Shawn Lauvao has missed the last 3 games as he dealt with a calf injury. Tony Bergstrom was starting at center and Chase Roullier was moved over to left guard. Lauvao returns to the lineup today, and Roullier moves back to center.
Troy Apke was also ruled out this week as he deals with a hamstring injury. Kenny Ladler will be active again today as the team’s 4th safety.
Josh Doctson will play today with a heel injury. He is the only Redskins starting WR that will be in the lineup just like everyone predicted before the season started. Jamison Crowder was ruled out on Friday with an ankle injury, and Paul Richardson Jr. will also miss today's game with knee/shoulder injuries.
Maurice Harris has been active the last two weeks, and had 6 catches for 60 yards. Harris will play in the slot today in place of Crowder. Michael Floyd and Brian Quick will also be active and playing on the outside with Doctson.
Adrian Peterson will play today, but he has been dealing with shoulder and knee injuries. That did not stop him as he plowed through the Panthers defense last week. Chris Thompson has been ruled out with knee and rib injuries he got during the Saints game two weeks ago. Samaje Perine is active, and Kapri Bibbs will take over for Thompson.
Morgan Moses, Trent Williams, and Brandon Scherff have been dealing with knee injuries but will play today. Moses was not even listed on the injury report this week. Williams was a full participant in practice all week. Scherff had an MCL aggravation last week, but returned to the game.
Quinton Dunbar showed up on Friday with a shin injury, and was listed as questionable. Gruden said they will try to keep Fabian Moreau in the slot if they can. The Redskins listed Moreau as the starter, but Greg Stroman will be the next man up wherever he's needed. Adonis Alexander is active for the first time this year.
Caleb Brantley is also active for the first time for the Redskins today. Washington released veteran DE Ziggy Hood this week so they could sign WR Jehu Chesson from the practice squad. Stacy McGee returned to practice this week, but is not ready to play.
