The Redskins let a lead slip away on Monday night in Kansas City and as a result, fell to 2-2 heading into the bye week.
But before we get to the bye week, it's best that we look back at Week 4 to see how Redskins players performed based on their snap count.
Here is my weekly look at playing time for the Redskins during their loss to the Chiefs:
— The number that jumps off the page is the 13 snaps for TE Jordan Reed. Yes, the total offensive snaps were limited to only 50 but that is still a low number. Jay Gruden admitted that Reed was on a snap limit, going in almost exclusively for pass plays (of the 13 snaps, one was a run play). The bye will be a welcome break for Reed as he recovers from a chest injury he suffered in Week 2.
— WR Josh Doctson played just 17 snaps. As JP Finlay noted, he needs to play more. The second-year player is by far the team’s most talented and dangerous wide receiver and he needs to be a staple in the offense, not a part-time wrinkle.
— RBs Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley played an equal number of snaps, 12, even though Kelley went out early with an ankle injury. Chris Thompson played by far the most RB snaps with 26.
— OT Trent Williams was the only one between the starting O-line and QB Kirk Cousins to miss any time. He was out four snaps dealing with an injured knee. T.J. Clemmings made his Redskins debut, filling in for Williams those four snaps plus lining up as an extra blocker on two plays.
— There were 76 defensive snaps and CB Bashaud Breeland and S D.J. Swearinger played all of them. LB Zach Brown missed just two snaps.
— The player who had the fourth-most defensive snaps was surprising. OLB Preston Smith, who played just 21 snaps against the Raiders, played a season-high 61 snaps. Fellow linebacker Ryan Kerrigan was just behind him with 57.
— With S Montae Nicholson missing some plays with injuries (played 46 snaps), S Stefan McClure made his NFL debut on defense with 12 snaps.
— Injuries at cornerback created an opportunity for CB Fabian Moreau. After playing a combined five snaps in the first three games he got 18 snaps.
— NT Ziggy Hood played the most among the interior defensive linemen with 44 snaps, followed by Matt Ioannidis with 40 and Jonathan Allen with 37. You might think that Allen should have played more because he was often dominant but maybe keeping him fresh allowed him to play so well.
— A healthy ILB Mason Foster normally would play nearly every snap. He still was dealing with his Week 2 shoulder separation and he was limited to 32. Martrell Spaight played 43 snaps.
