Final injury report: Three Redskins out for Sunday

Final injury report: Three Redskins out for Sunday

Redskins

Out

C Spencer Long (concussion)—He missed the second half of the Cardinals game and has been in the concussion protocol this week. John Sullivan will start in his place.

S Will Blackmon (concussion)—Blackmon also has been in the concussion protocol and has not practiced all week. Donte Whitner and Duke Ihenacho will handle the safety position.

DE Anthony Lanier (leg)—The reserve lineman missed the Arizona game with a leg contusion. Gruden said he was kicked in the lower leg against the Cowboys and the swelling is still an issue.

Questionable

G Shawn Lauvao (groin)—It was a surprise to see him watching practice on Wednesday as no injury had been reported for him. But he came in for treatment and did not practice on Wednesday and Thursday. If he can’t go, Arie Kouandjio will start at left guard.

OT Ty Nsekhe (ankle)—Fortunately Trent Williams is back from his suspension; Nsekhe was the starter while he was out. If Nsekhe is out, Vinston Painter will be the swing backup tackle.

TE Jordan Reed (shoulder)—After missing last week’s game with a third-degree separation of the AC join in his left shoulder, Reed was able to practice on a limited basis this week. If range of motion is still an issue he could sit or play very limited snaps. If it’s a matter of pain tolerance he will be a full go.  

G Brandon Scherff (ankle)—He has been limited in practice during the week but it seems certain that he will go against the Eagles.

DE Chris Baker (ankle)—Baker missed some practice this week but he should be able to go against the Eagles although his level of effectiveness will bear watching.

Also questionable for the Redskins: DE Ricky Jean Francois (knee), OLB Preston Smith (groin), ILB Will Compton (hip), TE Derek Carrier (knee)

Eagles

Questionable

WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) and RB Ryan Matthews (knee) were full in practice all week and it seems likely that the Eagles’ leading receiver and rusher, respectively, will play on Sunday. Up in the air is the status of WR Dorial Green-Beckham (oblique), who missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

RT Halapoulivaati Vaitai (knee) will miss his third straight game. He had a rough start in his NFL debut against the Redskins in Week 6 but he remained the starter until getting injured in Week 11. Since then the Eagles have moved LG Alan Barbre to right tackle with Stefen Wisniewski going in at left guard.

Redskins sign Matt Ioannidis to three-year extension, per report

Matt Ioannidis is staying in Washington.

The Redskins are signing the defensive end to a three-year contract extension, according to sources of NFL Network's Mike Garafolo

The extension comes with a base value of $21.75 million with another $3 million in incentives.

Drafted in the fifth round by the Redskins in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Temple, Ioannidis started nine games for the Burgundy and Gold in 2018, posting a career-high 7.5 sacks, 31 combined tackles, 23 solo tackles, eight assist and six tackles for a loss. 

"It doesn't surprise me," head coach Jay Gruden said on the Redskins Talk podcast back in November. "I know it surprises a lot of people, but he's a good player."

With those releases came some insanely creative promotional videos from NFL teams. Here are some of the best ones from around the league.

1. Carolina Panthers: Old school video games

We're feeling very nostalgic and ready to dust off our Nintendo 64 after watching this. The Panthers highlighted their 16 matchups with different old school video games like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, The Oregon Trail and James Bond 007.

2. Baltimore Ravens: Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!

The Ravens' monster truck rally parody is too good not to include.

3. Los Angeles Chargers: Stock footage

The Chargers' social media accounts are known for their humor, and they didn't hold back when it came to their schedule release video using strictly stock footage. 

4. Pittsburgh Steelers: Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

Remember when you would stay home from school sick and watch the Price is Right and Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood all day long? Those were the days. The Steelers' video has us feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. 

5. Buffalo Bills: Dating app

If you're single in the 21st century, chances are you've tried out a dating app once (or maybe twice) in your life. The Bills have matches with 16 special teams. 

6. New York Giants: Tracy Morgan

Anything with Tracy Morgan in it makes it that much better. 

7. Cleveland Browns: Dial up

There was nothing quite like getting home from a long day at school, turning on your computer, waiting for your dial up to take effect and hearing "You've got mail" from the sweet AOL lady. That's how Browns GM John Dorsey learned of his team's 2019 schedule. 

8. Washington Redskins: Game of Thrones

In case you've been living in a very, very deep hole the last week, the first episode of Game of Thrones' final season aired Sunday sending the universe into a frenzy. Here's the Redskins' 2019 schedule with a nod to GoT's intro.
