Moreover, offensive tackle Vinston Painter suffered a neck injury, which also forced him to leave practice early.
Taylor, a first-rounder out of Baylor in 2011, spent the summer with the Broncos but couldn't stay healthy. The Redskins then hosted him for a tryout in Week 6 but didn't extend a contract offer. However, they evidently saw enough in Taylor to bring him back on a future contract and will get to see what he has left to offer throughout the offseason.
Smith will be available as expected after logging a full practice on Friday, and he's expected to start at outside linebacker across from Ryan Kerrigan.
Breeland went down during Week 16 against the Bears with an ankle issue, but he avoided any serious issues and looks ready for Sunday's tilt versus the Giants. He figures to draw the start at cornerback opposite Josh Norman with playoff implications on the line.
Crowder fizzled out towards the end of his breakout season, as he recorded nine receptions for 80 yards in Washington's last four contests, failing to reach the end zone in every game. Still, it was an impressive year for the 23-year-old, as the No. 3 wideout recorded 67 receptions for 847 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 games. He may take on an even larger offensive role next season as DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon could potentially go elsewhere in the offseason. If that is the case, look for Crowder's fantasy value to boost in 2017.
The strong safety suffered a concussion in Week 8 but will now return to the field to reclaim his role as starter. Veteran Donte Whitner could see increased action should Ihenacho see his reps closely monitored.
Wolff hasn't played in a game since he tore his ACL in November of 2014. The safety didn't play this past year but will hope to secure a spot, likely at the bottom of the depth chart, in Washington for the 2017 season.
Foster was all over the field on Sunday, having his best performance of an already highly impressive season. In his second year with the Redskins, Foster led the team with 124 tackles, which is also a career-best for the linebacker. He is under contract through the 2018 season and will aim to continue his success next year as a leader of the Washington defense.
Jones hasn't played since Week 7 loss to the Lions, fumbling twice in the contest, losing one on the goal line that ultimately played a major role in the 20-17 defeat. Since then, the once promising running back has been ruled inactive for the majority of the contests, making way for rookie Rob Kelley. Gruden said he hopes Jones learned the importance of ball security this season. The Redskins still haven an opportunity to make the playoffs, so Jones may still get a chance to take the field before season ends, although it seems like a long shot at this point.
Norman had his best performance of the season, picking off Matt Barkley two times, adding to the quarterback's five total on the day. He now has 62 tackles, 18 pass deflections, and three interceptions on the season, mirroring his totals from last year's breakout season with the Panthers.
Williams will average $13.2 million during the contract with $43.25 million guaranteed. Williams has started 70 games for the Redskins over the last five seasons.
Toler replaced Quinton Dunbar after the latter suffered a concussion in the third quarter. Toler then suffered a concussion himself, leaving Kendall Fuller to take over as the team's third cornerback. If Toler or Dunbar is unable to play this Saturday against the Bears, Fuller will likely continue to see an increased role.
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.
Reed was limited all week due to shoulder aliment but didn't seemed to be bothered by it in the season-finale. Reed scored the team's lone touchdown, a one-yard strike from Kirk Cousins in the third quarter. He'll now shift his focus to getting healthy in the offseason, as he continuously popped up on Washington's injury report throughout the season. Through all the injuries, Reed recorded 66 receptions for 686 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games.
Simon began the 2016 season as a member of the Seahawks, but was waived prior to Week 2 only to be claimed by the Cardinals shortly thereafter. However, he ultimately finished out the season in Arizona having logged just six tackles across 76 snaps on defense and will now set his aims to fight for a reserve role in Washington during the offseason.
In his rookie season, Cravens totaled 34 tackles, five pass deflections, one sack, and one interception in 11 games at linebacker. The 21-year-old (6'1, 222-pounds) will now make the move to safety in his second season, a role he gained experience in during his time at USC. With veterans Duke Ihenacho and Donte Whitner heading into free agency and DeAngelo Hall (knee) still recovering from an ACL tear, it seems more likely than not that Cravens will head into the season as a starting safety. What the former linebacker lacks in speed, he makes up for in intelligence and tackling ability. Look for more updates on his transition to come throughout the offseason.
A 2014 sixth-round selection, Hazel was mostly a gameday inactive through his first two years in the league. With Branden Shippen also waived Saturday, it appears Griff Whalen and/or Rashawn Scott will fill out the No. 5/6 spots on the Miami depth chart at wide receiver.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Silas Redd received one carry, gaining 8 yards. He finished second on the team in rushing. Redd did manage to make an impact in the passing game, though. He caught three passes for 36 yards. Redd was targeted four times. Punter Tress Way also got a carry, gaining 2 yards.
