Four starters sit out practice Wednesday
As the Redskins began preparation for Sunday's game against the New York Giants in East Rutherford, N.J., four potential starters sat out of Wednesday's practice altogether - including inside linebacker Rocky McIntosh, who missed the workout for what the team labeled "personal reasons."
McIntosh is the only player who missed practice whose status Coach Mike Shanahan did not address following the workout, which was held away from Redskins Park because of Wednesday's rain. Redskins Park has no indoor practice facility.
As Shanahan indicated, strong safety LaRon Landry (Achilles), cornerback Carlos Rogers (hamstrings) and running back Ryan Torain (hamstring) also sat out.
According to the official injury report, five players were limited in practice: receiver/returner Brandon Banks (knee); defensive lineman Kedric Golston (elbow and groin); guard Artis Hicks (thigh); receiver Santana Moss (knee); and outside linebacker Brian Orakpo (ankle).
Several players who have been dealing with injuries - including outside linebacker Lorenzo Alexander (hamstring), quarterback Donovan McNabb (hamstring), safety Kareem Moore (knee) and center Casey Rabach (knee) - were able to participate fully in practice, which Shanahan said was at about three-quarter speed.
The Giants had five players who did not practice at all, according to the injury report: receiver Hakeem Nicks (lower leg) and Steve Smith (pectoral); offensive linemen Shawn Andrews (back) and Shaun O'Hara (foot); and cornerback Will Blackmon (chest).
