After weeks of watching a nervous nervousness in the leg of cornerback Quinton Dunbar, the Redskins decided to put him on the injured list on Wednesday, putting an end to a promising season.
"When you talk about nerves, it worries me a bit," said coach Jay Gruden about Dunbar, adding that the team's doctors "had not yet been able to set a schedule "for his recovery.
To further add to the team's problems, Washington also placed rookie Trey Quinn's receiver on the injured list after Quinn injured his ankle when he suffered a serious injury in the first match of the season. season against the Arizona Cardinals. Quinn, who shone during the pre-season and two games in November, aggravated his foot injury during Thanksgiving Day at the Dallas Cowboys and worsened progressively during training this week. last.
"We knew the healing process would be slow," said Gruden.
Finally, the team thought it would be better for Quinn if he did not train before the rest of the season.
To replace Dunbar, Quinn and guard Jonathan Cooper (who was also lost for the year with a torn bicep tendon in Monday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles), the Redskins' signed center, Demetrius Rhaney, guard Zac Kerin and defenseman Marcus Smith, Eagles' first choice in 2014.
Cooper was taken off the street on Nov. 5 after first-year guards Shawn Lauvao and Brandon Scherff were injured at the end of the season and immediately started four games.
The decision to put Dunbar in IR changed the cornerback's position in front of Josh Norman for a rookie rotation in Greg Stroman, Danny Johnson and Adonis Alexander.
Several Redskins have not trained on Wednesday, including center Chase Roullier, knee injury, and Gruden said "hobbling" and goalkeeper Tony Bergstrom, who will miss at least two weeks in the ankle. Adrian Peterson, who often misses the midweek workouts, is injured in the shoulder. Linebacker Ryan Anderson (hamstring), defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis (shin) and security player Montae Nicholson (sick) were also absent.
The limited forwards were Morgan Moses (knee) and Trent Williams (wrist and thumb), as well as Norman (hamstring) and Fabian Moreau (knee) semi-turns.
The Redskins have not put quarterback Colt McCoy on the injured list, as they have a slight hope that his fractured fibula will heal enough for him to return before the end of the season.
