On Sunday against the Eagles, the Skins managed to turn a 1st and goal on the Eagles 3 yard line into 3 points, thanks in large part to a 12 men on the field penalty on 3rd down. The reason? Center Casey Rabach broke his left hand (fortunately not his snapping hand) and had to be run off the field in favor of replacement Joe Molinaro. The man weighs 300 pounds, so running off the field quickly is no easy task.
Rabach had surgery yesterday to insert 3 pins into his left wrist. That could make it difficult for him to start this coming Sunday against the Saints. So you're saying there's a chance?
By the way, the Redskins are one of four teams in the entire league to start the entire year with the same line. The other three? Dallas, Philly, and Chicago. Continuity is great, but results are better.
Jon Jansen is also "uncertain" for this Sunday's game as he has been playing through a calf injury for some weeks now. And now I'm a bit concerned about it:
From the same article, Chris Samuels wants Derrick Dockery back (that's cute):
"I think they need to bring Derrick back," Samuels said. "We have been together for a while. We've had our growing pains, but I think we're playing real solid football together.
"I really don't want to spend time learning to play with somebody else. Derrick has worked really hard and he got his weight down. He's playing extremely well. Hopefully they'll bring him back. I think everything will work out."
Readers, your thoughts on the State of our Offensive Line?
