Redskins injury report: Cofield sits
By John Keim
ASHBURN, Va. -- Here's a look at the Washington Redskins' injury list, including two new ones: nose tackle Barry Cofield and cornerback Tracy Porter. The latter was easing back into playing after after having shoulder surgery in the offseason, though he did play against Cleveland. Porter's durability has been an issue throughout his career.
- Cofield (groin) sat out practice Wednesday. Gruden said Cofield could have practiced, but they opted to hold him out.
- Running back Chris Thompson (ankle) was limited, as expected. Gruden said he still “has a ways to go.” Thompson hurt his ankle in the Aug. 7 preseason game vs. New England. He was in a good position to win a roster spot before his injury. Here's a story on Thompson from earlier Wednesday.
- Porter (hamstring) sat out practice and Gruden called him questionable-to-doubtful for Saturday’s game at Baltimore.
- Linebacker Darryl Sharpton (high ankle sprain) remains sidelined and is doubtful for Saturday.
