This will be the third consecutive season where Taylor doesn't play a regular season snap. He last played five games for Cleveland in 2014, making 10 tackles.
Smith has gotten off to a strong start to the season as the starting strong-side linebacker, having recorded a sack in each of the Redskins' first two games. So long as he stays healthy, Smith should continue to be an active part of Washington's pass rush.
Breeland had been hampered by a groin injury throughout training camp, but his absence from Wednesday's injury report indicates he is on track to take the field in Week 1. Barring any setbacks, look for him to start at cornerback Sunday.
Crowder's biggest play was a 21-yard wide receiver screen on the Redskins' opening drive, but he was relatively quiet for the remainder of the afternoon. The No. 2 wideout could see an increase in targets with Jordan Reed's (chest) status up in the air for the week as the offense will be left with a pass-catching void should he be ruled out.
After a six-reception debut with the Redskins in Week 1, Pryor took a backseat offensively Sunday, but his 52 offensive reps still led all Washington wideouts. Jordan Reed's (chest) injury could leave the Redskins with a void in the passing game this week, which may lead to a rise in targets for Pryor. Still, the veteran has yet to haul in his first touchdown in a Redskin uniform, something he'll hope to change Sunday night against the Raiders.
Nicholson received the start in Sunday's win over the Rams, but mainly operated in the nickel package before exiting with the injury. It's unclear just how severe the injury is at this point, but if the 21-year-old's status for Week 3 is in doubt the Redskins are likely to promote Fish Smithson from the practice squad, since backup safety Deshazor Everett (knee) could also be sidelined.
Foster injured his shoulder while picking off a pass to seal the Redskins' win over the Rams in Week 2. The linebacker is still holding out hope that a second opinion will reveal his injury isn't quite as severe, but the Redskins seem destined to be without his services in Week 3. Foster's likely absence could open up a starting role for rookie second-round pick Ryan Anderson.
Norman is dealing with an AC joint sprain and there is no further information on the severity of the sprain, but the Redskins are likely to be cautious this week, regardless. The veteran corner still played 47 of 50 defensive snaps Sunday, recording six tackles (five solo) and forcing two fumbles.
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's deal will draw him out of Dallas and reportedly will be worth more than $21 million over the course of its four years. The defensive tackle led the Cowboys' defensive line in tackles with 41 in 2016, and also added 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and eight quarterback pressures. He should provide a significant boost for a Redskins' front seven that surrendered 119.8 rushing yards per game last season, good for 24th in the league.
Reed didn't join his teammates for stretching prior to drills but eventually made his way to the field, sans pads, where he was a mere spectator. There's a chance he remains sidelined all week as he tends to a chest contusion, with his Week 3 designation Friday forecasting his ability to play Sunday night against the Raiders. If he begins to trend toward the inactive side of the ledger, the Redskins will turn to the trusted Vernon Davis to fill in at tight end.
The veteran corner has been battling this knee injury since the beginning of training camp. Because of his designation, Hall will be unable to return until Week 7, but being placed on PUP instead of injured reserve is a reason for optimism.
Swearinger was dealing with some back issues earlier in the week but it didn't seem to slow the safety down on Sunday as he recorded the fourth most tackles on the team. The Redskins are dealing with a plethora of injuries in the secondary this week, including Montae Nicholson (shoulder) and Deshazor Everett (knee). Combine that with Su'a Cravens (personal) placement on the reserve/left squad list and suddenly the Redskins are looking very thin at safety, which means they may rely on Swearinger more than they already do in the coming weeks.
Kerrigan played in 37 of the team's 50 defensive snaps Sunday and still managed to up his sack total to 1.5 through the first two games of the season. Through that pair of contests, Kerrigan has been the third-most productive linebacker for the Redskins behind Zach Brown and Mason Foster.
A 2011 fifth-round selection, Carter has bounced around the league as a special teams contributor and depth linebacker, recording 26 tackles in 62 regular-season games. He'll likely be buried on the defensive depth chart in Washington, with special teams once again representing his best chance to contribute.
It's relatively unknown where exactly Everett injured his knee Sunday, but the injury doesn't appear to be too serious. Given the team's response, Everett projects to play in Week 3.
This injury is a big reason why he slipped to the third round in the 2017 draft. Moreau made the switch to cornerback during his college career, and he's shown he's athletic enough to hold his own. Once healthy, expect him to challenge for a backup defensive back position and specialist role.
