Quinn is on track to replace Jamison Crowder (Jets) in the slot, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. "Trey Quinn has taken over the inside slot role," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said during minicamp.
"He's confident, he's quick, he's got strong hands, he's physical, [and] he's tough."
Washington quarterback Case Keenum sounds similarly optimistic, noting that Quinn is "going to be really special." The 2018 seventh-round pick was held back by multiple ankle injuries his rookie season, catching nine of 10 targets for 75 yards and a touchdown in three games. Quinn doesn't seem to have much competition for the slot role, but he will have competition for short targets on a team with Jordan Reed at tight end and Chris Thompson in the backfield. Keenum will battle Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy (leg) for the starting quarterback job in what's expected to be a run-first offense.
Coach Jay Gruden confirmed that Quinn (ankle) is expected to replace Jamison Crowder in the slot, Kyle Stackpole of the team's official website reports. "Obviously losing Crowder hurts," Gruden said Tuesday. "But I'm ready to watch Trey Quinn jump in that slot role and dominate the position. I'm excited for him."
Selected with the final pick of the 2018 draft, Quinn earned a spot on Washington's Week 1 roster but immediately suffered a high ankle sprain. He returned in November to catch nine of 10 targets for 75 yards and a touchdown in two games before an aggravation of the ankle injury sent him to injured reserve. The 23-year-old seems to be healthy for the start of the offseason program, as he spent the past couple months doing football drills near his home in Louisiana. Quinn said his ankle feels great, but he also mentioned that his solid performance in two-and-a-half games last season doesn't make him a shoo-in to replace Crowder. While the current roster appears light on alternatives, Washington could still acquire some competition during the upcoming draft. The team figures to throw a lot of short passes in 2019 with either Case Keenum or Colt McCoy (leg) expected to get the Week 1 start.
Quinn (ankle) has an opportunity to earns snaps in the slot after former teammate Jamison Crowder joined the Jets, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official website reports.
Best known as Mr. Irrelevant from last year's draft, Quinn earned a spot on the Week 1 roster as a punt returner and reserve wide receiver. Ankle issues limited him to three appearances, highlighted by a two-week stretch in November with nine catches for 75 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets while filling in for an injured Crowder as the team's starting slot receiver. Quinn now has a good chance to take over the role on a full-time basis, though it's possible the outlook changes if Washington adds more talent to a weak receiving corps this offseason. The 23-year-old caught 114 passes his final collegiate season at SMU, and he has good size (6-foot, 203 pounds) and adequate speed (4.55 40) for a slot specialist. Quinn was placed on injured reserve in early December and should have plenty of time to make a full recovery before the start of the offseason program in mid-April.
The Redskins placed Quinnn (ankle) on injured reserve Wednesday.
The 2017 seventh-round pick thus finishes his rookie season with nine catches for 75 yards and a touchdown in three games. With Quinn no longer in the mix, Washington's top healthy wide receiver options are Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson and Maurice Harris.
Quinn (ankle) is inactive for Monday's contest at Philadelphia.
After suffering a high-ankle sprain in the regular-season opener, Quinn needed nine weeks on injured reserve to prove that he was ready to return. He proved effective out of the slot in the Redskins' last two games, accruing nine catches (on 10 targets) for 75 yards and one touchdown. Quinn may have endured a setback this past week, when he practiced in a limited capacity both Thursday and Friday before sitting out entirely Saturday. Moreover, he was spotted in a walking boot Sunday, so the Redskins appear to be taking a cautious approach with the rookie wide receiver. Expect Jamison Crowder (ankle) to handle the majority of the slot reps Week 13 and perhaps for the rest of the campaign.
Quinn (ankle) was spotted with a walking boot Sunday following the Redskins' team flight to Philadelphia, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
After logging back-to-back limited showings in practice to begin Week 12, Quinn was withheld from Saturday's entirely and was given a questionable tag heading into Monday's matchup with the Eagles. The fact that he was still donning a walking boot less than 48 hours before kickoff isn't the most reassuring sign of his health, but Washington will presumably wait and see how the rookie feels in a pregame workout before deciding on his status. If both Quinn and Jamison Crowder (ankle) are ultimately included on Washington's inactive list, Michael Floyd and/or Jehu Chesson could see increased reps in three-receiver sets alongside Josh Doctson and Maurice Harris.
Quinn (ankle) is questionable on the Redskins' preliminary injury report for Monday's game against the Eagles.
Quinn was a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday, but Saturday's participation remains unclear as the Redskins are practicing Saturday night. Heading into the last practice, there's been little to suggest the 22-year-old is in real danger of missing Monday's game. With that said, Jamison Crowder (ankle) is also questionable after missing the last seven games, and could very well cut into Quinn's snap share if able to return.
Quinn (ankle) remained a limited participant at practice Friday.
With Jamison Crowder (ankle) finally practicing and making progress, Quinn may soon find himself marginalized in the Washington passing game. For the time being, it seems likely Quinn will retain a role of some kind for Monday's game against the Eagles. There hasn't been anything to suggest the rookie is in serious danger of sitting out.
Quinn (ankle) was a limited in practice Thursday.
Quinn spent significant time on injured reserve this season due to a high-ankle sprain, so the limitation on his reps Thursday may stem from that injury. Alas, the rookie managed to participate in individual drills, which gives a positive spin for his Week 13 availability. In two games since he was activated from IR, Quinn has reeled in nine of his 10 targets for 75 yards and one touchdown. The Redskins reintroduced Jamison Crowder (ankle) to practice Thursday, but it's unclear when exactly he'll be given the all-clear to return. In a perfect world, both Crowder and Quinn operate out of the slot, so one or the other could be pushed elsewhere once the veteran is healthy enough to play.
