Redskins Park

Executive Vice President/Head Coach Mike Shanahan

On the team’s injury report:

“The people listed as questionable will be [cornerback Jerome] Murphy, [kicker Kai] Forbath, [linebacker Brandon] Jenkins, [tight end Jordan] Reed and [tight end Fred] Davis. Probable: [wide receiver Leonard] Hankerson, [linebacker Ryan] Kerrigan, and [safety Brandon] Meriweather. We’ll get a chance to work out the questionable guys over at their stadium on Saturday afternoon.”

On Forbath’s condition and what he was able to do in practice today:

“He did kick today. It went pretty good.”

On if Forbath worked on field goals and kickoffs today:

“He just did some field goals today.”

On if there’s more he needs to see from Forbath before Sunday:


On what signs he’ll look for to determine if Forbath is ready to play:

“Well, he kicked, I think, a 48-yarder today. He didn’t try anything farther than that. Tomorrow we’ll try a little bit more to see if there’s any tug on that area. If not, he should be ready to go. If he feels like he can kickoff and take a full stride then he’ll play.”

On if the length of the flight is a concern for guys that are battling injuries:

“We have a big plane. We actually run these guys up and down the aisle – it’s about 100 yards, something around a 100-yard range – so we’ll get some exercise on the plane [laughing].”

On the practice statuses of Davis and Reed:

“They were limited. We’ll check them out tomorrow.”

On the Raiders’ quarterback situation heading into Sunday:

“I can guess what they’re going to do but I don’t know for sure. You just kind of have a little experience, kind of look in the paper if guys will play or not, but I don’t know for sure.”
