Evening AFC West news and notes
By Bill Williamson
Here’s more chatter connecting Mike Shanahan to the Washington Redskins. This talk has been going on for months.
- The San Diego Chargers will observe a moment of silence in remembrance of Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry with players from both teams on the field Sunday prior to the critical game. Henry, 26, died Thursday after suffering major head injuries in an auto accident Wednesday in Charlotte, North Carolina.
- Oakland tight Zach Miller did not practice Thursday for the second straight day because of a concussion. There is a strong chance he won’t play Sunday at Denver. Receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey also didn’t practice Thursday with a foot injury. He likely won’t play Sunday, either.
- Denver linebacker Elvis Dumervil (toe) and running back Knowshon Moreno (ankle) both practiced fully Thursday. Dumervil didn’t practice Wednesday and Moreno was limited. Denver running back Correll Buckhalter didn’t practice because of an ankle injury. He likely won’t play Sunday.
- San Diego linebacker Shawne Merriman didn’t practice Thursday for the second day in a row with a foot injury. He will probably play Sunday. San Diego safety Eric Weddle practiced fully for the second straight day after missing the past two games with a knee injury.
- Kansas City defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey was limited for the second straight day with a knee injury.
