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.
Moreau produced nine tackles (seven solo) in Washington's 28-13 loss to the Eagles on Monday.
Moreau left Monday's game due to a knee injury, but was able to re-enter the contest and tie for the team-lead in tackles. Starting cornerback Quinton Dunbar was unable to play in the game due to a shin injury, so Moreau was the beneficiary. If Dunbar is unable to play in Week 14, Moreau could draw another start opposite fellow cornerback Josh Norman.
Moreau (knee) has returned to Monday's contest against the Eagles.
Moreau exited the contest due to a knee injury but has returned to the field and should resume his role starting across from Josh Norman.
Moreau suffered a knee injury and is questionable to return to Monday's game against the Eagles.
The Redskins have been battered with injuries during the contest, as they now have lost a starting cornerback for the time being. Danny Johnson will now take over opposite of Josh Norman after not playing a single defensive snap in either of the past two contests.
Moreau will start at cornerback in Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.
Moreau is drawing the start in place of Quinton Dunbar (shin). Moreau has seen extensive action for the Redskins this season despite not being one of the team's starting cornerbacks. He may see a slight uptick in snaps so long as Dunbar is sidelined.
