Torain, Landry officially ruled out; 10 players questionable on injury report

By Rick Maese

On the final injury report of the week, the Redskins ruled out running back Ryan Torain (hamstring) and safety LaRon Landry (Achilles) for Sunday's game against Minnesota and listed 10 more players as questionable.

Washington's questionable players include: linebacker Lorenzo Alexander (hamstring), wide receiver Brandon Banks (knee), guard Derrick Dockery (knee), defensive end Kedric Golston (elbow/groin), guard Artis Hicks (thigh), defensive end Jeremy Jarmon (hamstring), linebacker Rocky McIntosh (thigh), wide receiver Santana Moss (knee), center Casey Rabach (knee), cornerback Carlos Rogers (knee). Jarmon was the only one of the group to miss Friday's practice.

The Vikings' questionable players include: receiver Bernard Berrian (groin), cornerback Chris Cook, safety Eric Frampton (hamstring) and receiver Sidney Rice (hip).

McNabb, who turned 34 Thursday, is having one of the most productive seasons of his career with Washington (5-5), which is besieged by injuries that have shredded its roster, particularly at running back.

WTF?

I don't know about you guys, but I'm thinking that we stick with the same O-line that we had for most of the Tennessee game. That's as good as they've looked all year. Keep Heyer at guard, Monty at center.

What would happen if EJ Henderson got a clean, blind shot on Banks?

a. He would pop right up and pat Henderson on the helmet and say "Go Terps!"
b. He would require smelling salts and an IV drip of whiskey
c. Sublimation- he would instantly evporate

I'd like to think A but I fear C.

If Moss can't go I would expect Terrence Austin to be activated. They will need the speed. I think Austin, Armstrong and Banks could provide enough deep threats...

ricky, the dude weighs 150...I've bedded down women bigger than that (not proud but just being honest). I think an LB could seriously kill him with a wicked hit. cannot see him ever being an every down WR, but will be a great weapon/decoy for a handful of offensive snaps and we know what he can do in the return game.

What is really stupid is that everyone is saying the Vikings will rally and beat the Skins.

But since when is firing your coach with 6 games to go a good thing?

Favre is having an awful year and leads the league in interceptions.

On the other hand, the Skins just beat a decent team on the road. The defense did not allow a touchdown, a week after being embarrased at home. The offensive line threw in nobodies and kicked a**.

Advantage-Skins.

Depleted or not they win this game 35-14.

I am curious though, what is the average age of Sunday's starting lineup?

I pity all of the East Coasters who are asleep and missing Boise St./Nevada.

I caught it.

It was an awesome game.

Kellen Moore is a rather decent passer.

The Nevada quarterback will become an NFL 6'6" possession receiver--Book It!

Boise St.'s kicker Boltzman probably had to walk home after the game--the guy missed two easy chip shots, one that would've won the game.

Nevada has a defensive end with speed named Moak who might be worth keeping an eye on.

As a major SEC football fan, I noticed the lack of size and speed you see in the front 7's at Southern football schools.

And I didn't the almost NFL quality play at corner and safety you see out of at least one pass defender like you typically see in the SEC.

It's what makes me wonder if Boise State or TCU or Oregon, for that matter, could make hay against the 'Bamas, South Carolin's, Auburns, LSU, Miss. State's, and Florida's.

We say that no matter what the polls say, College Bowl Time will be SEC Time, even if there are some decent teams--and players--out West.

Now you're talking! I agree, but you would hate the results, hater. It would be just like in roundball.

Duke football would be restored to the glory days of Wallace Wade when they hosted the Rose Bowl in Durham in 1942. Duke would be in the Sweet 16 every year, final four every other year and would take it all, baby, every six or eight years.

Maryland? Well, it would be the same old same old, with or without the playoffs: on the outside, hoping for an NIT bid, looking in at Duke coasting to glory.

We know Torain.... (is) out

Ryan Torain has had a hamstring injury for about an awfully long time.

And whereas I know hammies do take an awful amount of time to heal sometimes, his absence only confirms the line on him as a player: he has ability, but can't stay healthy.

In the Philly and Green Bay games, he looked like a guy who might become CP's eventual replacement.

Hopefully, dude can get it together for the final five games.

I totally agree.

But.

A Division I playoff won't happen as the present bowl-based system is a cash cow for the BCS conferences.

And if the money end of it all can be worked out to where the SEC, Big 12, PAC 10, ACC, Big 10, Big East, and the little people in the WAC can share slices of the same pie, a playoff will happen.

(And, somehow, you have to make space for totally irrelavent programs like Notre Dame.)

Until then, get used to pretending that post-season college football is important.

'Cuz it isn't.

Speaking the "The Fragile One," I wonder if MK's hammie has healed yet?

I hear he's lonely now that Devin Thomas and Marko Mitchell have moved on to bigger and things in the anonymous world of NFL journeymen/Tuesday tryout guys.

It's only been 3/4 of an NFL season, after all, and Malcolm Kelly should be mobile enough by now to walk into a bank to cash another Dan Snyder "Money for Nothin'" paycheck.

(I forgot, he has direct deposit, so in not going to the bank, he can heal up even more.)

(Thank God for technology.)

In hindsight, I wonder if he should've been IR'd given the fact that to date, Roydell Williams/Joey Galloway's lack of serious production this season suggests there are two empty roster spots, one of which a healing MK could've filled.

The other spot could've been filled by a cardboard FATHEAD cutout image of Art Monk that would still have more receiving yards than R Williams has had this season.

And so, our hopes for a new and improved Malcolm Kelly will have to wait until next August.

But between then and now, I'd better not see him at the bank.

Derek Jeter has made $205 million dollars as a New York Yankee--and that money doesn't include the various endorsement deals he has.

He's rich already and simply wants a pay raise that would have him earning $19-21 million a year.

I guess the newly married Jeter's fear is that he, like Latell Sprewell, might not be able to feed his kids.

We should all be so lucky.

I agree totally, with you and the premise of the article: Jeter is risking the good-guy image he's cultivated over these 15 years. He could lose out on so much more than the extra year (and dough) he's trying to wring out of the Yankees. It's hard to not see it as greedy and short-sighted.

MK would say, don't knock his hustle.

He's made (if my memory is right) 3 million dollars this season to "heal".

That buys a lot of aspirin if you ask me.

There isn't a blogga in RI with the skill or qualifications to make $3 million dollars a year without producing anything of value.

So stop making fun of Malcolm Kelly or his feelings will get hurt.

And he'll have to spend the offseason healing up all over again.

I totally agree man. People haven't realized the good things McNabb has done this year and if we keep him around he will lead this team on a playoff run (maybe all the way) like he did with the Eagles. We need to build around him, we've needed to build this team better and get younger for years, whether McNabb is here or not. Yes he needs to cut down on INTs but I'd say half of those are because of bad routes by WRs, just like half of JCs last year were because of bad routes by our WRs (funny how 3 of our top 4 are making little impact now or none in the NFL and people always blamed JC).

I know you were joking around here, but it's one of my wishes that the NFL develops a true farm system. The barn stormer leagues would play in smaller markets during the NFL regular season and players could be called up. I wouldn't call it essential for an 18 game season, but it would be nice to have the players there. This whole practice squad thing is stupid in that teams can lose a player anytime another team wants to pick a guy up. It destroys the whole idea of a team investing time and money in a developmental prospect since, if he's developing, he's going to another team. If the league had an exclusive rights farm system I think it would make perfect sense - and it would give the league an opportunity to make money in some of those smaller markets. I would think this would be a concept the union would buy into since the farm players would also become members of the NFLPA, and therefore contribute dues.
