Chris Cooley sustains concussion

Redskins tight end Chris Cooley left Sunday's game after the end of the third quarter with what team officials said was a concussion.

Cooley, who was second on the team in both receptions and receiving yards coming in, was on the field for Washington's final possession of the third quarter, which ended in a field goal that cut Indianapolis's lead to 24-17. But as the quarter ended, Cooley was taken to the locker room. He did not return.

Cooley finished with five catches for 37 yards and was a key figure in the running game, frequently sealing Indianapolis linebackers in front of running back Ryan Torain. He was replaced by third-year tight end Fred Davis on the Redskins' first possession of the fourth quarter.

In a chat on NFL.com, Cooley said he had three concussions in college, then switched to a better helmet.

Well, I don't know how upset I should be. We stayed in the game, and the offense had 89 and 92 yard touchdown drives. The defense gave up a TON of yards but got four fumble recoveries. O-line protection was sub-par, but they allowed Torain to get over 100 yards. I guess I'm most mad about the four INTs that the Skins dropped, including two by Carlos.

Shades of Norv Turner - losing a winnable FB game (barely) to a better team. Skins played fairly well; others will go on ad nauseum about the glaring missed opportunities (forget Rogers hands, we missed FGs). Biggest mistake was before the game - not playing AH. Seriously.

@mmz114 SHUT UP about McNabb. Man played like a beast and kept that offense in it tonight. Oh wait let me guess - you'd rather have Jason Campbell back right? Moron.

THOUGHTS ON THE GAME:
CALLING ALL HANDS: You're wanted for our secondary because they seem to not be able to catch an interception to save their lives. Carlos Rodgers and Kareem Moore you must make those picks to get Manning off the field. C'monnnnnn you're killing me.

TORAIN: Ran like a beast tonight - job well done.

COOLEY: Hope he feels better.

PATIENCE FANS: I wasn't expecting this close outcome but it's a testament that this team is heading in the right direction. They fought, created turnovers, and just continue to LIGHT UP and knock players into kingdom come on defense and McNabb will get more weapons on offense. Again people - please - patience. Shanahan is looking to see what parts he already has going forward and waht he can go get. The foundation is being built.

PASS PASS PASS PASS FAIL

We had a good shot at winning this, and I'm pleased that we came close, but I have to nit pick.

The offensive play calling was terrible imo. How do you beat the colts? You run, run run. Torain was doing a great job but they took the ball out of his hands and passed WAY too much.

If our run game was stagnant I would understand west coast pass only offense, but that wasn't the case. We were running well, just not nearly often enough.

I guess we were competitive...blah blah blah.

That whole "amoeba" defense where you have everyone standing up and no down linemen had to be one of the STUPIDEST most INEFFECTIVE defensive gameplans I've ever seen.

It didn't confuse Peyton one bit (300yds/2TDs/108 rating)

AND it gave one of the worst rushing teams in the NFL an opportunity to tack 170 yards on the ground on our arses.

If we didn't have a couple guys step up to make a couple of great individual plays for some turnovers - along with a couple missed FGs - the Colts post 40 points on us.

And to boot...that was one of the WORST 4th and 10 plays/reads/throws I've ever seen in my life.

I truly believe we will be as good as any team in the NFC next year and pretty close as this year winds down. This team fights hard and is getting better as the year goes on. McNabb can chunk it in the dirt but he can also keep you in the game and give us a chance to win. To paraphrase TO "That's our quarterback, man" sniffle, sniffle...glad we got him.

This defense is false.

This D played their best game of the season against the Eagles when AH played his best game of the season.

Instead of getting his fat arse in the lineup to put some pressure on Peyton, they deactivate him and put him in the owners box and decide to have the linemen do a tap dance around the line of scrimmage.

FAIL.

They needed to do the opposite. They needed to have some stud DTs putting their hands in the dirt and getting to Peyton up the middle instead of hopping around flirting with each other while Peyton carves up the secondary and the RBs get 6 yards a carry.

Without AH playing well, this defense is so weak up the middle it's embarassing.

tough loss, but this will take some of the pain away,

Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin had a tough first half. He was flagged for excessive celebration when he leapfrogged Williams in the end zone after the first touchdown. Then, he got called for pass interference on what would've been his 68-yard touchdown catch and run when his one-handed shove of Asher Allen sent the Vikings cornerback falling to the turf.

Last week, Cowboys right tackle Marc Colombo slipped while trying to chest bump a teammate after a touchdown and got a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct because of the NFL rule that prohibits going to the ground to celebrate.

The defense hits hard, but giving that many yards up consistently is ridiculous.
And enough is enough with AH. Death of a sibling means you be as flexible as possible with your staff. Basically, MS exercised his right to be an *sshole with AH in this instance. I think he gets that your the boss, MH; you can stop being jerk to him and try working with him. Be a bigger man, you ARE IN CHARGE.

