Redskins-Titans injury report: Torain out, Portis expected to play

By Rick Maese

As expected, running back Ryan Torain (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Tennessee, according to the final injury report of the week, and eight other Redskins have been listed as questionable.

The Titans have ruled out receiver Kenny Britt (hamstring) and tight end Craig Stevens (knee).

Listed as questionable for Washington: receiver Brandon Banks (knee), tackle Jammal Brown (head), defensive end Kedric Golston (elbow), guard Artis Hicks (thigh), defensive end Jeremy Jarmon (hamstring), safety LaRon Landry (Achilles), running back Clinton Portis (groin) and cornerback Carlos Rogers (hamstring).

Coach Mike Shanahan said Friday that he expected Portis, Banks and Brown to play Sunday. Jarmon was the only questionable player to sit out Friday's practice entirely.

Our boys are 7 point dogs this week. Considering our injuries, the fact that we're really just not very good, and playing on the road following a MNF game that gives us a very short week, I'd say we would be very lucky to cover 7 points. I'm thinking a double digit loss on Sunday.

That's a good one. You've been bringing d1ck to the blog for a while now. The only thing that came unraveled today was your little sock puppet routine with monk811 when you pulled that rookie-move "look we both posted at the same time" stunt.

If I'm wrong, I'll gladly apologize. I've apologized for being wrong several times up here. But, the way I see it you're the one who "owes an apology." What I expect, though, is a heavy dose of your usual juvenile name calling and some faked indignation like this post.

Did anyone see the fake Nike uniform designs, the Skins uniform is wild.

http://www.myfoxdc.com/dpp/sports/leaked-nfl-nike-uniform-sketches-are-fake-111910

This is from Nike brass:

According to Nike, NFL fans should still expect noticeable changes for uniforms in 2012, whenever the real uniform designs are released.

Nike's brand president Charlie Denson told CNBC's Darren Rovell: "We plan on changing the NFL jersey dramatically just like we've done with the college programs, using new thinking and the greatest technology available. The NFL program hasn't had the same type of advancement in recent years."

I on the other hand believe we will bottle up superstar Chris, turn Albert loose on an injured QB staff, and walk into a one point victory. Titans do not like to face the 3-4. Vince is a better passer than I thought but can be confused. See Wonderlich 6, Vince 0

Not sure what this was about, but Rock has been a beast on ST for Oak.

Had blocked punt vs SD and you can see him (#25) making a key block on this TD return. Both games were close wins for Oak, so his teams play has been quite meaningful.

There are better games to bet on bro. I never wager on/against the Skins, there's already enough homer emotions on the line.

If the Skins have any amount of pride I expect them to come out against the Titans pissed-off and swinging. Should be a very competitive game, NO dd blowout.

1st 8 games 2009

JG - 9 for 141

Last 8 games 2009 (injured for last 2 games)
DT - 18 for 254, 2 TD

I was curious

Curious?

1st 8 games 2010
AA - 20 for 451 22.6 76 Long 1 TD

That's 6 more yards than DT has in his career and that's with 34 games played and why are you comparing BACK UPS like JG and RW to the pathetic numbers that DT put up as the #2 starter.

How about this.

1st 8 games 2010
DT- 0 for 0, 0 TDs

Blame Shanahan all you want but three coaching staffs have determined that DT can't play. Feel free to research the long list of WRs and KRs that DT has been unable to beat out for playing time.

Figure we'll see Clinton for about three plays -- before he limps off with yet another phantom injury, and the balance of his guaranteed $8 million. Dude should have retired about two years and $15 million ago.

Former Redskins and University of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan was injured in a car accident Friday in Hawaii, according to KHON2 in Honolulu.

The vehicle Brennan was in reportedly crossed the center line and hit another vehicle head on. He was reportedly taken to a hospital in serious condition. Two others were airlifted to the hospital.

Thoughts and prayers for Colt

Posted by: croftonpost | November 19, 2010 10:56 PM | Report abuse

Former University of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan was hospitalized today in Kona with head trauma, several broken ribs and a broken left clavicle after being involved in a two-car accident on the Big Island.

His father, Terry Brennan, told the Star-Advertiser this afternoon that his son is listed in stable condition. Colt Brennan was sedated after being transported from the Big Island to Oahu at about 4 p.m. today.

"We're upset," Terry Brennan said. "We're hopeful all of the victims are OK. This is our worst nightmare. You always worry about safety, whether you're in Hawaii or on the mainland."

Police confirmed this afternoon that Brennan was a passenger in an SUV driven by Shakti Stream, 27, of Kona. It was traveling north on Queen Kaahumanu Highway near the 90-mile marker at about 9:30 a.m. It crossed the center line and collided head-on with a Saab sedan.

A fire department official at the scene said Brennan was stuck in the vehicle and that Stream had managed to crawl out. Both were taken to Kona Community Hospital in serious condition. The driver of the Saab, a 47-year-old Waikoloa woman whose identity the police did not release, was taken to North Kohala also in serious condition.

