Position Listing
Kenny Hilliard
News
Hilliard signed a reserve/future contract with the Redskins on Monday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Hilliard spent three days on the Redskins 53-man roster as injuries decimated the team's running backs, but he was inactive for his lone game with the team. The 26-year-old joined the practice squad shortly thereafter and will have a full spring in the team's offseason program to prepare for training camp.

Demetrius Rhaney
News
Rhaney and the Redskins agreed to a contract Tuesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

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.

Phillip Taylor
News
Taylor (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

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.

Injury
Quadriceps - Injured Reserve
Preston Smith
News
Smith tallied 42 tackles (31 solo) and eight sacks in 16 starts for the Redskins in 2017.

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 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.

Bashaud Breeland
News
The Redskins will let Breeland test free agency after the season concludes, JP Finlay of NBCSports Washington reports.

Breeland has earned just $3.3 million during his four years in Washington. The 2014 fourth-round pick has 48 tackles, 16 pass breakups and one pick-six in 14 games this season. He's emphasized that his forthcoming foray into free agency will be about respect as well as money, as he's always seen himself capable of serving as a team's No.1 corner.

Jamison Crowder
News
Crowder, who hauled in three of his seven targets for 25 yards in Week 17's loss to the Giants, ended the season with 66 receptions for 789 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games.

Crowder burst onto the scene in 2016 as a dynamic scoring threat for Washington, reaching the end zone seven times last season. While his reception totals were almost identical -- 67 receptions in 2016 -- Crowder failed to find the end zone as often this year and didn't make the fantasy leap that many were projecting for him at the beginning of the season. Still, Crowder managed some outstanding weekly performances, recording over 120 receiving yards in two games. The offseason provides another opportunity for Crowder to grow into the No. 1 wideout role in Washington's offense as he enters his final season under contract.

Otha Peters
No Updates
Terrelle Pryor
News
The Redskins placed Pryor (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

The transaction became official one day after Pryor underwent arthroscopic surgery to fix the ankle issue, which has hampered him for much of the season. The injury -- along with Pryor's penchant for dropping passes -- resulted in his unexpected fall down the depth chart before the Redskins decided to shut him down for good, with the wideout finishing his lone campaign in Washington with 20 receptions for 240 yards and a touchdown. He'll likely head elsewhere upon hitting free agency this offseason and could have some bounce-back appeal if he proves healthy and lands in a favorable passing environment.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Montae Nicholson
News
Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Nicholson (concussion) suffered a setback Wednesday that prevented the safety from practicing, Brian McNally of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

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.

Injury
Concussion - Injured Reserve
Arthur Jones
News
The Redskins placed Jones (shoulder) on injured reserve Saturday.

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.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Mason Foster
News
Foster (shoulder) is officially active for Monday night's game against the Eagles.

Foster earned the questionable tag after putting in limited practice sessions this week but will give it a go Monday. The 28-year-old looked good in his return to action in Week 6 and had the team's bye week to further recuperate from a Week 2 shoulder dislocation.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
LeShun Daniels
News
The Redskins placed Daniels (hand) on injured reserve Saturday.

Daniels fractured his hand at practice Thursday and was lost for the season. The 22-year-old is the fifth Washington running back to land on injured reserve this season. The Redskins signed Kenny Hilliard to the 53-man roster to provide additional depth out of the backfield.

Injury
Hand - Injured Reserve
Josh Norman
News
Norman recorded 64 tackles (47 solo), nine passes defensed and one forced fumble across 14 games in 2017. Norman said of his 2017 performance, "I feel like it was really solid," Michael Phillips of the Richmond-Times Dispatch reports. "Really solid. I know when you look back at it overall, when you look at the interceptions category ... I didn't have any interceptions. Shoot, when they don't throw you the ball to your side, how many opportunities or chances can you get?"

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.

Trent Williams
News
Williams had knee surgery performed by Dr. Robin West on Friday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

Williams battled this injury all season, but without playoff hope, the Redskins have shut him down since Week 15. His rehab will take 5-6 months, so although he may miss some OTAs, he should be ready for training camp.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Arie Kouandjio
News
Kouandjio signed a contract with the Redskins on Saturday, Brian McNally of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

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.

Keith Marshall
News
Marshall (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

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.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Terrell McClain
News
McClain (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

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.

