Right tackle Jammal Brown and safety LaRon Landry were held out of practice on Wednesday due to injuries.
Both of them missed Sunday’s game against the Patriots with injuries. Landry missed his second consecutive game with a groin injury and Brown was a late scratch due to a groin injury sustained in pregame warmups.
Mike Shanahan said that Landry was held out due to both the groin injury and an Achilles problem that landed him on injured reserve last season and has been giving him problems all year.
Mike Shanahan seemed dubious about the prospects for either player being able to go when Redskins play the Giants on Sunday. “Usually when a guy comes back after being away for a week or two weeks, it takes a little time to get back in football shape and play in a game,” Shanahan said. “If he does come back tomorrow, we’ll see how he practices and if he can suit up for the weekend.”
Of Brown, the coach said, “He’s still pretty sore.”
Also held out of practice were fullback Mike Sellers (elbow) and receiver Donte Stallworth (illness).
Limited in practice were Stephen Bowen (knee), Reed Doughty (rib), London Fletcher (ankle) and punter Sav Rocca (left ankle).
