The Washington Commanders are coming off a loss to the Los Angeles Rams. They’ve officially been eliminated from the playoff race, and have three more games left in the season. Next up is another road trip, this time to New Jersey to face the Jets.
Washington had several players get hurt before and during last week’s loss to the Rams. DT John Ridgeway injured his foot during pre-game warmups. He has been limited in both practices this week, and we’re still waiting for updates on his injury.
Washington also lost two offensive linemen during the game. Center Tyler Larsen left the game with a knee injury, and LT Charles Leno suffered a calf injury. Both players haven’t practice this week. They were replaced by C Nick Gates and OT Cornelius Lucas, and that would likely be the lineup if both players miss more time. RB Jonathan Williams suffered a concussion last week and also missed practice.
James Smith-Williams hasn’t played since injuring his hamstring vs the Seahawks six weeks ago. He had another limited practice today, which is a good sign for his return to the active roster. Washington has been starting Casey Toohill at DE with rookies KJ Henry and Andre Jones behind him.
RB Brian Robinson suffered a hamstring injury vs the Dolphins, and he missed Sunday’s game against the Rams. Robinson continues to miss practice and his odds to play against the Jets continues to go down.
Washington had three players listed as full participants yesterday. Rookie CB Emmanuel Forbes suffered an elbow injury vs the Giants in Week 11, and missed two games. He played limited snaps vs the Rams. LB Cody Barton is listed with a knee injury. Tress Way took a big hit after he recovered a bad snap and is listed with a back injury. Way was on yesterday’s list, but has been removed today.
