Only Trent Williams is limited in practice

Thursday's injury report was a promising one for the Redskins, with only left tackle Trent Williams (toe) listed as limited at practice. The Packers, on the other hand, have several players nursing injuries entering Sunday's game.

The only other Redskins included on the report practiced fully on Thursday, including quarterback Donovan McNabb (thigh), guard Kory Lichtensteiger (knee), safety LaRon Landry (wrist) and safety Chris Horton (ankle).

As for the Packers, they have several big question marks. Six players missed practice Thursday, one of whom -- safety Morgan Burnett -- already has been ruled out of Sunday's game
.
Linebacker Nick Barnett (wrist) and tackle Mark Tauscher (shoulder) were among those who missed practice, and both could be missing a lot more than Sunday's game, according to news reports Thursday.

Also missing practice Thusday in Green Bay: linebacker Brandon Chillar, fullback Quinn Johnson (glute) and cornerback Sam Shields (calf). Safety Nick Collins (knee) and cornerback Charles Woodson (toe) were limited.

Question: why did MS go with LJ over LT when he was assembling his old farts RB brigagde? He knew LT from his days in the Bronc's division and surely knew LT had more left in the tank than LJ and was in better shape. Was it because he didn't want to bring in a real threat to CP? If so, it wasn't a very smart decision on his part was it? I mean if CP would not have liked it, tough turds. An objective observer might even have said that LT had more in the tank than CP, which turned out to be true.

Broncos break off contract talks with Champ Bailey until offseason
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on October 7, 2010 5:19 PM ET
A report surfaced in the Denver Post this week that the Broncos and cornerback Champ Bailey had renewed talks on a long-term contract.

According to Bailey's agent Jack Reale, those talks didn't last long.

Josina Anderson of FOX 31 in Denver reports the Broncos broke off talks until the season is over.

"Apparently there won't be any further discussions about Champ's contract until at least after the season. This is not our choice. This is a choice by the Broncos. We'll respect that and move on if we have to," Real said.

Because of his age -- 32 -- Bailey's next contract will be tricky. He's earning $9.5 million this year and then will become a free agent. The Broncos, like the Patriots, probably aren't big fans of agents negotiating through the media.

"I am disappointed because I want to be here,'' Bailey told Mike Klis of the Denver Post. "We know that, they know that. What's the issue here, really?''

Waiting Guilty, I'm not sure why anyone would be waiting for Carlos Rogers to make another potentially game-sealing interception before taking some action against him.

At this point he's just adding to an already impressive list of dropped INTs at critical moments. I can't imagine more of a "huge game" drop than the one that would've saved our bacon in the Seattle playoff game, and that was four seasons ago (sigh).

Fart, 2 reasons why LT would never have signed here.

1. He wanted significantly more money than LJ, and got it from from NY. If you recall, we were trying to get out of the business of overpaying for veterans.

2. LT definitely wanted to go to a place where he could win and contend. Redskins are not that team. Conversely, LJ just wanted to go somewhere to play.

Vikings at Jets: Favre has been creaming his Wranglers for five years at the idea of playing with Randy Moss, so I fully expect him to throw it to Moss 70 times Monday night, and I fully expect the majority of those passes to be intercepted. Favre will also feel compelled to have a really big game to divert attention away from his small penis, which means he may force even more throws than usual. It could be a potentially horrifying display.

It's been a solid two months since Malcolm Kelly was placed on the injured reserve because of a hamstring injury.

So, you wonder is he healthy enough to play?

And then, you hate the 'injured reserve' concept.

With a graduated MLB-style injured reserve (15 days, 30 days, 45 days, 60 days), an NFL team could get a guy completely healthy and take him off the shelf to play in season.

(Yes: we know that the rule came about to prohibit stashing players, but that's another issue.)

There is no logic to not allowing a player to perform in October because of an injury that came in July.

A different IR rule would allow Malcolm Kelly to practice and play at a time when the redskin team has an obvious need for a receiver opposite SMoss.

Not that MK is seen as some kind of savior, btw.

But that it makes no sense to hamstring a team's roster options by not allowing it access to all of the players under contract.

A different rule, maybe MK is in uniform Sunday presenting a different issue for the Packers' defense.

Now, it's just the redskin offense that has the issues.

While I agree with you, the team has 8 inactives every week, so that's the built in way to keep a player on short term IR.

I'd like to see a few spots for a short term IR, but I don't think it's as dire a situation as you make it out to be.

"Hey Moe, weren’t you up here in the preseason telling us that "Tomlinson is done” too?"


I do believe I'm on record for posting that Larry Johnson is done this past summer.

I don't remember posting the same chatta about LT.

If I did, I was wrong, obviously, and I'm man enough to admit the mistake in public.

I will point out one obvious difference with LT:

LaDanian Tomlinson is performing behind might be the league's best offensive line.

