Redskins Insider: December 27, 2009 - January 2, 2010

What lies ahead for Landry after a tough season?

The worst season of safety LaRon Landry's three-year career has ended. Landry did not practice this week after he suffered what Coach Jim Zorn has described as a "mild concussion." Landry, who will miss the first game of his NFL career, is among the players who will not make the...

Is this game the end of the line for Joe Bugel?

So much figures to change for the Redskins after their final game of the season Sunday in San Diego, with familiar faces departing. One coach whose future is uncertain, Barry Svrluga writes, is Joe Bugel; at 69 and after a challenging year of cobbling together an offensive line, will the...

For Randy Thomas, 'R' word isn't a possibility

Redskins guard Randy Thomas played in only two games in his 11th season in the NFL. Since he went down with a torn triceps in the Sept. 20 game against the St. Louis Rams, Thomas has spent time rehabbing and pondering his future - but he has not, he said,...

Landry, Thomas are out; Edwin Williams will start

Neither wide receiver Devin Thomas nor safety LaRon Landry will make the trip to San Diego for Sunday's season finale against the Chargers, Redskins Coach Jim Zorn said. Rookie Edwin Williams will start at right guard for the injured Mike Williams, according to Zorn. Thomas missed last week's game against...

Practice update: Thomas, Landry aren't participating

The Redskins are going through their final workout of the season, and it would seem unlikely at this point that safety LaRon Landry and receiver Devin Thomas will play Sunday at San Diego. Landry, who has been suffering from a concussion, was not on the practice field at all. Thomas,...

In Sunday's Outlook section, Michael Richman, author of "The Redskins Encyclopedia," puts this lost season into perspective, concluding that it's the team's worst of the modern NFL era.
