Washington CB Quinton Dunbar (hamstring) and FS Montae Nicholson (ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Dunbar missed practice all week with his injury and looks like a poor bet for IDP use even if he plays. Nicholson sustained his injury Friday. We'll see about both players Sunday morning. CB Fabian Moreau (hamstring) is also questionable after limited practices all week. That means 2 of Washington's current top 3 at the position will be at least banged up for the game -- if not out. CB Josh Norman -- recently booted from the starting lineup -- is also questionable with an illness.
Washington CB Quinton Dunbar graduated to a full practice Thursday and seems on track to return Sunday against the Giants. Dunbar missed the past 2 games with a knee injury but returned to the field for the 1st time Wednesday (limited). As long as he's active, Dunbar will make for a nice Week 4 IDP option. We've added him to the DB rankings.
Washington on Tuesday placed CB Quinton Dunbar on IR with the shin injury that has dogged him since Week 6. The nerve issue messed with Dunbar's participation during the week and gameday availability since. He reappeared for playing time in Week 9 and Week 12 but never took the field for consecutive games after the initial injury. When healthy, Dunbar did play well in his 1st shot at starting. If he can get the shin issue healed up ahead of next season, Dunbar could enter 2019 as an IDP sleeper.
Washington CB Quinton Dunbar left Friday's practice early with a shin contusion and is questionable for Sunday's game against Dallas. ESPN's John Keim said HC Jay Gruden sounded "somewhat optimistic" about Dunbar's chances of playing. The 4:25 p.m. ET makes it tougher to wait on Dunbar for your IDP lineup, though, especially for an unspectacular scoring matchup with the Cowboys. We'll update his status Sunday afternoon for anyone who is waiting, though.
