Redskins Injury Report: Jordan Reed, Niles Paul, Trent Williams

By on 10/06/2014 03:00:00 PM

The Washington Redskins could have a few important players out when they welcome the Seattle Seahawks for “Monday Night Football.”

Washington's big unknown heading into the game is at the tight end position, as Jordan Reed (hamstring) and Niles Paul (concussion) are both listed as questionable on the Redskins' final injury report. Paul seems the more likely of the two to play, as he was able to participate in full practice late in the week while Reed was held out on Saturday.

Starting left tackle Trent Williams was limited in practice this week with a knee injury and is listed as questionable, which could be a major concern going up against a dangerous Seattle pass rush. Guard Shawn Lauvao is also questionable with a knee injury, although he was able to practice at full capacity on Saturday.

Washington will be without backup cornerback Tracy Porter, who has been ruled out with a hamstring injury. The only other player officially listed as out for the Redskins is Robert Griffin III, although head coach Jay Gruden said Griffin was making progress towards returning from a dislocated ankle.

The Redskins have a few backup defensive players who will be evaluated closer to game time. Defensive lineman Kedric Golston (groin), linebacker Akeem Jordan (knee) and safety Trenton Robinson (ankle) are all listed as questionable.

Starting nose tackle Chris Baker (shoulder), starting defensive end Jason Hatcher (hamstring) and reserve defensive end Jarvis Jenkins (rib) should both be able to play. Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Orakpo appears on the report with a finger injury, although he was not limited in practice and is listed as probable.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson is still on the report with the shoulder injury he suffered in Week 2, but it would take something unexpected to keep him out Monday night.
