Landry, Rogers, Moore are hurting

By Barry Svrluga

Redskins strong safety LaRon Landry did not practice again Thursday because of a nagging Achilles' tendon injury and starting free safety Kareem Moore also has been limited this week by a knee problem, putting further strain on Washington's already thin secondary.

Cornerback Carlos Rogers, who has missed two of the past three games with hamstring issues, also missed practice again Thursday.

"As a coaching staff, you can't worry about who you have," defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said. "You just got to kind of coach the guys you've got."

Coach Mike Shanahan said Moore had his right knee, which was originally injured in the preseason, drained earlier in the week.

"It was a little sore, and so we're keeping an eye on it," Shanahan said. "He's not getting as many reps as he did before, but I think we'll be OK."

Should Moore be unable to go, it's possible second-year safety Victor "Macho" Harris - signed just last month after he was cut by Philadelphia in the preseason - could be the starter. Reed Doughty, who filled in for Moore early in the year, already is replacing Landry at strong safety.

"He's getting better," Haslett said of Harris. "He might need to play. He needs to catch up with everything fast, but we'll play the guys that are healthy...We'll keep it simple for him, make sure he's in the right spot. Hopefully we don't screw it up."

Haslett said that, should Landry and Rogers miss Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, the club might need to consider putting one or both on season-ending injured reserve next week. Shanahan, though, said he is still holding out hope they could play against the Buccaneers. They would have to practice Friday and go through a hard workout on Saturday, performing well at both, Shanahan said.

"It all depends on how close they are," Shanahan said about placing either player on IR. "They both feel like they can come back, even this week. If they can't come back the following week, that's always part of the conversation."

Shanahan said running back Ryan Torain, who hasn't played since suffering a hamstring injury Oct. 31 at Detroit, was able to practice fully and looks like he'll be able to play Sunday.

"He hasn't favored the leg in any way," Shanahan said.

I really would like to see Macho play.

He was great at VT.

Speaking of VT, what do ya'll think about Tyrod as a QB in the NFL.

He has improved every year.

Put Landry on IR and live to fight another day.

I hink wih the success of Vick, Taylor will get serious consideration in the early rounds.

-

I'm sick of the post saying doughty replaced Moore. Moore has never done shut. Doughty started way more games and is much more reliable though not as athletically gifted. Moore is the most over rated skin this year. I understand the hope, but in reality dude has done nothing.

Tough call on Landry.

If you IR him, does it also DQ him from the Pro Bowl?

Don't know his contract situation, but tend to think there may be significant incentive clause money in play here. Could the prospect of bonus money for Pro Bowl selection somehow "skew" the decision process?

Would hate to see the Dude really hurt and lost for a much longer time over a dumb exhibition game / incentive clause / few not-so-measly bucks.

IR Landry - We know what we've got there and we'll need him next year.

IR Rogers - We know what we've got there and he's free to walk next year.

Use the open roster spots for some auditions.


P.S. - We're gonna get killed by the Bucs.

Well no worries, 'cause I suspect Shanny has the final word on the draft, not BA.

Of course, that doesn't exactly give me comfort either.

Vic1, LaRon is on the Pro Bowl ballot, so you don't have to worry about his eligibility to receive that dubious honor.

I'm sure they will.

Right now they are going through the obligatory motions of making it look like they are not entirely mailing it in this season by putting their better players on the shelf.

But we could really use the open roster spots to audition some guys...we need alot of auditioning at alot of positions...

If there is some real risk of Landry tearing his Achilles, not sure how you can put him out there.

As for Rogers, play him when his hammy is OK.

fwiw, I would never start playing 2nd tier guys to figure out about next year until the team was mathematically eliminated -- it sends a terrible message. We aren't there -- yet.

He has incentives both for making the Pro Bowl and for the number of tackles he makes. So, he does want some more time on the field. Doubt that he gets IR'd. Oh, and FU2, bama mo-fo doosh.

That's what I was saying in my post about going through the obligatory motions.

These guys are going to sit out practice and be game-day scratches on Sunday.

After we lose to the Bucs - which should mathematically eliminate us I think - they will get put on IR.

As a SJ Sharks fan, loved the game last night. Stirring comeback from down 4-1. Tie it up and go to OT -- the last minute is 3 on 3 hockey with an incredible finish.

Check out the video review of that final 0.1 second, where the puck doesn't cross the goal line in time.

I've had enough of all the rubbing up on each other and the apple polishing-my beloved skins are again mired in another disgusting era.One bad move and bad draft after another.'oh please,Lord..give us Shanahan,and his winning body of work..'This team is cut out of the same cloth as all the losers in the league.I'm sick to my soul of the placating and excuses..'give us time'/'new system'/'new regime'.STOP THE MADNESS,we are broken,you pitiful souls that chime like timid birds are wishful and pathetic..go check the injury report,or get hit by a train...I could care less