Jordan Reed
News
Redskins head coach Jay Gruden revealed Wednesday that Reed (hamstring) could require toe surgery, Kimberley A. Martin of The Washington Post reports.

It was a hamstring injury that had sidelined the tight end for the Redskins' past six games before he was eventually shut down for the season and moved to injured reserve earlier this week. While the hamstring remains the primary concern for Reed, surgery to address a more minor toe issue could help him get ahead of a potential setback that might crop up in 2018. Even if Reed enters the upcoming campaign with a clean bill of health, history suggests it won't be long before he's back in the trainer's room tending to an injury of some sort.

Injury
Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Zach Vigil
News
Vigil hade 59 tackles (41 solo) and two interceptions in seven games for the Redskins in 2017.

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.

DeAngelo Hall
News
Hall (knee) is active for Sunday's tilt against the Saints.

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.

D.J. Swearinger
News
Swearinger recorded 79 tackles (61 solo), 10 passes defensed, four interceptions, one forced fumble and 0.5 sacks across 16 contests this season.

Swearinger's first season in the nation's capital was one for the books, as the safety notched career-highs in almost every statistical category. He was second on the team in tackles and provided a consistent presence in Washington's secondary, as his 1,095 defensive reps were the most on the defensive unit.

Josh Harvey-Clemons
News
Harvey-Clemons suffered a back injury during Sunday's game against the Seahawks and is questionable to return.

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.

Ryan Kerrigan
News
Kerrigan recorded 46 tackles (34 solo), 13 sacks, three forced fumble and one interception returned for a touchdown across 16 games this season.

Kerrigan was selected to his second-straight and third overall Pro Bowl after another season anchoring the Redskins' defense. His 13 sacks tie him for fourth-best in the league and his 46 tackles were the most since the 2014 season. Kerrigan will be 30 heading into next season, but the linebacker has showed no signs of slowing down over the past few years, as the veteran logged 822 defensive snaps during this past season.

Chris Carter
News
Carter (lower leg) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

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.

Injury
Lower Leg - Injured Reserve
Tavaris Barnes
News
Barnes injured his right knee during Thursday's preseason game against the Redskins, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

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.

Keenan Reynolds
News
Reynolds was released by the Ravens as part of roster cuts Friday.

Despite a year on the Ravens' practice squad in 2016, Reynolds failed to make enough of an impact during the preseason to earn a roster spot in his second professional season. Reynolds could be a practice squad candidate again with Baltimore in 2017.

Deshazor Everett
News
Everett recorded 62 tackles (41 solo), five pass defensed and one forced fumble across 14 games this season.

Everett's season got off to a slow start after he suffered a sprained MCL in mid-September, but the 25-year-old was able to make a full recovery, logging two double-digit tackle performances in the final four weeks of the season. Washington will have a crowded secondary with Su'a Cravens expected to return to the team next season, which could leave Everett with less opportunities.

Tress Way
No Updates
Fabian Moreau
News
Moreau (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Moreau suffered this injury in Week 9's matchup against the Seahawks, but the rest of the Redskins' cornerbacks are healthy again, so he will return to his strict special-teams regimen.

Brandon Scherff
News
Scherff (knee) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Cowboys.

Scherff was again on the injury report heading into Week 13 yet will once again suit up. Look for the 25-year-old to resume his usual workload on the offensive line, assuming he avoids any setbacks.

Ziggy Hood
News
Hood was diagnosed Tuesday with a fractured right elbow and won't play in the Redskins' season finale against the Giants, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

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.

Injury
Elbow - Questionable for the start of training camp
Martrell Spaight
News
Spaight posted 75 tackles (45 solo) and two pass breakups in 15 games with the Redskins in 2017.

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.

Colt McCoy
News
McCoy did not record a single pass during the 2017 season.

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 -- he signed a deal through the 2018 season.

Josh Doctson
News
Doctson, who hauled in four of his 10 targets for 37 yards in Week 17's loss to the Giants, ended the season with 35 receptions for 502 yards and six touchdowns in 16 games.

Perhaps the best stat for the second-year pro was the fact that he played in every single contest this season after only playing in two games his rookie year due to a torn Achilles. Although he wasn't as involved to start the year, Doctson emerged as a solid No. 2 option on the depth chart for the Redskins after Terrelle Pryor failed to live up to expectations. The 6-2 wideout provided the Redskins with a big target in the red zone, as his six touchdown receptions led the team.

