Injury report for Redskins-Packers: Three questionable for Washington

Injury report for Redskins-Packers: Three questionable for Washington

Redskins

Questionable

WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder)—After sitting out last week’s game against the Vikings Jackson has been a limited participant in practice and took part in team drills in the latter part of the week. He looks like his normal self in the part of practice that is open to the media and he believes he is ready to play but we’ll have to see if he can go on Sunday.

LS Nick Sundberg (back)—He tweaked his back in the weight room and he did not practice on Thursday or Friday. The team brought in some long snappers to try out on Friday; they will have until 4 p.m. Saturday to make a roster move.

OT Morgan Moses (ankle)—Moses missed the end of the Bengals game with the ankle sprain. He played last week, missing three plays after aggravating the injury. The third-year player practiced in full this week. Moses is experiencing some pain but it is likely that he is out there on Sunday night.

Not on injury report

S Will Blackmon (thumb)—Like Moses, it seems likely that Blackmon would have missed a game with his injury if not for the bye week. But he had the surgery about 24 hours after they got off the plane back from London and he will play with a couple of pins in his left thumb and a cast to protect it.

Packers

Out

G T. J. Lang (ankle)—Lang has been very durable, has missed just two games since becoming their starter in 2011. He suffered an ankle injury in the first quarter last week against the Titans and did not return. Don Barclay, who has filled in when needed since coming to the team in 2012, finished out the Titans game and will start in Lang’s place.

ILB Jake Ryan (ankle)—Ryan also suffered an ankle injury early against the Titans and left the game early. His absence will leave Blake Martinez and Joe Thomas as the only inside linebackers on the roster. Clay Matthews has played on the inside before but Packers media are reporting that he will play on the outside.

T J.C. Tretter (knee)—Tretter will miss his third straight game with an MCL sprain.

Questionable

OLB Clay Matthews (hamstring)—He has missed the last three games with the hamstring issue. The star pass rusher could be a game time decision. It looked like he was on track to play last week but a late setback had him sidelined again.

TE Jared Cook (ankle)—Cook has missed the last six games with the ankle issue.

“I look at Jared and Clay in a similar fashion,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “I thought they came out of the practice yesterday and did some good things. Today and tomorrow, hopefully we’re progressing to those guys playing on Sunday.”

Report: Trent Williams' dogs killed neighbor's dog

Report: Trent Williams' dogs killed neighbor's dog

Trent Williams is defending his dogs after neighbors of a home registered to him in Missouri City, Texas say the Redskins' lineman's dogs brutally killed their dog.

The neighbor's dog, Sandy, according to reports, died after being mauled and dragged under an iron fence on their own property. 

According to Williams, the attack began after Sandy instigated conflict with one of Williams' smaller pets. Williams felt his dogs did nothing wrong and said the animals were defending the smaller dog, who is fighting for its life after $5,000 in medical bills. 

Williams told FOX 26 Houston that the situation was "dogs doing what dogs do."

In comments to local television stations, Sandy's owner's described how they found their dog.

"I found my dog halfway ripped apart, head and one leg on the other side of the fence, two of those stakes ripped through the body and one leg just dangling," said Jerry Flowers.

"They drug her head through the fence," Linda Flowers said. "Half of her body was through the wrought iron fence."

Animal control and local police are no longer investigating the incident according to ABC 13. Williams was not cited for the incident.

Williams is on the non-football injury list for the Washington Redskins after ending his holdout halfway through the season.

Once the Redskins Ironman, Ryan Kerrigan moved to injured reserve

Once the Redskins Ironman, Ryan Kerrigan moved to injured reserve

The Redskins moved outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan to the injured reserve after he injured his calf last week against Green Bay. He will miss the remainder of the season. 

Kerrigan had started every game for Washington since 2011 until just three weeks ago, one of the most impressive streaks in the NFL at 139 straight starts. 

He missed the Panthers game due to a concussion, was able to come back from the Packers game and then hurt his calf. 

After three straight seasons with double-digit sacks, Kerrigan’s numbers were down this year. He will finish the season with just 5.5 sacks after posting 37 over the last few years. 

Dexter Manley holds the Redskins franchise record with 91 sacks. After bringing down Aaron Rodgers last week in Green Bay before his injury, Kerrigan got to 90 sacks. 

If he comes back healthy in 2020, Kerrigan would look prime to break the franchise record. He will be in the last year of his contract, however, and will account for nearly $12 million against the salary cap.

Should Washington release Kerrigan, which was once unthinkable, it would carry no salary cap hit. 

To replace Kerrigan on the active roster the Redskins signed Caleb Wilson from the Cardinals practice squad.
