Position Listing
Demetrius Rhaney
News
Rhaney and the Redskins agreed to a contract Tuesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

With Spencer Long (quadriceps) requiring season-ending surgery and hitting injured reserve, Rhaney will replace him on the 53-man roster to provide another option at center. Long's replacement in the starting lineup, Chase Roullier, came out of Sunday's loss to the Saints with a hand injury and is uncertain to play Thursday against the Giants, potentially paving the way for Rhaney to log significant snaps right away for Washington.

Phillip Taylor
News
Taylor (quadriceps) re-signed with the Redskins to a one-year deal on Tuesday, Liz Clarke of The Washington Post reports.

Taylor was slated to be the Redskins starting nose tackle last season after an impressive training camp, but the veteran tore his left quadricep in a preseason match with the Bengals and landed on injured reserve for the remainder of the year. If he can return to full strength, the 30-year-old should have an opportunity to compete for the starting role once again, with Ziggy Hood and Stacy McGee also vying for the spot atop the depth chart.

Injury
Quadriceps - Questionable for the start of training camp
Preston Smith
News
Smith tallied 42 tackles (31 solo) and eight sacks in 16 starts for the Redskins in 2017.

Smith finished the season with two interceptions and a forced fumble, all of which came in the final three games of the season, as well as three of his sacks. The 25-year-old should enter the final year of his rookie contract as Washington's starter at outside linebacker opposite of Ryan Kerrigan.

Orlando Franklin
News
Franklin was released by the Redskins on Friday, Brian McNally of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

Franklin was signed by Washington less than a week ago as they dealt with numerous injuries on their offensive line, but they found themselves with 12 healthy linemen prior to cutting the veteran guard. The 29-year-old will now wait for another opportunity to latch onto an NFL roster.

Bashaud Breeland
News
Breeland, who agreed to sign with the Panthers on Tuesday, failed his physical with a non-football injury and will become a free agent, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

Breeland is reportedly nursing an infected cut on one of his feet and is "months away" from being able to pass a physical, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. One of the top cornerbacks on the open market, Breeland had agreed to a sizable three-year, $24 million contract with the Panthers and his sudden dismissal presumably sends Carolina back to the open market for a starting-caliber cornerback.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jamison Crowder
News
Crowder has been working on his explosiveness with the Duke University strength and conditioning staff, preparing to join the Redskins for offseason workouts in mid-April, Steve Wiseman of The News & Observer reports. "Personally, I still think there's a lot that I can accomplish here," said Crowder. "That's why I've been here working, grinding with coach [Noel] Durfey and the sprint staff. I've been working running routes, getting back into the groove of things before we start OTAs."

A 2015 fourth-round pick, Crowder likely is hoping for a contract extension as he prepares for the final season os his rookie deal. He only scored three times in 15 games last season while noticing a slight dip from 2016 in catch rate (63.5 percent), yards per reception (12.0) and yards per target (7.6), though all of those numbers are above average for a receiver who primarily operates from the slot. Crowder shouldn't have too much trouble adjusting to the change from Kirk Cousins to Alex Smith, considering the latter has long been one of the league's more accurate quarterbacks on short throws. There will be a bit more competition for targets following the offseason addition of Paul Richardson, but Crowder remains a tentative favorite to lead the team in receiving opportunities for a second straight year, as TE Jordan Reed (toe) can't be expected to play a full schedule. Crowder, Richardson and Josh Doctson all seem to be enjoying healthy offseasons, whereas Reed and pass-catching back Chris Thompson (leg) are rehabbing from their respective surgeries.

Kevin Hogan
News
The Browns dealt Hogan to the Redskins on Friday, Patrick Maks of the Browns' official site reports.

