Shanahan pleased with Cousins' performance

RICHMOND—Redskins safety Phillip Thomas will probably miss “a few days” because of the foot injury he sustained against the Titans, Coach Mike Shanahan said Saturday. 

Thomas was injured in the first quarter Thursday night as he tackled Tennessee running back Shonn Greene. Thomas, making his pro debut, sustained a shoulder stinger in the collision and a sprained his left foot when he fell awkwardly.

Thomas left LP Field sporting a walking boot. He was not available to the media on Saturday; practice was cancelled because of thunderstorms.

“He’s a little sore right, mid-foot,” Shanahan said. “I can’t tell you how long it’s going to be. But it will probably be a few days.”

Shanahan said the team’s medical staff does not suspect Lisfranc injury or any fractures in Thomas’ foot.

“They don’t think that’s a problem,” Shanahan said.

Shanahan also gave updates on linebacker Jeremy Kimbrough and wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth.

Kimbrough suffered a separated shoulder in the fourth quarter of Thursday’s game while reaching out to make a tackle.

“I can’t tell you for sure,” Shanahan about Kimbrough’s timeline. “Anytime you have a separation of the shoulder, I’ve seen guys come back in a couple days and a few weeks. I think in the next couple days we’ll get a better feel.” 

As for Stallworth, Shanahan said the veteran could miss next Monday night’s preseason game against the Steelers.

“He tried to play through it," the coach said. "I thought he did a good job, but we’ve got to make sure that thing heals up, so we’re not going to push him too quickly. I don’t know if he’ll be able to play next week [but] hopefully he’ll be ready for Buffalo.”
