  • Commanders' Jahan Dotson: Sitting out another practice

    Dotson (hamstring) isn't taking part in practice Thursday and is instead working out off to the side with a trainer, Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Washington likely won't formally rule on Dotson's status for Sunday's game against the Titans until after Friday's practice, but head coach Ron Rivera already said the rookie wideout could miss "a week or two" due to the hamstring injury he sustained in the Week 4 loss to the Cowboys. Meanwhile, Curtis Samuel (illness) was away from practice for the second day in a row, potentially leaving Washington's receiving corps down two key members this weekend. If both Dotson and Samuel aren't available, Dyami Brown would likely be first in line among Washington's depth wideouts to see added snaps alongside No. 1 receiver Terry McLaurin.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Still missing from practice

    Samuel (illness) was absent from the Commanders' practice Thursday, Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Samuel remained home for the second day in a row while he continues to recover from an unspecified ailment. The Commanders will hope that Samuel makes enough progress overnight to return to the field in some capacity Friday, but for the time being, his availability for Sunday's game against the Titans looks to be in flux. Washington is already expected to be down one of its starting wideouts this weekend in rookie Jahan Dotson (hamstring), who was working off to the side at practice Thursday for the second day in a row.

  • Commanders' Trai Turner: Cleared from injury report

    Turner (quadriceps) was absent from the Commanders' injury report Wednesday.

    Turner's clearance comes as a bit of a surprise after John Keim of reported Monday that head coach Ron Rivera felt they had rushed him back, and he needed to continue strengthening his leg. Assuming the 29-year-old does return Sunday against the Titans, he'll be operating as a reserve behind Saahdiq Charles at right guard.

  • Commanders' Jahan Dotson: Not practicing

    Dotson (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    The Commanders haven't ruled Dotson out for Sunday's game against the Titans, but it isn't a great sign that head coach Ron Rivera said the receiver might miss a week or two. While his 22 targets rank only fourth on the team, Dotson's 12 catches include four touchdowns and two gains of more than 30 yards, giving Carson Wentz a second big-play threat alongside Terry McLaurin. The problem right now for Washington is poor quarterback play and blocking, with the latter partially due to injury concerns that may carry over to Week 5. The Commanders had 2021 third-round pick Dyami Brown fill in after Dotson's departure last week, but they could also turn to Cam Sims if the rookie first-round pick is indeed out this Sunday.

  • Commanders' Dyami Brown: Draws season-high four targets

    Brown corralled one of his four targets for a six-yard reception in Sunday's 25-10 loss to the Cowboys.

    The reception and the targets were the first of the season for Brown, who hadn't drawn a look in the passing game while playing 16 snaps on offense in Washington's first three games. He was still on the field for less than 30 percent of the time in Week 4, but Brown could see his playing time pick up Week 5 against the Titans. The Commanders are unlikely to have rookie wideout Jahan Dotson (hamstring) available for that contest and could turn to Brown to serve as his primary replacement.

  • Commanders' Cam Sims: Playing limited snaps

    Sims didn't draw a target while playing four snaps on offense in Sunday's 25-10 loss to Dallas.

    Sims has drawn single-digit snaps in each of Washington's first four games and has thus far been held without a catch on three targets. His playing-time outlook could improve Week 5 against the Titans, as rookie wideout Jahan Dotson (hamstring) is unlikely to be available.

  • Commanders' Curtis Samuel: Dealing with illness

    Samuel isn't practicing Wednesday due to an illness, Matthew Paras of The Washington Times reports.

    Samuel has two more chances to return to practice ahead of Sunday's contest against Tennessee, so it's too early to have any serious concern about his Week 5 status. With Jahan Dotson (hamstring) looking likely to sit out Sunday, Washington can scarce afford to have a versatile wideout of Samuel's caliber sidelined this weekend.

  • Commanders' Brian Robinson: Returning to practice

    The Commanders designated Robinson (knee) for return to practice Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Washington will now have a 21-day window to evaluate Robinson in practice, but head coach Ron Rivera has already expressed optimism about the rookie's chances of making his NFL debut Sunday versus Tennessee. Before he sustained gunshot wounds to his right leg and required surgery after he was the victim of an apparent attempted robbery Aug. 28, Robinson appeared positioned to begin the season as the Commanders' lead option on the ground. If he's active this week, Robinson might handle only a light role behind Antonio Gibson and pass-catching specialist J.D. McKissic, but the 23-year-old should see his opportunities increase in the games to come.

  • Commanders' Jonathan Williams: Makes most of six snaps

    Williams rushed five times for 48 yards in Sunday's 25-10 loss to the Cowboys.

    Williams operated as the Commander's No. 3 running back in the contest, playing just six of 74 offensive snaps. Through the first four weeks of the season, the 28-year-old veteran has recorded 54 yards on six rushing attempts. Williams will remain far off the fantasy radar in Week 5 when the Commanders host the Titans.

  • Commanders' Samuel Cosmi: Getting thumb surgery

    Cosmi is scheduled to undergo surgery Wednesday on his injured right thumb and is without a timeline for a return, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Cosmi suffered the injury in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. Though Washington isn't expected to provide a timeline for Cosmi until his surgery is completed, he may have a tough time gaining clearance for the team's Week 5 matchup with the Titans. If Cosmi is unable to play, Cornelius Lucas will likely draw the start at right tackle.

  • Commanders' Chase Roullier: Undergoes knee surgery

    Roullier (knee) underwent knee surgery Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    Roullier is already on IR, but the decision to undergo knee surgery likely ends his 2022 season. That said, Fowler notes that Roullier and Washington could revisit options later this year. The Commanders also have Wes Schweitzer (concussion) on IR, while Tyler Larsen (Achilles) is on the physically unable to perform list but expected to be activated Week 5.
