games, Joseph cemented his reputation as one of the league's better run-stopping interior linemen. He only has 12.5 sacks in 81 career games.

    04/27/16DBAntone ExumRibsPROBABLEExum could be in the mix to win a starting safety job next to Harrison Smith after returning from rib and shoulder injuries during spring practice, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    He mostly worked with the second- and third-string defense, but he could work his way into the mix for playing time at strong safety with an impressive showing at training camp. Exum missed time last year with a knee injury and spent the final few weeks on injured reserve with a fractured rib and an AC joint injury. He'll compete with Andrew Sendejo, Michael Griffin, Anthony Harris and 2016 seventh-round draft pick Jayron Kearse.

    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.

    (Updated 06/16/2016)
    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.
