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, who's recovering from a severe quad injury, resumed running and defensive-line drills last month, but the coaching staff is evidently being cautious with his return to full activity. The oft-injured lineman should be on the field in time for training camp, if not sooner.
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 25-year-old slot receiver put up solid marks of 12.0 yards per catch and 7.6 yards per target in 2017, despite dealing with a nagging hamstring injury from the beginning of training camp through December. He's had a healthy offseason heading into the final year of his rookie contract, and he might actually enjoy the switch from Kirk Cousins to Smith, whose 102.8 passer rating on throws to slot receivers over the last five years ranks third in the NFL (min. 30 starts) over that period. With TE Jordan Reed (toe) and RB Chris Thompson (leg) subject to major durability concerns and WRs Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson seemingly best suited for modest-volume roles, Crowder is a clear favorite to lead Washington in targets this upcoming season.
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.
A 2017 third-round pick, Nicholson started six of the eight games he played as a rookie, tallying 24 tackles (18 solo) and one interception across 319 defensive snaps before a concussion ended his season in November. Deshazor Everett struggled as a fill-in starter and now figures to compete with Troy Apke for the No. 3 safety job. Starting free safety D.J. Swearinger was easily the top IDP in the Washington secondary last year, but Nicholson's role could ultimately be more conducive to piling up tackles in 2018.
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 has been rehabbing for the past five months after undergoing knee surgery and it appears as if the veteran is getting very close to returning to full strength. Once training camp rolls around, Williams will finally get an opportunity to take the field with new quarterback Alex Smith.
Kouandjio was waived Tuesday due to a severe quadriceps injury. He's likely stuck on IR all season.
Marshall went down early in training camp last year with a torn patella tendon, one of the worst possible injuries for a football player. He lit up the 2016 combine with a 4.31 40-yard dash at 219 pounds, but the sixth-round pick struggled to stay healthy in college and hasn't fared any better in the NFL. His last productive season was his freshman campaign at Georgia in 2012. Even if he eventually gets healthy, Marshall will be an extreme long shot to make the 53-man roster among a deep group of running backs in Washington.
Still rehabbing from toe surgery, Reed was limited to individual work during OTAs and June minicamp. While Gruden did sound optimistic, he also acknowledged the possibility of not having his oft-injured tight end available at the start of training camp in late July. Reed likely will be eased into practice even if he's cleared, and it would be a surprise to see anything more than a brief appearance or two during the preseason. Entering the second season of a five-year, $46.75 million extension, Reed doesn't have any guaranteed money remaining after 2018 and could thus be a cap casualty next offseason if he can't stay on the field this year.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A third-round pick last year, Moreau played only 59 defensive snaps as a rookie, but led the team in special teams snaps (340). With Norman locked in at left cornerback and Orlando Scandrick (back) expected to man the slot, Moreau could get a look on the right side if Quinton Dunbar struggles during training camp. The more likely scenario features Moreau opening his second NFL season as Washington's No. 4 corner.
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.
Clemmings originally hurt his ankle last October and then lasted about a month before landing on injured reserve in November. However, the exact severity of his condition still hasn't been disclosed, and given the lineman's significant limitations in minicamp, there's no certainty that Clemmings will be back to full health in time for training camp.
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.
The Redskins traded for Alex Smith and Kevin Hogan, but they merely swapped sixth-round picks to acquire the latter. While unlikely to beat out McCoy for the backup job, Hogan might convince the team to keep three quarterbacks if he looks good during training camp. McCoy spent the past three seasons backing up Kirk Cousins, who started all 16 games each year. The 31-year-old hasn't thrown a pass in the regular season since 2015 or started a game since 2014.
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 in a full 16-game season. Gruden expects Doctson to take another step forward in Year 3 with Alex Smith now serving as his starting quarterback. Doctson's 6-foot-2 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. Doctson is healthy at the moment, hoping to stay that way throughout the offseason program and spring/summer practices for the first time in his NFL career.
Derrius Guice and Chris Thompson (leg) are roster locks and 2017 fourth-round pick Samaje Perine also figures to stick around. Kelley may be the early favorite for the fourth spot, but his power-based skill set feels redundant behind Guice and Perine. The 25-year-old Bibbs offers more as a pass catcher, which could help him make a push if the team is worried about Thompson's rehab process or even just his ability to stay healthy moving forward. Byron Marshall (hamstring), Keith Marshall (knee) and undrafted rookie Martez Carter will also be clawing for the final running back spot.
Despite having a clear advantage over his backfield mates in terms of running ability, Guice presumably will need to compete for carries with Perine and Kelley during training camp, while Thompson is a lock for passing downs if his recovery from December surgery stays on track. A fourth-round pick last year, Perine averaged 3.4 yards on 175 carries as a rookie, adding 22 catches for 182 yards on 24 targets, with only two scores on 197 touches. Guice is even more talented than his draft position (No. 59 overall) would seem to suggest, as he might have been taken in the first round if not for concerns about his strong personality and lack of pass-catching experience at LSU.
McGee signed a five-year, $25 million contract last offseason, then had 44 tackles but no sacks in 16 games (10 starts) in 2017. Even if he moves past the groin injury, he'll have a hard time matching last year's total of 432 snaps. The Redskins used their last two first-round picks on defensive linemen, snagging Jonathan Allen (2017) and Da'Ron Payne (2018).
