Hello MHR. This is Kevin, the SB Nation writer for the Redskins site, Hogs Haven. If you have any Redskins-related questions, feel free to ask in the comments and we'll answer em. Couple notes for the game:
- Portis is out (much against his will)
- Skins have 3 undrafted lineman starting this week (yea, it's really bad. Campbell was getting sacked on 3-step drops last week)
- Haynesworth and the defense have played well this year (except for poor tackling at the most opportune times)
- Yes, Skins fans are still banned from bringing in signs to the stadium, though it all started when the negativity began towards the ownership
- Skins are decimated by injuries. Chris Samuels, Randy Thomas, and starting SS Chris Horton are all on IR...almost every other player is limping through practice. Portis' backup, Ladell Betts, was out Thursday but is expected to play. Of course Chris Cooley is still on crutches.
We're hoping the short week and cross-country trip helps us eek a win...we're not holding our breath though.
