CB Quinton Dunbar (quad)—The nickel corner missed practice this week with the quad injury. He could end up inactive to get a week to heal. It is likely that Deshazor Everett will play nickel corner if Dunbar is out.
S Dashon Goldson (rib/knee/shoulder)—He played 81 snaps against the Eagles with a broken rib. Goldson has played through a variety of injuries most of the season. It’s likely that the will get this week to heal before the Redskins go into the playoffs. Kyshoen Jarrett will play in his place if he is out.
Doubtful (25% chance player will play)
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. He participated in practice on a limited basis some this week but he could be another week away from returning. Mason Foster will continue to start in his place.
RB Matt Jones (hip)—He got injured late in the Bills game he was out against the Eagles. Jones suffered a setback in practice this week. If he is out, Pierre Thomas will be active.
Questionable (50% chance player will play)
CB DeAngelo Hall (calf)—After suffering a calf strain late in the Eagles game Hall was concerned that it might be a long-term issue. But it turned out to be relatively minor. He might be a game time decision if this game counted for anything; as it is, he will probably sit out.
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. If at all possible, the Redskins would like to keep him inactive this game and start Ricky Jean Francois at right defensive end.
OT Trent Williams (knee/foot)—This is not a particular injury, just Williams showing some wear and tear of the season. Jay Gruden said yesterday that it was possible that Williams will be active and dress for the game but only play if there is an emergency.
RB Pierre Thomas (knee)—Gruden said that Thomas tweaked his knee in practice on Wednesday. If he can go he could get a fairly heavy workload.
WR DeSean Jackson (knee)—He aggravated a patella contusion, an injury you and I call a bruised kneecap, against the Bills. Jackson has been limited in practice and his play on Sunday is likely to be limited.
Probable (virtually certain will play)
OT Morgan Moses (ankle)—Moses missed nearly the entire second half against the Bills with an ankle sprain and he was very much a question mark going into the Eagles game. But he played every snap and practiced all week so it appears that he is good to go against the Cowboys.
Also listed as probable are WR Ryan Grant (abdomen), CB Will Blackmon (shin/hip), LB Will Compton (shin), WR Ryan Grant (abdomen), C Josh LeRibeus (ankle), LB Keenan Robinson (shoulder) and RB Chris Thompson (shoulder)
