Injury Forecast Is Mostly Cloudy

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 14, 2011 – 7:47 pm

The Redskins have been fortunate to avoid any major injuries (knock on wood) to this point, but remain cautious with a few key players that haven’t seen the playing field in a while.  Head coach Mike Shanahan had the scoop on the group after practice today.

The day after a win (albeit preseason) can be one of the most relaxing days of the week, and gives players a chance to reflect and bask in their own glory.  Yesterday’s day off was just that sort of day, and Redskins took to Twitter to chronicle their relaxation.

Ryan Kerrigan and Terrence Austin spent some time reflecting on the team’s performance the night before:
