ASHBURN (CBSDC)–Redskins Head Coach Mike Shanahan spoke to the media for the first time since the team announced the return of Chris Cooley.

Shanahan says he called Cooley last night when they landed back in DC and asked if he was in shape and Cooley said he was.  He also hopes Cooley can help them as early as this week.  In the not so good news, Shanahan said Fred Davis “ruptured his Achilles” and will have surgery tomorrow.  Shanahan added that it’s a five-to-six month recovery.

There is no new news on London Fletcher (mild-hamstring strain) or Pierre Garçon (toe) according to Shanahan.

“We’re not pushing him right now,”  Shanahan said on Garçon.

Shanahan said long-snapper Nick Sundberg (broken arm) is cleared to practice on Wednesday.
