Fourteen Redskins on injury report

By Rick Maese

Fourteen Redskins appeared on the team's first injury report of the week, six of whom were unable to participate in the team's practice on Wednesday.

According to the report, the following players all missed practice: linebacker Lorenzo Alexander (hamstring), defensive end Jeremy Jarmon (hamstring), safety LaRon Landry (Achilles), linebacker Rocky McIntosh (thigh) and running back Ryan Torain (hamstring).

Clinton Portis, who is headed to injured reserve, also couldn't participate and wasn't at Redskins Park. Coach Mike Shanahan has said that Landry and Torain are doubtful for Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Seven more players are recovering from injuries and were limited in practice: receiver Brandon Banks (knee), guard Derrick Dockery (knee), defensive lineman Kedric Golston (elbow/groin), guard Artis Hicks (thigh), receiver Santana Moss (knee), center Casey Rabach (knee) and cornerback Carlos Rogers (hamstring).

Quarterback Donovan McNabb (hamstring) practiced fully.

For the Vikings, only safety Jamarca Sanford (hamstring), missed the team's practice Wednesday.

Moss, Portis's closest friend on the team, joined many players in expressing disappointment that the team plans to place the veteran running back on season-ending injured reserve because of an abdominal injury that requires surgery.

Them "U" dudes always stick by each other. I doubt that Slo-Mo Mike Sellers is shedding many tears over Clintonic's demise.

The MNF game were a case study in regeneration, post Skins. Everyone focused on BL and the PB season that he is having with the Broncs, but what about them Chargers? Norv Turner was run out of DC on a pole and now look at him with the Chargers. The Charger's previous coach, Marty Schott, was also run out of town on a pole and then became the Charger's HC and took them to the playoffs. I doubt that we are going to see regeneration with DT but you never know, do you? BTW does anyone have Marty S email ID?

Giants claim Devin Thomas off waivers
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on November 24, 2010, 5:34 PM EST

2008 second-round pick Devin Thomas has been released by receiver-needy Redskins and Panthers this year, which isn’t a great sign for his long-term football future.

His immediate prospects improved on Wednesday, though, when the Giants claimed Thomas off waivers from Carolina, according to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star Ledger. To open up a roster spot, the team placed fullback Madison Hedgecock on injured reserve.

With Steve Smith and Hakeem Nicks injured, players like Derek Hagan, Duke Calhoun, and Thomas will play significant roles against the Jaguars on Sunday.

A couple points of note.

john_keim Casey Rabach says he is ready to play. Wants to try. Hicks said he is optimistic about playing Sunday.

Macho Harris was playing football in the Fairfax, VA Flag Football League when we signed him.

FB Darrel Young: "Look for Terrence Austin to become a significant part of the offense this year."

Brett Favre's first NFL pass was an INT, for a TD, against the Redskins.

Posted by: Diesel44 | November 24, 2010 5:49 PM | Report abuse

With our luck, the only TD's Dt will score this year will be against us.

Who am I kidding? By the time we play the Gina's, he'll be back on the street...

anyway... like i said, i so hope i'm wrong re DT and the giants using him effectively.

moving on the thanksgiving. one of my earliest memories of thanksgiving was the clint longley game. i had a $5 bet with my uncle (from oklahoma) on the game... i was SO psyched when freakin' staubach went down and longley came on...

anyway.... the rest is f'in' history...

Norv is a horrible head coach who has a great team that he can't get to the SB, if they had a decent coach they would have made the SB 2 or 3 times by now.

Marty never won the big show, but yes let's replace are 2 time SB coach with him good call.

Give the man a few 3-4 years to rebuild this sh-t roster and then if he is not producing I will join you in wanting him out.

RE: Fourteen Redskins on injury report

Thank goodness for the Reverend Miracle Mike Shanahan's off-season conditioning program. Who knows where we would have been if everyone hadn't shown up in such great shape?

