This will be the third consecutive season where Taylor doesn't play a regular season snap. He last played five games for Cleveland in 2014, making 10 tackles.
Smith has gotten off to a strong start to the season as the starting strong-side linebacker, having recorded a sack in each of the Redskins' first two games. So long as he stays healthy, Smith should continue to be an active part of Washington's pass rush.
Breeland had been hampered by a groin injury throughout training camp, but his absence from Wednesday's injury report indicates he is on track to take the field in Week 1. Barring any setbacks, look for him to start at cornerback Sunday.
Crowder was efficient with his targets Sunday, but he once again took a backseat to Chris Thompson as QB Kirk Cousins' preferred short-range target. Furthermore, he muffed a punt for the second time this season, which led to the Raiders' only touchdown of the night. It was a middling performance all things considered, and things don't get any easier next in Week 4 against a ball-hawking Chiefs secondary.
Despite the Redskins offense showing signs of life Sunday, Pryor was unable to make much of an impact. The main issue seems to be his rapport with QB Kirk Cousins -- which is seemingly nonexistent. While Pryor's upside remains sky high, he'll be hard to trust for fantasy purposes until he and Cousins get on the same page.
Nicholson has been dealing with an AC join sprain in practice but will get the nod to play in Sunday's contest.
Foster dislocated his shoulder Week 2 and was a long shot to play against Oakland. Will Compton will likely see extended snaps in Foster's absence.
Norman was a limited participant in practice all week with a shoulder sprain but will be good to go against Oakland. His performance likely will be a key to the Redskins winning Sunday's matchup, as he will be tasked with squaring up against talented receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree.
This marks the second time in as many years that Marshall has landed on IR before the regular season began. He tore his patella tendon and was waived on Monday. Now that he's cleared waivers, he'll be able to remain with the Redskins as he recovers and looks towards next year.
McClain's deal will draw him out of Dallas and reportedly will be worth more than $21 million over the course of its four years. The defensive tackle led the Cowboys' defensive line in tackles with 41 in 2016, and also added 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and eight quarterback pressures. He should provide a significant boost for a Redskins' front seven that surrendered 119.8 rushing yards per game last season, good for 24th in the league.
Reed returned to a limited practice Thursday and Friday but ultimately was held out for Sunday's 27-10 win over the Raiders. His return would be welcome as the Redskins prepare for a tricky matchup, though Vernon Davis once again proved to be more than capable as a fill-in starter during Sunday's easy victory. The team presumably would like to see Reed log at least one full practice before he plays in a game.
The veteran corner has been battling this knee injury since the beginning of training camp. Because of his designation, Hall will be unable to return until Week 7, but being placed on PUP instead of injured reserve is a reason for optimism.
Swearinger was dealing with some back issues earlier in the week but it didn't seem to slow the safety down on Sunday as he recorded the fourth most tackles on the team. The Redskins are dealing with a plethora of injuries in the secondary this week, including Montae Nicholson (shoulder) and Deshazor Everett (knee). Combine that with Su'a Cravens (personal) placement on the reserve/left squad list and suddenly the Redskins are looking very thin at safety, which means they may rely on Swearinger more than they already do in the coming weeks.
Kerrigan has been quite active to start the season, as he has either a sack or half a sack in each game to go along with a forced fumble, an interception, and a touchdown. The 29-year-old saw 42 snaps (82%), and figures to continue seeing a similar workload. He will seek to continue his sack streak Monday night against the Chiefs.
A 2011 fifth-round selection, Carter has bounced around the league as a special teams contributor and depth linebacker, recording 26 tackles in 62 regular-season games. He'll likely be buried on the defensive depth chart in Washington, with special teams once again representing his best chance to contribute.
Everett was diagnosed with a sprained MCL earlier this week, but it doesn't look as though he is going to miss any game action. The 25-year-old will likely be back at starting strong safety against the Raiders on Sunday, barring a setback.
This injury is a big reason why he slipped to the third round in the 2017 draft. Moreau made the switch to cornerback during his college career, and he's shown he's athletic enough to hold his own. Once healthy, expect him to challenge for a backup defensive back position and specialist role.
After signing a one-year deal with the Redskins in the spring of 2016, Hood appeared in all 16 games this past season, starting in 14 and cranking out 33 tackles and three passes defensed. With the release of incumbent starter Ricky Jean-Francois, he could be in the mix for starting duties ahead of the 2017 campaign.
