Kareem Moore returns for some drills

A familiar face returned to the practice field Friday: free safety Kareem Moore.

Moore hasn't practiced with the team since suffering a knee injury Aug. 21 against the Baltimore Ravens. He was limited on Friday, stretching with his teammates and going through some drills. Moore wore a ball cap and no pads.

Moore, one of the bright spots of training camp, had arthroscopic surgery on his knee on Aug. 23 and was expected to miss four to six weeks. Reed Doughty is likely to start in his place Sunday against the Cowboys. Moore has been recuperating for nearly three weeks, but Coach Mike Shanahan said Moore's return to the practice field Friday isn't necessarily a sign that his rehabilitation is going more quickly than previously expected.

"I can't really say right now. He's doing drills that are football-related," Shanahan said. "To be honest with you, I haven't watched him work out yet. Hopefully, we'll keep our fingers crossed [and] he'll be back sooner rather than later."

If the four-to-six week diagnosis is still accurate, the earliest Moore might be available is Week 3 against St. Louis.

"Hopefully, we'll keep our fingers crossed [and] he'll (K Moore) be back sooner rather than later."


Until he returns, you have to hope R Doughty plays well.

Anyone watching last night's game could see how on the opening drive, D Brees would look off the vikes' starting FS--a guy playing in place of an injured player--then make deep throws to the outside.

Too, I like how Grilliams took the young M Jenkins and converted him to FS from CB.

I wonder if K Barnes could make a similar adjustment---I'd rather have a young guy with cornerback speed and cover skills playing FS than Horton or Doughty.

Just to make sure everyone sees it...
This is what ESPN insider says...not directly saying anything about V Jax to the Skins...but rumor is the Unnamed team that reached a one year deal with V Jax was the Washington Redskins. The only thing is they don't want to give up two draft picks if the guy is going to miss 6 games. So Sept. 16 is a key date.
___________________________________________
UPDATE: Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reports that the arbitration hearing regarding the length of Vincent Jackson's ineligibility to play at the start of the season will take place on Thursday, Sept. 16, and that a decision could come as quickly as Sept. 17.

---

Over the past weekend, two pivotal events occurred in the continuing saga of Jackson's final days with the San Diego Chargers. First, the deadline for him to sign a contract and avoid possibly having to miss the first six games of the season passed. But there was also a report from Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune that another team had a one-year deal in place with Jackson, but that this team's offer to the Chargers was not up to their expectations.

Wednesday, Acee updated the situation, noting that a Special Master will weigh the suspension situation. The NFLPA argues that if Jackson is traded, his Roster Exempt status with the Chargers should no longer apply, and he'll only have to serve the three games doled out by the league in connection with his DWI arrest. In theory, a voiding of the three-game roster exempt status would increase Jackson's value to any potential trade partner, thus the compensation coming back to San Diego.

Then again, if another team is only "renting" Jackson for a maximum of 13 regular season games, they might not be as willing to part with a bevy of draft picks as they would if a long-term deal was in play. The speculation has been that the Chargers want at least a third-round pick, because if Jackson wound up signing elsewhere next offseason, they would get a compensatory pick at the end of the third round next April.

As far as interested teams, the St. Louis Rams appear to be slinking out of the mix, with the Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings and Washington Redskins remaining as the most logical destinations, although Cole adds the Cleveland Browns to the mix.

AFC East = overrrrrrated

Jets are going to blow. They were 9-7 last year and people are talking about them reaching the Super Bowl. No sir. Revis will be rusty, they'll miss Thomas Jones, Leon Washington, and Allen Faneca more than people will admit.

And Mark Sanchez will be a bust. Those NY expectations are going to hit him hard when he's throwing more picks than TDs this year.

"Good point dude.":

from moe,
I wonder if K Barnes could make a similar adjustment---I'd rather have a young guy with cornerback speed and cover skills playing FS than Horton or Doughty.

I would've made sense in a way that's more than just a unique perspective: had K Barnes been converted to FS, the team could've kept J Tyron and been able to effectively carry 5 corners--a necessity in a passing league--with one playing FS.

