Redskins injured OL to increase work; Brian Quick suffers concussion

It didn’t take veteran defensive lineman Arthur Jones to join the Washington Redskins list of injured players – one game in fact.

Jones suffered a dislocated shoulder and he could miss some time, coach Jay Gruden said. They’ll know more later in the week after further evaluations. The Redskins signed Jones last week after Matt Ioannidis suffered a broken bone in his hand. Ioannidis might return this week if doctors say he can play in a padded cast.

Also, receiver Brian Quick suffered a concussion after his 31-yard catch in the fourth quarter when safety Kam Chancellor appeared to make a helmet-to-helmet hit at the end of the play. Quick received his most playinf time of the season and finished with three catches for 49 yards.

Here’s a look at other key injury updates:

OT Trent Williams (knee): He remains day to day and, as always, it’s about pain tolerance. Doctors wanted him to rest for a couple weeks so he missed the last two games. Williams typically pushes himself, but even he’s trying to be cautious with his current situation.

G Brandon Scherff (knee): He dressed but didn’t play Sunday. But they needed someone for emergency duty. Scherff was limited last week, doing some work in individuals. He’s expected to increase his activity this week, Gruden said.

C Spencer Long (knee/quad): He’ll also increase his activity this week so the Redskins can better gauge his situation. Long has missed the last two games, with rookie Chase Roullier filling in. Roullier will be a solid starter someday. But a healthy Long gives the Redskins more options; he can fill in at guard, too.

G Shawn Lauvao (stinger): Gruden said Lauvao is getting his range of motion back and regaining some strength. He, too, did not play Sunday. He’s improving.

TE Jordan Reed (hamstring): He’s considered day-to-day, but also improving. He didn’t do much last week and missed Sunday’s game. The good news for Washington is that veteran tight end Vernon Davis, whose right hand was swollen after the game because of a bone bruise, should be able to play.

TE Niles Paul (concussion): He missed Sunday’s game as well; he’ll have to be cleared before he can return.

WR Jamison Crowder (hamstring): Like Reed, Gruden said he’s improving and considered day to day. On Friday, Crowder wanted to make sure he was fully recovered so he didn’t make his hamstring worse and cost himself four or five games. He was able to do light agility work last week, a good sign.

OT Ty Nsekhe (core muscle injury): He's expected to participate in individual work this week, the first time he'll do so since getting hurt in Week 3. At the time it was called a three- to six-week injury.