With this trade, the overhaul of the Browns' quarterback room is complete. Following in the footsteps of DeShone Kizer (to Green Bay) and Cody Kessler (to Jacksonville), Hogan has been shipped out while Tyrod Taylor and Drew Stanton have joined the fold in Cleveland. In his new environs, Hogan seemingly will compete with Stephen Morris for the No. 3 gig behind Alex Smith and Colt McCoy. Hogan's eight appearances with the Browns between 2016 and 2017 produced 621 yards on 59.4-percent passing to go with four touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Montae Nicholson
News
Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Nicholson (concussion) suffered a setback Wednesday that prevented the safety from practicing, Brian McNally of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

It sounded like the Redskins initially expected Nicholson to take part in Wednesday's session in some capacity after the head injury sidelined him for the team's last two contests. Unfortunately for the rookie, it appears he's still experiencing concussion-like symptoms, which will again threaten his availability for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Any further absences from Nicholson would translate to more playing time for Deshazor Everett, who has recorded 13 tackles over the past two contests.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Arthur Jones
News
The Redskins placed Jones (shoulder) on injured reserve Saturday.

Jones dislocated his shoulder in Sunday's win over the Seahawks and was expected to miss some time. Stacy McGee remains the lone reserve nose tackle for the Redskins, who continue to be plagued by injuries.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Mason Foster
News
Foster re-signed with the Redskins on Thursday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

Foster played through a torn labrum before being placed on injured reserve following Week 7. The eighth-year linebacker should have a role cut out for him in the Redskins' defense next season given that he can get healthy.

Josh Norman
News
Norman recorded 64 tackles (47 solo), nine passes defensed and one forced fumble across 14 games in 2017. Norman said of his 2017 performance, "I feel like it was really solid," Michael Phillips of the Richmond-Times Dispatch reports. "Really solid. I know when you look back at it overall, when you look at the interceptions category ... I didn't have any interceptions. Shoot, when they don't throw you the ball to your side, how many opportunities or chances can you get?"

It was the first season since 2013 that Norman failed to record an interception, although his 64 tackles -- fourth overall on the team -- were on par with last year's numbers. Norman is currently on track to be the highest-paid player on Washington next season and remains under contract through the 2020 season, although the Redskins can opt out of the deal during any of the next three seasons.

Trent Williams
News
Williams (knee) is expected back for training camp, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Williams missed six games due to his knee injury in 2017, playing through the injury in several other weeks. The team has said they won't draft with concern for Williams' health and are planning on him being back to 100 percent for the 2018 season.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Montori Hughes
News
Hughes signed a reserve/future contract with the Reskins on Wednesday.

Hughes signed a future contract with the Chiefs in January 2017 but was waived priot to the season. The 28-year-old is likely a potential depth option for the Redskins' defensive line in 2018.

Arie Kouandjio
News
Kouandjio signed a contract with the Redskins on Saturday, Brian McNally of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

Kouandjio was Washington's fourth-round draft pick in 2015 but was residing on the Ravens' practice squad this season. The 25-year-old will likely serve as offensive line depth since Washington's offensive line is decimated by injury.

Keith Marshall
News
Marshall (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

This marks the second time in as many years that Marshall has landed on IR before the regular season began. He tore his patella tendon and was waived on Monday. Now that he's cleared waivers, he'll be able to remain with the Redskins as he recovers and looks towards next year.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Terrell McClain
News
McClain (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

McClain has been limited in practice all week to earn the questionable tag, and he just made his return from a four-game absence in last Sunday's win over the Broncos. The 29-year-old seems likely to play through the injury for the season finale, but his availability or lack thereof will presumably be confirmed in pregame warmups.

Jordan Reed
News
Redskins coach Jay Gruden seemed to confirm that Reed (hamstring, toe) is recovering from toe surgery, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official website reports. "I think [Reed]'s had some procedures done on his toes and now it's just a matter of the rehab and he's been working hard at it," Gruden said. "He's been working on his upper body while his toe are recovering, so hopefully we'll see a 100 percent healthy Jordan by training camp."

