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

With Spencer Long (quad) 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 (groin) is listed as active Sunday against the Cowboys.

Smith will extend his streak of consecutive games to 39 since he was drafted in 2015. That said, his snap count could ultimately be impacted if his groin is unable to handle the rigors of pass rushing versus Dallas' mountainous offensive line.

Bashaud Breeland
News
Breeland (knee/groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Breeland is working his way back from a groin injury in addition to a sprained MCL that has prevented him from taking part in either of the past two games. If he's held out of action yet again in Week 9, Kendall Fuller would presumably draw the start opposite Josh Norman.

Jamison Crowder
News
Crowder hauled in seven receptions on ten targets totaling 141-yards including one touchdown in Thursday's 20-10 Thanksgiving victory over the Giants

Crowder was the only player on both teams to reach the 100-yard marker in either rushing or receiving, as offense was at a premium for much of the evening. His trip to the end zone was somewhat surprisingly his first of the season. The 24-year-old pass-catcher briefly exited the game during the fourth quarter due to a knee injury, but quickly returned to record a crucial third-down conversion. He will look to carry his momentum into next Thursday's contest versus the Cowboys.

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
Nicholson (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Giants.

Nicholson sustained a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Saints and wasn't able to practice this week. Deshazor Everett will presumably start at strong safety in his place.

Injury
Concussion - Inactive for Week 12 vs. N.Y. Giants
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 signed Daniels off their practice squad Tuesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Daniels will assume the roster spot of Chris Thompson, who will be placed on injured reserve after fracturing his right fibula in Sunday's loss to the Saints. With Rob Kelley (ankle) also on IR, Daniels will check in as third on the depth chart at running back behind Samaje Perine (finger) and Byron Marshall heading into the Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Giants. A healthy Perine should fill the lead back role for the Redskins, but Daniels could end up serving as a change-of-pace option if Marshall proves ill equipped for those duties.

Josh Norman
News
Norman notched a season high nine tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Norman was one of three Redskins to play every defensive snap Sunday. He made his time on the field count, as he was effective in the tackle department. The 29-year-old surprisingly has yet to record a pick this season, but will look to fix that Sunday against Drew Brees and the Saints.

Trent Williams
News
Williams (knee) is listed as inactive for Thursday's game against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It still seems that Williams is planning on putting his surgery off until after the season, but the quick turnaround from Sunday's game was too much to recover from. Ty Nsekhe will be deployed to cover Kirk Cousins' blind side.

Injury
Knee - Inactive for Week 12 vs. N.Y. Giants
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) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Giants.

McClain injured his toe last Sunday against the Saints and didn't practice in any capacity this week. With reserves Matt Ioannidis (hand/thigh) and Anthony Lanier (knee) both questionable to play, the Redskins could be in thin at defensive end this week.

Injury
Toe - Inactive for Week 12 vs. N.Y. Giants
Jordan Reed
News
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Friday that he still isn't sure when Reed (hamstring) will return, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.

The Redskins normally would have a long week after playing on Thanksgiving, but they'll instead face the Cowboys on Thursday in Week 13. The team then has a long week ahead of its game against the Chargers on Dec. 10, perhaps giving Reed a realistic target to return from his lengthy absence. He's missed the last four games but could return to face the Cowboys next week if he makes it back to practice at some point between Monday and Wednesday.

Injury
Hamstring - Inactive for Week 12 vs. N.Y. Giants
Zach Vigil
News
Vigil was claimed off waivers by the Redskins on Tuesday, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Vigil will join Washington just one day after being waived by Miami. He'll provide linebacker depth and special teams help. Vigil has two tackles in seven games played this season.

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 logged his third interception of the season in Sunday's overtime loss to the Saints.

Swearinger now has three picks across the previous two weeks, while he had not recorded any prior to that. The 26-year-old also came one tackle short of a season high by posting six (five solo) on the day. He was one of four Redskins defenders to see all 71 defensive snaps in the contest.

