Shanahan: McNabb unlikely to play in preseason finale

Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb, sidelined by a sprained left ankle, said he hopes to play in the final preseason game.

"We're working for that," McNabb said Wednesday after practice at Redskins Park. "I think I possibly have a chance. Absolutely. But we'll see. We'll see."

McNabb sat out practice this week after suffering the injury in last week's 23-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens at FedEx Field. On Tuesday, head coach Mike Shanahan ruled McNabb out of Friday's game against the New York Jets at New Meadowlands Stadium.

Shanahan said it is doubtful McNabb would play in the preseason finale Sept. 2 against the Arizona Cardinals.

"I haven't really thought too much about it, but the chances of Donovan playing in the Arizona game are very slim," Shanahan said. "I haven't done that in a long time. Playing in the fourth game, for obvious reasons, if there's an injury. So the chances are we wouldn't go in that direction, but I can't say 100 percent at this time."

McNabb, however, continues to work toward that goal, even if only to participate in a series.

"Just rehabbing and getting it better," McNabb said. "Just want to make sure it's healthy when we kind of get this thing going, if it's next week or whenever. It does feel a lot better than actually when I came out of the game and the last couple of days. So it's continued to progress over these last couple of days."

The Redskins had specific goals on offense against the Ravens, so McNabb said he dealt with the pain.

"I'm a football player. You get banged up," he said. "I just continued to fight through it. We had some things on offense that we wanted to get done.

"That was kind of the game plan and I wanted to make sure that I was able to do that. Did it bother me a little bit? It did. But yet I didn't put all my focus on the ankle. I just focused on what we needed to do on offense."

A perfectionist, McNabb has expressed disappointment in his performance in the offense to this point. And now he will miss getting game reps Friday with the first-team offense against the Jets' formidable 3-4 defense.

"Obviously, you want to continue playing with the guys, with the ones, and continue to work your timing in game situations," McNabb said. "Obviously, due to this injury, there is a minor setback ... [but] I don't think it's a [major] setback in any way. Instead of it being a physical thing, you have to make sure mentally you continue to stay involved in what's at stake and what we're doing."

I think he will physically be fine for the opening game. I don't think he will be just as far as being prepared. He was definitely out of sync with his receivers last week and could really use a few quarters of work to iron out the kinks. It is good to get Rex some work because I am sure he is going to have to play a few games this year.

Shannahan kept Donovan in the Ravens game a too long. Sure, it's important for our new QB to get adjusted in the new system, but at what cost? The o-line clearly has room for improvement (not to mention a rookie protecting Don's blindside), and the run game was poor. Fortunately the injury is nothing serious, but hopefully this isn't a prequel of things to come for No. 5 and the offense.

On #5, one thing that should really help with his transition to a new team and system is the fact that he is used to playing twice a year against teams that make up a quarter of the Skins games, and played for a decade for a team against which the Skins have two more games. So all in all #5 his going to be very, very familiar with the opponent in one-third of the games, right off the bat. (And yes, he did not have his best games against Dallas last year, but he has done well against Dallas over the years).

Vegas wouldn't even take odds on McNabb NOT playing in all 16 games this season. Rex needs as much work with the starters as he can get, because he will have some starts this season you can bank on that.

good question -- though I think Hanburger's inclusion is a pretty much a lock

Posted by: zcezcest1 | August 25, 2010 3:22 PM | Report abuse

Chris Hanburger almost in the HOF is wonderful news. He was my very first Redskins hero. I remember playing football in the backyard with my father when I was 4 years old pretending I was Hanburger. My very first games at RFK were at the tail end of Hanburger's career. He used to work at the Ford dealership in Upper Marlboro, MD in the mid-'90s - I remember sitting there waiting for my car one day and hearing his name over the intercom, so I asked an employee, "is that really....?" Sadly, I didn't meet him that day, though.

