Redskins Injury Report: Allen, Dunbar questionable vs. Bears


The Washington Redskins announced three players are out and a pair of important defenders are questionable for Monday night's game against the Chicago Bears.

The Redskins will be without tight end Jordan Reed (concussion), linebacker Cassanova McKinzy (hip), and quarterback Colt McCoy (fibula), who has yet to see action since breaking his leg the last time the Skins played on Monday Night Football in Dec. 2018.
Defensive lineman Jonathan Allen (knee) is questionable, but he was a full participant in Saturday's practice after missing sometime earlier in the week and may return to action after missing Washington's Week 2 game vs. the Dallas Cowboys. However, defensive back Quinton Dunbar (knee) did not practice during the week and, while being listed as questionable, seems unlikely to feature.

If Moreau is back, he’ll be outside to replace Dunbar if Dunny can’t go. Moreland would stay inside.Noah Spence is coming along slowly getting introduced to the defense. He’ll only go if McKinzy can’t.

The Redskins injury report released over the weekend listed cornerback Fabian Moreau (ankle), Morgan Moses (knee), safety Montae Nicholson (foot), and wide receiver Robert Davis (knee) after they each missed some practice time, but all are expected to be active vs. the Bears.

The Redskins secondary will already be without corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who was placed on Injured Reserve Wednesday after sustaining a leg injury against Dallas. Outside linebacker Noah Spence was singed to replace him on the 53-man roster.

Chicago has declared defensive tackle Bilal Nichols (hand) as out and listed tight end Trey Burton (groin), safety Eddie Jackson (shoulder), offensive tackle Kyle Long (hip), and kicker Eddy Piñeiro (oblique/knee) as questionable.

Piñeiro, who kicked a game-winning 53-yard field goal for the Bears in Week 2, is expected to play after injuring himself during the week in the weight room. If he is unable to kick, Chicago may turn to punter Pat O'Donnell, head coach Matt Nagy said.
