As injuries mount and position battles come into focus, the Redskins have updated their unofficial depth chart ahead of Saturday's dress rehearsal against the Ravens. Here are the moves you should know about:
*With Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen out for the year, new tight Derek Carrier is listed as the No. 2 tight end behind Jordan Reed. It is interesting that Carrier leapfrogged the other five so quickly, particularly the ones who've been Washington's camp all offseason.
*The quarterback depth chart remains unchanged, with Kirk Cousins listed as Robert Griffin III’s backup. Colt McCoy is the third stringer.
*Trey Williams is now listed as the fourth running back, replacing Silas Redd, who has been lost for the season. Alfred Morris, Matt Jones and Chris Thompson are still the top three, respectively.
*Undrafted free agent inside linebacker Terrance Plummer (UCF) has replaced the injured Adam Hayward as Perry Riley’s backup. A tackling machine in college, Plummer (5-11, 231) is one of my dark horse candidates to snag a spot on the 53-man roster.
*Camp hopeful DaMon Cromartie-Smith has been moved from cornerback to fourth-string strong safety behind Duke Ihenacho, Jeron Johnson and Akeem Davis.
*Trey Wolfe has been moved up to fourth string CB1, replacing Deshazor Everette, who has been promoted to third string CB2. (Cromartie-Smith had been the third string CB2.)
*Chris Thompson is now listed as the first string kickoff returner, replacing Andre Roberts, who is still listed as the primary punt returner. Rookie Jamison Crowder, who could make his preseason debut Saturday, is the backup punt returner.
