Injury Update

Here’s the injury update after the Redskins’ final practice of the week.

All of Washington’s ailing players except rookie receiver Malcolm Kelly (ankle) took full practice on Friday. Kelly was limited, but like receiver James Thrash (ankle) and linebackers Marcus Washington (hamstring) and Khary Campbell (thigh), he expects to play.

Campbell pronounced himself “good enough to play” while Washington gave the thumbs-up signal.

“I’m full speed and good to go,” Kelly said.

“It was my first full day [this week] and it feels good,” Thrash said.

Coach Jim Zorn isn’t quite so sure about his ailing receivers but won’t promote Devin Aromashodu from the practice squad even if it means that veterans Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El and rookie Devin Thomas are his only active wideouts. Tight ends Chris Cooley and Fred Davis could line up wide in a pinch.

“We’ve got two more days,” Zorn said. “I’m hoping that they can both go. We’ll make adjustments if neither one can. Devin is actually in the mix. He’s starting to play now. He’s at the tail end of what I would call his training camp [after missing 18 days in camp with a hamstring]. He’s starting to play faster.”
