Rogers, Hicks, Rabach, McIntosh expected to play

By Jason Reid

After losing many players because of injuries recently, the Redskins listed several starters as active for today's game against the Minnesota Vikings at FedEx Field.

Cornerback Carlos Rogers, who sat out the previous game with a sore hamstring, and right guard Artis Hicks, sidelined by a thigh problem, are active and expected to be in the lineup. Center Casey Rabach (knee) and linebacker Rocky McIntosh (knee), injured during the 19-16 victory in Week 10 against Tennessee, also are expected to play.

New Redskins safety Macho Harris was listed among Washington's inactives. With strong safety LaRon Landry sidelined the past two weeks by an Achilles' tendon injury, the Redskins on Tuesday signed Harris, a former Virginia Tech standout, who played for the Philadelphia Eagles last season.

Reed Doughty, who will start in place of Landry, and free safety Kareem Moore are the team's only active safeties. Cornerback Kevin Barnes took reps at safety during practice and could play the position if needed. Landry also is inactive for the second time in as many weeks.

New running back Andre Brown, signed this week after Clinton Portis went on season-ending injured reserve, running back Ryan Torain, guard Derrick Dockery, and defensive linemen Anthony Bryant and Jeremy Jarmon also are inactive. John Beck is listed as the third quarterback.

For the Vikings, wide receiver Bernard Berrian is out. Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice will be quarterback Brett Favre's top targets at wideout.

Today in Raljon, Maryland...

Le Favre will notch career completion # 6281, and # 6282 respectively.

After that, however, will he record first?

TD # 508...

or INT # 335?

Or will his first throw be for an interception?

Or for a touchdown?

We have no way of knowing.

I think he will be used as a backup but we'll see.

In preparation for his big moment when he is shuttled into the game

Stephon Heyer is shadow boxing,

flinching at the slightest provocation...

Man I want a win that comes at the end of the third quarter and not by a late overtime field goal.

Favre can be a klutz.

But our fear today is that he might go into the phonebooth and come out playing like Superman #4.

Remember: we got defense that's given up tons 'o yards this season, and the vikes have the type of weapons on offense that can dominate if things all align.
