After a promising 2-0 start to the season, the Washington Redskins enter Week 8 in need of a win in order to avoid falling below .500 for the first time in the 2011 NFL season. The Redskins take to the road this Sunday to play the Buffalo Bills, who are fresh off their bye week and eager to resume their surprising season. They may have to do it without DeAngelo Hall, who missed his second straight practice with a hip injury. Coach Mike Shanahan said he wasn't sure when Hall suffered the injury. Via Redskins PR:
“I’m not really sure if it was from the game, because he felt pretty good on Monday and got a good workout. Tuesday, he felt it flare up. Wednesday, it set him back at practice. So I don’t know if it was a combination of an after effect from the game or if he did something that day.”
Other Redskins to sit out Thursday's practice were Trent Williams (ankle) and Mike Sellers (back), who was taken to the hospital after injuring himself during a lifting session in the weight room. London Fletcher (hamstring), Rex Grossman (pneumonia), Oshiomogho Atogwe (knee), and Phillip Buchanon (neck, knee) were all limited in Thursday's practice, while Reed Doughty, Josh Wilson, Donte' Stallworth were all full go in practice.
