Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Detroit.
With TE Jordan Reed (concussion) already ruled out, Washington's passing attack would be rather thin if Jackson weren't able to play. The speedy wideout does seem to be trending in the right direction, returning to practice Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday, according to Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post. Head coach Jay Gruden said Thursday that he thinks Jackson will be able to play, Brian McNally of 106.7 The FAN reports.
Reed (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Detroit.
Given his lengthy history of concussions, it's not exactly surprising that Reed will take more than one week to make it through the league's protocol. Vernon Davis will fill in as the top tight end, with Niles Paul potentially also getting some looks. Wideouts Jamison Crowder, Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson (hamstring) could also take on a few extra targets.
The 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.
Galette 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.
Murray (toe) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, but he is expected to play, CSN Bay Area's Scott Bair reports.
Murray has missed Oakland's last two tilts due to turf toe, and although he was limited during practice this week, he's still slated to suit up Sunday. While the Raiders have frustrated fantasy owners with their mixture of running backs lately, Murray still leads the team with 43 rushing yards per game and three touchdowns on the ground. In fact, prior to his disappointing Week 4 performance, Murray scored in each of Oakland's first three contests.
The Raiders' offensive line took a big hit Sunday, when starting right tackle Menelik Watsonruptured his Achilles tendon in the first half. He will miss the entire 2015 season, per the San Francisco Chronicle.
Smith (suspension) has entered a treatment center, ESPN reports.
Smith's reason for seeking treatment is unclear, but it comes just days after a Periscope video titled "Fire up session" surfaced of an unidentified man, suspected to be him, talking about a hand-rolled cigarette shown on screen. In wake of that video, which appeared under an account previously used by Smith, the NFL has launched an investigation into whether he violated protocols required of a suspended player seeking reinstatement from a substance abuse violation. While that investigation continues, Smith's move to now enter a treatment facility hardly seems coincidental, and more details regarding his situation should surface soon.
