Position Listing
Vinston Painter
News
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.

Phillip Taylor
News
Taylor signed a reserve/future contract with the Redskins on Friday, The Washington Post reports.

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.

Preston Smith
News
Smith (groin) will play in Sunday's game against the Eagles.

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.

Bashaud Breeland
News
Breeland (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

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.

Jamison Crowder
News
Crowder should see his role expand following the departures of Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson, ESPN.com reports.

Even if Washington ends up signing Terrelle Pryor -- who is visiting with the team Friday -- there's clearly room for Crowder to take on a larger role in a receiving corps that just lost a pair of proven contributors. Crowder did excellent work with his 97 targets last season, catching 67 passes for 847 yards and seven scores. Given his efficient production, in combination with Washington's offseason moves, Crowder has a good shot to see triple-digit targets in his third NFL season. He's already proven to be one of the better slot receivers in the league.

Terrelle Pryor
News
Pryor (finger) said he plans to work with Kirk Cousins prior to the start of team activities, The Washington Post reports.

Although he was glad to hear the Redskins intend to retain their quarterback, Pryor stopped shy of saying that his new team made him any kind of promise. All signs point to Cousins playing at least one more year in Washington, but it's still possible the team would consider dealing him if it's blown away by a trade offer. Such a development would be bad news for Pryor, who is set to join slot standout Jamison Crowder and 2015 first-round selection Josh Doctson (Achilles) in a new-look, high-upside Washington receiving corps that lost DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in free agency. Pryor is the early favorite to serve as the new No. 1 wideout, though he should have plenty of competition for targets in an offense that also features the potent tight end duo of Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis. On the injury front, it appears Pryor, Doctson and Reed will all be available for the start of OTAs in mid-to-late April. Pryor surprisingly opted for a one-year, $8 million contract, betting on himself to earn his way to a big multi-year deal next offseason.

Injury
Finger - Questionable for the start of training camp
Duke Ihenacho
News
Ihenacho (concussion) will play Sunday against the Vikings.

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.

Earl Wolff
News
Wolff signed a reserve/future contract with the Redskins Thursday, John Keim of ESPN reports.

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.

Mason Foster
News
Foster recorded 17 tackles and one pass deflection in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

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.

Matt Jones
News
Although he feels good about Rob Kelley serving as the team's lead back, Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said he hasn't given up on Jones, the team's official website reports. "Nobody's given up on Matt Jones," said Gruden. "He's got a long life ahead of him in the NFL, see how it goes."

Jones entered 2016 as the team's lead back, but he was a healthy scratch by the end of the season, unable to regain his standing after dealing with a knee injury, poor ball security and general ineffectiveness. Rob Kelley (knee) currents projects as the starter in 2017, with Chris Thompson handling most of the work on passing downs. However, Jones could work his way back into the mix with a strong showing in training camp and the preseason -- or else in the event of an injury to Kelley. The team may also take a long look at running backs in the opening rounds of the upcoming draft, as Kelley was solid but unspectacular down the stretch last season. 2016 seventh-round selection Keith Marshall (elbow) could also be in the mix, offering raw athleticism that's unmatched by the team's other runners.

Josh Norman
News
Norman recorded five tackles (four solo), four pass deflections, and two interceptions in Saturday's win over the Bears.

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.

Trent Williams
News
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.

Greg Toler
News
Toler suffered a concussion in Monday's loss to the Panthers, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

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.

Arie Kouandjio

Keith Marshall
News
Marshall (elbow) said he is healthy and ready to compete for a roster spot, the Redskins' official website reports

A top recruit whose college career was marred by knee injuries, Marshall pushed his way into the sixth round of last year's draft after leading all running backs at the NFL Scouting Combine in both the 40-yard dash (4.31) and bench press (25 rep). He seemingly had a shot to earn a role in a shaky Washington backfield before he suffered a season-ending elbow injury in the team's third preseason game. Undrafted rookie Robert Kelly eventually seized the lead job from Matt Jones, with Chris Thompson doing his usual strong work on passing downs. Marshall will thus be left to compete with Jones, Mack Brown and at least one rookie for what likely will be one or two roster spots. Depending on what the Redskins do in the upcoming draft, Marshall could find himself on the outside looking in, though his freakish athleticism would seemingly at least make him a good candidate for the practice squad.

Terrell McClain
News
McClain agreed to a four-year deal with the Redskins on Thursday, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

McClain's deal will draw him out of Dallas and reportedly will be worth more than $21 million over the course of its four years. The defensive tackle led the Cowboys' defensive line in tackles with 41 in 2016, and also added 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and eight quarterback pressures. He should provide a significant boost for a Redskins' front seven that surrendered 119.8 rushing yards per game last season, good for 24th in the league.

