Redskins injury report: Jordan Reed out of practice, six are limited

There were a lot of wounded Redskins on the practice field on Wednesday as the team started preparations for their game against the Raiders on Sunday.

One injured player was not on the field. Jordan Reed was out with a chest injury. Obviously, there is concern but Jay Gruden said that it is too early to rule him out of the game.

A half dozen players were limited including RB Rob Kelley (rib), S Montae Nicholson (shoulder), CB Josh Norman (shoulder), OT Morgan Moses (ankle), S Deshazor Everett (knee), and LB Mason Foster (shoulder).

While none of the injuries seems particularly serious, they still could affect each player’s status for the game.

Foster suffered a separated shoulder during the game, popped it back in, and continued without missing a snap. He said that said that he was letting the athletic trainers handle it. “I’m going in, getting my treatment, doing what they tell me to do,” he said.

Kelley suffered a rib cartilage injury in the second quarter on Sunday. He said that the pain was very high that day but that it has subsided since. The starting running back said that

Terrelle Pryor issues polite but firm request to Rams safety to avoid hitting knees

Terrelle Pryor issues polite but firm request to Rams safety to avoid hitting knees

Football players prefer to regulate their sport without fines and penalties, and in 2017, social media can be a platform for any and all declarations.

After Terrelle Pryor took a direct hit to his right knee in the Redskins win over the Rams, the receiver reached out to L.A. safety Cody Davis via Twitter with a polite, but firm, message.

Standing 6'6", Pryor is one of the tallest receivers in the league. It makes sense he doesn't like getting hit in the knees, as any skilly player doesn't, but particularly with the increased height that could mean more safeties are coming in low on him.

Through two games Pryor has eight catches for 97 yards. The season hasn't started particularly strong for Pryor, though the 6-foot-5, 240 lb. wideout remains confident that his production will increase. 

Redskins coach Jay Gruden did not go as far as Pryor, but does believe his team's pass game is "very close" to firing on all cylinders. QB Kirk Cousins threw for nearly 5,000 yards last season, but through two games this year, his statistics have been subpar. 

To beat the undefeated Raiders, the Redskins will need a dominant performance from Pryor. He sounds like he's up for the job.
