Redskins LT Trent Williams says there's "nothing torn" in his right knee, and that he's "hopeful" of starting Monday's game against the Seahawks.

Williams didn't even undergo an MRI after departing last week's blowout loss, and has "no instability" in his knee. If there's a reason he could be held out, it's the Redskins' short turnaround between Weeks 5 and 6. Sitting Monday would give Williams over two weeks of rest. That could be the best course of action to keep him on the field for the rest of 2014.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) was participating in individual work during Tuesday's practice.

Reed had been doing work on the side the last two weeks and likely needs to practice at least one day to play in Monday night's game against Seattle. Niles Paul (concussion) was also held out of Tuesday's practice, leaving Logan Paulsen to get reps with the first-team offense. Regardless, Reed needs to be owned in just about all formats as a true difference-making talent in the seam for Jay Gruden.

Redskins TE Niles Paul (concussion) is not practicing Tuesday.

Paul remains in the concussion protocol and should be considered very questionable for Week 5. He has no memory of the hit that knocked him out. Jordan Reed's (hamstring) status is also up in the air. Logan Paulsen is currently Washington's only healthy tight end.

Redskins signed CB Richard Crawford.

The 2012 seventh-rounder was waived at final cuts. He'll help out on special teams.
Sep 29 - 1:45 PM

Redskins signed S Jamarca Sanford.

The Redskins are grasping to plug holes in a secondary that has already given up nine touchdown passes in four games. Sanford made 12 starts for the Vikings last season, earning a plus grade from PFF in pass coverage.

Redskins LT Trent Williams did not need an MRI exam on his injured right knee.

Coach Jay Gruden said Williams had no instability in his knee Friday morning. He will be listed as day-to-day, and could play Week 5 against the Seahawks. An elite left tackle, Williams avoiding a serious injury is a big boost for the Washington offensive line.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden acknowledged Friday that Jordan Reed's Week 1 hamstring injury was "bad."

He hasn't played since, of course. Per Gruden, Reed is "still rehabbing" with a "chance" to play in Week 5 against Seattle. We wouldn't bet on it. As Niles Paul was concussed in Thursday night's loss to the Giants, the Redskins might have to turn to Logan Paulsen as their primary tight end next week.
Sep 26 - 3:33 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams will undergo an MRI on his injured right knee Friday.

Williams said after Thursday night's game that there was no ligament damage in his knee, but he thinks his kneecap popped out of place and back in when he was forced to leave the loss to the Giants. The Redskins can ill afford to lose Williams with immobile Kirk Cousins now at quarterback. He's an elite left tackle.

Logan Paulsen caught 3-of-3 targets for 28 yards in the Redskins' Week 4 loss to the Giants, also losing a fumble.

Paulsen's cough up came two plays after the Redskins lost Niles Paul to a concussion. Paulsen will get the start in Week 5 against the Seahawks if neither Paul nor Jordan Reed (hamstring) can go. He won't be on the TE2 radar.
Sep 26 - 12:46 AM

Redskins WR Ryan Grant was held without a catch on one target in Washington's Week 4 loss to the Giants.

Grant now has just one target over his past two games, and has been held without a catch in 3-of-4 contests. He's miles from re-draft relevance.
Sep 26 - 12:45 AM

Andre Roberts caught 1-of-4 targets for 18 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 4 loss to the Giants.

The score was Roberts' first in Washington. Roberts is a distant No. 3 on the depth chart behind Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson, but could see some extra run in Week 5 if neither Niles Paul (concussion) nor Jordan Reed (hamstring) can suit up.
Sep 26 - 12:43 AM

Roy Helu caught 5-of-5 targets for 78 yards in the Redskins' Week 4 loss to the Giants, adding two carries for eight yards.

Four of Helu's touches came in the fourth quarter of a game already well out of reach. Helu continues to look explosive with the ball in his hands, but remains zero threat to Alfred Morris' early-down supremacy. Helu is a high-upside handcuff, but a standalone RB4. His work is simply too sporadic.
Sep 26 - 12:40 AM

Pierre Garcon caught 2-of-6 targets for 28 yards in Washington's Week 4 loss to the Giants.

Garcon was the target on one of Kirk Cousins' four picks, but there was nothing he could do. Cousins simply sailed the ball over his head. For the second straight week, Garcon went as Cousins went, only this time Cousins took the Redskins' offense into the gutter. Cousins and company are going to have a hard time bouncing back in Week 5, as the Seahawks are coming to town. Garcon will be a low-end WR2.
Sep 26 - 12:17 AM

DeSean Jackson caught 1-of-3 targets for nine yards in Washington's Week 4 loss.

One of D-Jax's missed targets was an embarrassing drop on a quick screen. Jackson simply never had a chance to get into a rhythm as Kirk Cousins threw ducks all over the field, tossing four picks while failing miserably on his attempts to drive the ball. Jackson will be a shaky WR3 in Week 5, as the Redskins are hosting the Seahawks.
Sep 26 - 12:15 AM

Alfred Morris rushed 12 times for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 4 loss to the Giants, adding three catches for 27 yards.

The three-catch night was just the second of Morris' career. Fantasy owners were lucky Morris scored his 20-yard touchdown in the third quarter, as game flow limited him to just five touches thereafter. That's always the risk with Morris, but the Redskins can't get waxed any worse than they did on Thursday going forward. Morris will be a borderline RB1 for Week 5, when Washington hosts the world-champion Seahawks.
