Redskins vs Browns Injury Report: Murphy Questionable, Doctson Out Again

New, comments

The Redskins prepare for Sunday's game with at least four players who will not see the field, including their first round rookie wide receiver.

This week, injuries will force Washington to shuffle their offensive line again.  With G Shawn Lauvao out due to an ankle injury, fans should anticipate seeing G Arie Kouandjio make his first career start at guard, and Pro Bowl LT Trent Williams will be back in his regular spot after sliding inside to guard during last week's game against the Giants.  Also on the offensive side of the ball, rookie WR Josh Doctson will be sidelined for the second week in a row.  After a flare up with his Achilles before last week's game, the team may be more likely to take its time in making sure its first round draft pick is fully ready to go before he sees the field again.

LB Trent Murphy's uncertain status should be a point of concern; the player who transitioned from LB to DE and back to LB has become a point of strength on an inconsistent defense.  If Murphy, who leads the defense in sacks and forced fumbles, cannot go on Sunday, his absence will increase the pressure on a defense that is already guaranteed to be without CB Bashaud Breeland, CB Dashaun Phillips, and S DeAngelo Hall, who was placed on IR this week with a torn ACL.

The biggest name Redskins fans should pay attention to on Cleveland's injury report is that of CB Joe Haden, and the Browns are hopeful their Pro Bowl player will take the field to match up against the Redskins' receiver corps.  Among notable players who will certainly miss the game are QB Josh McCown and WR Corey Coleman.  (As a reminder, former Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will not suit up for a "homecoming" game against his former team, as he was placed on IR three weeks ago due to a shoulder injury.)