I would feel better with this loss if I KNEW we were playing our best players. We WEREN'T and no one on this board can argue that. If AH was willing to play, he shoulda been played. I am sure he had some issues to work out this week that pounding PManning woulda a been a good salve for.

I just don't get it, I don't see and reasonable defense for it. You need to play your best players and I can't believe that there is any real disciplinary issue here. He's not breaking any laws here, Punishing him for past transgressions is at best, petty.

Tonight we couldn't decide what poison we wanted and ended up drinking both.

They threw on us and they ran on us.

LL30 had a couple throw-back plays. Getting burned on the Garcon TD deep and trying to missile tackle Addai at the 5 yard line and bouncing him into the endzone instead of just wrapping him up and bringing him down.

This defense is FALSE. If it weren't for a couple nice individual plays to create some turnovers, the Colts post 40 point tonight.

The defensive gameplan sucked, and if AH isn;t in the lineup and playing well the defense is embarassingly soft up the middle.

This team's best defensive game came against the Eagles, and guess what? That was also AH's best game.

Diez,

They replayed and analyzed that TD about 5 times on TV.

Hall had the outside and LL30 had the inside deep coverage.

Instead of playing the coverage straight up LL30 tried to take some steps toward the LOS and then got caught flat footed when Garcon accelerated by him.

The ball was thrown on the inside over Landry.

WTH are you talking about...were you watching a move about knights and princesses or something?

The defensive gameplan SUCKED, a couple guys make some timely individual plays (Orakpo, Fletch, Zo); the secondary sucked and I thought LL30 took a step back this game.

On offense, McNabb was annoyingly up and down. And the pass-pro was suspect.

Ryan Torain and the run game FINALLY got going and that was the saving grace for this team tonight. Torain got nice chunks of yardage to keep chains moving.

Just curious: If you're facing one of the best quarterbacks in the game, and that quarterback's defense is weakest at run-stopping, and your RB is doing pretty well: WHY ISN'T THE RUN TO PASS RATIO MORE RUN THAN PASS. Runs clock, keeps Manning off field, and maybe you even drive the ball. I'm sure the answer is they were "stacking the box," blah blah blah, but looked to me like even when Indy stacked the box the 'Skins could run. Is Kyle Shanahan, in other words, too enamored with the passing game that he won't run when it makes sense to do so. Or, if you have pass, dump off passes to RBs and make them virtual runs -- again, high percentage, tackled on the turn, clock ticking, Manning on the sideline, etc.

Is Mike Shanahan letting the fact that his son is calling plays affect his challenging the play caller to do his best. Don't think Kyle did tonight.

On the other hand, completely support Shanahan's handling of Haynesworth. He's said if the guy doesn't practice, won't play. Haynesworth thinks of course that he's too talented to be required to practice. If Shanahan gives in to Haynesworth, he'll lose the team's respect. Better, if Haynesworth keeps shooting off moutn, to trade. If can't get value to compensate for the insane amount Dan & Vinny invested in this guy, then deactivate him and let him sit his rear somewhere far away from the team. Again, if Shanahan accommodates this guy, he won't sustain the credibility he seems to have with the team. I supect that privately most of the team (at least those with a sense of what it means to be a team) believe Haynesworth should be held to the same standard as everyone else.

you boys are over analyzing this AH92 thing.

Basic facts: AH92 trekked around the Eastern US burying his brother and dealing with those issues. He probably slept very little. It was an emotionally draining and mentally exhausting six days. Shanahan met with him when he got back and had a chance to evaluate how he was doing. He found him to be emotionally drained and mentally exhausted. Reports out of Redskins Park verify this situation. Shanahan made the easy decision to sit him for the week.

He simply wasn't ready to get ready to play. Nobody was at fault. Nobody was trying to punk anybody. After sitting out, now he can fully participate in the preparation for Chicago. Its really that simple.

your the kind of fantasy football guy I love to have in my league. the kind of guy that would pass on Pierre Thomas (undrafted free agent) and take Reggie Bush (1rst round). The kind of guy that would pass on Anthony Armstrong (undrafted free agent) and take Devin Thomas (2nd round).

ATV (All Torain Vehicle) wasn't fortunate on missed tackles. He broke the tackles with hard charging runs even when the DT was in the backfield because Rabach and Lich are undersized. A RB who is averaging 4.2 ypc behind a OL in transition and you are complaining... good grief.

Eric Dickerson was an upright runner. So was Christian Akoye. San Diego's Ryan Mathews, the Bill's CJ Spiller, the Raider's McFadden are all upright runners. You would have passed on them too right?
