The Washington Redskins are currently feeling the effects of multiple injuries across their football team. For this franchise, injuries have been the main topic of conversation for literally weeks now as the Redskins have often struggled without key players across the offensive line and defensive secondary.

That storyline hasn’t changed this week as the team is reeling across the board due to injuries. Washington moved four players to the injured reserve just yesterday and now have 16 players on that list, many of which were substantial contributors to the team. The current injury report for week 12 contains 22 names, which has become a ridiculous normality at Redskins Park this season.

Jay Gruden addresses the Redskins injury report

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden addressed the week 12 injury report at his press conference Wednesday afternoon.

“Out will be Terrell McClain. Montae Nicholson is out. Out will be Chase Roullier. Out will be – who else? I think that’s it. The rest will be questionable. I can’t read it, but you’ll get the rest of the injury report later.”

So for the record, Gruden said TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) would be out on Tuesday, now we can add safety Montae Nicholson (concussion), center Chase Roullier (hand), and DT Terrell McClain (toe) as being out Sunday.

Eleven other players are listed as questionable on the eve of the Redskins taking on the New York Giants in their Thanksgiving primetime rivalry matchup at FedEx Field. Jay Gruden eluded to the fact that seven or eight of them would be game-time decisions.

Those 11 questionable players are LT Trent Williams, LB's Zach Brown, Martrell Spaight, and Ryan Anderson. Receiver Ryan Grant, DL Matt Ioannidis, RT Morgan Moses, tackle Ty Nsekhe, DL Anthony Lanier, RB Samaje Perine, and RG Brandon Scherff.

Four players moved to injured reserve

As mentioned above the Redskins had to add four players to their injured reserve list. The list starts with receiver Terrelle Pryor, who Gruden says has been dealing with an ankle issue the entire season and now needs surgery. Linemen Spencer Long and Shawn Lauvao were both placed on the list; Long has had problems all season with both his knees while Lauvao has been dealing with a reoccurring stinger issue. Last but certainly not least, the Redskins were forced to put their best offensive weapon on the list as Gruden said running back Chris Thompson was placed on the list with a fractured fibula.

Thompson has already had the issue corrected but will need several months before he's anywhere near a comeback.

The NFL announced their list of 27 semifinalists for the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame class. Among those announced was Redskins legend Joe Jacoby, who made the list for the sixth straight time and eighth time overall. It's a complete disgrace that Joe isn't already in the Hall, but to make things more hectic, this will be Jacoby's last year of modern-day eligibility.
