Position Listing
Vinston Painter
Browns running back Luke Lundy had to leave Sunday's practice after sustaining a concussion, reports the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.

Moreover, offensive tackle Vinston Painter suffered a neck injury, which also forced him to leave practice early.

Preston Smith
Smith (ankle) is questionable to return to the Redskins' Week 2 game against the Cowboys, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Smith logged half a sack prior to exiting the game. Trent Murphy will likely take his place if he's unable to return.

Bashaud Breeland
Breeland (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's contest against Cincinnati.

Breeland sprained his ankle in last week's loss to the Lions and was limited in a few practices as a result. He was able to participate in full on Friday and it would be a bit of a surprise if he doesn't play this week.

Ankle - Full Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 8 at Cincinnati
Jamison Crowder
Crowder (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

As is the case with teammate DeSean Jackson (hamstring/shoulder), there been nothing to suggest that Crowder is in any real danger of missing Sunday's game. The slot wideout was a limited participant throughout the week of practice, after turning in the second 100-yard game of his career in a Week 7 loss to the Lions.

Groin - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 8 at Cincinnati
Duke Ihenacho
Ihenacho re-signed with Washington on Wednesday, Rick Snider of The Washington Post reports.

Ihenacho will remain with Washington after spending the past two seasons with the team. He now has a chance to claim a starting role after the release of Dashon Goldson and Jeron Johnson earlier in the week. Last season he played in just one game, recording three tackles.

Kory Lichtensteiger
Redskins defensive end Jason Hatcher has missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Hatcher has missed Washington's last two games with a knee injury.

Trent Williams (shoulder), Chris Baker (toe/elbow), Gabe Miller (ankle), Keenan Robinson (knee) and Stephen Bowen (ankle/illness) are all listed as questionable for the game. 

Robert Griffin III (shoulder), Bashaud Breeland (thigh), Barry Coefield (shoulder), Tom Compton (knee), Will Compton (shoulder), Jackson Jeffcoat (calf), Kory Lichtensteiger (stinger) and Darrel Young (ankle) are all considered probable.

The Redskins are currently 5 1/2-point underdogs at home against the Cowboys. 

Calf - Injured Reserve
Mason Foster
Foster recorded five tackles Sunday against the Giants.

This was the first time that Foster failed to record double-digit tackles in a game, and he now has 29 of them on the season. The six-year veteran has never posted more than 105 tackles in a season, but he's clearly off to a great start, and he could be a sneaky add in IDP leagues.

Matt Jones
Head coach Jay Gruden announced Friday that Jones (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Jones was unable to get on the practice field this week due to his knee injury, and set setback will prevent him from playing Sunday as well. It remains to be seen how long he will be sidelined, but he will have an extra week to recover before the next game thanks to the Redskins' Week 9 bye. Gruden said Thursday that Rob Kelley would likely be the primary back this week if Jones was unable to go, but he did not confirm that Friday, and both Kelley and Chris Thompson figure to see more work in Jones' absence

Knee - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 8 at Cincinnati
Josh Norman
Norman (concussion/wrist) is listed as questionable for Washington's tilt against the Bengals on Sunday.

Norman suffered a concussion during last week's loss to the Lions. He was limited in practice all week and traveled to London with the team, though his status remains up in the air. Quinton Dunbar figures to see extra time if Norman is held out.

Concussion - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 8 at Cincinnati
Trent Williams
The Redskins made offensive tackle Trent Williams the highest paid tackle in NFL history after the two sides reached a five-year deal worth $66 million, reports the NFL Network.

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.

Knee - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 8 at Cincinnati
Greg Toler
Washington and Toler agreed to a one-year contract Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Toler's tackle total each season has wobbled throughout his six-year career, but after recording at least one interception in each of his first five campaigns, he failed to pick off a pass in 2015. With Chris Culliver recovering from a torn ACL and MCL, Washington has brought Toler and Will Blackmon into the fold this offseason, likely to compete for the starting cornerback gig opposite Bashaud Breeland. As a result, Toler could return to IDP relevance with an impressive preseason.

Arie Kouandjio
No Updates
Keith Marshall
Marshall (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.

Elbow - Injured Reserve
Jordan Reed
Reed (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Reed was able to practice on a limited basis every day this week and said after Friday's session that he is feeling good and expects to play this week. He appears set to return to action after missing the last two games, but given his questionable designation and the fact that Sunday's game is in London and begins at 9:30 AM ET, those who are planning to include him in this week's lineups will likely want to check on his status early Sunday morning.

