Mike Shanahan Rules Out Five For Bills, Including Hightower

Postby 1niksder » Tue Aug 07, 2012 3:37 pm

Head coach Mike Shanahan said on Tuesday that five players will not play in the first preseason game Thursday at Buffalo.

Running back Tim Hightower (left knee), receiver Anthony Armstrong (right shoulder), left guard Kory Lichtensteiger (right knee), right tackle Jammal Brown (hips) and fullback Darrel Young (left hamstring) will be on the sidelines. Shanahan also said right guard Chris Chester, who sprained his left ankle in practice Monday, is “a longshot” to play.

“I don’t want to rule him out because I don’t know for sure how he’s going to be tomorrow, but it doesn’t look good,” Shanahan said.

Cooley sits out practice but will play vs. Bills

When the Redskins open the preseason Thursday in Buffalo, they’ll do so missing a few key players.

At least two of the five starters along the offensive line – guard Kory Lichensteiger and tackle Jammal Brown – will be sidelined against the Bills, while guard Chris Chester is a long shot to suit up, according to Coach Mike Shanahan. Chester sprained his left ankle Monday and did not participate in Tuesday’s practice.

Shanahan also Tim Hightower, ranked atop the team’s depth chart at running back, has been ruled out, as has fullback Darrel Young. Hightower still is recovering from knee surgery, while young is nursing an ailing hamstring.

“Hopefully he keeps on making progress and will be able to play by the third game,” Shanahan said of Hightower.

Shanahan said Josh Morgan will be available to play, barring a setback. The wide receiver returned Monday from a weeklong layoff due to a hamstring.

Chris Cooley did not practice Tuesday but will play, Shanahan said.

“He’s been going to pretty hard,” Shanahan said of his tight end. “He needed a day of rest.”

Cooley joked that the day off was a privilege of being in the "30+ Club". He turned 30 last month.

A couple of more notes of interest from Shanahan’s practice news conference:

--Shanahan said the dueling kickers – Graham Gano and Neil Rackers – will alternate kicks.

“Whoever kicks off, will have the next field goal or extra point, whatever it is,” Shanahan said. “That’s the way we’ve tentatively talked about it.”

I am really looking forward to seeing what chemistry has developed so far between "Bob" (hehehe) and the receiver corps. I sure hope "Hank time" is gonna shine.

The way I see it we are missing one guard.

Way back in March I wasn't expecting CL to be healthy for the start of the season (and I still don't) let alone the start of the pre-season. I wasn't counting on JB being on the team in September (and I still don't).

So as far as I'm concerned we have our starting LG and RT on Thursday. The team counting on CL on JB to be starters for the season was a HUGE risk, borderlining on irresponsible. That is why we needed to sign a high quality FA OG and RT.

We didn't so we have who we have.

Hopefully, Mo Hurt has improved or one of these two guards we drafted is capable of being a starter. And it would be nice if CL gets healthy enough to be the #6 OL by the start of the season.

I'm not concerned with W. Smith or Pollumbis (sp?), I'm concerned with who comes in if they get hurt.

I'd be concerned with both. Polumbus, in particular, got abused during the second Giants game last year. He's gonna have a hard time in this division with pass rushers because of his height.

I know he is a little taller than normal, but that shouldn't hurt him. If he struggles it is lack of talent, not height.

My point was, he isn't a drop off from a gimpy Brown.

The Skins made their bed by not addressing the possition in FA, more they have to lie in it.