(And for right now, we really don't what to make of journeyman cornerback P Buchanon. So why not keep Tyron around?)

Of course, it would've meant the release of some other player in the secondary (Doughty? Horton?), but I think a team is better to err on having more corners over safeties anyways.

Totally disagree. That was a preseason series of posts anyway. Zeke sticks to a single post when he does his weekly assessments.

And in between the political BS, body function comments, yo mama jokes, various insults and other non-Redskin related chatta up in here, an insightful once-a-season series of posts chock full of football analysis is a more than welcome contribution to the board in my view.

Hey, their turnover machine could have been our turnover machine for a couple of 1st rounders. Let's look at Snyder's (Vinny's?) love interests from yesteryear:


Jim Fassel - coaching the UFL’s Las Vegas Locos
Jay Cutler - threw league-high 26 INTs in Denver
Mark Sanchez - threw 20 INTs/12 TDs in NY

Shanny: It's basically about demostrating to the coaches in practice and in meetings that they are ready and prepared to play. He also pushed some of the responsibility to Haslet. He said he needs to be in great shape. And he needs to learn how to adjust, but it doesn't happen over night.....

What I don't get is how "experts and analysts" have relied so much on Dallas' returning roster and ignoring the injuries on their offensive line and how FLAT they were when the starters were playing in every preseason game.

http://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2010/09/10/four-analysts-four-questions-nfc-east/

Its like everyone is doing this. Just like everyone thought that Vikings were going to be good again based on their returning roster (and ignoring the fact that Favre hasn't practiced in the preseason and injuries to their secondary) ... with a TD catch held onto and two made field goals, the Saints would have CLUBBED the Vikings last night (27-9). The game I watched looked more like a 27-9 game than a 14-9 game.

Plus, F Dallas.

"..new thread on shanahan presser and AH."


Some questions we'd like answered that won't be answered:

Will B Banks give us some 'Wildcat' love?

Is S Moss also in the mix to return kicks?

Which receiver will start opposite S Moss, Galloway, or camp fav AA?

Has J Beck absorbed your offensive system?

Give us your honest opinion about A Carter playing OLB.

If you were scouting the redskins D, which player would you attack and why?

Young or Sellars: who starts at fullback?

Is Donovan almost or completely healthy?

Be honest, is your offensive line better than your defensive line?

Who calls plays Sunday, you or Kyle?

Who makes game time decisions Sunday, you or Jim Haslett?

(No, we know you aren't Steve Spurrier, and sorry for hinting you weren't gonna manage the game.)

Will there be some point in the season where you might suggest to J Haslett that the team revert to 4-3 looks to make the best use of personnel?

We know you like to run the ball.

But with some high-flying passing/scoring teams (Indy/Houston/Dallas) front-loaded on the schedule, will you open up the passing game early on?

Pick a 2010 record: 6-10? 7-9? 8-8? 9-7?

You say 8-8, but think 9-7 is doable?

Thanks, sir.

That was the only question we wanted answered anyways.

Maybe more people think like Vinny than we realize. They'll blame Romo when he's getting drilled in the back every other play.

Posted by: Alan4 | September 10, 2010 3:24 PM | Report abuse

Gotta say that Zeke's post was well written and well thought out. although I don't completely agree with some of his projections, it was a welcome read. if its too manifesto for you, skip over it. That said, Poopy remains a welcome read as well and the Fat Al colonoscopy updates are fantastic.

As excited as I am for the season to start, and as desperately as I want the Skins to return to glory, I can't shake the feeling that we are in for more of the same. I think back to Michael Westbrook submarining a season with a dumb penalty, Gus' headbutt and Archuleta-Lloyd-other assorted free agent disappointments and the one thing that jumps out at me is the lack of depth on the o-line. A deep and effective o-line hides all kinds of other deficiencies and we still do not have one imho.

I think we beat Dallas, but my outlook for the season remains 7-9.
