05/05/17LBTrent MurphySuspensionSUSPENDMurphy is officially suspended for the first four games of the 2017 regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.

Murphy appealed the decision but was denied. While he's still eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games, the Redskins could enter the 2017 campaign with very little depth at outside linebacker, depending on what they do in the upcoming draft, considering Junior Galette (Achilles, legal troubles) is also at risk of missing some action at the beginning of the season.

04/29/17DBFabian MoreauChestQUESTIONABLEMoreau (chest) will be limited to start training camp, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Moreau is still in recovery from March surgery to repair a torn pectoral. The fact he avoided the PUP list suggests he could be close to returning to full strength.

02/18/17LBWill ComptonKnee - PCLQUESTIONABLECompton (knee) signed his restricted free agent tender with the Redskins on Monday, ESPN's John Keim reports.

Compton went undrafted out of Nebraska but has developed into a valued member of the Redskins defense through his first four seasons. The 27-year-old has posted at least 95 tackles in back-to-back campaigns, including a career-best 106 stops last year, which came despite him dealing with a sprained PCL toward the end of the season. However, after not needing surgery to repair that problem, Compton should now be raring to go as he faces competition from offseason signee Zach Brown for a starting inside linebacker position this term.

01/26/17DLAnthony LanierLower LegQUESTIONABLELanier (lower leg) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Lanier has missed the past few weeks due to foot and shin aliments, as the Redskins ultimately decided it would be best to end his season early. The rookie failed to take the field a notable amount this season, so his absence shouldn't have a grave impact on Washington's defensive scheme.

01/26/17DBDonte WhitnerQuadricepsQUESTIONABLEWhitner (quad) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Whitner strained his quad in last week's game against Chicago and was evaluated during the week. The Redskins can likely secure a playoff spot with a win over the Giants on Sunday but they'll need to rely on Duke Ihenacho and David Bruton for safety help. Whitner will finish with 66 tackles and a forced fumble in 11 games played this year.

01/20/17LBRyan KerriganElbowQUESTIONABLEKerrigan (finger) underwent minor surgery on his left elbow and will be sidelined for the next six to eight weeks, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

The minor surgery was used in order to clean up "loose bodies" in his left elbow. As a result, the linebacker will opt out of his Pro Bowl bid, which he earned after recording 33 tackles and 11 tackles in 16 games this season. Kerrigan originally injured his elbow back in mid-December, but played through the aliment for a handful of games before breaking his finger in Week 17's loss to the Giants. Barring any setbacks, the veteran should be ready for offseason team activities.

01/02/17DBQuinton DunbarConcussionQUESTIONABLEDunbar (concussion) won't play in Sunday's regular season finale against the Giants.

Dunbar missed last week's game due to his concussion and has yet to return to practice. If the Redskins make the playoffs Dunbar will have a shot to play in the wildcard round. Greg Toler and Kendall Fuller figure to see added snaps once again with Dunbar sidelined.
