Redskins Injury Report: Robert Griffin III, Tracy Porter, Alfred Morris

By on 10/27/2014 01:30:00 PM

The Washington Redskins don't expect to have too many new injuries to deal with when they try to upset the rival Dallas Cowboys on “Monday Night Football.”

Washington lost star linebacker Brian Orakpo for the season last week to a torn pectoral muscle, the third of his career. Otherwise, Washington's final Week 8 injury report has only a couple of big names on it.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III participated in limited practice and is listed as questionable, but will not be on the active roster. Washington is likely targeting Nov. 16 for Griffin's return from a dislocated ankle, as the Redskins play the Minnesota Vikings before having a bye.

Cornerback Tracy Porter is the only other player listed as questionable. Porter hasn't been able to play since Week 4 with a hamstring injury, but was able to participate in limited practice this week.

Running back Alfred Morris suffered a minor ankle injury in last week's win over the Tennessee Titans and is listed is probable. Morris returned to the game and wasn't limited in practice this week, so the injury doesn't appear to be impacting him much.

Starting tackles Trent Williams and Tyler Polumbus are dealing with knee injuries, but are both listed as probable. Safety Ryan Clark is probable to play with ankle and shoulder injuries despite being limited in practice all week.

Linebacker Perry Riley Jr. is also probable to play after missing two games with a knee injury.

Washington is a big road underdog on Monday night, but would love to pull a huge upset over it's division rival. The Redskins will hope backup quarterback Colt McCoy can play as well as he did last week against Tennessee.