A 2017 fifth-round pick, Sprinkle caught two passes for 13 yards and a touchdown in 11 games his rookie season, playing nearly as many snaps on special teams (125) as offense (126). With Niles Paul leaving for Jacksonville in the offseason, Sprinkle figures to take a step up to No. 3 on the depth chart, behind oft-injured Jordan Reed (toe) and 34-year-old Vernon Davis. The Redskins otherwise have young, undrafted players filling out their depth chart at tight end ahead of training camp.
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 appears buried on the depth chart at first glance, but he could make a push for a roster spot if the Redskins want an insurance policy for passing-down back Chris Thompson, who still hasn't practiced while rehabbing from a severe leg injury. It might ultimately make sense to keep a versatile player like Marshall or Kapri Bibbs as the No. 4 running back ahead of 227-pound Rob Kelley. Thompson and Derrius Guice are obvious roster locks, and Samaje Perine also seems like a strong bet to make the team.
Allen made it through just five games during his rookie season before landing on injured reserve with Lisfranc injury. Together with 2018 first-round pick Da'Ron Payne -- another Alabama product -- a now-healthy Allen should help shore up Washington's run defense after the club surrendered a league-worst 134.1 yards per game on the ground last season.
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 missed 23 games over his four years with the Redskins, never once playing a full 16-game season. He finished 2017 on injured reserve with a neck stinger that sidelined him for the latter half of the year. Despite the durability issues, Lauvao is a starting candidate when healthy, and his signing gives him another opportunity to vie for a spot on the top unit.
Kelley likely will share first-team work once training camp begins, as it isn't even a sure thing the third-year back will make the 53-man roster. Derrius Guice and passing-down back Chris Thompson (leg) are obvious locks, and Samaje Perine's status as a recent fourth-round pick could give him an edge over Kelley. Even if the Redskins ultimately decide to carry four running backs, they might prioritize special teams over offense for the No. 4 spot. Kelley averaged just 3.1 yards on 61 carries last season before an ankle injury ended his campaign after seven games.
Thompson missed the final six games of the 2017 campaign due to a fractured fibula suffered in November. The team hadn't previously outlined a timeline for Thompson's return to action, but Gruden's comments put a positive spin on the running back's recovery and outlook to begin 2018. When healthy, Thompson should act as Washington's primary pass-catching option out of the backfield. However, the addition of second-round rookie Derrius Guice threatens to cut into the workload of Thompson, Samaje Peine and Rob Kelley (ankle) in 2018. Thompson may be least impacted by the addition given Guice's reported shortcomings as a receiver, potentially affording Thompson more playing time than his counterparts.
Scandrick was often forced to operate as the Cowboys' top cover corner in recent seasons but, now a part of the Josh Norman-led Redskins, the veteran seems set to return to a role that's similar to the one he had during his earlier days in Dallas when Scandrick regularly performed as one of the league's best slot corners. However, Scandrick could still get plenty of reps on the outside in 2018 considering how he's also been working with the starters in Washington's base defense this spring. In any event, Scandrick seems set for a significant role with his new team.
A 2017 sixth-round pick, Davis spent most of last season on the practice squad and now figures to compete with Trey Quinn, Brian Quick and a host of undrafted rookies for what likely will be one or two roster spots. The Georgia State University product was one of the stars of last year's combine, posting a 4.44-second 40-yard dash and 41-inch vertical at 6-foot-3, 219 pounds. He could eventually develop into a starter but would be lucky to push Maurice Harris for the No. 4 spot this year.
Ryan Grant held the No. 4 role entering last season and finished the year with 612 offensive snaps and 65 targets after Terrelle Pryor suffered an ankle injury. The Redskins brought in Paul Richardson to replace Pryor for a regular spot in three-wide sets, but they didn't secure a clear replacement for Grant's role. Harris, who has 12 catches through two NFL seasons, will compete with Brian Quick, Trey Quinn and a few other players for depth chart slotting behind Richardson, Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson.
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.
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 (hamstring) and Vernon Davis and pass-catching back Chris Thompson (leg). It's 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 his 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.
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. Keeping him around helps shore up the depth on the offensive line.
With Patrick Mahomes taking over as the starting quarterback in Kansas City, the 33-year-old Smith actually ended up with a pretty favorable deal, joining a Washington franchise that plans to sign him to a four-year, $94 million contract extension that includes $70 million guaranteed. It isn't out of the question that Smith approaches his career-best stat line from last season in 2018, as the Redskins offense is directed by head coach Jay Gruden and features a deep group of pass catchers including Jamison Crowder, the newly signed Paul Richardson, Josh Doctson, Jordan Reed (hamstring/toe), Vernon Davis and Chris Thompson (leg), along with a stud left tackle (Trent Williams) to protect the quarterback's blindside. The terms of the contract suggests that Washington's brass doesn't view Smith as a major downgrade from Kirk Cousins.
McPhee's three-year tenure in Chicago was derailed by a slew of maladies, including a lingering knee issue and a right shoulder injury he suffered last December. He's getting a fresh start in Washington and should provide a nice boost to the Redskins' pass rush, considering he's racked up 31 sacks in 96 career games.
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.
