03/08/17LBTrent MurphySuspensionSUSPENDMurphy is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, The Washington Post reports.

Murphy will appeal the decision, but if it's upheld he won't be able to suit up for the Redskins' first four games in 2017. This is a disappointing development for a player who had a breakout season in 2016 to the tune of a career-high nine sacks and three forced fumbles.

02/18/17LBWill ComptonKnee - PCLQUESTIONABLECompton (knee) was extended a restricted free agent tender by the Redskins on Wednesday, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

The restricted free agent tender means that Compton will be free to negotiate with other franchises when the new league year begins on Thursday, but the Redskins will have the right to match any offer he receives. Compton had a career high 106 tackles and five passes defensed, including one interception, while playing in 15 games in 2016.

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) is expected to be 100 percent healthy by the end of March, Brian McNally of 106.7 FM The Fan reports.

Doctson was limited to just two games as a rookie while recovering from an Achilles injury sustained during the past offseason, and landed back on IR in October upon suffering a setback. The wideout has made strong progress in his recovery since the season ended, as he took part in running and catching drills last week and is expected to increase his activities in the weeks to come. If Doctson proves to be healthy when training camp opens in the summer, he could challenge for a starting role if the Redskins fail to restock their receiving corps when Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson become free agents in March.

01/26/17LBJunior GaletteAchillesQUESTIONABLEGalette (Achilles) is aiming to be ready for the beginning of training camp in late July, The Washington Post reports.

Galette has yet to log a snap for the Redskins due to a pair of torn Achilles before both of the past two seasons. It remains to be seen how compromised his explosiveness as a pass rusher may be, but he continues to rehab with appearances during the 2017 campaign in mind.

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) may end up competing with Mack Brown for the fourth spot on the depth chart, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson are locked in as contributors, while the team seemingly wants to give 2016 bust Matt Jones another shot. Such a scenario would leave Marshall on the outside looking in, even though there was some buzz surrounding him last season -- mostly due to his fantastic measurables. The 2016 seventh-round pick missed his entire rookie year with an elbow injury, though his absence largely may have stemmed from the team's desire to stash him on injured reserve. It's also possible the Redskins will actively address the running back position during the upcoming draft, which would further complicate Marshall's path to making the roster. All that said, Marshall could climb up a somewhat shaky depth chart if he impresses throughout the offseason program.

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.
