Position Listing
Nate Orchard
News
Washington promoted Orchard to the active roster Tuesday, Kyle Stackpole of the team's official site reports.

A roster spot opened up with Matthew Ioannidis (torn biceps) on IR, so Orchard will add depth on the defensive line. Rookie first-rounder Chase Young (groin) could miss this Sunday's game against the Ravens, too. Orchard played five games in 2019 and posted 14 tackles, a sack and a pass breakup.

Jon Bostic
News
Bostic won't be suspended for his hit on Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton (concussion) during Sunday's win, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Dalton had given himself up and was sliding to the ground when Bostic lowered his shoulder and administered a violent hit on the quarterback's head, forcing him to leave the game and enter concussion protocol. Bostic was ejected for his actions, but it appears the league won't hand him any further discipline. A hefty fine could still be on the docket, but Bostic should remain in his starting middle linebacker role when Washington resumes play Week 9 against the Giants.

Daron Payne
News
Payne made five tackles -- one for a loss -- in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Giants.

Payne continues to log massive playing time, as he played 45 of 48 defensive snaps (94 percent). The 2018 first-round pick has posted at least four tackles in four consecutive games, but he hasn't taken down the quarterback since Week 1. It'll be tough to depend on him in IDP circles unless he can turn around the sack numbers.

Kevin Pierre-Louis
News
Pierre-Louis (shoulder) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Pierre-Louis was limited during Wednesday's practice, but the fact that he was upgraded so quickly is evidence that the team may have been managing his practice reps during the week. Now appearing fully healthy, the veteran will assume his usual starting role at weakside linebacker for Week 7 against the Cowboys.

Temarrick Hemingway
News
Washington signed Hemingway to the active roster from the practice squad Thursday.

This marks the third time this season that Hemingway has been promoted to the Football Team's active roster, though he hasn't yet seen game action. If Robert Foster manages to clear the league-mandated six days of pre-entry COVID-19 testing, however, Hemingway could find his roster spot in jeopardy.

David Sharpe
News
Sharpe has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants due to an illness, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

The illness reportedly isn't related to COVID-19, but the 25-year-old will be unavailable regardless for Week 6. Sharpe has seen snaps in only one game this season, so Washington's gameplan is unlikely to be impacted by his absence.

Greg Stroman
News
Stroman (foot) was placed on IR on Friday, John Keim of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

Stroman has already missed one game with this injury, and his placement on IR ensures that he will miss at least two more. The earliest the cornerback could rejoin his teammates on the field will be Nov. 8 for Washington's second meeting with the Giants.

Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Trevor Davis
News
Davis signed to Washington's practice squad Wednesday.

The 27-year-old spent training camp in Chicago and had a workout in Houston before finally latching on with Washington. Davis appeared in 14 games between the Packers, Raiders and Dolphins last season, and his primary duties figure to be in the return game if he makes his way to Washington's active roster.

David Bada
No Updates
Casey Toohill
News
Toohill was added to the Football Team's active roster Tuesday, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

The rookie out of Stanford passed through the six days of COVID-19 testing after signing with the football team Oct. 14. Toohill will take Joshua Garnett's roster spot after Garnett announced his retirement.

Kelvin Harmon
News
Harmon (knee) was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list Saturday.

Harmon sustained a torn ACL in July and will miss the 2020 season, so he'll remain on the NFI list this year. The 2019 sixth-round pick performed well in his rookie season with a 30-365-0 line, so he'll set his focus on getting back to full health for 2021. Dontrelle Inman and Antonio Gandy-Golden will battle for reps on the outside, across from Terry McLaurin.

Injury
Knee - ACL - NFI-R for Week 9 vs. N.Y. Giants
Ross Pierschbacher
News
Washington waived Pierschbacher on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 2019 fifth-round pick appeared in five games with Washington as a rookie. He could still offer modest developmental intrigue as a reserve center or guard.

Dwayne Haskins
News
Haskins (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Giants.

