Brian Orakpo and LaRon Landry both hopeful

Redskins safety LaRon Landry and linebacker Brian Orakpo say their respective injuries feel better, but neither is certain he’ll be able to play Sunday against the Cardinals.

While Landry said it’s “possible” he’ll make his season debut, Orakpo sounded a bit more optimistic.

“It’s feeling all right, but we’re going to see how it is come Sunday,” Orakpo said.

Both will be listed as questionable on the team’s injury report, and Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan will wait until Sunday when he can see how each feels before determining who will play against Arizona.

“I want to get out there, but we’ll see what happens,” Landry said. “We’ll see what happens tomorrow and Sunday. We got 48 hours.”

Landry missed all of the preseason because of an Achilles’ injury and then was sidelined by a sore hamstring. Landry said Friday he’s feeling better. “From day to day, it’s getting better,” he said.

Shanahan wants to make sure neither suffers a setback, and both have progressed to a point where they can play four full quarters. Landry and Orakpo were both limited in practice throughout the week.

“I would like to be out there obviously with my teammates,” Orakpo said. “I don’t like missing nothing. But you gotta be cautious and just take it real slow. . . . We’re going to see how it is, man. That’s all I can say.”
