Washington Redskins Injuries: LaRon Landry Says He'll Return This Season

LaRon Landry has not played for the Washington Redskins since a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10. However, he told reporters today that he does expect to return this season, even though the Redskins have virtually no chance at the playoffs.

Via John Keim of the Washington Examiner:

Landry, who has missed the past three games with an Achilles injury, called himself day to day. But when asked if there was a chance he won't return this season he said, "Never."

"I want to finish what I started," he said. "I want to be with my team and battle with those guys."

Landry has been out of action with an achilles injury, and did not participate in practice on Wednesday. However, coach Mike Shanahan has said the plan is for Landry to practice at some point this week. 

Landry is also the leading vote-getter among safeties for the Pro Bowl, but he wants to make it very clear that he is not coming back for that reason. 

"Not at all," he said. "Just sitting out is killing me enough. My play would speak for itself. If I get to the Pro Bowl, of course it's a goal. But if I get there I get there. Most importantly I want to be with my team.

Pro Bowl or not, the Redskins could certainly use him.
