No matter who Ron Rivera wants to blame, the Washington Commanders are struggling in a lot of different ways this season, and injury woes aren't going to make things any easier.

William Jackson III will not travel with the team for Thursday Night Football against the Chicago Bears.

Jackson's not a make-or-break type player, but he has started four games in 2022 after making 12 starts in his first season with Washington in 2021. The Commanders also allowed a season-high 328 passing yards in Week 3, when Jackson was sidelined.

Rachad Wildgoose has been the one to replace Jackson so far this season, and the 2021 sixth-round pick has allowed 4 completions and 31 yards on five targets thrown his way this season.

The Chicago Bears aren't a huge threat to shred anyone through the air, but facing a depleted secondary will certainly make things easier on Justin Fields and company.

FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds have Washington as very slight 1-point underdogs on the road on Thursday.
