Injury report for Redskins vs. Bears


Injured reserve

DE Stephen Paea (toe)—He suffered a Grade 2 plantar plate injury, also known as turf toe against the Cowboys. They decided that there was not enough season left for him to get better and ended his year by putting him on injured reserve.


ILB Perry Riley (foot)—A week after losing Chris Culliver for the season they lost Riley for at least a few weeks and perhaps the remainder of the regular season. He suffered a stress fracture in his right foot. After surgery to insert a pin he will be out for three to six weeks. Mason Foster started in his place last week and played well.

RB Chris Thompson (shoulder)—Thompson suffered a sprained AC joint during the Giants game and although he was able to go vs. Dallas he suffered a slight tear to his shoulder labrum. Matt Jones would take over his third-down duties.

S Jeron Johnson (hamstring)—He suffered the injury on the Jackson punt return play against Dallas. He didn’t practice all week and will sit this one out.

Questionable (50% chance player will play)

TE Derek Carrier (ankle/Achilles)—He missed the Cowboys game with a high ankle sprain and Achilles injury. This week was encouraging as he practiced fully on Thursday and Friday.

LB Keenan Robinson (shoulder)—Robinson was active against the Cowboys but he did not play a snap; he was dress only for emergency purposes. It appears that he has lost his starting job to Will Compton; it will be interesting to see if they work Robinson into the game in some defensive packages.

WR Andre Roberts (knee)—He was inactive against the Cowboys and did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday. If Roberts in out again, Rashad Ross will be up.

DE Jason Hatcher (shoulder/ankle)—The veterans suffered an ankle injury against the Cowboys, came back in and immediately was sidelined with a stinger. The MRI looked good but we will see if he can go.

Probable (virtually certain will play)

Also listed as probable are S Dashon Goldson (Knee/hamstring/wrist), LB Will Compton (shoulder), CB Quinton Dunbar (finger), CB Deshazor Everett (hamstring), CB DeAngelo Hall (toe).

    Injuries. A part of football or a part of being a Redskin? Obviously it is a part of football but holy cow! How do we an injury list like this more than 75% of weeks? How many week pre-season defensive starters will end their season on IR?

    always liked compton and yes he plays well but you telling me robinson who was the best lb lastyr leader of defense next to kerrigan, doesnt get a job back , clearly he was hurt most of year which hampered his play and that was reported by many ,injuries finally shut him down ie he’s healthy and ready to go he should most definitely be lining up opposite compton especially with riley out. Did foster do a gd job yes but krob is one of your leaders and a heck of a player when healthy the run D problems werent all on his shoulders and its not a problem thats been 100% fixed since he been out , sounds like another player having his worth devalued in a contract yr see alf, young not to mention how cover teams struggled without foster in his usual role,

      I’m a Keenan fan myself, but he simply hasn’t gotten it done this year. If Robinson can ever pull it all together, he’ll be a great ILB. Riley had a few good games but remains frustratingly inconsistent. In the meantime, Compton has looked great and Foster has done a bang-up job as well. The presumptive starters best step it up.

        I Really liked Keenan a lot also. I Do not know what happened to him. He looked like he was going to be beast last year.
        I thought I have seen good linebacker play until I saw Sean Lee. Man that dude is a crazy wrecking ball. Sean Lee was in on every single play, he knew exactly where the ball was going.
        I wonder if Dallas would trade Sean Lee for Rg3?! Jerry Jones said he is looking for a backup QB, someone to grow underneath Tony Rhomo. Sounds like a plan to me.

          Lee is good but not the beast that Kekely is in Carolina. Dallas would not trade him for RG3 or to any NFC team.

    Matt Jones would take over his third-down duties.

    Good chance for Matt to prove he can pick up the blitz, catch passes, and (not fumble the ball).

      If Jones will be handling third down duties in place of Thompson, why did we sign Pierre Thomas? For that matter, why is Thomas available this late in the season? Especially when some fans were calling for us to sign him during free agency.

    Robinson is riding the pine because he won’t play hurt. If they want tough players, then play hurt. Seems that players from the University of Texas share the softness. Archives