Concussion - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 8 at Cincinnati
Rashad Ross
Ross is still the No. 1 kick returner for the Redskins along with being the No. 3 option at punt returner, Chris Russell of 1067 The Fan reports.

Ross earned himself a spot on the 53-man roster thanks in part to his versatility and ability to play multiple positions. He may not see many targets in the passing game, but could rack up kick return yards, making him a deep option in leagues that award such stats.

Su'a Cravens
Cravens (concussion) is active for Sunday's matchup with Detroit.

Cravens was a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday but there was still a chance he would be held out for a third straight week. He'll return to his role as a rotational linebacker behind Mason Foster and Will Compton.

Silas Redd
The NFL has suspended Redd indefinitely for a violation of the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Bans of this variety are due to continued positive tests, which is evident as Redd has yet to serve a four-gamer for a similar violation due to his recovery from a torn ACL and MCL. Once healthy enough to return to the field, he'll have to bide his time and do his due diligence considering NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will be in charge of any reinstatement effort.

Suspension - Suspended indefinitely
Terence Garvin
Garvin (hip) is questionable for Sunday's Week 8 matchup with the Bengals.

Garvin missed practice on Wednesday before seeing limited action on Thursday and Friday as he works through his unspecified hip injury. The linebacker has played just 6.4 percent of Washington's defensive snaps this season and his status likely won't impact the team greatly.

Hip - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 8 at Cincinnati
Matt Hazel
Hazel was waived by the Dolphins on Saturday, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

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.

DeAngelo Hall
Hall's (knee) MRI revealed a torn ACL, effectively ruling him out for the remainder of this season, Erin Hawksworth of ABC 7 News reports.

Hall went down just before halftime of Sunday's win over the Giants. Unfortunately, it's not the first time the 32-year-old has seen his season cut short due to injury, especially lately, as Hall has now played just 17 games over the past three seasons. With him unavailable going forward, Will Blackmon could be promoted to the Redskins' starting free safety position.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Donte Whitner
Whitner is expected to see increased action in the nickel position alongside Duke Ihenacho at strong safety this season.

After David Burton (concussion) was placed on the IR, Washington brought in the veteran Whitner to sure-up the secondary. In his second game with the team, the 31-year-old recorded four tackles on 40 defensive snaps. Head coach Jay Gruden said of the safety situation, "You start with Duke and Donte is going to play a lot. It might depend on the package. It might be more nickel for Donte, it might be more base for Duke, or what have you. That's something that we'll decide on a week-to-week basis and a game-to-game basis depending on who we're playing." Look for Whitner to see a similar snap count this weekend against the Lions.

Houston Bates
The Redskins announced they have signed defensive end Frank Kearse on Monday. Kearse had been released by the team over the weekend.

Linebacker Houston Bates was waived in a corresponding move on Monday. 

Steven Daniels
Daniels 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.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Ryan Kerrigan
Kerrigan recorded a pair of sacks and four tackles Sunday against the Eagles.

Kerrigan certainly isn't going to earn his keep by recording tackles, as he has just 14 of them on the season. However, he's now gotten to the quarterback in four of the six games he's played, and his 4.5 sacks have him ranked 10th in the league. The veteran has recorded at least 7.5 sacks in each of his first five seasons, and he has a realistic chance to match the 13.5 sacks he posted in 2014.

Isaiah Williams
No Updates
Deshazor Everett
The Redskins signed former Seahawks tightend Anthony McCoy and waived cornerback DeShazor Everett on Monday, according to the Washington Post.
Tress Way
Washington's backup running backs did little Week 14 against the Rams.

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. 

Brandon Scherff
Scherff (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Scherff exited last week's game against the Lions due to sprained AC joint but he eventually returned to the game. He was limited in practice this week and could play through the injury. Look for Arie Kouandijio to see a spot start if Scherff is forced to sit out.

Shoulder - AC Joint - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 8 at Cincinnati
Carlos Fields
The Giants signed cornerback Victor Hampton and linebacker Carlos Fields to the practice squad Tuesday, the New York Daily News reports.
Ziggy Hood
Hood was released by the Bears on Tuesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

A first-round selection back in 2009, Hood has just 12.5 sacks and 164 tackles in 96 career games. Wherever he might land, he'll likely have to compete for a back-end roster spot next season.

