The Redskins appear to be in pretty good health going into Sunday’s key game against the Cowboys.

Mike Shanahan addressed the injury situation on Wednesday for the first time since the Redskins’ win over the Raiders on Sept. 29. It looks like the bye week gave some players some time to rest some bumps, bruises, and strains.

Running back Alfred Morris (bruised ribs) left the Raiders game early. “Had a full practice so that's a good sign,” said Shanahan. “There was no setback, no limit on his carries in practice so he should be ready to go.”   

Kicker Kai Forbath has not kicked in a game since the season opener on September 9. “He looked good today, he kicked today,” said Shanahan. “Hopefully there is no setback but today he looked good and I anticipate him being ready for the game.”

Tight end Jordan Reed (bruised thigh), who was inactive against the Raiders, practiced in full. Fellow TE Logan Paulsen, who sprained a knee near the end of the game in Oakland, was limited.

The only player who was held out of practice was backup nose tackle Chris Neild. He suffered a strained calf against the Raiders.
