ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - The Washington Redskins will be missing both starting cornerbacks against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, with Chris Culliver joining DeAngelo Hall on the sideline.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden says Friday that Culliver, who missed practice all week, has “some cartilage issues” in his left knee, which was operated on in the past.

Hall will be sitting out a second game in a row with an injured right toe.

Will Blackmon is expected to start alongside Bashaud Breeland at cornerback against Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and Atlanta’s high-powered offense.

The Redskins also will be without tight end Jordan Reed, who has a concussion, and receiver DeSean Jackson, out since hurting his left hamstring in Week 1.

Linebacker Perry Riley Jr. is listed as questionable with a strained left calf.