Quinn caught all four of his targets for 49 yards and rushed once for no gain in Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Texans.
Quinn did an admirable job as Washington's slot receiver. The Redskins' passing game got even less appealing in this one with quarterback Alex Smith suffering a broken leg, so Quinn's value will probably be restricted to deeper formats against the Cowboys in Week 12 and beyond.
Quinn will be the Redskins' starting slot receiver for Sunday's game versus the Texans.
With Jamison Crowder (ankle) absent for a sixth consecutive contest, Quinn will draw the assignment in his first game since the regular-season opener. Snaps should be aplenty, but Quinn, a rookie, may not produce much against a Houston defense that has given up 7.3 YPT and six touchdowns to wide receivers in nine games this season.
Coach Jay Gruden said Quinn (ankle) would serve as the Redskins' punt returner if active for Sunday's game against the Texans, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
The Redskins' choice to activate Quinn from injured reserve Wednesday -- more than two weeks before the team needed to make a decision on his fate -- implies confidence from the team that he'll be available for his first game action since the season opener. Washington will still presumably make sure Quinn gets through Friday's practice without incident before declaring him ready to play, but the team has some added incentive to bring him back with fellow wideout Jamison Crowder (ankle) seemingly trending toward a sixth straight absence. If that's the case, Quinn could pick up some snaps out of the slot in addition to his duties in the return game. The rookie seventh-round pick will probably need to turn in a full and productive outing before garnering much attention in the fantasy realm.
The Redskins activated Quinn (ankle) from injured reserve Wednesday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
With just over a week of practice reps under his belt, Quinn must have sufficiently impressed the relevant parties in Washington to gain clearance so quickly. He returns to a battered receiving corps that features Paul Richardson (shoulder) on IR and has been without Jamison Crowder (ankle) since Week 5. A cloud hangs over Crowder, whose recent MRI revealed lingering issues with the ankle. If Crowder remains out Sunday versus the Texans, Quinn could make an immediate impact out of the slot after being listed as the primary backup to Crowder on the Redskins' Week 1 depth chart.
Quinn (ankle) participated in practice Thursday, opening the 21-day window for the Redskins to activate him from injured reserve, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Quinn was active during wide receiver drills, which marked his first practice reps since sustaining a high-ankle sprain in the regular-season opener. He can't be activated to the 53-man roster until Monday, at the earliest, meaning the rookie's first chance to play again is Sunday, Nov. 18 against the Texans. Whenever he returns, Quinn will attempt to fill in in a receiving corps that has been beset by injuries, with Jamison Crowder (ankle) absent the past four contests and Paul Richardson (shoulder), Robert Davis (knee) and Cam Sims (ankle) also on IR.
Coach Jay Gruden said the Redskins have yet to make a decision on Quinn's (ankle) expected return to practice, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. "We're not ready to say that yet," Gruden relayed Monday in relation to activating Quinn from IR. "We're close to saying that, but we'd like to get him out there on Wednesday to see where he's at before we start his clock."
Mr. Irrelevant of the 2018 NFL Draft lasted just eight offensive snaps before suffering a high-ankle sprain Week 1. In the meantime, Quinn has been embedded on injured reserve with an eye toward returning to the 53-man roster at some point. Once he practices, he'll open a 21-day window in which to be activated. Quinn will be welcomed back with open arms to a receiving corps with three other members on IR (Paul Richardson - core muscle, Cam Sims - ankle, Robert Davis - knee) and another out of commission since Week 5 (Jamison Crowder - ankle).
Quinn (ankle) could be cleared to resume practicing next week, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
The rookie seventh-round pick out of SMU appeared set to win a Week 1 roster spot with the Redskins before sustaining a high-ankle sprain in the preseason. Quinn ultimately needed surgery to address the injury, resulting in his placement on injured reserve prior to the opener. The wideout said Monday that he's progressing well from the procedure and expects to continue his rehab through this week before the Redskins determine if he's fit for practice. If Quinn does rejoin the team for practice, the Redskins would have to designate him as one of their two players eligible to return from IR. Since he'll have already missed the first eight weeks of the season, the Redskins could activate Quinn prior to their Nov. 4 game against the Falcons, though it's possible he'll need more time to get back in football shape after the long layoff. Once reinstated, Quinn could have an immediate role in a banged-up Washington wideout corps.
Quinn (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
The Redskins elected to shut Quinn down for at least the next eight weeks after he required surgery Wednesday to address a high-ankle sprain. Quinn, a rookie seventh-round pick, served as Washington's punt returner in the season-opening win over the Cardinals, but didn't see any involvement in the passing game. With Cam Sims (ankle) also heading to IR earlier this week, the Redskins are suddenly lacking in receiving depth behind starters Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson heading into Week 2.
Quinn suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Cardinals, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Quinn was the second Redskins wide receiver to exit Sunday's season opener with a high-ankle sprain, as Cam Sims was forced out in the first quarter. It appears as though Quinn is still undergoing some testing on the injury, so expect an update on his recovery timetable once tests have concluded.
Quinn will receive an MRI on his injured lower leg Monday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Quinn suffered what appeared to be a serious injury to his lower leg in Sunday's season opener. With Cam Sims (ankle) and Maurice Harris (concussion) hurt as well, the Redskins could be entering Week 2 with a very thin wide receiver corps.
Quinn was carted off the field against the Cardinals on Sunday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Quinn suffered what appeared to be a severe lower leg injury in Sunday's season opener. With Cam Sims (ankle) also sidelined, Washington is left with Jamison Crower, Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson at the wideout position. Expect an update on Quinn's injury after the contest.