Jordan Reed
News
Head coach Jay Gruden said the Washington offense will run through Reed, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

With 1,000-yard receivers Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson both departing in free agency, Reed is the obvious choice to serve as Kirk Cousins' top target, which he arguably already was at times last season. Washington did sign wide receiver Terrelle Pryor to join slot standout Jamison Crowder and 2016 first-rounder Josh Doctson, but Reed is still the best bet to lead the team in targets -- at least on a per-game basis. The 26-year-old tight end has always been limited by health more than anything else, playing 14 or fewer games in each of his four professional seasons. He's averaging 5.9 catches, 7.7 targets and 63 receiving yards per game since Kirk Cousins took over as the team's unquestioned No. 1 quarterback heading into the 2015 season. If not for injuries, Reed would already have at least one 1,000-yard season to his name. He dealt with a shoulder injury late last year, but there's been nothing to suggest that it's lingered into the offseason.

Tharold Simon
News
Simon signed a futures contract with the Redskins on Monday, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

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.

Su'a Cravens
News
Cravens will spend his offseason adjusting to his new role at safety for the Redskins, JP Finlay of CSNMidAtlantic.com reports.

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.

Matt Hazel
News
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.

Zach Vigil
News
Vigil was claimed off waivers by the Redskins on Tuesday, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Vigil will join Washington just one day after being waived by Miami. He'll provide linebacker depth and special teams help. Vigil has two tackles in seven games played this season.

DeAngelo Hall
News
Hall (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.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Donte Whitner
News
Whitner (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.

Injury
Quadriceps - Questionable for the start of training camp
D.J. Swearinger
News
Swearinger signed a three-year, $13.5 million contract with the Redskins on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Swearinger will be joining his fourth team in the past five years. He had 66 tackles, including 2.0 sacks, and eight passes defensed, including three interceptions, while playing with the Cardinals last season. He'll likely be a primary backup at safety behind Su'a Cravens and DeAngelo Hall in 2017.

Houston Bates
News
Bates (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.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Steven Daniels
News
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.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ryan Kerrigan
News
Kerrigan (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.

Injury
Elbow - Questionable for the start of training camp
Chris Carter
News
Carter signed with the Redskins on Thursday.

A 2011 fifth-round selection, Carter has bounced around the league as a special teams contributor and depth linebacker, recording 26 tackles in 62 regular-season games. He'll likely be buried on the defensive depth chart in Washington, with special teams once again representing his best chance to contribute.

Khairi Fortt
News
Defensive end Andre Branch (groin) and linebacker Khairi Fortt (hamstring) are the lone Jaguars ruled out for the Thursday game against the Titans.

Among the questionables are defensive end Ryan Davis (hip), defensive tackle Roy Miller (knee), safety Josh Evans (foot) and wideout Tommy Streeter (abdomen).

Defensive end Chris Clemons (knee) and wide receiver Marqise Lee (elbow) are probable.

Isaiah Williams
No Updates
Deshazor Everett
News
The Redskins signed former Seahawks tightend Anthony McCoy and waived cornerback DeShazor Everett on Monday, according to the Washington Post.
Tress Way
News
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
News
Scherff (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's tilt against the Eagles.

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.

Shakiel Randolph
No Updates
Ziggy Hood
News
Hood re-signed with the Redskins on Wednesday.

After signing a one-year deal with the Redskins in the spring of 2016, Hood appeared in all 16 games this past season, starting in 14 and cranking out 33 tackles and three passes defensed. With the release of incumbent starter Ricky Jean-Francois, he could be in the mix for starting duties ahead of the 2017 campaign.

Martrell Spaight
News
Spaight (shoulder) was active for Sunday's 19-10 loss to the Giants.

Spaight continued to play through a nagging shoulder injury and will now have plenty of time to recovery considering the Redskins' needed a victory over the Giants on Sunday in order to advance to the postseason.

Colt McCoy
News
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
News
Doctson (Achilles) hopes to be up to full speed by training camp, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports. Head coach Jay Gruden said, "We took it slow and I think he's in a good place mentally and that's half the battle. We'll continue to gradually build him through OTAs and the mandatory camp so hopefully we'll get him to full speed in training camp and go from there."

