Montae Nicholson: Cut loose by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (neck) was waived by the Redskins on Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The team signed Sean Davis at the beginning of free agency, signaling that Nicholson had become expendable. Nicholson appeared in 13 games in 2019, racking up 45 tackles and two interceptions before ending the year on IR with a neck injury.

Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins placed Nicholson (neck) on injured reserve Friday, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan Washington reports.

Nicholson's season comes to an end due to a neck injury sustained Week 16. He compiled 62 tackles (45 solo), four defended passes, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries in 13 contests. In a corresponding move, Washington has signed Kenny Ladler to the active roster.

Redskins' Montae Nicholson: No practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (neck) did not practice Thursday.

Nicholson hasn't practiced in any capacity since suffering a neck injury Week 16 against the Giants. He'll have one more chance to upgrade his level of activity in advance of Sunday's contest in Dallas.

Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Picks up injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (neck) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Giants, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

It's unclear how Nicholson picked up the injury, but he was forced to leave during the overtime period, suggesting his return may be a long shot. As long as he's sidelined, however, Troy Apke would be in line to see the bulk of free safety snaps.

Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Clear for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Nicholson worked as a limited participant to begin the week but progressed to full practice participation Friday. The 24-year-old should work in his usual every-down role in Sunday's matchup.

December 18, 2019 05:48 PM
Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Still managing ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

Nicholson entered Sunday's loss to the Eagles with the ankle issue, but he started and played every defensive snap. The 24-year-old should be able to avoid an injury designation for Week 16 if he can practice fully in the next couple days.

Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Nicholson will start at free safety for this divisional contest. Despite his every-down role, Nicholson only has 21 tackles over the last six games, so his IDP value is negligible.

December 13, 2019 04:20 PM
Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Nursing ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson has an ankle injury and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

The 24-year-old was a late addition to the injury report as a limited participant Friday, putting his availability for Week 15 in doubt. Troy Apke figures to step in at free safety should Nicholson be unable to play Sunday.

November 21, 2019 04:56 PM
Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Practices in full Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

This represents an upgrade for Nicholson after he was merely limited Wednesday. He'll be at his usual free safety spot on Sunday against Detroit.

November 20, 2019 06:00 PM
Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Back on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Nicholson was limited during two practices last week and sat out completely for one, but the third-year safety still managed to play 69 of 70 defensive snaps in Week 11's loss to the Jets. It's worth keeping an eye on his practice workload as the week progresses, but Nicholson doesn't appear to be in danger of missing Sunday's matchup against the Lions.

Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Will suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Nicholson will avoid missing his third straight game, overcoming a non-participation at Thursday's practice. Look for him to start at free safety with Troy Apke backing him up.

Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Questionable Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Nicholson sat out Thursday's practice but returned as a limited participant Friday to maintain a chance of suiting up Sunday. Troy Apke will continue to fill in at safety should Nicholson be unable to play Week 11.

November 14, 2019 05:08 PM
Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Misses practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

Nicholson's absence from practice does not bode well for his chances of playing in Week 11. If the 23-year-old isn't able to return Friday, Troy Apke would continue to fill in at safety.

November 13, 2019 06:16 PM
Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Ankle injury lingers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Nicholson has missed the last three games due to a lingering ankle issue, and he hasn't yet managed to return to full health despite coming off Washington's bye. That the starting safety practiced in at least a limited capacity nonetheless represents some progress. If he's able to ramp up his practice reps as the week continues, Nicholson could have a shot at retaking the field Sunday versus the Jets.

Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Buffalo, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Nicholson will miss his third straight game with the ankle injury after not practicing this week. Troy Apke should continue to start at free safety for the Redskins.

October 30, 2019 07:36 PM
Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Held out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (ankle) didn't participate at Wednesday's practice.

Nicholson was inactive for Sunday's loss to the Vikings and will need to return to practice in the next couple days to avoid missing Week 9. Troy Apke should continue to work at free safety while he's sidelined.

Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Inactive for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (ankle) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Vikings, Andrew Groover of NFL Network reports.

Nicholson didn't practice in any capacity this week, so his lack of availability doesn't come as much of a surprise. Troy Apke is primed to draw the start at free safety versus Minnesota in Nicholson's absence.

October 24, 2019 11:28 AM
Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Questionable for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Vikings.

Nicholson was unable to practice all week after suffering an ankle injury in this past Sunday's loss to the 49ers, so he appears to be an unlikely questionable. Nicholson is an every-down player when he's healthy, so Troy Apke figures to start at free safety if he's ruled inactive 90 minutes before Thursday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff.

Redskins' Montae Nicholson: DNP on practice estimate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson (ankle) was estimated to be a non-participant on Monday's injury report, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

The 23-year-old sustained the ankle injury during Sunday's loss to the 49ers and was unable to return, so it's no surprise he wouldn't have been able to practice one day later. Troy Apke should see increased playing time if Nicholson is unable to recover in time for Thursday's game at Minnesota.

October 20, 2019 03:04 PM
Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Suffers ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicholson exited Sunday's game against the 49ers with an ankle injury, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Nicholson left during the first half and won't be able to return, per Copeland. Troy Apke should see work at safety for the Redskins in the meantime.
