Washington Redskins Injury Updates

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 Josh Norman is active for today's game against the Lions. He's not an injury risk, but there had been reports Washington planned to leave Norman inactive after sitting him late in last week's loss to the Jets. It's tough to know exactly what role Norman will play, but his active status points to him remaining in the starting lineup.

Washington has ruled S Montae Nicholson out for Sunday's game at Buffalo with the ankle injury that also cost him the previous week. Troy Apke will start in his place for the 2nd straight game.

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 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 DL Matt Ioannidis is questionable for Sunday's finale against the Eagles. This time it's a hamstring injury, rather than the shin issue that had landed him on the injury report for multiple weeks. Ioannidis missed practice all week, though, and has fallen off since the shin injury arose. He shouldn't be in your Week 17 IDP plans.

Washington DL Matt Ioannidis (shin) is active for today's game against the Titans. He's still a low-level IDP -- especially given that the injury continued to limit his practice availability this week -- but does carry some upside.

The Giants have ruled WR Odell Beckham out for Sunday’s game at Washington. Beckham shows up on the Friday injury report as a limited participant after sustaining a quad bruise. The team today determined that he won’t be able to play. That obviously raises the target ceilings for WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram, while also lowering the fantasy floor for QB Eli Manning. Fortunately, he didn’t look attractive for lineups anyway. The loss of 1 of the Giants’ 2 best players also raises the floor for the Washington defense, which is a decent streaming option.

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.

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 DL Matt Ioannidis is questionable for Monday night's game against the Eagles because of a shin injury. He took part in practice the past 2 days and seems likely to play, but keep the risk in mind if you're deciding between linemen for your IDP lineup today.

Washington CB Quinton Dunbar is inactive for the 2nd straight game because of a shin injury. We'll see about his status for Week 9.

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.

Washington ILB Zach Brown is active for today's game against the Packers. He's a weaker-than-usual IDP option, however. Brown played just 65% of the snaps in Week 1 and then 84% in Week 2, despite entering each game without landing on the injury report. His questionable tag for Week 3 certainly doesn't indicate that he's past the oblique injury today.

Washington LB Zach Brown is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers. He put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. Brown played less than 100% of the snaps each of the 1st 2 weeks despite not appearing on the injury report either time. So he'll be tough to trust in IDP lineups for Week 3 even if active.

Washington ILBs Zach Brown (hamstring, Achilles') and Martrell Spaight (ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Each played through questionable tags last week and appear likely to play. The hamstring makes 3 injuries Brown has dealt with in recent weeks, along with the Achilles' issue and a shoulder problem that appeared on the injury report last week. But he said this week he expects to play. The piling injuries might affect his production at some point, but it's not time to sit him in IDP leagues yet.

Washington ILBs Martrell Spaight (ankle) and Zach Brown (shoulder) are questionable for Thursday night's game at Dallas. Spaight missed last week's game but was listed as a limited participant every day this week. Brown has played through questionable tags for several weeks at his full snap count. He added a shoulder issue to the Achilles' injury this week but participated in every practice. Elsewhere on the defense, DE Terrell McClain will miss his 2nd straight game with a toe injury.

Washington CB Josh Norman (rib, lung) is active for today's game against the Cowboys, marking his return after 2 games out. Fellow CB Bashaud Breeland (knee), however, is inactive. OLB Preston Smith is active after entering the day questionable with a groin injury.
