LANDOVER — Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder and running back Chris Thompson are out Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. 

The two playmakers were among the team’s inactives list, joining guard Shawn Lauvao (calf), safety Troy Apke (hamstring), defensive end Caleb Brantley, tackle Geron Christian and cornerback Adonis Alexander. Both players were hurt in Monday’s loss against the New Orleans Saints. 

Crowder missed practice this week with an ankle injury, while Thompson was limited with a rib and knee injury.

To replace the two, Maurice Harris will fill in for Crowder and Kapri Bibbs will take Thompson’s role as a third-down specialist. Running back Samaje Perine will also be active for this first time this season.

Wide receiver Josh Doctson, meanwhile, makes his return after missing the Saints game. Doctson had been nursing a heel injury, but had made enough progress to play. 

Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) will also be active, but it remains to be seen how much playing time the wideout receives. Richardson told reporters Friday he wouldn’t be sure how much he could do until he tested his knee in warmups on Sunday.
