LaRon Landry, Ryan Torain out of Vikings game

By Jason Reid

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.

I like the idea of getting Montgomery coached up to replace Rabach for the balance of the season. Old men just can't play an entire season, sorry and thanks to Mr. Portis.

Like the train, dude runs hard, but he just can't stay healthy. With all the holes this team has, can you keep a guy that won't give you 16 games much less 18?

Thanks and big-ups to DeAngelo and the whole offensive line, Hall did warrior's work with an injured back shutting down Randy, as well as the O-Line playin' ballsout with injuries..And Thanks to All Yall Skins..

Everyone needs to check out Rodney Hudson

Gaurd from FSU expected to be a center.

Hell be gone beginning of 2nd round so maybe we trade back for him.

Our 2nd pick could be a bowling ball belly NT, think kevin williams, vince wilfork

Its not a damn shame, its a royal Shanny screw up. I made the call last week on RI -- have Portis put in 1 week of full speed practice before putting him out on the field. He wasn't close to that. I'm sure lots of others, just from reading the reports, realized he wasn't ready either

This is BS how long would you have liked for them to hold the spot all f-cking year. The doctors said he was ready and Portis wanted to play, they had to give it a go.

The injury requires 6 weeks to heal thats how long he was out, he didn't even re-injure the same spot it was higher on his body.

Every player this time of year has injuries and most of them play, if anything Shanny should have put him on IR when the injury first happened.

Zeke- except for the simple fact that it was an abdomen tear.

Coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday that the Washington Redskins running back will be placed on injured reserve with a torn muscle in the lower abdomen.

The NEW INJURY is just above the area of the torn left groin that caused Portis to miss five games. Portis returned from the groin injury for Sunday's game against Tennessee but lasted only five carries before getting hurt again.

Not buying it. Portis was not ready to go ... even Portis said he wasn't all the way back.

The injuries are related. Shanahan should have had CP prove he could go full speed for a week in practice before putting him a game. That is a long way from IR. Even if he'd be back and healthy after the Minny game -- another 2 weeks -- there'd still be 5 games left.

Portis is a valuable part of this team ... he shouldn't have been out there last Sunday, he wasn't ready.

Like the (Ryan Torain), dude runs hard, but he just can't stay healthy.


He's been out for about, what, a month?

Just the same, I'd like to see James Davis get some extended time Sunday.

Portis is a valuable part of this team ... he shouldn't have been out there last Sunday, he wasn't ready.

He might be valuable, but his having missed major parts of two seasons undercuts his worth.

It's time to disabuse ourselves of the notion that the offense needs Portis to prosper: how can it when he hasn't been healthy enough to be a factor?

Let's get James Davis and Keiland Williams rollin' Sunday.
