Week 7 Preview: Skins Travel South to Carolina

Posted By Mercedes Green On Oct 20 2011 @ 3:21 pm In Washington Redskins | No Comments

The 3-2 Washington Redskins travel a little south to play the 1-5 Carolina Panthers and in typical Redskins fashion, we’re in the midst of yet another quarterback switch.  Mike Shanahan announced on Wednesday that John Beck would be replacing Rex Grossman to start the game against Carolina.

What’s even more worrisome for the Redskins offense is the loss of multiple O-Line players to injuries and the complete shift of positions.  Trent Williams in out for a few weeks, Kory Lichtensteiger is now on injury reserve, R Maurice Hurt has been signed from the practice squad.

The offensive rankings are just terrible from only a couple weeks and have to potential to get worse if Beck does not turn things around, the new O-Line can provide some protection to Beck and get the running game back.  However, if this O-Line crumbles, the passing and rush game goes with it and must rely on our defensive players to intercept and run for our points.  Ugh.

If you want something to look forward to though, look no further than the defense and Jim Haslett.  The Skins are rated #6 overall in defense.  But can you win a game or a division with just good D?

Projected injuries for the game are as follows.  Very upsetting that I will not get to see Cooley play in Toronto on October 30th.  Hope he’s there still!

Name Position Injury Practice Status
Anthony Armstrong WR Hamstring Full Participation in Practice
Byron Westbrook CB Hamstring Limited Participation in Practice
Chris Cooley TE Finger Out (Definitely Will Not Play)
Oshiomogho Atogwe S Knee Did Not Participate In Practice
Phillip Buchanon CB Neck Full Participation in Practice
Tim Hightower RB Shoulder Full Participation in Practice
Trent Williams T Ankle Did Not Participate In Practice