During pregame warmups, Haskins was seen tossing some passes, per Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record. Having said that, Washington will keep Haskins in street clothes with Kyle Allen starting and Alex Smith serving as the team's backup quarterback. Haskins was away from the team most of the last week due to a gastrointestinal illness, so his ability to throw Sunday indicates he's at least in good health.

Terry McLaurin
News
McLaurin caught seven of 11 targets for 90 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 25-3 win over the Cowboys.

McLaurin was limited mostly to short gains and did the majority of his damage on a 52-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter. The deep shot resulted in his longest gain of the season and got him into the end zone for the first time since Week 2. McLaurin is quietly on pace for over 1,300 yards for the season and will look to build off this strong effort in next Sunday's divisional matchup with the Giants.

Jimmy Moreland
News
Moreland will draw the start for Sunday's game against Philadelphia, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

With Kendall Fuller sidelined due to a lingering calf problem, Moreland will start opposite Ronald Darby for Week 1. The good news for Moreland and Washington is that Alshon Jeffery (foot) will be inactive for the contest, leaving DeSean Jackson, Greg Ward and rookie Jalen Reagor as the team's primary receiving options.

Thomas Davis
News
Davis (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

For a second straight game, Davis will serve as a healthy scratch. Kevin Pierre-Louis will continue starting at weak-side linebacker while Cole Holcomb will operate as the strong-side linebacker during Sunday's divisional tilt.

Keith Ismael
No Updates
Isaiah Wright
News
Wright (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Dallas, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

With Antonio Gandy-Golden (hamstring) also out, Washington will turn to Cam Sims or Robert Foster for the No. 3 receiver role. Terry McLaurin has been the only consistent pass catcher on the team this season, so it'll be a surprise if either of Sims or Foster gets more than a handful of targets. Wright averaged 3.3 catches for 18 yards over the past four weeks, playing at least 29 snaps in every game.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for Week 9 vs. N.Y. Giants
Wes Martin
News
Martin (chest) practiced in full Thursday.

Martin has missed three straight games due to a chest injury, but he now appears on track to retake the field versus Buffalo on Sunday.

Ryan Kerrigan
News
Kerrigan (toe) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.

Kerrigan didn't practice Wednesday while nursing a toe injury, but he now appears to have put the issue behind him. The veteran defensive end will reprise his usual rotational role in Cleveland on Sunday.

Ronald Darby
News
Darby (illness) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Darby missed Wednesday's practice session with a non-COVID-19 related illness, so the fact that he returned so quickly is a positive sign. Now that the veteran appears healthy, he'll assume his usual starting role at cornerback, tasked with slowing down the dangerous Dallas receiving corps Sunday.

Dontrelle Inman
News
Inman wasn't targeted in Sunday's 25-3 win over the Cowboys.

Inman played 20 of 69 offensive snaps (29 percent), but he still ranked third among Washington's wide receivers in snap share behind Terry McLaurin and Cam Sims. Getting jumped by Sims is noteworthy because he started the 2020 season on Washington's practice squad, but Sims didn't do much with his opportunities, either, catching just one pass for 22 yards. Washington has a bye week coming up and will return to action Week 9 against the Giants.

Deshazor Everett
News
Everett is slated to start at free safety Sunday against the Giants in place of Troy Apke, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Everett replaced Apke midway through a Week 5 loss to the Rams, and he'll retain the starting job in Week 6. The 28-year-old was a starter for the team in 2017 but has filled into a reserve role since, but Washington hopes he'll be an immediate boost to a defense that ranks 21st in points against this year.

Kaare Vedvik
News
Washington signed Vedvik to the practice squad Friday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

The spot on the practice squad opened up following the promotion of Joshua Garnett to the active roster. The punter/kicker hybrid's only career NFL action came in one game with the Jets last season, during which he failed to convert his sole field-goal attempt.

Michael Liedtke
News
Washington placed Liedtke (undisclosed) on injured reserve on Saturday.

