02/18/17LBWill ComptonKnee - PCLQUESTIONABLECompton (knee - PCL) is progressing well from the knee injury he suffered in Week 14 against the Eagles. "I feel good about where I'll be come April," he said.

Compton missed just one game due to the sprained PCL and played through the injury in both of the Redskins' final two games. Offseason surgery wasn't necessary, however, so the Nebraska product has subscribed to a regimen of rest and rehab as a means for recovery. He has until mid-April to return to full strength.

01/26/17LBHouston BatesKnee - ACLQUESTIONABLEBates (knee) was placed on IR Tuesday, Rich Tandler of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Bates tore his ACL on Sunday and the announcement that he'll be moved to IR is more of a formality. His absence leaves the Redskins with little depth at outside linebacker.

01/26/17LBSteven DanielsShoulderQUESTIONABLEDaniels 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.

01/26/17WRReggie DiggsKneeQUESTIONABLEDiggs (knee) was placed on the Redskins' injured reserve list Wednesday.

Diggs began training camp on Washington's PUP list after undergoing offseason knee surgery, but wasn't able to sufficiently progress in his recovery.

01/26/17WRJosh DoctsonAchillesQUESTIONABLEDoctson (Achilles) has been running drills and catching footballs, JP Finlay of CSNMidAtlantic.com reports.

Doctson continues his quest to a full recovery after injuring his Achilles in OTA's last offseason. Once fully healthy, he could become a major factor in Washington's offense with fellow wideouts Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson slated to become free agents in a couple weeks. Look for more updates on his road to recovery to come throughout the offseason.

01/26/17LBJunior GaletteAchillesQUESTIONABLEGalette will return to the Redskins on a one-year contract, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Although he has been with the Redskins the past two seasons, Galette has yet to appear in a game with the team. He ruptured his left Achilles prior to the 2015 season and his right this past July. According to The Washington Post, he and GM Scot McCloughan reportedly laid out plans for Galette to remain in Washington on a one-year deal for 2017 previously, so this news comes as no surprise.

01/26/17DLKedric GolstonHamstringQUESTIONABLEGolston (hamstring) hopes to return for his 12th professional season in 2017.

Golston, an unrestricted free agent, suffered a torn hamstring in Week 2 and was sent to injured reserve shortly thereafter. He was immobile for six weeks following September surgery, but after four months of rehabilitation, the 12-year veteran is back on his feet again. While it isn't clear how long it will take him to get back on the football field, Golston will have his pick among interested suitors if he can show teams his hamstring has fully recovered.

01/26/17DBDeAngelo HallKneeQUESTIONABLEHall (knee) has expressed desire to return to Washington next season, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the team's official site reports.

Hall said of the situation, "I would love to return to [play next year]. I think there's still a lot of plays out there I can make...We'll see, but I'm definitely trying to get back out there and play. I feel I can help us win games, I feel like I can make plays. We'll see though." The veteran safety tore his ACL during Week 3's win over the Giants and hasn't played a full season the past three years with Washington. It has been reported that the 33-year-old is ahead of schedule in the rehabbing process, but still has a ways to go to return to full health. Hall also noted he is open to restructuring the final year of his contract in order to give the team more cap space. Look for more updates on his situation to come throughout the offseason.

01/26/17DLAnthony LanierLower LegQUESTIONABLELanier (lower leg) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Lanier has missed the past few weeks due to foot and shin aliments, as the Redskins ultimately decided it would be best to end his season early. The rookie failed to take the field a notable amount this season, so his absence shouldn't have a grave impact on Washington's defensive scheme.

01/26/17RBKeith MarshallElbowQUESTIONABLEMarshall (elbow) was placed on injured-reserve on Tuesday.

Marshall is only expected to be sidelined for three weeks but by placing him on IR the Redskins don't have to face the option of releasing him. The rookie has on the bubble for making the final 53-man roster as he has been in tight competition with Rob Kelley for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart all season. Many believed Kelley had the edge heading into the final week of the preseason, but sending Marshall to IR saves the Redskins from making that tough decision. When he returns to full health, Marshall could be the perfect candidate to return from the IR mid-season as each team is allowed to remove a player from injured-reserve after Week 6.

01/26/17TENiles PaulShoulderQUESTIONABLEPaul (shoulder) is progressing ahead of schedule after undergoing shoulder surgery in November, Jake Kring-Schreifeis of the team's official site reports.

The veteran tight end said of his progress, "My progression is crazy and I'm in the weight room doing things I'm not supposed to be doing. I was doing pushups two months out and they couldn't believe that. I'm just trying to get right and to be mentally healthy for next season." Paul has only played in eight games the past two seasons due to various injuries but will look to put all that behind him in 2017. He is under contract for one more season and will look to compete with Jordan Reed, Derek Carrier, and others for reps once healthy.

01/26/17DBDonte WhitnerQuadricepsQUESTIONABLEWhitner (quad) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Whitner strained his quad in last week's game against Chicago and was evaluated during the week. The Redskins can likely secure a playoff spot with a win over the Giants on Sunday but they'll need to rely on Duke Ihenacho and David Bruton for safety help. Whitner will finish with 66 tackles and a forced fumble in 11 games played this year.

01/21/17RBRob KelleyKneeQUESTIONABLEKelley (knee) is currently projected as the Redskins' starting running back in 2017, Rich Tandler of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Kelley, an undrafted rookie last year, started Washington's final nine games of the season after Matt Jones failed to impress to begin the campaign. In those appearances, Kelley finished with 601 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Although a knee problem that required a small surgery this offseason slowed him toward the end of that stretch, Kelly showed enough to project as the Redskins' top tailback heading into next season. With his numbers as a starter, that role could see Kelley eclipse 1,000 yards in 2017, but he'll need to continue to prove he's the team's best option to have that opportunity.

01/20/17LBRyan KerriganElbowQUESTIONABLEKerrigan (finger) underwent minor surgery on his left elbow and will be sidelined for the next six to eight weeks, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

The minor surgery was used in order to clean up "loose bodies" in his left elbow. As a result, the linebacker will opt out of his Pro Bowl bid, which he earned after recording 33 tackles and 11 tackles in 16 games this season. Kerrigan originally injured his elbow back in mid-December, but played through the aliment for a handful of games before breaking his finger in Week 17's loss to the Giants. Barring any setbacks, the veteran should be ready for offseason team activities.

(Updated 01/20/2017)
01/02/17DBQuinton DunbarConcussionQUESTIONABLEDunbar (concussion) won't play in Sunday's regular season finale against the Giants.

Dunbar missed last week's game due to his concussion and has yet to return to practice. If the Redskins make the playoffs Dunbar will have a shot to play in the wildcard round. Greg Toler and Kendall Fuller figure to see added snaps once again with Dunbar sidelined.
