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.
Moreau (ankle) doesn't carry an injury designation going into Sunday's matchup against the Giants, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
The ankle injury that Moreau sustained last week against the Cowboys seemingly won't keep him off the field. Moreau logged limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, then practiced in full Friday. The UCLA product could even see more work Sunday if fellow corner Quinton Dunbar (shin) misses time.
Moreau is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys due to an ankle injury, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Moreau exited Sunday's game during the fourth quarter. Expect an update on the depth cornerback's health following the Week 7 contest.
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. He is expected to compete with both Quinton Dunbar and Danny Johnson for a spot working opposite of All-Pro Josh Norman in the secondary.
Moreau mostly worked as Josh Norman's backup at left cornerback during offseason practices, Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington reports.
A third-round pick last year, Moreau played only 59 defensive snaps as a rookie, but led the team in special teams snaps (340). With Norman locked in at left cornerback and Orlando Scandrick (back) expected to man the slot, Moreau could get a look on the right side if Quinton Dunbar struggles during training camp. The more likely scenario features Moreau opening his second NFL season as Washington's No. 4 corner.