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 a sack in Sunday's overtime loss to the Saints to bring his season total up to seven.

Kerrigan also added four solo tackles to his line on the day. His sack was the first since Week 8 when he recorded two against the Cowboys. The veteran outside linebacker played 55 snaps (77.0 percent) in the contest.

Chris Carter
News
Carter signed with the Redskins on Thursday.

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.

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 (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

Everett has been nursing this injury since Week 4 and it's put a lot of pressure on the depth of the Redskins' secondary. With backup Stefan McClure (hamstring) also trying to get to full health, Washington may have to rely on just two safeties -- D.J. Swearinger and Montae Nicholson.

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 set to suit up for the Redskins' Thanksgiving contest against Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Scherff has been a regular on the injury report, but has managed to play in the previous two contests. Barring any setbacks, the 25-year-old should see his usual workload on the line.

T.J. Clemmings
News
Clemmings (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Clemmings had been dealing with an ankle injury since Week 8's loss to the Cowboys. The Redskins used the open roster spot created by the Clemmings move to sign lineman Tyler Catalina.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Ziggy Hood
News
Hood re-signed with the Redskins on Wednesday.

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.

Martrell Spaight
News
Spaight (ankle) is listed as inactive for Thursday's game against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

This isn't much of a surprise, as Spaight was unable to practice all week. In his absence, expect Josh Harvey-Clemons and Zach Vigil to both receive healthy snap counts.

Injury
Ankle - Inactive for Week 12 vs. N.Y. Giants
Colt McCoy
News
McCoy completed eight of 11 passes for 76 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's preseason win over the Bengals.

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.

Josh Doctson
News
Doctson turned four targets into two receptions, 28 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 20-10 win over the Giants.

Offense was tough to come by for both teams throughout most of the evening, but Doctson salvaged his game with a touchdown reception midway through the fourth quarter and gave Redskins the lead. It was the 24-year-old's fourth trip to the end zone this season and first time since Week 8.

Nick Sundberg
No Updates
Samaje Perine
News
Perine racked up 100-yards on 24 carries to go along with three receptions for 30-yards in Thursday's 20-10 win over the Giants.

With fellow running back Chris Thompson (lower leg) placed on injured reserve, Perine saw the bulk of the work in the backfield on Thanksgiving. He handled lead-back duties well, as he contributed an efficient 4.2 yards per rush. The rookie, who was coming off his first career 100-yard rushing game, now has two in a row and will attempt to make it three in the Redskins' Week 13 matchup versus the Cowboys.

Stacy McGee
News
McGee signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the Redskins on Thursday, MIke Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

McGee had a career high 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles while playing in just nine games with Oakland last season. He'll slot in at nose tackle alongside Phil Taylor in Washington.

Jeremy Sprinkle
News
Sprinkle hauled in a seven-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's overtime loss to the Saints.

Sprinkle has been inactive for half of the season but managed 15 offensive reps Sunday with Jordan Reed (hamstring) sidelined. Reed was held out of practice Monday, which doesn't bode well for his chances of playing in the Thanksgiving showdown with the Giants. Sprinkle could continue to see offensive reps with Reed out, but the majority of tight end targets will continue to go to veteran Vernon Davis.

Niles Paul
News
Paul (concussion) is active for Sunday's contest at New Orleans.

Paul is putting an end to a two-game absence, during which he recovered from a concussion. He could earn a decent role behind Vernon Davis due to the absence of Jordan Reed (hamstring), but Paul boasts just two receptions (on three targets) for 29 yards this season.

