Washington Redskins slot receiver Jamison Crowder did not participate in practice Thursday and is unlikely to play Sunday. He continues to rehab an ankle injury that has kept him from the last five games.
Running back Chris Thompson was at practice working with trainers in the rehab area along with cornerback Quinton Dunbar during the period open to media, but did not officially practice. Dustin Hopkins (groin) also did not participate, but he will kick in Friday’s practice to determine if he can play Sunday. The team held a precautionary workout for kickers on Tuesday.
The Redskins did get some good news on an injured receiver with the return of rookie Trey Quinn from injured reserve. Quinn, who went into the season as a punt returner and backup slot receiver, had ankle surgery after the first game of the season.
“I guess a good way to look at it is they added stuff to my ankle so it should be better than normal, I mean they added screws and stuff, it should be the best ankle in the league,” Quinn said. “They feel great.”
Asked if he could pick something else to add to his foot to improve it, Quinn glanced around the locker room.
“I would pick pieces of all the other players in this room,” he said.
Coach Jay Gruden said the replacement kicker will handle field goals and kickoffs if Hopkins is unavailable, but the coaching staff remains optimistic.
Left tackle Trent Williams (thumb) has already been ruled out.
