The Redskins ruled out two players on Friday due to injury[Colt McCoy(fibula) and Fabian Moreau(ankle)], and then ruled Jordan Reed(concussion) out yesterday. That left 4 players that needed to be inactive today.
We found out this morning that Adrian Peterson was going to be a healthy scratch today. The team is moving forward with Derrius Guice as their featured back with Chris Thompson getting snaps on 3rd down, and Wendell Smallwood being the back/special teamer.
The other three inactives come from the offensive and defensive lines. The Redskins are sitting both of their rookie OLs. Ross Pierschbacher is at the bottom of the depth chart, but Wes Martin has been fighting for the starting LG spot with Ereck Flowers all summer. On defense, the Redskins are sitting former Philadelphia Eagles DL Treyvon Hester.