Reed missed most of training camp and the preseason while rehabbing a sprained toe last year, though it was a combination of shoulder, rib and hamstring injuries that ultimately cost him 10 regular-season games. He was said to be considering surgery on his lingering toe issue in December when the hamstring injury landed him on injured reserve, but there wasn't confirmation until Gruden's comments Tuesday. Reed likely will miss Organized Team Activities in May, but the Redskins are optimistic he'll be ready for training camp. If he can actually stay healthy, Reed shouldn't have too much trouble adjusting to Alex Smith, who has an impressive history of coaxing big seasons out of tight ends.

Injury
Toe - Questionable for the start of training camp
James Sample
News
Sample was released by the Jaguars on Sunday, John Oehser of the team's official site reports.

Sample had been in Jacksonville since the Jaguars took him in the fourth round of the 2015 draft. However, he only appeared in four games across two seasons due to a combination of forearm and shoulder injuries. The team replaced him with fellow safety Jeron Johnson, formerly of the Chiefs, Seahawks and Redskins.

Cassanova McKinzy
News
McKinzy was waived by the Buccaneers on Monday, the team's official site reports.

Despite a strong first impression, McKinzy's hamstring issues seem to have suffocated his roster chance. The rookie's inability to perform at the same high level that he had prior to his hamstring setback is what likely prompted this move.

Zach Vigil
News
Vigil had 59 tackles (41 solo) and two interceptions in seven games for the Redskins in 2017.

Vigil signed with Washington in mid-November and initially had a limited role defensively, but earned more opportunities as the team's injuries mounted towards the end of the year. The 26-year-old took advantage with 47 tackles and both interceptions in the final four games of the season. Vigil is under contract through 2018 -- while fellow inside linebackers Zach Brown and Mason Foster are slated for free agency -- leaving a sizable hole in the middle of the Redskins defense should they not be retained.

DeAngelo Hall
News
Hall (knee) is active for Sunday's tilt against the Saints.

Hall was limited throughout the week due to his knee bruise but he'll play through the injury. He is expected to see his typical role on the defense.

D.J. Swearinger
News
Swearinger recorded five tackles (five solo) and a sack in Monday's loss to the Chiefs.

After his participation in practice declined last week, it was suspected that Swearinger would not suit up for Monday's game, but he instead turned in one of his best performances in a Redskins' uniform. He'll now get some extended time to rest and get healthy as the team heads into their bye week.

Josh Harvey-Clemons
News
Harvey-Clemons suffered a back injury during Sunday's game against the Seahawks and is questionable to return.

Harvey-Clemons provides depth for the Redskins on defense. If he is indeed out for the remainder of the game, Martrell Speight is in line to back up Will Compton and Zach Brown at inside linebacker.

Ryan Kerrigan
News
Kerrigan (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants in New York.

Kerrigan recorded two of the four sacks of Eli Manning in Week 12, but the Redskins' sack leader may have a more difficult time felling the long-time Giants starting quarterback. As evidence, Manning has only been sacked three times in three games since retaking the reigns of the offense in Week 14.

Chris Carter
News
Carter (lower leg) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

Carter fractured his fibula late in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, bringing his season to an end. The special teams ace recorded seven tackles (four solo) in 13 games this year.

Injury
Lower Leg - Questionable for the start of training camp
Tavaris Barnes
News
Barnes injured his right knee during Thursday's preseason game against the Redskins, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Barnes last saw regular-season action in 2015, when he played 131 snaps over 12 games with the Saints and posted just five tackles. He faces long odds of making the Bucs roster, with this current injury further hurting his chances.

Deshazor Everett
News
The Redskins re-signed Everett to a multi-year contract Tuesday.

Everett was slated to enter the 2018 season as a restricted free agent, and the Redskins opted for an undisclosed multi-year contract following his breakout season. The 26-year-old should compete for snaps at safety with Montae Nicholson and D.J. Swearinger. Su'a Cravens could be in the mix, as well.

Tress Way
No Updates
Fabian Moreau
News
Moreau (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Moreau suffered this injury in Week 9's matchup against the Seahawks, but the rest of the Redskins' cornerbacks are healthy again, so he will return to his strict special-teams regimen.

