Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said that running back Alfred Morris, place kicker Kai Forbath and tight end Jordan Reed all practiced fully after nursing various injuries. Meanwhile tight end Logan Paulsen and linebacker Brandon Jenkins were limited.
Backup nose tackle Chris Neild did not practice because of a calf injury.
Morris suffered bruised ribs on his left side during Washington’s game at Oakland and didn’t finish the game. Reed missed that game with a bruised thigh, and Forbath had missed the past three contests with a strained groin. Paulsen, meanwhile, strained his right medial collateral ligament in that Oakland game. Jenkins sprained his right ankle in Washington’s Week 3 matchup with Detroit and didn’t play against Oakland.
Morris and Reed both said on Monday that they expected to be able to play against Dallas on Sunday. Morris reiterated that confidence on Wednesday. Forbath also said he was hopeful.
The Redskins last week released John Potter, who had kicked in place of Forbath.
Forbath has now kicked last Thursday, on Monday and again on Wednesday.
Shanahan said that while anything could happen, he didn’t anticipate Forbath suffering a a setback that would keep him from playing Sunday.
