Cooley Expects To Return 4-6 Weeks

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.
