  • Redskins' Terry McLaurin: May be injured

    McLaurin may be dealing with an injury, Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington reports.

    The rookie was removed from Washington's preseason opener after the first snap and didn't play at all in Thursday's exhibition loss to Washington. McLaurin is listed with the second unit on the preseason depth chart, behind Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson (quad) and Trey Quinn (thumb). Given the track records of the players ahead of him, McLaurin still has a shot to earn a role on offense, though his prowess on special-teams coverage units was identified by coach Jay Gruden as the primary motivation for using a third-round pick on the Ohio State product. Multiple reports from training camp suggest the Redskins have been pleasantly surprised by McLaurin's work on offense.

  • Redskins' Quinton Dunbar: Returns to action Thursday

  • Redskins' Shaun Dion Hamilton: Unable to suit up

    Hamilton (chest) didn't play in Thursday's preseason loss to the Bengals.

    Listed as a starter on the preseason depth chart, Hamilton could be tasked with a three-down role after the Redskins lost Reuben Foster to a severe knee injury and later released Mason Foster. Such a role likely would lead to IDP utility, but Hamilton first needs to get healthy before Week 1. Other candidates for playing time at inside linebacker include Jon Bostic, Cole Holcomb and Josh Harvey-Clemons.

  • Redskins' Josh Doctson: No receptions

    Doctson was targeted once but not record a catch in the Redskins' second preseason game against the Bengals on Thursday.

    Doctson was targeted by starting quarterback Case Keenum on third down during the team's second offensive series. He made no other appearance on the stat sheet, though the first-team offense took the field for only three drives. Doctson appears headed for a Week 1 start, but he eventually may face a challenge from Terry McLaurin or another young receiver.

  • Redskins' Chris Thompson: Gets only one carry

    Thompson carried the ball once for minus-one yard in the Redskins' second preseason game against the Bengals on Thursday.

    Thompson received his only carry of the contest on the team's third offensive drive, though he was tackled for a loss. More important than than preseason production has been Thompson's health, as he does not appear hampered by previous rib and ankle injuries. Though the team added to its running back depth this offseason, Thompson should be in line for plenty of targets out of the Washington backfield this season so long as he can avoid injuries.

  • Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Efficient in short performance

    Peterson carried the ball four times for 31 yards in the Redskins' second preseason game against the Bengals on Thursday.

    Peterson received carries on the team's first two offensive drives. He made an immediate impression, breaking off a 26-yard gain on his first rush of the contest. Entering the season with 13,318 career-rushing yards, Peterson has nothing to prove in preseason action, though he appears prepared for his 14th professional season. With Derrius Guice (knee) still not cleared for contact, Peterson could be in line to receive the bulk of the team's carries to begin the campaign.

  • Redskins' Dwayne Haskins: Throws first touchdown

    Haskins completed seven of 14 passes for 114 yards and a touchdown Thursday against the Bengals in the Redskins' second preseason game.

    Haskins entered the game after Case Keenum and led the team to its only touchdown of the contest. The rookie showed particular rapport with Robert Davis, completing two passes to him, highlighted by a 55-yard touchdown. While Haskins posted a similar completion rate and yardage total to his preseason debut, he showed improvement Thursday by not turning the ball over. Case Keenum remains the favorite for the Week 1 starting job, but Haskins still has some time to make a push.

  • Redskins' Case Keenum: Struggles in second preseason game

    Keenum completed three of seven passes for 52 yards in the team's second game of the preseason against the Bengals on Thursday.

    Keenum played three offensive series, leading the first-team offense. He was largely ineffective, though did show some rapport with veteran tight end Vernon Davis, connecting with him on 17 and 26-yard passes. While Keenum is expected to be the starter in Week 1 against the Eagles, he hasn't looked very strong early on with his new team, completing seven of 16 pass attempts for 112 yards and a touchdown through two preseason games. Both rookie Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy (foot/leg) could push Keenum to be the leader of the offense if he doesn't pick up his performance quickly.

    Humphrey will not return to Thursday's preseason game versus the Bengals due to an undisclosed injury.

    It is unclear what specific injury Humphrey is dealing with, but it will keep him sidelined for the remainder of the game. He is currently a long shot to earn a spot on the team's 53-man roster, so any type of injury is unfavorable for his chances.

  • Redskins' Dwayne Haskins: In line for two quarters of play

    Haskins is expected to play approximately two quarters during Thursday's preseason contest against the Bengals, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

    Haskins was hit and miss in his first pro appearance last Thursday, completing eight of 14 passes for 117 yards and two interceptions while taking two carries for 17 yards. After another week of practice under his belt, the Redskins are aiming for progress from the rookie signal-caller, namely how he handles protection calls and timing on different throws. Haskins will take the field after Case Keenum gets some run with the first-teamers.
