Injury report for Redskins vs. Giants
(Scroll down for updates to Giants injury report)
CB Chris Culliver (knee)—He was banged up some before suffering a season-ending injury to his right knee in practice on Thursday. Culliver was still dealing with an inflamed left knee that forced him to sit out three games earlier this season and he had an MRI to check out a shoulder injury earlier this week. Both the ACL and MCL in the right knee were torn when he went up for a pass during practice. It will be a long, hard road to recovery and it will not be surprising if that rehab extends through OTAs and minicamp next year.
S Trenton Robinson (hamstring)—He has missed practice all week and will miss his second consecutive game with the hamstring.
Questionable (50% chance player will play)
LB Keenan Robinson (shoulder)—Robinson has missed the last two games with a variety of upper body injuries. His absence has left the Redskins thin at inside linebacker. Will Compton will start in his place if he can’t go.
CB Deshazor Everett (hamstring)—The reserve corner’s importance grew with the season-ending injury to Chris Culliver yesterday. He did not practice on Wednesday but has been able to go on a limited basis the last two days. If he needs to be inactive, Quinton Dunbar will dress for the game.
CB Bashaud Breeland (illness)—He was listed on the injury report this week with a hamstring injury but he was a full go in practice on Wednesday and Thursday. Breeland missed practice on Friday with what Gruden said was a bit of a fever. It look like he will play on Sunday; if he doesn’t it would create some problems with Culliver out.
Probable (virtually certain will play)
NT Terrance Knighton (migraine)—He has been free of symptoms of cluster headaches since missing the Patriots game but he did miss a practice last week to go visit a specialist. Barring a setback he should be good to go.
CB DeAngelo Hall (toe)—Hall was full in practice all week and his injured toe seems to be coming around. He has only played 23 snaps on two games since returning but with Culliver out he needs to be ready for more extended action.
RB Alfred Morris (rib)—Morris played only three snaps against the Panthers before exiting when he aggravated a rib injury he suffered against the Saints. He bounced back, however, with full participation in practice all week. He should be able to handle a full load but we thought that last week, too.
LB Ryan Kerrigan (hand)—His right hand is still healing from a broken bone he suffered during the Redskins’ Week 7 game against the Bucs. He had the bye week to heal up and has had very close to his normal work load in the last three games.
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 and full in practice all week are DE Chris Baker (ankle/rib), C Josh LeRibeus (elbow/shoulder), WR Andre Roberts (ankle), S Jeron Johnson (illness) and G Brandon Scherff (thigh).
OG Justin Pugh (concussion)—The Giants’ starting left guard was out of the Patriots game with a concussion and he still has not been cleared to practice. John Jerry will start in his place.
TE Larry Donnell (neck)—He has done some damage against the Redskins but he has a neck injury and has not practiced all week. Will Tye will start in his place.
LB Mark Herzlich (quad)—Herzlich plays sparingly on defense and contributes on special teams. Update Sat. 11.28 2:10 p.m.: Herzlich has been upgraded to questionable
C Weston Richburg (ankle)—Richburg has been dealing with an ankle injury and he was limited in practice on Wednesday and out on Thursday. If he can’t go then Dallas Reynolds will take his place as the starting center. Update Sat. 11.28 2:10 p.m.: Richburg has been downgraded to out; he and Pugh did not make the trip to Washington.
