Working as nickelback

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-03

St-Juste has mostly played nickel corner this summer, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

St-Juste mostly played the slot for the first four weeks of last season before shifting outside full-time and ultimately starting each of his 12 games. He'll now get a longer look as one of the largest slot corners (6-3, 200) in the league, as Washington prefers to keep Kendall Fuller and first-round pick Emmanuel Forbes on the perimeter even though Fuller has more slot experience than St-Juste. From an IDP standpoint, the ideal scenario is for a cornerback to play a perimeter spot in the base defense and slot in the nickel -- something that could happen for St-Juste this year if Fuller/Forbes misses time, though the Commanders might also just put him outside and use 5-foot-9 Danny Johnson in the slot. Either way, St-Juste's production to date doesn't hint at much IDP value, with 21 regular-season games (15 starts, 973 snaps) yielding 68 tackles, 10 pass defenses, two sacks and one forced fumble.

Returns to practice

St-Juste (ankle) was spotted participating in 7-on-7 drills Tuesday, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports.

St-Juste, who was placed on injured reserve after suffering an ankle injury in Week 16 of the 2022 NFL season, has returned to Washington's OTAs and is fully healthy again. The young defensive back started 12 games for the Commanders last season, racking up 41 tackles, seven pass deflections and one forced fumble.

Placed on IR

Washington placed St-Juste (ankle) on injured reserve Friday.

St-Juste was already ruled out for Week 18 due to an ankle injury, so his move to IR was simply transactional. Washington also sent Saahdiq Charles (concussion) to IR and signed Alex Akingbulu and Benning Potoa'e to the active roster from the practice squad. St-Juste will end the 2022 campaign with 42 tackles, seven pass defenses, two sacks and a forced fumble across 12 appearances.

Ruled out for Week 18

St-Juste (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 18 versus the Cowboys, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

St-Juste will miss a second consecutive contest to end the season while he nurses an ankle injury Sunday. The cornerback will finish the 2022 campaign with 42 tackles, including two sacks, while deflecting seven passes and forcing a fumble over 12 games. With St-Juste unavailable against Dallas, Rachad Wildgoose will likely step into a more significant role for a second straight week.

Won't play Sunday

St-Juste (ankle) is inactive Sunday against the Browns.

St-Juste suffered the injury Week 16 against the 49ers and is still not healed enough to return to the field. In his absence, Rachad Wildgoose will likely see an uptick in opportunities.

Status in question for Sunday

St-Juste (ankle) is questionable to play in Week 17 against the Browns, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

St-Juste went down with an ankle injury in Week 16 versus the 49ers, and the issue has continued to plague him this week in practice. If the cornerback is unable to play Sunday, Rachad Wildgoose could step into a more significant role in the secondary against Cleveland.
