The Redskins have already ruled out 3 starters for today's game, WR DeSean Jackson, IB Perry Riley, Jr., and CB DeAngelo Hall. CB Chris Culliver was injured in practice on Wednesday and was reportedly dealing with knee soreness that kept him out of practice. Albert Breer reports that he is "50-50" to play today.
Redskins CB Chris Culliver is 50/50 to play today, I'm told. He's the most significant one up in the air for Washington.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 4, 2015
The Redskins also lost starting left guard Shawn Lauvao for the season last week with a severe ankle injury. That left the door open for 2nd-year guard Spencer Long and rookie Arie Kouandjio to get playing time after Josh LeRibeus once again failed to impress on the field and was then injured himself.
Andre Roberts will reportedly be inactive for today's game, making him a healthy scratch. Jamison Crowder has earned more playing time, but the team is still missing DeSean Jackson. Roberts drops have been an issue since last year, and the issue hasn't improved. If Roberts is inactive, the Redskins will go with Pierre Garcon and Ryan Grant with Jamison Crowder in the slot and Rashad Ross fighting for playing time.

The official lists have not been released yet, but several players from both teams have already been ruled out of today's game. Stay tuned for updates.
