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.
The only positive was an uptick in play volume, with Crowder's snap share jumping from 62 percent Week 1 all the way to 93 percent Week 2. He nonetheless finished fifth on the team in targets and sixth in receptions, with RB Chris Thompson and TE Jordan Reed doing the heavy lifting -- 19 combined receptions -- for a second time in as many weeks. It'll be hard to trust any Washington wide receiver in a Week 3 home game against the Packers.
Nicholson also forced a fumble that went out of bounds, and he later missed a tackle on Royce Freeman's 24-yard touchdown run. Despite his mixed performance, the second-year pro is locked in as Washington's starter at strong safety, with potential to establish IDP value.
Payne is still expected to miss another week or two based on the initial timeline, but ridding himself of the walking boot is certainly a step in the right direction. The rookie defensive end is expected to contend for snaps from immediately in 2018, but he won't have the full training camp to prepare for his first go around.
Dr. James Andrews will perform the procedure eight days after Guice suffered the injury, giving the rookie second-round pick nearly 13 months to recover before Week 1 in 2019. The Redskins have already placed Guice on injured reserve, leaving Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley to compete for carries on early downs.
Foster was all over the field Sunday, leading the team in tackles and playing 98 percent of the defensive snaps. However, his big play of the game came in the second quarter, when he deflected an Andrew Luck pass that was intercepted by D.J. Swearinger. Foster's increased snap count in Week 2 will help to boost his IDP value, especially if he can consistently produce at the same level.
Norman is locked in as Washington's top cornerback and seems to have stayed healthy throughout the offseason and all of training camp. He didn't have any picks last season, but he made up for it with two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and 64 tackles in 14 games. The 30-year-old is the rare cornerback who combines excellent coverage skills with an ability to pile up tackles.
Williams exited last Sunday's game against Indianapolis with the undisclosed issue and was a limited participant at practice this week. The veteran lineman should take up his usual post at left tackle for the Redskins.
Kouandjio was waived Tuesday due to a severe quadriceps injury. He'll likely be stuck on IR all season unless he negotiates an injury settlement with Washington.
Reed shared the team lead in receptions with Jamison Crowder while checking in second only to fellow tight end Vernon Davis in receiving yardage. Just as important, the University of Florida product has a clean bill of health through three games, certainly quite an accomplishment given his checkered medical past. Reed is also seeing a solid target share thus far from Alex Smith, as he's logged 20 looks through the first three games and posted no less than four catches in any of those contests. Reed will look to continue the solid start to his season against the Saints in a Week 5 Monday night matchup following a Week 4 bye.
McKinzy fills the roster spot created by the Redskins' release of fellow linebacker Alex McCalister. Mcinzy entered the NFL as a rookie free agent in 2016 with the Buccaneers, where hamstring injuries derailed his chances of sticking with the team. The former Auburn standout now receives a second chance at an NFL debut in Washington and will work towards a depth role.
Vigil departed the Redskins' previous game Nov. 30 with the injury, but with the last five days off to heal up, the neck issue doesn't look to be anything that will prevent him from playing Sunday versus the Chargers. The linebacker, who recorded a season-high six tackles last week, could start on the inside this week if either Zach Brown (hamstring/Achilles) or Martrell Spaight (ankle) is unavailable.
The Redskins held Andrew Luck to just 179 passing yards Sunday, in part due to a pair of timely interceptions by Swearinger. The first came off a Mason Foster batted ball with the Colts driving into Washington territory early in the second quarter. The second came in the third quarter and gave the Redskins back the ball on the Colts' 31-yard line, resulting in a Dustin Hopkins field goal.
The 24-year-old has been limited in camp with a hamstring condition, but he's good to go now. Expect Harvey-Clemons to log a decent workload in Thursday's preseason finale against the Ravens, as most of the starters will be sitting.
A quiet preseason isn't any concern for a player who has logged at least 7.5 sacks in each of his seven NFL seasons. Kerrigan averaged just 40.3 tackles the past three seasons, but he's never missed a game and remains a strong bet to hit double digits in the sack department.
After starting eight games at strong safety last season, Everett likely will drop back to a depth role now that Montae Nicholson is healthy. The battle between Apke and Everett isn't of much interest for short-term IDP purposes, but it could be important to the Washington defense if the team hopes to use more three-safety packages this year.
While nothing is set in stone for the start of the regular season, the waiving of Scandrick has clearly opened up an opportunity for Moreau to earn a starting job in camp. For now, however, Moreau seems to be on track to take on the slot cornerback role in the Redskins' secondary.
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 toward the top of the food chain in the offensive lineman world.
The undrafted rookie out of Indiana caught seven passes for 109 yards and a touchdown during the preseason, coming up just a bit short in a roster battle with Trey Quinn and Cam Sims. The Redskins will let Cobbs develop on their practice squad, with potential for a midseason call-up if the team struggles to stay healthy at wide receiver.
