Cooley insists he’ll be ready for season opener
Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau was the special guest at Monday’s practice, spending the afternoon at Redskins Park with his son, Brady, enjoying the football while also soaking in some beneficial tactics.
“There’s some great ideas that football does and I think hockey can use, and I’m sure hockey has things that football players can use,” Boudreau said. “It’s sort of like sharing knowledge, and I think it’s pretty interesting.”
During Boudreau’s first visit to the facility in Ashburn, prompted by an invite from special teams coach Danny Smith, he met coach Mike Shanahan and talked about the variety of different coaches and systems the Redskins go through. Shanahan, naturally, wanted to chat about Joe Sakic, who led the Colorado Avalanche to two Stanley Cups during the coach’s time with the Denver Broncos.
“I think it’d be neat if the players saw what goes on out here - just the specialized things and how the progression of practice goes and the length of it,” Boudreau said. “I thought it was quite an eye-opening experience.”
• Mike Sellers is expected to return to fullback in the second half of Thursday’s game against Baltimore, Mike Shanahan said. Sellers, an 11-year veteran, was moved from fullback to tight end at the start of training camp and played with the reserves in both preseason games. …
• Right tackle Jammal Brown injured the ring finger on his right hand. He was scheduled for X-rays after practice, but Shanahan did not believe it was fractured. …
Shanahan said the following injured players won’t play Thursday: safety LaRon Landry (hamstring), receiver Brandon Banks (knee), receiver Malcolm Kelly (foot) and linebacker Edgar Jones (concussion). Defensive end Adam Carriker (severe heel blisters) might play. …
• The Redskins released running back James Davis, who was put on the reserve/left team list after leaving training camp unexpectedly Aug. 15.
