Date: Team: Pos:

Redskins placed Terrelle Pryor (ankle), Chris Thompson (leg), and C Spencer Long (quad) on injured reserve.

Pryor underwent ankle surgery on Monday which will bring his first and almost certainly only season in Washington to a close. Pryor finishes the year with just 20 catches for 240 yards and a touchdown. He will likely have to settle for prove-it type deals again once he hits free agency.

Redskins FS Montae Nicholson is in the concussion protocol.

The fourth-round rookie has made six starts but missed some time with injury. He's been providing solid, if unspectacular, snaps.
Nov 20 - 3:09 PM

Terrelle Pryor is undergoing ankle surgery on Monday.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport terms the operation a "scope," and reports a timeline will be established once Pryor is out of surgery. With only six games remaining, it's possible Pryor misses the rest of the season, though scopes can come with surprisingly short timetables. It's just the latest disappointment in Pryor's woeful first year in a Redskins uniform. His absence locks Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson and Ryan Grant in as Washington's top three receivers.
Nov 20 - 2:07 PM

Ryan Grant caught 3-of-3 targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 11 loss to the Saints.

Grant's score was a 40-yarder where he was left all alone as the Saints brought the house on a blitz. He literally walked into the end zone. Grant has settled in as the Redskins' No. 3 receiver as Terrelle Pryor has faded from relevance. It isn't translating to legitimate fantasy value.
Nov 19 - 6:51 PM

Jamison Crowder caught 7-of-8 targets for 72 yards in the Redskins' Week 11 loss to the Saints.

Finally healthy, Crowder has now cleared 70 yards in three straight games, and is being treated as the Redskins' No. 1 receiver by Kirk Cousins. Crowder is more floor than upside, but he'll have a great shot at hitting both on Thanksgiving night against the Giants' pathetic defense.
Nov 19 - 6:43 PM

Josh Doctson caught 4-of-7 targets for 81 yards in the Redskins' Week 11 loss to the Saints.

The 81 yards were a new career high for the sophomore wideout. Kirk Cousins was throwing Doctson jump ball after jump ball, and he was going up and getting them. It's what the Redskins had in mind when they made him the No. 22 overall pick in 2016. One of Doctson's missed connections was a would-be interception he nearly turned into a score. Seemingly growing in confidence each week, Doctson will be an upside WR4 on Thanksgiving night against the Giants.
Nov 19 - 6:43 PM

Vernon Davis caught 3-of-6 targets for 67 yards in the Redskins' Week 11 loss to the Saints.

One of Davis' missed connections was a drop. He was briefly shaken up in the second half, but was never announced with an injury. Davis has proven to be a veritable lock for 60 yards when Jordan Reed sits. Reed (ankle) didn't seem particularly close to playing in Week 11, and the Redskins will be on a short week for Week 12. If Reed sits, Davis will be a mouthwatering play against the Giants' league-worst tight end defense on Thanksgiving.
Nov 19 - 6:42 PM

Samaje Perine rushed 23 times for 117 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 11 loss to the Saints.

Perine added a nine-yard catch. His only other passing target was a drop on a screen. Known for putting the ball on the ground, Perine also committed a butterfingers fumble, but he was thankfully ruled down. Really struggling so far in 2017 entering today, Perine not only emerged with by far the best game of his rookie campaign, but even more opportunity with Chris Thompson (broken leg) done for the year. There will be plenty of drives to finish for the Redskins' solid offense, putting Perine squarely in the RB2 mix, even with bye weeks officially over.
Nov 19 - 5:55 PM

Redskins RB Chris Thompson has been diagnosed with a broken right fibula and requires season-ending surgery.

Brutal, though it was the expected outcome after Thompson got rolled up in ugly fashion at the Superdome on Sunday. It ends a breakout campaign for a player who entered Week 11 leading the Redskins in both rushing and receiving. Thompson had been Kirk Cousins' most trusted target. Now the Redskins are left with Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall at running back. Perine will bang between the tackles while Marshall will try to catch some passes.
Nov 19 - 4:44 PM

Kirk Cousins completed 22-of-32 passes for 322 yards and three touchdowns in the Redskins' 34-31, Week 11 overtime loss to the Saints.

Cousins played a nearly perfect game, finding his receivers in space, giving them chances to win 1-on-1s and delivering huge throws in the face of pressure. The Redskins' defense, on the other hand, suffered an incomprehensible meltdown, blowing a 31-16 lead with 5:58 remaining. The Saints' offense became a freight train against the Redskins' soft coverage. Cousins committed a late intentional grounding, but was more or less blameless in the debacle. The biggest news for Cousins today was the loss of Chris Thompson for the season. He has been Cousins' most effective pass catcher all year. Cousins will still be a high-end QB1 for Thanksgiving night against the Giants.
Nov 19 - 4:34 PM

Chris Thompson was carted off the field with a right leg injury in the Redskins' Week 11 game against the Saints and will not return.

Devastating. Thompson's right leg got rolled up from behind by Sheldon Rankins. Thompson made it immediately clear he was dealing with a serious injury, and was quickly fitted for an air cast before being carted to the locker room. It had the looks of a season-ending injury. It's a devastating one for the Redskins, as Thompson is both their No. 1 running back and most productive (by yardage) receiver. Byron Marshall should take over as the Redskins' passing-down back behind Samaje Perine.
Nov 19 - 3:11 PM

Redskins DE Terrell McClain was forced from Sunday's game against the Saints with a toe injury, and will not return.

McClain went down in the first half and was ruled out after the break. He's been playing roughly 30 weekly snaps his first year as a Redskin.
Nov 19 - 2:58 PM

Redskins LG Shawn Lauvao suffered a stinger in Sunday's game against the Saints, and will not return.

Ty Nsekhe will finish the game at left guard. Frequently injured, Lauvao went down in the first half, and was ruled out after the break.
Nov 19 - 2:56 PM

Redskins declared WR Terrelle Pryor, TE Jordan Reed, CB Quinton Dunbar, OG Arie Kouandjio, OG Spencer Long, WR Brian Quick and Caraun Reid inactive for Week 11 against the Saints.

Pryor and Reed are notable names, but their absences will have little to no effect on the offense in New Orleans. With Kenny Vaccaro sidelined for the Saints, Jamison Crowder is set up for a big day.
Nov 19 - 11:36 AM

Ryan Grant (concussion) is questionable for Week 11 against the Saints.

Grant remains in the concussion protocol despite getting in some practice this week. His status is up in the air for Sunday. With Terrelle Pryor sidelined and Brian Quick also questionable, the Redskins could be down to Josh Doctson, Jamison Crowder, and Maurice Harris as their only healthy wideouts.
