It’s another week and another battle for the Washington Redskins against the unrelenting injury bug.
As has been the case for the past five weeks, tight end Jordan Reed finds himself sidelined, struggling to overcome a lingering hamstring issue. He will be joined by the same trio that sat out last week’s game: defensive lineman Terrell McClain, safety Montae Nicholson, and center Chase Roullier. Along an already thin offensive line, Roullier’s absence has the potential for the greatest impact, though both McClain and Nicholson performed well the last time Washington took on the Dallas Cowboys with seven and five tackles, respectively.
Among the questionable players, fans should be paying close attention, yet again, to the offensive line. Left tackle Trent Williams, who did not suit up for last week’s Thursday night contest against the New York Giants is likely to be a game-time decision, but his participation in practice this week is a promising sign. Hopefully, he’ll be playing alongside Morgan Moses, who has fought through ankle injuries for weeks. Fans should also watch linebacker Zach Brown’s status closely. Brown, who leads the team with 73 solo tackles, has been an incredible force against opposing teams, and his absence, should he not be able to go, would certainly be felt.
Which questionable player’s absence would be most greatly felt if he couldn’t take the field for tomorrow night’s game?
