Safety Pierson Prioleau and linebacker Lemar Marshall were among Redskins players who suffered minor injuries in Monday's victory at Dallas, but they could be ready to play by Week 4 with Washington getting a bye this weekend.
Marshall suffered a groin pull but refused to leave the game, while Prioleau was knocked out of the game early with a hamstring strain. Bubba Tyer, director of sports medicine, said there is a chance both will be able to play against Seattle. Safety Sean Taylor (bruised shoulder), tight end Robert Royal (bruised fibula), and cornerback Carlos Rogers (ankle sprain) played through minor injuries and are expected to practice this week, Tyer said. Wide receiver Taylor Jacobs was shaken up late in the game but should also practice today.
Kicker John Hall missed the game with a quadriceps strain, and was unable to practice last week, while tackle Jon Jansen held up well despite playing with casts on his broken thumbs. "I'm glad we have a week to rest some of our bumps and bruises," Jansen said. Tyer said it is possible one of Jansen's casts can be cut down for the Oct. 2 game.
A First for Parcells
Dallas Coach Bill Parcells was 77-0 all time when leading by 13 points or more in the fourth quarter before Monday's loss. He did not address the media yesterday.
