Quick Hits: Chris Cooley suggested feeding Fred Davis the ball

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said that there is no update on cornerback Josh Wilson, who left Sunday’s game with neck and back injuries. The coach expected to have a better idea of the starter’s status later this week.

Shanahan said the decision to go for it on fourth-and-3 was a “gut feel.” The coach said he studies those percentages but most of the time he goes with his gut.

Shanahan declined to say whether Rex Grossman or receivers were at fault for the two interceptions yesterday.

Shanahan said Chris Cooley continues to get into better football shape. He said Cooley told coaches during the game to feed fellow tight end Fred Davis the ball.

Shanahan said it doesn’t mean much that the team has won its first two games. “It just means we’ve got two wins. ... Things can change very quickly,” the coach said.

Shanahan praised the development of rookie Ryan Kerrigan, who had a sack on Sunday.
