Injured Phillip Daniels will miss the rest of the season

By Rick Maese

Defensive end Phillip Daniels saw his first start of the season on Sunday at Dallas. It will stand as his last game of the season.

Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said Monday that Daniels will be placed on season-ending injured reserve and will miss the team's final two games. Daniels aggravated an abdomen injury Sunday against the Cowboys that he suffered a week earlier against Tampa Bay. Shanahan said he did not know whether Daniels would require surgery.

The 37-year-old Daniels has played 14 seasons in the NFL. He served as a reserve end in the Redskins' 3-4 defense. According to NFL.com, he was credited this season with 21 total tackles and two sacks.

Shanahan offered updates on a couple of other players. It's still not clear whether Brian Orakpo (groin/hamstring) will be able to play next Sunday at Jacksonville. Orakpo expressed some concern following the Cowboys' loss, but Shanahan said he wouldn't know more on the second-year linebacker's status until Wednesday.

Safety Reed Doughty suffered a concussion early in Sunday's game. Shanahan won't know whether Doughty can return until later this week.

Defensive end Kedric Golston (groin/elbow) sat out Sunday's game, and Shanahan won't know until at least Wednesday whether Golston will be ready to return.

Linebacker Rocky McIntosh finished Sunday's loss on the sidelines with a hamstring injury. Shanahan was hopeful that McIntosh could return this weekend against the Jaguars.

REDSKINS PLAN SURVIVOR SERIES REUNION TO MARK FAN DEPRECIATION DAY

ASHBURN, VA -- The Washington Redskins are hoping to get a little “extra bounce” going into the off-season when they host a special Fan Depreciation Day on January 2 at FEDEX Field. The New York Giants will be in town to help mark the end of yet another merciless and miserable football season for the Redskins.

According to a team press release, “We’re going to bring back all of your favorite players for one more lap around the sidelines of the stadium.”

Fans will be able to cheer once final time for the dozens of players who suited up for the Redskins this season but then fell by the wayside for one reason or another -- including disgruntled and suspended defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth, frequently injured running back Clinton Portis, and former starting quarterback Donovan McNabb -- who was signed to a multi-year deal and then benched for reasons that are still unclear to many fans.

The press release continued, “For better or worse, this may be the last time you will ever see these guys in a Redskins uniform.”

Additionally, the team will conduct a special competition to determine the “last fan standing” –- awarding anyone who is still in the stadium going into the 4th quarter of the expected debacle an opportunity to buy club section season tickets for the 2011 campaign.

And, if anyone is still in the stadium at the completion of the game –- they will be given the opportunity to sweep up the trash and turn off the lights -– before they are summarily fired and thrown out into the streets by team owner Dan Snyder.

At this rate, it will be a miracle if they can find 11 guys healthy enough to play defense against the Giants.

Good Lord.

I dunno - It kinda seems that much of our tackling problems stem from guys being outta position. Coaches bear some level of responsibility there - if not the majority.

Sure - players are the ones making the visible, obviousl mistakes - but the coachs' job is to keep that from happening.

I'm not a huge fan of Haslett to this point. But he'll probably get another season or two.

Posted by: DikShuttle | December 20, 2010 3:52 PM | Report abuse

Agreed, smurff1, this is getting more and more ridiculous. Will be a lot of unfamiliar Redskin jersey numbers on the field the next few weeks.

Hopefully they'll make the most of their opportunity and give us something to root for aside from improved draft position.

As soon as Phillip Came off of the field on Sunday there should have been a microphone and podium awaiting his retirement speech! I'll miss the training camp reports/updates coming from the team spokesman Phillip... I have a feeling MS will find a few other 35plus year olds to replace PD! Happy Trails!

So, other than draft picks, there will be TONS of UFAs this offseason (assuming there will be a season next fall). The question is whether Skins should try to close deals with Rocky McI and Carlos Rogers. Aaaaaaaah. I dunno. I think Rogers is a good corner, except for the hanging onto picks part. If he stays, that will probably remains the same. If he goes, he probably will become a pick monster. Sort of how it goes with the Skins. I like Rocky McI, but I don't know if he's really the guy that fits with this type of defense. Seems like for a 3-4 to work (like Pittsburgh or Jets or Ravens), it really has to be four beastly LBs. I figure that the Skins have one of those (Orakpo), maybe two with Fletcher.

