Redskins-Packers injury report: Trent Williams questionable, but expected to play

The Redskins have listed six players as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers: defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth, safety Chris Horton (ankle), safety LaRon Landry (wrist), guard Kory Lichtensteiger (knee), quarterback Donovan McNabb (thigh) and tackle Trent Williams (toe).

Shanahan said earlier Friday that he expected to Williams to play, though he wasn't as certain about Haynesworth.

Green Bay, meanwhile, has ruled out four players for Sunday's game: linebackers Nick Barnett (wrist) and Brandon Chillar (shoulder), fullback Quinn Johnson (glute) and cornerback Sam Shields. Starting right tackle Mark Tauscher (shoulder) is listed as doubtful. Rookie Bryan Bulaga will likely get his first career start if Tauscher isn't able to play.

No Packers were listed as questionable and their four injured defensive backs were all probable: safeties Nick Collins (knee), Derrick Martin (ankle) and Charlie Peprah (quadricep) and cornerback Charles Woodson (toe).

Comments

I like the possibility of Andre Carter going against a rookie in his first start. Bulaga was considered one of the better OT's in the draft, but I still think that is a matchup that favors the Skins.

Packers are completely overrated and decimated by injuries.

Aside from Rodgers, a really good WR corps, and a TE they have nothing. One dimensonal: Look for a cover 2 from the Skins to prevent the big play and Rodgers to get hit early and often playing behind a terrible OL and a suspect running game.

Their D has C Wood (HOF but hobbled), Cullen Jenkins, BJ Raji, & Clay Matthews. AJ Hawk hasn't lived up to his draft status and their D has also suffered multiple key injuries.

It's never easy for the Skins but they survive and Gano kicks the game winner as time expires.

I'll take a win no matter how it happens. HOWEVER, we now have adults in the FO and on the coaching staff and if Hunter is using anything besides his hands on XP/FGs and his foot then I'll start whining and crying about DTs playing time.

I can't think of a scenario for this game where we do not play a lot of nickel, and use a lot of creative blitz packages. If we use four down lineman, we get our best pass-rushing personnel on defense into their most effective positions; our 3-4 seems to lack the ability to get pressure without sacrificing coverage...especially against a good QB like Rodgers. That alone may get us enough pressure to at least not have to endure a Aaron Rodgers field-day where he passes for 350-400 yards. But most likely we are going to have to get pressure with blitzes from all over the field in order to harass the QB and hinder the spread offense, which we have struggled against (ie the St Louis game).

I see landry getting 10 or so plays for blitz packages that include his number. We also are probably going to see quite a few zone blitzes and stunts, which attempt to get Rodgers out of the pocket so Rak and Carter can race Rodgers to the sidelines. Our line and linebackers are going to have to come up big to stop the run well enough to force 3rd and long, because the db's are going to have their hands full. Haynesworth will have to get pressure up the middle and force runs to the other side of the line. Whether we get a lot sacks or not, we had better keep Rodgers running and the GB oline holding.

Sources: Two More Women Who Worked With Jets Received Lewd Texts From Favre

This is about to get worse. It appears Jenn Sterger wasn't the only woman who received unwanted and inappropriate text messages from Brett Favre while he played for the Jets. Favre also pursued two team massage therapists, according to one of the women.

The woman (who wishes to remain anonymous for now — we'll call her "Mandy") worked as a massage therapist for the team for a couple years, but she says never had an incident with a player until No. 4 showed up at training camp at Hofstra University, where the Jets still worked out in 2008. "He was on the table next to mine," she tells me. "He was looking at my ass the whole time while I worked on another player. He was ... ogling me."

The woman who was massaging Brett that day (massage therapist No. 2, or "Lindsay") exchanged numbers with him. (Mandy claims it's common for players to take the numbers of team-contracted massage therapists should they need additional rubdowns off campus. Yeah, I know. Please don't.)

Lindsay received a text message from Favre, according to Mandy. Lindsay assumed it was for a massage but quickly realized Brett was asking for more. He invited both Lindsay and Mandy back to his hotel room. Mandy claims that the texts became increasingly inappropriate ("just nasty stuff"), but she adds that Brett did apologize when he found out she was married.

This apology over text, however, wasn't enough for Mandy's husband. We'll call him "John".

"I called him on his phone and told him I wanted an apology. He acted all arrogant. He refused to apologize," John tells me in a phone conversation.

Mandy and John say they approached attorneys about the situation but were told that because Mandy was a private contractor, there were no grounds for a harassment case. They didn't pursue anything.

But, after reading the story in the New York Post this morning, they decided to come forward with their story. Mandy's husband John reached out both to Deadspin and the Post. They don't want to reveal their names just yet, John says, and they "don't want photographers on their front lawn." But they said they're still considering going public with it. First, they want to talk to the NFL and the Jets. They gave me permission to pass along their info to the team, which I did. If someone from the NFL wants to reach out to them, they'll talk to someone there, too.

Also? Mandy says she and Lindsay still have some of the text messages. Hooray.

"You were showered with condolences and sympathetic remarks and how you and your family were kept in regard for the time being."

You're putting words and ideas into a situation that are not there.

I never posted that I didn't care that Albert Haynesworth's brother is dead.

