The Washington Commanders returned to their regular practice schedule today after taking some extra time off during their mini-bye following their appearance on Thursday Night Football. The team continues to have an extensive injury list, with a few lingering injuries to players the team has decided not to place on injured reserve.

CB Tariq Castro-Fields - The rookie CB played on special teams Thursday night, but injured his knee during the early portion of practice today.
TE Logan Thomas - Thomas came back from an ACL tear, but is now dealing with a calf injury. He said he took a step forward in his recovery, and is hopeful to play this week.
TE John Bates - He was dealing with a calf injury, then suffered a hamstring injury on Thursday that kept him out of practice today.
