Talking Points: Will Young, Landry practice?

Talking Points: Will Young, Landry practice?
December 1, 2011, 4:00 pm

Here is what well be talking about at Redskins Park on Thursday:--Injury concerns again are in the forefront as four starters missed practice on Wednesday. The most serious injuries seem to be to Darrel Young (concussion) and LaRon Landry (groin). We will monitor the status of both of them at practice and see what happens there. And if Landry cant go does rookie DeJon Gomes get another start in his place? London Fletcher (ankle) and Stephen Bowen (knee) also missed practice on Wednesday. Bowen is a question mark but it seems unlikely that Fletcher will miss the game and break his iron man streak.--The Redskins have not given up a run of longer than 12 yards in the past two games after being gashed for long gainers repeatedly for the previous several games. Not coincidentally, the Redskins won one of those games and took the other one to overtime. Well see what they have been doing to stop the long gains when Jim Haslett takes the podium at about 11 this morning.--Kyle Shanahan has his weekly session this afternoon with the media after practice. He will discuss Roy Helus emergence as the teams top running back and Rex Grossmans performance that has led to a relative offensive explosion (47 points the last two games).
