The Washington Redskins have now released their first injury report for Week 1 ahead of Monday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and only four players were included on it.
Limited on Thursday during Washington’s practice were wide receiver Josh Doctson (Achilles) and defensive end Kendall Reyes (groin).
Doctson, the Redskins first-round pick this year, missed all of training camp and the preseason with a strained Achilles’ tendon.
Practicing fully on Thursday were starting running back Matt Jones (shoulder) and guard Spencer Long (ankle). Jones said recently that he intends to play Monday night against the Steelers as he attempts to overcome a separated shoulder that he suffered during a preseason game several weeks ago.
As for Long, he is not expected to start Monday night against the Steelers regardless of whether or not he’s healthy enough to play as Redskins head coach Jay Gruden announced Wednesday that Shawn Lauvao will start at left guard in that game after winning the job during the preseason.
