DeAngelo Hall said he would be back this week, and now the Redskins have officially activated him off the PUP list. Hall was recovering from ACL surgery from an injury suffered in Week 3 last year vs the Giants. Hall has been practicing with the team since October 23rd, and should be ready to play if the team needs him. OL Orlando Franklin, signed a week ago, was cut to make room for Hall on the roster
The Redskins released their final injury report yesterday, and it does not have much good news for the offensive line again. Shawn Lauvao(stinger) has been ruled out, but Trent Williams(knee), Spencer Long(knee), and Ty Nsekhe(core muscle) are all listed as doubtful and won't be active. Brandon Scherff (knee/back) has been practicing, and is listed as questionable. This will mean a starting lineup of T.J. Clemmings, Tyler Catalina, Chase Roullier, Scherff (or Arie Kouandjio if needed), and Morgan Moses in Seattle's loud stadium. The Redskins practiced in the bubble yesterday while blasting Guns N' Roses so they should be fully prepared...
The Redskins also ruled out two more starters, and a backup. Tight ends Jordan Reed(hamstring) and Niles Paul (concussion) will miss tomorrow's game, leaving Vernon Davis and rookie Jeremy Sprinkle as Washington's only active TEs. Second-year DE Matt Ioannidis is also out after getting surgery for a fractured hand. The Redskins signed Arthur Jones this week for depth.
Washington could also be missing WR Jamison Crowder in Seattle. Crowder is dealing with a hamstring injury again this season, and both he and Jay Gruden expressed concerns about it lingering.
"I don't want to make it worse and have it lingering for the rest of the season," Crowder said. "It's kind of tricky. It feels good at times, and then I go out and work, and it doesn't feel like bad, but it doesn't feel I can be as explosive to [where] I feel I can go out and compete at a high level."
The Redskins have four other players listed as questionable for the Seahawks game. Bashaud Breeland missed last week's game after tweaking his knee during the last practice of the week. Rob Kelley is still dealing with an ankle injury. Montae Nicholson continues to deal with shoulder issues that he seems to reaggravate every week. Martrell Spaight is also dealing with a shoulder injury that has limited him in practice all week.
Another ridiculously long injury list this week, here's to no new names on the list next week.
