A day after adding one starter to injured reserve this week, the Redskins are looking at the prospect of three others missing Sunday’s game against the Eagles.
Not participating in practice were cornerback DeAngelo Hall (toe), WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring), and ILB Perry Riley (calf).
Hall has already been ruled out of Sunday’s game and for at least the next two after that. Jay Gruden said that Hall missing three to four weeks was the best-case scenario and the injury could keep him out longer due to the nature of the pounding the toe takes at the cornerback position.
Jackson suffered his pulled hamstring early in the first game of the season and he hasn’t practiced or played since. The Eagles game was the earliest where he could return according to the original three to four week timetable. Gruden said that he did nothing in practice today and is day to day. If Jackson can't get back into at least limited action on Thursday, the prospects of him playing would be extremely dim.
Riley left the team’s Week 2 game against the Rams with a strained calf. He did not play last Thursday against the Giants and missing practice today is not a good sign for Sunday.
Limited in practice were DE Kedric Golston (hand), OL Josh LeRibeus (calf), and CB Chris Culliver (knee).
Gruden also said that starting left guard Shawn Lauvao had to be put on injured reserve after having surgery to repair tendons and ligaments in his left ankle. The original diagnosis was a lateral sprain that would put him out for at least 3-4 weeks.
