Even if he is healthy, Riley (foot) won't necessarily work with the first-team defense at the start of training camp, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.
Riley missed the final six games of last season, opening up a starting spot for Mason Foster alongside Will Compton. The Redskins went with that same duo during the offseason program, with Riley unavailable while rehabbing from November surgery. Riley is expected to be healthy for the start of camp, but while previously reports suggested he'd likely slot in as a starter, it now seems he'll have to compete with Compton and/or Foster. Entering the final season of a three-year, $12 million deal, Riley may find his roster spot in jeopardy if he doesn't win a starting job, as the Redskins can save approximately $4 million by releasing him.
Riley had foot surgery in late November and missed the rest of the season, finishing with 43 tackles (23 solo) and two interceptions in nine games. Assuming no complications, he'll likely step back in as a starter at inside linebacker, with Mason Foster and Will Compton expected to compete for the other job. Riley has missed nine games over the past two years, but he did record 115+ tackles and 3+ sacks in back-to-back seasons not so long ago (2012-13).
Perry Riley (foot) is inactive for Sunday's playoff game against the Packers.
Riley, who is recovering from surgery on his right foot, made his return to practice this past week, suggesting that he could be ready to go by next weekend should Washington advance to the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
Perry Riley (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, ESPN's John Keim reports.
Riley missed the final five weeks of the regular season after undergoing foot surgery in late November, so it's not clear if he will be available against the Packers come Sunday. If the 27-year-old linebacker were to miss this week's contest, Mason Foster, who has started alongside Will Compton at inside linebacker the last two weeks, could see an increase in snaps.
Riley is in serious danger of missing the rest of the regular season, but it does sound like he'd have a decent shot to return if the
