Redskins depth chart: Chris Baker busts a move

What caught our eye in the Redskins Week 5 depth chart involve Chris Baker, Jamison Crowder and the offensive line.

The Washington Redskins released their unofficial Week 5 depth chart Tuesday. Here's what stands out...

  • Chris Baker now is listed as the starting left defensive end ahead of Stephen Paea. As a reminder, Pro Football Focus rated Baker Washington's top defensive lineman after three games and then he went out registered two sacks against the Eagles.

  • Spencer Long moves into the left guard slot. He replaced Shawn Lauvao, who recently underwent season-ending ankle surgery. "He played great. He really did," Redskns coach Jay Gruden said of the second-year lineman on Monday. "I was happy about the way Spencer played. He competed. He was great in the passing game. He did some good things in the running game." Rookie Arie Kouandjio remains Long's primary backup.

  • Jamison Crowder comes up on the third team, but don't fret. Gruden stated Monday that the rookie is the team's primary slot receiver. The depth chart shows the offense in basic two receiver sets with Ryan Grant and Andre Roberts the primary backups to Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson.

  • Just stating facts here, but Colt McCoy remains the backup behind starting QB Kirk Cousins.