He also is playing with a coach who is committed to the run.

Two other 'older' backs who look good are Ricky Williams and Thomas Jones.

You have to ask yourself, is CP where those guys are, or is he in Fred Taylorland where he's just not the great dynamic back he used to be?

I think all the pass blocking added wear on CP's body it did not need.

I think he can still play in the NFL for a team with a great line that doesn't need him to pass block.

But is he done as a redskin?

I'd say, 'yes,' even if he's not done.

It just time for the franchise to move on, is all.

The redskin offense is being re-shaped with each passing week.

And that's not something neither you or I are wrong about and are happy to see.

Report: Pats, Chargers talking Vincent Jackson trade
Posted by Mike Florio on October 7, 2010 9:12 PM ET
So with receiver Randy Moss shipped from New England to Minnesota, the Patriots could use a receiver.

And amid reports that the Pats could be pulling a Randy Moss with Deion Branch, whom they traded away in 2006 and could re-acquire from the Seahawks, Tom Curran of CSNNE.com reports that the Patriots have "looked into the possibility" of trading for Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson.

Per Curran, preliminary discussions have involved the possibility of Jackson, an unsigned restricted free agent, being swapped for holdout guard Logan Mankins, another unsigned restricted free agent.

The asking price, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune (via Curran) is a second-round pick and a third-round pick for an NFC team, and a first-round pick and a second-round pick for an AFC team.

Curiously, any team could have signed Jackson to an offer sheet in March and April, giving up only a first-round pick and a third-round pick as compensation, if the Chargers had opted not to match.

Some stuff from the latest Keim offering (I started with #7 because the first 6 items are dealing with punters):

7. Left tackle Trent Williams (knee/toe) again was limited in practice and limped afterward, as he has the previous two weeks when finishing his work. But Shanahan sounded cautiously optimistic that Williams would play vs. Green Bay on Sunday. “If he keeps on improving like he has over the last two days, he’ll be able to go,” Shanahan said. If I had to guess, I’d say Williams plays. He was still limping after practice (though not before).


8. Brian Orakpo is not keeping up with Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews, Jr., when it comes to sacks as Matthews has seven sacks to Orakpo’s two. However, Orakpo is having a big impact rushing the passer simply because of the five holding penalties he’s drawn. Orakpo is terrific getting into the blocker’s chest and then dipping around the edge, a combination of strength and speed. Orakpo could have a good game this week as Green Bay LT Chad Clifton has struggled vs. power rushers this season.

9. Green Bay is banged up. The Packers already have lost rookie safety Morgan Burnett. But five other players didn’t practice today, including right tackle Mark Tauscher, and two others were limited, including CB Charles Woodson (toe) and safety Nick Collins (knee). This is a good time to get them. I think.

10. LB Lorenzo Alexander played two seasons with Aaron Rodgers at Cal. “I never got to hit him in practice,” Alexander said. “Hopefully I can get after him a little bit.”

11. This is sort of cool. Alexander said of the hit in Philly: “You normally don’t hear nothing when you’re playing, but I heard, ‘oooooo’ by the whole crowd. It’s a great feeling.”

12. Alexander is no longer on punt return duty, a nod to his increased role from scrimmage. But he’s still on the coverage units. One thing I have to say about Alexander; the guy hasn’t changed one bit since he came here. Always humble; always willing to do whatever; always gracious with his time. Good to see guys like that rewarded.

11. This is sort of cool. Alexander said of the hit in Philly: “You normally don’t hear nothing when you’re playing, but I heard, ‘oooooo’ by the whole crowd. It’s a great feeling.”

Clinton Portis heard that 'oooooo' and thought they were looking at his package.

beep, A.J. will confirm what we already know if he passes on that trade...I mean, Mankins is widely regarded as the best guard in football and if you can get him straight up for a less than dominant WR that won't play for you anyway, that's a HUGE coup...especially considering their O-line is far from stout. If I'm Dean Spanos, I'm watching what this clown does with this offer REAL close...

Power rankings have to be the most lame thing ever associated with sports...

Posted by: brownwood26 | October 8, 2010 5:55 AM

Could you give us a power ranking of the power rankings? I mean, yeah, they're lame but could you rank them from most lame to least lame? Peter King has us at #13 and the Cowboys at 15, so maybe he's least lame? I'd always rank Dr. Z as most lame and since his stroke, he probably really is most lame.

Other lame things from the NFL that might be considered for "most lame thing associated with sports":

1. Pink gloves, towels for breast cancer awareness
2. Super Bowl hoopla
3. Annual Pro Bowl
4. HOF Game
5. Fourth pre-season game
6. Coin toss ritual
7. 2/3's of the TV broadcast personalities
8. Indoor stadiums and artificial turf
9. Jason Reid's reporting
10. Most of the posts on RI, including this one

Did I miss something? I assume Clinton Portis was limited at practice.