Liedtke hasn't suited up for game-time action since appearing in 10 games for the Buccaneers in 2017-18. The nature of his current injury remains undisclosed.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Tress Way
News
Way agreed to terms on a four-year, $15 million contract extension with the Redskins on Friday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Way ranks first in the league with 49.2 average yards per punt, and he's been named to the Pro Bowl accordingly. As a result, Washington has opted to lock up the standout punter for the foreseeable future.

Fabian Moreau
News
Moreau suffered a left thigh injury during Sunday's practice, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Moreau limped off the field early in Sunday's session, but he returned with the aid of a wrap on his left thigh. This isn't expected to be a serious injury since he could return to the field, but muscle strains can be tricky, so keep an eye on the starting cornerback's status moving forward.

Brandon Scherff
News
Scherff (knee) has been removed from IR and is expected to suit up Sunday against the Giants, John Keim of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

Washington placed cornerback Greg Stroman (foot) on IR in a corresponding move. Scherff -- a Pro Bowl right guard -- should provide a much-needed boost to an offensive line that yielded eight sacks in last week's loss to the Rams.

J.D. McKissic
News
McKissic carried five times for 35 yards and caught both his targets for an additional 16 yards during Sunday's 25-3 win over the Cowboys.

McKissic was quite effective as a ball carrier, averaging 7.0 yards per carry, but he didn't make his usual impact as a pass catcher with his team playing from ahead throughout the game. He could have more passes thrown his way next Sunday against the Giants but seems unlikely to take over as the lead back anytime soon after Antonio Gibson erupted for 128 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in this one. As such, McKissic should be left on the bench in the majority of fantasy formats.

Troy Apke
News
Apke made eight tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Eagles.

Washington let up 17 points in the first half Sunday but quickly turned things around, shutting out the Eagles in the second half. Apke played every snap and finished tied with Jon Bostic for the team lead in tackles. It appears Apke is locked into a starting role, and he could yield some IDP value moving forward.

Emanuel Hall
News
Hall (Achilles) has reverted to Washington's reserve/non-football injury list, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Hall was waived by Washington with a non-football injury designation Sunday but ultimately went unclaimed. The 23-year-old suffered a torn Achillies roughly a month ago, but it remains unclear how the injury was sustained. Given the severity of the issue, he likely has his sights set on the 2021 season.

Injury
Achilles - NFI-R for Week 9 vs. N.Y. Giants
Jared Norris
News
Norris was promoted from the practice squad to Washington's active roster Friday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

The 27-year-old landed on the practice squad after failing to make the season-opening roster, but he'll be promoted ahead of the Week 4 matchup with Baltimore. Norris will provide depth at linebacker with Cole Holcomb (knee) ruled out and Kevin Pierre-Louis (illness) questionable for Sunday.

Antonio Gandy-Golden
News
Gandy-Golden (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Despite numerous injuries to Washington pass catchers, Gandy-Golden simply hasn't been involved much during his rookie season accumulating just one catch across 43 offensive snaps. It doesn't seem as if the fourth-round pick will on the injured-reserve list much more than the required three weeks, but he'll miss a number of solid fantasy matchups including games against the Cowboys, Giants and Lions during that span.

Injury
Hamstring - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 10
Nick Sundberg
News
Sundberg (lower back) played during Thursday's preseason win over the Falcons.

Sundberg served as Washington's top long snapper Thursday, playing eight snaps on special teams. Now back to full health, Sundberg projects to resume his usual role on special teams.

Jeremy Sprinkle
News
Sprinkle caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 25-3 win over the Cowboys.

Sprinkle tied his season-high with 28 offensive snaps, and he finally made his first catch of the year. Washington likely opted for more two tight-end sets because the wide receiver corps has been ravaged by injuries, and the Football Team could come back from the Week 8 bye healthier than before, which would cut into Sprinkle's workload once again.

Steven Sims
News
Washington placed Sims (toe) on injured reserve Friday.

