The final injury report for Week 1 is in for the Washington Commanders, and it contains some bad news. Third-year safety Kam Curl is out for Sunday’s season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a thumb injury.
Curl, who injured his thumb in the second preseason game against the Chiefs, recently underwent surgery and is in a cast. However, Curl told the media Monday he was optimistic about playing in Week 1.
Unfortunately for Curl, he missed practice all week, and Washington is playing the long game with his injury. The Commanders aren’t going to risk anything with one of their best young players.
In Curl’s absence, Darrick Forrest and Percy Butler will each be heavily involved.
Outside of Curl, tight ends Logan Thomas and Cole Turner are questionable for Sunday’s game.
Wide receiver Cam Sims [concussion] should play Sunday. Tight end John Bates, defensive tackle Phidarian Mathis and guard Trai Turner were full participants and will play.
For the Jaguars, defensive tackle Folorunso Fatukasi was again limited and is questionable for Week 1.
Jacksonville left tackle Cam Robinson was a new addition to Friday’s final injury report with an ankle injury. He will play Sunday.
