Csnwashington.com. Thank you joining me now is our Redskins insider Tarik el Bashir thanks for joining us -- lets get straight to a lot of injuries to address here for the Redskins after the bye and we get. Kind of seems we might be getting a few guys back and start on defense. Brandon meriwether couple false starts and coming back this season but it looks like he could be making his debut against the Eagles if he is back what kind of an impact will he have.
Well you know it looks like he's going to be able to play he practiced on Monday. Now he said he wants to get through the week to make sure he's going to be able to go on Sunday in singles but his impact could be significant you know this is a secondary that's really struggled this year especially in pass coverage. They're the thirtieth ranked team in yards allowed per game and here. Dead last tied for dead last in touchdowns allowed now here's he's a veteran presence he told me the other day that not only it does he expect to bring some veteran leadership. And talent to the back end he said he also feels like he's going to be able to it. What the guys have some funny that the one thing you -- watching from afar. The DBs don't think what they're having any fun he's so he's kind of characteristic shall I say and -- know he's at it we're having fun we're gonna play better.
Right I imagine when you give up so many big plays it it is hard my demoralized just having. That's fun aspect let's get down to the offense -- wide receiver Pierre goes on he's been battling this injury foot injury for probably about six weeks now. He was back at practice it would be the -- and the season at all.
You know that's a great question this is a critical week for Pierre I would say if he doesn't have a lot of progress as we put that on that toe on his right foot for the injured in the season opener. They might opt for surgery on me he said he wants to do all he can to avoid having surgery. But you know it's not getting better is a much better at this point he said there's been a little bit of progress we sit still hurts some walking hurts running hurts cutting hurts so you know we hear that in week ten. You start thinking that maybe it's time to to have surgery in Kansas get ready for next year.
That's not something to -- big and Oliver for up to carry out all Jammal Brown he was cleared to play. Been battling a hip injury will he be back to you know.
We didn't even hear the name Jammal Brown for the past couple months member he was hurt in conditioning drill on the eve of training camp. I was put on the pup list and kind of was forgotten about him mean because that is my first -- the team I didn't even see him that much maybe once or twice. Exactly so I see -- seven walked on the practice field and I ever was kind of surprised but you know again it's also a critical time for him the Redskins as of today have two weeks to decide whether to act. Activate them or put him on the season ending IR. I'm thinking he wants to play and he's into all we can get back -- he'll -- his horse if he is activate the question is. As he had it ready in game shape so you know yes. Thank you very much heart we appreciate it. CSN Washington dot com.
