Here’s a look at who played how much against the Bears (via www.profootballfocus.com):

Offense 76 snaps

QB/O-line: Robert Griffin III, Trent Williams, Kory Lichtensteiger, Will Montgomery, Chris Chester, Tyler Polumbus all played 76

This group is now 439/439 for the season

Wide receivers: Pierre Garçon 64, Leonard Hankerson 48, Josh Morgan 27, Santana Moss 17, Aldrick Robinson 12

That is a season low for Moss and less than half of his usual workload. TE Jordan Reed played in the slot quite a bit, displacing Moss.

Tight ends: Logan Paulsen 59, Jordan Reed 40, Niles Paul 6

The counts make it look like there were a lot of two-TE sets but, as noted above, many were two TE in name only as Reed was either a slot receiver or, as he was when he caught his touchdown pass, split out wide.

Running backs: Alfred Morris 41, Roy Helu Jr. 35, Darrel Young 31

That’s a fairly even split for Morris and Helu and considering that the game was close the whole way; it could mark a shift in the way they are used. Young had played no more than 19 snaps in any game before this one.

Defense 55 snaps

Defensive line: Stephen Bowen 45, Barry Cofield 40, Kedric Golston 30, Jarvis Jenkins 16, Chris Baker 13

Jenkins is slowly working his way back into action following his suspension; he worked six snaps last week.

Linebacker: Perry Riley 55, London Fletcher 55, Ryan Kerrigan 53, Brian Orakpo 46, Rob Jackson 13, Darryl Tapp 2, Nick Barnett 1

This is very similar to last week. With Brandon Jenkins still inactive (did not appear to be health related on Sunday) it appears that talk of having 4 outside linebackers on the field at once on a semi-regular basis is dead for the time being.

Defensive back: Brandon Meriweather 55, Josh Wilson 55, DeAngelo Hall 55, David Amerson 32,Reed Doughty 23, E. J. Biggers 16

It remains to be seen how the playing time will be distributed if Meriweather is suspended or if Doughty missed any time due to his concussion.
