Santana Moss has the dreaded hamstring injury. (Somebody alert ESPN, its obvious this is just a battle of wills between Moss and Joe Gibbs. Where's Ed Werder?) Anyway, he hasn't practiced in two weeks and is a game-time decision.
Moss missed both practices before the Redskins' bye week and has not participated in either practice this week with a sore left hamstring. He did not want to provide details on his status, preferring to let his appearance on the field -- or his non-appearance -- speak for itself.
The Redskins are so wrapped up in buying players; they forgot you can actually draft them! I know, it's stunning. Check out the love for our draft class from a couple of years ago from the WaPo blog.
DeMarcus Ware, who can be downright dominant at times and seems to really get up for games with Washington, was taken 11th overall and end Marcus Spears, another force in their 3-4 system, was grabbed with the 20th pick. Kevin Burnett, a valuable back-up and situational player at the linebacker position, came in the second round. End Chris Canty, playing just down the road at UVA, is another key starter for the Cowboys, and he was taken in the fourth round, 132nd overall. Jay Ratliff, a defensive tackle with three sacks as a back-up (more than any Redskin player), was Dallas's final pick in the draft, 224th overall (seventh round).