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
Marshall is expected to serve as the Redskins' third-down back in Thursday's game against the Giants with Chris Thompson (lower leg) suffering a season-ending injury in the Week 11 loss to the Saints, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Though Marshall has just four games of NFL experience to his name, he seems well suited for passing-down work due to his background as a receiver during his college days at Oregon. Similarly to Thompson, Marshall compensates for a small frame (5-foot-9, 201 pounds) with his capable hands, speed and shiftiness, attributes that should allow him to earn frequent snaps behind lead back Samaje Perine if he can prove to be a capable pass blocker. Like many young backs, Marshall may face more of a learning curve when it comes to pass protection, and any missed blocks could result in him heading into head coach Jay Gruden's doghouse. Until Marshall proves he can stay on the field and become a trusted check-down option for quarterback Kirk Cousins, it will be difficult to count on him to produce much fantasy value down the stretch.

Jonathan Allen
News
Allen (foot) will miss the rest of the season, ESPN's John Keim reports.

Allen, who suffered a Lisfranc injury in his left foot during Sunday's victory over San Francisco, will require surgery to have a screw placed in his foot and is facing a three-month timeline for a recovery, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. We expect him to be placed on injured reserve.

Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve
Morgan Moses
News
Moses (ankles) is active for Thursday's game against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

This has been a recurring injury, but it hasn't kept him out of the starting lineup.

Ryan Grant
News
Grant (calf) will play Thursday against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Now that Terrelle Pryor (ankle) has been placed on injured reserve, Grant should see an increased role. However, it's thought that he may be limited Thursday in the wake of his recovery, so fantasy owners outside of deeper leagues should tread lightly. The fourth-year wideout has 30 receptions for 338 yards and three touchdowns this season.

Nick Rose
News
Rose converted his only field-goal attempt and all four of his extra-point tries en route to seven points in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Saints.

Rose made good from 38 yards on his lone field goal, keeping his record perfect over the past three games. Through five total appearances, the rookie has notched 37 points.

Kendall Fuller
News
Fuller (knee) will be under consideration for the Redskins' nickelback role after returning from microfracture surgery, The Washington Post reports.

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.

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 (concussion) was a full participant at the Redskins' walk-through Monday.

Quick has sat out back-to-back games with a concussion, and Monday's estimated participation doesn't hold a ton of value. Washington's normal practices Tuesday and Wednesday should provide a better indication of his status for the Thanksgiving matchup with the Giants.

Rob Kelley
News
The Redskins placed Kelley (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports.

Kelley has been plagued by lower-body injuries all season, missing two of the first five games before appearing in each of the Redskins' last four outings. After sustaining a high-ankle sprain and a Grade 1 or 2 MCL sprain Sunday against the Vikings, the team opted for a safe approach and decided to shut him down for the year. Moving forward, Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson will receive most of the offensive reps in their respective realms, while Byron Marshall was plucked off the Eagles practice squad to serve as RB depth.

Injury

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

Thompson, who leads the Redskins in both rushing (294) and receiving (510) yards this season, will be shut down for the team's final six games after fracturing his right fibula in Sunday's loss to the Saints. The Redskins signed LeShun Daniels from their practice squad to fill his spot in the backfield, but it's expected that Byron Marshall will settle in as the team's top pass-catching back while Samaje Perine leads the ground attack the rest of the way.

Injury
Lower Leg - Injured Reserve
Fish Smithson
No Updates
Lou Young
News
Young (groin) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

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.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for Week 13 at Dallas
Robert Davis
News
The Redskins signed Davis to the practice squad Sunday, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports.

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.

Maurice Harris
News
Harris is one of just three healthy wide receivers for the Redskins ahead of Sunday's game in New Orleans, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.

The Redskins do have some hope that either Ryan Grant or Brian Quick will clear the concussion protocol before Sunday, which would aid team's depth at wideout. Either way, Harris should have a role in the offense after making a spectacular 36-yard touchdown grab in last week's 38-30 loss to the Chiefs. If Grant ends up sitting, Harris presumably would join Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson as a regular part of three-wideout formations. Crowder has the best matchup in the slot, where he should mostly be able to avoid Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley.

Kirk Cousins
News
Cousins completed 19-of-31 passes for 242-yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Thursday's Thanksgiving win over the Giants.

