Defensive end Jason Taylor was officially listed as questionable when the Washington Redskins released their injury report for Thursday night’s season opener against the New York Giants.
Taylor, who returned to practice on a limited basis on Tuesday, had his playing status categorized as a “game-time decision” by coach Jim Zorn following practice. If he does play, it doesn’t appear that Taylor will be 100 percent against the Giants. Zorn eluded that Taylor would be part of a rotation with Demetric Evans, Erasmus James and Chris Wilson. Evans, who played in all 16 games last season with one start, would likely draw the start if Taylor is deactivated for the game, according to redskins.com.
Washington rookie WR Malcom Kelly (knee) is listed as out for the game, while S Kareem Moore (hamstring) is doubtful. CB Shawn Springs (calf), S LaRon Landry (hamstring), WR Antwaan Randle El (hand) and LB Khary Campbell (thigh) are all listed as probable.
The Giants injuries are as follow: Out — LB Jonathan Goff (back), CB Terrell Thomas (hamstring) and K Lawrence Tynes (left knee). Questionable — WR Domenik Hixon (back).
