The Redskins are concerned about the availability of offensive tackle Morgan Moses for Saturday night’s pivotal game in Philadelphia, Coach Jay Gruden said.
“He’s going to need the next couple of days, he really is,” Gruden said after Thursday’s practice.
Meantime, free safety Dashon Goldson (fractured rib), wide receiver DeSean Jackson (foot/knee) and defensive end Jason Hatcher (neck/knee) returned to practice in a limited capacity after not participating at all on Wednesday.
“I think it would have to be a pretty significant injury for Goldson not to go,” Gruden said.
The big concern at the moment is Moses, who is rated as the third most effective right tackle in the game this year, according to ProFootballFocus.com. Moses suffered foot and ankle injuries against the Bills and has been limited all week.
“Morgan is going to need a little bit more time, so we’ll see how he does,” Gruden said. “I think he’ll be good enough to dress [against the Eagles], but we’ll see how he does come Saturday night. Pre-game warm-up and all that stuff will be a good test for him.”
If Moses is unable to go, he’ll be replaced in the lineup by Ty Nsekhe again. Nsekhe saw 28 snaps against Buffalo after Moses went down.
“He played well...we feel good about Ty,” Gruden said. “He’s been here all season. He’s busting his butt and he’ll have to step up if need be.”
Center Josh LeRibeus (ankle), running back Matt Jones (bruised hip) and wide receiver Ryan Grant (abdomen) were all limited for a second straight day. Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan (toe) was upgraded from limited to full participation, while fellow linebacker Perry Riley (foot) was limited to rehabbing off to the side.
