The Eagles will be facing a nicked-up Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins this Sunday at Fed-Ex Field.

“Just a low ankle sprain. I’ll be all right,” Haskins said at his weekly news conferenc.

Haskins hurt his ankle just before halftime of Sunday’s 20-15 loss to the Green Bay Packers, when pass rusher Preston Smith fell on his legs, but he did not come out of the game. Haskins and interim coach Bill Callahan both said they did not consider having him leave the game, even though he was walking with a considerable limp and his mobility was greatly reduced.

Asked whether he thought he would be limited at all against the Eagles, Haskins answered: “I hope not.”

Later, he was on the practice field, taking his regular snaps as the No. 1 quarterback, and seemed to be moving fine. Callahan said he had Haskins moving out of the pocket a lot in Wednesday’s practice and the rookie “looked great.”

“There’s nothing holding him back,” Callahan said.

Haskins and the rest of Washington’s offense will be without running back Derrius Guice, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday after suffering a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee against Green Bay, and linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, who hurt his calf in the Packers game. Wide receiver Paul Richardson Jr., who missed the past two games with a hamstring injury, was at practice.

Cornerback Quinton Dunbar (hamstring) did not practice. Richardson, linebacker Ryan Anderson (shoulder), cornerback Fabian Moreau (hamstring), tackle Morgan Moses (toe), tackle Donald Penn (knee/back), wide receiver Trey Quinn (concussion) and guard Brandon Scherff (elbow/shoulder) were all limited.
