Derrick Dockery inactive, streak broken

Derrick Dockery had played in every game of his career, a string of 116 consecutive regular season games. But after starting the Redskins' first two games of the season, Dockery is on the inactive list for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Dockery had started 111 games before losing his starting job to Kory Lichtensteiger in Week 3.

Trent Williams, who has missed the past two games with knee and toe injuries, is active and expected to start at left tackle.

Also, second-year defensive lineman Jeremy Jarmon is slated to see his first action of the season Sunday, and the Redskins apparently are comfortable going with just one nose tackle against Green Bay.

With Clinton Portis out with a groin injury and Albert Haynesworth out of town due to the death of his younger brother, the Redskins chose six other players for their inactive list: Dockery, nose tackle Anthony Bryant, tight end Logan Paulsen, cornerback Kevin Barnes and linebacker Perry Riley. John Beck will serve as the third quarterback.

With both Haynesworth and Bryant unavailable Sunday, the Redskins likely will rely on a lot more four-man defensive fronts, which also might explain the decision to activate Jarmon for the first time.

Green Bay has included right tackle Mark Tauscher among its inactives. That means rookie Bryan Bulaga will get his first career start Sunday against the Redskins. Also inactive for the Packers: cornerback Sam Shields, linebacker Nick McDonald, fullback Quinn Johnson, linebacker Brandon Chillar, linebacker Nick Barnett, offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse and defensive end Jarius Wynn.

Can't say I really understand Dockery being inactive. You'd think we really need him for depth purposes, at a minimum. Weird.

My brother-in-law in Montana wants to watch the game. Does anyone have the website where he can watch the game online? Thanks.

Ryan Torain:

"He also scored a three on the Wonderlic intelligence test. That could be his problem with blitz pick-ups."

If they can get a 6th rounder for Dock after the season, it'll be a blessing in disguise. Not sure what Dock's salary is in 2011.

I expect to see a lot of roll outs from the Redskins offense today to try to avoid the pass rush of the Packers. Maybe even a couple reverses. Something we haven't done this year. Hope we can pull out a win. If we can, the wifey has to sing the Redskins fight song when we go to Wisconson for her family reunion in May!

I think I'm going to start Torain over Tomlinson in fantasy football this week. Is this insane? Isn't this kid unstoppable?

They are getting out of the Derrick Dockery business. He would be cut, but unlike DT, he's actually useful.

With TW coming back they had to sit someone.

thanks! Lets hope it holds out. I cant take listening to the 980 crew. I respect all their contributions over the years, but 980 NEEDS to get a real commentary crew.

The NFL is a war of attrition you can never have enough O-Lineman what makes this coaching staff think that Kory what's his name is an upgrade over Derric Dockerey since Kory has been out of football for a year the longer this season goes on the more the Shanny's make me think they ain't got a clue.
