The bye week seems to have helped the Redskins get back to good health. 

Both RB Adrian Peterson and CB Josh Norman were injured late in the game the last time the Redskins played, which was on September 23 against the Packers. Peterson suffered a sprained ankle on the last of his 19 rushing attempts in the game and Norman strained a hamstring in the late going. 

Both said during the week that the week off was a blessing and both will play as the Redskins get back to work when they take on the Saints in New Orleans. When Washington issued the final injury report for the game, neither player was on it. 

Another player who was injured against Green Bay was tackle Morgan Moses, who suffered a concussion. Jay Gruden said earlier this week that Moses had been cleared out of the concussion protocol.

Two players are listed as questionable. Left tackle Trent Williams had surgery to repair a bursa sac in his knee the day after the Packers game. He was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday and a full participant on Saturday. On Friday, he indicated to reporters that he will be able to play.

The status of the other player listed as questionable, Josh Doctson, is much less clear. Gruden said that he got kicked in the heel during practice on Monday and he did not practice all week. He will be a game-time decision. 

Out are S Troy Apke, who will miss his third straight game with a hamstring injury, and G Shawn Lauvao, out for the second game in a row with a strained calf.