The 23-year-old has been unable to practice since attempting to play through the toe injury Week 3. The move to IR will prevent Sims playing in any of Washington's next three games, making him ineligible to suit up again until at least Nov. 8 against the Giants. While Sims is sidelined, Dontrelle Inman (foot) should continue to work as Washington's No. 2 wideout, with Isaiah Wright the next man up.

Injury
Toe - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Jeremy Reaves
News
Washington signed Reaves to the active roster Tuesday, Kyle Stackpole of the team's official site reports.

Reaves was on the practice squad but received a promotion following news that Landon Collins (torn Achilles) is done for the year. The 24-year-old safety played 11 games for Washington over the previous two seasons, recording 15 tackles and a pass breakup. He'll operate in a reserve role on defense, as Kamren Curl is in line for a starting role at strong safety.

Jonathan Allen
News
Allen made nine tackles (seven solo) and a sack in Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Browns.

Allen tied with Jon Bostic for the team lead in tackles, and he now has 1.5 sacks this season. The 2017 first-round pick also logged a season-high 79 percent of defensive snaps, and he could maintain that snap share moving forward with Matthew Ioannidis (torn biceps) done for the season. He'll have a tough matchup in Week 4, though, as the Ravens come to town.

Morgan Moses
News
Moses (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Moses played through the hip issue in Week 3 against Cleveland, as it appears the injury could be a week-to-week issue. Now healthy, the veteran will assume his usual starting role at right tackle Sunday.

Kendall Fuller
News
Fuller played every snap on defense in Weeks 3 and 4, notching two tackles and two interceptions.

Calf and knee injuries cost Fuller the first two games of the season, but he hasn't shown any limitations since joining the lineup. While known for his versatility in Kansas City, the 25-year-old has largely stuck to perimeter coverage in his second stint with Washington, logging 102 of his 120 snaps as an outside cornerback, per PFF.

Thaddeus Moss
News
Washington waived/injured Moss (undisclosed) on Friday.

Julie Donaldson of Washington's official site reported that this is a procedural move, and if Moss clears waivers, he'll land on Washington's injured reserve. The undrafted rookie out of LSU struggled through the early part of training camp, and his prior foot injury could be a contributing factor.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Wes Schweitzer
News
Schweitzer (elbow) is active for Sunday's game versus the Rams.

Schweitzer is good to go and expected to start at right guard. He'll have a tough assignment against All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald.

Geron Christian
News
Christian (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

With Christian sitting out, Cornelius Lucas is slated to start at left tackle. Christian will aim to return following the team's Week 8 bye, as the Giants come to town Week 9.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 9 vs. N.Y. Giants
Robert Foster
News
Foster (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Though Washington poached Foster from Green Bay's practice squad a few days ago, the wideout won't be available to play while he waits to clear COVID-19 intake testing with his new organization. As a result, the Football Team will turn to Jeff Badet and Tony Brown as its depth options at receiver Week 7 behind the projected starting trio of Terry McLaurin, Dontrelle Inman and Cam Sims.

Cornelius Lucas
News
Lucas signed a two-year, $5.3 million contract with the Redskins on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Lucas started eight games for the Bears in 2019, and he now stands to bolster Washington's depth along the offensive line. He's handled snaps at both left and right tackle in his career.

Marcus Baugh
News
Washington signed Baugh to the practice squad Saturday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

The Football Team cut Baugh on Thursday, but the 25-year-old tight end will stick with the team as a member of the scout team. Moving forward, Logan Thomas, Jeremy Sprinkle and Temarrick Hemingway will handle the tight-end reps with the active roster.

Cole Luke
News
Luke signed a contract with the Panthers on Friday, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

Luke spent time with the Panthers during the offseason, and he now rejoins the team with a shot to contribute on special teams. Carolina waived Bryan Cox to make room for Luke on the active roster.

Cole Holcomb
News
Holcomb (knee) isn't on Washington's injury report to start the week, Nicki Jhablava of The Washington Post reports.

