Apke appears next in line behind Montae Nicholson for the starting job at free safety, Ethan Cadeaux of NBC Sports Washington reports.
A 2018 fourth-round pick, Apke is a premier athlete (4.34 40) who lacks experience playing safety after starting out as a wide receiver during his time at Penn State. A hamstring injury limited him to two appearances last season, with each of his 22 snaps coming on special teams. Apke and Deshazor Everett likely will compete for the third safety role, which could lead to some playing time in nickel and dime packages.
Apke (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Apke has been placed on injured reserve due to a lingering hamstring injury, which the rookie fourth-round pick aggravated during Sunday's 20-13 win over the Giants. The 23-year-old will require an extended period of rest, and is not expected to recover until the latter portion of the 2018 regular season.
Apke (hamstring) is a candidate to be placed on injured reserve due to a lingering hamstring injury, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Apke has been unable to shake a hamstring injury sustained during Washington's first game of the regular season, and which he appears to have aggravated during the team's win over the Giants in Week 7. The rookie fourth-round pick has taken only 16 snaps this season, all of which have come on special teams. If Apke is indeed placed on injured reserve, his absence is unlikely to notably impact Washington's defense.
Apke is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Giants with a hamstring injury.
Apke had been sidelined since Week 1 with a hamstring injury prior to Sunday's setback, though his absence doesn't figure to have much of an impact on Washington's defense.
Apke (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
Apke hasn't been active since Week 1 against the Cardinals, though it finally seems the rookie out of Penn Sate has healed from his hamstring injury. If he's active Sunday versus the Giants, expect him to back up D.J. Swearinger at free safety.
Apke (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
The inactive status comes as little surprise considering Apke was listed as doubtful heading into Sunday. Apke is largely used as a special teams asset so his presence will be mostly missed in that department.
Apke (hamstring) is listed as doubtful going into Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys.
Apke didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday but got in a limited practice Friday. The rookie hasn't played since Week 1 against the Cardinals, so the defensive depth chart wouldn't change much if Apke doesn't play Sunday.
Apke (hamstring) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Saints, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Apke will miss his third straight week, as the rookie fourth-round pick hasn't played since the season opener. He was stuck in a special teams role, though, so his absence won't shake up the defensive dynamic.
Apke (hamstring) was officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers.
Apke will miss his second consecutive game with the hamstring injury that kept him out of practice this week. The Redskins starting defense should remain unaffected, but the team again will need to fill his role on special teams.
Apke (hamstring) will not play in Week 2 against the Colts, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Apke was able to finish out Week 1 despite the issue, but he's now set to miss Week 2 due to the same problem. He didn't see any snaps on defense Sunday, but his 16 special-teams plays will need to be replaced.
Apke injured his hamstring n Sunday's season opening victory over the Cardinals, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Apke was able to finish the contest but is currently described as "banged up." More details regarding his Week 2 status will come out as the week goes along. Deshazor Everett and Kenny Ladler would presumably see increased depth roles at safety should Apke ultimately not be able to suit up against the Colts.
