Doctson (Achilles) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Cleveland.
Doctson will miss a second straight game and could be out beyond Sunday, as his troublesome Achilles still hasn't fully healed. The rookie only had a limited role Weeks 1 and 2, but his absence did allow Pierre Garcon to play a season-high 55 snaps in Week 3 against the Giants. Already hindered by a crowded depth chart, Doctson seems increasingly unlikely to have a big year-one impact.
The Redskins have given the thumbs-down to defensive lineman Chris Baker (chest) and tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) for the Sunday game in San Francisco. Offensive linemen Trent Williams (knee/ankle) and Shawn Lauvao (concussion) are questionable.
Reyes (groin) has been ruled out for the Redskins' Week 2 matchup with the Cowboys.
Reyes has been nursing the injury for the past two weeks and was unable to take part in practice both Thursday and Friday. Cullen Jenkins and Anthony Lanier will combine to take his place in the meantime.
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.
Bethel (foot) practiced in full Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Bethel has endured a slow recovery from offseason foot surgery, which is expected to impact him throughout the campaign. Active status in Week 1 equated to 22 snaps on special teams and none on defense, but perhaps Wednesday's full showing will open the door to work in the defensive backfield. After rookie corner Brandon Williams was torched by the Patriots on Sunday, Bethel is the prime candidate to make a run at the starting job opposite Patrick Peterson, pending his health, of course.
Branch secured 10 tackles (nine solo) and one pass defended during Sunday's victory against the Buccaneers.
An offseason signee of the Cardinals, Branch has so far logged 78 percent of the defensive snaps, which ranks fourth among fellow defensive backs, while also picking up 61 percent on special teams. The multi-faceted defender should continue to receive plenty of run in a scheme that uses six DBs frequently and occasionally seven. Considering the usage and his veteran savvy, it's no surprise that he boasts the second-most tackles (16) on the team behind starting strong safety Tony Jefferson.
Butler (ankle) did not participate at Wednesday's practice and is considered doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Rams, Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910 reports.
Butler was seen in a walking boot at Wednesday's practice, and while he may hold snaps for Chandler Catanzaro on Sunday, the chances of him punting against the Rams seem slim. If Butler sits, the Cardinals will need to look elsewhere to delegate punting responsibilities.
