The Washington Redskins will play Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers and then have a short layoff of just four days before they face divisional rival Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day. Here is the current injury report.
Overall, the Redskins are fairly health right now. The biggie is WR DeSean Jackson. Jackson missed last week due to a rotator cuff injury to his shoulder. He was expected to miss a few weeks. However, Jackson did return to practice yesterday, but in limited participation and not in pads. Jackson is currently listed as doubtful and we do not expect to see him active.
RT Morgan Moses has been hobbled for a few weeks with an ankle injury. That ankle injury was aggravated last week, as he left the locker room after the game in an air cast. Morgan will likely play through ankle pain, but it is concerning that it could worsen as the Redskins push for a wild card playoff berth. He has been stellar this season and his loss would be damaging tot he Redskins, especially considering they are without their Pro Bowl left bookend for another three games. We fully expect Moses to play this week.
TE Derek Carrier, who tore up a knee last December in a win over the Chicago Bears, was recently activated off the PUP list and got his first 9 snaps of the 2016 season last Sunday against the Vikings. Carrier replaced Niles Paul on the roster and you should expect to see more of him in the coming weeks.
Other than that, besides the significant injuries that have already hammered this roster, the Redskins are relatively healthy with the current squad. Moses and Jackson are significant injuries to watch, but the Redskins did come out of the 26-20 win over Minnesota in good shape.
