November 8-- Moss might be a go in Philly

Injuries: WR Santana Moss did limited work in practice but Joe Gibbs called his progression a “step up.” It appears as if Moss has a legitimate shot to play this weekend against Philadelphia, he is listed as questionable (hamstring)
TE Christian Fauria was held out of practice (ankle) and is questionable..
WR David Patten returned to practice, he is probable with a hamstring injury
CB Carlos Rogers practiced (thumb) probable..
T Jon Jansen was limited in practice (calf) probable.. Joe Gibbs said he doesn’t believe the injury is any worse then it was last week when Jansen was forced to ice his right calf in between each offensive series..
TE Chris Cooley practiced (shoulder) probable.. he says he has a high tolerance for pain..
QB Mark Brunell is not on the injury list but did not practice to “rest.”

Eagles injury list: DT Mike Patterson (hand) probable, CB Lito Sheppard (hand/ankle) probable, RB Brian Westbrook (ankle/knee) probable None of these players missed Wednesdays practice for Philadelphia..

Joe Gibbs joked that because he hasn’t found an answer for his team’s inability to play better in the 3rd quarter that he might start stopping practice and announcing, “It is now the 3rd quarter.” The Redskins have been outscored 43-0 in the last 4 4th quarters combined..

The Redskins defense now ranks 30th in the NFL.. Marcus Washington and Gibbs both agreed that the team showed some signs of improvement this past weekend despite giving up nearly 400 yards of offense and dropping in the rankings from 26th to 30th.. The Eagles are the league’s number one ranked offense but they do it predominantly through the air.. Gibbs said if he had the same personnel namely Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook he would probably run his offense the same way because that is “their strength.”

Mark Brunell could not come up with what he believes the identity of the offense is when asked.. he said last week was a confidence builder and he believes the offense is “getting better.” Whether the team will become more run oriented as they were a week ago and in their run at the end of last season is something to watch.. Chris Cooley said the total comfort of the offense for everyone has led to more productive moments for him and that he doesn’t feel as if he has had better games per se the last few weeks..

Gibbs talked openly that he would like to see the league drop the inactive rule and allow teams to keep all 53 players on Sundays active and at a team’s disposal.. he said an initiative might be in order after the season and he doesn’t know why the current rule stands that you must deactivate 7 players and announce who a 3rd quarterback is.. I agree.. It’s a silly rule that only hurts teams when they have injury issues like the Skins had at WR..

Eagles safety Brian Dawkins said he talks to his former teammate Troy Vincent just about every day calling him a big brother and said he is missed by the Eagles.. Dawkins believes his locker room, though not the same as a couple of years back in terms of the core personnel has the same ability to be the dominant team in the East.. The Eagles are currently on a 3 game losing streak, they had a four game losing streak last season during the TO/McNabb circus season, prior to that, they hadn’t had a four game slide since Andy Reid’s first season as head coach back in the late 90’s.. This will be the 3rd time the Redskins have faced a team coming off their bye week in 9 games..
