Redskins’ Friday injury rundown
SS LaRon Landry (left Achilles’ tendon) and CB Carlos Rogers (left hamstring) returned to practice today, coach Mike Shanahan said this afternoon. They will have to work at full speed during tomorrow’s walk-through to convince Shanahan they should play Sunday against Tampa Bay, he said. Landry, in particular, appears to be a long shot at this point.
RB Ryan Torain (hamstring) had no setbacks in practice this week and is expected to play on Sunday. Shanahan, however, would not say who will start at tailback. RB Keiland Williams has started in Torain’s absence the last four games, but James Davis has gotten more touches than Williams each of the last two weeks. Davis impressed coaches last Sunday with his speed and ability to catch passes.
“The longer a guy is out, the more careful you have to be,” Shanahan said.
FS Kareem Moore (right knee/biceps) fully participated in practice and is expected to play, Shanahan said. Macho Harris practiced with the first string each of the last two days.
Shanahan said he “probably” will fill Albert Haynesworth’s active roster spot before Sunday’s game.
