Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said safety LaRon Landry still was limited but did increase his workload in Thursday’s practice. Shanahan said Landry will likely test his hamstring full-speed by the end of the week.
Landry was upbeat following practice, telling reporters he took a step forward today and saying “you’ll see me Monday” against the Cowboys. But Shanahan said it’s still to early to know if Landry will play.
Shanahan said cornerback Josh Wilson (back) and safety DeJon Gomes (hamstring) were limited, as was fullback Mike Sellers, who twisted an ankle in practice and had it wrapped after it swelled up.
Shanahan said he’s not worried about Rex Grossman, who has gotten several passes batted down at the line. He attributed that to tall defensive linemen doing a good job of getting their hands up.
Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said he thought the Redskins used Tim Hightower a little too much during the first game, and was glad to see that Roy Helu can be counted on so Hightower isn’t overused.
Shanahan said Cowboys’ linebacker DeMarcus Ware is probably the best pass-rusher the Redskins will face all season.
Shanahan said Fred Davis seeing more playing time than Chris Cooley is a result of Cooley still working his way back from missing the preseason. He said Cooley “is extremely important” to the team.
