The Redskins enter this weekend’s game at Philadelphia in continued good health. The injury report put out on Wednesday after practice listed no players limited or out.
Instead, wide receiver Leonard Hankerson (hamstring), tight end Logan Paulsen (knee), running back Evan Royster (back) and safety Jose Gumbs (ankle) all participated fully and are expected to play against the Eagles. Hankerson and Paulsen are both starters, the other two are reserves.
Washington coach Mike Shanahan said that offensive lineman Maurice Hurt, who had knee surgery on May 30 and hasn’t played all season, took part in his first practice on Wednesday.
“Good first day,” Shanahan said.
Hurt spent all season on the NFL’s Physically Unable to Perform List. Washington has three weeks to evaluate Hurt before making a decision on his status. He could have returned to practice as soon as Week 6, but was not yet fully recovered. Hurt was a seventh-round draft pick out of Florida in 2011.
Shanahan did not have an update on defensive end Adam Carriker, who has also been on the PUP list. He tore a quadriceps tendon in Week 2 of the 2012 season and missed all of last year. Carriker, 29, has had three surgeries since, the most recent in July.
That’s a remarkable level of good health for Week 11. The Eagles, meanwhile, held four players out of practice - linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee), linebacker Jake Knott (hamstring), offensive tackle Jason Peters (quad/pectoral) and safety Earl Wolff (knee).
Three more were limited, including tight end Brent Celek (hip), cornerback Bradley Fletcher (pectoral) and quarterback Michael Vick (hamstring). Safety Patrick Chung (shoulder), linebacker Trent Cole (illness), wide receiver Riley Cooper (knee) and defensive end Cedric Thornton (knee).
