Sellers leaves in boot; Simpson had hamstring pull
Redskins fullback Mike Sellers walked out of the visiting locker room Sunday at Soldier Field wearing a protective boot on his foot, an apparent injury suffered during the Redskins' 17-14 victory over Chicago.
Sellers, though, declined to comment on the injury, one that came during a day in which the Redskins largely remained healthy. The one development: Running back/kick returner Chad Simpson was inactive with a hamstring injury he suffered Friday, leaving the Redskins with only Ryan Torain and Keiland Williams as healthy backs.
"Any time you have a guy pull a hamstring and you go into the game with two running backs, you have a little bit of a question mark," Coach Mike Shanahan said. "Hopefully, we will get back to having three backs, and if not, we'll go out and get one."
Starting back Clinton Portis has missed three games with a groin problem, and is due to be out four to six weeks. Rookie Brandon Banks handled all the kick return duties with Simpson out.
Tight end Chris Cooley and linebacker Rocky McIntosh each returned from concussions. McIntosh was credited with eight tackles - tying London Fletcher for most on the team - and had a sack. Cooley led the Redskins with seven catches.
"I felt fine," Cooley said. "I practiced Thursday and took about half the plays and felt good. I had no concern about playing today."
