Redskins Injury Report Week 5
The Washington Redskins only had three days rest to go along with a long list of injuries going into their last game against the Giants. After a a game they would like to forget on that Thursday night, the Redskins will now be going into their Monday Night game against the Seahawks on 10 days rest.
The break was well needed for a Redskins team that had injuries from one side of the field to the other.
The only players who sat out practice on Sunday were Tracy Porter (hamstring) and Jordan Reed (hamstring). Reed sat out in hopes that rest would keep him healthy and get him in playing shape for Monday Night.
Gruden spoke about the injury report to reporters today:
“Tracy Porter will be out. He did not practice. Obviously, he’s out. Trenton Robinson was limited. He’ll be questionable. Kedric Golston was limited. Akeem Jordan was full. Shawn Lauvao was full. Niles Paul was full. Jordan Reed did not participate today. We’re going to make sure he gets another full day of rest and we’ll evaluate him tomorrow again. Trent was limited – Trent Williams. And then everybody else was full – Chris Baker, [Jason] Hatcher, DeSean [Jackson], Jarvis [Jenkins] and Rak [Brian Orakpo].”
Jay Gruden had this to say in regards to Reed playing.
“He’s been running, but full speed I can’t tell. I haven’t seen him run in a long time. I don’t know what his full speed is right now. That’s what we’re going to look at tomorrow and see what he can do, let him stretch it out a little bit and if he doesn’t feel like he can run full speed then obviously we’ll hold him out. But we’ll take a look at him tomorrow. It’s 50/50 – that’s what questionable is.”
Niles Paul, Shawn Lauvao and Akeem Jordan all were full participants in practice Saturday.
Paul has cleared the concussion protocol test given to gauge if a player can physically play after a concussion. With the way the Seahawks lock down receivers, Paul will likely be called on to get a full load of targets on Monday.
Lauvao will likely get the start at left guard.
For Akeem Jordan this weekend will be his chance to finally debute in the burgundy and gold after spending the first 4 weeks of the season hurt.
Tackle Trent Williams will be a game-time decision.
