The Washington Commanders returned to practice today after Sunday’s win over the Atlanta Falcons. They are preparing for another road game, and will be playing the New York Giants for their second division game of the season. The injury list is a lot longer than it was last week, and Washington has a number of injuries that could affect this week’s lineup.
Two players didn’t practice today. Kendall Fuller had a great interception vs the Falcons, but was absent today with a knee injury. Chris Rodriguez got some carries in Atlanta, and got a day off today for personal reasons.
Six more players were limited for today’s practice[Jonathan Allen(knee), Kam Curl(ankle), Christian Holmes(hamstring), Chris Paul(back), James Smith-Williams(foot), and Montez Sweat(thumb)]. Washington also had two players that were full participants in practice[Sam Cosmi(knee) and Benjamin St-Juste(hand).
