December 21-- Pro Bowl is Out

Wr Santana Moss was named to his first pro bowl, T Chris Samuels was anmed to his third.. The Redskins had no defensive players named to the roster.. Joe Gibbs described the news as a dissapointment saying he was happy for the two players who received the honor but said he wasn't pleased with the lack of representation.. Among those the team particularly felt were snubs, LB Marcus washington, CB Shawn Springs, G Randy Thomas and QB Mark Brunnell..
Chris Cooley and Clinton Portis were named first alternates and Sean Taylor and Marcus Washington were named second alternates.. Washington was the only Redskin invitee to the pro bowl a seaosn ago..

LB LaVar Arrington did practice on Wednesday and is listed as questionable for the NYG game with a thigh bruise, he is expected to be able to play on Saturday..
CB Carlos Rogers did not practice on Wednesday and is questionable with a torn biceps, Joe Gibbs said it would take a lot for him to be able to play this weekend..
CB Shawn Springs was held out of practice as well with back/groin injuries, he is probable..
T Chris Samuels did not practice with knee/ankle injuries, he is probable.. Samuels says he expects to have to undergo potential scope procedures on his ankle and knee following the season..
S Matt Bowen is listed as probable, (knee)

NYG injuries: LB Antonio Pierce (high ankle sprain) is out for the game, LB Carlos Emmons (pectoral) doubttful, DT Williams Joseph (ankle) doubtful, FB Jim Finn (ankle) questionable, T Kareem McKenzie (hamstring) questionable, T Luke Petitgout (back) questionable, LB Reggie Torbor (calf) questionable..

Ray Brown said his hope for this season would be that it ended up in the playoffs.. Brown is going to be starting for the injured Randy Thomas for the Skins final two regular season games saying his age (43) is something that he isn't going to focus on even though he knows everyone else will.. All he says he has to do is block people which he believes he remains very capable of.. When asked what is different about the NFL now then 20 years ago when he started playing, Brown succinctly said, "I make a lot more money now."

Most of the players characterized the first meeting with the NYG (36-0 NY) as just one of those days that got away from them.. No one had any particular explanations about what happened that day otehr tto say that they haven't tweaked a lot in terms of preparing for the this meeting.. Phillip Daniels said that Antonio Pierce's hints of running to the weak side was not a huge factor in why the Giants were able to run it so effectively against Washington.. Daniels was named the NFC's Defensive player of the week after getting four sacks in the Dallas game..

In case you missed it, the Skins signed OL Ikechuku Ndukwe from the practice squad to take the roster spot vacated by Thomas.. The team also inked OL Jim Jones and TE David Kashetta to their practice squad..
