ASHBURN, Va. (CBSDC)– The Washington Redskins returned to Ashburn, having dried out from superstorm Sandy and with a focus on a must-win contest against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

Subject to much criticism through the first half of the season, Washington may soon receive some much needed help in the secondary.

Safety Brandon Meriweather, who has missed the entire season with a knee injury, is getting closer to a return and expects to practice this week.

“I’m going to give my all and see if I can help the team in any way I can,”  Meriweather said. “We’re just trying to make sure when I come back it’s not for one game, it’s for the rest of the season.”

The big story in the locker room continues to be the unofficial eleven drops by Redskins receivers last Sunday. Wide receiver Leonard Hankerson feels there are no excuses for not catching the ball.

“Can’t happen,”  Hankerson said.  “Our job is to catch the ball and that’s what we’ve got to do. That’s what we’re on this team for.”

Hankerson dropped a touchdown catch in the first quarter.

“We’re not worried about catching the ball,”  wide receiver Josh Morgan said.  “We know there’s plays to be made. We’re just going to go out thereand make plays.”

The Redskins season will be on the line Sunday as they hope to improve to 4-5 heading into the bye week.

“4-5 is not a good record but we’ve got to start there,”  fullback Darrel Young said.  “This is what we’ve dug ourselves into, now we’ve got to get out.”