Spaight limped off the field and is still being evaluated by team doctors. Look for more updates to come.
McCoy had to wait until halfway through the third quarter to take the field Sunday but made good on his limited reps, leading a fourth-quarter comeback complete with two scoring drives -- including a nine-yard touchdown pass to tight end Derek Carrier. Firmly in control of the No. 2 spot on the depth chart, McCoy should be locked in for quite a bit of playing time in Thursday's preseason finale, as most of the starters are expected to rest.
Doctson flashed his big-play upside Sunday night by leaping over Raiders CB David Amerson for a 52-yard scoring strike in the third quarter that essentially sealed the game for Washington. His usage wasn't enough to warrant immediate fantasy consideration, but the former first-rounder nonetheless reinserted himself into the conversation as someone to either stash away or keep an eye on down the road.
Perine was forced out of Sunday's 27-10 win over the Raiders in the fourth quarter after taking a huge hit and losing a fumble. The injury apparently isn't as bad as it initially looked, with Perine fortunate to avoid a concussion or any fractures. He was inefficient while filling in for Rob Kelley (rib) on Sunday, managing just 49 yards on 19 carries and six yards on one reception. Meanwhile, passing-down back Chris Thompson rumbled for 188 scrimmage yards and found the end zone for a fourth time in three games. Perine should retain an early-down role if he's available for Week 4 against Kansas City and Kelley still isn't ready, but the rookie has yet to show any signs of becoming a viable fantasy option. Perine is averaging just 2.9 yards per carry, compared to Kelley's 4.9 and Thompson's 8.5.
Sprinkle is buried on the depth chart at tight end, resulting in him being a healthy scratch Week 1. He's unlikely to see much action unless the team faces injuries at the tight end position.
Injuries have kept Paul on the sideline for the majority of the past two seasons, but the veteran tight end is finally back in the fold for Washington. With Jordan Reed (toe) returning from the Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, Paul could see a slight decline in reps over the next few weeks, but the 28-year-old's ability to handle multiple roles should continue to create opportunities throughout the season.
Balducci was a defensive lineman throughout his collegiate career at Oregon, but made the switch to the offensive line last season as a member of the 49ers. He ended up playing just two games for the 49ers after being promoted from the team's practice squad and was eventually cut during the offseason. He'll now head to the Jets, where he'll serve in a depth role at guard if he's able to make the 53-man roster out of training camp.
It wasn't long ago that Allen was universally regarded as a top-five pick, but positional ambiguity and poor athletic testing complicated his projection a bit. A star pass rusher on the edge for Alabama, at this point Allen is built more like a defensive tackle (6-foot-3, 286 pounds), and certainly had the athletic testing of one. His 5.0-second 40, 30-inch vertical, 108-inch broad jump and 7.49-second three-cone are good for a defensive tackle, but not for the end position he primarily played at Alabama. But even if Allen can't play outside in the NFL, he should be a solid tackle for Washington.
Grant didn't live up to the hype this Sunday after his Week 1 performance -- four receptions for 61 yards -- as he only managed two looks from Kirk Cousins. After almost doubling No. 4 wideout Josh Doctson's reps last week, Grant's 30 offensive snaps were almost matched by Doctson (29). If Grant's lackluster performances continue, they team may opt to go with the younger Doctson as the No. 3 option.
Fuller dropped into the third round of this year's draft because of the knee injury he suffered last year in college, but had been given first-round grades by several teams had he owned a clean bill of health. Fortunately, he participated in minicamp last month without setbacks, and declared himself healthy afterword. Fuller is fully capable of playing on the outside, but with Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland locking down the top corner jobs, Fuller will be tasked to handle nickleback duties his rookie year. However, he will still have to earn the job in training camp.
Quick failed to make an impact in his first game as a Redskin, logging reps as the fifth wideout. It appears as if the team is comfortable trusting young receivers like Josh Doctson and Ryan Grant ahead of the veteran, which may leave Quick with little fantasy value this season.
Kelley was a limited practice participant all last week, but the Redskins decided he was still in too much pain to play in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Raiders. The outlook could change ahead of a difficult Week 4 matchup, as Samaje Perine gained only 49 yards on 19 carries prior to exiting Sunday's victory with a bruised hand. Kelley also figures to benefit from having an extra week of rest.
Anderson was competing among quite a few candidates to provide receiver depth on the final roster, but the Texans ultimately opted to let him go. Should he clear waivers, he figures to be a prime candidate for landing on the team's practice squad.
