“Mentally you’re kind of nervous that it’s going to tweak again,” he said. “That’s what all the rehab is for, just to start thinking positive about the injury and that your able to sustain anything you’re capable of doing.”

Extra points

* The Redskins must reduce their roster to 80 players by 4 p.m. Tuesday. They have to cut eight players and officially put Jenkins on injured reserve. Going from 90 to 80 is not hard,” Shanahan said.

c Wide receiver Malcolm Kelly (sore right foot) is not a candidate for injured reserve.

“He doesn’t have that type of injury,” Shanahan said. “I hope he’s back in the next few days.”

c Return specialist Brandon Banks (left knee) practiced Monday, as did running back Ryan Torain (broken left hand). Both are expected to play Thursday against Tampa Bay.

Torain has missed all three preseason games. Shanahan has a good idea of what Torain can do because he started eight games last season, “but you’ve got to stay healthy too,” Shanahan said. “You have setbacks, you’ve still got to come back and play well.”

c Tight end Chris Cooley (left knee) did not practice.
