MOSLEY: Anyone interest in playing WR for the skins?


Recommended Posts


It took Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell nine games to locate a wide receiver in the end zone. But after a rash of injuries, he's simply hoping to find one on the roster.

In case you don't read my pal Jason La Canfora's blog, the Redskins' alleged No. 1 receiver, Santana Moss, is questionable for Sunday's game in Dallas because of a bruised heel. James Thrash, who scored twice against the Eagles, has a high-ankle sprain. Antwaan Randle El has played through a hamstring injury and Brandon Lloyd has checked out for the season with a broken collarbone.

At this point, it looks like 37-year-old Keenan McCardell and seldom-used Reche Caldwell could see significant playing time against Dallas. Oh, and Jimmy Farris is back in town for an encore performance.

Before T.O. took Sam Hurd on as his little buddy in Dallas, he had Farris in San Francisco. In a strange sidenote that will mean very little Sunday, Farris was at T.O.'s apartment last September when he had his accidental overdose (The DMN has air-brushed my name out for no apparent reason).

Anyway, all the injuries at receiver have caused Campbell to make some really cryptic statements regarding Sunday's game.

"How do you think it makes me feel as a quarterback?" Campbell told reporters Thursday while Jack Wagner's "All I Need" blared in the background. "Right when we start to do some different things as far as a passing standpoint goes, all your guys are getting hurt. It's like a bug going around. And to have them going out with one of the biggest games of the year coming up, and we're already short-handed, it makes it tough."

It's funny to read that Campbell is so upset about losing receivers he's rarely been able to utilize. Cowboys cornerback Jacques Reeves sat at his locker earlier today and asked reporters for the latest Redskins injury report.

"Thrash is out too?" he said. "Who else do they have?"

The player Reeves and the other Cowboys corners may fear the most is left tackle Chris Samuels.

"Did you see him hit [Charles] Woodson?" asked Reeves. "And he got Al Harris, too."

This is what it's come to with the Redskins' offense. Their most dangerous player is a left tackle.

(Save yourself the email. I know Clinton Portis is playing well. It was simply a throwaway line!)

Have a special, special weekend and I'll meet you back here Monday with more groundbreaking insight.
