The Washington Football Team released their final injury report for the week, and two players are listed as doubtful. Geron Christian Sr.(knee) and Dontrelle Inman(hamstring) are both likely to miss Sunday’s game. Cornelius Lucas will probably get his second straight start in place of Christian. Washington’s WR corps could be getting two players back that were out two weeks ago vs the Cowboys. Steven Sims Jr. returned to practice on Wednesday and has been a full participant(unofficially). Isaiah Wright was limited for the first day back from the bye, but has been full go the rest of the week.

Ron Rivera was asked if he knows the team’s identity. The team is still young, and reaching to find out who they are. It’s based on winning and the attitude they play with. The team has 9 more games to establish it’s identity this season.

J.D. McKissic is a player that Rivera is very high on. He could be a first, second, and/or third down back. His versatility makes him an asset to any offense. They don’t need McKissic to be an every down back because they have Antonio Gibson, but Rivera wants to get the ball in his hands as much as possible.

Bryce Love has been on injured reserve since October 2nd, and hasn’t played a single down since being drafted in the 4th round last year. He tore his ACL on the final play of his college career at Stanford, and has had two knee surgeries since then. Rivera is hopeful that he can return this year, and thinks the opportunity to get him back on the field is coming soon.
