The season is still young, but the Washington Redskins are already facing a mini injury crisis ahead of their home opener vs. the Dallas Cowboys.

Tight end Jordan Reed will miss his second-straight game due to a concussion he sustained during Week 3 of the preseason, head coach Jay Gruden announced Friday.

Defensive lineman Jonathan Allen will be out due to a knee injury sustained during the Skins loss in Philadelphia.

Gruden confirmed earlier reports that defensive tackle Caleb Brantley will miss the game against Dallas due to an ankle injury. Brantley was then placed on Injured Reserve.

Cornerback Quinton Dunbar, who did not practice Thursday or Friday, is listed as questionable with a knee injury. If Dunbar is unable to play, the Skins may use Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie as an outside corner.

The Redskins listed defensive back Fabian Moreau (ankle) as doubtful.

Safety Montae Nicholson (foot), who did not practice Wednesday, practiced Friday and is expected to play.

The Redskins head coach announced the signing of practice squad wide receiver Robert Davis and cornerback Aaron Colvin to the 53-man roster. The Redskins also signed defensive back Deion Harris to the practice squad.

Running back Derrius Guice, who will miss several weeks after undergoing knee surgery Thursday, was placed on Injured Reserve Friday. This will mean Guice will be out at least eight weeks.

Wide receiver Tavon Austin (concussion) and linebacker Luke Gifford (ankle) are out for Cowboys and represent the only players on the report for Dallas. 

Gruden announced quarterback Colt McCoy is also not available due to an injury he sustained in Dec. 2018.
