ARLINGTON, Va. (CBSDC) — Redskins Head Coach Mike Shanahan spoke to the media today following the Washington Redskins loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday. Due to Hurricane Sandy, Shanahan spoke to the media today via a conference call instead of his normal podium session.
Shanahan said punter Sav Rocca is punting through a torn meniscus in his right knee and linebacker Perry Riley (hamstring) should be able to play next Sunday barring any setback.
Shanahan also talked about the blocked extra point yesterday saying, “There’s no question it was too low. Way too low.”
Logan Paulsen started his first game at tight-end and Shanahan said he was “really pleased with the way he played.”
He also had the same sediments about London Fletcher who missed some practice last week with a strained hamstring and balance issues.
Regarding DeAngelo Hall, Shanahan would only say “I had a good conversation with him” today and wouldn’t go any further into it until it goes through the league office, which is closed today.
Shanahan was quite candid about the wide-receiver pass from Josh Morgan to Robert Griffin III that ended up in an offensive pass interference call.
“After looking at that play you feel like a complete dumb-sh*t,” Shanahan said.
He also is hoping the practice bubble is still there when he get’s to work tomorrow.
“I’m hoping that when I come to work tomorrow morning, that it’s still up,” Shanahan said.
