Mike Furrey placed on injured reserve

Veteran wide receiver Mike Furrey, sidelined after suffering a concussion early in training camp, has been placed on the season-ending injured-reserve list, a person familiar with the situation said Thursday.

Furrey, 33, did not return to training camp, which ended Thursday, after the injury Aug. 2. Coach Mike Shanahan said recently that the Redskins had not determined how to handle Furrey's situation on the roster, "but I'm sure when we do, we'll let you know something." The Redskins did not immediately have a comment about the roster move.

The Redskins signed Furrey in the offseason in an effort to bolster a receiving corps that includes many unproven players. With the Cleveland Browns last season, Furrey had 23 receptions for 170 yards. For the Detroit Lions in 2006, Furrey had 98 catches for 1,086 yards and six touchdowns.

To all haters:

Oldest O-lines in the league:

1.) Giants, Average age of 30.4, Starters Diehl-29, Seubert-31, O'Hara-33, Snee-28, McKenzie-31

2.) Cowboys, Average age of 30.2, Starters Free-26, Kosier-31, Gurode-31, Davis-32, Colombo-31

* And not only do the cowboys have an old line, but two of their starters Marc Colombo and Kyle Kosier could be out week 1 one against the skins. On top of that, they don't know if doug free can play because he was beaten to a pulp by jared allen in that playoff game. These teams should have learn last year by watching the skins that an old line that can get injured easily with questionable depth leads to disaster.

What an amazing update. I didn't hear about this until noon on the radio.

read my post again. your 0-line is old and has horrible depth. It is very similar to what the skins used to have. They released their tackle jon jansen before last year's debacle just as you guys have gotten rid of Flozell Adams. We replaced him with a young guy with question marks, Stephon Heyer, just as you guys attempt to replace Flozell with Doug Free, a young guy with question marks (who also got owned in that minnesota playoff game). On the opposite side of the questionable tackle the redskins had an injury to their old pro bowl tackle, Chris Samuels. Same with the cowgirls. They now have an injury to their old pro bowl tackle Marc Columbo. And finally the redskins season ended with the injury to their starting guard Randy Thomas and now look... the cowboys have an injury to their starting guard Kyle Kosier.

It's karma. The redskins have seen this story before and now it's the cowgirls turn!

Mercy killing.

Pretty bad when you have a LT with the last name "Free".

Kind of like "Parachute Luggage".

You're only asking for trouble.

The plot sickens!

Between Tranny (Tranahan?) canceling practices due to tiny drops of water falling from the sky (THAT'S only been happening for billions of years), Haynesgirth continuing to get headaches (no Excedrin in DC apparently) and other folks missing practice for court appearances, Coach Tranny had no choice BUT to close training camp! Absolutely LMAO!!

You burgundy and gold, dyed-in-the-wool chumps still think you have a chance against the Cowboys? I'll be the first to admit that we're having a few injuries here and there due to forces beyond our control, but we will still get the job done on September 12 with nary a complaint about injuries. Since the Deadskins are so out of shape (due to 'Club Shanahan' as the players apparently refer to it), I have no doubt that the Cadavers will suffer a bunch of non-contact injuries between now and the season opener. No excuses after you receive your beatdown courtesy of the Cowboys, agreed?

Hey! There was another coach who put up big numbers in the preseason and the players LOVED his training camp. 'Memba his name...? STEVE SPURRIER! ROTFL!!!!!

Gotta get out of here before I bust a gut!! Y'all are hilarious!

Hell...To The...Deadskins

Funny how the last couple posts from the previous thread ALWAYS get re-posted in the new one. These idiots don't want their couple minutes of typing to be ignored or die in vain.

Getting rid of Flozelle seems to have been a good call though. He looked really slow in the Steeler game the other night...and his knees look like they don't want to bend anymore. I don't know anything about Doug Free except what I saw from the game against the Bengals. Moves around well but that's only part of the job. Does anybody know what kind of player he's going to be?

Saw doug free play and alex barron play against the same DE (Shaunessy?) vs Oakland. free was looked really solid, gave the DE nothing. barron was abused, giving up 2 sacks in 1 quarter -- and it could have been worse.

colombo was also beaten for a pair of sacks by the Raiders rookie DE on the other side.

Don't think the dallas interior guys got much of a push up front -- against a pretty average Raider DL.

Thanks to the blogger who posted the link to the story about how back in the day J Reid was a Dodgers beat reporter for the LA Times and Milton Bradley called him an "Uncle Tom" which provoked a shouting match between the two that required player intervention to separate them. Nobody likes being hated on but in the case of MB I think I would pass on responding to any hateful remark sent my way, especially if I am a journalist covering him and the team.

Too bad. He's one of the few receivers in camp who had actually done something in this league.

The sarcasm is just killing me.

Just a possibility:
It could be that a Fat Albert trade is imminent. Under direction from his agent, Fat Albert may have developed his "headache" to keep him out of practice in order to prevent any potential injuries. Meanwhile, his agent, Allen, and the other team are working out the specifics of the deal.

So what no name training camp fodder type will be brought in?
