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

Offense 72 snaps

QB/O-line: Robert Griffin III, Trent Williams, Kory Lichtensteiger, Will Montgomery, Chris Chester, Tyler Polumbus all played 72

The offensive line is now 886/886 for the season.

[Related: Giants focused on stopping Morris]

Wide receivers: Pierre Garçon 63, Josh Morgan 41, Aldrick Robinson 35, Santana Moss 33, Lance Lewis 2, Nick Williams 2

Robinson’s workload has increased since Leonard Hankerson went out for the season with a knee injury. He played no more than 25 snaps in any of the first nine games and as few as five. In the last three games he has averaged 38 snaps

Tight ends: Logan Paulsen 61, Fred Davis 44

Not surprisingly with only two TE’s active due to injuries, Davis played the most snaps he has since Week 1.

Running backs: Alfred Morris 37, Roy Helu Jr. 35, Evan Royster 5

Usually when Helu and Morris have a fairly equal workload it means that the Redskins fell behind and are forced to throw a lot. That was not the case here. Not sure what to make of it but it bears watching.

Defense 54 snaps

Defensive line: Barry Cofield 42, Jarvis Jenkins 29, Chris Baker 30, Kedric Golston 21, Chris Neild 7

With Stephen Bowen out, Jarvis Jenkins’ snaps did not go up very much. He played second second-fewest snaps since they finished working him back into the lineup after his four-game suspension to open the season.

Linebacker: Ryan Kerrigan 54, Perry Riley 54, Brian Orakpo 51, London Fletcher 41, Rob Jackson 8

Fletcher’s sprained ankle kept him out of a lot of plays; this was by far the fewest snaps he’s played this season. Oddly, backup Nick Barnett did not play any defensive snaps in his place.

Defensive back: Brandon Meriweather 53, Josh Wilson 53, DeAngelo Hall 50, Bacarri Rambo 40, David Amerson 32, E. J. Biggers 15, Reed Doughty 13, Trenton Robinson 1

Doughty went out early with a concussion, his second of the season. You have to wonder if Rambo will continue to get snaps at free safety.
