Here’s a look at who played how much against the Raiders (snap counts via Pro Football Focus):

Offense 66 snaps

QB/O-line: Robert Griffin III, Trent Williams, Kory Lichtensteiger, Will Montgomery, Chris Chester, Tyler Polumbus all played 66

This group is now 285/285 for the season

Wide receivers: Pierre Garçon 62, Leonard Hankerson 42, Santana Moss 20, Josh Morgan 19, Aldrick Robinson 5

Morgan’s played his fewest snaps of the season while Hankerson continues to play about two thirds of the offensive plays. You have to wonder if the drop in the end zone against the Lions hurt Robinson’s playing time; he had played double-digit snaps in the three previous games.

Tight ends: Logan Paulsen 65, Niles Paul 28, Fred Davis 5

Davis may not have been 100 percent but it seems that he has more work to do to get out of whatever doghouse he’s in. The main beneficiary of Jordan Reed being inactive was Paul; he had played a total of eight offensive snaps in the first three games.

Running backs: Roy Helu Jr. 35, Alfred Morris 31, Darrel Young 18

Morris’ injury, which happened well before he left the game, gave Helu more action than he would have had even though he has played more snaps in two of the previous three games than he did on Sunday.

Defense 66 snaps

Defensive line: Stephen Bowen 55, Barry Cofield 52, Kedric Golston 38, Chris Baker 23, Chris Neild 6

It turned out to be fortunate that the Redskins kept two reserves to can play nose tackle active as Neild went out with a calf injury in the first half.

Linebacker: Perry Riley 64, Ryan Kerrigan 63, London Fletcher 60, Brian Orakpo 54, Darryl Tapp 15, Nick Barnett 6

Tapp played the most that he has all year and that helped him get his first sack as a Redskin.

Defensive back: Brandon Meriweather 66, Josh Wilson 61, DeAngelo Hall 61, David Amerson 32, E. J. Biggers 28, Jordan Pugh 6

We saw some rotation and substitution in the backfield after the starters played virtually every snap against the Lions.
