#WASvsPHI Injury Report: DeSean Jackson Probable


The Redskins will be mostly healthy entering tomorrow's Week 16 matchup with the Eagles, as only Perry Riley Jr. is out for the game. Five other players questionable.

The Washington Redskins will walk into Lincoln Financial Field tomorrow night with a roster that has only linebacker Perry Riley Jr. confirmed out for the game.

Dashon Goldson, Ryan Grant, Matt Jones, Josh LeRibeus and Morgan Moses, meanwhile, will be questionable for the primetime NFC East tilt between the Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles.

Goldson (rib/knee/shoulder) practiced on Thursday and Friday, which was a walkthrough, in a limited capacity after not participating in Wednesday's session.

"Dashon Goldson is a little beat up," Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said this week. "There's a level of concern there, but, you know, with the injuries that he has, I think with another good day of rest [pm Thursday] – maybe get him some limited work in individual – I think he'll be feeling better. But we'll have to wait and see."

Goldson leads the Redskins in tackles this season with 98.

Grant (abdomen), Jones (hip), LeRibeus (ankle) and Moses (ankle) were limited in all three practices this week.

Moses has been dealing with the injury that kept him out of the latter stages of the Redskins victory over the Bills. He was replaced by Ty Neskhe, who played a total of 28 snaps.

DeSean Jackson (foot/knee) returned to practice with a limited workload on Thursday after not participating in Wednesday's practice. While Friday's practice was a walkthrough, he was a full participant. 

Jackson is listed as probable.

A lot of attention is swirling around Jackson as he'll make his return to Philadelphia, but the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver is downplaying the reunion.

"It's just another game," Jackson told reporters this week. "I'm excited about it, highly anticipate it, but I'm not going to make it more than what it is. We've got a game to do, to go win. That's really all that matters. Regardless of what team it is or the name on the jersey, we don't really care about that. We've just got a game to go win and it's a must-win for us." 

Will Compton (neck), Kedric Golston (calf), Jason Hatcher (neck/knee), Jeron Johnson (hamstring), Frank Kearse (finger), Ryan Kerrigan (toe), Jordan Reed (shoulder), Keenan Robinson (shoulder) and Chris Thompson (shoulder) all are listed as probable for the game as well.

Thompson, who has missed the last two games, said he's feeling confident heading into tomorrow night's game, as the shoulder shouldn't be a hinderance. 

"I'm ready to get back out there," Thompson said. "It's been a tough few weeks for me, and just being out on the field is my way of getting away from life. [Tuesday], I was pretty emotional as you could tell on the sideline."
