Washington Redskins – Injury Report analysis – Week 7
David Amerson – CB – Concussion – Questionable: Amerson had begun to play well, and his size would come in handy against the Chicago Bears big receivers. But if he can’t go the Redskins will have to look to E.J. Biggers and Jerome Murphy to step in.
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. Teaming up Davis with rookie Jordan Reed could give QB Robert Griffin III and advantage with two TE looks in the passing game on Sunday.
Brandon Jenkins – LB – Ankle – Probable: Adding another pass rusher to the mix is good news for the Redskins defense, but Jenkins could also be an even bigger help on special teams. The Redskins kick coverage teams were terrible last week, and maybe Jenkins could give them a shot in the arm if healthy enough.
Will Montgomery – C – Knee – Probable: The starting center is very important to the offense. And even though Montgomery didn’t have a very good performance against the Dallas Cowboys, his presence will still be vital for the Redskins to successfully take on the Bears defense.
Jerome Murphy – CB – Ankle – Probable: With rookie cornerback David Amerson questionable due to a concussion, Murphy being able to play against the Bears will be important to the defense depth wise, and also on special teams.
Chris Neild – NT – Calf – Probable: Neild being able to go gives the Redskins a lot of depth on the defensive line. As good as the Bears offensive line has been playing so far this season, the Redskins having a number of big bodies to throw up against them will be crucial.
Logan Paulsen – TE – Knee – Probable: The Redskins having their top three TE’s ready to go against the Bears is good news for not only the passing game, but also the running game. Paulsen is a very good blocking TE, and he could help open up more holes for Alfred Morris and company.
