Backup placekick holders are likely Grossman, Cooley
With punter Josh Bidwell apparently injured, the Redskins would need someone else to assume holding duties on placekicks Sunday against the St. Louis Rams.
Bidwell was limping visibly as he was helped off the field by kicker Graham Gano during pregame warm-ups. Gano, who also punted in college, returned to the field and worked on punting, and he likely would handling place kicking and punting.
As for the holder if Bidwell is sidelined, Pro Bowl tight end Chris Cooley and backup quarterback Rex Grossman are the most likely candidates. Both are said to have good hands, which would seem to be a good thing for a holder.
Of course, Bidwell may be well enough to hold but not punt. So he still could help against the Rams.
