Banged-up Redskins lose Anderson, Simpson for year
— Artis Hicks missed the game with a thigh injury, so Will Montgomery started at right guard. When Rabach got hurt, Montgomery moved to center and Derrick Dockery entered at right guard. Dockery then left the game with a knee injury, forcing backup tackle Stephen Heyer into the game — even though Heyer has never taken a snap at guard, even in practice.
Shanahan didn’t offer anything new on Hicks, but the coach said his initial reports indicate Dockery won’t be able to practice for at least a couple of days.
— Safety LaRon Landry, the unofficial MVP of the defense, could be out for a while with an ailing left Achilles’ tendon. Landry had been playing with the injury for several weeks, but he didn’t even make the trip to Nashville. Shanahan said he’s “98 percent sure” Landry won’t play against Minnesota.
— Linebacker Rocky McIntosh injured a groin Saturday, and Shanahan said after the game the injury is “fairly severe.” The coach will have an update Wednesday.
— Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander, the Redskins‘ best special teams player, also has a hamstring injury. Shanahan couched himself by saying it’s the type of injury that can rule a player out for a “few days” or a “few weeks” — not a good sign for the player who caused a key turnover early against the Titans.
— Defensive lineman Jeremy Jarmon could also be out for a while after injuring a hamstring during Friday’s practice. Said Shanahan: “He tweaked that hamstring pretty good.”
— The good news was that the four players who left the game and returned — Santana Moss, DeAngelo Hall, Brian Orakpo and Kedric Golston — are all fine.
All the injuries give the Redskins (5-5) an even steeper climb to make the playoffs, with Philadelphia (7-3) and the New York Giants (6-4) holding the top two spots in the NFL East.
Shanahan can only hope the subs can keep playing as well as they did Sunday.
“I think we all just raised our game more,” Heyer said, “knowing that we had such a weird situation.”
