Cardinals Vs. Redskins: Chris Cooley Held Without A Catch For First Time In 98 Games

Chris Cooley joined the Washington Redskins as a rookie in 2004. In Week 9 of that season he was held without a catch. In the seven years since Cooley had caught at least one pass in every single game that he played in; until Sunday. Cooley caught zero passes against the Cardinals, which breaks a pretty impressive streak, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post.

Tight end Chris Cooley was held without a catch for the first time since Week 9 of his rookie season. Cooley, who has played in 98 games since then, was targeted on only two plays Sunday against Arizona.

This might be the official changing of the guard at tight end for the Redskins. Fred Davis has looked very impressive in the first two games of the year, and there might not be room for both of them as featured targets for the Redskins. The Patriots make it work with two tight ends, but Rex Grossman isn't Tom Brady. It appears that the emergence of Fred Davis has backed Chris Cooley into a corner a little bit.
