Eagles rookie running back Wendell Smallwood was knocked from Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins with a right-knee injury.

Smallwood suffered the injury in the second quarter and was downgraded to 'out' after halftime.

Related players: Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles

Fantasy Impact:

In Smallwood's absence, wide receiver Nelson Agholor took over kickoff return duties from the rookie fifth-round draft choice out of West Virginia. Darren Sproles was also injured fielding a punt, leaving Ryan Mathews to take all of the snaps from the RB position later in the game.

Eagles RB Darren Sproles leaves games with suspected head injury

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

Philadelphia Eagles star Darren Sproles left Sunday's game against the Redskins in the fourth quarter after a scary and dangerous hit on a punt return.

Washington's Deshazor Everett leveled Sproles before he caught the ball, and he had to be helped from the locker room.

Fantasy Impact:

Sproles never returned after taking the shot. His status for Week 15 is certainly up in the air. The Eagles also lost Wendell Smallwood to a knee injury leaving Ryan Mathews to carry the load later in the game.

Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (hip) took full practice reps all week. Crowder will be fine to face the Eagles. He has at least 88 yards and/or a touchdown in seven straight games, though his targets are sometimes spotty.

Redskins TE Derek Carrier (knee, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 14.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 14. Reed may be able to return this week, but he was in “obvious pain” on Thursday. Vernon Davis would be a nice start if Reed can’t play. Washington plays early on Sunday.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Reed may be able to return this week, but he was in “obvious pain” on Thursday. Vernon Davis would be a nice start if Reed can’t play. For what it’s worth, Reed says that he’ll play on Sunday.

Still no timeline for Skins TE Jordan Reed

CSN Mid-Atlantic - [Full Article]

The Redskins best pass cacther did not play in a loss to the Cardinals, and it appears there is still no clear timeline for Jordan Reed's return to the field.

"Jordan will be day-to-day," Washington coach Jay Gruden said. "You know, we just have to wait and see."

Related players: Vernon Davis

Fantasy Impact:

Gruden issued the same statement on Reed last week, and the tight end proceeded to miss all Redskins practices for the week and was announced out for the Arizona game on Friday. Reed's injury came on Thanksgiving in Dallas when he separated his shoulder diving in the end zone for a Kirk Cousins' pass during the first half. Vernon Davis would continue to replace Reed as the team's TE1.

Skins want RB Rob Kelley more involved

Tuesday, December 6, 2016, 8:45am

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Washington Redskins want Rob Kelley to be a bigger factor down the stretch, certainly more than he’s been in the last two games.

Kelley is coming off a 14-carry, 63-yard game in Sunday’s loss to Arizona. That’s not the ideal number of carries for coach Jay Gruden’s liking. It didn’t stem from needing to throw to catch up; rather, the Redskins attempted passes on nine of their first 10 plays in the 31-23 loss.

“There’s no doubt about it, we would like to get more of him involved,” Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. “We had a couple times [Sunday] where we actually had runs called and we got out of them because their safety was down and they were unblockable as far as the run was concerned. We ideally would like to get that running game going a little bit more -- more touches for Robert, because he’s been very good. We have got to make sure that we get him more involved, maintain the time of possession and stay more balanced.”

Fantasy Impact:

In Kelley’s first three starts, he rushed for 87, 97 and 137 yards. In his last two, it’s been 37 and 63 yards.
In order to keep the offense balanced, the Redskins would like to hand the ball to Rob Kelley more and let him run, the story said. They may be able to do just that this week against the Eagles. Last time the teams met, the Skins rushed for 230 yards led by Matt Jones.

Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham has oblique contusion

Monday, December 5, 2016, 2:20pm

NJ - [Full Article]

Eagles wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham suffered an oblique contusion in Sunday's 32-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals and Pederson says that he likely will not practice but expects the 23-year-old to play Sunday afternoon against the Washington Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field.

Prior to suffering the injury, Green-Beckham caught four passes for 29 yards against the Bengals on Sunday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact:

DGB was coming on a bit as of late, although it was mostly garbage time production. Looks like he should be good to go in what is a must-win for the Eagles this week.

Skins WR Jamison Crowder has hip pointer

Redskins WR Jamison Crowder dealing with a hip pointer.

Fantasy Impact:

Finlay's tweet added that Crowder was in pain, but no one seems to know if Crowder missed any time because of the injury. He was on the field late in the game. It's a situation to monitor this week and the team has a nice matchup with the Eagles.
