Washington Redskins Injury Report analysis – Week 6
Kai Forbath – K – right groin – Probable: Forbath will be back in the lineup for the first time since week one. The Redskins didn’t really miss him too much, but his return will be a plus to the team if he shows the form he had from last season.
Logan Paulsen – TE – Knee – Questionable: In week 4 the Redskins were without TE Jordan Reed, and now it appears Paulsen may not play against the Cowboys. However, the Redskins have good depth at the TE position.
Chris Neild – NT – Calf – Doubtful: If Neild can’t go, the Redskins can turn to Chris Baker as the backup to Barry Cofield at NT. With Jarvis Jenkins returning from suspension, Baker can slide back to NT from DE.
Alfred Morris – RB – Ribs – Probable: Morris had to leave the game late against the Raiders with a rib injury, but it seems the bye week did him some good, as he’s expected to start against the Cowboys. I still look for Roy Helu, Jr. to get more carries to keep Morris fresh for late in the game.
Jordan Reed – TE – Thigh – Probable: Reed missed week 4, but returns this week. He had started to emerge as a nice target for Robert Griffin III, and I look for that to continue. Reed will get more opportunities if Logan Paulsen can’t go.
Brandon Jenkins – LB – Ankle – Questionable: He hasn’t been a big contributor so far, but the Redskins haven’t needed him to be yet. And if OLB Rob Jackson returns to the lineup from suspension, then Jenkins won’t have to be forced into action.
Fred Davis – TE – Ankle – Probable: A healthy Fred Davis adds even more diversity to the passing game at TE, as he’s one of the Redskins best receivers.