After signing a one-year deal with the Redskins in the spring of 2016, Hood appeared in all 16 games this past season, starting in 14 and cranking out 33 tackles and three passes defensed. With the release of incumbent starter Ricky Jean-Francois, he could be in the mix for starting duties ahead of the 2017 campaign.
Spaight, who has been hampered by a hamstring injury throughout camp, appears to be back to full health. He will presumably back up Zach Brown and Mason Foster at inside linebacker to start the season.
McCoy had to wait until halfway through the third quarter to take the field Sunday but made good on his limited reps, leading a fourth-quarter comeback complete with two scoring drives -- including a nine-yard touchdown pass to tight end Derek Carrier. Firmly in control of the No. 2 spot on the depth chart, McCoy should be locked in for quite a bit of playing time in Thursday's preseason finale, as most of the starters are expected to rest.
Doctson closed the playing-time gap on Ryan Grant, whose lone catch (on two targets and 30 snaps) was a game-winning touchdown from 11 yards out. Grant held a 37-20 snap advantage over Doctson the previous week while catching four passes for 61 yards on six targets. It seems the two will continue to battle for looks behind Terrelle Pryor and Jamison Crowder, though Grant has clearly outplayed Doctson through two games. Neither figures to have fantasy value unless he can clearly beat out the other for the No. 3 role. Even in that situation, the winner likely would have inconsistent involvement in an offense that also features pass-catching back Chris Thompson and tight ends Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis.
The rookie was leaned on after Rob Kelley (ribs) was forced from the game. However, Perine did little against the Rams. Kelley's status leading into Washington's Week 3 matchup against Oakland will be important to monitor for fantasy owners. If Kelley misses time, Perine projects to receive the bulk of early-down work for the Redskins.
Sprinkle is buried on the depth chart at tight end, resulting in him being a healthy scratch Week 1. He's unlikely to see much action unless the team faces injuries at the tight end position.
Injuries have kept Paul on the sideline for the majority of the past two seasons, but the veteran tight end is finally back in the fold for Washington. With Jordan Reed (toe) returning from the Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, Paul could see a slight decline in reps over the next few weeks, but the 28-year-old's ability to handle multiple roles should continue to create opportunities throughout the season.
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.
It wasn't long ago that Allen was universally regarded as a top-five pick, but positional ambiguity and poor athletic testing complicated his projection a bit. A star pass rusher on the edge for Alabama, at this point Allen is built more like a defensive tackle (6-foot-3, 286 pounds), and certainly had the athletic testing of one. His 5.0-second 40, 30-inch vertical, 108-inch broad jump and 7.49-second three-cone are good for a defensive tackle, but not for the end position he primarily played at Alabama. But even if Allen can't play outside in the NFL, he should be a solid tackle for Washington.
Moses was already fighting through the injury coming into Sunday before re-injuring it at the end of the third quarter, but the good news is that he only missed a single play. The 26-year-old's status won't be clear until practice later this week, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Redskins express caution in dealing with the lingering injury.
Grant didn't live up to the hype this Sunday after his Week 1 performance -- four receptions for 61 yards -- as he only managed two looks from Kirk Cousins. After almost doubling No. 4 wideout Josh Doctson's reps last week, Grant's 30 offensive snaps were almost matched by Doctson (29). If Grant's lackluster performances continue, they team may opt to go with the younger Doctson as the No. 3 option.
Fuller dropped into the third round of this year's draft because of the knee injury he suffered last year in college, but had been given first-round grades by several teams had he owned a clean bill of health. Fortunately, he participated in minicamp last month without setbacks, and declared himself healthy afterword. Fuller is fully capable of playing on the outside, but with Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland locking down the top corner jobs, Fuller will be tasked to handle nickleback duties his rookie year. However, he will still have to earn the job in training camp.
Quick failed to make an impact in his first game as a Redskin, logging reps as the fifth wideout. It appears as if the team is comfortable trusting young receivers like Josh Doctson and Ryan Grant ahead of the veteran, which may leave Quick with little fantasy value this season.
