ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins felt the impact of not having fullback Darrel Young or tight end Jordan Reed active for Sunday's 24-17 loss to the New York Giants. Here's an update on them in addition to three other players who suffered injuries Sunday:
Tight end Jordan Reed: He was going to play Sunday until his head started bothering him during pregame warm-ups. Therefore, he’ll once again go through the concussion protocol.
Linebacker London Fletcher: He suffered a sprained left ankle late in the fourth quarter after safety Bacarri Rambo rolled up on him after a tackle. Coach Mike Shanahan said he’ll have a better idea of how bad Fletcher’s ankle is on Wednesday. “I’ll probably be pretty sore, but I should be OK,” Fletcher said after the game. There's no reason to believe yet that his consecutive games streak of 252 is in jeopardy.
Fullback Darrel Young: There’s no real update on Young, who missed the past two weeks with a hamstring injury. The Redskins are being cautious with him because of his history of such injuries. Young had expressed confidence each of the past two weeks that he would play.
Safety Reed Doughty: He suffered another concussion, but coach Mike Shanahan said they won’t treat it any differently because it’s his second one of the season.
Corner DeAngelo Hall: Shanahan said his hip was sore, but he'll have a better update on Wednesday.
Tight end Niles Paul: Shanahan said he worked out at Redskins Park Monday morning after missing the game, and all practices last week, because of an illness.
