Snap counts: Fletcher back to playing every snap

Snap counts: Fletcher back to playing every snap
October 14, 2013, 1:30 pm

Here’s a look at who played how much against the Raiders (snap counts NFL Gamebook):

Offense 78 snaps

QB/O-line: Robert Griffin III, Trent Williams, Kory Lichtensteiger, Will Montgomery, Chris Chester, Tyler Polumbus all played 78

This group is now 363/363 for the season

Wide receivers: Pierre Garçon 72, Leonard Hankerson 52, Santana Moss 50, Josh Morgan 17, Aldrick Robinson 7

That comes to 198 snaps for the receivers, an unusually high number. Morgan’s snap count was a season low as he incorporated punt and kick return duties into his game.

Tight ends: Jordan Reed 55, Logan Paulsen 20, Fred Davis 18, Niles Paul 2

More receiver snaps meant fewer for the tight ends although Reed’s 55 snaps were by far his season high.

Running backs: Roy Helu Jr. 43, Alfred Morris 35, Darrel Young 19

The Redskins playing in catch up mode for much of the game led to more Helu, less Morris. Young’s workload remains remarkably consistent; he has played either 18 or 19 offensive snaps in each of the last four games.

Defense 54 snaps

Defensive line: Stephen Bowen 45, Barry Cofield 44, Kedric Golston 30, Chris Baker 15, Jarvis Jenkins 6

Jenkins apparently wasn’t quite ready to go almost two weeks after being reinstated from his four-game suspension. We’ll be tracking his snaps closely to see if he works his way back into the 35-plus snap count range any time soon.

Linebacker: Perry Riley 54, Ryan Kerrigan 53, London Fletcher 54, Brian Orakpo 49, Rob Jackson 12, Darryl Tapp 1

Jackson is also back from a four-game suspension and he made the most of his limited action as he intercepted a tipped pass. Unlike the last two games, there were no snaps for Nick Barnett in relief of Fletcher.

Defensive back: Brandon Meriweather 54, Josh Wilson 54, DeAngelo Hall 54, Reed Doughty 23, E. J. Biggers 20, David Amerson 17, Jose Gumbs 9

Gumbs saw his first career NFL action with his nine snaps on defense on top of 15 on special teams. Amerson’s game was cut short when he sustained a concussion on kickoff coverage.
