Injury report for Redskins vs. Bills


Injured reserve

TE Derek Carrier (ankle/Achilles)—After missing the Cowboys game with an ankle injury, Carrier caught a pass early against the Bears and suffered a torn ACL and MCL as he got tackled.


ILB Perry Riley (foot)—Riley is out for at least a few weeks and perhaps the remainder of the regular season. He suffered a stress fracture in his right foot during practice. After surgery to insert a pin he will be out for three to six weeks. Mason Foster has been starting in his place last week and is playing well.

+WR Andre Roberts (knee)—He was inactive against the Cowboys and Bears with what was called an inflamed knee. But this week Gruden revealed that Roberts had undergone an MRI for a possible meniscus tear, an injury that would require surgery.

Questionable (50% chance player will play)

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. He was declared out against the Bears. Matt Jones would take over his third-down duties if he can’t go and Pierre Thomas would be active.

S Jeron Johnson (hamstring)—He suffered the injury on the Jackson punt return play against Dallas. Johnson was out against the Bears and has been limited in practice this week.

LB Keenan Robinson (shoulder)—Robinson was active against the Cowboys and Bears but he did not play a snap on defense; he was dressed 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.

DE Jason Hatcher (shoulder/ankle)—The veteran played through a nerve injury in his shoulder last week and although he has improved it looks like it will still be an issue is he plays on Sunday.

Probable (virtually certain will play)

WR DeSean Jackson (knee)—He has a patella contusion, an injury you and I call a bruised kneecap. Although he didn’t practice Wednesday and has been limited since. Jackson said earlier this week that there is no question he will play.

Also listed as probable are S Dashon Goldson (Knee/hamstring/wrist), OT Trent Williams (foot) LB Will Compton (shoulder), CB DeAngelo Hall (toe), WR Ryan Grant (abdomen)

    Ice up, people!

    We can win this thing. Just need to come out like we mean it from the opening kickoff.

      Totally with you thunder. I guarantee the Bills will be mean as heII this week and Rex Ryan will be egging them on to play so. Our Skins need to be ready to deal some punishment and watch out for cheap shots. Could be “Body Bag Game-ish”.

    Bacarri Rambo is going to smash the Redskins offense. He will be head hunting. I do not just running Desean Jackson on any crossing routes. Don’t go torwards the middle fellas Rambo is waiting for you.

      You’re acting like he has a reputation for being a big hitter. I don’t think Bacarri Rambo is really a feared player in the league. He’s no Sean Taylor. Every NFL safety is waiting for receivers to go toward the middle. It’s called being a safety. Relax with the hyperbole.

        Not exactly sure … but I think goback was just playin wid us all. Haha (Or hope so!)

        IIRC correctly, Barcadi couldn’t make a tackle to save his life (or save a big gainer for that matter!) while in B&G!

        And while Rumbro has shown out a couple times since he was “shown out” of Redskins Park, it hasn’t been for his big hits — moreso for a couple big takeaways.

        Still, I AM interested to see how he plays tomorrow.

      when has Rambo ever made big a hit? (not very many if any)
      He will be a step late because he will be waiting. Archives
