Key Redskins starters active for London game vs. Bengals
LONDON (AP) — Key starters on the banged-up Washington Redskins are active for Sunday’s game in London versus the healthy Cincinnati Bengals.
Cornerback Josh Norman, tight end Jordan Reed, left tackle Trent Williams and wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Jamison Crowder all had been listed as questionable following Friday’s training session in London, but all will be available at Wembley Stadium. The only major injury loss for Washington is running back Matt Jones, who suffered a knee injury midweek is replaced in the lineup by undrafted rookie Robert Kelley.
The Bengals arrived in England with no major injuries. The only significant concern, left tackle Andrew Whitworth, came cleanly out of concussion protocol after leaving last Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.
With tight end Tyler Eifert expected to play a full role in the offense for the first time this season, backup C.J. Uzomah was declared inactive for the game.
Sunday’s full list of inactives:
QB Nate Sudfeld, WR Rashad Ross, RB Matt Jones, CB Dashaun Phillips, T Vinston Painter, G Arie Kouandjio, DT Matt Ioannidis.
WR Cody Core, CB Chykie Brown, QB Jeff Driskel, TE C.J. Uzomah, CB KeiVarae Russell, G Christian Westerman, DT DeShawn Williams.
