The Redskins will be without one of their best defensive players once again as they head into their season finale.
Zach Brown, who is leading the team in tackles, will miss his third straight game.
Jay Gruden said that a combination of an illness and Achilles and knee injuries will keep him out their game against the Giants on Sunday.
Zach Vigil will start in Brown’s place.
Also out are OLB Ryan Anderson, who suffered a knee injury in Week 15 against the Cardinals, and DL Ziggy Hood, who has a fractured elbow.

Listed as questionable are WR Robert Davis (concussion), LB Martrell Spaight (ankle/illness), WR Maurice Harris (back), G Kyle Kalis (back/ankle), and OLB Ryan Kerrigan (calf).
Kerrigan is the interesting name in that group. He has not missed a game since he came into the league, a streak of 111 straight regular-season starts.
It’s the longest streak of consecutive games among NFL linebackers. Kerrigan did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday but he did participate on a limited basis on Friday.
It would be surprising if he missed the game but the situation will bear monitoring when they announce the list of inactive players at around 11:30 on Sunday.
