TE Jordan Reed (shoulder)—The word heroic is thrown around too often when talking about what athletes do, in light if what, say, first responders do every day. But Reed playing in the second half out of the Dallas game with a third-degree AC joint sprain certainly was remarkable. But Gruden said that Reed won’t have sufficient range of motion in the shoulder or range of motion to be able to go against the Cardinals.
DE Anthony Lanier (leg)—The reserve lineman missed the second half of the Dallas game with a leg contusion. Gruden said he was kicked in the lower leg against the Cowboys and the swelling is still an issue.
LS Nick Sundberg (back)—He tweaked his back in the weight room before the Packers game and missed that game and the one against the Cowboys. He was a full go in practice all week and will return against the Cardinals.
G Brandon Scherff (ankle)—He has been limited in practice during the week but it seems certain that he will go against the Cardinals.
T Ty Nsekhe (ankle)—Ditto comment on Scherff above.
CB Bashaud Breeland (ankle)—He suffered the injury in practice this week and he was limited in practice on Thursday.
RB Chris Thompson (illness)—He was limited in practice during the week but he said in the locker room he will have his usual role on Sunday.
Also questionable for the Redskins: ILB Terence Garvin (shoulder) and DE Ricky Jean Francois (knee)
S Tyrann Matthieu (shoulder)—He missed a couple of games with the shoulder injury and he was out of practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. Cardinals coach Brude Arians said that he will be a game time decision.
WR John Brown (illness)—He has been battling symptoms of sickle-cell trait and it caused cramping on Wednesday.
Not on injury report
CB Patrick Peterson (knee)—Perhaps the Cardinals’ best player suffered a knee injury last Sunday and he has been limited after missing practice on Wednesday. It looks like he will go but the Redskins will surely test his effectiveness.