Holcomb has missed the past four games with a knee injury, but he's practicing fully to start the week, putting the 2019 fifth-rounder on pace to suit up Sunday against the Giants. He's projected to work in a reserve linebacker role.

Peyton Barber
News
Barber rushed 10 times for 34 yards in Sunday's 25-3 win over the Cowboys.

Barber couldn't get much going on the ground Sunday, but he managed to rush for three first downs. He took a clear backseat to Antonio Gibson, who enjoyed a breakout performance with 20 carries for 128 yards (6.4 YPC) and a touchdown while recording three red-zone rushes to Barber's zero. If Barber loses his red-zone opportunities, he essentially loses all fantasy value because he's averaging 2.1 yards per carry and has caught just one pass this season.

James Smith-Williams
News
Smith-Williams (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Dallas, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Smith-Williams will need to clear the concussion protocol before he can return to game action, and he'll have an extra week to do so with Washington on bye in Week 8 before a Week 9 clash with the NFC East rival Giants.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for Week 9 vs. N.Y. Giants
Khaleke Hudson
News
The Redskins selected Hudson in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 162nd overall.

Hudson had impressive production early in his career at Michigan but his pro projection is murky. He's 5-foot-11 and 224 pounds with short arms (29.38 inches) and a 72.63-inch wingspan. Hudson made up for that with athleticism, including a 4.56 in the 40-yard dash. His best season came in 2017, when he had 18.5 tackles for loss and 8.0 sacks. Hudson is a tweener between safety and outside linebacker, so Washington will have to get creative with his usage. Ron Rivera has experience in making the most out of tweeners, though, so this could work.

Montez Sweat
News
Sweat is being evaluated for a concussion after exiting Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Sweat had been a difference-maker prior to his fourth-quarter exit, collecting three QB hits, two sacks and a forced fumble on Dallas quarterback Ben DiNucci. With Washington looking to close out a convincing home win over the Cowboys, Ryan Anderson would see an uptick in usage at defensive end if Sweat were unable to return.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for Week 9 vs. N.Y. Giants
Antonio Gibson
News
Gibson carried 20 times for 128 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 25-3 win over the Cowboys.

Gibson gashed the struggling Dallas defense for 6.4 yards per carry while scoring a 12-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He failed to haul in his only target in the passing game but that was mostly due to the fact that his team played from ahead for most of the game and was content to keep the ball on the ground for the most part. Gibson could receive a similar workload in what should be a competitive game against the Giants next Sunday and will look to add to his current string of four touchdowns in the last six games.

Landon Collins
News
Washington placed Collins (Achilles) on injured reserve Tuesday.

This move was just a matter of time, as Collins underwent season-ending surgery to repair his torn left Achilles on Monday. This is a significant loss for a Washington defense that has been a bright spot of an otherwise turbulent season. Collins was on pace for a third consecutive season with 100-plus tackles, and he added two sacks, a pass breakup and an interception through the first seven games. He's in the second season of a six-year, $84 million contract, and it would cost Washington $13.8 million in dead cap space if the Football Team released him this offseason. Kamren Curl is expected to start at strong safety moving forward.

Injury
Achilles - Injured Reserve
Shaun Dion Hamilton
News
Hamilton notched 49 tackles (37 solo), one sack, two defended passes and one interception across 16 contests in 2019.

Hamilton also forced and recovered one fumble, and he contributed on special teams for Washington. The 24-year-old stands to reprise a depth role in the team's linebacker corps for 2020.

Logan Thomas
News
Thomas caught all four of his targets for 60 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 25-3 win over the Cowboys.

Thomas finished second on the team in most major receiving categories and scored an impressive 15-yard touchdown in the second quarter. This was Thomas' second straight game with a touchdown while he set a new season high in yardage and tied his best output of four receptions. He should be a key cog in the offense again next Sunday against the Giants as he looks to build on this strong effort.

