RICHMOND—Here is what to look for as the Redskins get back to work after a day off on Sunday.

The schedule:

Monday: 10:35 walkthough, 3:00 practice.
Tuesday: 10:35 walkthough, 3:00 practice.
Wednesday: 10:35 walkthough, 3:00 Special teams practice.
Thursday: 10:35 walkthough, 3:00 practice.
Friday: Off
Saturday: 1:30 practice, Fan appreciation day
Sunday: 10:35 walkthough, 3:00 practice.

Expect the Monday, Tuesday, and Saturday practices to be in pads along with possibly Thursday.

Injury watch:

Will TE Jordan Reed (toe) be back? He could be but if he is he likely only participates in individual drills. I don’t think they will risk him in team work until next week or perhaps even later.

WR Jamison Crowder (hamstring) missed Saturday’s practice but as a precaution, per team PR. He may get another day or two off but he should return this week. Same with DL Anthony Lanier (knee).

WR Maurice Harris (knee) and TE Derek Carrier (ankle) could miss all week. Both can ill-afford to miss the time. Carrier is very much on the bubble and while Harris is in, he needs the practice time if he wants to move up the depth chart.

On the field

—Will rookie DL Jonathan Allen continue to line up with the first unit? He did so for the first time on Saturday. It’s hard to read much into Jim Tomsula’s line rotation but if Allen is with the ones more often than not it could be a sign that he is navigating the rookie learning curve well.

QB Kirk Cousins was streaky the first two days of camp and mostly off on Saturday. He needs to take command and string together some quality practices.

—Can CB Kendall Fuller continue to work towards securing a top spot in the cornerback rotation? He has been picking off passes left and right and is looking more like the guy the Redskins thought he was when they drafted him in the third round.

—Sticking with the quarterback spot, can Nate Sudfeld get it together. He has had a few good moments but his play mostly has ranged from bad to very bad.

—With RB Keith Marshall out, can RB Matt Jones push his way into contention for a roster spot? He is still a long shot as he appears to remain in the coaches’ doghouse but there may be more carries available to him in practice and, perhaps more importantly, in the preseason games.
