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 is tending to a sprained AC joint in his shoulder. If he isn't able to play, Deshazor Everett will likely get the starting nod.
Foster dislocated his shoulder last week against the Rams, but he had it popped back in on the sidelines and ultimately returned to the game sporting a harness on the afflicted area. If he isn't given the green light to play Sunday, look for Will Compton to assume an expanded role.
An AC joint sprain rendered Norman a limited participant in practice all week, but he appears prepared to play through any lingering pain by the time the 8:30 p.m. EDT kickoff arrives. Norman, who has logged nine tackles, three pass defensed and two forced fumbles through the first two games, will have his work cut out for him in Week 3 as he looks to help contain the Raiders' dynamic wideout duo of Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree.
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.
A limited practice participant throughout the week, Reed said he has full range of motion in his shoulder but is still dealing with significant pain. Bothered by rib and sternum injuries -- in addition to the toe issue that's required management since this summer -- Reed probably won't be at his best even if he's able to play and handles his usual snap workload. He looks like a very risky option Sunday even if he does play.
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.
Everett was diagnosed with a sprained MCL earlier this week, but it doesn't look as though he is going to miss any game action. The 25-year-old will likely be back at starting strong safety against the Raiders on Sunday, barring a setback.
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 limped off the field and is still being evaluated by team doctors. Look for more updates to come.
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.
Perine failed to fully capitalize on Kelley's absence in the second half of Sunday's 27-20 win over the Rams, managing just 67 yards on 21 carries. It sounds as though Kelley plans to play through the pain in Week 3, but any limitations could allow the rookie to play a major role on early downs. Chris Thompson is locked in as the passing-down back and thus makes for a safer fantasy option than either of his backfield mates.
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.
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.
Dealing with a rib cartilage injury, Kelley was limited throughout the week of practice after exiting in the second quarter of last week's 27-20 win over the Rams. He had said on Friday that he expected to play and may wear a protective vest, but it sounds like that outlook has changed. While this report doesn't rule him out, he looks too risky for fantasy players who need to set a lineup before the game's Sunday night 8:30 pm ET start time.
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.
The talented defender went down with a knee injury during Thursday's preseason loss and will require further testing. Considering that Murphy is already facing a four-game suspension to start the season, it's unclear whether Thursday's injury will cause him to miss additional time. Preston Smith should continue to see time at the strongside linebacker spot in Murphy's absence.
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.
Reed seems to be gearing up to play through the pain, but he'll likely come down to a game-time decision, which leaves fantasy owners in a precarious spot due to the Redskins' 8:30 p.m. ET kickoff. Jared Cook is a solid fallback option if Reed can't go, but the Oakland tight end is already owned in many leagues. Davis is freely available in the vast majority of formats, and he was uber-efficient with his 59 targets last season, hauling in 44 for 583 yards (5.9 YPT) and two scores. Davis only has one catch this season, but he averaged 3.5 receptions for 47 yards in the four games Reed missed last year.
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.
