Chris Baker


Most NFL teams can survive the effects of one injury, or even a few if they are spread out among a few different units on the roster.


Last Sunday in Houston, Barry Cofield started his 81st consecutive game. It was the longest active streak of consecutive starts among NFL defensive tackles.


If there's dancing, that means something went right. An important fill-in on Washington's defensive line is hoping he'll be cutting the rug on Sunday.


With Barry Cofield sidelined until mid-November with a high ankle sprain, Chris Baker will slide over from left end and start in Cofield’s place, Baker said Wednesday at Redskins Park.


Tight end Jordan Reed and nose tackle Barry Cofield both could be sidelined due to injuries suffered Sunday in Houston, Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said Monday afternoon.