Doctson hinted at his recovery last week when he tweeted he was feeling 100%, which is great news considering the first-round pick only played in two games last season. He'll compete with Brian Quick, Maurice Harris and others for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart this season. Look for more updates on his recovery once training camp rolls around.

Injury
Achilles - Questionable for the start of training camp
Nick Sundberg
News
Sundberg (back) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Brian McNally of 106.7 The Fan reports.

Sundberg has missed the Redskins' last two games, but looks primed to return in Week 13 against the Cardinals.

Cullen Jenkins
News
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.

Stacy McGee
News
McGee signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the Redskins on Thursday, MIke Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

McGee had a career high 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles while playing in just nine games with Oakland last season. He'll slot in at nose tackle alongside Phil Taylor in Washington.

Niles Paul
News
Paul (shoulder) feels 100 percent healthy again and is expected to participate in the Redskins' offseason practices, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.

Paul is four months removed from having surgery to repair a torn labrum and dislocated left shoulder. While he still hasn't been cleared as a precaution, the 27-year-old says he's feeling fully healthy and should be ready for offseason practice sessions. After totaling career highs of 39 catches for 507 yards in 2014, Paul has played merely eight games since then due to injuries.

Derek Carrier
News
Carrier (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup in Philadelphia.

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.

Morgan Moses
News
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
News
Grant hauled in three receptions for 25 yards in Saturday's win over the Bears.

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.

Kendall Fuller
News
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
News
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.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Dashaun Phillips
News
Phillips was promoted to the Redskins' active roster Thursday, The Washington Post reports.

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.

Shawn Lauvao
News
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
News
Blackmon (concussion) is active for Monday's game against Carolina.

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.

Brian Quick
News
Quick has agreed to terms on a contract with the Redskins, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Selected 33rd overall in the 2012 draft, Quick finally started living up to the Rams' expectations early in the 2014 campaign, only to suffer a severe shoulder injury after seven games. He struggled to bounce back from the injury and caught just 10 passes the following year, but he did re-emerge as a modest contributor last season, hauling in 41 of 79 targets for 564 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games. While Jamison Crowder and fellow free-agent signing Terrelle Pryor are locked in as key pieces in the Washington offense, Quick could get a chance to push 2016 first-rounder Josh Doctson (Achilles) for a spot in three-wide sets. The Redskins hope Doctson will bounce back from a lost rookie season and earn a leading role, but the 27-year-old Quick provides some form of insurance if that doesn't happen. The most likely scenario has Quick serving as the No. 4 wideout, providing an occasional big-play threat on limited snaps.

Rob Kelley
News
Despite saying that he loves Kelley (knee) and thinks he's a great player, Redskins head coach Jay Gruden acknowledged that the upcoming draft has some special running backs that will be difficult to pass up, Rich Tandler of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Kelley was a pleasant surprise for Washington as an undrafted rookie, taking 168 carries for 704 yards (4.2 YPC) and notching six touchdowns, with the vast majority of that production coming in the final nine games while he served as the lead back. Although the Redskins might be content going to battle with a backfield comprised of Kelley and pass-catching specialist Chris Thompson, the team could be tempted by the prospect of acquiring a more explosive runner during the first few rounds of the draft. Kelley displayed good power, vision and instincts as a rookie, but he doesn't possess the speed, agility and explosiveness that most teams desire from a lead runner. He also didn't contribute much as a receiver, catching 12 of 18 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown. Kelley sits atop the depth chart heading into the draft, but it's quite possible he'll ultimately have to battle a rookie for the starting gig. His minor offseason knee surgery doesn't seem to be a concern.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Chris Thompson
News
Thompson re-signed with the Redskins on Friday.

Thompson remains in Washington after receiving a second-round tender offer from the Redskins as a restricted free agent earlier this offseason. Last year, the 2013 fifth-round selection posted career highs across the board, accumulating 356 rushing yards on 68 attempts and catching 49 passes for 349 yards while totaling five touchdowns. With an average of 5.5 yards per carry since entering the league, and at least 35 catches in back-to-back seasons, Thompson is a great third-down option out of the Redskins backfield, where Rob Kelley and Matt Jones represent his biggest competitors for touches right now.

Joey Mbu
News
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
News
Brown worked out with Bills running back LeSean McCoy this offseason, focusing on his balance and cuts in addition to his conditioning, Stephen Czarda of Redskins.com reports.

