Washington Redskins Injuries: Ryan Torain Practices, Hopes To Play Vs. Tampa Bay

The Washington Redskins' running game may receive a big jolt this week before its game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Ryan Torain, who has not seen the field in six weeks, practiced today for the first time without limitations, according to coach Mike Shanahan.

Torain, of course, is notoriously tight-lipped about the status of his injury. However, he did have this to say. Via Mike Jones of TBD:

"I've just got to stay positive, stay working with the team," he said. "I stayed around the team the weeks I was hurt, and just stayed focused and kept my head in the game."    

Torain has not seen the field since a Week 8 loss to the Detroit Lions. He was starting to emerge as a solid running back prior to that injury, having filled in for Clinton Portis. However, injuries have derailed his positive momentum before, both in college and in the pros.

If Torain can play, it will bump James Davis and Keiland Williams down the depth chart, though Williams will likely play in passing situations.
