Tennessee Titans vs Washington Redskins Injury Report; David Amerson Cleared

New, comments

The Titans and Redskins have released their final injury reports before Sunday's game.

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The injury list got a little smaller this week, and we only have 3 players who have been ruled out this week. Malcolm Kelly Tracy Porter is once again OUT after missing practice all week with a hamstring injury that he aggravated in his brief appearance two weeks ago.

Akeem Jordan is also back on the OUT(s) after playing in two games this year.  Jordan sprained his MCL in the preseason, and is still dealing with this injury.

Robert Griffin III started individual drills, and practicing with the scout team this week.  He is scheduled to started practicing more with the team next week, and the team's doctors will begin evaluating him for his eventual return.  But he is OUT this week vs the Titans, and it is still unlikely that he will be ready by next Monday to face the Cowboys in Dallas.

Three more players are listed as questionable for Sunday.  Ryan Clark didn't practice on Wednesday, and has been very limited in practice the last two days.  He played last Sunday with almost no practice, and is expected to play again on Sunday.

David Amerson was a full go at practice today, and has told reporters that he has cleared the NFL's concussion protocol.  He will be on the field on Sunday barring a setback in practice tomorrow.

Perry Riley, Jr is still dealing with a knee injury that has kept him limited in practice all week.  He missed last week's game against Arizona and was replaced by Will Compton.  Compton has taken all of the first team reps this week, and is expected to start again this week in Riley's place.

Four players are probable for the Titans game.  Trent Williams aggravated his knee when he attempted to make a tackle on an interception last week.  Williams was also wearing a compression sleeve to stabilize his kneecap which was slightly dislocated.  Williams practiced fully for the first time this week today, and will play Sunday.

Brian Orakpo is still dealing with an ankle (and finger) injury, but will start Sunday.

Trenton Robinson is also dealing with an ankle injury(high ankle sprain) that has kept him out several weeks.

Darrel Young showed up late last week on the injury report with a hamstring injury, and he was limited in the Cardinals game.  Young was able to fully practice this, which is a good sign for Alfred Morris and the Redskins running game.

Stephen Bowen and Leonard Hankerson started practicing with the team for the first time this year on Wednesday.  Coach Gruden said that Bowen is ready to play, and there is a chance that he could be active on Sunday.  But Leonard Hankerson might need the full 3 week evaluation window before he returns to the lineup.  Gruden said he is still getting his body ready to play and he needs to acclimate himself with the new offense.

QB Jake Locker is obviously the name to watch this weekend.  He was limited all week, and the speculation among Titans media is that he will not play this week.  This would mean the Redskins are facing Charlie Whitehurst, with rookie Zach Mettenberger backing him up, on Sunday.  Locker is listed as questionable, so expect a gametime decision here.
