RICHMOND—Redskins safety Phillip Thomas is scheduled to visit foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte on Tuesday, coach Mike Shanahan said.
Washington’s fourth-round pick sprained the middle of his left foot during Thursday’s preseason win over Tennessee. He fell awkwardly over top on it during the first half when he tried to tackle running back Shonn Greene.
“Hopefully there’s no setback there, but we’d like a specialist to look at it just to make sure,” Shanahan said.
Receiver Donte Stallworth (left hamstring), linebackers Roddrick Muckelroy (right shoulder) and Jeremy Kimbrough (right shoulder) sat out team drills Monday. Injured cornerback Ryan Mouton and tight end Emmanuel Ogbuehi also sat out. Receiver Devery Henderson’s absence was excused for personal reasons.
Safety Brandon Meriweather (right knee) increased his participation in practice. “I thought he looked good,” Shanahan said. “He had one breakup today that I was impressed with down the field. So hopefully there’s no setback, and he can keep on getting better.”
Tight end Jordan Reed (right foot) practiced. He would play Monday night against Pittsburgh if he does not suffer a setback in the meantime.
The Redskins restructured Tuesday’s practice schedule. They will have their walkthrough at 10 a.m. and practice at 3:20, as opposed to having one practice at 12:40 p.m.