Kapri Bibbs
News
Bibbs carried 12 times for 47 yards and caught eight of nine targets for an additional 53 yards during Sunday's 18-10 loss to the Giants.

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.

Nick Sundberg
No Updates
Samaje Perine
News
Perine, who totaled three yards on two rushing attempts in Week 17's loss to the Giants, finished the season with 603 rushing yards and one touchdown on 175 attempts to go along with 22 receptions for 182 yards and one touchdown.

It was an up-and-down year for the fourth-round selection, who figured to compete for the starting running back role out of the gate to start the 2017 season. However, things did not go exactly to plan, as Perine found himself buried on the depth chart behind Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson for the first 10 weeks of the season. After both Kelley (ankle) and Thompson (lower leg) suffered season-ending injuries, Perine finally got his opportunity, recording over 100 yards rushing in his first two starts. While he cooled off to end the season, Perine will head into the offseason once again contending for the starting role.

Stacy McGee
News
McGee totaled 44 tackles (24 solo) in 16 games for Washington in 2017.

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.

Cameron Jefferson
No Updates
Jeremy Sprinkle
News
Sprinkle recorded two receptions for 13 yards and a touchdown across 11 games in his rookie season.

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.

Niles Paul
News
Paul finished his 2017 season with 13 receptions for 94 yards across 14 games.

Paul was an afterthought in the Redskins' passing attack this season, especially considering starting tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) only managed to play six games. Paul now hits the open market after spending the past six seasons in Washington. In 2014 he seemed poised to compete for the starting tight end role after posting 507 receiving yards but has since fallen off the map due to various injuries. It seems unlikely the Redskins will have much interest in retaining him given the slew of other options they have on the roster at the moment.

Alex Balducci
News
The Jets claimed Balducci off waivers Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

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.

Byron Marshall
News
The Redskins placed Marshall (hamstring) on injured reserve Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports.

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.

Injury
Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Jonathan Allen
News
Allen (foot) will not return this season.

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.

Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve
Morgan Moses
News
Moses will undergo surgery on one of his ankles Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

The Redskins are expected to provide a recovery timetable for Moses once the procedure is completed, but it's at least encouraging that he won't require surgery on both ankles, as he was plagued by soreness for a large portion of the past season. So long as Moses' recovery doesn't extend deep into training camp, he'll have a good chance to open the 2018 campaign as the Redskins' starting right tackle.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ryan Grant
News
Grant recorded career-highs across the board with 45 receptions for 573 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games this season.

Grant has been a depth option at wideout for the Washington over the previous three seasons but the wideout saw a spike in productivity in 2017, ending the year as the team's No. 3 wideout. Grant could not have picked a much better time to have the best season of his career, as he now enters the market as an unrestricted free agent. The Redskins have their core targets of Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson and Jordan Reed all under contract for next season, but would be wise to pursue Grant given the value he showed this season as the No. 3 wideout.

Kendall Fuller
News
Fuller finished the 2017 season with 55 tackles (43 solo), four interceptions and a forced fumble in 16 games for the Redskins.

Fuller came on strong in his sophomore season and totaled 10 passes defensed and started six games. Bashaud Breeland is likely to head elsewhere in free agency, Quinton Dunbar recently signed a multi-year extension and veteran Josh Norman is signed through 2020, which likely leaves Fuller to slot in as Washington's primary nickel cornerback in 2018.

Shawn Lauvao
News
Lauvao (neck) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

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.

Injury
Neck - Injured Reserve
Brian Quick
News
Quick recorded six receptions for 76 yards across 11 contests in 2017.

After recording a career-high 41 receptions with the Rams in 2016, it was believed that Quick could become a solid third or fourth wideout for the Redskins this season but those plans did not live up to fruition. Quick never became a reliable target in Washington's passing attack, receiving only eight targets on the season. Now a free agent, the veteran is unlikely to garner much interest for the Redskins even if he takes a major pay cut.

Rob Kelley

Head coach Jay Gruden said Kelley (ankle/knee) was rarely healthy during the 2017 season, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports. "Rob Kelley, his second game of the year against the Rams, he almost had 100 yards and that's when he hurt his ankle," Gruden relayed. "He never really was quite the same, but when healthy Rob Kelley was very good. Unfortunately, he played in about three or four games not healthy and he just kept returning that ankle and we had to put him on IR."

