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."

I was first? I thought I might be but didn't claim it figuring (1) someone else would be and I'd be second and look foolish or (B) if I did and I was, I'd just be one of those D-bags who thinks it's a big deal just because he's first to post on a new thread.

But still, my chest is a little bigger now--but that may just be the Botox.

First and foremost Happy Thanksgiving; for forty million a.)he(Haynesworth should be in shape)b)he should not miss a game unless he is injured imo he's overweight and when you're that fat that weight impact's legs,knees,and ankles, and makes you susceptible to injury,that being said he definitley has helped the defense pressure opposing QB's and that has improved the teams sack total. I was dissapointed when Haynesworth didn't play against the Cowgirl's but the D was outstanding last Sunday, wonder how Greg Williams would have handled Haynesworth and him being "gassed" from time to time and his weight issues.

dargregmag, you DO realize that haynesworth had his ankle rolled on to a lesser degree like rinehart's leg don't you? i can agree that he should be in better shape but the trench is the most dangerous part of the field because of all the bodies fighting and pushing so close to one another. if you're engaged w/ one opponent, you obviously can't see someone falling behind you onto your leg. also why the fuqq are you complaining about haynesworth when he's done exactly what he's getting paid to do. he's drawing more double and triple teams and carter and orakpo are the main beneficiaries. carter had 4 sacks all last season. look at him now! i'd rather hanyesworth occupy multiple blockers than actually sack the qb if that means our ends get the job done. also, teams are reluctant to run at him so he's earned his money.

Chad Rinehart wasn't lost to season-ending knee surgery, that was Ladell Betts. Rinehart broke his leg.
