Redskins Preseason: Donovan McNabb Will Not Play Against Jets Friday

It turns out that Donovan McNabb's banged-up ankle will linger on for at least a week, as coach Mike Shanahan just announced that McNabb will not play in the team's preseason game against the Jets Friday. 

Via Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan:

Shanahan on McNabb: ''Nothing you can do about it. I don't think he could go if it was a regular season game.'' #Redskins

Rex Grossman will get the start instead. 

Shanahan has also ruled fullback Mike Sellers (leg) and wide receiver Malcolm Kelly (hamstring) out for Friday's game. Regarding Kelly, Shanahan added that people shouldn't "count him out" of making the final roster. That just goes to show you how far the former second-round pick has fallen.
