Washington CB Josh Norman left Sunday's game with a concussion. He'll need to pass through the league protocol now before returning to action.

Washington CB Bashaud Breeland is active for today's game against the Eagles. He had missed the past 2 games after suffering an ankle sprain early in Week 3 but is OK to return to IDP lineups.

Washington CB Bashaud Breeland is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles after missing the past 2 weeks with a sprained ankle. But he put in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday and then a full workout Friday. He also said he's confident he'll play Sunday, according to multiple reports. Breeland was delivering top-5 fantasy DB numbers before he got hurt.

Windy conditions are expected for today's Redskins-Ravens game. The forecast calls for winds of 20-25 mph with gusts up to 35-40 mph. That's certainly enough to impact the passing games, particularly deep threats like DeSean Jackson and Mike Wallace. We've nudged both those guys down the Week 5 rankings. Ks Dustin Hopkins and Justin Tucker might also be hindered.

Washington on Wednesday signed S Donte Whitner and placed S David Bruton on IR with a concussion. We haven't heard about Bruton suffering from particularly serious symptoms, so the IR placement might have as much to do with his weak play in coverage to date. The team also added S Josh Evans, while rookie S/LB Su'a Cravens is also making his way through the concussion protocol.

Washington CB Bashaud Breeland has a "moderate" high ankle sprain, HC Jay Gruden told the Washington Post. Breeland will reportedly be evaluated on a week-to-week basis, which almost certainly means that he won't play Sunday against the Browns. Replacement Dashaun Phillips also suffered a hamstring injury in the game, so Washington could be down to starting rookie Kendall Fuller across from CB Josh Norman. Cleveland would figure to target the rookie plenty if that winds up being the case. We'll keep an eye on the situation this week.

Update: Breeland has officially been ruled out.

Washington S DeAngelo Hall suffered a torn right ACL in Sunday's win over the Giants. That will end his season -- and quite possibly the career of the DB, who will turn 33 in November. Fantasy owners should hope that this development turns into more playing time for safety/LB hybrid Su'a Cravens, though he doesn't quite fit the FS void that Hall leaves behind. Washington is also awaiting further word on CB Bashaud Breeland's status after he suffered an ankle injury Sunday.

Washington CB Bashaud Breeland left on a cart in the 1st half against the Giants after injuring his left ankle. We'll keep an eye out for further details. Breeland entered Week 3 as a top-5 fantasy DB. S DeAngelo Hall also left the game with a hamstring injury.

Washington OLB Junior Galette tore his right Achilles' tendon and is expected to miss the season, the Washington Times reports. Galette missed all of last season after tearing his left Achilles' tendon in August but re-signed in March and had apparently been progressing well. Washington could use the pass rush help, but the defense should have Ryan Kerrigan and 2nd-year man Preston Smith set to start on the edges for 2016. Losing Galette doesn't alter the outlook for a defense that already sits well outside of starter territory for fantasy football drafts.

Washington has announced that 2nd-round pick Su'a Cravens will play safety, according to the team site. Cravens played safety primarily in college, but many had assumed that he would move to more of a LB role in the NFL, perhaps something similar to Arizona's Deone Bucannon. He'll battle DeAngelo Hall, David Bruton and Duke Ihenacho for starting duty in 2016.

Washington grabbed former USC S/OLB Su'a Cravens in Round 2 of the NFL Draft. Cravens played safety in college but tallied 10.5 sacks and 32 total tackles for loss over the past 2 years. Most expect him to play LB in the pros, and Cravens should push for an immediate starting role in a D that started Keenan Robinson, Perry Riley, Will Compton and Mason Foster while dealing with injuries last season. Robinson left for the Giants in free agency. Cravens will challenge for a top 5 spot among rookie LBs in dynasty drafting.

Washington has reached a deal with former Panthers CB Josh Norman. According to NFL Network's Albert Breer, it's a 5-year pact worth $75 million total, with $36.5 million fully guaranteed. The $15 million annual average will make Norman the league's highest-paid CB, while the guaranteed money falls about $2.5 million short of Darrelle Revis' most recent Jets contract. Assuming Norman continues to perform anywhere near his 2015 level, he'll go on hurting his own IDP value by not allowing enough completions to drive his tackle numbers. Norman's arrival should, however, help the IDP value of already useful CB Bashaud Breeland. He might also help buy a bit more time for a struggling Washington pass rush.

Washington S Dashon Goldson (shoulder, rib) is active for today's game against the Packers, despite entering the weekend questionable. ILB Perry Riley (foot) is inactive, however, leaving more snaps for LBs Will Compton and Mason Foster, with Keenan Robinson rotating in.

Washington has ruled S Dashon Goldson (rib, shoulder) out for Sunday's game in Dallas. We had already left the starter out of our Week 17 IDP rankings, anticipating at least a reduced role in a game that means nothing for Washington.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said Wednesday that "it’s important for us to be healthy come playoff time" and hinted at resting starters in Sunday's season finale against the Cowboys.  “Number one, it’s the health of our football team with these injured guys who are legitimately injured and can’t play," he said. "Then, from there, we’ll have to figure out the able bodies that we have — personnel groupings will be adjusted — and then throughout the course of the game, we’ll make adjustments depending on the situation.”  We're not expecting WR DeSean Jackson or TE Jordan Reed to play much, if at all, this weekend.  QB Kirk Cousins, RBs Alfred Morris and Matt Jones and WR Pierre Garcon also seem unlikely to play the full game.  Try to avoid Washington players in Week 17 fantasy lineups.
