CSN Update: Kirk Cousins happy with MRI result
The Redskins left FedEx Field late Monday night with several players nursing injuries. On Wednesday, Coach Mike Shanahan provide an update on all of the ailing players:
Here’s a quick rundown:
- QB Kirk Cousins (sprained right foot) is a “long shot” to play Saturday against the Bills. “We’ll evaluate it day-by-day,” Shanahan said.
- NT Barry Cofield (fractured right hand) also is not expected to play in the third preseason game, but Shanahan said the veteran would suit up if this were a regular season contest. “We’ll make sure he hits the treadmill hard and starts his cardio work,” Shanahan said. “I think he’ll be fine.”
- WR Aldrick Robinson (bruised left thigh) practiced but is still sore.
- WR Leonard Hankerson (bruised right knee) practiced full speed.
- RB Keiland Williams (knee) did not practice but Shanahan hopes he’ll practice Thursday.
- WR Donte’ Stallworth (hamstring) practiced full go.
- RB Chris Thompson (shoulder) also participated fully, though he’s still sore.
- S Brandon Meriweather (ACL recovery) is “making progress” and there’s a chance he’ll play Saturday.
- LB Nick Barnett (offseason knee surgery) is expected to suit up, barring a setback.
