Lanier picked up two sacks in Sunday's 20-15 victory over the Cardinals.
Lanier also recorded an impressive three passes defended in the contest. The 24-year-old defensive end now has logged five sacks in as many games. He did all his damage in just 54 snaps (64.0 percent).
Lanier (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Lanier was limited in practices for the second consecutive week, but it shouldn't affect his abilities Thursday night. Regardless, he's still only deployed for around 30 defensive snaps per game, so he's not a consistent fantasy threat.
Lanier (knee) is active for Sunday's game against New Orleans.
Lanier was limited in practice throughout the week but isn't expected to be limited much Sunday. The return of Matthew Ioannidis (hand) gives the Redskins some added defensive line depth and could result in a slight snap reduction for Lanier.
Lanier is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints with a knee injury.
Lanier was a limited participant in practice this week after playing 22 of 61 defensive snaps in last week's loss to the Vikings. Lanier and Matthew Ioannidis (hand) are both listed as questionable, which could leave Washington's defensive line short on depth if both are unable to play.
Lanier (lower leg) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.
Lanier dealt with a lower leg injury throughout camp, but appears to be in full health entering Week 1. He projects to provide depth at defensive end to start the year.
