Blame U2. The normal Monday night/Tuesday charting the game got postponed a few days to attend the great U2 concert Tuesday night at The House Jack Built.
Here are the playing time totals for the Redskins in last week’s loss at Detroit. All results are unofficial. Counted are spikes and penalty plays but not penalties like delay of game.
OFFENSE (59 plays)
RB: Clinton Portis 32, Rock Cartwright 8, Mike Sellers 21, Ladell Betts 9.
WR: Devin Thomas 11, Malcolm Kelly 51, Antwaan Randle El 32, Santana Moss 53.
TE: Chris Cooley 56, Fred Davis 5, Todd Yoder 1.
Analysis: Portis left the game with a calf injury in the fourth quarter and wasn’t on the field for the final two drives. … Cartwright got rare offensive playing time in the final two drives when a gassed Betts took a few plays off. … RG Will Montgomery played one official snap (and a penalty play) when Chad Rinehart had a chin strap issue. … Yoder played his first offensive snap of the year — the fourth-and-goal run that ended the opening drive.
DEFENSE (79 plays)
DL: Kedric Golston 52, Lorenzo Alexander 14, Jeremy Jarmon 16, Albert Haynesworth 36, Phillip Daniels 42, Cornelius Griffin 60, Andre Carter 73.
LB: Rocky McIntosh 68, H.B. Blades 13, London Fletcher 68, Chris Wilson 15, Brian Orakpo 68.
DB: Carlos Rogers 63, DeAngelo Hall 79, Fred Smoot 35, LaRon Landry 79, Reed Doughty 30, Chris Horton 49, Justin Tryon 7.
Analysis: Fletcher played every snap last year but came off the field for one play in the second quarter with an equipment problem and then missed seven second-half plays with a rib injury. … On the 17-play drive to finish the first half, Fletcher, Rogers, Hall, Landry and Doughty were on the field the entire time. … An ankle injury kept Rogers off the field for 11 plays in the second quarter.