They'll look for more Week 15 against the Giants.
Scherff will once again get the start at offensive guard despite dealing with a minor ankle issue. This comes as good news for Washington, who will be thin at guard in Week 14, considering Shawn Lauvao (groin) and Spencer Long (concussion) have both been ruled out.
Jackson is coming off his second 1,000-yard season since arriving in Washington in 2014, which figures to make him a hot commodity on the free agent market this offseason. Despite his stated desire to remain with the Redskins, Jackson is expected to have attractive offers elsewhere, which should complicate his decision-making process. Not only that, but Washington is also tasked with fellow wideout Pierre Garcon and quarterback Kirk Cousins being free agents, making their cap situation less flexible than some of Jackson's potential suitors. As a result, the 30-year-old's future employer is far from certain, which leaves his 2017 fantasy outlook in need of valuable context before it can be shaped.
Baker was questionable to play due to an ankle issue entering the contest, but was ultimately cleared to play. While his five tackles were good for fifth on the team, nearly every Washington defender was overshadowed by Mason Foster's 17 total tackles.
It was a quiet night for the No. 2 quarterback as he managed the second half of Friday's win. McCoy has had a decent preseason, assuring Washington they're in good hands if anything happens to starter Kirk Cousins. McCoy's big day will come next week against the Buccaneers as he will likely start under center after head coach Jay Gruden confirmed all starters will rest.
Shortly after his selection in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Doctson injured his left Achilles in OTAs, which lingered into training camp, the preseason, and the regular season itself. Granted, he attempted to tough out the ailment in Weeks 1 and 2, accounting for a 57-yard grab among his two catches. Eventually landing on IR, he was given leash as the Redskins' potential designee from the list, but his Achilles never stabilized enough to allow for such a scenario. Considering Gruden's comments, Doctson will be a regular in the trainer's room this offseason as he attempts to uphold lofty expectations.
Jean-Francois' availability this week is important for the Redskins while backup Anthony Lanier (lower leg) is sidelined. Expect Jean-Francois to start at defensive end opposite Chris Baker.
Jenkins was released by the Redskins just two weeks ago, but due to Washington's abysmal performance on the defensive line Monday, the team will now rely on Jenkins to help turn things around. The 13-year vet has more experience than any current member of the Washington front seven. Last season, Jenkins tallied three sacks and 26 combined tackles across all 16 games for the Giants.
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.
Carrier will suit up, but he likely won't be much of a fantasy factor with Jordan Reed (shoulder) returning from a one-week absence. Carrier hasn't received more than a single target in a game this season, and getting noticed will be tough Sunday behind Reed and Vernon Davis on the depth chart.
With DeSean Jackson (jaw) forced out the game and a victory safely in reach, Grant was able to take the field for some garbage time. It marks his first game with a reception since Week 13. Grant could be expected to take on a larger role in the season-finale next Sunday should Jackson be forced out due to injury.
Fuller dropped into the third round of this year's draft because of the knee injury he suffered last year in college, but had been given first-round grades by several teams had he owned a clean bill of health. Fortunately, he participated in minicamp last month without setbacks, and declared himself healthy afterword. Fuller is fully capable of playing on the outside, but with Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland locking down the top corner jobs, Fuller will be tasked to handle nickleback duties his rookie year. However, he will still have to earn the job in training camp.
Diggs began training camp on Washington's PUP list after undergoing offseason knee surgery, but wasn't able to sufficiently progress in his recovery.
The veteran wideout led the team in receiving Sunday, putting him over 1000 receiving yards on the season for the first time since 2013. His seventh season ends with 79 receptions for 1041 yards and three touchdowns. He will now enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent. The wideout has proven to be a valuable cog in Washington's offense, but may not be as crucial to the team next season given the emergence of Jamison Crowder this year.
This is now the third time Phillips has been called up to the Redskins' active roster this season. His addition likely signals that Qunton Dunbar (concussion) won't be cleared in time to play Saturday against the Bears.
Blackmon missed last week's game against the Eagles due to his concussion but after practicing in full Saturday he was expected to play Monday. He's expected to start at safety alongside Duke Ihenacho.
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.
Thompson led the team in receptions in Washington's season-finale, recording his best receiving performance since Week 7. The 26-year-old provided a nice counter to starter Rob Kelley throughout the season, cementing his role as the team's third down back. He ends his 2016-17 campaign with 68 rushing attempts for 356 yards and three touchdowns while adding 49 receptions for 349 yards and two touchdowns. He will now be a restricted free agent this offseason.