Hood saw the field for the first time since fracturing his elbow in December of 2017, replacing Matt Ioannidis (ankle, knee). Looking ahead, Hood is expected to play a backup role when the regular season begins.
With a full practice under his belt, it seems likely that McCoy will be available as the primary backup behind Alex Smith for Week 1. A seasoned veteran, McCoy is considered one of the stronger backup options across the league.
With the team's wideout depth wiped out by injuries, coach Jay Gruden allowed all three of Doctson, Jamison Crowder and Paul Richardson to handle snap shares above 90 percent. Regardless, the passing game once again revolved around Chris Thompson and Jordan Reed, a duo that now accounts for 54 percent of the team's catches, 47 percent of the receiving yards and both receiving touchdowns through two weeks. Doctson does get a favorable matchup Week 3 against a Packers defense that just got eaten up by Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen.
Apke will miss his second consecutive game with the hamstring injury that kept him out of practice this week. The Redskins starting defense should remain unaffected, but the team again will need to fill his role on special teams.
With the placement of Rob Kelley (toe) on injured reserve this week, Perine was expected to earn active status for the first time this season Week 3. Instead, the Redskins promoted Kapri Bibbs from the practice squad Saturday and opted to make him the No. 3 running back behind Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson. At this point, Perine appears to be a persona non grata in Washington.
McGee is still recovering from offseason groin surgery and was expected to remain on the PUP for a while when he was placed on the list back in July. He will be sidelined for the first six weeks of the regular season as a result.
With Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis ahead of him, Sprinkle will find snaps and targets hard to come by. The 2017 fifth-round pick caught just two passes for six yards during the preseason.
Marshall reportedly is recovering from ACL and MCL sprains, rather than the ankle injury that was previously reported. Washington kept him on the initial 53-man roster, which means he'll be eligible to return from injured reserve around midseason if he's healthy. The team will have an open spot once the transaction is made.
Coach Jay Gruden had originally said back in November that the plan was to bring Allen back before the end of the year, but the team is electing to take a cautious route with the 2017 first-round pick and hold him out for the remainder of the season. The former Alabama standout appeared in just five games for the Redskins during his rookie season, recording 10 total tackles and one sack.
Moses suffered a concussion in the first quarter and left Week 3's contest. Ty Nsekhe will serve as Washington's starting right tackle as long as Moses remains sidelined.
Lauvao had yet to practice this week, so this isn't overly surprising. Chase Roullier will slide from center to left guard while Tony Bergstrom starts at center for the Redskins.
For the second time in three games to open the season, Peterson looked like a vintage version of himself. The former Pro Bowler ripped off a 41-yard run and averaged an impressive 6.3 yards per tote, leading the Washington backfield in carries by a comfortable margin. It's difficult to imagine Peterson retaining this level of effectiveness for a full season, but the early returns are hard to argue with thus far. He'll look to rest up and return refreshed following a Week 4 bye for a Week 5 Monday night battle against the Saints.
Quick saw action in 11 contests with Washington in 2017, finishing the campaign with six receptions for 76 yards on eight targets. Though he was unable to secure a roster spot with the team at the conclusion of the preseason, Quick will rejoin the squad ahead of Week 2 with three of Washington's depth receivers banged up heading into Sunday's game against the Colts. If all of Maurice Harris (concussion), Trey Quinn (ankle) and Cam Sims (ankle) are unable to suit up this weekend, Quick would likely slot in as the Redskins' No. 4 wideout.
Kelley suffered a toe injury in Sunday's loss against the Colts and will be required to undergo surgery. Before exiting Week 2, Kelley logged only one offensive snap. With Kelley sidelined for at least the next eight games of the season, Samaje Perine could be in line to receive snaps behind Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson.
The Redskins elected to shut Quinn down for at least the next eight weeks after he required surgery Wednesday to address a high-ankle sprain. Quinn, a rookie seventh-round pick, served as Washington's punt returner in the season-opening win over the Cardinals, but didn't see any involvement in the passing game. With Cam Sims (ankle) also heading to IR earlier this week, the Redskins are suddenly lacking in receiving depth behind starters Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson heading into Week 2.
No Washington running back produced more than one rushing yard in the first half, and the Redskins relied heavily on Thompson as a receiver out of the backfield as they tried to make up a deficit in this one. Owners who grabbed Thompson at a discount on draft day after last year's broken leg are reaping the benefits, especially in PPR formats. Quarterback Alex Smith's tendency to check it down plays right into Thompson's hands.
Wicker will have a short run at making an impression on the Redskins' coaching staff with just over a week remaining before roster cuts. Practice this week and Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens will be his only two opportunities to do so.
Chesson was promoted to Washington's active roster prior to Week 2 but did not record a statistic. He will go through the waiver process and become a free agent if unclaimed.
