Quarterback Kirk Cousins was one of many Redskins starters to get the night off on Friday and one of the few who did make it to the field had to leave early with an injury.
Running back Matt Jones came down hard on his left shoulder on the second Washington possession of the night and went right to the sideline after the play to talk to members of the training staff. Jones then left the sideline for the locker room. The team announced he’s getting x-rays.
Jones is the leading returning rusher for the Redskins and is expected to hold down the No. 1 job with Alfred Morris now plying his trade in Dallas.
Chris Thompson and seventh-round pick Keith Marshall are the next two backs on the depth chart, which would almost certainly mean an addition to the group in the event Jones has to miss any serious time.
UPDATE 9:26 p.m. ET: The Redskins announced Jones has an AC sprain.
