Redskins Injury List

Via Redskins blogger Matt Terl:

Anthony Bryant is OUT for Sunday’s game. “He’s got a concussion,” head coach Mike Shanahan said. “He got a concussion on Wednesday, and he’ll be out for the game.” It does not get much more clear-cut than that.

Similarly clear-cut: Albert Haynesworth is healthy. “Albert’s fine,” Shanahan said. The less clear part is what role Haynesworth will take on, if any; it would seem likely that he’d be the backup nose tackle, given Bryant’s injury, but Shanahan cautioned the media against making that assumption.

Anthony Armstrong is healthy per Anthony Armstrong, but that doesn’t really matter. “I’ve been ready to roll,” Armstrong said. “Coach makes any decisions that he feels is best for the team, but I’ll be ready to go.” And he later added, “I wanna play, but I can’t make the call. I’m ready to play.” As you’ve probably guessed, Shanahan declined to make that call at this point.

Shanahan DID acknowledge that Armstrong and Chris Horton were not able to practice fully. “Yeah,” he said, “they were limited too. Feeling better, but, again, you don’t know how much they recovered in a couple of days. Chris has been instrumental in our special teams — had five tackles last week — but he still has to be able to help the defense, and you’ve gotta weigh the corner position, safety position, so a lot goes into his health and we should know more next week.”

And then there’s Trent Williams.

Williams was able to practice — at least, he said, “to knock some of the rust off” — but he wasn’t willing to speculate on his status for the game. And Shanahan, of course, was characteristically vague. “He was limited,” Shanahan said, later adding “There’s a lot of possibilities depending on how he feels, there’s a lot of combinations we can go [with].”

Derrick Dockery, who plays next to Williams, was similarly non-specific. “I talk to him every day,” Dockery said. “He says he feels pretty good, but you don’t know. He’ll go out before the game and see how he feels, you know, make a gametime decision.”

But Dockery did sound one note of optimism as far as Williams’ availability goes: “I’m hopeful,” he said. “He’s done some really good work this week as far as treatment on the field with the trainers, so our hopes are really high right now.”
