The Redskins held their first practice following a day off yesterday and their 7-6 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Thursday and were missing quite a few players.
Trent Williams (bone bruise), Maurice Hurt (knee), Morgan Trent (shoulder/knee), Jarvis Jenkins (flu), Chris Chester (ankle), Anthony Armstrong (ac joint/shoulder), Jammal Brown (hip), Kory Lichtensteiger (knee scope), Darrel Young (hamstring) & Lance Lewis (groin) all didn’t practice.
Redskins Head Coach Mike Shanahan says they’re playing it “day-by-day” with Williams, knows it will at least be a few days and it’s just a “wait-and-see” if he’ll play next weekend in Chicago. Shanahan says that Hurt is “a little bit sore right now” and not sure if he’ll be able to practice on Monday, but they hope it won’t “keep him out too much”.
Shanahan says Morgan Trent is “out for a couple of days”. Jarvis Jenkins should be back Monday according to Shanahan with the flu, but not looking as good for Darrel Young who will likely miss another week with his hamstring. Shanahan did have some good news on Anthony Armstrong by saying, “I think he’ll be able to go this weekend”. Armstrong wore a yellow (non-contact) jersey once again today.
Chris Chester is “85%” according to Shanahan and thinks he’ll be able to go in a couple of days. Chester did do drill work today with the offensive line. Jammal Brown is “still pretty sore” according to Shanahan and says “I can’t say there’s much improvement”. No update on Kory Lichtensteiger who is likely out for the preseason.
Mike Shanahan did say they finally got in contact with Kentwan Balmer and says he is doing “ok”. Balmer left the team without saying anything to anyone and won’t be coming back.
The Redskins will have Sunday off before heading back to work on Monday in their second to last day of open practices.
