Orakpo, Banks, Golston doubtful for Sunday
Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said after practice Thursday that linebacker Brian Orakpo, defensive end Kedric Golston and receiver Brandon Banks are all doubtful for Sunday's game at Jacksonville. None of the three practiced on Thursday, but the head coach said it's too early to rule any of them out for the Jaguars' game.
Safety Kareem Moore also missed a second day of practice Thursday, but coaches are still hopeful that he'll be able to play Sunday.
Shanahan said Banks' knee was sore and "he couldn't cut like he normally does."
Safety Reed Doughty, who suffered a concussion early last Sunday at Dallas, was at practice Thursday and "looked pretty good," Shanahan said, but Doughty hasn't been cleared yet by doctors to play.
Even though there's only two games left and the Redskins have no shot at the playoffs, Shanahan said he doesn't necessarily handle injuries any differently than he does early in the season.
"It's just like a normal game," he said. "I don't care if we're getting ready for a playoff or whatever the situation is, you want to evaluate your guys. If they give you a chance to play, you got to play them. But you're not going to play somebody that's not able to go."
