Washington has fired HC Jay Gruden, according to multiple reports. His team has started 0-5 with an unsettled QB situation, following 2 straight 7-9 campaigns. Washington has hired assistant HC/OL coach Bill Callahan as the interim HC. Callahan spent 2 years as the Oakland head man in 2002-03 and has been around the league in various capacities. It's tough to imagine how he might change the fortunes of Washington's (few) fantasy-relevant players. We'll be curious to see whether Callahan handles the QB spot any differently than Gruden, who was reluctant to thrust rookie Dwayne Haskins into the lineup. Colt McCoy went 18 of 27 passing for just 119 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT while taking 6 sacks in Sunday's loss to New England, his 1st start in place of Case Keenum.
Washington CB Quinton Dunbar is inactive for tonight's game against the Bears. He's dealing with a knee injury that also cost him Week 2 and kept him out of practice all week. DE Jonathan Allen is active, though, after missing Week 2 with a knee sprain.
Washington CB Quinton Dunbar (knee) and DE Jonathan Allen (knee) are questionable for Monday night's game against the Bears. Dunbar remained out of practice this week after sitting out last Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. Allen missed Week 2 after leaving the opener early with his knee sprain. He returned to limited practice Thursday and says he expects to play against Chicago. We'd wait to get him back into IDP lineups in most cases, though.
Washington ILB Zach Brown (illness) and DL Matt Ioannidis (shin) are active for today's game against the Giants. Brown should be fine for normal IDP usage. Ioannidis looks risky after missing practice all week. The matchup does present upside, though, if he makes the most sense among your options.
Washington LB Zach Brown is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. He popped up on the injury report after missing Thursday's practice with an illness but returned to full participation Friday. We'd bet on Brown playing. DL Matt Ioannidis is also questionable with a shin injury. He missed practice all week after sitting out last week's game. Ioannidis looks like a poor IDP bet even if he turns up active Sunday.
