Redskins Injuries Vs. Cardinals: LaRon Landry & Brian Orakpo Limited

The Arizona Cardinals were able to get their offense going last Sunday on the Carolina Panthers with Kevin Kolb at the helm. The Cardinals offense was one of the most efficient in Week 1 and looked a much improved unit. But they'll need all the help they can get on their trip out East to take on the Washington Redskins, who caused all sorts of problems for the New York Giants last Sunday.

Two crucial Redskins could provide some needed assistance if they're slowed by their various pains and aches. Starting safety LaRon Landry has a hamstring issue, and head coach Mike Shanahan is "hoping he can go" and "he has to show he can play" (not exactly a vote of confidence, but we've seen players recover in time).  Linebacker Brian Orakpo has ankle trouble and they'll judge him "day-by-day". The absence of either of these two starting playmakers could open up opportunities for Kolb in the air, and his familiarity with the Redskins from his NFC East days could come in handy in trying to pick apart his old rivals.

Other than that though, the Redskins have very few issues. WR Brandon Banks (knee), TE Chris Cooley (knee), CB DeAngelo Hall (back), WR Donté Stallworth (shoulder), LS Nick Sundberg (hand) are all practicing in full and should play on Sunday.
