  • Washington Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/30/16WRReggie DiggsKneeQUESTIONABLEDiggs (knee) was released by Washington on Tuesday.

    Diggs failed to play in any preseason games as he nursed a lingering knee injury. With more depth at receiver than in past years, Washington decided to part ways with the undrafted rookie as they trim their roster down to 75.

    (Updated 08/30/2016)
    08/30/16LBRyan KerriganGroinQUESTIONABLEKerrigan (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)
    08/20/16RBMatt 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)
    07/25/16LBJunior 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.

    Pittsburgh Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/27/16DLCameron HeywardAnkleQUESTIONABLEHeyward (ankle) said he expects to be ready for Week 1, despite suffering a high ankle sprain in Friday's preseason game against the Saints, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    While not completely unheard of, two weeks would represent a very quick recovery from a high ankle sprain. In all likelihood, Heyward will be no better than questionable for Week 1, perhaps even needing to miss the first few games of the season. It would be a big loss for Pittsburgh's defense, though the unit does boast improved depth in the front seven this year.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/27/16DBShamarko ThomasGroinQUESTIONABLEThomas suffered a right groin injury in Friday's matchup with the Saints, and will not return to the game.

    It is unclear the severity of Thomas' injury at the moment. The 25-year-old currently projects as the second strong safety on the Steelers' depth chart. Expect an update on his status when more information is made available.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/24/16DBCortez AllenKneePROBABLEAllen has been released by the Steelers.

    Allen missed all of last season after suffering a knee injury in Week 1, but his release also comes after he signed a lucrative four-year extension with Pittsburgh in 2014. Now a free agent, Allen's absence further ensures the Steelers will address the cornerback position through the draft.

    (Updated 04/15/2016)
    08/23/16LBBud DupreeGroinPROBABLEDupree (groin) admitted he suffered setbacks that have delayed his return, accoring to ESPN.com writer Jeremy Fowler. "I keep trying to go out there too quickly," Dupree said. "I can't be a speed dude and look slow. I can't be a non-explosive guy when everybody knows I'm explosive. That's got to be (a departure) from why the Steelers picked me."

    Dupree, who missed most of training camp as a result of this injury, was in competition with James Harrison and Arthur Moats to start at ouside linebacker after the 2015 first round draft pick impressed with 26 tackles, including four sacks, in his rookie season. With two games remaining in the preseason, he still has an opportunity to win the job outright, but may find himself in a timeshare if his injury lingers.

    (Updated 08/23/2016)
    08/20/16QBDustin VaughanThumbQUESTIONABLEVaughan (thumb) was placed on the Steelers' injured reserve list on Tuesday.

    Vaughan suffered a broken thumb in the Steelers' second preseason tilt and was subsequently waived on Sunday. As it stands, only Landry Jones and Bryn Renner remain standing as candidates to backup QB Ben Roethlisberger entering 2016.

    (Updated 08/30/2016)
    08/19/16RBLe'Veon BellSuspensionSUSPENDBell is among the Steelers' key players not slated to play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Panthers.

    The same applies to DeAngelo Williams, who is set to fill in for Bell while he serves a three-game suspension to start the season. On Thursday, the team's depth backs will have an opportunity to make their cases for complementary roles heading into the regular season. Bell's next game action is slated to arrive on Oct. 2, when the Steelers face the Chargers at home in Week 4.

    (Updated 08/30/2016)
    08/16/16DBArtie BurnsQuadricepsPROBABLEBurns (quadriceps) is not expected to play Friday against the Saints, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports.

    Although Burns is out stretching and working out on the field during pregame, the expectation is that the Steelers' first rounder will be held out Friday. In his absence, the Steelers figure to work in fellow reserve corners Al-Hajj Shabazz and Julian Whigham against New Orleans.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/15/16QBBruce GradkowskiHamstringDOUBTFULGradkowski, who is dealing with a left hamstring injury, is going to be out for "a number of weeks," per coach Mike Tomlin, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    The veteran QB could miss the rest of the preseason and in Gradkowski's absence, Dustin Vaughan figures to see added practice reps behind Ben Roethlisberger and Landry Jones.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    08/13/16DLAnthony ChickilloAnkleQUESTIONABLEChickillo suffered an apparent leg injury on Friday, Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    The extent of Chickillo's ankle injury is unknown, and he will be further evaluated before a timetable for his return is set in place.

    (Updated 08/12/2016)
    08/09/16DBSenquez GolsonFootOUTGolson (foot) claims he is a targeting a return to practice seven weeks from now, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.

    Golson underwent Lisfranc surgery roughly two weeks ago, but the former second round pick from 2015 is already mapping out his return to action. Just 23-years-old, Golson possesses tremendous upside and the Steelers remain optimistic that he can still carve out a role with the defense at some point in the season.

    (Updated 08/23/2016)
    08/04/16LBRyan ShazierUndisclosedPROBABLEShazier totaled seven tackles (six solo) in the Steelers' loss to the Broncos on Sunday. He finished with 20 tackles in two post season games.

    Despite missing four games this season due to injuries (knee, concussion), Shazier finished the year with 87 tackles (55 solo), second on Pittsburgh to Lawrence Timmons (119), including 3.5 sacks. He also had an interception, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. Shazier has one year remaining on his rookie contract, and the Steelers would be wise to resign him, just as fantasy owners would be to consider him on draft day in IDP formats.

    (Updated 01/17/2016)
    07/29/16WRMartavis BryantSuspensionSUSPENDBryant was never under consideration of being cut by the Steelers despite his recently imposed year-long suspension, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    Bryant's multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy triggered a minimum one-year suspension from the league, but the Steelers never considered releasing him, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Instead, Pittsburgh will hope Bryant makes the necessary changes to his life to get reinstated next year, when he would have two years remaining on his contract with the team. With Bryant suspended, Steelers receivers Markus Wheaton and, more specifically, Sammie Coates, will be looked upon to take advantage of their increased opportunities this season.

    (Updated 03/21/2016)
    02/19/16DBMike MitchellShoulderPROBABLEMitchell (shoulder) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from shoulder and hand surgery, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    Mitchell hasn't missed a game either of the past two seasons, but underwent shoulder surgery this offseason to repair a torn labrum that seemed to plague him during the conclusion of the 2015 campaign. The veteran went under the knife in December, and initially planned on taking his rehab slow, so to not take any risks before training camp, but he quickly progressed ahead of schedule in his recovery, and fully participated in June's minicamp just over four months removed from surgery. Mitchell should be full-go for the commencement of training camp come July 28.