Brandon Scherff
News
Scherff's fifth-year team option was exercised by Washington on Monday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

Scherff has been nothing short of outstanding since joining the Redskins back in 2015. At 26 years old, Scherff already has two pro bowl appearances under his belt and has steadily worked his way towards the top of the food chain in offensive lineman world.

Ziggy Hood
News
Hood was diagnosed Tuesday with a fractured right elbow and won't play in the Redskins' season finale against the Giants, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Head coach Jay Gruden revealed Hood wouldn't require surgery to address the injury, but the nose tackle will be shut down nonetheless in order to recover from the setback. Hood will wrap up the 2017 campaign with 25 tackles (13 solo) and a half sack over 15 appearances.

Injury
Elbow - Questionable for the start of training camp
Martrell Spaight
News
Spaight posted 75 tackles (45 solo) and two pass breakups in 15 games with the Redskins in 2017.

Spaight's third season was up-and-down but he finished on a strong note with 29 tackles over the final three games of the season. The inconsistency made him a difficult to trust IDP option, which included six games with two tackles or less. The 24-year-old is entering the final season of his rookie contract and could have more opportunities at inside linebacker with starters Zach Brown and Mason Foster currently unsigned for 2018.

Colt McCoy
News
McCoy did not record a single pass during the 2017 season.

McCoy's third season as the Redskins' backup quarterback was his quietest, as the 31-year-old only took the field for one contest, failing to register a pass attempt in the process. Washington now enters another offseason with Kirk Cousins as an unrestricted free agent, leaving McCoy as the most experienced quarterback under contract on the roster. McCoy signed a deal through the 2018 season.

Josh Doctson
News
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Doctson will have more opportunities to make plays on 50-50 throws this upcoming season, Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington reports.

The Redskins reportedly were frustrated with Kirk Cousins at times last season, believing he should've been taking more chances throwing toward Doctson in tight coverage. The 2016 first-round pick didn't exactly make a strong case for himself with only 35 catches on 78 targets (44.9 percent), though he did score six times while producing 14.3 yards per reception. Gruden expects Doctson to take another step forward in Year 3 with Alex Smith now serving as his quarterback. Doctson's 6-foot-2, 206-pound frame and 42-inch vertical jump should make him a nice fit alongside Jamison Crowder (5-foot-9, 177 pounds) and offseason acquisition Paul Richardson (6-foot, 183 pounds) in the three-wide formations that comprise most of Gruden's offense.

Kapri Bibbs
News
Bibbs carried 12 times for 47 yards and caught eight of nine targets for an additional 53 yards during Sunday's 18-10 loss to the Giants.

Semaje Perine (ankle) went down on the team's second offensive play, opening the door for Bibbs to see his largest workload of the season. He responded by leading the team in both rushing and receiving, while reaching 100 scrimmage yards for the first time in his young career. Bibbs saw action in just the final three games this season before he becomes a restricted free agent in the spring, but perhaps this showing will earn him some extra attention on the market from teams in need of backfield depth.

Nick Sundberg
No Updates
Samaje Perine
News
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said there's a good chance the team will use an early draft pick on a runner to join Perine, Chris Thompson (leg) and Rob Kelley (ankle) in the backfield, Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan DC reports.

Thompson did a phenomenal job on passing downs until a fractured fibula ended his season after 10 games, but it was a far different story for Perine (3.4 yards per carry) and Kelley (3.1 YPC) on early downs. The only silver lining for the 2017 fourth-round pick was consecutive 100-yard games in Weeks 11 and 12, as he otherwise produced 3.2 yards or less per carry in each game with double-digit totes. Thompson will be locked in on passing downs if his recovery continues on schedule, whereas Perine and Kelley may end up giving way to a highly touted rookie. The Redskins don't seem inclined to add veteran help in the backfield, likely seeking an element of explosiveness that isn't available among the remaining free agents.