Reuben Foster
News
Foster (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Washington hasn't listed the exact reason for the IR designation, but all indications seem to be because of the torn ACL and LCL that the linebacker suffered last May. As a result, Foster will not be eligible to play until the 2021 campaign.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Kamren Curl
News
Curl will start at strong safety following news that Landon Collins (torn Achilles) is done for the season, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

The Football Team selected Curl in the seventh round of April's draft after the 21-year-old spent three years as a starter for Arkansas. Curl immediately secured a role in Washington's defense, logging more than 30 percent of the defensive workload in five of seven games and recording 17 tackles (12 solo). Now, he's set to bump into a starting role that could pay major dividends for fantasy managers in IDP settings. Collins was on pace for a third straight 100-tackle season, and while Curl isn't of the same caliber, he could produce similar numbers at the position. He's worth a flier in deeper leagues, although Washington will be on bye Week 8.

Cam Sims
News
Sims caught his lone target for 22 yards in Sunday's 25-3 win over the Cowboys.

Antonio Gandy-Golden (hamstring) went to IR after a Week 6 loss to the Giants and Isaiah Wright (shoulder) was ruled out for Sunday's game, so Sims started and played 88 percent of the offensive snaps. It didn't turn into much production, but he out-snapped both Dontrelle Inman by 38 snaps and Terry McLaurin by three snaps. That level of usage is bound to regress eventually, and with a Week 8 bye on tap, it's possible this was just a one-week surge.

Chase Young
News
Young finished with six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 25-3 victory over Dallas.

Young ended the contest tied for the team lead with six tackles, the best performance of his young career. The defensive end was on the field for 82 percent of Washington's defensive snaps.

Matthew Ioannidis
News
Ioannidis announced via his personal Twitter account Friday that he has undergone surgery to repair his torn biceps.

Ioannidis will miss the remainder of the 2020 season due to his injury, and Washington has already placed him on IR. In Ioannidis' absence, Tim Settle stands to handle an increased rotational role behind Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne.

Injury
Biceps - Injured Reserve
Aaron Colvin
News
Colvin was released by Washington on Saturday.

Colvin was an occasional healthy scratch with Washington last year, so it's not surprising that he was cut after the team added Kendall Fuller (undisclosed) and Ronald Darby this offseason. The 28-year-old Colvin worked in a steady role with Washington when he was active, though, averaging 31 defensive snaps per game. He'll seek a depth role elsewhere.

Chase Roullier
News
Roullier (knee) is active for Sunday's game versus the Rams.

Roullier will suit up and start at center, and he'll be tasked with slowing down Aaron Donald.

David Steinmetz
News
Steinmetz signed with Washington on Friday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Steinmetz was just waived by the Texans last week. He will now get another chance in Washington, but he will likely need to make an impression in order to have any chance at landing on their final roster. He suffered a broken ankle during training camp last season and is looking to bounce back.

Devaroe Lawrence
News
The Browns waived Lawrence on Tuesday.

Lawrence notched his highest snap share (44 percent) of the season in place of Larry Ogunjobi (suspension) during Week 12's win over the Dolphins, and he managed one solo tackle. Ogunjobi will return to start beside Sheldon Richardson this Sunday against the Steelers, so the Browns appear comfortable with Brandin Bryan and Eli Ankou as their reserve options at defensive tackle.

Saahdiq Charles
News
Washington placed Charles (kneecap) on injured reserve Saturday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Charles suffered a dislocated kneecap on his first career NFL snap last week, and he'll be shut down three weeks as a result. Wes Martin is expected to take over at left guard for the time being. Charles is eligible to return Week 10 against the Lions.

Injury
Kneecap - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 10
Kyle Allen
News
Allen completed 15 of 25 pass attempts for 194 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 25-3 win over the Cowboys.

