The Redskins injury woes continue. Offensive linemen Brandon Scherff(ankle) and Chase Roullier(knee) were both injured during Monday Night’s loss to the Bears. Case Keenum also injured his foot and was in a boot, but returned to practice yesterday and is expected to start this week. The Redskins best offensive weapon, rookie WR Terry McLaurin, suffered a hamstring injury yesterday and is not practicing today. Jordan Reed continues to miss practice with a concussion from over a month ago.
The word around the park yesterday was that the Roullier knee injury was the more serious of the two OL injuries. Ben Standig reports that he is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Giants, and could miss more time than that. Scherff was at practice yesterday with his ankle wrapped, but wasn’t a participant in team drills. We’ll have to wait for the official injury report after practice to see his status. Tony Bergstrom will be the next man up at either center or guard if either player is out. Rookie Wes Martin will also be activated for the first time this season.
The Terry McLaurin injury is a big one for an offense that has been missing Jordan Reed all year, and is relying on a very inexperienced WR group. McLaurin has been the highlight for the Redskins so far this year, scoring a TD in all 3 of his NFL games. If McLaurin misses this week, the Redskins will have to rely on Paul Richardson Jr., Trey Quinn, Steven Sims Jr., Kelvin Harmon, and Robert Davis against the Giants.
Lotta offensive absences: McLaurin, Scherff, Roullier, Reed. #redskins. Not good for a Friday.— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 27, 2019
Also touched on the OL issues. Hearing Chase Roullier (knee) doubtful for Sunday and could be out longer.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 27, 2019
This was the play Scherff got hurt. Flowers taken inside but drives his DT to the ground, ends up rolling up on Scherff’s leg. Thought Roullier was superb in passing off a stunt and working around Flowers to do just enough to get the looping LB.