Stacy McGee
News
McGee totaled 44 tackles (24 solo) in 16 games for Washington in 2017.

McGee signed a five-year contract in March of 2017 and did not record a sack, but the 44 tackles doubled his previous career high. The 27-year-old has only three career sacks in five seasons so a similar season could be in store for 2018 with Ziggy Hood also slated to return to the rotation at nose tackle.

Cameron Jefferson
No Updates
Jeremy Sprinkle
News
Sprinkle recorded two receptions for 13 yards and a touchdown across 11 games in his rookie season.

Sprinkle failed to the see the field throughout the 2017 season as he was buried on the depth chart behind the likes of Jordan Reed (hamstring), Vernon Davis and Niles Paul. However, with Niles Paul slated to become an unrestricted free agent, Sprinkle could see increased offensive reps in his sophomore campaign -- especially when you also factor in Reed's injury history.

Alex Balducci
News
The Jets claimed Balducci off waivers Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

Balducci was a defensive lineman throughout his collegiate career at Oregon, but made the switch to the offensive line last season as a member of the 49ers. He ended up playing just two games for the 49ers after being promoted from the team's practice squad and was eventually cut during the offseason. He'll now head to the Jets, where he'll serve in a depth role at guard if he's able to make the 53-man roster out of training camp.

Byron Marshall
News
The Redskins placed Marshall (hamstring) on injured reserve Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports.

Marshall injured his hamstring on a first-half kickoff return Sunday versus the Chargers. He'll join three other Redskins running backs on IR: Chris Thompson (fibula), Rob Kelley (ankle) and Keith Marshall (knee). Moving forward, Samaje Perine (illness), LeShun Daniels and Kapri Bibbs, promoted from the practice squad Tuesday, will comprise Washington's backfield.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jonathan Allen
News
Allen (foot) hopes to be ready for Organized Team Activities (OTAs) in late April, but he admitted he's not sure if that actually will happen, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official website reports.

Selected 17th overall in last year's draft, Allen had 10 tackles and a sack on 159 defensive snaps before suffering a Lisfranc injury Week 6. He underwent successful surgery in October and was said to be on track for a Week 15 return, but the Redskins ruled him out for the season once their playoff chances evaporated. Allen should be back at full strength long before training camp, ready to make a push for one of the starting defensive end spots in Washington's 3-4 scheme. If nothing else, he figures to have a key role as an interior pass rusher in nickel packages.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Morgan Moses
News
Moses (ankle) is expected back in time for training camp, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Moses underwent surgery on his ankle this offseason and will likely miss Washington's Offseason Team Activities as a result. However, the team expects him back to full health in time for the 2018 season and is looking for him to participate throughout training camp as well.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kenny Ladler
News
Lader inked a reserve/future contract with the Redskins on Tuesday.

Ladler last layed in the NFL for the Bills during the 2014 season. He has spent the previous two seasons in the CFL with the Edmonton Eskimos. He tallied 156 tackles, five interceptions, three forced fumbles, and a touch down across 34 games. He will look to impress with the Redskins during the offseason.

Shawn Lauvao
News
Lauvao (neck) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

Lauvao has been limited the last few weeks due to a stinger injury, which forced him to miss the Redskins' Week 9 game against the Seahawks. With Lauvao's condition failing to show much improvement, the Redskins opted to shut him down, making him the 15th player on the team to land on injured reserve this season.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Sam Irwin-Hill
No Updates
Brian Quick
News
Quick signed a contract with the Redskins on Friday.

Quick tallied six receptions for 76 yards in 11 games for Washington, both career lows. The 28-year-old will need to illustrate better chemistry with new quarterback Alex Smith if he is to factor in the Redskins passing attack in 2018.

