Wide receiver DeSean Jackson and five other Redskins players missed Thursday’s practice with injuries and remain questionable for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams.
Jackson, who leads the Redskins in receiving yards and touchdown catches, continues to nurse the lower leg bruise that forced him out of last week’s game against the Colts.
Meanwhile, two other starters, inside linebacker Keenan Robinson (sprained medial collateral ligament), and strong safety Brandon Meriweather (sprained toe) also were unable to practice. Backup defensive lineman Kedric Golston (foot, back), cornerback Chase Minnifield (concussion) and cornerback E.J. Biggers (concussion) all remained sidelined as well.
Defensive end Jason Hatcher (knee), nose tackle Chris Baker (chest) and safety Ryan Clark (stinger) all practiced in a limited capacity.
Backup linebacker Will Compton (stinger) practiced fully despite receiving treatment for his injury. He would start at inside linebacker in place of Robinson if the third-year pro cannot play Sunday. Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan (wrist) and running back Silas Redd Jr. (rib) also practiced fully.
Backup tackle Tyler Polumbus missed practice to tend to a family matter, Coach Jay Gruden said.
