Washington has two players ruled out for Sunday’s home game against the Los Angeles Rams. CB Greg Stroman injured his foot against the Baltimore Ravens on a punt return. He was replacing Steven Sims Jr. who injured his toe in Week 2 against the Cardinals, and has been limited ever since. Sims was place on IR today. Third string TE Marcus Baugh will miss the Rams game due to a death in the family.
The big news today was DE Chase Young returning as a full participant in practice today. He suffered a groin injury two weeks ago vs the Browns, and was ruled out for the second half. He had what was described as a moderate groin injury, and missed his first NFL game last Sunday. Young is listed as questionable, but it’s looking good for his return to the field on Sunday.
Wes Schweitzer has been filling in for the injured Brandon Scherff at right guard and has been doing a pretty good job. He has missed practice all week with an elbow injury, but was a full go today. He’s listed as questionable, but should be ready to play Sunday. Washington signed Joshua Garnett from the practice squad today to take the spot freed up by Steven Sims. Garnett was called up to the active roster for the last two weeks, and is firmly in the backup guard discussion.
Washington’s starting center Chase Roullier didn’t practice today with a knee injury. He is listed as questionable.
Morgan Moses has been on the injury report the last few weeks with a hip injury, but wasn’t listed today, and is fully healthy heading into Sunday’s game.
WR’s Terry McLaurin(thigh) and Dontrelle Inman(foot) have both been dinged up recently. Both played last week, missed practice time this week, and are expected to play vs the Rams.
Cole Holcomb has missed the last 3 games with a knee injury, but is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game. He was also a full participant in today’s practice and could make his return to the field this week.

Washington has an addition to the injury report: Chase Roullier is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. Washington protected practice squader Ross Pierschbacher earlier this week for the first time. Keith Ismael is Roullier's backup.— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) October 9, 2020
On Chase Roullier. He's felt soreness in his knee previously - that's gonna happen with football players - but more noticeable today, according to a person familiar with the situation. So, he's getting it checked out. That's the deal for now.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) October 9, 2020