But I do say it's ironic that for months he shunned the same team mates who now extend him condolences.

That the same coach he dismissed is now in a position where he must extend respect and condolences and allow him to miss a game in order to take care of a delicate personal matter.

That is all karma of the highest order, in my mind.

My point is that the whole situation might spin Albert Haynesworth around and make him a better player and person--something other bloggers have duly noted.

I am not so heartless that I can neither commiserate or condole.

But I am heartless enough to point out that AH's situation is instructive to anyone who thinks his relationships/obligations don't matter.

Until they do.

Indeed.

And I like how in the face of personnel issues and performance that is wanting, Jim Haslett has tinkered with his scheme to play what suits the people he has best.

Greg Blache, by contrast, lined up the same 11 guys in the same defensive sets, and balked at the idea of change--at least as it was offered by Jason Taylor and Albert Haynesworth.

I believe our defense will be better late in the season than it is now because of this.

Agreed.

But I'd say we should all follow the pattern.

1st, the veteren is given ample time to produce.

(Maybe the thinking from the coaches is that the older guy can at least set a precedant or 'show the way' for the kid backing him up.)

Then, when he shows he truly can not, the younger player is slowly inserted into his spot.

That's happened with Dockery, Hicks, Johnson, and Carter.

And I have a sense that sometime around mid season, we'll see DT on the field in some capacity.

And RWilliams on the unemployment line.

C'mon Diez. It's advantage Pack and it doesn't have to do with just stats.

Arm-strength - push
Accuracy - Rodgers
Decision-making - push
Makes plays with feet - push
Chemistry w/ teammates - Rodgers
Command of the offense - Rodgers
Leadership - push

Rodgers has much better command of his offense having been in it for 3 years and knowing what his teammates excel at within that offense. McNabb is still learning. Plus, you never know if Dirtball McNabb is going to show up for a couple of drives.

If you are looking at overall career accomplishments, then certainly McNabb has the edge.

If you are looking at Skins v. Pack this Sunday, Rodgers has the edge.

Haslett is going to unchain the dogs on Green Bay and dare Rodgers to come up with an answer for it. I would just stack up blitzers on the rookie tackle's side, blitz through the hole left by the tight end (he's a pass catcher, not a blocker, so you know that's a free path to the QB).

"Redskins cut WR Devin Thomas. Hoped we could make a trade but guess not."

what took so long ? DT11 will never make it in the NFL. 2008 draft class has yet to make an impact across the board. thanks Cerrato and $nyder.

I think that interview he did with Lavar and Dukes got him cut. Crazy.

"I think Hunter the Punter throws a TD to make the winning score 24-20."

You're suggesting a little special teams trickeration?

I agree.

Especially in the 3rd quarter at mid field where a fake punt might extent a drive or fake field goal attempt might result in a score/first down.

Too, you have to hope Banks has a couple of stellar returns to shorten the field.

But above all, we must run, run, run at the packers and throw the ball to our tight end or wide receiver crossing in the middle of the field.

It's too bad DT never put it together. He had 2+ yrs to show something and besides 1 game against a the Saints 3rd team DBs, he didn't.

I don't revel in being right about him being cut, it's just too bad his physical gifts didn't translate to the field.

Do you guys think the DT move is a Shanahan cut Sat. Re-sign Tues. move?

He's become quite fond of this strategy. It's pretty smart since it reduces the likelihood anyone would sign him so close to gameday.

Or are we just cutting bait on yet another Vinny C. masterpiece?

Discuss.

We all saw glimpses of what DT could do last year. He had some nice games for us. We'll never know why Shanny hated him so much to not even give him a chance.

That draft class is the biggest failure ever. Thanks again Vinny! Who's left.. oh Malcolm Kelly who will never see the field.

"DT11 will never make it in the NFL."


Maybe, maybe not.

But I bet he spends some time bouncing around from camp to camp before that verdict is reached.

Too, you know like I do, some team will look at at a 6' 2" receiver with 4.3 speed, design a simple package of plays for him to digest, and give him a shot during a game or two.

After all, that was the most Shanny could've done before kicking Thomas to the curb.

But for now, Fred Davis is the next Class of '08 member on the clock....

Keiland will take DT's roster spot.

Best of luck to you DT! Not against us though.

agree moe, Fd has yet to prove himself, and I'll say this year so we don't have all the bleeding hearts posting last years stats.

SHOW ME SOMETHING THIS YEAR !

yes, we did. We saw glimpses that he was not even close to ready to play in this league.

He had 1 good game against a depleted NO team. how long are we going to hang our hats on that 1 game? Which really was 2 good plays if I remember correctly.

Shanahan does not hate the kid, he just does not believe he can contribute on this team.

Can we all just move on now?

Watch the packers pick up DT tonight and come up with a whole new game plan.

But if him scoring 6 TDs last season in games that counted wasn't enough to get him on the field some this year, how can he show anybody anything from the bench.

Posted by: lilhollywood10 | October 9, 2010 2:19 PM | Report abuse

Keep Williams on the bench. I don't need to see the Skins' Left-Tackle-of-the-Future needing knee surgery in his rookie season so the Skins can go 7-9 instead of 6-10.
