  • Football Team's Cam Sims: Did not practice Wednesday

    Sims (hamstring) missed Washington's practice Wednesday.

    Sims injured his hamstring in Washington's Week 4 win over the Falcons and he has yet to play since then. After logging another missed practice Wednesday, the wideout's chances to play Sunday against the Packers are dropping. Expect DeAndre Carter and possibly Dax Milne to see snaps Sunday if Sims can't suit up.

  • Football Team's Dyami Brown: Limited participant in practice

    Brown (knee) was limited in Washington's practice Wednesday.

    Brown has been dealing with an aggravated knee injury since Week 5 when he was unable to suit up against the Saints. The receiver was limited and listed as questionable leading up to Week 6, but he managed to play against the Chiefs. Expect Brown to be able to play in Week 7 barring any setbacks.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Dealing with quad injury

    Seals-Jones missed Wednesday's practice due to a quadricep injury.

    Since Logan Thomas hurt his right hamstring Week 4 and found himself on IR, Seals-Jones has taken on a large role in Washington passing game. Over nearly three games as the team's top tight end, Seals-Jones has earned at least 90 percent of the offensive snaps in each contest on his way to 11 catches (on 19 targets) for 118 yards and one touchdown. Considering his production and situation, his status will be one to monitor as the week goes on. After Seals-Jones, the Football Team has John Bates, Sammis Reyes and Jace Sternberger at tight end.

  • Football Team's Curtis Samuel: DNP on Wednesday

    Samuel (groin) didn't practice Wednesday, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

    Samuel seems poised for another absence after aggravating his groin issue Week 5 against the Saints. While the issue isn't believed to be season-ending just yet, it's worth noting that he's been dealing with the injury since early June. In his first season in Washington, Samuel has managed just four catches (on five targets) for 19 yards in two appearances.

  • Football Team's Antonio Gibson: No practice Wednesday

    Gibson (shin) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

    Gibson has been dealing with what's been termed as a stress fracture in his shin since Week 4, but he's subsequently played three straight games on his way to 50 touches for 191 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns. His practice limitations are likely precautionary, and he'll still have two practices to prove his health ahead of Sunday's visit to Green Bay.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Tending to hamstring issue

    McLaurin didn't practice Wednesday due to a hamstring injury, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

    McLaurin was a late addition to Washington's Week 6 injury report due to a hamstring issue, but it didn't stop him from playing his usual allotment of snaps en route to a season-low 28 receiving yards this past Sunday against the Chiefs. Washington is likely managing McLaurin's health to ensure he's OK for game day, but his status nonetheless should be watched to make sure he's good to go for Sunday's contest at Green Bay.

  • Football Team's Chris Blewitt: New kicker for WFT

    Washington signed Blewitt off its practice squad Wednesday.

    The 26-year-old is poised to see his first NFL action Sunday in Green Bay, where he'll be taking over as the Football Team's kicker after Washington released veteran Dustin Hopkins in a corresponding move. Since going undrafted out of Pittsburgh in 2019, Blewitt has spent time in the Bears organization in addition to Washington, who signed him to its practice squad earlier this month. Blewitt should make for a low-end fantasy option while he remains Washington's kicker.

  • Football Team's Kamren Curl: Plays every snap

    Curl had nine tackles (seven solo) and one fumble recovery during Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Chiefs.

    Curl handled an every-down defensive role for the first time all season, and he was productive for IDP purposes with his opportunities. Now that the second-year pro appears to have secured such a large role, he could be an interesting fantasy option against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in Week 7.

  • Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Productive in Week 6 loss

    Holcomb had 10 tackles (nine solo), one pass breakup and one forced fumble during Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Chiefs.

    Holcomb remains a key component of Washington's defense, particularly in the run game, and he was one of few players able to make an impact versus Kansas City. With 58 total tackles through six games, Holcomb is in the mix as a startable IDP option heading into a road matchup against the Packers in Week 7.

  • Football Team's Jamin Davis: Breaks out vs. Chiefs

    Davis had 11 tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Chiefs.

    Davis handled a career-high 56 percent of defensive snaps, with Jon Bostic (pectoral) likely out for the season, and he also earned double-digit tackles for the first time. The rookie first-round pick will work to continue building momentum versus the Packers in Week 7.

