Washington Redskins Player News: All Positions

News: Reed (concussion) may be "weeks" from gaining clearance to play, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Impact: Reed initially suffered the concussion in preseason Week 3, marking his seventh known head injury since his days at the University of Florida. He'll miss his third consecutive game to begin the season Monday against the Bears, and if Finlay's report proves to be true, Reed isn't close to getting through the league's protocol. As long as Reed is sidelined, the Redskins will lean on Vernon Davis and Jeremy Sprinkle at tight end.
News: Dunbar (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with Chicago, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Impact: Dunbar was originally considered questionable after not being able to practice all week, but it seems he'll need more time to recover from this knee injury. The fifth-year-pro missed Week 2 against Dallas with this issue as well. Fabian Moreau (ankle) and Aaron Colvin are the likeliest candidates to take over at corner opposite Josh Norman for Monday's prime-time game.
News: Davis (knee) has been cleared to play in Monday's game against the Bears.
Impact: Davis popped up on the injury report after not participating in Friday's practice. However, it looks like the Redskins were just opting to err on the side of caution. Barring any setbacks, he should be good to go for his normal role of providing depth at receiver and contributing on special teams.
News: McKinzy (hip) has been ruled out for Monday's game versus the Bears.
Impact: McKinzy underwent an MRI on his hip earlier this week and never returned to practice. There are very few details regarding the severity of the injury, but he will not suit up for Week 3. In his absence, Ryan Anderson and Noah Spence should see some more snaps providing depth at outside linebacker.
News: Dunbar (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday's matchup with the Bears.
Impact: Dunbar recorded eight tackles in the Redskins' season opener, but also came out of the game with a knee injury. He subsequently missed Week 2 and was unable to practice all week. Given that information, his questionable designation appears somewhat optimistic at this point. Fabian Moreau and Aaron Colvin would presumably be in line for increased workloads should he ultimately sit.
News: The Redskins have officially listed Allen (knee) as questionable for Monday's game against the Bears.
Impact: Allen saw his workload increase each day at practice week, and even went as far as to deem himself ready to play. Although the team still opted to label him questionable, he appears on track to make his season debut. Allen recorded eight sacks in 2018, so his presence would certainly be beneficial to a Washington defense that has gotten to the quarterback just twice through two games.
News: McCoy (fibula) has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Bears.
Impact: With McCoy having logged another solid week of DNPs, rookie Dwayne Haskins will continue to act as QB Case Keenum's top backup for the time being.
News: Nicholson (foot) does not carry an injury designation for Monday night's game against the Bears.
Impact: Nicholson is thus slated to man his usual starting free safety slot Monday night. Through two games to date, he's logged 14 total tackles and a pick, numbers that put the 2017 fourth-rounder on the fantasy radar in IDP formats
News: Davis' fellow tight end, Jordan Reed (concussion), has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Bears, Adam Schefter of ESPNreports.
Impact: This will mark the third straight game where Davis will serve as the team's top pass-catching tight end in Reed's continued absence. After having hauled in seven of his 11 targets for 88 yards and a TD through his first two contests this season, Davis offers a degree of fantasy utility in Week 3, as well as any other week Reed is unavailable for that matter.
News: Reed (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Bears, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Impact: Reed will thus log a third straight absence to start the season, which sets the stage for Vernon Davis to continue to serve as Washington's top pass-catching tight end Monday.
News: Moreau (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice.
Impact: Barring a setback, Moreau will be ready for Monday night's game versus the Bears. This will be the 25-year-old's season debut, and he's looking to build off of a solid 2018 campaign where he registered 58 tackles, five pass breakups, an interception and three forced fumbles.
News: Nicholson (foot) didn't participate in Friday's practice.
Impact: Nicholson missed a couple drives in this past Sunday's loss to the Cowboys due to this foot injury, but he returned to the game. The Redskins may be exercising caution with their starting free safety, but he'll need to practice in some capacity Saturday. He's been a strong IDP asset so far with 14 tackles, two pass breakups and an interception.
News: Davis (knee) didn't participate in Friday's practice.
Impact: Davis appeared on the injury report with a new injury Friday, and he'll likely need to practice in some capacity Saturday to have a chance at playing Monday versus the Bears. The third-year pro has two career games under his belt and zero catches so far.
