Washington Redskins Injury Report analysis – Week 13
Jose Gumbs – S – Ankle – Probable: Gumbs is a decent backup at safety, but more importantly he been one of the better performers on a weak special teams unit.
Niles Paul – TE – Illness – Questionable: Paul has missed most of practice this week with an illness, and seems unlikely to play on Sunday night. Paul is the kick off returner and also one of the better special teams players on coverage. If he can’t go it will definitely hurt the team special teams wise.
Jordan Reed – TE – Concussion – Questionable: Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III missed Reed last week against the 49ers, as Reed is one of the only receivers the Redskins have who can consistently get open. If he can’t go, it will be a huge loss again for the Redskins offense.
Darrell Young – FB – Hamstring – Questionable: Young has shown his value in recent weeks. Not only as a blocker for Alfred Morris, but also as a runner and receiver as well.
- Defensive end Stephen Bowen is out for the season with a knee injury. He will be replaced in the starting lineup by backup Chris Baker. Bowen has been solid, but baker brings more quickness and explosiveness off the line.
- If Jordan Reed and Niles Paul don’t play against the Giants, then the Redskins will need to get more out of Fred Davis and Logan Paulsen in the passing game.