However, it would be something more than ironic if the lone hold-out, one Albert Haynesworth, becomes the last survivor of the season -- and the lone exception to the IR list.

A DC lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a Sheriffs Deputy. He thinks that he is smarter than the Deputy because he is sure that he has a better education. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the deputies expense…

Deputy says, “License and registration, please.”

Lawyer says, “What for?”

Deputy says, “You didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign “

Lawyer says, “I slowed down, and no one was coming.”

Deputy says, “You still didn’t come to a complete stop. License and registration, please.”

Lawyer says, “What’s the difference?”

Deputy says, “The difference is, you have to come to a complete stop, that’s the law. License and registration, please!”

Lawyer says, “If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I’ll give you my license and registration and you give me the ticket, if not you let me go and no ticket.”

Deputy says, “Exit your vehicle, sir.”

At this point, the deputy takes out his nightstick and starts beating the ever-loving snot out of the lawyer and says: “Do you want me to stop or just slow down?”

Vic,

Your right it's Shanny's fault no other team in the league has a ton of injuries.

Green Bay has more injuries then any team in the league, the Giants pretty much lost every receiver they had on the team.

We went half the season without any major injuries except for Portis, this is the NFL no matter how good your conditioning is you get hurt eventualy. Plus out of those 14 at least 10 will play.

But continue with your hate I know you would rather have Vinny and Zorn, we never had any injuries when they were here.

Point-taken.

A point of discussion in lenghtening the season is that the NFLPA wants to reduce the number of OTAs and 'contact' practices.

Perhaps football coaches should start giving up the warrior-bunker-you-gotta-be here-in-April mentality, and let the players rest their bodies.

Too true. Too much training can leave you
too tight and susceptable to muscle pulls and tears, stress fractures and the like. Also wonder about the durability of certain gym rats -- am thinking in particular of Landry and to a lesser degree Alexander -- who apparently felt compelled to totally remake themselves in the off-season to play new roles or positions.

I'm watching the Tenn game for the first time (hiking in desert last Sun) so I can, you know, comment on it.

That non-call during the punt return was egregious. Clear block in the back.

Shame about CP, he actually did have a nice burst around the edge and up the sideline. I didn't believe it at first, it had been a couple years since I'd seen it. If he can look like that with his groin the way it was, I bet he can play next year.

We know it's early, but how's that LeBron-Wade-Bosh thingy workin' so far?

The Eastern Conference (as of, well, now):

Boston
Orlando
Chicago
Miami
Indiana
Atlanta
New York
Cleveland

We don't follow the NBA enough to know, but will say that perhaps a Miami Heat Finals win isn't the 'slam dunk' the Dade County trio thought it might be.

Bosh doesn't seem to fit in and Wade's shooting slump makes the Miami Heat just another ordinary NBA team...

Redskins kick tires on eight players, including Tony Ugoh
Posted by Mike Florio on November 24, 2010, 9:24 PM EST
As the Redskins try to push their record over .500 through 11 games, they brought in eight players for workouts on Wednesday.

According to the Sports Xchange, the octet of tryouts included former Colts offensive lineman Tony Ugoh, a second-round pick in 2007 who was cut earlier this year. Also getting a look-see were defensive backs Brett Johnson, DaJuan Morgan, Ramzee Robinson, and Ko Simpson, linebackers J.D. Folsom and Donovan Woods, and guard Dennis Landolt.

The Redskins need help in the defensive backfield, due to injuries to safety LaRon Landry and cornerback Carlos Rogers.

None of the players was signed.

The Redskins host the Vikings on Sunday.

The only guy on that list that intrigues me is Ugoh...used to be a really good LT for the Colts a few years back but he's fallen off the face of the earth it seems. Moving him inside to guard and having him on board as an emergency tackle good be a big help here.

With that kind of injury report the ONLY way the Skins have any chance of being victorious in Minnesota is if someone put Ebola virus in the Viking's drinking water, and then it's still a 50/50 proposition.