I've wondered for years why he wasn't in the HOF while all of these less deserving cowgirls rolled in year after year. Good job HOF. Unfortunately, I think he's going to be the last one for a long time, expect for, maybe, Jacoby, but it doesn't seem like the HOF voters like him very much for some reason. Perhaps Clinton Portis if he eaks out 4,000 or so more yards. Other than those two, I can't think of anyone else that the HOF would realistically consider.

just looked over the record of senior nominees getting into the HOF. By my count its 32 guys voted among 42 nominations. Some guys got voted on more than once -- so its really more like 32/38 guys have gotten in via the oldtimers method.

Don't think the senior committee has ever had to consider a guy with 4 All Pros and 9 Pro Bowls on his resume ... they're usually in long before the senior committee gets a whack at them.

Hanburger was drafted as the 245th pick. In today's draft, with 32 teams and all the compensatory picks, that would make him about a 7th round selection. Still pretty good value. I wonder what his signing bonus was?

Unfortunately, Haynesworth has shown that he's a beast on the field and a jackass off it.

Go back and read the previous Haynesworth threat--Shanahan's praise for him is effusive.

Nobody likes being poked in the eye, and from what I've read Shanahan is a grudgeholding type. Yet, he's STILL praising Haynesworth--despite the disrespect--and indicating H-Worth will be moved to various positions across the D-line because he's a straight-up playmaker.

...and yes, a jackass.

I really believe that Big Jake's HOF candidacy has been hurt by voters' memories of him getting abused by Lawrence Taylor. Redskins-Giants tilts in the '80s were marquee games that were often nationally-televised, and I'm sure that a lot of the voters either covered them or watched them on TV. Jacoby was a great player whom I believe deserves HOF enshrinement, but LT56 gave him fits, as he did with many others, and I believe that this is the most vivid memory of Jacoby that many of the voters have.

Signed by the Dolphins a week ago, Miami released the 12-year veteran on Wednesday. This probably marks the end of the road for Bill Parcells' second round pick in 1999 with the New York Jets.

Thomas played four years in New York and seven with Washington, starting all 143 games of his career. He was trying to come back from a torn right triceps.

It might be time for Randy to start a BBQ show on Comcast or something cause his football career looks to be about over.

===========================================
You might be right t1205, but for some reason I still feel better with him at guard than Heyer.

Isnt Heyer still the right tackle?

I'm sure the absolute hypocrisy is completely lost on this bleeting retard. Put your helmet back on son, you're playing with the big girls.

Well, I'm taking a page out of your playbook yesterday and think its funny that you didn't know some obscure Simpson's line. Geez, what mo-ron doesn't know that.

Also, if you want we can meet up at Big Bear. Only live an hour from there.

Regardless, I can safely say that TE is the biggest prick up here, but Scott Campbell is giving him a serious run for his post points.

Indefatigable, obsessive, crotchety old coon and the young, arrogant upstart.

Officially absolved -- innocent all along -- and finally we have definitive proof:

No way I can post two comments with the exact same time stamp.

Now go play amongst yourselves.

Really? Then you must be not only the most deranged but also the stupidest guy on the blog. Open two browsers and you've got it. Open 50 and you can post all your sock puppets at once: Rotfrau, Risa_L, MimiAnsari, bleep-bleep, debaitor, and I'madick.

Oh Ok TE,

You seem to have me confused with someone who has no life but for the blog. Never tried the browser trick. Next you'll tell me I'm using multiple computers across several different networks in different time zones.

Like I said -- JERK -- I am too busy for this tomfoolery.

Now go play in traffic you idiot.

Looks like beep-beep has previous experience posting on the RI blog under different aliases at the same time.

But I forgot my pen. Sh!t the bed again. Typical.

Keep scrappin' Poopy,

I hate to be negative but this injury to McNabb's ankle is probably a precursor of things to come. I wasn't ecstatic when the trade went down, the Eagles are not a dumb organization, they've been consistently successful over the years, and there are reasons they let McNabb go, one that over the last few years he has been injury prone. What he encountered against the Ravens wasn't all that, and he's supposed to make it through a whole season?

I don't see it. I'm hoping and praying, but I don't see it.

Get used to disappointment with McNabb Skin Fans.

Lisa, if the Bible has taught us nothing else, and it hasn't, it's that girls should stick to girls sports, such as hot oil wrestling and foxy boxing and such and such.
