Quinton Dunbar: Moved to exempt list

Dunbar (personal) was placed on the commissioner's exempt list Monday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: An alleged incident in Miramar, Fla. in May perpetrated by Dunbar and Giants cornerback Deandre Baker resulted in four counts of armed robbery with a firearm for the former. Dunbar was granted permission to travel to Seattle for the start of training camp, but following Monday's move he won't be present at team facilities for the time being. The legal process may have to play out favorably for Dunbar to see the field in the Seahawks' season opener in Atlanta.

Quinton Dunbar: Allowed to attend camp

Dunbar had his motion to travel to Seattle's training camp granted by a Broward County judge Tuesday, Daniel Wallach of Wallach Legal LLC reports.

Analysis: General manager John Schneider said of Dunbar that he "would be welcome in camp." Dunbar's charges relating to an alleged involvement in an armed robbery still loom, but it looks as though the 27-year-old will at least be permitted to attend training camp with his teammates. As it stands, of course, the possibility of Dunbar being placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List ahead of Week 1 still can't be ruled out.

Quinton Dunbar: May not be available

Dunbar won't necessarily be present for the start of training camp, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Analysis: Dunbar's alleged involvement in an armed robbery has drawn headlines throughout the offseason, with the latest update revealing that his attorneys have withdrawn from the case and been replaced. A judge granted Dunbar permission to travel to the Seattle area for training camp, but it isn't clear if the cornerback actually will do so. It also isn't clear that camp will start July 28, as scheduled.

Quinton Dunbar: Permitted to practice

A court has granted Dunbar permission to travel to the Seattle area for training camp, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Traded from Washington to Seattle earlier this offseason, Dunbar was then arrested in May for his alleged involvement in an armed robbery. Giants cornerback Deandre Baker also was involved in the incident, and both players have pleaded not guilty. Dunbar should be able to practice with the Seahawks when training camp opens at the end of July.

As legal proceedings are still ongoing, more information on Dunbar's situation should be revealed shortly.

Quinton Dunbar: Surrenders to authorities

Dunbar turned himself over to Miramar (Fla.) authorities Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Dunbar, who was issued a warrant on four counts of armed robbery with a firearm, was allegedly part of an incident that took place late Wednesday night with Giants cornerback Deandre Baker. More information is expected following the legal proceedings.

Quinton Dunbar: Warrant for arrest issued

The Miramar (Fla.) Police Department issued an arrest warrant Thursday for Dunbar (hamstring), Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Dunbar has had a warrant for his arrest issued due to an incident that occurred in Miramar on Wednesday and involved counts of armed robbery and aggravated assault with a firearm. Deandre Baker, 2019 first-round pick of the Giants, has also had a warrant for his arrest issued due to his involvement in the incident. The Seahawks acquired Dunbar in exchange for a fifth-round pick in March via a trade with Washington.

Quinton Dunbar: Finds new home

Dunbar (hamstring) was traded to Seattle via Washington in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Dunbar made it well known this offseason that he had no intentions of playing in Washington next season, requesting to be released or traded in February. The Florida product got his wish, and he now appears in line to earn a starting role at cornerback opposite Shaquill Griffin in 2020. Despite battling health problems, Dunbar produced 37 tackles (31 solo), four interceptions and eight pass breakups through 11 games last season.

Quinton Dunbar: Time in Washington nearing end

Dunbar (hamstring) has informed Redskins management that he wishes to be released or traded, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: It was previously reported that Dunbar, who is heading into the final year of his contract, wouldn't participate in offseason workouts without a new contract. Talks have subsided with new management at the helm, leading Dunbar to put in his request for a new organization. The Florida product had been the best corner for the team the past two seasons, despite consistantly battling health problems, he collected six interceptions in 18 games. The ball is in Washington's court whether they will honor Dunbar's request, or keep him on the roster for the final year of his contract in 2020.

