Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, knee, shoulder) not only played in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers, but he played well with 97 rushing yards on 17 carries.

Footballguys view: Smith did well in a conservative game plan and did a lot of his damage on throws to Vernon Davis and Paul Richardson. He's a low ceiling/high floor play going against Dallas next week.

Washington Redskins WRs Jamison Crowder (ankle), Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) and Josh Doctson (heel) on Friday, Oct. 12, received questionable designations for the Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Crowder looks like the least likely to play, but with Alex Smith's play eroding, none are worth consideration. Jordan Reed could get more targets this week.

  Redskins | Adrian Peterson, Chris Thompson questionable     Fri Oct 12, 01:43 PM

Washington Redskins RBs Adrian Peterson (shoulder, ankle, knee) and Chris Thompson (ribs) are listed as questionable for Week 6, head coach Jay Gruden said Friday, Oct. 12, and likely will be game-time decisions.

Footballguys view: Washington could have to play Kapri Bibbs and Samaje Perine at running back this week in a tough matchup for backs against the Panthers. Their wide receiver group is also banged up, so it might be a long game for Alex Smith.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (shoulder, ankle, knee) was limited in practice for the second consecutive day on Thursday, Oct. 11.
