Coach Jay Gruden said they will consider taking DeAngelo Hall off the PUP list Wednesday or next week. Gruden said he's "pretty darn close" to 100 percent but they want to make sure.

Losing Jonathan Allen will hurt the Redskins. The rookie has started in nickel and helps collapse the pocket. Second-year Anthony Lanier replaces him. Coach Jay Gruden said Allen "plays like a vet."

Safety D.J. Swearinger said he can't commit unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. But he also said he didn't like seeing Pierre Garcon "celebrate" trucking Montae Nicholson -- as Nicholson lay hurt on the ground. "I have to keep my cool, but I'll stand up for my guy anytime," Swearinger said.

Left tackle Trent Williams said he was "real close" to not playing with his injured knee. But a conversation he had with coach Jay Gruden before the weekend resonated. "He asked me if there was anything I could do to push through and that he would need me," Williams said. "I said, say no more I'll be out there."

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Corner Bashaud Breeland said he felt better about his knee after getting examined. He'll undergo an MRI Monday to determine the extent of his sprained MCL. Breeland missed a couple weeks in camp with a sprained MCL two years ago. "I'm not too scared about it," Breeland said. "But when it happened I was. It scared me, but the news that I got [about the injury] got me back right."

Redskins linebacker Preston Smith understands the aesthetics of the 26-24 win over San Francisco. But, he said, "an ugly win is better than a pretty loss."

Jonathan Allen (foot) and Bashaud Breeland (knee/MCL) will undergo MRIs Monday to determine the extent of their injuries, coach Jay Gruden said.

The Redskins have a habit of making games closer than they need to be and that was the case once again. They blew a 17-0 lead but still improved to 4-2 by hanging on vs. San Francisco. Quarterback Kirk Cousins led two scoring drives in the fourth quarter, picking up a woeful run game with his arm. But the defense exits this win facing real questions after allowing rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard to move the ball at will.
