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 (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Cowboys. Washington will also miss slot CB Fabian Moreau, leaving just one-third of the team's starting CB trio available vs. a Dallas pass offense that exploded in Week 1.

Washington CB Quinton Dunbar is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys and trending in the wrong direction. Dunbar is dealing with knee soreness, according to the Washington Post. HC Jay Gruden said Thursday it was "nothing major" after Dunbar went from limited Wednesday to not practicing Thursday. He also said, however, that Friday would be "a big day" for Dunbar and other injured players. Dunbar sat out again Friday. Plan on not having him available for your Week 2 IDP lineup. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

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 is questionable once again for Monday night's visit to Philadelphia. He continues to deal with the nerve issue in his right shin, which allowed him to play on Thanksgiving. But Dunbar missed practice all this week. The team website reports that the team is "hopeful that with enough rest he might be able to go." HC Jay Gruden was similarly non-committal: "Yeah, I don’t know. This is a unique deal. When you're talking about the nerve and you're talking about that area for a guy who utilizes his speed, it's tough. It's only something that Quinton can help us along with. It's all about what he feels comfortable with. Last week, he felt comfortable enough to play, but you could see he was struggling with it as the game went on.” The Monday night kick makes Dunbar not worth waiting for unless you're looking well down the list for a starting DB. We've knocked him down our Week 13 DB rankings.

Washington CB Quinton Dunbar is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. He's still dealing with the nerve issue in his right shin that has already cost him 3 games and limited his playing time when he tried to return for Week 9. Dunbar posted big numbers in that contest but stayed on the field for just 40% of the snaps. He's not likely to repeat that performance. You're best off leaving Dunbar out until he's all the way back. He didn't practice at all this week.
