That also means we got ten days to get Colt Brennan ready for opening day. HAHA

This is really good news for JT, Jon Jansen and our team.

Taylor to Be Out 10 Days to 2 Weeks

Jim Zorn has confirmed that an MRI Sunday showed that Jason Taylor suffered only a sprained knee Saturday night in Charlotte.

Jason Reid reports that Taylor, whose knee was hit in a pileup in the second quarter of the Redskins' 47-3 loss, will be out 10 days to two weeks and, Zorn said, the team will proceed cautiously with him. That means that whether he is ready for the opener isn't certain yet. Zorn would prefer, obviously, to have him for the last 15 games rather than the opener.

That timetable would, though, put Taylor's streak starting 130 regular-season games in jeopary. The injury initially looked serious, with Taylor writhing on the ground and screaming. He limped off the field, however, and was treated briefly on the sideline. Then he was taken to the locker room, where X-rays were negative.

Nothing has change with Jon Jansen, who sprained his foot. He could be out a couple of days, jansen said.

Huge sigh of relief. We dodged a bullet there (or two!), no doubt. Very good news.

The Redskins have something up on their website. Also there is a morning video presser with Coach Zorn on the Redskins website.

Taylor Out 10-14 Days

That's it Jason Taylor is Mr. Fantastic. No doubt about it, only Reed Richards and Jason Taylor could have come out of that pile with no ligament tears. Fantastic news, even if he misses week 1 he will be good to go for week 2 and beyond!

Good call here Matty, props. It definitely looked worse than it was. Great news for the Skins.

Sprained foot, wasn't it? Anyway, he didn't think it was too serious--we'll see.

Come on dude, whats wrong with you? So you want one of our starters hurt?

The guy is coming off a major season ending injury, he's always started slow in the pre-season anyway.

Give the guy a chance he has a low ankle sprain, I certainly hope that Jon can pick it up and have a good season and he is our starting right tackle, we do happen to need him to step up. It's not like anyone stood out on the o-line as stellar last night by any means.

I certainly don't won't to see ANY of our guys getting hurt, that in itself is good news!

Maybe he will prove me wrong, but I feel like he is just completely washed up. Obviously none of the backups has taken his job, but I would rather have a young player develop as a starter. What's the difference anyways when the starter is giving his best impersonation of a matador.
We can only hope that Jon gets back up to speed. Buges would not keep him in there if he weren't the best player available now on the roster, and he is known as a slow starter. Give him a chance, he's coming off major repairs.

We witnessed last year Heyer and Wade filling in those aren't better options than a healthy up to speed Jansen, which I do hope we see this season.
