Redskins RB Matt Jones (knee) missed practice again Thursday. Jones has some “soreness in his knee” and “some pain cutting” so he hasn’t practiced yet this week, per beat writer John Keim. Rob Kelley would be the lead back with a lot of Chris Thompson as well. The team doesn’t want to overload Thompson since he’s a smaller back.

Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (groin) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Crowder should be fine to play on Sunday, but if Jordan Reed returns, he’ll be a less attractive start.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring, shoulder) took limited practice reps again Thursday. The limited Wednesday practice indicates that Jackson should be able to play through the injuries, though the hamstring injury is new.

Redskins TE Vernon Davis (groin) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Davis will be a Sneaky Start if Jordan Reed remains out.

Skins to wait and see on TE Jordan Reed

Monday, October 24, 2016, 5:36pm

Washington Post - [Full Article]

TE Jordan Reed has been cleared to practice when the Redskins hit the field again on Wednesday, HC Jay Gruden said. But the fourth-year veteran, who has missed two games since his Week 5 concussion, isn’t yet cleared to play Sunday.

“No, not necessarily,” Gruden said during his Monday afternoon press conference, when asked if Reed will play on Sunday. “He’s been cleared to practice but he still needs to be cleared by the independent doctor.”

Fantasy Impact:

The Redskins have a bye in Week 9 and some reports have said the team may hold out Reed until Week 10 when they return from the week off. Vernon Davis played pretty well the last two weeks and makes for a nice fill-in for Reed owners. He had a 7-79-0 last week and was about a yard short of a TD on one of his catches.

Skins Beat: Team now has questions at RB

CSN Mid-Atlantic - [Full Article]

A week ago the Redskins rushed for 230 yards against a strong Eagles defense. Matt Jones led the way, gaining 135 yards including 57 on a game-clinching long run in the last minutes of the game.

Now fast forward to today and there is widespread clamoring for Matt Jones to be benched, perhaps permanently. Having a hand in three fumbles, two of which were lost, will do that.

Related players: Chris Thompson, Rob Kelley

Fantasy Impact:

It's a dicey situation for Jones owners. Thompson isn't a carry-the-load kind of back and Kelly has looked good but doesn't have the experience. The author speculated Jones gets limited work this week with Thompson and Kelley splitting a bulk of the workload with about 10-12 carries each and Jones perhaps gets another chance to become the primary RB in the near future. It's a situation that needs to be monitored. As we said before, the Skins having any kind of split with their lack of running success at times doesn't make anyone a very solid fantasy option.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson (achilles) was removed from the injury report Friday.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 7. We believe Jackson will play. He has a great matchup with the Lions, but if he can’t go, it means more targets for Jamison Crowder and Pierre Garçon (and Vernon Davis). Washington plays early on Sunday.

Friday, October 21, 2016, 6:26pm

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion, out) missed practice again Friday and is out for Week 7. With Reed officially out, owners can stream Vernon Davis in a nice matchup with the Lions (#30 in TE aFPA). Davis turned four targets into 50 yards and a touchdown last week in a tough matchup against the Eagles.
