Here is a look at who played how much against the Eagles on Sunday (snap counts via Pro Football Focus.
Offense: 58 snaps
Quarterback: Robert Griffin III 58
Offensive line: Trent Williams, Kory Lichtensteiger, Will Montgomery, Chris Chester, and Tyler Polumbus all played 58 snaps
Tight end: Logan Paulsen 56, Niles Paul 16, Chris Cooley 9
In his third game back with the Redskins Cooley again saw limited action despite Paulsen’s hip injury. Paulsen was targeted on for a pass once, on his 17-yard touchdown reception. Paul and Cooley were not targeted.
Wide receiver: Josh Morgan 40, Leonard Hankerson 37, Santana Moss 24, Pierre Garcon 23, Aldrick Robinson 9
WR/snap 2.3 Obviously Garçon’s workload was light due to his injury. He was in for nine pass plays and 14 runs. Moss, on the other hand, was in for 17 pass plays and just one run.
Running back: Alfred Morris 53, Darrel Young 17, Evan Royster 2
Morris’ 53 snaps tied for his heaviest workload since the season opener and his percentage of snaps (91.4%) was his highest of the season. Mike Shanahan said yesterday that Morris is feeling more comfortable in pass protection. That was the role of Evan Royster and therefore his two snaps represented a season low.
Defense: 80 snaps
Defensive line: Stephen Gowen 47, Barry Cofield 46, Jarvis Jenkins 37, Kedric Golston 31, Chris Baker 15
A lot of rotation here as they kept the line fresh to keep attacking Philly’s depleted offensive line.
Linebacker: Perry Riley 80, Ryan Kerrigan 71, London Fletcher 49, Rob Jackson 49, Lorenzo Alexander 43, Keenan Robinson 19, Chris Wilson 9
The headline here is that Kerrigan didn’t play every snap for the first time in his career. Fletcher missed a good portion of the game with his sprained ankle, leading to the heaviest workloads of the season for both Alexander and Robinson.
Defensive backs: DeAngelo Hall 76, Josh Wilson 76, Madieu Williams 72, Cedric Griffin 64, Brandon Meriweather 45, DeJon Gomes 34, Jordan Pugh, 9, D. J. Johnson 8
After starting the last six games at strong safety, Reed Doughty did not play on defense at all even though Meriweather, who bumped him from the starting lineup, was lost to injury in the third quarter. It looks like Gomes will get first shot at the job with Meriweather out.