Given that Kelley missed the second half of Sunday's 28-21 win over the Rams, his ability to practice in any capacity is a major positive. He escaped without a broken rib and is instead dealing with a cartilage injury, though coach Jay Gruden did say Monday that there's some chance the pain will be too great for Kelley to play. Gruden also gave his lead back credit for toughness, saying that he expects Kelley will at least give it a shot Sunday against Oakland. While it's possible the medical staff has other plans, Kelley is on the right track after practicing Wednesday. Should he end up missing the game, Samaje Perine will fill in as the early-down thumper, with Week 2 standout Chris Thompson likely also handling an expanded role.
Anderson was competing among quite a few candidates to provide receiver depth on the final roster, but the Texans ultimately opted to let him go. Should he clear waivers, he figures to be a prime candidate for landing on the team's practice squad.
After rushing for a seven-yard score to start the second quarter, Thompson broke a 61-yard touchdown run with just 1:44 left in the first half. He wasn't as effective in the passing game as usual, but the third-down back has now found the end zone three times through two weeks, and his role could be extended moving forward. Rob Kelley (ribs) left Sunday's game, and he was unable to return. If Kelley misses time, Thompson could see more snaps, and especially if rookie Samaje Perine struggles. Perine rushed 21 times for just 67 yards (3.2 yards per carry) Sunday.
Brown wasn't expected to play as he's likely the last running back on Washington's depth chart. Barring injuries at the position, he likely won't see much action early in the season.
Young is headed into his second year in the NFL. He played in six games last season in a special teams role -- recording one tackle. When he recovers, there's no guarantee he stays in Washington.
The sixth-round pick failed to make the 53-man roster but will get to spend the season with the team as a member of the practice squad. Head coach Jay Gruden was impressed with the rookie throughout the preseason. "Robert has done some good things, not just catching the ball but blocking," Gruden noted. Should the Redskins endure injuries at wideout, it wouldn't be surprising to see Davis get the call up midway through the year.
Harris was competing among a crowded group of receivers for the final role on the depth chart, but ultimately failed to make the cut. He will look for a new opportunity elsewhere if he does not land on the team's practice squad.
After turning the ball over three times in Week 1, Cousins took care of the football against the Rams and led the Redskins to the overtime victory. While it was another poor fantasy showing from Cousins, this could prove to be a buy-low spot. Washington has the weapons to succeed, and next week's matchup against Oakland could turn into a high-scoring shootout.
Murphy tore his ACL during Thursday's preseason opener against the Ravens. The 2014 second-rounder is set to hit free agency when the 2017 season comes to a close, so it's a shame he wasn't able to prove his worth in a contract year.
Compton has started for the Redskins much of the past two seasons and appears set to handle another large workload this year. He has also recovered from the knee injury that afflicted him late last season, giving him a clean bill of health heading into 2017.
Lanier dealt with a lower leg injury throughout camp but appears to be in full health entering Week 1. He projects to provide depth at defensive end to start the year.
Galette's appearance at practice Wednesday bodes well for his availability for the season opener. The Redskins hope Galette can be a significant piece to their defensive puzzle this season, so it would not be surprising if they keep Galette limited throughout the remainder of the preseason.
Brown has now led the Redskins in tackles in each of their first two regular-season games, showing that the team made the right decision in starting Brown at inside linebacker. With Brown seeing a robust workload (49 of the team's 50 defensive snaps Sunday), he should continue to rack up impressive numbers in the coming weeks.
Davis has been nonexistent through the first two games of the season but with Jordan Reed (chest) currently day-to-day, the veteran tight end could be in for an uptick in production this week. Look for more updates to come once the Redskins release their practice reports later on in the week.
Hopkins, who has struggled from distance his entire career, missed a 51-yard attempt off the right upright on Sunday, making it his first miss of the season. However, he was able to connect from both 41 and 22 yards earlier in the game. The Redskins offense has stumbled out of the gate this season, which hasn't left the kicker with many scoring opportunities through the first two weeks.
Bowen was waived over the weekend with an unspecified ankle injury, but after going unclaimed by the other 31 teams, he'll stick around in the Washington organization while he recovers.
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.
After suffering a stinger in his neck/shoulder area during the preseason opener, Anderson wasn't certain to be ready for the start of the regular season, but he evidently performed well enough during his limited participation in practices this week to receive clearance for his NFL debut. Though he'll suit up Sunday, Anderson won't have a clear path to snaps with Ryan Kerrigan, Preston Smith and Junior Galette ahead of him on the depth chart at outside linebacker.
