We got our first injury report of the year this afternoon. To refresh your memory, on Wednesday and Thursday of each week the report indicates whether or not a playaer fully particpated in practice. On Friday, we get the designation as to whether a player is out, doubtful (75% chance he will not play), questionable (50% chance will not play) or probable (virtual certainty that he will play).
In today's report, LaRon Landry is the only Redskin who did practice. His injured Achilles, which landed him on the PUP list throughout training camp, is healed but pulled hamstring that he suffered warming up before the second preseason game in Indianapolis is still bothering him. Landry said earlier today that he does not expect to play against the Giants.
Five players were limited:
Ohsiomogho Atogwe (hamstring)
Brandon Banks (knee)
Chris Cooley (knee)
Donte Stallworth (shoulder)
Ryan Torain (hand)
"Limited" in practice can cover a variety of situations. It is defined as taking less than 100 percent of a player's normal reps. So a player could take part in just a few reps and be listed as "limited" or he could get the same designation after missing just a few.
As of right now, the only player besides Landry who seems to be in danger of missing the game is Cooley. Shanahan confirmed that there were doubts about his ability to play, saying that he really did not know how to project a player's ability to play in a game unless he could practice.
The Giants have three players listed as out for the game. Rookie cornerback Prince Amukamara will be out for a few more weeks with a broken foot, starting middle linebacker Jonathan Goff will soon go on injured reserve with a knee injury and defensive end Osi Umenyiora is out with a knee injury.
Justin Tuck was the only Giant listed as limited in practice.
