Ladell Betts will have his neck X-rayed after jamming it on Monday.
Betts got run over by Marcus Washington in a blitz pickup drill. The ailment isn't thought to be severe and the X-rays are said to be precautionary.
Redskins G Will Whitticker suffered a high ankle sprain at practice Monday.
Whitticker had been making a case to be Washington's No. 3 guard, but will now be out indefinitely. The former Packer will undergo an MRI on Tuesday.
#21 = Forever in our hearts
We may be saying goodbye to Whitticker.

Do you think we should? He may be ready to go just as someone else is about to go down. I think if he has shown any kind of decency thus far that we may need to hold onto any linemen we can at this point. What do you think?

I agree that we'll be holding on to our linemen for now. Injuries at this point really mean opportunities for no-names to step in and impress the coaches (Heyer apparently has been quite good at Tackle).
Guard is a weaker spot for us right now, since Wade is making a tough adjustment and the Redskins are concerned about Thomas' knee. I would say that the biggest question right now is whether Mike Pucillo and Ross Tucker (another natural tackle converted to guard) will step up. If both of them prove to be adequate, then we may be saying goodbye to Whitticker. It's definitely too early to tell, so maybe I should have qualified that first post.
I think that you are right, CLL. LG is a very ?? spot this season, so the Redskins might try to hang on to every option as long as possible.
