The Washington Commanders practiced again today and Chase Young was once again on the practice field. Ron Rivera said they would evaluate how he responded to his first day back today, and go from there. He resumed doing position drills and seems to be on track. It’s still highly unlikely that he plays this week. The team has 21 days to activate him and get him back on the playing field.
Washington is dealing with several players who have missed time due to injuries. Jahan Dotson continues to deal with a month-long hamstring injury. Two of Washington’s top LBs are dealing with injuries. The TE room continues to work their way back to being healthy enough to all be available on gameday, but rookie Cole Turner(concussion) was not limited today.
WR Jahan Dotson - The Commanders 1st round rookie has missed the last four weeks with a hamstring injury. He continues to miss practice after tweaking the hammy two weeks ago. Scott Turner said he’ll be back soon. This looks like another lost week.
LB Cole Holcomb - Holcomb showed up on the injury report last week with a foot sprain and didn’t play vs the Colts.
LB David Mayo - Mayo got playing time last week due to Holcomb’s injury. but now misses practice again due to a hamstring injury.
RB J.D. McKissic - Washington’s #3 RB missed the last 6 games of the 2021 season due to a bad concussion/neck injury. Missing practice two days in a row with a neck injury is concerning.
TE Logan Thomas - Thomas is still limited with a calf injury.
DE Shaka Toney - The 2nd-year DE showed up for the first time on the injury report today and was also limited with a calf injury.
TE Cole Turner - The rookie TE was in the concussion protocol, but returned to full practice today
DT Jonathan Allen - Shows up on the injury report with a knee injury but hasn't been limited this week.
C Tyler Larsen - Washington’s starting center continues to practice fully today despite being listed with a back injury.
WR Dyami Brown - Missed the last two games and only played 3 snaps on offense 3 weeks ago. Brown had his breakout game 4 weeks ago with 105 yards and two TDs, but a groin injury has kept him sidelined since.
RG Saahdiq Charles - Missed practice last week with a flu-like illness, but was active as a reserve while Trai Turner started at RG.
RT Sam Cosmi - He had thumb surgery a month ago, but was active for the last two games. He didn’t play a snap, and still has a club on his hand for game days.
RB Jonathan Williams - Injured his knee 4 weeks ago. He didn’t have an injury designation going into Colts game, but was a healthy scratch.
