Washington, Stephens-Howling inactive for Redskins

Posted by Darren Urban on September 18, 2011 – 8:34 am

In what is no surprise after both missed all week of practice, LB Daryl Washington (calf) and RB LaRod Stephens-Howling (hand) are inactive for today’s game. Paris Lenon will slide into Washington’s spot and Stewart Bradley will get his first start for the Cardinals as the other inside linebacker. Chester Taylor will get Stephens-Howling’s spot.

John Skelton remains inactive at QB, meaning that, for the time being, Rich Bartel has won the No. 2 quarterback role, since Skelton has recovered from his ankle injury.

The other inactives include CB Crezdon Butler, who suffered a significant ankle injury last week in practice, CB Korey Lindsey, TE Jim Dray — who is still recovering from his pectoral strain — and T D’Anthony Batiste.

    RE: Taylor

    I’d expect him to slide into the LSH role.

    How come Alfonso Smith didn’t take that second spot? I figured he would get the shot at it.

    RE: Alfonso

    I would think they’d go with the vet.

    Stinks for DWash and Howler!!!

    Worth noting that LaRon Landry is out for the Skins, as well.

    The closer we get to kickoff, the more important this game feels. A chance to get to 2-0 with Seattle on the horizon, it would be a great kick start to the season. Protect the QB and the ball. Run hard Beanie!!

    Chester is a better player than alfonso amith too and that’s why he gets the nod also.

    The injuries continue to be a major issue! However, it would be good to have a 2-0, I consider this to be more a really good practice scrimmage for the Seahawks and would hate to give up any more of our players to injury going into a Divisional game. Also, our record of losses following wins nags at me, remembering last years loss in Seattle following a big win at home against the Saints. I like seeing the team hungry and the underdog (but not flat on their back) rather than puffed up and overconfident going into games we really have to win. CARDS LOOKING GOOD! STAY HEALTHY AND GO CARDS!

    what an embarrasing loss, i knew the skins would come down and kick the game winning field goal the second the offense went 3 and out, 100 yards in penaltys? our defense has too much un exp players to win

    Kolb stayed in pocket much better today. he was rewarded with a touchdown but also some serious hits. is it worth it?

    Darnell Dockette and Adrian Wilson frikkin suck. I dont think Adub could cover a piece of bread with a full jar of mayonase and dockette takes like 2 seconds to move on every snap. these are our defensive captains? psht… I hope they know that they look like a joke on the field.

    I thought Skelton only sprained his ankle? Is it at bad sprain or more serious than just a sprain? I thought those only took a short amount of time to heal.

    FIRE RUSS GRIMM. How many blind side hits until Kolb goes down and we are left with a Derick Anderson look alike. Worst tackles in the NFL. Go out and get new tackles, any means necessary. UFL, CFL, arena league, some div 1 guy sitting on a couch. Mark my words, no change equals an injured Kolb. FIRE RUSS GRIMM

    Yeah, fire people on the second game of the season! That makes so much sense!
    I dont really know what people are expecting to see this season. We are trying to rebuild from last season, only there was a little thing called the lockout that everyone seems to have forgotten about. If we do bad this season, Im not blaming players or the staff. Its not their fault they only had a few weeks to prepare.

    Yes brythybo7 by all means do not blame our players or coaches for this entire season as they get a pass. I will let you in on a little secret. None of the other teams had an offseason either. All teams have issues winners use their energies to build bridges to overcome them while losers spend their energies building excuses.
    Another east coast do not wake up until the second half. Redskins only punted twice all game and never in the first half. We were lucky to be in the game and could have won the game.

    Go Cards beat Seahawks
