But receiver Antwaan Randle El, who did not practice Friday, still has a chance to play Sunday.
Randle El, suffering from a hamstring injury, will work out before the game. If it goes well, he could play Sunday.
Meanwhile, defensive end Phillip Daniels will play after missing the first two days of practice with a shoulder injury.
Washington will be replaced by veteran Randall Godfrey, whom the coaches like because of his physical nature. At least twice last week, he blew up the Lions' fullback, serving as a lead blocker, and plugged the hole. Chris Wilson would enter as a rush end on some passing downs, a job Washington also held.
If Randle El can't play, it's uncertain who would replace him though Keenan McCardell took his spot often in the second half against the Lions. James Thrash would return punts.
