Commanders vs Eagles Friday Injury Report: Two players ruled out

Injury updates

NFL: Washington Commanders at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Commanders held their last full practice of the week as they prepare for a home game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The team ruled out two players that were injured last week and are expected to miss multiple games. Cody Barton suffered a high-ankle sprain, and didn't return to the Giants game. Saahdiq Charles suffered a calf injury, and was replaced by rookie Ricky Stromberg.

We were still waiting on updates about the severity of the injuries after further testing. Ron Rivera said today that Charles’ injury could last multiple weeks. Barton’s high-ankle injury didn’t look good when it happened, and initial reports sounded like it would also keep him out for multiple weeks.

The Washington Commanders were working backup Tyler Larsen, and others, in practice this week in preparation for a new offensive line configuration. Nick Gates could be sliding over to LG, or out of the starting lineup due to lackluster play. Other options at guard include 3rd round pick Ricky Stromberg and 2nd-year guard Chris Paul who took a lot of 1st-team snaps in training camp, but has been a healthy scratch most of the year. Washington will turn to David Mayo and Khaleke Hudson to pair with starter Jamin Davis. They also elevated Jabril Cox from the practice squad for the first time this season.

WR Curtis Samuel missed practice with a foot injury with a foot injury, and was limited the last two days. There hasn’t been many updates on his condition, but he’s expected to be available on Sunday. Phidarian Mathis had his 21-day practice window to return from injured reserve opened on Wednesday, and he was a full participant in practice all week. He’s listed as questionable, but Washington will have to activate him from IR for him to be available. This is the same track that Efe Obada was on when he came back from IR, and he was activated and played in the game that week. Washington would need to make a corresponding roster move to activate Mathis; Barton and Charles could both be candidates to take his place on IR.
