  • Falcons' Fabian Moreau: Removed from injury report Friday

    Moreau (hamstring) doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's contest against the Panthers, Scott Bair of the Falcons' official site reports. Moreau progressed from a non-participant during Wednesday's practice to a full participant Friday. The 27-year-old cornerback has been on the field for at least 88 percent of the Falcons' defensive snaps in six of the last seven games, so he should play a key role in trying to slow down Cam Newton and the Panthers.

  • Redskins' Fabian Moreau: Pegged for starting gig

    Moreau (hamstring) is expected to serve as one of Washington's starting outside cornerbacks in 2020, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports. Moreau started seven of his 12 appearances with Washington in 2019 despite battling knee, stinger and hamstring injuries throughout the season. Now healthy, the 2017 third-round pick could be the favorite to win the No. 2 gig opposite Kendall Fuller in training camp, though he'll face competition from newcomer Ronald Darby. The 26-year-old Moreau handled full 16-game slates during his first two years in the league.

If Moreau can't suit up for Sunday's contest, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Jimmy Moreland could each see extra reps in Washington's secondary.

  • Redskins' Fabian Moreau: Sporting protective cast

    Moreau (ankle) is wearing a protective cast on his foot/ankle and will be re-evaluated in a few days, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Moreau suffered the ankle sprain last weekend and remains without a timetable for his return.

  • Redskins' Fabian Moreau: May miss regular-season action

    Moreau's ankle sprain could cause him to mixx multiple regular-season games, Ben Standig of The Atheletic reports. Moreau's ankle issue looks to be more severe than it initially appeared and it could cost the Redskins some depth in their secondary. Either rookie Jimmy Moreland or veteran Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie would likely fill the void as the starting slot corner while Moreau is sidelined.

  • Redskins' Fabian Moreau: Shows improvement during offseason

    Coach Jay Gruden mentioned Moreau as one of Washington's most improved players during the offseason program, Andrew Breitfelder of the team's official website reports. Moreau spent most of his time in the slot last season, piling up 58 tackles (37 solo), five passes defended, three forced fumbles and an interception on 839 defensive snaps in 16 games. He occupied an every-down role toward the end of the season, but he'll likely slide back to the nickel job with Quinton Dunbar (shin) expected to return healthy for training camp. Josh Norman remains the safest bet for IDP production among Washington cornerbacks, though he's never topped 67 tackles in a season, instead relying on interceptions and forced fumbles to keep his stat line afloat.

  • Redskins' Fabian Moreau: Spends season in slot

    Moreau made 10 starts in 16 appearances during the 2018 campaign, piling up 58 tackles (37 solo), three forced fumbles and an interception. Moreau spent most of his year guarding the slot, eventually getting some looks outside after fellow cornerback Quinton Dunbar suffered nerve damage in his shin. It won't come as any surprise if the Redskins actively seek an upgrade in the slot for 2019 after struggling to defend the middle of the field in 2018. Moreau is a recent third-round pick (2017) who has shown some ball skills, but his work in coverage leaves a lot to be desired.

  • Redskins' Fabian Moreau: Taking first-team reps

    Moreau is practicing with the first team after the Redskins released Orlando Scandrick on Tuesday, Matthew Paras of The Washington Times reports. While nothing is set in stone for the start of the regular season, the waiving of Scandrick has clearly opened up an opportunity for Moreau to earn a starting job in camp. For now, however, Moreau seems to be on track to take on the slot cornerback role in the Redskins' secondary.
