Special teams and the secondary are in question once again for Washington as the Bears roll into FedEx Field to take on the Redskins in Week 7.
Two of the Redskins' top special teams players are done for the season. Reserve linebacker Bryan Kehl sustained a torn ACL in his left knee in the second quarter, and longtime long snapper Nick Sundberg tore the meniscus in his right knee.
Five questions Redskins beat writer Brian McNally has heading into Washington’s Sunday afternoon game against the Detroit Lions:
The Redskins own the NFL's second-oldest 53-man roster, but made mistakes you'd expect from a group not stocked with veterans. Two forgettable games into the season, they aren't a disciplined football team.
No uniform, khaki or burgundy, completely holds the 26-year-old Kettani. He spent three years on active duty, deployed aboard the frigate U.S.S. Klakring with 20-hour days and enough stress to make high-pressure situations seem normal.
While coach Mike Shanahan and the Washington Redskins' coaching staff squirm over the status of quarterback Robert Griffin III's right knee, they turn their attention this week to improving the quality of a roster that entered the offseason with the unfamiliar title of NFC East champions.
Kai Forbath had nerves, "just a little more than normal." A few teammates did, too. The game and the Washington Redskins' playoff hopes were on the line as the rookie kicker — who was perfect in his NFL career — stepped onto the field in overtime.
Although Pierre Garcon will try to test his sprained right foot after the bye week, the injured Washington Redskins wide receiver voiced little optimism Tuesday about the problem getting better anytime soon.
When Fred Davis took off his gloves on the sideline Sunday, Chris Cooley had a bad feeling that the Washington Redskins' starting tight end was done for the season.
Pierre Garcon gave it a go Sunday trying to play his third straight game despite a lingering right foot injury. But the Washington Redskins receiver didn't even attend practice Thursday and won't be on the field Friday.
The Washington Redskins will try out kickers Tuesday in the wake of Billy Cundiff's recent inaccurate field-goal attempts, coach Mike Shanahan said.
Nick Sundberg knew his left arm was broken, but it was up to Washington Redskins long snapper whether he'd stay in Sunday's game. He watched center Will Montgomery practicing long snaps on the sideline with holder Sav Rocca and his mind was made up.
The Washington Redskins signed long snapper Justin Snow to replace Nick Sundberg, who was put on injured reserve with a broken left arm. Snow was signed Tuesday after a workout at Redskins Park. He spent the past 12 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.
Long snapper Nick Sundberg entered the locker room Monday at Redskins Park with a cast that extended past his elbow, the result of suffering a broken left arm in the second quarter of the Redskins' 40-32 victory at New Orleans on Sunday.
The Washington Redskins would have been more than content to sit on their 13-point lead going into halftime Sunday. Robert Griffin III had the Superdome quiet and the New Orleans Saints wondering what they could do to change the game.
"I tried to dress up for the event," he told Kettani's family with a smile before the ceremony.
"To support and defend."
