“It’s all about being a family and having thick skin,” fullback Mike Sellers said. “You pray on it, you try to get past it, but it’s hard. With Sean, it was hard for me to concentrate because we were so close. You don’t wish that on anybody.”
The Redskins’ offensive line, ravaged all season by injuries, suffered its latest hit when right tackle Stephon Heyer missed Thursday’s practice after tweaking his knee the previous day. Zorn said he expects Heyer to return Friday, which would be encouraging news for a club short on depth up front.
Will Robinson, who has spent the bulk of the season on the practice squad and has yet to appear on the field, was at right tackle in practice Thursday.
Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth (ankle) and cornerback D’Angelo Hall (knee) returned to practice, but each was limited. Sellers, defensive tackle Cornelius Griffin and safety Kareem Moore also were limited.
Kicker Graham Gano has a sore right ankle and was kept from kicking off during practice. He did attempt several field goals and showed no ill effects.
