With four days remaining before the Redskins host Andrew Luck and the Colts at FedEx Field, the Redskins overall health appears to be improving. Heres the Tuesday rundown of the teams injury list, according to Coach Mike Shanahan.
--WR Anthony Armstrong (sprained shoulder) only played only one down Saturday, but is expected to suit up Saturday vs. the Colts. We took the no-contact yellow jersey off of him today, Shanahan said.
Armstrong is battling Aldrick Robinson, Brandon Banks and Dezmon Briscoe for one of the final two wide receiver spots.
--RB Tim Hightower (grandfathers funeral), RB Roy Helu Jr. (Achilles tendons), SS Brandon Meriweather (knee), CB Morgan Trent (knee, shoulder), WR Lance Lewis (groin) did not practice.
--Helu said both of his sore Achilles tendons are feeling better, but its too soon to make a decision about Saturdays game. On Tuesday, Helu was limited to warmups. It started out with being tight, then after playing through it, it strained a little bit, Helu said.
--Fullback Darrel Young (hamstring) practiced today but is not expected to play Saturday, Shanahan said. Its not completely healed, but its getting better, the coach said.
Young did not suit up in the first two preseason games, but might play a series or two in the fourth game if hes ready, Shanahan said.
--Right guard Chris Chester (ankle) should make his preseason debut against the Colts. I expect him to be able to go full speed, Shanahan said.
