Jackson, two corners are active for the Redskins

FOXBOROUGH, MA--The Redskins will have all of their offensive weapons on the field for the first time since Week 1 as they take their toughest test of the season. 

DeSean Jackson is active for the first time since the season opener. He left that game in the first quarter with a hamstring strain and he has not been active for a game yet. 

Cornerbacks Chris Culliver and Bashaud Breeland also will play after being listed as questionable on the final injury report. Culliver has missed the last three games with an inflamed knee and Breeland pulled a hamstring late in the Redskins last game on October 25, putting his status in doubt all week. 

Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan also will play after suffering a broken hand in the first half of the last game. He had surgery to put some pins in the third metatarsal bone in his right hand. 

It's not all good news for the Redskins who were on the questionable list. Cornerback DeAngelo Hall (toe) and center Kory Lichtensteiger) are inactive.

Also on the inactive list is NT Terrance Knighton. "Pot Roast" did not make the trip here as he is suffering from cluster headaches. 

The other, apparently healthy inactive players are:

  • WR Rashad Ross
  • QB Robert Griffin III
  • DE Frank Kearse
  • TE Anthony McCoy

How's the knee? Trent Williams looks beyond ready in workout videos

How's the knee? Trent Williams looks beyond ready in workout videos

Trent Williams went under the knife for his first-ever knee surgery about seven months ago.

Plenty of Redskins fans worried that the Pro Bowl left tackle might not be ready to go when the 2018 season starts.

Worry no more. 

Yes, that is Williams working out with veteran running back Adrian Peterson. And by the looks of it, Williams' knee looks just fine. 

Williams tore his right patella tendon last fall, but continued to play through the pain while the Redskins chances of a playoff bid remained. Once that window got firmly closed after an ugly Thursday night loss in Dallas, Williams contemplated sitting out, but other injuries on the line had already decimated the Redskins. Eventually, Williams shut down his season after a blowout loss in Los Angeles to open December. 

This offseason, Williams got the knee repaired. Washington coach Jay Gruden said repeatedly during the offseason that he expected Williams ready to go for training camp, and the workout videos suggest that to be the case.

This is great news for the Redskins offense, and for new quarterback Alex Smith. Expect Washington to be cautious with Williams, particularly in the early going of training camp in Richmond, but like Trent tweeted, "the walk says it all."
