Washington Redskins – Injury Report analysis – Week 9
Stephen Bowen - DE - Shoulder/Knee – Probable: Bowen played well against the Broncos last week with the knee injury, and didn’t seem to be affected. The Redskins will need him this week against the Chargers, especially against a passer like Philip Rivers.
Reed Doughty - S - Concussion – Probable: Doughty hasn’t done too bad since stepping into the starting the lineup at safety. The defense held up for three quarters against the Broncos, and maybe Doughty’s presence could have made a difference in the fourth quarter. It will be boost for the Redskins to have their starting safeties back in the lineup.
Pierre Garcon - WR - Calf – Probable: He practiced all week, and will be good to go for the Sunday. With the passing game the way it is right now, the Redskins will need Garcon on the field.
Robert Griffin III - QB - knee – Probable: RGIII hurt his left knee against the Broncos, and not his surgically repaired knee. However, he walked off the field and was examined by doctors and was determined to be fine. How much this affects his mobility, we will have to see on Sunday.
Jose Gumbs - DB - Ankle – Questionable: Gumbs started at safety against the Broncos and was OK in relief. But with the starters back at safety, Gumbs’ biggest impact will felt on special teams if he is able to play.
Leonard Hankerson - WR - Foot – Probable: Apparently Hankerson hurt his foot while playing with his child the previous week before the Broncos game. He caught a TD pass from RGIII last week, but was otherwise not a factor.
Chris Neild - NT - Calf – Probable: It’s a question of depth for the Redskins at nose tackle with Neild. He’s listed as probable, so he should be able to spell Barry Cofield against the Chargers.
Logan Paulsen - TE - Knee - Probable: Paulsen was probable last week too, and he played against the Broncos. He’s the Redskins best blocking TE, so he’s important to the running game, and he’s not a half bad receiver as well.
Chris Thompson - RB - Shoulder – Probable: Thompson has been playing primarily on special teams, and won the kick returner job out of preseason, but lately that task has been performed by Joshua Morgan.
