RB Mathews, WR Matthews Questionable

During Friday morning's press conference, head coach Doug Pederson gave injury updates on running back Ryan Mathews (knee), wide receiver Jordan Matthews (ankle), wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham (abdomen) and tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai (knee) ahead of this weekend's game against Washington.

"DGB is going to be listed going into this game as questionable," Pederson said. "Obviously, Big V will be out this game. Ryan Mathews has been a full participant this week in practice. Today we're just going to back him down just a touch so we can keep him ready to go for Sunday, so he'll be listed as questionable. And then Jordan Matthews (will be listed as) questionable with his injury as well with that ankle. But everybody else is ready to go."

Earlier this week, Mathews and Matthews returned to practice after both missed last weekend's game against the Bengals. While those two offensive pieces look to return, Green-Beckham and Vaitai were held from practice due to their injuries on Wednesday and Thursday. Vaitai injured his knee during the Seattle game and has not played since, while Green-Beckham was hurt in last Sunday's matchup.

For Washington, its injury report was much more extensive with 15 players listed.

Two of the team's starting offensive linemen, Shawn Lauvao (groin) and Spencer Long (concussion/stinger), did not practice on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, while another starter in Brandon Scherff (ankle) was limited two days. Long was officially ruled out for the game. Lauvao and Scherff are both questionable. Tight end Jordan Reed (shoulder) was a limited participant on Wednesday and Thursday and is questionable for Sunday.

On the defensive side of the ball, notable names on the injury report include defensive end Chris Baker (ankle) and safety Will Blackmon (concussion/thumb), both of whom did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday. Baker was limited on Friday and is questionable, but Blackmon will not play this weekend. Defensive end Ricky Jean Francois (foot/knee) and linebacker Will Compton (hip) are also listed as questionable, while cornerback Bashaud Breeland (ankle) is expected to play.
