Washington S Montae Nicholson (ankle) is out for tonight's game against the Vikings. CB Josh Norman (thigh, hand) is active, though, after also arriving questionable. Norman's not a strong IDP option and doesn't significantly change the matchup for Vikings WRs Stefon Diggs or Olabisi Johnson.
Washington S Montae Nicholson (ankle) and CB Josh Norman (thigh, hand) are questionable for Thursday night's game against the Vikings. Each guy missed every practice of the week. CB Fabian Moreau saw full playing time with Norman out last week, while Jimmy Moreland played 55% as the 3rd corner. Troy Apke played a season-high 55% of the snaps, with Nicholson leaving early, and should play in Nicholson's place if the starter sits against Minnesota.
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.
