The Redskins returned to practice on Thursday to begin preparing for their Monday night showdown against the Cowboys. And, for a change, they appeared pretty healthy. Here’s a rundown of their injury concerns:
- CB Quinton Dunbar (open dislocation of finger) was on the field and in pads. His fingers were taped together, but he did not appear encumbered (much, anyway) as he caught passes during individual drills.
- TE Derek Carrier (high ankle sprain/Achilles soreness) was not in pads. He missed all but two snaps against the Giants and is probably the biggest concern at the moment.
- WR Andre Roberts (knee swelling) was also off to the side. Jay Gruden said on Monday that he’s day-to-day.
- RB Chris Thompson (AC joint sprain) was in pads and practicing. He should be good to go against Dallas.
- DL Chris Baker was not present. Gruden will surely update his status after practice.
- DE Jason Hatcher (knee) was rehabbing off to the side with C Kory Lichtensteiger (neck). Hatcher has often used the first practice of the week as a maintenance day but has not missed a game this season. Lichtensteiger can only return if the team qualifies for the playoffs, which looks significantly more probable today than it did just a week ago.
- LB Keenan Robinson (shoulder), S Trent Robinson (hamstring) and CB Dashazor Everett (hamstring) were on the field in pads and practicing. K. Robinson, according to the unofficial depth chart, has lost his starting job to Will Compton. He’s been sidelined the past three games.
Coach Jay Gruden will provide a more detailed update after practice.
