  • Redskins' Robert Davis: Ascends to active roster

    The Redskins promoted Davis to the active roster Friday.

    Davis spent the preseason with the Redskins but was cut Sept. 7 and relegated to the practice squad. Due to sticking with the team, Davis should understand the Redskins' system and will be ready if called upon. However, he's likely to stay in a special-teams role.

  • Redskins' Aaron Colvin: Reaches deal with Redskins

    Colvin signed a contract with the Redskins on Friday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

    The Redskins need reinforcements in the secondary with Quinton Dunbar (knee) deemed questionable and Fabian Moreau (ankle) listed as doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys. Colvin brings plenty of experience to the table, as he was a strong slot corner for the Jaguars in 2017. However, he struggled with the Texans last season and was a liability in coverage for them Week 1 versus the Saints, leading to his release from the team. It's unclear what role Colvin will have on the Redskins' defense, but with so many injuries he may be immediately plugged into a starting role.

  • Redskins' Vernon Davis: Replacing Jordan Reed again

    Davis is poised for another start Sunday against the Cowboys, with fellow tight end Jordan Reed (concussion) ruled out for a second straight week.

    Davis took full advantage in last week's loss to the Eagles, catching four of seven targets for 59 yards and a touchdown while playing 81.3 percent of the snaps on offense. Historically, his involvement in the passing game has been inconsistent even when Reed is unavailable, but the 35-year-old still rates as one of the league's better athletes at tight end.

  • Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Full speed ahead

    Nicholson (foot) will play in Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

    Nicholson started the week as a non-participant in practice and ascended to working without limitations. The Redskins can ill afford more injuries on defense since DE Jonathan Allen (knee) is already ruled out while CB Quinton Dunbar (knee) is questionable and CB Fabian Moreau (ankle) is doubtful. Nicholson will be leaned on heavily in coverage due to the depleted secondary and pass rush.

  • Redskins' Caleb Brantley: Placed on IR

    Washington placed Brantley (ankle) on injured reserve Friday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Brantley sustained the injury in Washington's season opener against Philadelphia. The 25-year-old was already slated to miss Sunday's Week 2 matchup with Dallas, but it seems the injury will require a longer recovery period. T.Y. McGill will fill in for Brantley while he's sidelined.

  • Redskins' Derrius Guice: Placed on IR

    Guice (knee) has been placed on injured reserve, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Earlier this week, Guice had surgery to trim a torn meniscus, ruling him out indefinitely. He's now ineligible to play for the next eight weeks, though he can resume practicing after six weeks. Adrian Peterson will serve as Washington's lead runner, with pass-catching back Chris Thompson also a candidate to get some of the snaps and touches that otherwise would've gone to Guice.

  • Redskins' Caleb Brantley: Won't play Sunday

    Brantley (ankle) will miss Sunday's clash with the Cowboys, Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington reports.

    Brantley wasn't able to practice Wednesday or Thursday due to this injury. The 25-year-old sustained the ankle issue in last Sunday's season opener and sported a walking boot afterward. With Brantley and Jonathan Allen (knee) both out, Matthew Ioannidis, Treyvon Hester and T.Y Mcgill are left as the only healthy defensive ends for the Redskins.

  • Redskins' Fabian Moreau: Doubtful for Week 2

    Moreau (ankle) is considered doubtful for Sunday's tilt with Dallas, Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington reports.

    Moreau missed Washington's season opener with this injury. The 25-year-old was able to get in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday. If Moreau can't suit up for Sunday's contest, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Jimmy Moreland could each see extra reps in Washington's secondary.

  • Redskins' Quinton Dunbar: Questionable for Sunday

    Dunbar (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's divisional matchup with the Cowboys, Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington reports.

    Dunbar was limited in Wednesday's practice and missed Thursday's session altogether. According to John Keim of ESPN.com, the 27-year-old's knee swelled up after Wednesday's practice. If Dunbar ultimately can't suit up Sunday, Fabian Moreau (ankle) would likely fill in if he's able to play. Otherwise, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie could see extra time on the field as well.

  • Redskins' Colt McCoy: Will miss Sunday

    McCoy (lower leg) won't play in Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys, Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington reports.

    McCoy missed the season opener with this injury as well. It remains unclear when the 32-year-old will return to action or even practice, as he was unable to participate in practice Wednesday and Thursday. It seems rookie Dwayne Haskins will serve as Case Keenum's backup Sunday with McCoy sidelined.

  • Redskins' Jordan Reed: Ruled out for a second game

    Reed (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Dallas, Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington reports.

    Last week, the Redskins waited until Saturday to rule Reed out, with coach Jay Gruden then saying Monday that he was optimistic for a Week 2 return. Now ruled out Friday, the tight end doesn't seem to be making any progress through the NFL's concussion protocol, leaving Vernon Davis as the starter for a second straight week. The 35-year-old Davis played 81.3 percent of snaps in a season-opening loss to Philadelphia, catching four of seven targets for 59 yards and a touchdown.

  • Redskins' Jordan Reed: Not spotted at practice

    Reed (concussion) isn't present for the media-access portion of Friday's practice, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

    Ben Standig of The Athletic notes that optimism is waning in regard to Reed's availability for Sunday's game against Dallas. The tight end remained limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday, showing no sign of tangible progress through the NFL's concussion protocol. Another update will be available Friday afternoon when Washington releases the final injury report for Week 2.

  • Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Won't play Week 2

    Allen (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, The Team 980 reports.

    Allen suffered the left MCL sprain in the season opener and was a non-participant at practice Wednesday and Thursday, so it's not a major surprise he won't be playing Sunday. Treyvon Hester figures to see an increased role in his absence, especially if Caleb Brantley (ankle) is also ruled out.
