Chris Chester sustained a mild left ankle sprain early in the Washington Redskins’ practice Monday, and head coach Mike Shanahan said he’s uncertain whether the right guard can play Thursday at Buffalo.

The problem in 2003 was our head coach and the college-level blocking schemes he brought with him to the NFL. They were running blitz pickup schemes that didn't get the job done. No line with Chris Samuels and Jon Jansen (both in their prime) as bookends and Randy Thomas and Derrick Dockery at guard can really be said to lack talent.

That quote does say "Monday," but it is talking about the one before the Buffalo game.
1nnik is giving an update saying he most likely won't play in the Bears game.

Our O-line is going to be a problem. Last night they got exposed. Trent Williams is the only lineman who is worth anything. I really wish that Shanahan had done more to address the line in free agency.

They're going to be a major problem this season, again. That makes me nervous with a rookie QB under center.

Our OL IS ABSOLUTELY going to be a problem this year --- and is going to be this seasons downfall. An offense will only go as far as the OL will take it. Want to know why we sign offensive players, they come here and stink up the place -- then go elsewhere and light it up -- it's the opportunities a good OL creates. Their ripple effect flows to every player on the offense (and an arguement can be made for defense).

RGIII was scrambling for his life in a PRE-SEASON game. We can't have this. I am very fearful that we may create a Patrick Ramsey issue....

Why this franchise has COMPLETELY OVERLOOKED the OL position for close to a DECADE is beyond me. The OL is EASILY the most important group of players on the field (in that their play affects all offensive positions -- the QB position is the only other than can say the same; however the OL has more effect on the QB than vice versa, IMHO). Without a solid OL, an offense lacks the ability to properly execute plays.

The OL is without question the most injured position in the NFL, so depth is paramount -- yet we have none. Injuries have constantly plagued this team, yet every year we think we'll "be fine" --- which never works out.

I screamed about this for years including in the beginning of this season -- and will continue to do so. The skins need 3 additional "solid" OL before they can be a contender. Until this is done, we will be at best an 8-8 team.

It's nice to see that we now have seemingly 2 solid young QBs. I am REALLY exicted about that. HOWEVER, until they have adequate protection, we will not see the benefits. This is the sad truth.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.
