The Washington Commanders are coming off their bye week after getting blown out by the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins in back-to-back weeks. They’re now preparing for a west coast trip to face the Los Angeles Rams.
As far as Forbes is concerned, he had a good week of rehab and then he was off and he was doing his rehab stuff as well. He’ll be evaluated through practice this week, as will James Smith-Williams for the most part. Stromberg had the surgery, so he’ll still be down for a while. As far as DFo is concerned, this is one of those things he’s got to be reevaluated by the doctors. We’ll go from there. Saahdiq, we’re going to check in on him tomorrow and see where he is, and then we’ll go from there.
James Smith-Williams has still not been on the field since injuring his hamstring vs the Seahawks five weeks ago. Washington will continue to have Casey Toohill starting at DE with rookies KJ Henry and Andre Jones behind him.
RB Brian Robinson suffered a hamstring injury vs the Dolphins, and he didn’t practice today. Rivera said he thought BRob would be ready for practice this week, but he would be evaluated at the start of the week.
Rookie CB Emmanuel Forbes suffered an elbow injury vs the Giants in Week 11, and missed the last two games. He was a full participant today, and is expected to be back on the field vs the Rams on Sunday.
“Healthy scratch” Curtis Hodges didn’t practice today due to a back injury. The bye week must have been a rough one.
