The Redskins have seven players declared out of today's game against the Jets with injuries. Since only seven players are inactive for each game, the Redskins will have third quarterback Robert Griffin III on the 46-man active list for the game.
It is unlikely that Griffin will play unless both starter Kirk Cousins and backup Colt McCoy are injured.
Inactive for the Redskins are the six players previously announced as out with injuries, all of them starters: OT Trent Williams (concussion), C Kory Lichtensteiger (shoulder/finger), WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring), TE Jordan Reed (concussion), CB DeAngelo Hall (toe) and CB Chris Culliver (knee).
In addition, running back Matt Jones is out so Alfred Morris will take the majority of the carries with third-down back Chris Thompson likely getting an expanded role.
The Redskins are slated to line up Ty Nsekhe, who is nearly 30 years old but has just 10 snaps of NFL experience on offense, in Williams' spot. Josh LeRibeus, a 2012 third-round pick who has never been able to create much of a role for himself, will get the nod at center. Derek Carrier, who has proven to be a good pass catcher but a subpar blocker, will start at tight end. Jackson has been out since early in the Redskins' season opener and Ryan Grant has played in his place. His production has been less than impressive (12 receptions, 118 yards) The cornerbacks will be Bashaud Breeland and Will Blackmun with rookie Kyshoen Jarrett covering the slot.
