Redskins short-handed on offense against Cowboys
Washington’s offense is without a trio of key playmakers for Sunday’s game against visiting Dallas.
Receivers Paul Richardson (shoulder and knee injuries) and Jamison Crowder (ankle) are inactive as well as third-down back Chris Thompson (rib and knee).
They are three of QB Alex Smith’s top four targets so far this season, with Thompson leading the Redskins with 26 catches so far. Richardson ranks third on the team with 16, and Crowder is next with 13.
The Redskins are also without starting cornerback Quinton Dunbar, who has a shin injury.
The San Francisco 49ers will be short-handed at cornerback against the Los Angeles Rams. Richard Sherman is inactive because of a calf injury. Backup cornerback Jimmie Ward is also out with an injured hamstring.