Quinton Dunbar: Could hold out for new deal

Dunbar (hamstring) doesn't intend to participate in offseason workouts unless he gets a new contract, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Analysis: Dunbar is entering the final season of a three-year, $10.5 million extension, coming off a 2019 campaign in which he missed five games, including the final three weeks of the season with a hamstring injury. Medical issues have been a consistent theme during his NFL career, but he was easily Washington's best cornerback the past two seasons, notching 17 pass defenses and six interceptions in 18 games. Dunbar is one of a few players who publicly expressed frustration with Washington's old training staff, so he may be more amenable to a contract extension now that the team brought in new medical personnel.

Quinton Dunbar: Hits IR

Dunbar (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan Washington reports.

Analysis: Dunbar suffered the injury in Week 14, and it will cost him the rest of the season. He finishes the year with 37 tackles (31 solo), four interceptions and eight pass breakups over 11 games.

Quinton Dunbar: Ruled out Sunday

Dunbar (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Dunbar was downgraded to non-participation at Thursday's practice and will be unable to play this weekend. Danny Johnson and Aaron Colvin should see increased work Sunday since Fabian Moreau (hamstring) is doubtful.

December 20, 2019 9:46 AM EST

Quinton Dunbar: Sidelined Thursday

Dunbar (hamstring) did not practice Thursday.

Analysis: Dunbar practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, so Thursday's lack of participation represents a step in the wrong direction. With Fabian Moreau (hamstring) also not practicing, Washington could rely on Danny Johnson to handle increased reps at cornerback during Sunday's tilt against the Giants.

December 19, 2019 1:29 PM EST

Quinton Dunbar: Can't go against Eagles

Dunbar (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Analysis: Dunbar left Week 14's loss to the Packers early, and the lingering effects will keep him out of this divisional clash. While Josh Norman has been benched lately, the Redskins may need to turn to Norman to fill the void left by Dunbar's absence.

December 15, 2019 8:50 AM EST

Quinton Dunbar: Questionable for Sunday

Dunbar (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Eagles.

Analysis: Dunbar suffered the injury during last Sunday's loss to the Packers and didn't practice this week, so it's somewhat surprising he still has a chance to suit up Week 15. Jimmy Moreland and Danny Johnson could see increased reps this weekend since Fabian Moreau (hamstring) and Josh Norman (illness) are also questionable.

December 13, 2019 1:34 PM EST

Quinton Dunbar: Exits game Sunday

Dunbar (hamstring) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Green Bay.

Analysis: Dunbar suffered the injury in the second quarter, but it's unclear as to the severity. With both he and Fabian Moreau dealing with hamstring injuries, Josh Norman and Jimmy Moreland are in line to see an uptick in snaps as long as their sidelined.

December 8, 2019 11:05 AM EST

Quinton Dunbar: Picks off fourth pass of season

Dunbar made four tackles (three solo) and an interception in Sunday's 19-16 win over Detroit.

Analysis: It was Dunbar's first interception since Week 6 against Miami. The Florida product needs just eight tackles to surpass the career high 39 he set last season.

November 26, 2019 5:06 PM EST

Quinton Dunbar: Dunks on Dolphins

Dunbar finished with six tackles (five solo) and an interception in Sunday's 17-16 win over Miami.

Analysis: Dunbar's interception, midway through the second quarter, halted a Miami drive at the Redskins' 31-year-line and prevented the hosts from cutting into a 7-0 lead at the time. It was his third interception of 2019. The six tackles represented a season-high for Dunbar who continues to see a regular workload in the Washington secondary.

Quinton Dunbar: Grabs two interceptions

Dunbar had three solo tackles and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Rookie QB Daniel Jones had only eight incompletions Sunday, but Dunbar managed to corral two of them to grab his first picks of the season. The performance tied the 27-year-old season-high for interceptions in one game, a record he initially set in 2018. Dunbar missed the previous two games with a knee issue but played 65 of 78 defense snaps Sunday.

September 30, 2019 1:00 PM EST

Quinton Dunbar: Full practice Thursday

Dunbar (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Dunbar sat out Monday's loss to the Bears due to a knee injury, and he now appears back to full health. Barring any setbacks, Dunbar is on track for his usual starting role in Washington's secondary Week 4.
