The Washington Commanders returned to practice today after Sunday’s loss to the New York Giants. They are preparing for a home game, and will be playing the Philadelphia Eagles again in their third division game of the season.
Washington has two players who suffered injuries last week that could cause them to miss some time. Cody Barton suffered a high-ankle sprain, and didn't return to the game. Saahdiq Charles suffered a calf injury, and was replaced by rookie Ricky Stromberg. Both players will get MRIs before the team decides on changes to the lineup.
Two other players players didn’t practice today. Kendall Fuller had two vet rest days last week, and started this week with another one. He said this was part of his routine, and that it will likely continue the rest of the season. WR Curtis Samuel also missed practice with a foot injury.
Two players were limited for today’s practice, RG Sam Cosmi (hip) and TE Cole Turner (ankle).
