[Note by Skin Patrol, 09/02/08 5:24 PM EDT ] Promoted, edited very slightly. Shawn Springs is a gametime decision and I hope this isn't one of those injuries that just lingers on and on and on and on. Stay tuned.
The Redskins Insider reporting on more doom and gloom.
X-rays of Shawn Springs' leg (which swelled after he was kicked in practice Monday) were negative and the team said he has a bruised calf. He's likely to be a game-time decision Thursday, a la Jason Taylor.
That's just freaking great. It's not good enough that our offense is banged up, but now our starting CB is a game-time decision as well. Our defense better get a pass rush on Eli Manning or it could be a very long evening. I wonder if the team might take a look at FA CB Ricky Manning Jr.; It is this blogger's opinion that we can't count on our very young depth in the secondary to be able to hold other teams WR's at bay (ED Note: especially this early in the season). They need Springs' wisdom back in the secondary, along with his talent.
