Redskins Injury Update: Who’s in, Who’s out Vs Rams?

1.  Tom Compton  T – Calf – Questionable 

Compton is listed as the backup left tackle, so this could come into play if Trent Williams goes down to an injury.  The Redskins would have to turn to Ty Nsekhe if Compton can’t go.  Also, Compton has been used as a blocking tight end, so the offense could be effected there as well.

2.  DeAngelo Hall – CB – Rib – Probable 

Hall suffered a rib injury in week one early in the first half against the Miami Dolphins.  He was able to return to the game and played well after he did.  With Chris Culliver not playing this week and David Amerson still struggling, the Redskins will need Hall to play well.

3.  DeSean Jackson – WR – Hamstring – Out:  

Jackson is the Redskins best deep threat and he’ll miss 3-4 weeks with a hamstring injury he suffered against the Dolphins.  The Redskins will look to Ryan Grant, Jamison Crowder and Rashad Ross to pick up the slack.

4.  Jackson Jeffcoat – OLB – Thigh – Questionable 

Jeffcoat played extremely well in the preseason leading the team in sacks.  The Redskins have others to turn to in front of him on the depth chart but he could missed most importantly on special teams.

5.  Terrance Knighton – NT – Rib – Questionable 

Terrance Knighton is the first true nose tackle the Washington Redskins have had in their 3-4 defense and his presence is vital for the Redskins run defense.  The Redskins have Chris Baker and Kedric Golston if Knighton can’t go but it looks like he will.

6.  Kory Lichtensteiger – C – Finger – Probable 

Lichtensteiger would have had his hands full last week with Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh and now this week he has Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers to deal with.  Hopefully the finger injury won’t bother him to much but we’ll see how it affects him in the game.

5.  Jordan Reed – TE – Quad – Questionable:  

We saw last week what a tremendous asset Jordan Reed can be to the Washington Redskins offense when he’s healthy.  The problem is he can’t stay on the field long enough to consistent.  So hopefully he’ll be able to go and be effective on Sunday.

Reed has said the injury won’t keep him from playing but he’s only been limited in practice.  Right now it’s looking like Reed will play but if not, the Redskins will be very thin a tight end as Derek Carrier is the only other tight end who played in week one.

6.  Justin Rogers – CB – Foot – Out:  

Rogers had emerged as the slot corner for the Redskins and with Chris Culliver out a game serving a suspension, they had go out and sign Will Blackmon to come in help add some depth at corner.

7.  Martrell Spaight – ILB – Concussion – Out:  

Spaight is a reserve inside linebacker and primary special teams performer.  The Redskins will bring up Terrance Plummer from the practice squad to step in for Spaight.

8.  Trent Williams – LT – Ankle – Probable:  

Williams is dealing with an ankle injury suffered in week one but will play.  With the Redskins taking on one of the best defensive lines in football, they’ll need Williams badly.
