We’re entering Week 4, and there has definitely been an uptick in injuries popping up on the injury report. The first few weeks saw an uncharacteristically low amount for the Washington Football Team, but we’re getting back to average now. Washington has 8 players with gameday designations listed going into the weekend.
Chase Young wasn’t expected to play this week after leaving last week’s game with a groin injury and getting ruled out quickly. It was reported to be a moderate groin strain, and he is day-to-day. Jack Del Rio didn’t want to rule him out until he had to, but there were no indications throughout the week that he would be able to play vs the Ravens. Washington also lost DT Matt Ioannidis(biceps) for the season this week.
The other big name on the injury report this week is WR Terry McLaurin who is listed as questionable with a thigh injury. He was limited yesterday and didn’t practice today. Rivera didn’t give any updates on McLaurin’s status during today’s presser, but this would be a huge loss for an offense that doesn’t have many weapons. They will also be without WR Steven Sims Jr. who reaggravated his toe injury. This also affects punt returns, and will put a much bigger spotlight on undrafted rookie WR Isaiah Wright vs the Ravens.
DE Ryan Anderson is listed as questionable with a with an ankle injury, but has practiced the last two days and should be good to go on Sunday. With Chase Young out, Anderson will be the #3 DE behind Ryan Kerrigan and Montez Sweat. Nate Orchard was signed to the 53-man roster from the practice squad this week for more depth. James Smith-Williams can also play DE but has been listed as a backup at DT following Ioannidis’ injury.
Morgan Moses(hip) didn’t practice Wednesday, was limited yesterday, and full go today. He’s listed as questionable, but he is very likely to play this week. If he can’t go or gets injured, we would likely see Cornelius Lucas step in at right tackle for him. LB Kevin Pierre-Louis is also listed as questionable this week due to illness.
Washington Football Team Injury Report
The Ravens haven’t ruled anyone out this week, but they do have 8 players listed as questionable. OT Ronnie Stanley hasn’t practiced the last two days with a shoulder injury. CB Jimmy Smith and WR Chris Moore also didn’t practice today.
Baltimore Ravens Injury Report
Harbaugh had no interest in discussing the team's injury situation and you won't get much from injury report either. 8 Ravens are questionable: Justice Hill, Chris Moore, Ronnie Stanley, L.J. Fort, Jimmy Smith, Justin Madubuike, Derek Wolfe, Anthony Levine Sr.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) October 2, 2020
