The Redskins emerged from Sunday’s 27-10 loss to the Patriots unscathed in terms of new injuries, Coach Jay Gruden said on Monday.
The only injury of note was to defensive captain Dashon Goldson, who left the game in the fourth quarter with a hamstring strain. Gruden said the starting free safety will be reevaluated on Wednesday—the first day of on-field prep for Sunday’s showdown against Drew Brees and the Saints.
"Injuries, in game, we just had normal bumps and bruises," Gruden said. "Everybody who had one returned, other than Goldson."
The Redskins will also evaluate on Wednesday the progress made by center Kory Lichtensteiger (neck), cornerback DeAngelo Hall (toe) and nose tackle Terrance Knighton (migraine headaches).
Lichtensteiger did a little more in practice on Friday and was upgraded to questionable for Sunday’s game at Foxboro though he did not play. He’s missed the past three contests.
Hall has missed the past five games with a plantar plate tear. He’s been slowly ramping up his level of activity and could return against the Saints.
Knighton, meantime, missed Sunday’s game due to severe headaches that have plagued him on-and-off since his early teens. If he's feeling better, he could practice on Wednesday, Gruden said.
“He’s had a history of them,” Gruden said. “But it a concern when you’re talking about migraine headaches. ...I think we’re hoping that we can get them under control and he is able to play again. That’s something that I don’t know and I don’t think anybody can predict.”