Davis broke his leg and tore his LCL in Saturday's practice, so Sunday's move to IR is merely a formality. His recovery process will take 9-to-12 months, so there is optimism he will be ready for the beginning of next season. Look for Cam Sims and Simmie Cobbs to compete for Davis' spot at the bottom of the depth chart.
Harris was expected to play after being a full participant in practice this week. He has missed nearly a month due to his concussion and isn't likely to see significant time Sunday.
This transaction was a mere formality since Garner has already been lost for the season due to a torn ACL he sustained in last week's preseason opener.
Floyd was one of two wide receivers signed to bolster the wide receiver in Washington this week, but he's the only one to survive until game day after Breshad Perriman was waived Saturday. With little time to learn the playbook or fit in many drills, it's no surprise Floyd is on the Redskins' inactive list Week 3. In the long run, it'll be interesting to see if he can jump Brian Quick or Maurice Harris, both of whom have experience with coach Jay Gruden's game plans.
Sims suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's season opening victory over the Cardinals. The injury is serious enough to land him on IR for the remainder of the season. Brian Quick was subsequently picked up to replace him as a depth pass-catcher.
Ioannidis has been sidelined since the preseason opener when he suffered a knee injury and was forced to leave the contest. After nearly a month off, Ioannidis looks to be back to practice in full, which bodes well for his status for the start of the regular season.
Brantley, who was carted off the practice field last week, appears to have recovered from his leg injury. The 2017 sixth-rounder stands to immediately return to his role as a depth defensive tackle.
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.
The 32-year-old is expected to back up RT Morgan Moses during the 2018 season.
It's a bit of a surprising move by the Redskins, considering Lanier was impressive in a limited showing last season while registering five sacks over the final seven games. The third-year pro has been dealing with a hip flexor over the past few days, so there is a chance he may end up back on the Redskins' injured reserve list should he clear waivers.
Holsey opened up training camp on the NFI and has continued to battle the foot injury in training camp and preseason. He now won't be eligible to return for another six weeks of the regular season.
The offseason acquisition shook off his multiple injuries to take the field Sunday and make his one catch count. Richardson flashed his downfield chops when he hauled in a 46-yard scoring throw from Alex Smith to cap off a four-play, 75-yard opening drive, giving the Redskins an early 7-0 lead. That catch saved Richardson's fantasy day, as he only saw one other target and failed to come up with it. The scarce opportunity might be an outlier, considering Richardson logged six looks apiece in each of the first two games of the season. He'll look to see more volume against the Saints in a Week 5 Monday night matchup following a Week 4 bye that should allow him some recovery time.
Injuries are not new to Brown, who missed the final three games of last season as the nicks continued to pile up. At the moment, he's only tending to an oblique injury, with pain tolerance to dictate how many snaps he can handle. On the season, he's parlayed 76 percent of the defensive snaps into 14 tackles, good for second on the team behind fellow inside linebacker Mason Foster.
After leading tight ends in offensive reps Week 1, Davis took a back seat to Jordan Reed against the Colts, logging only 26 reps -- 35 percent of all offensive snaps. Reed has been hot to start the season, and he will likely continue to see the majority of tight end targets as long as he remains healthy. Still, Davis should remain a part of the offense, if only just for blocking purposes.
It was a busy day for Hopkins, whose only miss came when he was wide left on a 49-yard attempt. Still, he connected on two other tries from 49 yards out, as well as one from 27 yards away.
Catalina was most recently dealing with a rib injury he suffered in early August, so it's unclear exactly when the shoulder injury occurred. He'll have the chance to become a free agent again should he become healthy and is released by the Redskins.
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. Keeping him around helps shore up the depth on the offensive line.
Smith's yardage total wasn't anything to write home about, but he did average a season-high 11 yards per attempt and completed passes of over 30 yards to Jordan Reed (34), Paul Richardson (46) and Vernon Davis (50). Coach Jay Gruden clearly opted to open up the playbook a bit more than in the first two weeks for an anticipated showdown with Aaron Rodgers, and Smith demonstrated his ability to make plays downfield without the wealth of weapons he had at his disposal in Kansas City last season. The veteran quarterback will look to build on Sunday's effort with what should be another offensively aggressive gameplan in a Week 5 Monday night battle against the Saints following a Week 4 bye.
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.
The Redskins seem to have settled on their Week 1 cornerback alignment, with Dunbar and Josh Norman starting outside while Fabian Moreau mans the slot. Dunbar didn't show a ton of IDP potential last season, managing 35 tackles across 373 defensive snaps and 224 special-teams snaps. Of course, he could get take a big step forward in tackle production if opponents determine that he's the weak link of the Washington secondary.
The 2017 second-round pick missed the final two weeks of his rookie season with a knee injury, finishing with 15 tackles and no sacks in 14 games. He seems to have made a full recovery long before training camp, but Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith are still locked in as the starting outside linebackers, with Pernell McPhee likely serving as the top backup. Anderson is merely hoping to make his case for a rotational role.
