The Redskins have won two games in a row and are on top of the NFC East at 4-2. They got their first division win last week against the hated Dallas Cowboys, and now face the 1-6 New York Giants. This is a game the Redskins should win, and have to win to maintain their lead in the division.
The Redskins got Shawn Lauvao back last week, and Chase Roullier moved back to his normal spot at center. Lauvao is still listed on the injury report with the calf injury that caused him to miss 3 games, but he was a full participant in practice Friday. Brandon Scherff is still dealing with an MCL aggravation, but was also full go Friday.
Jamison Crowder has been ruled out again, and will reportedly miss several weeks. He didn't play the last two weeks and Maurice Harris has taken the slot position. Paul Richardson Jr.(shoulder/knee) has been limited all week, and could be a game-time decision on Sunday. He missed last week’s game against the Cowboys.
Michael Floyd and Brian Quick split reps last week, and will likely continue to both see the field if Richardson is out again. Josh Doctson was not listed on this week’s injury report and will start against New York.
Adrian Peterson is still dealing with shoulder and knee injuries, but will start again this week. Chris Thompson has said he plans on playing this week. He is dealing with rib and knee injuries that forced him to miss the last two games. If he misses another game, Kapri Bibbs will have a similar role this week, and Samaje Perine will be active as the 3rd back again.
The Redskins are 1 point favorites against the Giants going into Sunday’s game.
