LaRon Landry, Ryan Torain out of Vikings game
On Monday, Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said injured strong safety LaRon Landry was "98 percent" likely to sit out Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings at FedEx Field.
The number increased to 100 percent Thursday as Shanahan announced Landry would miss his second game in as many weeks because of an Achilles' tendon injury. And with no timetable for Landry's return to the lineup, his status for the final five games is in question as well.
"Well, you know, we'd love to have him back," Shanahan said. "And, hopefully, he gets better here very quickly. But right now, it's too sore. He's going through some treatment.
"Hopefully, we can get him back. But if not, as we talked about before, those things do happen. Guys will have to pick up the pace."
In addition to Landry, second-year back Ryan Torain (hamstring) also has been ruled out against the Vikings, Shanahan said. Rookie back Keiland Williams will start for the second time. Barring injury or unforeseen circumstances, former practice squad back James Davis will be active as well.
Center Casey Rabach (knee), right guard Artis Hicks (thigh), backup guard Derrick Dockery (knee), linebacker Rocky McIntosh (knee) and linebacker Lorenzo Alexander (hamstring) all participated in practice to some extent. Shanahan said he would have a better idea of their status for Sunday after reviewing film of practice.