With the game safely out of reach, Brown received some garbage time minutes late in the game and made the most of his opportunity. The No. 3 back had an impressive 61-yard touchdown run with a minute left in the contest, sealing the Week 16 victory. While his run was very impressive, Washington will still likely rely on Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson in the rushing attack next week against the Giants, especially if their playoff hopes are still alive.
Saxton was competing for a backup role at tight end with the Jets. Both he and Zach Sudfeld have been released by the team, which leaves Jace Amaro and Brandon Bostick to backup Kellen Davis. Saxton recorded 24 yards on three receptions in the team's final preseason game.
The have released the following offensive players: wide receivers Jamar Newsome, LaRon Byrd and Dezmon Briscoe, guards Stephen Goodin and Uche Nwaneri, running backs Ryan Williams, Phillip Tanner and D.J. Adams, tackle Josh Aladenoye, center Ronald Patrick and tight end Asa Watson.
Among the defenders they let go are linemen Kenneth Boatright, Dartwan Bush and Caesar Rayford, cornerback Terrance Mitchell, safety Ryan Smithl and linebackers Dontravis Sapp, Will Smith and Keith Smith.
After starting the season as an inactive, Harris solidified himself as the No. 4 wideout option for Washington. In 10 games he recorded eight receptions for 66 yards on 12 targets. The rookie will now be a free agent and it remains unseen if Washington plans to bring him back into the fold. Should he return, he will likely compete for a reserve role, with wideouts like Josh Doctson (Achilles) and Reggie Diggs (knee) expected to return from injury.
For the second consecutive offseason, the Redskins are expected to use their franchise tag on Cousins, per Adam Schefter of ESPN, which would be accompanied by a cap commitment of $23.94 million for the 2017 campaign. Holding leverage over the organization due to lacking QB talent on their roster, nary an equivalent option on the upcoming free-agent market, and an underwhelming draft class, Cousins has significant leverage in contract negotiations once the tender is signed. If the preceding comes to fruition, the parties will have until July 15 to reach agreement on a long-term deal, with Cousins' representation fully aware of his value due to the new surroundings for Tony Romo (potentially) and Brian Hoyer, among other signal-callers.
Murphy finished the game with four tackles and isn't known to have suffered any sort of setback.
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.
Francis failed to make much, if any, of an impact for the Redskins this season and was released in order to activate offensive lineman Kory Lichtensteiger off injured reserve.
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.
Long played in just five games as a rookie, but the former college walk-on has applied that mentality to his work during OTAs, and his experience, however brief, has made a big difference.
"It's night and day different than as a rookie," Long said. "Your body is used to the speed, the tempo. You already have a jump on the mental game, you know how to study, you know how to prepare. It's such a smoother transition coming into this year."
Sudfeld, a sixth-round pick, gets the nod for the Thursday as he looks to impress the coaching staff in the hopes that they will keep three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster. Washington's quarterback situation is set in stone with Kirk Cousins leading the charge and Colt McCoy securing his role as the No. 2 man.
Galette, a seven-year veteran, has been with the Redskins for the past two seasons but is yet to appear in a game as he ruptured his left Achilles prior to the 2015 campaign and his right Achilles last July. Both injuries prevented him from suiting up at any point in the following season. Now set to hit free agency, Galette has no plans to retire. In fact, he claims he and GM Scot McCloughan have already laid out the plans for Galette to remain in Washington for the 2017 season on a one-year deal.
Sullivan was held out of Saturday's practice session due to illness and his status for Monday was up in the air as a result. As a depth offensive lineman he's unlikely to see much time, barring injuries that would force him into a larger role.
The veteran tight end had a resurgence this season, recording 44 receptions for 583 yards and two touchdowns, his highest totals since the 2013. Davis was written off as an afterthought to much of the league, considering his lackluster performances in San Fransisco and Denver last year. Washington inked the veteran to a one-year deal in the hopes that they could transition the former playmaker into a run blocking specialist. However, with several injuries to Jordan Reed, Davis found himself as the starter in many games throughout the season and made the most of his opportunities. Now 32, it remains unseen what the former Pro Bowler will do next season, but after this bounce back season he may have some teams knocking at his door.
Hopkins missed a 57-yard attempt to close out the first half of the game. On the season, Hopkins went 34-for-42 in field goal attempts and 36-for-39 on extra point attempts. The kicker struggled from distance, as four of his misses came from over 50 yards this year. The 26-year-old is under contract through 2017, so he'll enter the offseason as the incumbent kicker.
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.
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.
Evans played with the Redskins early in the season and was resigned as a result of veteran safety Donte Whitner being moved to injured reserve. Look for Evans to serve as a depth safety who could help out on special teams as well.