DeSean Jackson
Jackson (hamstring/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Jackson was a limited participant throughout the week of practice, after managing just one limited showing ahead of last week's appearance in Detroit. While the Washington injury report continues to suggest the speedy wideout is banged up, there's been no indication of legitimate concern about his availability for Sunday's game. A limited practice schedule may just be his new norm as the team tries to manage his assortment of minor ailments.

Hamstring - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 8 at Cincinnati
Martrell Spaight
Spaight (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Spaight will continue to be sidelined by a concussion that kept him out of Week 2's loss to the Cowboys. He'll have to pass the league's concussion protocol testing before he returns to the field. In his absence, Su'a Cravens (hip) and Terrence Garvin are the likely benefactors of an increased snap count.

Chris Baker
Baker (ribs) is questionable for the Redskins' Week 3 matchup against the Giants.

Baker has been roughed up as of late, considering how the Hampton product is reportedly nursing injuries to his ribs, elbow, toe and knee. However, he also entered last week's contest listed as questionable and ultimately wound up playing. Nonetheless, his status will be confirmed prior to kickoff.

Colt McCoy
McCoy completed seven of 10 passes for 59 yards in Friday's win over the Bills.

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.

Josh Doctson
Doctson (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

This transaction has been rumored for the last few weeks, as Doctson continues to be plagued by soreness in both of his Achilles tendons even though testing hasn't revealed any structural damage. The hope is that he can make a full recovery with a few months of rest, but it's unclear if he's viewed as a candidate to return from injured reserve. The team may just want to wait until next season, considering it already has a solid wideout trio comprised of DeSean Jackson (shoulder), Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder. Of course, there's always a chance injuries could thing the group out, which might lead to an earlier re-evaluation of Doctson's progress. Regardless, the 2106 first-round selection has virtually no chance to help fantasy teams this season. 2017 could be a different story, as Jackson and Garcon are both slated to hit free agency.

Achilles - Injured Reserve
Ricky Jean Francois
The Redskins signed defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois to a three-year deal Thursday, reports the NFL Network.

The deal is believed to be worth $9 million with $4 million guaranteed. With incentives, the deal can reach $11.25 million.

Jean Francois was cut by the Colts on Monday. In 2014, Jean Francois totaled 28 tackles and three sacks.

Nick Sundberg
The Redskins released safety Jordan Pugh and signed defensive back Trenton Robinson, reports 106.7 The Fan. Washington also placed long snapper Nick Sundberg and linebacker Bryan Kehl on IR with knee injuries.

Long snapper Kyle Nelson was signed to replace Sundberg, and linebacker Josh Hull was added to replace Kehl.

Cullen Jenkins
Jenkins will re-sign with the Redskins on Tuesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

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.

Niles Paul
Paul was active but saw just six offensive snaps in Week 1.

Paul saw the majority of his work come on special teams after not seeing a single target. As the No. 3 tight end in Washington, it seems unlikely that he has any fantasy value unless injuries force the team to play him more.

Tye Smith
The Seahawks have six of their eight draft picks under contract.

Picks that have signed are:

Fourth-round guard Terry Poole, fourth-round guard Mark Glowinski, sixth-round defensive end Obum Gwacham, fifth-round cornerback Tye Smith, sixth-round center Kristjan Sokoli and seventh-round safety Ryan Murphy.

The only picks yet to sign with the team are second-round defensive end Frank Clark and third-round receiver Tyler Lockett.

Derek Carrier
Carrier (knee) could resume practicing soon.

Carrier has spent the first six weeks of the season on the Redskins' PUP list after suffering a season-ending knee injury towards the end of the 2015 campaign. It's unclear when he actually will return to practice, and, consequently, it may still be a while before he is ready for game action.

Knee - Physically Unable to Perform
Morgan Moses
Redskins tackle Morgan Moses has sustained a Lisfranc injury that will require surgery, according to the Washington Times.

Moses did not play Sunday against St. Louis and is out for the season.

Ryan Grant
Grant recorded one 38-yard touchdown reception in Friday's preseason win over the Bills.

While it was a quiet night for Grant, he showed up when it mattered most, shaking Bills' safety Sterling Moore with a nifty spin move on the way to a 38-yard touchdown. With starters resting for the preseason finale next Thursday, Grant figures to see a good amount of reps as he competes with the likes of Jamison Crowder (knee) and rookie Josh Doctson (Achilles) for the No. 3 wide receiver spot.

Kendall Fuller
Fuller (knee) will be under consideration for the Redskins' nickelback role after returning from microfracture surgery, The Washington Post reports.

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.

