Redskins' Tony Bergstrom: Won't suit up in Week 15
Bergstrom (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Bergstrom will miss his second straight game. The Redskins' offensive line is running low on depth, and Luke Bowanko is expected to start at right guard in place of Bergstrom.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Shaun Dion Hamilton: Clear of injury designation
Hamilton (shoulder) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Hamilton started over Zach Brown last week but suffered a strained shoulder and began the week as a limited participant, but was able to practice fully Friday. It remains unclear whether Brown or Hamilton will draw the start at Jacksonville, muddling any IDP potential for both players.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Ruled out for Sunday
Nicholson (illness) won't play Sunday against the Jaguars, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Nicholson has had issues with illness for some time now, dating back even to Week 11 against the Texans. The Michigan State product will miss his first game of the season Sunday. Nicholson, however, only has 26 defensive snaps in the last six games and none in his last four. Therefore, the Washington secondary likely won't be impacted too much by his absence.... See More ...

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Will not play Week 15
Anderson (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Jaguars, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Anderson missed last week's game against the Giants with this injury as well. The Alabama product sustained the injury Week 13 against the Eagles. If any player is going to get more work in Anderson's absence, it's likely fellow outside linebacker Pernell McPhee.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Jordan Reed: Ruled out officially
Reed (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Jacksonville.
As expected, Reed will miss at least one game after failing to practice in any capacity this week. The Redskins haven't ruled out a return for Week 16 and/or 17, but they probably won't want to take the risk if they don't have a shot a reaching the playoffs. Vernon Davis will take over as the team's top pass-catching tight end for Week 15, facing a Jaguars defense that's been middle of the road defending his position (58 catches for 640 yards and seven TDs on 88 targets)....

Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Cleared to play
Peterson (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game at Jacksonville, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Per usual, Peterson had his reps scaled back at practice but was never in danger of missing the game. It's a safe bet the Redskins will try to lean on their rushing attack in Sunday's matchup with a Jacksonville team that was humiliated by Derrick Henry last week. Of course, the injury-riddled Washington O-line may have some trouble opening holes without giving the Jaguars defense any reason to respect the pass.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Josh Doctson: Officially questionable
Doctson (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Jacksonville, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Doctson returned to practice Friday and seemingly has a shot to make it through the concussion protocol before Sunday's game. If he does, he'll square off against Jaguars cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye while catching passes from veteran journeyman Josh Johnson.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Chris Thompson: Questionable due to illness
Thompson missed Friday's practice with an illness and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Jacksonville, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
With two full days to recover, Thompson should still have a good chance to suit up as his team tries to stay in the playoff hunt. He's been quiet since returning from a lengthy absence due to a rib injury, but the Redskins may have a larger role in mind with Jordan Reed (toe) out of the lineup and Josh Johnson starting at quarterback. Sunday's kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. EST.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Jordan Reed: Not practicing
Reed (toe) isn't practicing Friday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Coach Jay Gruden said Thursday that Reed is making progress, but the tight end is still expected to miss at least one game. Vernon Davis will take on a larger workload Sunday in Jacksonville.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Josh Doctson: Getting some practice work
Doctson (concussion) returned to practice Friday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
While still likely to have a designation on the final injury report, Doctson is at least making a late bid to play in Sunday's game at Jacksonville. He didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Jamison Crowder: Returns to full practice
Crowder (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Crowder's return to full activity should clear up any lingering concern that he may have suffered a setback with the ankle injury that sidelined him for seven games before he suited up in the last two contests. The wideout caught two of seven targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 loss to the Giants and could draw more volume in the passing game Sunday in Jacksonville with top tight end Jordan Reed (toe) and fellow starting receiver Josh Doctson (concussion) both seemingly trending toward sitting out.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Workload limited at practice
Peterson (shoulder) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Though Peterson has opened Week 15 with back-to-back limited practices, he hasn't been forced to miss any games since dislocating his shoulder in early October and that seems unlikely to change Sunday in Jacksonville. More so than his shaky health, Peterson's fantasy utility has plummeted over the last two games due to the season-ending injury to No. 1 quarterback Alex Smith (lower leg). The lack of competent play under center has contributed to the Redskins facing early deficits in both contests, forcing them to abandon Peterson in the run game.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Jordan Reed: 'Coming along' in recovery
Reed (toe/ankle) was listed as a non-participant in Thursday's practice, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
The Redskins' practice report confirms what was already anticipated after Reed wasn't spotted on the field on the portion of Thursday's session that was accessible to the media. The tight end looks on track to miss his first game of the season Sunday in Jacksonville, but coach Jay Gruden told John Keim of ESPN.com that Reed is "coming along." That offers a sliver of hope that Reed's injury won't spell an end to his 2018 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Colt McCoy: May suit up again in 2018
Coach Jay Gruden is "optimistic" McCoy (fibula) will play again this season, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
In the wake of Alex Smith's gruesome season-ending leg fractures, McCoy lasted just seven quarters as the Redskins' primary signal-caller before breaking his own fibula. The offense has since cycled through two more quarterbacks, replacing Mark Sanchez with Josh Johnson during a Week 14 loss to the Giants. Johnson is the starter for the time being, but McCoy seems to be a candidate to start Week 16 or 17 if the healing process goes as planned.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Josh Doctson: Not practicing
Doctson (concussion) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Doctson's inability to log any reps during the Redskins' first two practices of Week 15 suggests he still has multiple steps to clear in the NFL's five-phase concussion protocol. With Washington's Week 15 matchup against the Jaguars just three days away, Doctson doesn't seem to be trending toward suiting up, though the Redskins may not make an official call on his status until gameday. In the event Doctson is sidelined, Maurice Harris and Michael Floyd would likely be featured alongside Jamison Crowder (ankle) in most of Washington's three-receiver formations.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Jordan Reed: Absent for practice
Reed (foot) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Coach Jay Gruden admitted a few days ago that the sprained big toe Reed sustained in the Week 14 loss to the Giants is something that could jeopardize the tight end's availability for the rest of the season. As a result, it's not surprising Reed hasn't been able to log any practice reps for the first two days of the Redskins' Week 15 prep. It seems reasonable to expect Reed to miss at least Sunday's game against the Jaguars, in which case Vernon Davis would see added snaps and targets as the Redskins' starting tight end....

Redskins' Zach Brown: Disappears from injury report
Brown was not listed on the Redskins' injury report Wednesday.
Brown's absence from the injury report raises some suspicion regarding his future with Washington. Reports surfaced early Wednesday that Brown could be on his way out, but it seems nothing is imminent. His disappearance from the injury report could indicate that the Redskins are prepping to move on. On the flip side, Shaun Dion Hamilton's (shoulder) uncertain status could be reason to keep Brown around for the short-term and thus his removal from the report. Either way, we should know soon what the future holds for Brown.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Derrius Guice: Dealing with major recovery setback
Guice (knee) developed an infection after his mid-August surgery to repair a torn ACL, leading to three additional procedures and a seven-week course of intravenous antibiotics, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
The infection delayed Guice's rehab process and kept him away from the Redskins' facility all season, but the rookie is finally making progress and still hopes to be available for OTAs in late May and early June. Even if his optimistic outlook doesn't come to pass, the rookie running back has some margin for error given that he'll be 13 months removed from the initial injury by the time Week 1 of 2019 rolls around. Guice's progress is sure to be a major story during the offseason, as his Week 1 availability can no longer be taken for granted.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Josh Doctson: Going through concussion protocol
Doctson (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. "I think Josh has a chance to be OK [for Sunday's game against the Jaguars]" coach Jay Gruden said. "He's getting checked out by an independent guy and hopefully we'll know more [Thursday.]"
Doctson entered the concussion protocol in the wake of a Week 14 demolition at the hands of the Giants. Gruden's comments likely indicate Doctson had an evaluation Wednesday to get through one of the five steps in the protocol, but ultimately the wideout will need to gain clearance from an independent neurologist to play this weekend....
