Inactives - Marcus Washington and Reed Doughty Out

The following Redskins are inactive due to injury:

S Reed Doughty has the stomach flu and is out.
LB Marcus Washington (hamstring/hip)
S Kareem Moore (knee)
LB Khary Campbell (thigh)
Healthy scratches are:
OL Chad Rinehart, OL Jason Fabini, DE Rob Jackson

So, WR Malcolm Kelly makes his NFL debut.

Skins are very short at safety. Reed Doughty out with illness (stomach flu) and Kareem Moore still out recovering from his knee problems. So they have just Landry, Hamilton and Horton up. That's it. And two of those guys have very little experience at all, and Landry is just a second year guy who missed the entire preseason with a hamstring injury. Horton will start in Doughty's place.

Against this passing attack that's huge and I would not be surprised to see Shawn Springs play some safety. Horton is strictly a strong-side guy for now.

They are also very short at LB again, with Washington and Campbell out. That leaves just Albert Fincher as a backup at all three positions, and he's a teams guy for now, really. I expect a lot of nickel coverage. Blades will start for Marcus Washington. So they are losing lots of talent on special teams and in the back end. That's scary against the Saints.

So the Skins have one reserve safety and one reserve LB active. That's it.

Saints Inactives:
WR Marques Colston
CB Randall Gay
LB Scott Fujita
RB Aaron Stecker
CB Mike McKenzie
S Roman Harper
T Jermon Bushrod
DT Antwan Lake

The Saints are also beat up on D, without a starting corner, safety and LB. Their secondary was an area of concern already, so maybe we see some downfield fireworks.

Big trouble. Gonna' see a number of blown coverages for big plays. It's inevitable given the mix being used.

D-line must, must put pressure. If not, Brees will throw for 400+ and 4-5 TDs.

Hope not, but I see a big 38-17 Saints win.

D-Line is gonna have to step up big time today. Pressure on Brees, and disrupt whatever they try to do in the running game

Wow are we weak at LB. Marcus appears to be done...can't ever count on him any more.

I say let Horton play the whole way. It's the only way to learn.

Wow. I thought that M Washington was healthier than he's been in years, "bouncing around" and such.......sure hope nobody gets hurt during the game.....

These pregame shows really suck. I used to love em. ESPN Countdown, NFLN Show, CBS. Fox is still the best, but they have their bad moments.

Good grief, it's only Week 2 and the injuries are already mounting. Let Springs play safety for most of the game. Offense has to step up.

I am glad Horton is starting he will tackle and perform way better then Daughty

It's ok, we drafted 3 guys to catch the ball, everything is fine....err, what do you mean the other half of the tea,? (V. Cerrato when asked "What the Skins will do differently to win this season?")

The shows are too long. I grew up watching the half-hour NFL Today on CBS. 30 minutes was plenty of time for Brent & Irv to report on league/team news, Jimmy The Greek to make his picks, and the chick (Phyllis George or Jayne Kennedy) to do some fluff piece on a QB.

Ahhh, the good old days.

Yes three receivers drafted and 8 mil in cap room spent on a sore-footed, bum-kneed 244-pound 34-year-old Samba Artist, so there's little cash available for replacements.

Tuna must be drooling. That second rounder he finagled from the skins is looking like a low first rounder.

Two worst franchises in the NFL? Right now it's the Raiders and the Redskins. The Raiders have a clueless owner calling the shots and about to boot his inexperienced coach.
The Redskins have a clueless owner calling the shots and looking west and going, "Gee Al, maybe I'll try that."

how many more bracelets could Tony Kornheiser wear? ESPN just did a piece with he, Jaws and Tirico, and he looked like some cheap, gaudy pittsburgh fan. Those fans are the most obnoxious I've ever seen, and they are everywhere. They always have on too much male jewelry. Yuck!

The only pregame show I can bear to watch is Fox's...I'm going to admit this right here: I do like Jimmy Johnson. In my career, I've had to deal with him a couple of times as a coach and he has been nothing but nice and helpful, very professional. I also confess that I have seen his hair up close and it's the eighth wonder...I'm still struggling with Terry Bradshaw's nude scenes in "Failure to Launch," but my respect for JJ outweighs that troubling image.

Couldn't agree more! I keep hoping D. Snyder will go off on a world-wide trip for a few years and leave everything to capable hands, but then I awaken to the same old sh*t we've had the last decade or so.

Anyone else catch Reed Doughty as a guest on "Redskins Late Night" last night? At the restaurant where they were taping, he ordered a steak sandwich, medium or medium rare. I think he said that was his favorite food. The last we saw of him, he was taking his first bite out of the sandwich moments after it was served. I know that show wasn't live, but I wonder if his stomach flu was related to eating meat not cooked thoroughly.

Jason, i can really feel your optimism in this post....i'm really sorry the skins ended up winning. Oh to think of all the material you lost....

Does anyone else think Reed Doughty may have lost his starting job?

Horton is an upgrade over Doughty and Blades is an upgrade over Washington...