Brown said he gained about eight pounds of muscle while also losing some bad weight, leaving him at 217 pounds with only six percent body fat. He hopes the improvement will help him earn a spot on the Week 1 roster -- something he failed to do last season when he spent most of September and October on the practice squad. Brown did join the active roster for nine games, but he only took eight carries for 82 yards and a touchdown, with all of that work coming in Week 16. While the impressive cameo and his improved physique should help his cause, Brown likely will find himself battling for one of the final roster spots behind fellow running backs Robert Kelley and Chris Thompson. The competition will include Matt Jones, Keith Marshall and possibly a selection from the upcoming draft.

Wes Saxton
News
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
News
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
News
Harris recorded one reception for 15 yards in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

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.

Kirk Cousins
News
Cousins and the Redskins remain far apart on long-term contract negotiations, ESPN.com's John Keim reports.

Cousins suggested he's fine with playing under his franchise-tag salary of $23.94 million if the alternative is accepting a contract that the Redskins can get out of after a couple seasons. The team did offer him a five-year deal worth approximately $20 million per year, but the offer was so far from what he's seeking that Cousins' side didn't even bother countering. Depending on how much of the deal is guaranteed and when those guarantees kick in, Cousins might be amenable to a contract with an average annual value that's only slightly above $20 million. The two sides have until July 15 to reach an agreement, but even if nothing gets worked out by that time, both Cousins and the Redskins have repeatedly stated he'll be with the team for at least one more season. The team probably won't even listen to a trade offer unless it includes multiple early-round picks.

Trent Murphy
News
Murphy is officially suspended for the first four games of the 2017 regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances.

Murphy is still eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games. However, with Junior Galette (Achilles) facing legal troubles and at risk of also missing games at the beginning of the season, the Redskins could enter the 2017 campaign with very little depth at outside linebacker depending on what they do in the upcoming draft.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 of the 2017 season

Rufus Johnson
News
Three injured players have been placed on the inactive list by the Patriots for their season opener Thursday night against Pittsburgh. They are running back Travaris Cadet (hamstring), defensive lineman Trey Flowers (knee) and safety Tavon Wilson (quad).

The healthy inactives are offensive lineman Ryan Wendell, defensive lineman Khyri Thornton, linebacker Rufus Johnson and cornerback Justin Coleman.

Will Compton
News
Compton (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 signing Zach Brown for a starting inside linebacker position this term.

Injury
Knee - PCL - Questionable for the start of training camp
A.J. Francis
News
Francis was released by the Redskins on Saturday, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

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.

Ty Nsekhe
News
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.

Anthony Lanier
News
Lanier (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.

Injury
Lower Leg - Questionable for the start of training camp

Spencer Long
News
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."

Nate Sudfeld
News
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
News
Galette (Achilles) was arrested Friday night on accusations of disorderly conduct and failure to comply with police orders, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

Galette was arrested following an altercation at the MGM Park minor-league baseball stadium in Biloxi, Mississippi. It's unclear at this point in time if he'll face discipline from either the league or the Redskins.

Injury
Achilles - Questionable for the start of training camp
John Sullivan
News
Sullivan signed a contract with the Rams on Wednesday.

Following a successful eight-year run with the Vikings, Sullivan latched on with the Redskins in 2016, making one start. He has familiarity with new Rams coach Sean McVay through their time together in Washington, and Sullivan could have a legitimate chance to claim a starting role for Los Angeles after the team released Tim Barnes prior to free agency.

Zach Brown
News
Brown will sign a contract with the Redskins on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Brown was one of the best free agent players remaining on the market. He had 149 tackles, including 4.0 sacks, and four passes defensed with the Bills last season. With the Redskins he'll compete with Mason Foster and Will Compton for one of the two starting inside linebacker positions.

Kendal Thompson
No Updates
Vernon Davis
News
Davis has signed a three-year deal to remain with Washington, ESPN.com reports.

In his first season with Washington, the 33-year-old played in 16 games, logging 44 receptions (on 59 targets) for 583 yards and two TDs. In the process, he helped give the Washington offense a potent one-two punch at tight end along with Jordan Reed, who turned in a 66/686/6 stat line in 12 contests. This coming season, Davis profiles as a depth fantasy option, though his value would see an uptick in the event of an injury to Reed. While the re-signing of Davis solidifies the team's TE corps, the status of QB Kirk Cousins remains somewhat unsettled, while top wideouts Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson could potentially depart via free agency.

Dustin Hopkins
News
Hopkins went 1-for-2 in field goal attempts and 1-for-1 in extra point attempts in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

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.

Quinton Dunbar
News
Dunbar (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.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kedric Golston
News
Golston (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.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
Josh Evans
News
Evans was signed to the Redskins active roster Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

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.