Rob Kelley
News
Kelley (ankle) will have a lot to prove during the offseason program and OTAs, Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Kelley earned a roster spot as an undrafted rookie in 2016 and emerged as Washington's lead back by the end of the year, but he then managed just 62 carries for 194 yards (3.2 average) and three touchdowns in seven games last season, limited by ankle, knee and rib injuries. The ankle issue landed him on injured reserve in mid-November, and while he seems to have avoided surgery and should be healthy for the offseason program, Kelley ultimately may find himself in a battle for a roster spot. Chris Thompson (leg) and 2017 fourth-round pick Samaje Perine figure to make the team without question, and coach Jay Gruden has already acknowledged the likelihood that Washington uses an early draft pick on a running back. As an early-down thumper without much special teams value, Kelley likely will become expendable if he doesn't look better than Perine during spring and summer practices.

Alex McCalister
News
McCalister (hamstring) reverted to injured reserve per the official NFL transaction log.

McCalilster was waived/injured by the Eagles during final roster cuts Saturday and ultimately cleared waivers. He will now remain on the team's IR unless the two parties can reach an injury settlement.

Chris Thompson
News
Thompson (leg/ankle) made it through Monday's on-field workout without incident, potentially setting him up for some degree of participation in Organized Team Activities (OTAs) in May, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the Redskins' official website reports.

Thompson fractured his fibula Nov. 19, bringing an early end to a breakout campaign that included 39 catches, 804 scrimmage yards and six touchdowns in 10 games. His walking boot came off in early February, and Monday marked his return to on-field running drills (albeit without making any cuts). Thompson isn't too worried about the fibula fracture, but he does have some concerns about his recovery from the accompanying ligament damage in his ankle . While he's not expected to be a full go for OTAs, his doctor believes he could be healthy enough to participate in some individual drills, which would give Thompson a chance to get accustomed to Alex Smith's throwing motion. Redskins coach Jay Gruden expects to use an early draft pick on a running back, but he's likely looking to add competition for Rob Kelley (ankle) and Samaje Perine on early downs, rather than for Thompson on passing downs.

Orlando Scandrick
News
The Redskins signed Scandrick (back) to a contract Monday, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports.

Jettisoned by the only organization he's ever known (the Cowboys) on Sunday, Scandrick found a new home in quick order. Due to his experience, the 10-year pro is the top candidate to work opposite Josh Norman in Washington's base defense in 2018. For his career, Scandrick has averaged 3.2 tackles per game while racking up 11.5 sacks, eight interceptions and six forced fumbles in 125 outings.

Robert Davis
News
Davis failed to record a reception in the one game he played for the Redskins in 2017.

The 2017 sixth-round selection found himself on the very bottom of Washington's depth chart this season, spending the majority of the year on the practice squad. He'll now have the offseason to grow in Matt Cavanaugh's offense as one of four receivers currently under contract for next season.

Maurice Harris
News
Harris recorded four receptions for 62 yards and one touchdown across six games in 2017.

Harris failed to make the initial 53-man roster heading into Week 1, remaining on the practice squad until he was called up for Week 10's game against the Vikings. He logged 41 offensive reps in that contest and then never saw more than 12 in another game all season. Harris is one of four Washington receivers currently under contract for next season and could receive an opportunity to move up the depth chart should the team part ways with their other depth wideouts such as Brian Quick, Ryan Grant and Terrelle Pryor (ankle).

Manasseh Garner
News
The Redskins promoted Garner from the practice squad to their 53-man roster Wednesday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

Garner previously attended training camp with the Redskins before being cut in September and latching on with the team's practice squad. He'll slot in fourth on the depth chart at tight end for Washington, making it uncertain if he'll dress for the season finale Sunday against the Giants.

Matthew Ioannidis
News
Ioannidis exited Sunday's 18-10 loss to the Giants with a knee injury.

Ioannidis sustained the injury in the second half and was designated questionable to return, but was able to leave the field under his own power.

A.J. Francis
News
The Redskins signed Francis to a contract Tuesday, ESPN 980 Washington reports.

Francis previously spent a week with the Redskins in October, but didn't appear in a game. His chances of suiting up will be higher this time around with the Redskins playing their next game Thursday against the Giants and perhaps not having fellow defensive lineman Terrell McClain (toe) available for the short week.