LaMarr Woodley becomes UFA. Same with David Thomas. Either of those guys.

Use the draft for a guard or a center.

pabrian,

You can't really be saying you didn't see a marked difference between the second-half offense in this game, after Grossman settled in, and the McFabbulous performances we've been subjected to all year, can you? Granted, we didn't win largely because the special teams killed us, defensive tackling was laughable, and Grossman was understandably rusty in the first half, but Grossman was far more impressive than what we've seen from Donovan. I'm not saying Grossman will continue to play like that. If he does, though, its a pretty nasty indictment on McNabb's skills and, franklyP, on his professionalism. If its so clear that he is a superior QB to Grossman and Grossman outperforms him, it must be a lack of effort.

Posted by: mhaslup1 | December 20, 2010 2:58 PM | Report abuse

who brought in mcNabb? Those few rusty drives could have won the game. Those rusty punts could have been the diff. Playing Riley, blades, jarmon, etc. On the last crucial drive AND starting RG doesn't scream, " let's move up in the draft"?

Finding a couple big linebackers is going to be key over the next couple of years.

DeAngelo Williams also will be UFA. Skins really could use a running game. Torain seems like a dude. Not so convinced about Keiland Williams. With RBs, it seems like you either are or you aren't ... not a lot of learning in there ... except maybe for Arian Foster. Where did he come from? I mean, other than "out of nowhere"?

"It was a last, split second thing," Paulescu said Monday. "I dove to the one side and he juked me. All I could do was soccer, karate kick at him, anything. You just do what can. If that saved a touchdown ...you do anything you can to slow him down."

"Honestly, maybe I should have run down the field harder," he added. "It was me and him in the open field, and that's tough. You try to tackle the guy. I just hope I don't get fined or anything. I don't know, with all the fines and everything."


Which reminds me, I was at the bank the other day, and the guy in front of me was withdrawing a big stack of cash. I figured I could buy a whole bunch of drugs with that cash, so I knocked him down and ran out of the bank with it. I sure hope the police don't review the surveillance video -- or you know, READ MY PUBLIC ADMISSION -- and arrest me.

Paulescu said he expects a stronger effort Sunday in Jacksonville after a full week of practice and becoming more accustomed to his teammates.

On the one hand, since the view never changes when you're a punter and you play 12 yards away from most of them, it doesn't seem like it should take long to get accustomed.

On the other hand, I'm not sure I'd ever get accustomed to looking at 10 other men's backsides.

Keiland Williams has proven much more than Torain, lasting through a whole season vs. Being spectacular for 25% of it.

If shanny brought in mcNabb, giving up on JC and 2 draft picks, and mcNabb isn't the guy. We're doomed

Yes, the offense seemed much better with Grossman at QB.

I'm pretty sure Armstrong, Torain and Williams have earned the right to play here next season. Along with Brandon Banks.

Armstrong is only going to get better by next season.

I only saw the second half of the game, but I would say there is some method to Shanahan's maddness.

But he clearly doesn't understand the importance of a win in Dallas, even of a "meaningless" game.

How about the showboat punter return to end the Eagles Giants game? You could almost see it coming.

As for me, I guess I just hate the Eagles a little more.

I will never understand Redskins fans wringing their hands over how McNabb has been "treated". Everybody wanted it to work. It didn't. The mistake was made on Easter Sunday, not when they decided it was time to move on. If he were still in Philly...Reid would've benched him by now and THAT organization really would have to fret over how they handled him because he was a long time Beagle and they may owe him a little consideration. The Redskins? They don't owe him squat except what he is owed contractually. If he feels humiliated...I guess the Philly years didn't toughen him up as much as he is always whining that they did.
Face it. Andy Reid fleeced us. He dumped his washed up and difficult QB on a division rival, avoided all of this handling of the hyper-sensitive McNabb's (and his apologist fans') feelings, and got two nice picks in the process. If you didn't already football-hate Reid and the Beagles...you should now

I have said from the gitgo that it was a bad trade. He was a 2-3 year QB at BEST, and the team wasn't ready to go anywhere with or without him. Turned out the 'skins got taken. Wow, shocker.

That said, the man is a class act, and a class organization doesn't treat someone like that the way they did if (1) they want to remain a class organization and (2) they want to attract good FA talent--other than the mercenaries they've managed to unearth in the past.

They were too kind to a buffoon like Haynesworth and too unkind to McNabb.