The highway was temporarily closed and re-opened at about 11:15 a.m.

Poiice have opened two negligent injury investigations. The exact cause of the crash is still under investigation. It is undetermined at this time if speed, alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash.

Brennan has been spending time on the Big Island after being released by the Oakland Raiders this summer. Last month, he had an exploratory workout with the Houston Texans.

Brennan, a record-setting quarterback for the Warriors, was drafted in the sixth round by the Washington Redskins in the 2008 National Football League Draft.

After undergoing four surgeries, he was released by the Redskins before the start of training camp this summer.

*sigh*

Why do I even bother?

Diesel, FIRST of all, nobody on the coaching staff said Thomas couldn't play. They said he didn't "fit the scheme," which nobody bought.

My guess is the video, others think it's the salon manicure... whatever, he's not Shannies' type of guy. Fine. But they never said he couldn't play and in fact, we have WITNESSED him playing and playing well in the past, INCLUDING THIS YEAR.

Nextly, by your logic, Randy Moss is worse than all the receivers, practice squad, included, that the Minnesota Vikings have. Of course, we know differently. He got cut because he insulted a caterer and he was basically an idiot and the coach didn't like him for various reasons.

DT can play, but, for whatever reason, coaches don't seem to like him. Maybe because he brags too much, maybe because he's too into the "entertainment" aspect. I don't know. I would bet my nuts he'd destroy Joey Galloway's performance thus far this year. Guarantee it.

Football is REAL political, Diesel. The best guys often don't make it onto the field. You've seen enough this year to know that, right? C'mon.

When Thomas plays we'll all see what we've already seen. If he doesn't ever play again, it will only be because he didn't apply himself and gave up on football. Which, by the way, I totally understand.

There's an aspect to being treated like a child when you're being coached. Many guys who have other interests or appreciate being treated as a man, guys who take care of them selves, have a family, don't get into trouble... they don't like being told when to jump and how high for no reason.

Many coaches will pull nonsense to test your dedication. If your dedication stops where your honor and self respect begins, well, you may not "fit the scheme."

Just saying. Stop blurting BS when we've seen, only a couple months ago, the opposite. Coaches like their asses kissed as much as anybody. I make exception for Gibbs. The best coach ever. Bar none. He'd have Thomas' afflicted ass out there, you'd better believe it. Shanny's ego is too frail. He can't hang with talent. he needs affirmation. Like a punk beatch.

And P F'king S:

zcezcest1 is turning into a Raiders fan before our eyes.

I don't blame him a bit. They're a young, scrappy team with a psycho coach and 2 decent QBs. They could go. I'm not BSing.

If I were Cable, I'd bring Gradkowski in if the pass rush was getting through. If not, I'd leave Campbell in.

I'd have those two working in tandem, like with a relief pitcher or a closer, whatever the situation may be.

I'd name Campbell the starter each week and tell Grad to get ready early.

A Win Win, if you ask me.

I'm with you zcezcest1, Glad we dumped Rock and Ladell so we could make room for Larry Johnson and Willie Parker

By the way, Keiland Williams is real gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Who knows? Maybe Thomas got all homophobic in the locker room. You just never know. I wouldn't put it past an immature person to make comments during showers, though.

I'm not sure I'd be comfortable showering with Keiland Williams, now that I think about it. Can I wear a bathing suit? Cause that would be fine.

Posted by: Thinker_ | November 20, 2010 2:17 AM | Report abuse

Ha!! Not a Raiders fan, but I live in the area. Really can't stand Al Davis, but I would like to see Jason Campbell succeed. I'm all in on the Sharks. Was there about 3 weeks ago when Murray destroyed Chipchura -- talk about a wounded duck -- ref actually had to help the guy to the bench.

http://video.sharks.nhl.com/videocenter/console Oct 30 game

Anyway, I was pretty much in agreement with that 10 person purge Shanny did when he got here. Some guys needed to go (including Betts, Smoot), others were overpaid (ARE). Rock was the one guy that made sense to keep -- not expensive, played virtually on all teams and was OK in an emergency RB role. Guys like Rock will always find a home as long as they're willing to take the minimum $$ and do the odd jobs.

Will the running game get going and keep the chains moving? Will it stall and put the offense in a slew of 3rd downs it can't convert? Who knows?

Will Donovan McNabb get benched for Rex Grossman? Who knows?


This team has yet to establish an identity in Week 11 and show that it can do anything consistently.

The Skins gave Rock his only FA contract when he hit the market. No one in the league wanted to give him bupkiss and the Skins made him a millionaire.

Then Rock turned around and ripped the organization for "not taking care" of players like him.

Our S teams are playing fine; Rock was a marginal player.

I said it and I'm glad he's back. We've missed his pass pro more than anything else. The 2007 CP isn't around anymore but he can help us for the next 8 games barring injury and we'll move forward without him next year.

Shanahan has been burned the last two games by only having 2 active RBs. Call up Davis and cut someone over the age of 37.
