First thing first, LB Matt Sinclair is the latest Redskin to turn in his playbook. Cindy Boren of Redskins Insider with the news:
He bumped into Jason Reid and Paul Tenorio at Redskins Park and told them he has three fractures in a lumbar vertebra (the L-5; we are seeking a little medical clarification on that). "They let me go," he said. "It's going to be at least three months so they had to make room on the roster."
I had heard he was injured and could miss some serious time so I guess the team waited for clarification and when they got it, well down comes the ax. By my count the Redskins have to cut one more player to 75 by 4 p.m. Tuesday and then the big roster trim to 53 by 4 p.m. Saturday. Again why is Derek Devine still on this team?
It's better to just try and forget about our last preseason game against Carolina. In my best Forrest Gump voice: "and that's all I'm going to say about that". Maybe so but don't tell Coach Zorn & Antwaaan Randle EL that. Coach Zorn said after the teams performance that the starters better prepare to see some playing time. I'm glad ARE thought: "Yeah, no doubt we have to do this," and "With the way we played, it's just the right thing to do."
It's great to see that Washington Redskins players have pride and want to hit the regular season with some momentum but for me one series that looks like our starters have rhythm is enough. Last week has horrid I know, but I'm not sure risking injury is worth whatever possible momentum obtained by a good drive in the preseason. How would you gameplan?
