Shanahan on playing for pride, Redskins injuries

Mike Shanahan told the media, and in turn his team, that he expects the Redskins to keep playing hard the rest of the season despite being eliminated from playoff contention. Shanahan added that players determined to give less than full effort will not be around in 2014.

So with Shanahan's play-hard-or-leave gauntlet thrown down, are there any players that need to be on their best behavior? Certainly there are players going through subpar seasons, but is effort an issue for anyone?

By all accounts, the guys in the locker room don't think so, as they continue to voice support for fellow teammates. Following the Giants loss, Alfred Morris said that he will keep playing hard for "his brothers" in the locker room, no matter how bad it looks from the outside.

So you tell us, are any players on particularly thin ice? There have been problems in the secondary, the offensive line, and elsewhere throughout the roster. Will you be watching any one specific in the Redskins last four games? Let us know!
