ASHBURN – Washington Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz has suffered a right shoulder injury and will likely be limited from practice on Monday.
The commander asked the NFL to file a predicted injury report when Washington played on “Thursday Night Football” this week, but only light practice. Wentz was one of 10 players listed in the report ahead of Thursday’s game against the Chicago Bears.
Wentz threw a season-high of 359 yards, but threw a game-winning interception after a 21-17 loss to the Titans on Sunday. Manager Ron Rivera did not ask about the quarterback’s health as it was not made public before the report was released on Monday.
In addition to Wentz, wide receiver Dyami Brown (groin), cornerback Christian Holmes (hamstring), linebacker David Mayo (hamstring) and tight-end Logan Thomas (calf) are on the limited list. Wide receiver Jahan Dotson (hamstring), safety Percy Butler (quad), tackle Sam Cosmi (thumb) and running back Jonathan Williams (knee) would not have practiced.
The only injured player listed as a full participant is cornerback William Jackson III, who suffered a back injury.
Jackson, one of the team’s highest-paid players, sat on the bench against the Titans and told reporters that his back was a problem preventing him from playing at high levels. However, Rivera did not mention an injury as a reason why the cornerback was chosen.
“We pulled him out and we’re going to leave it as is,” Rivera said.
