Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said rookie tackle Trent Williams will be a game-time decision with knee and toe injuries. Apparently, the knee is coming along better than the toe. "Not a hundred percent pushing off but probably in the 90-95 percentile,' Shanahan said. "That’s why we will wait and see where he is in 48 hours.”

Reports this week have suggested the Redskins are working with using LaRon Landry as a spy on Michael Vick, but defensive coordinator Jim Haslett wasn't providing any information on that, as you'd expect.

“I don’t know where you got that," he told reporters said. "LaRon does so many different things for us. He can do that if he wanted, but you’ve got a lot of other issues. You’ve got the back end, you’ve got receivers, they’ve got a good tight end and they’ve got a good running game. There are a lot if issues you have to deal with with this team.”

Haslett did acknowledge the challenge that Vick presents as a dual threat, especially with rushing Vick when he can be so elusive. 

“In New Orleans the first time we played him, I said, ‘Make sure you contain him.’ And I had guys going half speed looking at him. So, I think there’s a fine line between going to get him and being smart and not. One thing the defensive linemen have to know is that they can never lose him in their eyesight. If they lose him in their eyesight then you’re wrong and you need to get back into eyesight with him. Whether you up the field, you’re spinning or whatever, you’ve got to make sure you have him in your eyesight all the time.”
