Davis hurt, Choice a 'Skin: News and Notes

More bad news on the Redskins front. The leading receiver on the team TE, Fred Davis has a ankle sprain and was in a walking boot after the game. According to Mike Shanahan, it's a grade one ankle sprain and Shanahan hopes that he'll be able to practice Wednesday. That's "hopes"......at this point, I'm starting to think the Redskins will be pulling athletic fans out of the stands to catch passes for the team during games.

Meanwhile, with hopes to spark an anemic run game, the 'Skins picked up former Cowboy RB Tashard Choice off waivers yesterday. In order to make room, the Redskins have released CB, Brandyn Thompson. Expect Thompson to be re-signed to the practice squad later this week if/once he clears waivers. I get two things from this move. First, is that RB Evan Royster isn't ready to be on the active roster. Second, the Redskins want to use Roy Helu as a change of pace back moreso than the 'Skins 3rd down back. I expect Choice to be the main 3rd down back and that the Skins will pick his brain a bit about the Cowboy's offensive schemes/tendencies.
