Neither team in Thursday’s game will be going in entirely healthy. That is not shocking news in Week 11 of the NFL season.
For the Redskins two key players are questionable. Linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) and wide receiver Pierre Garçon (toe) both practiced on a limited basis and will be game time decisions. For Fletcher, it simply will be a matter of if he can run and cut on that ankle. They know the condition of Garçon’s toe but they want to see how it does on the Cowboys Stadium field turf before saying whether or not he’ll suit up.
Josh Wilson (shoulder) and Logan Paulsen (hip) are both probable.
It is safe to say that the Cowboys are a bit more banged up.
Two key Cowboys, left tackle Tyron Smith (ankle) and running back Felix Jones (knee) are questionable and will be game time decisions. Earlier in the week it was reported that Smith, who has the dreaded high ankle sprain, would not be able to play but now there seems to be some hope.
With first-string running back DeMarco Murray out since Week 5 with a sprained foot, Jones’ status becomes critical. If Jones can’t play, undrafted rookie Lance Dunbar would get the starting nod. He has 67 yards on 20 carries this year.
Wide receiver Kevin Ogletree is out with a concussion and Pro Bowl nose tackle Jay Ratliff is questionable with a groin injury.
