More from 106.7 the Fan

Skins tight end Chris Cooley joined “The Sports Junkies” on 106.7 The Fan with an update on his broken finger and John Beck’s first start as a Redskin.

Cooley said he surgery was successful in repairing his index finger but the hardest part is being able to withstand contact on it, like catching a football, without experiencing pain.  However, Cooley’s timetable for return isn’t that long.

“You say it’s a broken bone.  So you say it’s four to six weeks.”

As for the game against the Panthers, Skins haven’t deviated from their plan of attack even with a quarterback change from Rex Grossman to John Beck.

“The players feel this and I think the coaching staff feels this pretty strongly:  We’re getting a lot of the same type of player out of [Rex Grossman and John Beck].  I think the biggest thing we need is John to play a consistent game.”

Cooley also says that there is no divide on the team on who’s pro-Rex and who’s pro-Beck.  He said that he would have Grossman just like Moss did because it’s a matter of teammates looking out for each other.
