Darrel Young will play for Redskins
By John Keim
There were no surprises among the Washington Redskins' inactives, but the fact that fullback Darrel Young will be active is a good sign for the Redskins.
Quarterback Robert Griffin III was inactive for a second straight game, as expected. He warmed up before the game with quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur, focusing a lot on footwork in the pocket on a rainy, slick field. At times, Griffin had his back to the line, ran a couple steps back and turned around to make a throw. Other times he focused on keeping his feet and base while moving up or around in the pocket. And during warm-ups, Griffin was slapping high fives with players as they worked through drills.
Other inactives for Washington: safety Bacarri Rambo, corner Chase Minnifield, linebacker Brandon Jenkins, center J.D. Walton and guard Josh LeRibeus.
Young tweaked his hamstring in last week's loss to Atlanta, but will play Sunday -- he made a key block on a big run by Alfred Morris last week.
For Dallas, the inactives are receiver Dwayne Harris, who killed Washington in the return game in the first meeting, safety Jakar Hamilton, linebacker Sean Lee, defensive end Martez Wilson, linebacker Ernie Sims and tackle Darrion Weems.