Always known to be a receiving-oriented tailback, Thompson appears to be taking his game to new heights in 2017 behind his team-leading 19 targets in the passing game (tied with Terrelle Pryor). However, fantasy owners need to keep in mind he's topped 100 scrimmage yards only once in his previous 36 games leading up to Week 2 of this season, which suggests this statistical explosion is unlikely to persist.
Brown saw an increased role with Rob Kelley (ribs) inactive and carried the ball well, but still saw only 10 of 68 offensive snaps. The 24-year-old remained well behind Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson, and will likely only sneak a few carries if Kelley remains out.
Young is headed into his second year in the NFL. He played in six games last season in a special teams role -- recording one tackle. When he recovers, there's no guarantee he stays in Washington.
The sixth-round pick failed to make the 53-man roster but will get to spend the season with the team as a member of the practice squad. Head coach Jay Gruden was impressed with the rookie throughout the preseason. "Robert has done some good things, not just catching the ball but blocking," Gruden noted. Should the Redskins endure injuries at wideout, it wouldn't be surprising to see Davis get the call up midway through the year.
Harris was competing among a crowded group of receivers for the final role on the depth chart, but ultimately failed to make the cut. He will look for a new opportunity elsewhere if he does not land on the team's practice squad.
Cousins put his past two weeks of poor play behind him by taking advantage of a porous Raiders secondary in primetime. This marked his sixth career game with at least 350 yards and three scores, reminding fantasy owners of the statistical upside he possesses. However, he won't get these favorable of matchups every week, and that certainly holds true in Week 4 when he travels to Kansas City to take on a Chiefs secondary that picked off Chargers QB Philip Rivers three times Sunday.
The talented defender went down with a knee injury during Thursday's preseason loss and will require further testing. Considering that Murphy is already facing a four-game suspension to start the season, it's unclear whether Thursday's injury will cause him to miss additional time. Preston Smith should continue to see time at the strongside linebacker spot in Murphy's absence.
Compton has started for the Redskins much of the past two seasons and appears set to handle another large workload this year. He has also recovered from the knee injury that afflicted him late last season, giving him a clean bill of health heading into 2017.
Nsekhe suffered the injury in Sunday's game against the Raiders and looks to be out indefinitely. He should be considered week-to-week until the team provides another update.
Lanier dealt with a lower leg injury throughout camp but appears to be in full health entering Week 1. He projects to provide depth at defensive end to start the year.
Galette's appearance at practice Wednesday bodes well for his availability for the season opener. The Redskins hope Galette can be a significant piece to their defensive puzzle this season, so it would not be surprising if they keep Galette limited throughout the remainder of the preseason.
Brown has now reached a double-digit tackle total in each of the Redskins first three games. He played in 51 defensive snaps in the contest, and is showing now signs of slowing down. The 27-year-old will look to stay hot in Monday's clash with the Chiefs.
It's hard to believe just how fast and nimble Davis is in his age-33 season, but he reminded a few Raiders defenders Sunday night that he's still a force to be reckoned with in this league -- namely CB Sean Smith, who was benched by Oakland after getting torched by Davis on an 18-yard scoring strike. Of course, Davis only started because Jordan Reed (chest) wasn't able to play, but Reed is averaging over four missed games per season he's been in the league, making Davis very relevant in most formats for occasional streaming purposes.
Hopkins converted from 23 and 28 yards but pulled a 52 yard attempt wide left in the third quarter. It's the 26-year-old's second miss from 50-plus this season, but he has been a perfect 5-for-5 from shorter distances.
Bowen was waived over the weekend with an unspecified ankle injury, but after going unclaimed by the other 31 teams, he'll stick around in the Washington organization while he recovers.
Dunbar missed last week's game due to his concussion and has yet to return to practice. If the Redskins make the playoffs Dunbar will have a shot to play in the wildcard round. Greg Toler and Kendall Fuller figure to see added snaps once again with Dunbar sidelined.
After suffering a stinger in his neck/shoulder area during the preseason opener, Anderson wasn't certain to be ready for the start of the regular season, but he evidently performed well enough during his limited participation in practices this week to receive clearance for his NFL debut. Though he'll suit up Sunday, Anderson won't have a clear path to snaps with Ryan Kerrigan, Preston Smith and Junior Galette ahead of him on the depth chart at outside linebacker.
