Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett is among Washington Redskins assistant coaches who received contract extensions during the offseason, coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday.
Shanahan declined to reveal details of the assistants’ contracts, but people familiar with the situation said the coaches, including special teams coordinator Danny Smith, are signed through at least the 2013 season.
Cornerback Josh Wilson and tight end Fred Davis participated in practice Wednesday after suffering head injuries against St. Louis three days earlier.
Wilson, who was diagnosed with a concussion, has been cleared to play, coach Mike Shanahan said. He was limited in Wednesday’s practice.
“It’s definitely something serious,” Wilson said. “Anytime you’re talking about your brain or your body at all, all these injuries are something you need to take into account in full, not just long-term affect but short-term affect, being able to do what I need to do on the field.”
Amidst a sea of big-rimmed Escalades and decked-out BMWs, the NFL’s leading rookie rusher rolls into Redskins Park on 14s.
Alfred Morris, the sixth-round draft pick who was anointed the Washington Redskins surprise starter and is currently tied for first in the NFC in rushing touchdowns, is still driving his 1991 Nissan 626 to work.
It’s got all the amenities: cloth seats, power steering, tape deck, AM and FM radio and has the added bonus of being made the same year the Redskins last won a Super Bowl.
unday’s 31-28 loss was barely over when the Redskins starting talking about replacement officials who had lost control and Rams players who were engaged in too much rough stuff after the whistle.
A few days have gone by, but it’s still too raw to let it rest. Griffin is going to handle the ball a lot this year — he already had 20 rushes in addition to 55 pass attempts — so the Redskins don’t want him taking any extra hits, especially ones that he feels aren’t clean.
