Two key defensive players for the Washington Redskins were limited in practice on Wednesday before Week 2's game against the Arizona Cardinals, according to coach Mike Shanahan. For one player, LaRon Landry, that is an improvement over his status last week. For Brian Orakpo, it is a downgrade.
Landry missed the team's Week 1 game against the New York Giants with a hamstring injury. He admitted he did practice a bit and that it's "feeling better." His status for Sunday is still unclear. Orakpo, meanwhile, played through an ankle injury on Sunday against the Giants. His status is also unclear for Sunday.
On the bright side, Chris Cooley and Brandon Banks both practiced on Wednesday fully and will have no issues playing on Sunday as of now. Both played last Sunday as well, but were on the injury report leading into the game.
