Injury Bug hits

Postby 1niksder » Fri Aug 11, 2006 1:21 pm

Backup running back Jesse Lumsden's name was added to the injury list yesterday. He has a problem with his hip flexor. That could be a setback if he is unable to play Sunday. Lumsden is in a serious battle for a roster spot, and the coaching staff is anxious to see him in action, especially on special teams.


Hope he is able to play Sunday

Wide receiver Taylor Jacobs faces long odds in making the roster this year. Three wide receivers are all but certain to be on the final 53-man list: Santana Moss, Antwaan Randle El and Brandon Lloyd. James Thrash is an exceptional special teams player, and David Patton is a veteran receiver who had a good off-season. Mike Espy, a rookie free agent, also has impressed the coaches


Dosen't this happen every Training Camp?

Backup cornerback and special teams player Ade Jimoh has a sternum injury, will miss Sunday's preseason game against Cincinnati and will be out for part of next week.

The injury occurred when Jimoh was hit in the chest by running back Rock Cartwright during practice.


I think his spot is safe if he doesn't miss too much

The way I see it, he is #7 WR & we will probably only keep 5.

I really hope that Lumsten is able to play. Maybee Gibbs will see that his determination and previous contributions will be enough for him to stay another week if he isn't able to play. My understanding is that after 2 preseason games, the teams have to cut down their roster to ? amt of players. One game really isn't enough.

While Jesse obviously doesn't want to miss any opportunities, I don't see any need to rush an injury. He's done enough to earn a look in the prseason regardless, and I doubt very much that missing Sunday's game would jeopardize that. The coaching staff really like him and aren't loking for a reason to drop him any time soon IMO. There are lots of other guys on the roster that should and will be 'cut' before the Redskins start thinking about where Jesse fits in. I'd hate to see him rush the injury and truly damage his chances by hurting himself further.

... and if Jesse can't go, then it's likely that Kerry Carter will benefit and see that much more playing time. He will likely see a lot regardless.

Nemo, Rock, and Carter will all get a lot of work on Sunday... both on offense and on special teams. Jesse too if he's ready to go. It's one of the best camp battles going and that's what preseason games are for... sorting out camp battles.

At least the injury bug hasnt hit any actual players. I guess Jimoh could end up being the 4th CB. But neither of the other 2 matter Jacobs is our 6th WR and I would rather have Thrash anyway.
I miss you 21.

God I wish we had a second round pick.

Do you even try to contribute or is this your way of padding :hmm:

You come across as being serious and that's scary if you are.

I'm pretty sure they are ALL actual players, I think 2 were actual Redskins and actually played in actual games, unless the Skins only dressed 51 last year. More has been heard from the 3rd guy than from the 2 to that I'm pretty sure were actually playing football for the Redskins last year.

All 88 on the roster are "actual players" or they wouldn't be there. Jimoh, Molinaro & Jacobs were on last yrs roster. Lumsden has been very impressive. While not all of them would make this yrs team even if healthy, they are competing. My guess is that Lefotu is more a candidate for PS this yr. Lumsden has a good chance of making the roster.

I mean contributors to the team. I am trying to say, thankfully none of the players who matter towards the outcome of the team besides maybe Jimoh are hurt.

Jim Molinaro isn't valuable? Our best offensive line backup isn't important and doesn't affect the outcome of the team??

Okay then.

Yeah... offensive linemen rarely get hurt do they?

I didnt see the Jim Molinaro thing thats horrible. He is a big part of this team. I hope he can come back. O wait no one mentioned Molinaro earlier in the thread..........

My only hope is that they haven't given Taylor Jacobs too much of Al Saunders new playbook, cuz with this latest injury, he's as good as gone, and someone is going to pick him up. I hope he does'nt go to a divisision rival, or anyone for that matter, where he can fill the coaching staff with some of the new nuances of our revamped offense that might feature some things that Saunders didn't use in K.C.

Jacobs, as I said, is as good as gone. I hope they've been limiting him to most of the playbook.
Sit back and watch the Redskins.

SOMETHING MAGICAL IS ABOUT TO BEGIN!

None of these guys are assured of roster spots. They were probably pressing too much & not able to relax. That makes injuties more likely (& frequently detracts from performance).
