The Redskins are 1-9. Dwayne Haskins Jr. is 0-2 as a starter after losses to the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills. Haskins is getting the rest of the year to lead the team and develop before a new offense gets installed next season.
The Redskins continue to deal with injuries this week. Vernon Davis was finally placed on injured reserve after being in the concussion protocol and inactive since Week 5. Chris Thompson is questionable with turf toe. Adam Schefter reports he will test it out pre-game, but it sounds like the Redskins expect him to miss his 5th straight game. Adrian Peterson is also listed as questionable with a toe injury, but he is expected to play. Paul Richardson Jr. will also be returning to the lineup after missing last week with a hamstring injurt.
DT Daron Payne was in a walking boot after the Jet's game and didn't practice all week. He is officially listed as doubtful, but he isn't expected to play. The Redskins signed Ryan Bee from the practice squad for depth, and will also get Tim Settle back after missing a game with a hamstring injury. Josh Norman is questionable with a hamstring injury suffered in practice on Friday. He was part of a trio of starters that were benched last week, and he could see more limited snaps this week if he is active.(UPDATE: Norman is expected to be replaced by Jimmy Moreland in the starting lineup)
