CSN Washington dot com. For more let's bring in our Redskins insider for CSN Washington dot com tar -- -- share. Start the offensive line has been riddled with injuries thus far what's the latest on that fraud and Washington have enough players to protect RG three on Saturday. Well it seems like get their offensive line is getting more healthy Trent Williams Maurice -- Chris Chester all participated in practice. And more importantly did a lot in team drills. But it seems like Mike Shanahan is gonna err on the side of caution because all three -- -- in the final fifteen minutes. When I asked him about the injury situation after practice he said he's gonna go his gut. He's gonna wait over the next 48 hours before deciding whether those three are able to go on Saturday against the Bears. The running back competition has also been slow to develop what are the chances of seeing Tim Hightower against the Bears. You know I think Tim Hightower still probably at least one pre season game away from being able to play may be too I talked to him today for about five minutes they told me that he stealing. A lot better probably the best he -- since he had the knee operated on. On the one thing after missing about our conversation is he said that he's not only focus on being. A better player than he was before the injury last year he wants to become a better and more vocal leader in the room. But I'd be very surprised that we saw him against the Bears I would say more likely against Indy also -- Alou has also pretty much been ruled out of our Saturdays game in Chicago by Mike Shanahan. And -- in defense of news what does the team doing to fill the void at nose tackle not a Chris Neil most of the season. Well you know Chris Neil had been the primary back up to Barry Cofield now that job falls on Chris Baker. Hi Chris Baker is a guy who missed significant time last year with a -- I -- muscle in his in his quad and it seems like he's ready to go. I talked to him a little bit earlier today and he said he worked really hard in the offseason to shed a little weight but more importantly work on his conditioning which is important because. Jim Haslett has said he wants to spell Cofield a little bit more this year which means that if baker is able to play he's gonna get significant playing time. Our target of a share with the latest from Redskins park appreciated tar thanks Michael. CSN Washington dot com.
