Adam Schefter dropped two late Saturday night tweets that are not good for the Redskins offense today. WR Jamison Crowder and RB Chris Thompson are not expected to play vs the Carolina Panthers. Both players were injured Monday night against the Saints and Jay Gruden said they would be game-time decisions.
Crowder was not expected to play after missing practice all week with an ankle injury. Maurice Harris will likely man the slot if Crowder is out. Paul Richardson Jr.(shoulder/knee) and Josh Doctson(heel) were also limited in practice this week and listed as questionable. The Redskins will have to use Michael Floyd and Brian Quick if either can't go, or leaves the game early.
Chris Thompson injured his ribs and knee last week and was limited in practice all week. Thompson was questionable, but will now likely miss the game on a short week to recover. Adrian Peterson is also dealing with multiple injuries(ankle/knee/shoulder) and could be limited in his role. Kapri Bibbs should see a lot of work and we could see Samaje Perine emerge from the doghouse. The Redskins also have Mack Brown available on the practice squad.
Redskins’ RB Chris Thompson, listed as questionable for Sunday due to rib and knee injuries, is not expected to play vs. Panthers, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 14, 2018
Redskins’ WR Jamison Crowder, listed as questionable for Sunday with an ankle injury, is not expected to play vs. the Panthers. So the Redskins expect to be down Chris Thompson and Crowder.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 14, 2018
