Donovan McNabb's status unknown
EmailPrintComments
Associated Press
ASHBURN, Va. -- It could be a smoke screen or just a cautious assessment of his quarterback's health, but Mike Shanahan says he's not certain that Donovan McNabb will be available for the Washington Redskins' season opener against the Dallas Cowboys.

"I really don't know for sure," Shanahan said Sunday. "That's why it's day by day. We'll see how it goes."

NFC East blog
ESPN.com's Matt Mosley writes about all things NFC East in his division blog.

McNabb hasn't practiced since spraining his left ankle in the second preseason game against Baltimore. He sat out Friday's game against the New York Jets and watched Sunday's practice with a black sleeve on his left leg.

Shanahan said the leg is too sore for McNabb to play this week against the Arizona Cardinals, but McNabb likely wouldn't have played in that game anyway because the coach prefers to rest his starter in the final exhibition to avoid injury.

However, backup quarterback Rex Grossman said he won't play this week either, perhaps as an insurance policy to make sure at least one of the top two quarterbacks on the roster is ready to go against the Cowboys on Sept. 12.

That leaves bubble quarterbacks John Beck and Richard Bartel taking the snaps Thursday at Arizona.

The news from Shanahan was more positive concerning running back Clinton Portis, who sprained his right ankle against the Jets.

"I don't think it's too serious. It's not a big setback," Shanahan said. "I would anticipate him being able to practice in a couple of days."

Fullback Mike Sellers, who missed the Jets game, remains day to day with a sprained left knee. Backup linebacker Perry Riley sprained his right ankle against New York and was wearing a walking boot Sunday.

He's starting, shit isn't going down like this.

I would be very surprised if he is not the quarterback in two weeks...

The fact that they're not going to play Grossman on Thursday, does tell me there is some concern, however.

Well even if he's starting they can't lie on the injury report. Well, I guess they could but the fact remains that McNabb isn't 100% and if the Dallas game was tomorrow, chances are Rex Grossman would be the starting QB.

And while this isn't anything to panick about, the underlying and underreported story, in my opinion, is every little nick and bruise McNabb gets between now and whenever he signs an extension will impact for how long and for how much.

Two weeks to go no need to get worked up yet IMO.

Don't expect an extension to even be offered til after the season at the earliest, and the current situation is exactly why they haven't offered one. To offer an extension to a guy who hasn't taken one official game snap for the franchise and has already been hurt would be moronic. No it would be very, very Cerrato like.

Yeah, just like Portis was to miss the Dallas game in 08, come on guys, the games have begun.

That also goes for if he is inconsistent with his play during the season. I am figuring we are going to draft a QB in the next two drafts to be Donovan's understudy, then he will be eased into the job. Don't count on Donovan being her for more than his current contract.

I think tongue in check honesty by MS. As of right now he doesn't know if McNabbulous will start, but two weeks is a long time.