Allen managed a season-best 7.8 yards per attempt while completing a 52-yard touchdown pass to Terry McLaurin and adding a 15-yard strike to Logan Thomas in the second quarter. He wasn't especially productive the rest of the way but didn't need to do much as the Dallas offense struggled both before and after Andy Dalton (concussion) left the game. Allen now has a 4:1 TD:INT to go along with 474 passing yards over the last two games and will look to continue his respectably play next Sunday in another divisional matchup against the Giants.

Jeff Badet
News
Badet reverted to Washington's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

The 26-year-old wideout from Oklahoma made his NFL debut against the Cowboys on Sunday, fielding three offensive snaps but having no targets thrown his way on an extremely limited workload. Steven Sims (toe) and Antonio Gandy-Golden (hamstring) are both residing on IR at the moment, but Washington still has six receivers on its active roster, making Badet expendable for the time being.

Jordan Kunaszyk
No Updates
Tim Settle
News
Settle (hamstring) put in a full practice Thursday.

Settle was credited with a limited practice Wednesday followed by a full one the day after. He'll provide depth on Washington's defensive line in Sunday's matchup with the Lions.

Dustin Hopkins
News
Hopkins made one of two field goals and both extra-point attempts in Sunday's 25-3 win over the Cowboys.

Hopkins has connected on just eight of 12 field goals and 11 of 12 extra points this season. His misfire during Sunday's win wasn't as damaging because Washington had a substantial lead at that point, but it's simply another knock on Hopkins, whose job security was up for debate already. With a Week 8 bye on tap, it wouldn't be surprising if Washington tried out another kicker, but if Hopkins holds onto the starting job, the Week 9 matchup against the Giants should be favorable for fantasy purposes.

Steven Montez
News
Washington signed Montez to the practice squad Sunday, Kyle Stackpole of the team's official site reports.

Montez was let go as a product of final roster cuts Saturday, but the undrafted rookie will get a chance to continue his development with Washington. He's an unlikely candidate to see any action this season, however, with all of Dwayne Haskins, Kyle Allen and Alex Smith (leg) on the active roster.

Danny Johnson
News
Johnson (hand) was put on injured reserve Tuesday, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan Washington reports.

Johnson was able to appear in just two games all season. He finishes the year with 11 tackles and one pass breakup.

Alex Smith
News
Smith took over for Kyle Allen (arm) at the two-minute warning in the first half and completed nine of 17 passes for 37 yards in the Washington Football Team's 30-10 loss to the Rams on Sunday. He also rushed once for one yard.

The veteran quarterback saw his first action since Nov. 18, 2018 after overcoming a gruesome leg injury that nearly ended his career, with his presence on the field one of the few bright spots in the double-digit loss for the Football Team. Smith had been elevated to the No. 2 role behind Allen for the contest, and he was unexpectedly thrust into action after the latter took a serious sideline hit from the Rams' Jalen Ramsey just before halftime. While it was a nice story for Smith to get back on the field, he enjoyed limited success statistically and took six sacks. Coach Ron Rivera announced after the game that Allen would be the starting quarterback Week 6 against the Giants if healthy enough to suit up, but Smith should remain locked in ahead of Haskins as the team's top backup.

Tony Brown
News
Brown inked a contract with Washington on Saturday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Brown has resided on the practice squad for the entire 2020 season after he failed to make the opening day roster for Washington this offseason. Expect Brown to provide depth for the Football Team on Sunday, as Isaiah Wright (shoulder) was ruled out for the contest against the Cowboys.

Bryce Love
News
Love was placed on injured reserve Friday with a knee injury, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

The 23-year-old has been experiencing swelling in his knee over the past few days, so Washington will shut him down for a bit to allow a full recovery. Love must spend the next three weeks on the shelf before being eligible to rejoin the active roster. He was a healthy scratch for the first three games of the year, so the offense is unlikely to be impacted by his absence.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Ryan Anderson
News
Anderson (ankle) is active for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Giants.

Anderson has been limited at practice the past few weeks with the ankle issue, so this news isn't a surprise. Now appearing healthy, look for the Alabama product to assume his usual rotational depth role across the defensive line.
