Several Redskins limited in practice by injury

Several Redskins were limited in practice Wednesday, still nursing bumps and bruises suffered in last Sunday's win over the Chicago Bears.

Coach Mike Shanahan said both right tackles, Jammal Brown and Stephon Heyer, were limited, as was linebacker Brian Orakpo, fullback Mike Sellers and safety Kareem Moore.

Of Heyer and Brown, Shanahan said, "I think both of them will be okay, but they were limited today."

Sellers was wearing a walking boot following the Bears' game but did not appear to be wearing one on Wednesday at Redskins Park.

"He feels a little bit better than he did after the game," said Shanahan, "but still limited."

The Redskins had only two running backs active in Chicago. Chad Simpson suffered a hamstring injury last Friday in practice. Shanahan said he wants three running backs available Sunday in Detroit and seemed optimistic that Simpson might be ready. Simpson, who primarily contributes on special teams, was able to participate in at least part of practice Wednesday. Shanahan said his injury isn't as bad as initially feared.

is there a blog etiquette?

Posted by: Rando | October 27, 2010 3:13 PM

Yes. It is considered proper form to sit upright whilst one prepares their posting with their mouse (corded or not) at the ready and their doobie (for inspiration) in a smokeless ashtray and one ear bud in listening to ESPN980.com.

I urge you not to deviate from this standard practice.

-Was that a result of McNabb hitting him on the top of his foot with the football?

A final comparison 2009 Season

Donovan McNabb:

yards 3,553 touchdowns 22 interceptions 10

Jason Campbell:

yards 3,618 touchdowns 20 interceptions 15

We got rid of a guy and then added a guy very much like the one we got rid of.

And the one we added is 'elite'.

He'd better play like it.

I'm just glad we can say the 2010 Skins are at least as good as the 2009 version since we now have 4 wins.

I'll really breathe a sigh of relief when we win our 5th game so I'll know we are better than last year.

Whew!

All this mcNabb hating is turning me, I may start defending the guy.

Posted by: pabrian2003 | October 27, 2010 4:03 PM | Report abuse

Yes with win number 4 we are as good as last year. Translation we're terrible.

But we could win more games.

Now that we're playing haynesworth and when portis comes back makes it very very possible

Posted by: pabrian2003 | October 27, 2010 4:06 PM | Report abuse

I guess since Reid can't speculate (make up) stuff about Haynesworth being traded anymore he has to move on to starting stuff about McNabb. Sad dude. Try and pretend you are a reporter and not a gossip columnist.

Posted by: paperwc | October 27, 2010 4:08 PM | Report abuse

I wouldn't have done the McNabb trade -- would have used the resource and $$ for OL help. Wasn't a terrible deal (like Cutler would have been), just different priority.

And you can make a stats case for Campbell and McNabb as similar.

But I can't make a case that Campbell is an equal or better QB than McNabb. The gap isn't as big as a lot of people think it is, but there is a gap.

Fortunately for the SF sports fans, there is something else going on this week other then the 49ers.

Posted by: zcezcest1 | October 27, 2010 3:45 PM

WHAT could be possibly more important than a SF Sports Fan's 1-5 NFL team playing in London with their new franchise QB getting his 1st start??!!

I have NO IDEA what you are talking about....

The Redskins don't beat Dallas, Philly or Green Bay with Campbell at QB given the pass ruh pressure. We might have beaten Chicago since the defense carried us, but we'd probably be looking at 1-6 instead of 4-3. QB play can't simply be measured in stats - instincts (which JC didn't have) and ability to handle pressure is what usually is the difference between W's and L's when a team plays in close games like the Redskins every week.

You guys are blind supporters. I am a big Skins fan but I can still ask the question: should Grossman be given a shot given the inconsistent sub-par play we have seen from McNabb? 70 QB rating and you scuff like a baby when the question is asked? 70!!!!! Not 90 or higher. 70!!! He is either injured or too dumb to have assimilated the new offence. If he plays at a 90% QB rating we could be undefeated. He may be a leader but at some point he has to play up to the expectations. Maybe Andy Reid knew something we didn't but McNabb has not convinced me he should be back with Skins next year.

Mustang do you realize grossman couldn't beat out Kyle Orton. If line do hold up edge against speed rushers

You do realize that McNabb threw 2 more TDs and 5 fewer INTs, right? For a +7 advantage. That's a lot more important to a team than 65 yards passing.

And you realize that Orton is currently 2nd in the NFL in passing yards and 8th in QB rating at 92.1, right?

seriously? mcnabb and campbell were comparable last year? any year?

Posted by: zatoichi77 | October 27, 2010 6:14 PM | Report abuse

Anyone honestly suggesting that McNabb should be benched for Rex Grossman should drop an electrical appliance in their own bath water.

What a ridiculous assessment, backed up only by numbers and QB Ratings that do nothing to assess his ability to make the big play at clutch moments, as he has done all season. This team is 2-5 without McNabb, period.
