Four Redskins starters nursed injuries on Tuesday as their team begin laying the groundwork for Thursday afternoon’s game at AT&T Stadium against the Dallas Cowboys.
Because of the quick turnaround between Sunday night’s win over the Packers, and this week’s game, the Redskins held only a walkthrough and meetings on Tuesday. The injury report statuses were estimates of what conditions players would have been in had the team held practice.
Defensive end Chris Baker was limited with a hamstring injury. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson (shoulder), left tackle Ty Nsekhe (ankle), outside linebacker Preston Smith (back) also were listed as limited on Washington’s injury report.
Safety Will Blackmon (thumb), wide receiver Jamison Crowder (back) and right tackle Morgan Moses (ankle) all were listed as full participants. Long snapper Nick Sundberg (back) did not participate.
“I think right now we’re pretty good,” Coach Jay Gruden said. “You know, Nsekhe is a little sore. We’re not really going to have a chance to really test it out because we’re not really practicing. We’re just doing mainly walkthroughs. I feel good about his status for Thursday’s game. And in general, everybody else is where they are: normal bumps and bruises, like you say, but I think they’ll fight through it and be able to get through this game.”
The Redskins have a lengthier break following Thursday’s game, not playing again until Sunday, Dec. 4, on the road against the Arizona Cardinals.