Chase Roullier
News
Roullier (hand) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Roullier has missed the previous three games but will make his return after being a limited participant in practice this week. The 24-year-old should step back in as starting center for Washington.

Ty Nsekhe
News
Nsekhe signed with the Redskins on Monday.

This will be Nsekhe's fourth season with the Redskins after appearing in 40 games and making 11 starts with the team over the last three years. Nsekhe started in five of Washington's last six games in 2017 after being sidelined for five games with a core injury.

Chris Bazile

Anthony Lanier
News
Lanier (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Lanier was limited in practice for the second consecutive week, but it shouldn't affect his abilities Thursday night. Regardless, he's still only deployed for around 30 defensive snaps per game, so he's not a consistent fantasy threat.

Pete Robertson
News
Robertson injured his shoulder in Sunday's game against the Giants and didn't return.

Robertson has played in just four games for Washington this season, recording four tackles (two solo). Details about whether this will be a long-term issue will likely be released in the near future.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Joshua Holsey
News
Holsey suffered a chest injury during Monday's game against the Eagles and is questionable to return, Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post reports.

Holsey's absence further depletes Washington's depth at cornerback. Only Bashaud Breeland, Kendall Fuller and Quinton Dunbar are left standing.

Paul Richardson
News
Richardson's five-year, $40 million contract with the Redskins includes $12.5 million fully guaranteed at signing, including a $10 million signing bonus, his entire $1.5 million base salary for 2018 and $1 million of his $5 million base salary for 2019, Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington reports.

The contract suggests Richardson will be in Washington for at least two seasons, at which point he'll have collected approximately $17.5 million. He'll provide an element of deep speed for a well-rounded Redskins receiving corps, joining fellow wideouts Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson, tight ends Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis and pass-catching back Chris Thompson (leg). It is fair to wonder if this is the best fit for Richardson, given that new Redskins quarterback Alex Smith is known for relying on short passes. Smith did shed the reputation to some extent last season when he produced career-best marks of 11.9 yards per completion and 8.0 yards per attempt while ranking third in the NFL with 13 completions of 40 or more yards. Of course, Richardson isn't Tyreek Hill, and Reed is no Travis Kelce.

Junior Galette
News
The Redskins have informed Galette he won't be re-signed for the 2018 season, The Washington Post reports.

Galette spent the last three seasons in Washington but was unable to see game action until 2017 after sustaining a pair of Achilles' tears during his first two training camps with the team. The veteran linebacker played all 16 games in a rotational role for the Redskins last season, recording 20 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble. Galette -- who turns 30 on Tuesday -- is unlikely to see much in the form of contracts with multi-year guarantees given his injury history.

Zach Brown
News
The three-year contract that will keep Brown with Washington is worth a maximum of $24 million, the Washington Times reports.

Despite missing the final three games of the 2017 season with assorted injuries, Brown led the team with 127 tackles, the ninth-highest mark in the NFL. The 28-year-old, who also logged 2.5 sacks and two pass deflections, is thus set to reprise his role as a starting middle linebacker for Washington, an assignment that carries with it IDP utility as long as Brown can stay on the field.

Vernon Davis
News
Davis said Alex Smith has improved since the two played together in San Francisco from 2006 to 2012, ESPN.com's John Keim reports.

It isn't exactly a bold assertion, considering Smith is coming off a 2017 campaign in which he established personal bests for passing yards (4,042), passing touchdowns (26) and yards per attempt (8.0), despite sitting out Week 17. While the 33-year-old quarterback likely will appreciate seeing a familiar face in his new locker room, the Redskins are hoping Davis merely will serve as their No. 2 tight end, with Jordan Reed expected to finish his rehab from toe surgery before the start of training camp. Of course, it's anyone's guess how long Reed will actually stay healthy, and Davis will have every chance to rebuild chemistry with Smith in the meantime. The 34-year-old tight end produced 9.9 yards per target in 2016 and 9.4 in 2017, but his volume typically remained modest even when Reed was unavailable.

