Landry, Rogers walk through but do not practice

By Barry Svrluga

Redskins strong safety LaRon Landry and cornerback Carlos Rogers, both of whom have been out of the lineup for most of the last month, were well enough to participate in a walk-through on Wednesday morning but did not practice in the afternoon.

"We didn't push them through practice today," Coach Mike Shanahan said. "We kept them out, so I'll get a chance, a good feeling tomorrow exactly where they're at, if there's any setback. But it was encouraging they were out there through walk-through."

Landry, who has an Achilles' tendon injury, last played Nov. 15 against Philadelphia. Rogers has missed two of the past three games with hamstring issues.

Shanahan said running back Ryan Torain was "full-go" during Wednesday's practice, and could play Sunday against Tampa Bay. Torain has missed the past four games because of a hamstring injury originally suffered Oct. 31 at Detroit. Offensive tackle Trent Williams, who sat out most of last week's game against the New York Giants with a shoulder injury he suffered when he tripped at his home, also was not limited in Wednesday's workout and should be able to play Sunday.

It seems like the media don't even care we just got blown out


True.

I think the real story to date is that the team seems to sliding backwards interms of performance and execution on both sides of teh ball.

The AH Saga is just a pimple on a rather unattractive face when you see the 2010 Washington Redskins.

Sd thing is, I'd rather read Shanny's feelings about the offense and defense than the other stuff.

Not sure what i did. All i did was point out that AH is our best Dlineman. And so far really no one has disagreed with me, just got all mad at me...

You went against the RI shmoozers, who fall for Danny's off-season championships EVERY YEAR.

Trainers and equipment staff should earn their money this week -- but only to stretch out and dress 45 players to take the field on what is setting up to be a cold and rainy Sunday afternoon at FEDEX Field.

Would also think such weather would call for a long possession hit, run and grind it out game -- that is, if we had one.

anybody else a little more than curious about williams' "shoulder injury he suffered when he tripped at his home"?

Apologies for the double post -- damn movable type.

.....and if you've been paying attention, they are already cutting-pasting their lists of other team's used to be players we should give a bundle of money to next Spring.

I just used the playoff predictor on the link below and manipulated it so that the 'skins win the division as the 3rd ranked team.

The last flicker of hope. There are multiple scenarios with 'skins making the playoffs if they win out and there are a number of teams tied at 9-7.

Of course they have to win all their games and there are multiple scenarios in which even if they did win out they would miss out.

Boy, are you sure right about this. I didn't expect any more than 8-8 or so this year, but I did expect to see improvement in terms of proper execution and discipline, and it has been terrible on both sides of the ball, for the most part. Shanny, despite his reputation as a taskmaster, doesn't seem to have made these guys a more fundamentally sound team than they were. Except for McNabb's ability to hit the deep ball to Armstrong (which has kept us in a few games this year), which is something JC couldn't or at least didn't do very often, I can't say that any one area of play has improved from last season.

KS "Uhhh, Dad he is one of the best come-from-behind QB's in the history of the NFL...".

Posted by: onanygivensunday | December 8, 2010 2:18 PM

Really? One of the best of all time? I don't think so. He's not bad but he is hardle one of the best of all time.

================
Never said "all time".....but, in the history of the NFL, he is near the top.

And he does have more come-from-behind wins of any other ACTIVE NFL QB other than Favre. And I would guess it puts him near the top of all NFL QBs to ever play.
Which makes it all the more idiotic and egotistical for Shanahan to bench him at the most critical time in the game. I would say both Shanahans lost a great deal of respect and trust from the players when that occurred. Especially when they could not get on the same page as to why it was done.. And the Redskin player's "no-comments" in the locker room to the media after the game, when asked,....said volumes. Just like their uninspired performance on the field since Detroit. The difference is almost like two separate teams when you compare before Detroit and after. Up to the point, the team morale was high and they were embracing McNabb as their leader with a winning record against formidable teams. In my opinion, Shanahan de-railed it with that one move.. The team has since played comatose, like they dont care about the season or the coaches.
Bottom-line, Putting Rex in was an insane move, in a winnable game, by an "out of touch" control-freak head coach..
Shanny should step down and preserve his legacy... John Elway is not walking through that door (at least not a young John Elway).

People, people, people. Do you not watch and understand football??? First, let me state that I have tried to stay away from the insider this year because of the negativity that oozes from this forum, but I have waded back in over the past few weeks, ooze and all just to see how folks were responding to a season full of bad football luck.

1. Yes the team has regressed over the past few weeks. But what team wouldn't when your starting, back-up, and back-up to the back-up running backs all went down with injuries? I know everyone wants to blame Shanny for bringing in retread running backs, but can you blame him for wanting to try and catch lightning in a bottle??? What other option did he have? The draft? keep Rock and Betts?

2. How good can the team be when 75% of your secondary has missed time for injuries??? Again I know Buchannon was a reach, but what other options are there???

3. This mess is going to take 3 seasons before we can compete for the NFC. It is a slow process that Shanny tried to speed up by seeing IF some of the retreads had any life left. But it didn't work and now we are moving ahead with auditions and the youth movement for the upcoming seasons. Look between the lines and see how much younger we have become over the course of the season.

Yes I was upset with the team after the Ram game...but I realized that I was more upset with myself for being sucked into the belief that the team was going to compete. We need to rebuild and probably get worse before we get better (see Rams, Lions, and Chiefs). I don't care about records this year and next. I care about seeing new faces and watching the team get better and compete.

We have some pieces...be patient.

However (comma) if we go all money happy in Free Agency and trade away our draft, disregard all the above.

Hail to the Redskins...someone hide Danny's debit card.

All of your points about injuries could have been made last year as well... Portis out, Cooley out, Moss hammies, O-line changing every game....

With all due respect, I've seen this play before. The names have changed, but the story is the same.

Bad football luck??? Seriously, you're kidding, right? Chris Johnson couldn't run behind our O line. Manning or Brady couldn't QB behind that same line. No holes to run through, no protection. The last time we were really, really good, we had The Hogs. Look at New England, Jets, Steelers.....great O lines. That's not luck. And our D has been unlucky too, right? We're freaking last in the NFL!!! Come on man.....wake the hell up.

Sham-ahans' hand picked boy from Denver is always ready during the week. But as soon as he looks at the competition on gameday....he all of a sudden CAN'T GO! LMAO

Nice job coach with the talent you have selected for my team.

Maybe you should play London Fletcher at RB, he's always active and won't mind changing positions for the team.