Gruden's comments don't jibe with reality, at least regarding Kelley's first issue of the campaign. In Week 2, Kelley's departure was blamed on a rib cartilage injury, which forced one DNP before a return Week 4. During the latter contest, he sustained the initial ankle sprain and continued to aggravate it until his placement on injured reserve midseason. When the Redskins ruled Kelley out for the season, two injuries were to blame: a high-ankle sprain and a Grade 1 or 2 MCL sprain. Kelley was one of many dominoes to fall in the backfield during the year, as all of Chris Thompson (fibula), Byron Marshall (hamstring), LeShun Daniels (hand) and Keith Marshall (knee) landed on IR. With Thompson, Samaje Perine, Kelley and Kapri Bibbs under contract for the 2018 season, it'll be interesting to see how the pecking order breaks down during the offseason program.

Alex McCalister
News
McCalister (hamstring) reverted to injured reserve per the official NFL transaction log.

McCalilster was waived/injured by the Eagles during final roster cuts Saturday and ultimately cleared waivers. He will now remain on the team's IR unless the two parties can reach an injury settlement.

Chris Thompson
News
At this stage, Thompson (lower leg) remains on pace to be ready for training camp. "As players, we're known to try and rush and get back on that field as quick as we possibly can," Thompson noted. "We have some time before training camp and OTA's coming around, so I'm just going to be smart and trust the trainers and go from there."

Thompson is still using crutches after fracturing his fibula on Nov. 19, but with his expected recovery time in the four-to-six month range, it's understandable that he plans to be in line to be a go when training camp rolls around. In 10 games prior to his injury, the 27-year-old recorded 64 carries for 294 yards and two TDs and caught 39 of his 54 targets for 510 yards and four TDs. Thompson is signed through the 2019 season and figures to remain a key cog in the Washington backfield next season, with his pass-catching ability giving him strong PPR utility, while the 5-foot-8, 191-pounder presumably works in tandem with power backs Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley, among others.

Lou Young
News
Young was signed by the Redskins on Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Young appeared in six games with the Panthers last season but recorded just one tackle. He'll compete throughout the remainder of offseason activities for a depth spot at cornerback for Washington.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for the start of training camp
Robert Davis
News
Davis failed to record a reception in the one game he played for the Redskins in 2017.

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.

Maurice Harris
News
Harris recorded four receptions for 62 yards and one touchdown across six games in 2017.

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).

Kirk Cousins
News
Cousins completed 20 of 37 pass attempts for 158 yards and three interceptions during Sunday's 18-10 loss to the Giants. He also scored a 12-yard touchdown on his lone carry of the game.

Cousins just 54 percent of his passes and threw three interceptions for the first time this season, including one in his own end on the first possession that led to a Giants touchdown. He was enjoying a tremendous campaign as recently as Wee 12 but finished with just two games over 200 passing yards and an 8:8 touchdown-turnover ratio over his final five contests. While he enjoyed a career year in 2016, Cousins regressed dramatically in terms of yardage this season and slightly so in terms of turnovers. He'll now become a free agent once again, and it remains to be seen if Washington wishes to sign him to a big contract, apply the franchise tag once again or explore other options under center.

Dare Ogunbowale
News
Ogunbowale was promoted Friday from the Redskins' practice squad to the active roster.

With Samaje Perine (groin) and LeShun Daniels (hand) both suffering injuries during Thursday's practice, Ogunbowale and Kapri Bibbs were the only running backs on the field for Friday's session. With Daniels already ruled out and Perine looking shaky, Ogunbowale could step right in behind Bibbs as the No. 2 back for Sunday's game against the Broncos. The undrafted rookie out of Wisconsin was a fringe NFL prospect, but he did show some aptitude in the passing game with 60 receptions for 507 yards in his final two collegiate seasons.

Manasseh Garner
News
The Redskins promoted Garner from the practice squad to their 53-man roster Wednesday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

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.

Trent Murphy
News
Murphy (knee, suspension) will be sent for an MRI, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

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.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Matthew Ioannidis
News
Ioannidis exited Sunday's 18-10 loss to the Giants with a knee injury.

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.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Will Compton
News
Compton (foot) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

Compton suffered a Lisfranc sprain in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, bringing his season to end. The veteran linebacker played almost exclusively on special teams to begin the season, but started the past two games against the Seahawks and Vikings after Mason Foster (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve. In nine games this season, Compton recorded 19 tackles (13 solo), three pass defensed and one interception. Look for Martrell Spaight and Josh Harvey-Clemons to see increased defensive snaps from here on out with Compton sidelined.

