Let’s begin with the standard disclaimer: this is the public/media version of the Redskins’ depth chart, not the coaches’ version. But we should also note that it’s not complete fiction, either. If it were, the Redskins wouldn’t bother making changes to it.
So …on to the tweaks. And, as we mentioned up top, they are very minor.
On defense, Jason Hatcher has been added as the starting right end (even though he's not expected to play until next week). Last week, Hatcher was on the physically unable to perform list and, thus, not listed. The move pushed Jenkins to backup right end.
Geathers, meantime, is now listed as second string left end behind Baker. Last week, Geathers was third string behind Golston, who is now listed as the third string right end.
At ‘Jack’ linebacker, Adam Hayward has moved ahead of Darryl Sharpton, who is sidelined with a high ankle sprain.
On special teams, Roberts is now listed as the primary kickoff and punt returner. Last week, he was only on kickoff duty.
