The Redskins had both Jamison Crowder and Chris Thompson on the practice field for the second Thursday in a row, a positive sign that Washington could get back two of its offensive playmakers for Monday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Crowder, who had missed seven games with an ankle injury, looked quick as he passed passes on individual practice sessions. Thompson seemed to move without pain as he recovered after two separate rib injuries that kept him out of six games. Coach Jay Gruden said Crowder is officially restricted during training.
Crowder said he was confident that he could overcome the hump in the next few days. Pain was the problem, especially when cutting and planting, but it is now more bearable.
"Jamison did a lot more today, which was positive," Gruden said. "He's a bit in pain, but he's working on it. Chris Thompson, if you see him running, there is no problem. He looks fast, he looks fast. I think he will be fine. We just have to make sure we protect it. "
Adrian Peterson (shoulder), Cornerback Quinton Dunbar (tibia), Morgan Moses (ankle), defender Matt Ioannidis (tibia) and linebacker Zach Brown (knee / shin) did not run on Thursday.
The guard Tony Bergstrom (knee), the tight close Jordan Reed (back) and the wide receiver Trey Quinn (ankle) were limited.
"Of course, many of these guys will have to make progress over the next few days," Gruden said. "Hopefully we'll see that with Moses and Matt and Zach Brown."
As the game will take place on Monday, the normal training schedule will be postponed by one day. Peterson usually takes this practice off, but he still has a shoulder injury, which has been a problem since the beginning of October.
The team confirmed that linebacker Cassanova McKinzy was officially placed in the injured reserve on Tuesday with a torn pectoral muscle.