A.J. Francis
News
The Redskins signed Francis to a contract Tuesday, ESPN 980 Washington reports.

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.

Chase Roullier
News
Roullier (hand) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

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.

Ty Nsekhe
News
Nsekhe (knee) didn't return to Sunday's game against the Giants, Kimberley A. Martin of The Washington Post reports.

The nature and severity of this injury aren't known, but expect an update soon to address whether this will be a long-term ailment.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Anthony Lanier
News
Lanier (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

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.

Pete Robertson
News
Robertson injured his shoulder in Sunday's game against the Giants and didn't return.

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.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Joshua Holsey
News
Holsey suffered a chest injury during Monday's game against the Eagles and is questionable to return, Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post reports.

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

Spencer Long
News
Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Long will require season-ending surgery to repair a quadriceps tendon and will be placed on injured reserve.

Long had previously sat out Sunday's loss to the Saints while contending with soreness in both of his knees, but the center's quad injury was apparently a more serious issue. Making matters worse for the Redskins, Long's replacement in the starting lineup, Chase Roullier, injured his hand in the contest, leaving his status in peril for the Week 12 matchup with the Giants. Since Long wasn't due to return for that contest, he'll be shut down for good, allowing the Redskins to sign a healthy center in Demetrius Rhaney, according to John Keim of ESPN.com.

Injury
Quadriceps - Injured Reserve
Junior Galette
News
Galette (hamstring) was an active participant during Wednesday's practice, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

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.

Zach Brown
News
Brown (knee) was ruled out of Sunday's season finale against the Giants.

Brown will thus miss a third straight game. Signed by Washington in the offseason, Brown wound up as one of the Redskins' best defensive players and was arguably one of the best free-agent pickups of the year. The veteran linebacker was among the league leaders in stops before going down in Week 14 against the Chargers, having logged 127 tackles, 2.5 sacks and two PBUs in 13 games. Washington is expected to start Martrell Spaight and Zach Vigil at inside linebacker in his absence Sunday.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Vernon Davis
News
Davis, who hauled in two of his three targets for 20 yards in Week 17's loss to the Giants, ended the season with 43 receptions for 648 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games.

When he joined the Redskins two years ago, Davis was an afterthought for many. However, the veteran tight end has found resurgence in Washington, posting 87 receptions for 1,231 yards and five touchdowns over the past two seasons. Davis turns 34 later this month, so retirement questions come with the territory, but there's a good chance he returns for another go around in 2018 given the three-year extension he inked with the team back in March. Davis was able to maintain fantasy relevance throughout the season with Jordan Reed sidelined for 10 games -- a trend that could continue next year given Reed's injury history.

Dustin Hopkins
News
Hopkins was 1-for-2 on field goal-attempts Sunday against the Giants and ended the season going 14-for-17 on field-goal attempts and 18-for-19 extra-point tries.

Hopkins season was headlined by the fact that he missed nine games due to a strained rotator muscle in his right hip. It was about par for the course for the third-year pro, as his 82.4 field goal percentage was a slight tick up from his 2016 campaign (81.0%) It's worth mentioning his replacement, rookie Nick Rose, went 10-for-11 on field-goal attempts, which, were he to have qualified, would have him at fifth-best percentage in the league (the league minimum to qualify is 16 attempts).

Tyler Catalina
News
The Redskins signed Catalina to a contract Thursday.

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.

Kevin Bowen
News
Bowen (ankle) reverted to the Redskins' injured reserve Monday.

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.

Tony Bergstrom
News
The Ravens released Bergstrom on Monday, Ryan Mink of the Ravens' official site reports.

It's the second time the Ravens have cut Bergstrom in the past week. The organization could re-sign Bergstrom in the event injuries thin the offensive line ranks later in the season, but even in that scenario, he would remain squarely on the roster bubble.

Quinton Dunbar
News
The Redskins signed Dunbar to a multi-year extension Monday.

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.

Kyle Kalis
News
Kalis (ankle/back) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

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.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ryan Anderson
News
Anderson (knee) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Anderson originally suffered the knee injury during last week's tilt against the Cardinals, and the issue will keep him sidelined for Week 16. As a result of Anderson's absence, Junior Galette will likely see an increased role at outside linebacker behind Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith.