Reggie Diggs
Diggs (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.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Pierre Garcon
Garcon hauled in two receptions for 22 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Garcon had a very quiet day when he had an opportunity to produce big numbers with Jordan Reed (concussion) and DeSean Jackson battling a shoulder injury. Look for the 30-year-old to bounce back this week against the Bengals.

Dashaun Phillips
Phillips (hamstring) is questionable to play against the Eagles on Sunday.

Phillips has missed two games with a vague hamstring injury. Greg Toler will likely assume an expanded role if he can't play.

Shawn Lauvao
The Redskins have given the thumbs-down to defensive lineman Chris Baker (chest) and tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) for the Sunday game in San Francisco. Offensive linemen Trent Williams (knee/ankle) and Shawn Lauvao (concussion) are questionable.
Will Blackmon
Blackmon has agreed to a two-year deal with the Redskins, The Washington Post reports.

Blackmon joined the Redskins as a veteran depth signing ahead of last season, but surpassed expectations by compiling a career-best 49 tackles and two interceptions over the course of the campaign. At 31 years old, Blackmon now finds himself as one of Washington's top cornerbacks heading into the upcoming season, when he'll hope to build on his 2015 success.

Rob Kelley
Head coach Jay Gruden said Friday that Kelley will have a big opportunity in Sunday's game against the Bengals, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Matt Jones (knee) was officially ruled out for Sunday's game in London, leaving Kelley, Chris Thompson and Mack Brown as the team's healthy running backs. According to ESPN's John Keim, head coach Jay Gruden said Thursday that Kelley would likely take on the lead role in the event of a Jones absence, with Thompson mostly sticking in the passing-down role he's thrived in. Kelley, an undrafted rookie, thus figures to get the first crack at early-down carries, which could also make him Sunday's starter. However, it's still possible Thompson will take on a larger role than usual -- particularly on the heels of last week's strong showing in Detroit. There's also some chance Brown could eat into Kelley's carries, though Thompson seems like the bigger threat.

Chris Thompson
Thompson rushed for 73 yards on 12 carries and snatched all seven passes that came his way for 40 yards in Sunday's loss to Detroit.

The 103 total yards and 19 touches both marked season highs for Thompson, who got extended looks with Matt Jones fumbling twice. He has now reached double digits in touches in consecutive weeks and should be in line for more. His small stature makes his vulnerable to losing goal-line carries, but having caught 14 total passes in the past three games, he might already be a worth-while play in PPR leagues.

Joey Mbu
Mbu recorded four tackles in two games with the Falcons this season.

Mbu worked his way back to the active roster after being waived as an undrafted free agent during training camp. He is under contract for one more year, but he'll need to battle for a roster spot.

Mack Brown
The Redskins promoted Brown from their practice squad to the active roster Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Brown, who ran for 149 yards in Washington's preseason finale, will provide a boost to the depth at the running back position. Perhaps more importantly, at least for fantasy owners, his promotion signals that Redskins are concerned about the availability of fellow running back Matt Jones (knee) for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Wes Saxton
The Jets let Saxton go on Saturday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

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.

Ronald Patrick
The Cowboys have sliced their roster down to 53 with a slew of moves on Saturday.

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.

The Cowboys also waived/injured linebacker Orie Lemon and defensive tackle Zach Minter while placing safety Jakar Hamilton and cornerback Orlando Scandrick on the reserve/suspended list.

Maurice Harris
No Updates
Kirk Cousins
Cousins connected on 30 of 39 pass attempts for 301 yards and a touchdown and added 19 yards and a touchdown on three carries in Sunday's loss to Detroit. He fumbled twice during the contest, losing one.

After keeping quiet for much of the game, Cousins was an Anquan Boldin touchdown away of leading a Washington comeback. The passer led Washington to its first touchdown of the game midway through the fourth quarter with a one-yard dump off to Rob Kelley and then followed up with a 19-yard keep on a zone read for Washington's second score - giving them the lead with just moments left. Running the ball was an underrated component of Cousins' game last season - ranking among the top quarterbacks with five rushing scores. Cousins is on pace for six fewer touchdown passes than last year, but the pace drops to nine off when you factor in rushing - illustrating why Cousins is not performing as well this season from a fantasy perspective despite an uptick in yardage.

Trent Murphy
Murphy (shoulder) was removed from the Redskins' final Week 6 injury report.

Murphy was limited in practice both Wednesday and Thursday but returned in full on Friday. He isn't expected to be limited at all in Sunday's tilt.

