LaRon Landry’s groin injury is worse than feared

The Washington Redskins were without three defensive starters and one offensive starter in Wednesday’s practice, according to the team’s injury report.

Starting strong safety LaRon Landry (groin), linebacker London Fletcher (ankle), defensive end Stephen Bowen (left knee) and fullback Darrel Young (concussion) all sat out practice, according to the report.

Landry suffered the groin injury during Sunday’s game and played off and on down the stretch of the victory over Seattle. Initially it was believed that Landry would be fine, but Coach Mike Shanahan said the injury was too painful for Landry to practice Wednesday. Landry previously has been hampered by a strained left Achilles’ tendon. 

Young and Bowen both suffered their injuries in Sunday’s game. Fletcher has played the last five weeks despite the ankle injury. 

Limited in practice were linebacker Brian Orakpo (ankle), lineman Jammal Brown (hip) and receiver Niles Paul (toe). 

Full practice participants despite injuries were offensive lineman Maurice Hurt (knee), receiver Donte Stallworth (foot), safety DeJon Gomes (knee) and quarterback Rex Grossman (sore shoulder).

Grossman mildly injured his shoulder on a play in which a Seattle defender drove him into the ground after he had already thrown a pass. But no penalty was called. 

Shanahan said none of the players has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Jets.

Sitting out practice for the Jets was offensive lineman Mike DeVito (knee). Lineman Vlad Ducasse (knee) was limited.

Practicing despite ailments were defensive lineman Marcus Dixon (shoulder), running backs Shonn Green (rib) and LaDanian Tomlinson (knee), offensive linemen Nick Mangold (ankle) and Matt Slauson (knee), receiver Jeremy Kerley (knee) and defensive back Brodney Pool (knee).
