Full Redskins injury report: Riley out, six are questionable

Injury report for Redskins vs. Cowboys

Redskins

Waived/injured

S Trenton Robinson (hamstring)He was able to get out on the practice field earlier this week but he tweaked the hamstring again and the team decided to put him on the shelf. He could revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers.

Out

ILB Perry Riley (foot)—For the second straight Thursday the Redskins suffered a devastating practice injury. A week after losing Chris Culliver for the season they lost Riley for at least a few weeks and perhaps the remainder of the regular season. He suffered a stress fracture in his right foot. After surgery to insert a pin he will be out for three to six weeks. Mason Foster is likely to start in his place, given the shaky injury status of Keenan Robinson (see below).

Questionable (50% chance player will play)

TE Derek Carrier (ankle/Achilles)—He went out early in the Giants game with what Gruden described as both a high ankle sprain and an Achilles injury. It won’t be surprising if he misses another week or two. Je’Ron Hamm will be active in his place. It’s possible that Tom Compton and Ty Nsekhe will get some snaps at tight end.

LB Keenan Robinson (shoulder)—Robinson has missed the last three games with a variety of upper body injuries. His possible absence and the loss of Riley could force the Redskins to sign an inside linebacker. Mason Foster could start in Robinson’s place even if he is active.

CB Deshazor Everett (hamstring)—He was out of the Giants game and he watched Quinton Dunbar have quite a game playing snaps that could have been his. If he is ready to go after being limited in practice all week he could be active in place of either Dunbar if he can’t play or Deshaun Phillips.

CB Quinton Dunbar (finger)—He suffered a nasty finger dislocation in the third quarter against the Giants. Gruden said that he expects him to play, saying “it’s a finger”. Assuming the trainers are confident in their ability to protect the finger he should be good to go.

WR Andre Roberts (knee)—He played against the Giants but he showed up on the injury report with an inflamed knee. Rashad Ross could be active in his place.

RB Chris Thompson—Thompson suffered a sprained AC joint during the Giants game and was limited in practice.

Probable (virtually certain will play)

S Dahson Goldson (wrist/hamstring/knee)—Goldson has been limited in practice all week to give him a break from what appear to be some nagging, mounting injuries.

Also listed as probable are S Dashon Goldson, DE Jason Hatcher (knee), DE Chris Baker (illness), C Josh LeRibeus (elbow/shoulder), CB Will Blackmon (shoulder hip), DB DeAngelo Hall (toe), NT Terrance Knighton (cluster headaches).

Redskins release Dashaun Phillips, again

Redskins release Dashaun Phillips, again

Cornerback Dashaun Phillips had a very short return to the Redskins’ active roster.

Phillips, who started the season as the nickel cornerback before being benched and eventually released and moved to the practice squad last month, was re-signed to the roster on Friday. He made the trip to Arizona but he was inactive for the game. The Redskins announced today that he has been released again.

It is possible for Phillips to return to the practice squad if he clears through waivers.

The transaction clears a roster spot for the return of offensive tackle Trent Williams, who has been suspended for the last four games.

Jamison Crowder's touchdown dance was better than his touchdown

Jamison Crowder's touchdown dance was better than his touchdown

Among all the darkness and depression that has followed after the Redskins' 31-23 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday, one bright, shining light has emerged: Jamison Crowder's touchdown celebration.

Late in the third quarter, the second-year wideout was on the receiving end of a 26-yard Kirk Cousins strike, which put his team in the lead on the game's scoreboard by three. However, it's what he did post-catch that put his team in the lead by a far larger margin on the swagboard.

Feast your eyes on this dance, and if you've already seen it, feast your eyes on it again. And again. And AGAIN:

Do you see how much Juju he put on that beat? And did you catch how he gave the ref a little somethin'-somethin' right at the end of the sequence? Calling that flawless would be an insult to Crowder.

Apparently, Jay Gruden was heard screaming at his players in the locker room as they were processing the matchup's result Sunday night. Is it possible he was just loudly complimenting Crowder's moves?