Matthew Ioannidis
No Updates
Will Compton
Compton (head) was unlisted on the Redskins' injury report Wednesday, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Compton suffered a concussion scare after taking a blow to the head in Sunday's win over the Eagles. However, it was confirmed on Monday that he did not suffer a concussion. His absence from Wednesday's injury report seemingly suggests he should be ready to go for Week 7.

David Bruton
Bruton entered the NFL's concussion protocol on Monday.

Bruton will need to pass a series of tests before being allowed back on the field. Through four games, the Notre Dame product sits second on the team in tackles and would be a tough loss if he can't play in Week 5, considering the Redskins are already down starting CB Bashaud Breeland (ankle) and FS DeAngelo Hall (knee).

Concussion - Injured Reserve
A.J. Francis
The Dolphins re-signed defensive tackle A.J. Francis on Saturday, according to the Palm Beach Post. Francis spent the 2014 season on injured reserve after having his left knee scoped following a preseason game against the Falcons.
Ty Nsekhe
The Redskins released 13 players Monday, according to The Baltimore Sun.

The players included Ricky Sapp, Austin Spitler, Jerry Rice Jr, Thomas Wolfe, Kenny Okoro, Ty Nsekhe, Gabe Miller, Rishaw Johnson, Kenneth Horsley, Isaako Aaitui, Steve Beauharnais, Braylon Bell and Edawn Coughman.

Spencer Long
Second-year guard Spencer Long is being slated as the Redskins' starting right guard this season, and as he prepares for the task, he notes there's a "night and day" difference in the way he feels from his rookie campaign, per ESPN.com. 

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."

Chest - Full Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 8 at Cincinnati
Nate Sudfeld
Sudfeld will start in Thursday's preseason finale against the Buccaneers.

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.

Junior Galette
Galette will have surgery to repair his torn right Achilles tendon, ruling him out for this season.

Galette's injury was revealed last week, but there remained a small hope that he may be able to avoid surgery and eventually play this year. However, upon since announcing his decision to undergo surgery, Galette can now be ruled out for the entire 2016 campaign, marking his second straight season lost due to an Achilles injury. With Galette sidelined once again, the Redskins will hope Preston Smith can build on his eight-sack rookie season and work with Trent Murphy at Washington's outside linebacker position opposite Ryan Kerrigan.

Achilles - Out for Week 8 at Cincinnati
John Sullivan
The Vikings placed center John Sullivan on short-term injured reserve Thursday due to a back injury. He is eligible to practice after six weeks and can play in game after eight weeks.

The team also announced Sullivan underwent a lumbar microdiscectomy Wednesday.

"As a player you never want to miss time," Sullivan said. "Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your absence, you feel guilty about not fulfilling your responsibility to your teammates, coaches, organization and fans by giving it your absolute best out on the field every Sunday. 

"While I'm incredibly disappointed that I'll be missing the first portion of the 2015 season, I have full faith in the roster that our coaches and front office have put together. Joe Berger will step in and do a great job leading our offensive line, protecting the best young quarterback in football and opening up holes in the running game.

"In the meantime, I promise I'll be doing everything I can to recover and I'll be ready as soon as humanly possible to return to the field and help the Vikings win their first Super Bowl Championship."

Vernon Davis
Davis (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

One of 10 Washington players listed as questionable, Davis logged limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, followed by a full session Friday. Davis figures to suit up for Sunday's game, but he may return to the No. 2 TE role, as Jordan Reed (concussion) also expects to play, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Groin - Full Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 8 at Cincinnati
Dustin Hopkins
Hopkins went two for two in field-goal attempts and three for three in extra-point attempts in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Eagles.

Hopkins bounced back after a rocky performance last week against the Ravens in which he missed both a field-goal and extra-point. Excluding the Ravens' game, the kicker has been perfect all season, look for him to keep up the play at Ford Field this Sunday against the Lions.

Kevin Bowen
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Quinton Dunbar
No Updates
Kedric Golston
Golston will be placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.

Golston suffered a hamstring injury on the first play of Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys and was forced to leave the game. After undergoing an MRI, he's officially been ruled out for the rest of the season. With Golston on the sidelines, look for Ziggy Hood to move into the starting lineup, while veteran Cullen Jenkins could be moved inside and also called upon for additional snaps

Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Josh Evans
Evans (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Lions.

Evans, a depth option at safety, signed on with the Redskins three weeks ago and played in each of the team's last two games. However, with no injury reported, he simply appears to be a healthy scratch.
