Redskins injury report: Hall questionable; Cooley expecting to play

The Washington Redskins listed cornerback DeAngelo Hall as questionable for Sunday’s game because of a knee injury that limited him in practice on Friday.

Hall joined running back Tim Hightower (shoulder), tight end Chris Cooley (knee), receiver Anthony Armstrong (hamstring) and cornerback Phillip Buchanon (neck) as players listed as questionable for Washington’s game against Philadelphia.

Cooley has played in all four of Washington’s game despite missing all of the preseason with a balky knee. The tight end had fluid drained from his knee earlier this week, but Cooley said he doesn’t believe the ailment will keep him from playing.

“I’m fine. It’s something I’m managing and something that I deal with every day,” Cooley said. “I get myself ready to play, I practice every day. I’m a firm believer that practice makes you better. So I get myself ready to practice and play every day. Am I playing the way I would like to play? Probably not. But I’m still playing extremely consistent in the role that I’m being asked to play.

“I can absolutely make plays for us,” Cooley added. “I feel confident in my ability to catch balls and my ability to get down the field. … This is something that I’m going to battle through for now, and hopefully it gets better.”

Safety Oshiomogho Atogwe (toe) and fullback Darrel Young (hamstring) both are listed as probable for Sunday.

On the Eagles’ injury report, defensive end Trent Cole (calf) and tackle Jason Peters (hamstring) both have been ruled out for Sunday’s game.

Listed as probable for the Eagles despite injuries are tackle King Dunlap (back) is questionable for the game. Meanwhile Safety Nate Allen (knee), receiver Jason Avant (hip), defensive tackle CUllen Jenkins (tricep), tackle Winston Justice (knee), safety Jarrad page (stinger), defensive end Juqua Parker (ankle), receiver Steve Smith (knee), defensive end Darryl Tapp (pectoral muscle) and guard Julian Vander (elbow).
