05/31/17WRKendal ThompsonLegQUESTIONABLEThompson suffered an undisclosed leg injury and will be out for the remainder of OTAs, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Thompson, who missed Wednesday's OTA, hopes to be back for the start of training camp according to Redskins coach Jay Gruden. Buried on the depth chart at wide receiver, Thompson will be a long shot to make the team's final roster, regardless of his health.

05/05/17LBTrent MurphySuspensionSUSPENDMurphy is officially suspended for the first four games of the 2017 regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.

Murphy appealed the decision but was denied. While he's still eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games, the Redskins could enter the 2017 campaign with very little depth at outside linebacker, depending on what they do in the upcoming draft, considering Junior Galette (Achilles, legal troubles) is also at risk of missing some action at the beginning of the season.

04/29/17DBFabian MoreauChestQUESTIONABLEThe Redskins selected Moreau (pectoral) in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 81st overall.

Originally a projected top-50 pick, a torn pectoral muscle suffered during the UCLA pro day set back Moreau's stock with a 4-to-6 month prognosis. That means he might be ready to play as early as late July, and as late as late September.

02/18/17LBWill ComptonKnee - PCLQUESTIONABLECompton (knee) signed his restricted free agent tender with the Redskins on Monday, ESPN's John Keim reports.

Compton went undrafted out of Nebraska but has developed into a valued member of the Redskins defense through his first four seasons. The 27-year-old has posted at least 95 tackles in back-to-back campaigns, including a career-best 106 stops last year, which came despite him dealing with a sprained PCL toward the end of the season. However, after not needing surgery to repair that problem, Compton should now be raring to go as he faces competition from offseason signee Zach Brown for a starting inside linebacker position this term.

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.

01/26/17LBJunior GaletteAchillesQUESTIONABLEGalette (Achilles) is getting closer to returning to full strength, John Keim on ESPN.com reports. "He's got a little ways to go," head coach Jay Gruden noted, "but you can see that he's got the quick twitch, which you really need off the edge."

Gruden and the Redskins are hoping Galette can make a full comeback after missing the majority of the past two seasons with Achilles injuries. When healthy, Galette represents Washington's best pass rusher of the edge, but the team isn't afraid to patiently wait for the 29-year-old to get to that point. Preston Smith got the starting reps last week during OTAs but they also have second-round pick Ryan Anderson and Trent Murphy, who is suspended for the first four games of the season. All this considered, it appears the Redskins will run strongside linebacker by committee this year, which will hopefully include Galette at some point.

01/26/17DBDeAngelo HallKneeQUESTIONABLEHall (knee) restructured his contract for the upcoming season and will now make a base salary of $2.3M instead of $4.25M, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Hall, who continues to rehab from a torn ACL suffered in Week 3 of the 2016 season, will be entering his 14th year in the league. Hall said that he could have gotten a decent payday by going into the broadcasting field, but he still has passion for the game and wants to get back on the field while he physically can.

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.

01/26/17DBDonte 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.

01/20/17LBRyan 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.

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.
