49ers vs. Redskins Injury Report: Ray McDonald Still Sidelined

New, comments

Fooch's Note: I'm running out the door, I'll get a post up tonight or first thing tomorrow. Aldon Smith was named NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month for October.

The 49ers and Browns released their injury reports for Wednesday and the most notable name is that of Ray McDonald. The 49ers defensive end injured his hamstring against the Cleveland Browns this past Sunday and is apparently still bothered by the injury. He sat out practice today but there is no word yet on his availability this Sunday. If he cannot play Sunday, Ricky Jean Francois would get the start in his place and Demarcus Dobbs would get some backup rotational time.

Justin Smith also did not participate in practice, but he was simply given a veteran's preference day off. As the season moves on, I would not be surprised to see a few more of these veteran's days off mixed in. The team plays a physical enough brand of football that getting some days off will be good long term and keep players from getting a little too cranky from practice.

Redskins tight end Fred Davis was a DNP today, but from the sound of things, he will likely play on Sunday. He was in a boot on Monday but he is out of the boot at this point. London Fletcher and Trent Williams were limited in practice. Fletcher was questionable last week but played, so I suspect he'll be out there on Sunday. He is having quite the resurgence in Washington and he will be a guy to keep an eye on. Williams has been dealing with a high ankle sprain. I would be surprised if he played Sunday, but if he's on the practice field, you never know.
