Redskins Week 10 injury report: Williams, Reed among 12 questionable

Redskins Week 10 injury report: Williams, Reed among 12 questionable

At first glance, the Redskins’ injury picture looks better than it has the last few weeks. But we will have to wait until the inactive list is announced on Sunday to know for sure who is in and who is out.

Out

DE Matt Ioannidis is recovering his broken hand. He did some light work but he did not practice this week.

DE Arthur Jones suffered a separated shoulder in his Redskins debut in Seattle last week.

With those two out, the Redskins are going into the game with just four defensive linemen. It’s possible that they could make a roster move and promote Tavaris Barnes or Ondre Pipkins to the active roster.

Questionable

OT Trent Williams (knee) practiced today for the first time in over a month. He will be evaluated after practice today and tomorrow to see if he will be able to play after missing the last two games. “If he feels like he can go, I’m sure he will go,” said Jay Gruden.

G Brandon Scherff (knee) nearly was able to play against the Seahawks last week but he was held out. The chances for a return on Sunday look good.

G Shawn Lauvao (stinger) looks to be ready to return to the lineup after missing one game.

C Spencer Long (knees) seems to be rounding into being ready to play but it would not be surprising if the stuck with Chase Roullier at center for another week.

OT Morgan Moses (ankles) has been playing on a pair of sprained ankles for the last few weeks and he will again on Sunday.

It will be ironic if OT Ty Nsekhe (core muscle) is ready to play since he went out with his injury a week before Williams’ knee got injured.

It’s hard to get a read on hamstring injuries. WR Jamison Crowder and TE Jordan Reed could go on Sunday. It seems a little more likely that we’ll see Crowder than Reed, who did not practice on Friday.

It’s even more difficult to predict a player’s status when he is in the concussion protocol, so we will have to wait and see of WR Brian Quick and TE Niles Paul are cleared to play on Sunday.

Last week S Montae Nicholson (shoulder) was active but he did not dress. The Redskins had more injured players than they had inactive slots. He has been limited in practice all week so we will see if he can go on Sunday.

LB Zach Brown did not practice on Thursday with an ankle injury but there is little doubt that he will play.

Terrelle Pryor, DJ Swearinger get into heated exchange during Day 3 of Redskins-Jets practice

Terrelle Pryor, DJ Swearinger get into heated exchange during Day 3 of Redskins-Jets practice

The Redskins' joint practices with the Jets have been nothing short of entertaining.

Day 1 of practice brought a couple of brawls between the two teams, with one spilling into the sideline where fans were standing. 

Day 2 was relatively calm, but Day 3 has brought another altercation, this time between former teammates Terrelle Pryor and DJ Swearinger. 

During a one-on-one rep, safety Monte Nicholson broke up a pass to Pryor. As Pryor started walking back to the sideline, a very hyped-up DJ Swearinger had more than a few things to say about it. As the two inched closer, Swearinger fakes a punch, causing Pryor to flinch and creating roars from the Redskins sideline. 

It's clear the Redskins' DBs have strong feelings towards their ex-teammate. Back in June, inside linebacker Zach Brown said the 'Skins would "have it out" for Pryor during their joint practices. 

While Pryor won't be playing in Thursday's preseason game, let's hope the competition continues over nonetheless.

Redskins release CB Orlando Scandrick

Redskins release CB Orlando Scandrick

RICHMOND—Orlando Scandrick’s career with the Redskins ended without him even playing a game.

Head coach Jay Gruden confirmed reports that the team has released Scandrick on the last day of training camp. He did not play in the Redskins’ preseason opener against the Patriots last Thursday.

While reasons for the release will become clearer with time, it is apparent that the Redskins have a great deal of faith in their young cornerbacks, particularly second-year player Fabian Moreau. With Scandrick on the team, Moreau was slated to be the backup slot corner. With Scandrick now gone, the Redskins likely will go with Moreau as the slot cornerback.

The team also apparently has confidence in Quinton Dunbar to start opposite Josh Norman. They also like rookies Greg Stroman, Adonis Alexander, and Danny Johnson. As of now, those three are the backups at cornerback.

Scandrick signed a two-year, $7 million contract in March. The only guaranteed money was a $1 million signing bonus. The move will save the Redskins $2.1 million in cap space this year. They will take a $500,000 dead cap hit next year to account for the prorated portion of the signing bonus.
