ASHBURN, Va. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins held their final practice in advance of Sunday’s season opener in New Orleans.

On Friday, the team again tried to replicate the deafening noise levels expected in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome by blasting music inside of their enclosed practice bubble at Redskins Park.

Once ears stopped ringing, the biggest news to surface was the bombshell dropped by General Manager Bruce Allen who said he would be meeting with recently released tight end Chris Cooley next week.

The team would be able to re-sign the fan favorite after Week One at a significantly lower rate than he was to receive under the terms of his old contract.

However, Cooley told 106.7 The Fan reporter Grant Paulsen he was unaware of a scheduled meeting.

In other news, Kory Lichtensteiger (knee), Brian Orakpo (chest) and Josh Wilson (abdomen) should be able to play on Sunday.

The only Redskin not playing is safety Brandon Meriweather (sprained MCL/PCL).

Here are Friday’s notes and quotes from Ashburn.

Mike Shanahan: The head coach weighed in on the Cooley situation.

“We’ve always left the door open for Chris,” Shanahan said.

He also touched on the team’s injury situation, summing it up simply.

“Everybody’s fine, but obviously Brandon is out,” he said.

DeAngelo Hall: The veteran weighed in on New Orleans’ weapons.

“You always have to know where Darren Sproles is,” Hall said. “When he touches the ball he’s electricity in a bottle. Jimmy Graham led tight ends in receptions… he’s just a freak of nature. Anytime you got a guy out there that’s 6-6, can run like he can, catches the ball great with his hands, runs great routes. He’s a serious weapon.”