Cousins was involved in every touchdown during the game, as the Giants' lone score occurred on pick-six of the quarterback in the third-quarter. He was relatively efficient outside of the interception on a night where offense was hard to come by. The 29-year-old has now thrown multiple touchdowns in consecutive weeks, and will try to string it to three for the first time this season when the Redskins take on the Cowboys in Week 13.

Manasseh Garner
News
Garner was called up from the Bills' practice squad Friday.

The Bills subsequently released tight end Gerald Christian in order to make room for Garner. The 24-year-old will be making his NFL debut in Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins.

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 suffered an ankle injury Thursday against the Giants and is questionable to return.

Ioannidis was seeing an increased snap count with Terrell McClain (toe) inactive. However, if Ioannidis can't return, the Redskins will be awfully skimp on their defensive front, and Anthony Lanier will take a bulk of the snaps at defensive end.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 13 at Dallas
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.

Caraun Reid
News
Reid signed with the Redskins on Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of Redskins' official site reports.

Reid spent some time with the Lions earlier in the season, playing in one contest. He now joins a Washington defensive line that has had their fair share of injuries this season -- with the most recent being Arthur Jones (shoulder) landing on injured reserve this past weekend. Look for Reid to play a primarily reserve role behind Ziggy Hood and Stacy McGee on the depth chart.

Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 12 vs. N.Y. Giants
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) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Giants, John Keim of ESPN reports.

This comes as little surprise considering Roullier underwent surgery on his broken right hand Tuesday. Tony Bergstrom is expected to start at center in his place.

Hand - Inactive for Week 12 vs. N.Y. Giants
Ty Nsekhe
News
Nsekhe (abdomen) is listed as active for the Redskins' Thanksgiving game against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Although he was limited at practice throughout the short week, Nsekhe will give it a go Thursday. He will presumably continue to provide depth on the offensive line.

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
The Redskins signed Robertson off their practice squad Tuesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Robertson has been working out at both inside and outside linebacker since joining the Redskins' practice squad, so he'll bring some versatility to the second level. While it's unlikely that Robertson will see extended snaps on defense during his time with Washington, the depth he'll provide isn't insignificant with Will Compton (foot) and Mason Foster (shoulder) on injured reserve and three of the team's other linebackers on the injury report heading into Thursday's game against the Giants.

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.

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 (Achilles) is listed as active Thursday versus the Giants.

Brown will be looking to bounce back from a season-low five tackles Sunday at New Orleans. With his eighth double-digit outing of the campaign, he'd certainly keep a stranglehold on his NFL-leading mark, which currently sits at 101 through 10 games.

Vernon Davis
News
Davis was targeted just once and failed to record a reception in Thursday's 20-10 Thanksgiving win over the Giants.

Davis failed to take advantage of fellow tight end Jordan Reed's (hamstring) absence. While both offenses were held in check for much of the night, the veteran tight end's lack of production was disappointing. It was the first time since Week 1 he was unable to haul in a catch. He will look to bounce back next week versus the Cowboys.

Dustin Hopkins
News
Hopkins (hip) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post reports.

Hopkins will be a likely candidate to return from IR once his hip sprain has healed. In the meantime, the Redskins signed Nick Rose to take over kicking duties. Hopkins is 9-for-11 on field-goal attempts this season, with his two misses coming from 50-plus yards.

Injury
Hip - Injured Reserve
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
Dunbar (illness) was a full participant at Monday's walkthrough practice.

Dunbar was inactive for the Redskins' Week 10 loss to the Saints due to an illness. However, it looks like he has recovered from the issue. The 25-year-old appears on track for Thursday's game against the Giants, assuming he can avoid any setbacks.

Ryan Anderson
News
Anderson (neck) was limited in practice this week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Anderson has been dealing with the stinger since early August and finally participated in practice this week, albeit in a limited fashion. The 23-year-old's status for Sunday is uncertain, but even if he suits up, he's expected to see limited snaps due to his slotting on the depth chart.
