A little late with this, here are is a look at the snap counts for the game against the Bengals. The numbers are provided by the NFL.
Total offensive snaps: 76
Quarterback: Robert Griffin III 76
Offensive line: Chris Chester, Will Montgomery, Kory Lichtensteiger, Tyler Polumbus played all 76 snaps; Trent Williams 14, Jordan Black 62
Williams was injured on the third offensive play so he gave it a go for 11 plays after that. You have to think that bodes well for him being able to play this week but you can never tell. Brian Orakpo played a dozen snaps or so after his season-ending pectoral injury.
Wide receiver: Leonard Hankerson 59, Josh Morgan 57, Santana Moss 40, Dezmon Briscoe 15, Aldrick Robinson 15
Average wide receivers in per snap: 2.5 The number that jumps out is Robinson’s. He went from playing 60 snaps against the Saints to just 15 this week. Like a lot of young receivers he will have his ups and downs this year.
Tight end: Fred Davis 73, Niles Paul 12, Logan Paulsen 5
A bit of a change here in that Paul’s snaps are down from 20 last week. This is probably due to the team playing in catch-up mode for much of the game.
Running back: Alfred Morris 37, Evan Royster 19, Roy Helu Jr. 19; Fullback Darrel Young 11
The relatively high workloads for Royster and, especially, Helu were due in part to the Redskins spending so much of the game behind in the score. Young has played 19, 11, and 11 snaps in the Redskins’ three games.
Total defensive snaps: 60
Defensive line: Stephen Bowen 53, Jarvis Jenkins 40, Barry Cofield 37, Kedric Golston 16, Chris Baker 10
Baker’s workload was about the same as Chris Neild had as Cofield’s primary backup last year. Jenkins saw the first extended action of his NFL career.
Linebacker: Perry Rile, London Fletcher, Ryan Kerrigan played all 60 snaps; Rob Jackson 32, Markus White 15, Chris Wilson 10, Lorenzo Alexander 1, Keenan Robinson 1
The headline here is that White, seeing the first regular-season action of his career on defense, played more than the veteran Wilson. It will be interesting to see if that continues. In non-headline news, Kerrigan played every snap.
Defensive backs: DeJon Gomes 59, Madieu Williams 59, Josh Wilson 59, DeAngelo Hall 59, Richard Crawford 24, Crezdon Butler 2, Cedric Griffin 2, Reed Doughty 1
Griffin suffered a hamstring injury in the early going, pressing the rookie Crawford into action as the third CB.
