Forced to miss the Dallas game because of a setback with his Achilles tendon, Redskins safety LaRon Landry anticipates playing Sunday in Seattle. But hes said that before.

Ill flare it back down to manageable and being comfortable moving, he said. At this point, the latter part of the season, week in and week out, its going to be a little achy. It feels good this week, looking forward to playing Sunday, cant wait.

Coach Mike Shanahan said Landry took the full practice on Wednesday.

"It was good to have him back," Shanahan said. "It looked like he was moving pretty good."

Landry missed the last half of 2010 and the first two games of this year with the injury. In his seven games, he has played 94.7 percent of the defensive snaps (443 of 468).

Rookie DeJon Gomes started in Landrys place alongside O.J. Atogwe.

Shanahan said Monday the reason Landry didnt play is that he was unable to practice at all during the week.

Asked if he will try to talk his way onto the field, Landry said: As far as politicking my way through the process, I really dont do too much talking. If they feel comfortable putting me in the game plan and are comfortable with me knowing the game plan to be able to play, thats what Im going to do.

Im going to trust my body and communicate with them.

The final six games are important for Landry, who has 52 tackles in a contract year. If he sucks it up and plays, he gets credit for being tough but he also risks hurting his value on the open market.

I really dont think too much about putting bad stuff on tape, Landry said. If I cant go, I wont go, but it wont be because of the contract situation.
