The Washington Redskins are expected to be without running back Chris Thompson (rib/knee) and wide receiver Jamison Crowder (ankle) for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Both were hurt in Monday’s loss to the New Orleans Saints and are listed as questionable against the Panthers.
Crowder went the entire week without practicing and a medical scooter was seen by his locker on Wednesday. Thompson, on the other hand, has been a limited participant in practice throughout the week.
If neither can play, that would be a huge loss for the Redskins since both playmakers have been reliable options for quarterback Alex Smith, particularly Thompson.
In addition to Thompson and Crowder, the Redskins listed wideout Paul Richardson, running back Adrian Peterson, wide receiver Josh Doctson, and linebacker Zach Vigil as questionable.
“A couple of these guys… I won’t know until Sunday at about 9, 10 o’clock, when they get out on the field,” coach Jay Gruden said Friday. “See if they can run and do some things. We have everything covered if they can’t go but there’s three or four of these guys on the list we have to wait and see on Sunday.”
