Nicholson has already missed four games with the concussion and recently endured a setback in his recovery, so it makes sense for the Redskins to shutter him for the final two games of the season. He'll wrap up his rookie campaign with 24 tackles and an interception across eight games. Nicholson's absence should lock Deshazor Everett into a starting role the rest of the way.
Nicholson (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
The rookie fourth-round pick will miss his fourth consecutive game and his sixth of the season. Nicholson suffered a setback in his recovery from the concussion ahead of the Redskins' Week 14 game against the Chargers, and it seems there hasn't been much progress since then.
Nicholson hasn't cleared the league's concussion protocol and has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Nicholson suffered a setback in his recovery and failed to practice in any capacity this week. The rookie fourth-round pick hasn't played a full game since Week 7 against the Cowboys, allowing Deshazor Everett to see extended action at strong safety.
It sounded like the Redskins initially expected Nicholson to take part in Wednesday's session in some capacity after the head injury sidelined him for the team's last two contests. Unfortunately for the rookie, it appears he's still experiencing concussion-like symptoms, which will again threaten his availability for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Any further absences from Nicholson would translate to more playing time for Deshazor Everett, who has recorded 13 tackles over the past two contests.
Nicholson has yet to clear concussion protocol and will now miss his second consecutive game. Deshazor Everett, who totaled seven tackles while filling in for Nicholson in last week's win over the Giants, is expected to earn another start.
