LaRon Landry likely to miss season opener vs. the New York Giants

LaRon Landry told the assembled media today that, as of right now, he will likely be missing the Redskins season opener against the New York Giants this Sunday.

Landry appears to have aggravated his hamstring injury, which he originally pulled prior to the Redskins preseason game against Indianapolis, during a portion of Saturday’s practice. He had an MRI on the hamstring today, which showed a “setback” in the healing process.

He did mention that the injury to his Achilles tendon – which forced the Redskins to place Landry on injured reserve last season – is fine and has “no questions” regarding it’s recovery and status.

With Landry out and Kareem Moore still on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, Reed Doughty will more than likely be starting at Strong Safety on Sunday, next to OJ Atogwe.

    I’ll roll with DOUGHTY. Adequate against the run at least. So-so pass defender.

    I think CARRIKER – COFIELD – BOWEN and their ability to neutralize and penetrate the GIANTS o-line will be huge in this game. And with the lack of confidence I have in our offensive line, we’ll need it in my opinion.
