The Redskins got the win yesterday against the 49ers, but also lost at least two players for next week's game against the Eagles. Rookie DL Jonathan Allen had an MRI for a foot injury today, and Head Coach Jay Gruden said Allen suffered a Linsfranc injury. He could miss 3-4 weeks according to Gruden, but that injury can linger. Anthony Lanier will be active with Allen out.
The Redskins will be working out kickers today after Dustin Hopkins injured his hip.Hopkins last kick yesterday was a missed extra point.
Gruden was hopeful that Bashaud Breeland can play vs the Eagles Monday after spraining his knee yesterday. He talked about possibly activating DeAngelo Hall from PUP to retun to practice. Rob Kelley and Deshazor Everett are also expected back at practice this week, and Josh Norman's rib injury will be reevaluated.
Jay Gruden Presser
Jonathan Allen injury:
Jonathan Allen has a lisfranc injury. Will be further evaluation. Jay Gruden guesses it could take 3-4 weeks #Redskins— Master Tesfatsion (@MasterTes) October 16, 2017
Losing Jonathan Allen will hurt the Redskins. The rookie has started in nickel and helps collapse the pocket.... https://t.co/MI6GuEoxyP— John Keim (@john_keim) October 16, 2017
Anthony Lanier steps in:
Gruden says Allen could be out 3-4 weeks. Anthony Lanier II will slide into the D-line rotation. https://t.co/1TN0Ub4DGa— Stephen Czarda (@SCzardaRedskins) October 16, 2017
