The Redskins injury list is pretty short this week, with only 3 players listed as questionable vs the Packers. WR DeSean Jackson missed last week’s game against the Vikings with a shoulder injury. He returned to the practice field this week, and was a full participant at Friday’s practice. Jay Gruden said he could be a game-time decision.
Morgan Moses has said he is playing through the pain of an ankle injury he suffered a few weeks ago against the Bengals in London. He played last week after being listed as questionable, only missing a few plays during the game before quickly returning. Moses is expected to play.
The only new injury to be concerned about this week is to the player that everyone forgets about, the long snapper. Nick Sundberg reportedly hurt his back in the weight room earlier this week, and has not practiced for the last two days. The Redskins brought in several players as possible replacements for this game, and had everyone on the team practice their long snaps to be the emergency LS. The winner of that competition? Colt McCoy...seriously...I think.
The Packers will go into Sunday’s game with a much longer injury list than the Redskins. Green Bay has ruled out 4 players this week, with another two listed as questionable. Clay Matthews is expected to return to the field after missing the last 3 games
