Head Coach Mike Shanahan and Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan spoke earlier as they prepare for their fourth and final preseason game and also had to make some cuts today to get to the 80 man roster limit by 4pm.

The cuts are: QB Ben Chapple, K Clint Stitser, WR Malcolm Kelly, T Xavier Fulton, LB Eric McBride, DB Dante Barnes, DB Tyrone Grant, G Corey O’Daniel & TE Joe Torchia.  Kelly, the Redskins 2008 second round pick, did get an injury settlement.  Mike Shanahan also said the team put Jarvis Jenkins on IR yesterday.

OJ Atogwe, LaRon Landry, Chris Cooley & Kareem Moore didn’t practice today.  Shanahan said Atogwe was a little sore and “it all depends on how he’s feeling”  if he plays on Thursday.  Shanahan added this is nothing that should keep him out from practicing next week.  No update on Landry, Cooley or Moore and none are expected to play Thursday.

Brandon Banks, Ryan Torain & Adam Carriker fully practiced today and are expected to play Thursday.  Shanahan said Banks “looks pretty good.”
