Shanahan: LaRon Landry, Carlos Rogers out vs. Giants

By Barry Svrluga

Washington Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said Friday that strong safety LaRon Landry and cornerback Carlos Rogers will miss Sunday's game against the New York Giants, the second time in three weeks that both key members of the Redskins' secondary will be out.

"Any time you lose great players, it obviously hurts you," Shanahan said. "But you give other people opportunities and see what they can do."

Landry, who will miss his third straight game, is still in a walking boot and dealing with a nagging Achilles' tendon injury. Shanahan said he is hopeful the boot will come off next week, and he said the team has not considered putting Landry on season-ending injured reserve.

"If we didn't think he'd be able to play, we would IR him," Shanahan said. "But there's hope, and that's why he's not IR'd. You just kind of wait and see. Hopefully, it's sooner rather than later."

Rogers missed the Nov. 21 game at Tennessee with a hamstring problem, then returned last week against Minnesota and tweaked his other hamstring. Shanahan said Rogers, who did not appear at practice Friday, is out because of a combination of the two injuries.

Running back Ryan Torain attended practice Friday but did not participate fully, and Shanahan said he would be a game-time decision on Sunday.

"Got some reps in there, but still not 100 percent, but getting better," Shanahan said.

Offensive tackle Trent Williams, who was limited Thursday after injuring his shoulder in an accident at home, returned to practice Friday and participated fully. He will play, Shanahan said.

F...well at least Trent's alright.

Waiting to 2012 means he's the top guy and he will get top guy loot.

Doubt that. He makes a lot of things happen with his running game which will not be possible at the pro level. Plus Aub doesn't use WCO and it is an open question if he is accurate enough for that. McNabb accuracy ain't going to cut it.

That's awful close to our prediction

Posted by: monk811 | December 3, 2010 1:28 PM

Make sure Chia, Scamp and Hess are on board with the prediction...we don't want to upset the Great Oz's conspiracy theory.

Hey, how come you didn't get mentioned with me, scamp and chia, didn't you make fun of him too? That's irretarded, he should've called your DIVE ASS out too!!!

Great.

Not that CR is the second coming of Lester Hayes.

We might get lit up like a X-mas tree.

Going back to the last post...

I like the idea of Austin trying to emulate Moss. They are very similar in size and physical skills. If Austin can develop into a similar WR to Moss, then we could easily be looking at his future replacement. I don't think that Moss is ready to be kicked to the curb yet, but having a replacement already on board can't hurt.

Washington is 26th in rushing with a 90.7-yard average, and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is not pleased about the situation.

Dude - be sure you are looking in the mirror when you tell someone that. Tom and West were avail RBs last offseason and both are doing pretty good now although Tom is starting to show signs of petering out. Instead the Skins went with Port, John and Park, who all fizzled out real bad.

Don't forget, the Gints are without their top WRs, Steve Smith and Hakeem Nicks. That's why they signed DThomas.

So it will be backups vs backups.

He also reminds me of Eddie Royal. Looks to have the same quickness, same size. Shanahan drafted him his last year in Denver and he caught 91 passes his rookie year. Would look great in the slot! I agree, he would be a great replacement for Moss, big shoes to fill though.....

They need to get the Reverend Mike's Miracle Healing Hands on them.

There's nothing he can't heal -- at least for those who truly want it and believe in it -- witness Banks' knees, Portis' groin.

Could it be that they're not yet true believers?

The prob is that Moss has great spatial perception - he can run under deep throws. That is a special talent that few WRs have.

Ok, I'll get in line in the back of the brain!!! But first I need to concentrate and tell scamp, chia, and hess the predictions so they can type them in soon!

And the only powers the 'great' beep has is being able to take the fries outta the oil and salt them in under a minute!

BTW Pabrian,

Does it make you feel better about yourself to put down a rookie 7th round draft pick who just played in his first NFL game?

If you were a real Redskins fan you would want the Skins late round picks to develop into solid players. Ridiculing young players who are getting their first chance to play makes you look like an ass, but of course I should expect that. You make an ass out of yourself on a constant basis.

Based on the outcome, it appears one must be cautious about whose "healing hands" are allowed on one's groin.

Trent v Osi. Who comes out on top? Did you know that Ndamnkong Suh is the only DT dude in the Top 10 sack leaders? All the rest are LBs and DEs.

When Newton logged on to the college network, they caught him, and the threw the laptop out of his dorm window.

Thats a good thing...sounds like that may translate into him knowing when to get rid of the ball and when to throw it away.

I love the Redskins, but I see them losing this weekend. I followed the Redskins since the 80's and the Giants seem to have our number. We can't beat'em for some reason.

Think I'm criticizing the Redskins? Remember the Giants were 0-2 and played the Redskins (Gibbs II) and beat the Redskins and went on to win the Superbowl against the Patriots? That's just one example!!

THERE IS A LOT OF BLAME TO GO AROUND. NO ONE IS EXEMPT. LANDRY HAD A GREAT YEAR...BUT AS A SAFETY, HE CAN`T COVER RECEIVERS. WHY NOT PUT SOME WEIGHT ON HIM AND MAKE HIM A LINE BACKER? PUT HIM ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE FROM ORAPKO.
BOTTOM LINE...WE HAVE A TERRIBLE O LINE. THAT IS WHY WE SCORE SO FEW POINTS. THEY CAN`T RUN BLOCK..NOR PASS BLOCK. YOU COULD PUT TOM BRADY BEHIND CENTER.. WOULD MAKE NO DIFFERENCE. EVEN VICK WOULD NOT HAVE MUCH CHANCE TO GET GOING.
THE LONGER THE D IS ON THE FIELD..THE WORSE IT IS, THE NUMBERS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.

THE PROBLEMS ARE FAR WORSE THAN A PLAYER HERE OR THERE...YEARS OF NEGLECT, AND BAD DRAFT CHOICES (ORAPKO IS AN EXCEPTION)...CAN`T BE FIXED IN A YEAR OR TWO. WE NEED TO KEEP DRAFT CHOICES...DUMP SOME GUYS FOR MORE CHOICES...AND DRAFT WISELY. IN ADDITION..WE ARE ABOUT THE OLDEST (AGE) TEAM IN THE LEAGUE.
