Hall, Haynesworth remain questionable
If top cornerback DeAngelo Hall sits out Sunday's game in Philadelphia because of a knee injury, Carlos Rogers will join Fred Smoot in the starting lineup, Coach Jim Zorn said today after practice at Redskins Park.
"He's looking good," Zorn said of Hall. "But he's very questionable for the game."
Although Pro Bowl defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth (ankle) has improved, he also is still listed as questionable. "Albert was running pretty good straight ahead," Zorn said. "He's still not ready."
The Redskins expect veteran tackle-guard Mike Williams (ankle) to play in the game at Lincoln Financial Field, but rookie guard Edwin Williams will remain with the first-team. Williams filled in well after Chad Rinehart suffered a season-ending knee injury in the Week 11 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
"We're going to try to keep that group in there," Zorn said of the offensive line that finished the game against Dallas. "But Mike Williams is coming on strong. He's definitely going to be active. ... We're going to start Edwin."
Linebacker H.B. Blades, who recently had knee surgery, sat out practice after having fluid drained from his knee. "He's still questionable for the game," Zorn said. "He just needed a rest. We took some fluid off it after the game and we're just trying to get him back."
Tight end Todd Yoder (toe) is expected to play. "He's likely to play, but I have to list him as questionable right now," Zorn said. "He's a tough guy. He wants to play."
