The Washington Redskins will have two of their top cornerbacks on the field today with Chris Culliver and Bashaud Breeland both active. Culliver was reportedly having soreness in his knee on Friday, and spent the day rehabbing in the pool. Bashaud Breeland suffered a hamstring injury two weeks ago against the Buccaneers, but has made a quick recovery to return to action. DeAngelo Hall is reportedly close to making his return from a Week 3 toe injury, but will have an additional week to recover with Breeland and Culliver returning.
Terrance Knighton was ruled out yesterday due to cluster headaches that he has dealt with since childhood. He did not travel with the team, and this is the first time they have caused him to miss a game. Kedric Golston will start at NT, keeping Chris Baker at DE. Kory Lichtensteiger will once again be out due to a neck/shoulder injury, which places 4th-year player Josh LeRibeus in the middle of the Redskins line again.
And of course, this week marks the return of DeSean Jackson to the lineup. He has been out since suffering a bad hamstring injury in Week 1.

Jamie Collins was added to the Patriots injury report yesterday with an illness and was listed as questionable. He will be inactive today which is a big blow to New England's defense.
