Redskins vs. Panthers full injury report: T. Robinson out, K. Robinson questionable

Redskins vs. Panthers full injury report: T. Robinson out, K. Robinson questionable

Injury report for Redskins vs. Panthers

Out

S Trenton Robinson—It appears that Robinson has been relegated to special teams duty. He didn’t play a snap on defense after starting at safety most of the season but he still contributes on special teams. He pulled a hamstring in the fourth quarter against the Saints and he did not practice on Thursday or Friday.

Questionable (50% chance player will play)

LB Keenan Robinson (shoulder)—If this was the NHL his injury would be described as “upper body” and in this case the meaning would be literal. In the last two weeks he has been limited in practice all week with injuries to his abdomen, ribs, shoulder, and neck. If he can’t go on Sunday, Will Compton will start in his place.

NT Terrance Knighton (migraine)—He has been free of symptoms of cluster headaches since missing the Patriots game but he did miss a practice this week to go visit a specialist. Barring a setback he should be good to go.

Probable (virtually certain will play)

CB DeAngelo Hall (toe)—Hall was limited in practice all but he was the same last week and played a little over a dozen snaps against the Saints, most of them at safety. His toe, injured in Week 3, is still hampering him to an extent but he is likely to go despite being limited.

CB Chris Culliver (knee)—His knee problems seem to be behind him, although he was limited in practice this week. Against the Saints he played 51 of the 58 snaps so he is good to go.

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 played over 90 percent of the snaps against New England and probably could have against the Saints but he took off much of the fourth quarter with the score lopsided in the Redskins’ favor.

DE Jason Hatcher (Knee)—I detailed his program in a separate article last week. It seems certain he will play but his snaps could be limited.

Also listed as probable and full in practice all week are DE Chris Baker (ankle/rib), CB Bashaud Breeland (hamstring), S Dahson Goldson (wrist/hamstring), C Josh LeRibeus (elbow/shoulder), G Spencer Long (hip), RB Alfred Morris (rib), WR Andre Roberts (ankle), and G Brandon Scherff (thigh).

2017 Redskins depth chart preview: Quarterback

2017 Redskins depth chart preview: Quarterback

The Redskins are part of the way through the process of retooling their 2017 roster. While the major part of free agency is over, they still can add a few veterans all the way through training camp. They have 10 picks in the draft that starts on Thursday. In this series, we’re going to take a look at what has changed on the Redskins roster since the season ended and what they need to add to remain competitive in the revived NFC East.

This series started on defense and you can see all those posts here. On offense we’ve put the wide receivers, running backs, offensive line, and tight ends, under the microscope. Today the focus turns to quarterback.

2016 final game starter: Kirk Cousins

Has started all 32 games in two seasons since he was named the starter. Cousins played every offensive snap last year.

Departures: None

Projected 2017 starter: Cousins

Trade talk that was all over the place in February and early March is all but gone. It appears that Cousins will be the starter for 2017. Beyond that it’s anyone’s guess.

2017 reserves: Colt McCoy, Nate Sudfeld

For a while in 2014, McCoy was ahead of Cousins on Jay Gruden’s depth chart, starting three games over a healthy Cousins. McCoy is under contract through 2018 and it will be interesting to see if he gets another shot at starting if Cousins leaves as a free agent. But for 2017 McCoy will continue his role as an insurance policy.

Sudfeld will find out a lot more about his future in burgundy and gold in the next several days. Former general manager Scot McCloughan was very high on Sudfeld’s potential as a future starter. If others in the building were as convinced as McCloughan was they likely will bypass the position in the draft. Taking a QB, especially somewhere in rounds three or four, would be a sign that they don’t like Sudfeld nearly as much as McCloughan did.

Where can the quarterback position find improvement?

Cousins had another big statistical year, breaking his own team record by passing for nearly 5,000 yards. But he can improve in the red zone, where his completion rate plummeted to 47.5 percent after completing 64.1 percent in 2015. Cousins also saw his third-down completion percentage drop from 69.2 percent in 2015 to 61 percent last year. Not surprisingly, the offense struggled in both areas.   

Locks and bubble players

If no quarterback is drafted all three are locks. If one is taken, Sudfeld should start looking at how he can break his lease.
