#PHIvsWAS Injury Report: Chris Culliver Questionable


The Washington Redskins on Friday confirmed DeSean Jackson, DeAngelo Hall and Perry Riley Jr. are all out for the game with cornerback Chris Culliver questionable for action.

The Redskins will once again be without wide receiver DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Perry Riley Jr. (calf) on Sunday for their game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

This is the third straight game Jackson has missed since suffering the injury in the first quarter of the Redskins' Week 1 game against the Miami Dolphins.

It's been a frustrating few months for Jackson, the former Eagle who thrived against his old team last season.

Before the hamstring pull, Jackson dealt with a shoulder injury that kept him out of the entire preseason.

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that Jackson's injury could keep him out for three or four weeks.

"Possibly could be shorter, but you never know with hamstrings," Gruden said on Sept. 14. "I don't know if it had a lot to do with him missing the preseason, it could very well have. But we don't know that. He just went for a deep ball and pulled it."

Riley Jr., meanwhile, came out of the Redskins' 24-10 victory over the St. Louis Rams after suffering a calf injury in the second half of the game.

In his place will once again be Will Compton, a third-year linebacker out of Nebraska.

Compton recorded 11 tackles against the New York Giants last week. Against Philadelphia in Week 16 last year, he tallied a career-high 16 tackles.

DeAngelo Hall is also listed as out for this weekend's NFC East battle with a toe injury that knocked him out of the Giants game.

Gruden said last week that like Jackson's injury, Hall's could be about three to four weeks.

Chris Culliver (knee), Kedric Golston (hand) and Josh LeRibeus are all questionable for the game.

A look back at some of the top images in games between the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles.

Culliver was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice session, but did not participate either Thursday or Friday.

"He's got just some soreness down there," Gruden said. "I don't know if it's wear-and-tear or what it is. Just a little sore, we're taking it easy on him trying to get that thing right for Sunday. I feel I'm optimistic but you never know. It's up to him and how he feels if the trainers can get him well."

Golston fractured his fourth mertatarsal in the Redskins' loss to the Giants, but re-entered the game with a cast on.

Kory Lichtensteiger (finger), Colt McCoy (foot) and Morgan Moses (knee/elbow) are all listed as probable, meaning it is "virtually certain" they will be available. Defensive end Jason Hatcher, meanwhile, missed Friday's game for non-injury-related reasons, and is expected to play on Sunday.

For the Eagles, linebacker Kiko Alonso (knee), defensive end Taylor Hart (shoulder) and defensive end Cedric Thornton (hand) have all been ruled out while Jason Peters (quad), Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) and DeMarco Murray (hamstring) are all questionable, among others.

Peters – a seven-time Pro Bowler – has started the last 35 games for the Eagles since suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon that kept him out of the 2012 season.

Murray was the Eagles' prized free agent addition, but the reigning rushing champion was off to a historically bad start through two games, and did not appear in last weekend's game.

On 21 carries this season, the Oklahoma product had just 21 yards on 11 carries for a paltry 0.5 yards per carry average.
