Over the final two games, then, players will keep trying to prove they fit into that classification. The playoffs are out of reach, but if the previous five games are a good indication, you wont be able to tell.
“Right now, we’re just playing and having fun,” Moss said Sunday. “This is something we should have been doing a long time ago. We’re going out there, our mind isn’t really on nothing, no negative plays, no negative thoughts.
“Instead of letting it get you down and you folding your tail or tanking out, you just go out there and say, ‘Hey, lets make it next time.’ “
Notes: Cornerback Josh Wilson was “woozy” after absorbing a hit late in Sunday’s game, Shanahan said. He will be evaluated again before practice Tuesday.
• Shanahan regretted not noticing sooner that running back Roy Helu played hurt. “A little bit of a toe; had a knee; just a little beat up,” Shanahan said. Helu had 53 yards on 23 carries.
• Shanahan received clarification from the NFL that Trent Williams and Fred Davis are allowed to be at team headquarters during their suspensions, but he wouldnt publicize their arrangement until speaking to the players later this week.
