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