Dustin Hopkins
News
Hopkins re-signed with the Redskins on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

A hip injury limited Hopkins to eight games in 2017, but he remained effective when healthy for a third straight year, connecting on 14 of 17 field-goal attempts (82.4 percent) and 18 of 19 extra-point tries (94.7 percent). Boasting a career 91.9-percent conversion rate from inside of 50 yards, the 27-year-old Hopkins is one of the more reliable kickers in the league. It's fair to wonder if he'll lose out on some opportunities as the Redskins transition from Kirk Cousins to Alex Smith at quarterback. The change leaves Hopkins somewhere in the middle tier of kickers in the fantasy world, perhaps worthy of consideration at the very end of drafts.

Tyler Catalina
News
The Redskins signed Catalina to a contract Thursday.

The Redskins cut Catalina less than a week ago, but brought him back after T.J. Clemmings (ankle) shifted to injured reserve Thursday. Catalina could see some meaningful snaps in Sunday's game against the Saints with offensive tackles Trent Williams (knee) and Ty Nsekhe (abdomen) uncertain to play this week.

John Kling
No Updates
Tony Bergstrom
News
Bergstrom signed with the Redskins on Monday, The Washington Times reports.

Bergstrom joined the Redskins last season after being let go by the Ravens in October. He went on to appear in nine games and start in three for Washington and keeping him around helps shore up the depth on the offensive line.

Alex Smith
News
Smith officially has been traded from the Chiefs to the Redskins for cornerback Kendall Fuller and a third-round pick in the 2018 draft.

With Patrick Mahomes taking over in Kansas City, the 33-year-old Smith actually ended up with a pretty sweet deal, joining a Washington franchise that's expected to give him a four-year, $94 million contract with $70 million guaranteed. It isn't out of the question that he approaches his career-best stat line from last season, as the Redskins offense is directed by Jay Gruden and features a deep group of pass catchers including Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson, Josh Doctson, Jordan Reed (hamstring, toe), Vernon Davis and Chris Thompson (leg), along with a stud left tackle (Trent Williams) to protect Smith's blindside. The contract suggests that Washington brass doesn't view Smith as a major downgrade from Kirk Cousins.

Pernell McPhee
News
McPhee (shoulder) signed a contract with the Redskins on Monday.

McPhee was released by the Bears in February after battling chronic knee issues over the past few seasons. The 29-year-old landed on injured reserve in December with a shoulder injury but faced a limited snap count through much of the season due to his knees. The veteran is likely to serve in a rotational role for the Redskins behind starting outside linebackers Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Quinton Dunbar
News
The Redskins signed Dunbar to a multi-year extension Monday.

Dunbar's deal is reportedly worth $10.5 million over three years, per ESPN's John Keim. The 25-year-old Florida product graded out as Pro Football Focus' 34th-highest graded cornerback in pass coverage this season while setting career-high marks in tackles (35) and PBUs (eight). Washington's decision to extend his contract signals the team's readiness to let Bashaud Breeland test free agency.

Kyle Kalis
News
Kalis (ankle/back) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Kalis played in Week 16 but was limited in practice this week. His absence will leave Washington a bit thinner along the offensive line for the season finale.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ryan Anderson
News
Anderson (knee) recorded 15 tackles over 14 games in 2017.

Anderson joined a crowded linebacking corps in Washington after being taken in the second round of the 2017 draft and consequently didn't see much playing time during his rookie season. However, the Redskins have a host of linebackers headed for free agency at the end of the league year -- including starters Zach Brown (knee) and Mason Foster (shoulder), but also Trent Murphy, Junior Galette and Will Compton. Depending on who the team ultimately re-signs this offseason, it's possible Anderson could be in store for a more significant role in 2018. He'll first need to recover from a knee injury that Scott Allen of the Washington Post classified as a damaged patella tendon, though there hasn't been any reported concern that the Alabama product is in danger of missing the start of April's offseason training program.
