Redskins vs. Packers injury report: Four questionable for Washington

Jan 8, 2016, 2:46 PM EDT


Injury report for Redskins vs. Packers


Injured reserve

DB Kyshoen Jarrett (arm)—The versatile DB had a head-on collision with Cowboys running back Darren McFadden and he was on the field for several minutes before going to the locker room. There is concern that there is some nerve damage in his right arm. Jay Gruden said that they were hopeful that he will recover fully but it’s too early to know for certain.

Questionable (50 percent chance player will play)

CB Quinton Dunbar (quad)—The nickel corner suffered the injury in the Eagles game and was out against the Cowboys. He has been improving this week and Gruden said “signs are pointing in a positive direction with him.”

S Dashon Goldson (rib/knee/shoulder)—He played 81 snaps against the Eagles with a broken rib and he was out against the Cowboys Goldson has played through a variety of injuries most of the season. It seems certain that he will play.

ILB Perry Riley (foot)—His broken foot continues to mend and he has been limited in practice for the past two weeks. He could be active as a reserve and play in some packages but the chances are good that Mason Foster will continue to start.

RB Matt Jones (hip)—He got injured late in the Bills game and he was out against the Eagles and Cowboys. Jones did not look very nimble during the portions of practice open to reporters and he did not seem to be optimistic about his chances of playing. If he is out, Pierre Thomas will be active.

Probable (virtually certain will play)

DE Jason Hatcher (neck/knee)—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. It is likely that he will start as he has all year long.

OT Trent Williams (knee/foot)—Williams rested last week against the Cowboys and it appeared to do him some good after the grind of the season.

CB Dashaun Phillips (neck)—There was great concern when he was carted off of the field in Dallas and was immediately taken to a local hospital. But the injury turned out to be a stinger and he has practiced fully all week.

Also listed as probable are WR DeSean Jackson (knee), S Jeron Johnson (chest), and RB Chris Thompson (toe).


(Note: The Packers frequently update their injury list after their walkthrough on Saturday so check back here tomorrow to see if there are any changes.)

Doubtful (75 percent chance player will not play)–CB Sam Shields (concussion): Their starting cornerback has missed the last three games with a concussion and it seems very likely that he will miss a fourth straight. Casey Hayward and Quinten Rollins will start at cornerback.

Update: Shields has been ruled out of Sunday’s game. 

Questionable (50 percent chance player will not play)–This list is headed up by left tackle David Bahktiari, who has missed the last two games with an ankle injury. The Packers have given up 14 sacks in his absence. It appears that he will be a game time decision.

Also questionable are three reserves, LB Jay Elliott (quad), DE Datone Jones (neck), and TE Justin Perillo.

Probable (virtual certainty will play)–G Josh Sitton (back), OT Bryan Bulaga (ankle), OT Mike Daniels (hamstring), DT Leroy Guion (foot), RB Eddie Lacy (rib), G T. J. Lang (neck), C Corey Linsley (ankle), LB Mike Neal (hip), LB Nick Perry (shoulder), G Lane Taylor (knee), LB Clay Matthews (ankle), LB Andy Mulumba (knee), and CB Damarious Randall (groin)

    I hope Dunbar is in there (full strength), he’s been awesome for us.

    Hope Jarrett is ok. He was very good despite a trial-by-fire this season, and I’d like to see him continue to develop.

    Hope Bahktiari doesn’t play. (Or if he does, he’s really limited.)

    That could be a BIG key in this game.

      If he plays attack him straight away…see how he is….would imagine he far from 100%

      Would love offense to start with empty backfield….spread packers out…see how they match up. …let them know they gonna get challenged….

      Looks like jones….rgiii…twi inactives…wonder who other five b?

    Got tickets to the game! Just arrived in Richmond from N. Carolina and heading off to D.C. tomorrow.
    HAIL YEH!!!

    I am very happy about the great season the Redskins had win or lose this Packers game. This team is heading in the right direction which is great to see. There is going to be a lot of pressure next season to keep this thing going as we will be expected to make the playoffs again next year. I cant wait to see what the future holds for the Washington Redskins. HAIL YEAH!!!
