The Washington Commanders were in the bubble for today’s practice due to the weather. Benjamin St-Juste missed two games with a mid-ankle sprain, but was at practice yesterday doing individual work. He’s listed as limited again, but he looked good during the media portion of today’s practice.
Dax Milne also missed two games while dealing with a foot injury. Alex Erickson was elevated for both games to take over as the team’s punt returner. Milne was a full participant in practice for the first time in over a month.
Trai Turner missed the first Giants game with knee and ankle injuries, but is expected to be available for the rematch. He was a full participant today, and is only listed with a knee injury this week.
We’re still waiting to find out if Chase Young will make his 2022 debut after tearing his ACL last November, Rivera said that Young was prepared and ready to go yesterday, and he moved around pretty well. He has also previously said that Young will be on a pitch count of 12-16 snaps when he finally plays. We likely won’t find his game status until the end of the week.
Washington got two defensive ends back at practice yesterday. Montez Sweat and James Smith-Williams both entered the concussion protocol after the last game, but were full participants and seem to be cleared. The only addition to the injury report is guard Saahdiq Charles who reported concussion symptoms after yesterday’s practice, and didn’t practice today.
Running backs Antonio Gibson(foot) and Brian Robinson(quad) have both been limited for the last two days, but OC Scott Turner said this was from normal wear and tear at the position and he expects both of them to play when Washington hosts the Giants at FedEx Field on Sunday night.
