Redskins’ offense will be without Brandon Scherff, Vernon Davis, Jordan Reed against Patriots

The Washington Redskins’ offense will be missing major pieces for a second consecutive week as the team limps into a showdown with the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.

Pro Bowl guard Brandon Scherff ankle will miss his second consecutive game, while tight ends Vernon Davis and Jordan Reed both remain in the league-mandated concussion protocol and will not play against the Patriots. Rookie Wes Martin will make his second consecutive start at right guard after making his NFL debut in last week’s loss to the New York Giants. It was the first time he was on the right side of the line since he played right tackle in high school.

“It was a good learning experience,” Martin said. “Assignments and techniques is really the main focus. If you do those things right, then everything else will just kind of fall together.”

Redskins name Colt McCoy the starter at quarterback against New England

Quarterback Case Keenum, who started the first four games, is questionable with a foot injury, and will not start in any case. Coach Jay Gruden named Colt McCoy the starter on Friday and declined to say whether Keenum would be the backup if healthy.

Center Chase Roullier knee and wide receiver Terry McLaurin hamstring are both questionable after being limited in practice all week. Neither played last week, and Gruden called McLaurin a game-day decision after not having him go full speed in Friday’s practice.

“Questionable is a great word for him right now,” Gruden said about McLaurin, a productive rookie who still leads Washington in receiving yards and touchdowns despite missing a week. “It is probably – with him.”

The Redskins are on the verge of a lost season. So what do they do with Dwayne Haskins?

Cornerback Josh Norman knee is listed as questionable but was a full participant in Friday’s session. Linebacker Josh Harvey-Clemons hamstring is out after not practicing all week.

For New England, running back Rex Burkhead foot, safety Patrick Chung heel, safety Nate Ebner groin, wide receiver Julian Edelman chest and linebacker Dont’a Hightower shoulder were all listed as questionable.

Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon knee and defensive end Michael Bennett shoulder did not receive an injury designation after being full participants Friday.