  • Football Team's Antonio Gibson: Undergoes MRI

    Coach Ron Rivera said Monday that Gibson (calf) underwent an MRI, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Gibson sustained a calf injury late in Sunday's Week 6 loss to Kansas City, and the results of his exam should help determine the extent of the issue. The 23-year-old rushed 10 times for 44 yards while hauling in two of three targets for no yards prior to his exit Sunday, and J.D. McKissic is in line for additional work if Gibson is forced to miss time.

  • Football Team's Dustin Hopkins: Makes three kicks Sunday

    Hopkins made two of his three field-goal attempts while converting his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 31-13 loss to Kansas City.

    Hopkins was perfect on seven field-goal attempts across the last four weeks and made a pair of field goals in the first half of Sunday's Week 6 matchup. However, he missed a 42-yard try wide left early in the third quarter. The 31-year-old has made 12 of 14 field-goal attempts while converting 10 of 12 extra-point tries in 2021.

  • Football Team's Jaret Patterson: Takes two touches

    Patterson took one carry for five yards and caught his lone target for a loss of two yards in Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Chiefs.

    Patterson got three touches Week 4 and four more Week 5, but it was J.D. McKissic who picked up the slack Sunday with Antonio Gibson bothered by his shin at times. McKissic finished with eight carries for 45 yards and a team-high eight catches for 65 yards, while Gibson managed 10 carries for 44 yards and two catches for no gain. Patterson was a distant third in usage, per usual, but he could split work with McKissic in Week 7 at Green Bay if Gibson is absent or limited.

  • Football Team's John Bates: Records first NFL catch

    Bates caught his only target for a seven-yard gain in Sunday's 31-13 loss to Kansas City, registering his first regular-season NFL reception.

    The rookie fourth-round pick has seen just one target in two games since starting tight end Logan Thomas (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve. Ricky Seals-Jones has replaced Thomas in a three-down role, while Bates remains limited to blocking for the most part. He doesn't figure to see more than a target or two Week 7 at Green Bay.

  • Football Team's Adam Humphries: Finishes with negative yardage

    Humphries caught one of two targets for a four-yard loss in Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Chiefs.

    Humphries is averaging just 2.5 catches for 24.8 yards per game, struggling to build chemistry with QB Taylor Heinicke. The veteran slot man could even be demoted from the No. 3 receiver role at some point, though perhaps not before Week 7 in Green Bay, given that Curtis Samuel (groin) is in danger of missing another game.

  • Football Team's J.D. McKissic: Tops 100 total yards

    McKissic rushed the ball eight times for 45 yards in Sunday's 31-13 loss to Kansas City. He added eight receptions for 65 yards.

    McKissic saw a season-high eight rushing attempts, in part because Antonio Gibson was battling both shin and calf injuries. Even with increased activity on the ground, McKissic did the majority of his damage as a receiver serving as a checkdown option for Taylor Heinicke. McKissic topped 100 total yards for the first time this season and has racked up multiple receptions in four of six contests. If Gibson is forced to miss time, McKissic would likely share the backfield with Jaret Patterson.

  • Football Team's Taylor Heinicke: Struggles against KC

    Heinicke completed 24 of 39 pass attempts for 182 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 31-13 loss to Kansas City.

    Heinicke kept Washington in the game throughout the first half, completing 14 of his 25 passes for 132 yards and a touchdown. However, he and the offense stalled in the second half, and the end result was his lowest yardage total in a full game this season. After operating in a fairly efficient manner through three starts, Heinicke averaged only 4.7 yards per attempt in Sunday's game after picking up only 6.0 yards per attempt in Week 5. Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) reportedly has a chance to return in Week 7, which would almost certainly land Heinicke back on the bench.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Tallies 39-yard touchdown

    Seals-Jones recorded four receptions on six targets for 58 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Chiefs.

    Seals-Jones gave Washington a short-lived lead when he hauled in a 39-yard touchdown just before halftime. He tacked on an additional 14-yard reception, but he was otherwise limited to short gains. Through two weeks with Logan Thomas (hamstring) fully absent, Seals-Jones has combined to command 15 targets while hauling in nine receptions for 99 yards and a touchdown.

  • Football Team's Terry McLaurin: Slowed in Week 6

    McLaurin recorded four receptions on eight targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 31-13 loss to Kansas City.

    McLaurin was questionable for the contest with a hamstring injury, and it's possible he was still bothered by the issue. Washington also failed to get any offense going, as Taylor Heinicke passed for just 182 yards and one touchdown. McLaurin has now been held quiet for consecutive games, though he has racked up 19 targets in that span. That provides some hope that he can rebound in Week 7 against the Packers.
