Redskins-Eagles full injury report: Five Redskins questionable

Dec 25, 2015, 4:42 PM EDT


Injury report for Redskins vs. Eagles


Injured reserve

WR Andre Roberts (knee)—Jay Gruden hinted that this might happen prior to the Bills game when he said that he was going to consult with various people in his circle to see if he should have season-ending surgery to repair a torn meniscus. The move happened on Monday.


ILB Perry Riley (foot)—His broken foot continues to mend and he got some agility and conditioning work off to the side during practice this week. But he did not participate and he will miss his third game after what was described as a three- to five-week injury. Mason Foster will continue to start in his pla ce.

Questionable (50% chance player will play)

S Dashon Goldson (rib/knee/shoulder)—His latest injury is a broken rib he suffered against the Bills. “I think it would be a pretty significant injury for Goldson not to go,” said Gruden when asked about the defensive captain. This one doesn’t appear to be significant enough.

OT Morgan Moses (ankle)—Moses missed nearly all of the second half against the Bills with an ankle sprain and he seems to be very much a question mark. “He’s going to need the next couple of days, he really is,” Gruden said after Thursday’s practice. It sounds like he will be active on Saturday but it may be for emergency purposes only. Ty Nsekhe will start at right tackle if Moses can’t play.

WR Ryan Grant (abdomen)—Grant suffered a strained abdominal muscle against the Bills and he was limited in practice all week. If he can’t go, the Redskins will run with four active receivers.

RB Matt Jones (hip)—He got injured late in the Bills game and was limited in practice all week. If he can’t go Alfred Morris will be the main back and Pierre Thomas will get some action.

C Josh LeRibeus (ankle)—He missed the last series against the Bills after sustaining the injury. If he can’t go, Brian De La Puente will make his first Redskins start.

Probable (virtually certain will play)

WR DeSean Jackson (knee)—He aggravated a patella contusion, an injury you and I call a bruised kneecap, against the Bills. Although he didn’t practice Wednesday and has been limited since it would be the upset of the century if he didn’t play on Saturday against his former team.

RB Chris Thompson (shoulder)—Thompson has been recovering from a slight labrum tear. He was full-go in practice this week so he should be able to play. If he can’t, Matt Jones will handle the third down duties with perhaps an appearance here and there by Pierre Thomas.

DE Jason Hatcher (shoulder/ankle)—The veteran has been dealing with a stinger he sustained against the Cowboys and they have been trying to take it easy on his surgically-repair knee all year long.

S Jeron Johnson (hamstring)—He suffered the injury on the Jackson punt return play against Dallas. Johnson should be ready to return after being out the last two games.

S Jeron Johnson (hamstring)—He suffered the injury on the Jackson punt return play against Dallas. Johnson should be ready to return after being out the last two games.

Also listed as probable are LB Ryan Kerrigan (toe), LB Will Compton (neck), DE Kedric Golston (calf), DE Frank Kearse (finger), LB Keenan Robinson (shoulder), and TE Jordan Reed (shoulder)


Two starters are likely out for the Eagles. Nose tackle Bennie Logan, who suffered a calf injury against the Cardinals, and CB Byron Maxwell, who injured his shoulder in that game, did not practice all week. They are are both listed as questionable for this game.

Maxwell’s injury means that the Eagles will play rookie Eric Rowe at one corner and either former Redskin E. J. Biggers or rookie Jaylen Watkins at the other.

    Wait, is Josh LeRibeus questionable or probable? You have him listed in both places.

      Sorry, he’s questionable. That’ll teach me to try to do the injury report in between mashing the potatoes and baking the rolls.

        Guess that explains why you listed Johnson twice, huh? Lol

    I thought Rowe had a concussion?

    • Rich Tandler - Dec 26, 2015 at 6:22 AM

      He pass through the protocol earlier this week, didn’t miss a practice.
