Here’s a look at who played how much in Week 5 against the Seahawks (snap counts via the NFL). Scroll to the bottom of the page for season to date snap counts for each player.
Offense 55 snaps
QB/O-line: Kirk Cousins 55, Chris Chester 55, Shawn Lauvao 55, Kory Lichtensteiger 54, Tyler Polumbus 47, Trent Williams 50, Tom Compton 9, Morgan Moses 6
For the second straight week, the Redskins get just 55 offensive snaps. Some short-term injuries during the game forced Compton and Moses into action.
Wide receivers: Pierre Garçon 49, DeSean Jackson 50, Andre Roberts 35, Aldrick Robinson 2, Ryan Grant 8
That’s a season low in participation for Robinson
Tight ends: Niles Paul 44, Logan Paulsen 20
That’s by far a season low for Paulsen, who previously had played no fewer than 43 snaps in any game.
Running backs: Alfred Morris 27, Roy Helu Jr. 28, Darrel Young 11
Whenever you see Helu leading Morris in snaps and Young with just a handful, you know it was a pass-heavy attack.
Defense 67 snaps
Defensive line: Jason Hatcher 52, Jarvis Jenkins 42; Chris Baker 33, Frank Kearse 33, Kedric Golston 4, Clifton Geathers 1
This is an odd distribution with two active linemen, Golston and Geathers, getting so few snaps and Kearse getting as many as Baker.
Linebacker: Keenan Robinson 67, Perry Riley 58, Ryan Kerrigan 64, Brian Orakpo 59, Trent Murphy 16, Will Compton 9
Compton got his first NFL snaps outside of garbage time when Riley left with a knee sprain.
Defensive backs: Brandon Meriweather 65, David Amerson 67, Ryan Clark 66, Bashaud Breeland 66, E. J. Biggers 33, Chase Minnifield 1
With Tracy Porter out and the team carrying only four active corners, Breeland saw his most extensive action of his career, missing just one snap.
