Jason Taylor active vs. Giants

Washington Redskins Jason Taylor is active for Thursday night’s season opener against the New York Giants after being limited in practice this week due to a sprained knee. Taylor, who was officially listed as questionable, was considered a game-time decision by Redskins coach Jim Zorn.

Here are the inactives for tonight’s game:

Washington Redskins: QB Colt Brennan (3rd QB), WR Malcolm Kelly, CB Shawn Springs, DB Kareem Moore, LB Alfred Fincher, T Chad Rinehart, TE Fred Davis, DE Rob Jackson.

Analysis: Taylor’s presence is good news for the value of the Redskins defense. WR Antwaan Randle El is active and will start, but he’s not a recommended fantasy option.

N.Y. Giants: K Lawrence Tynes, RB Reuben Droughns, CB Terrell Thomas, CB Sam Madison, LB Jonathan Goff, T Adam Koats, DE Dave Tollefson, WR Mario Manningham.

Analysis: K John Carney will handle field-goal duties with Tynes out, but he has little fantasy value.
