Hall To Miss Sunday's Game, Haynesworth Doubtful

Deangelo Hall will miss this Sunday's game against the Eagles with a knee injury. Carlos Rogers will take his place in the starting lineup opposite Fred Smoot.

Albert Haynesworth is also doubtful and will be a gametime decision with an ankle sprain.

TE Todd Yoder is questionable and, I as far as I can tell, so is LB HB Blades.

Rogers is in a contract year, and hasn't played well enough for any team to give him a big deal. The 'Skins season is all but over, and it would make sense to work in rookie CB Kevin Barnes and second year CB Justin Tryon.

And yet the Redskins remain committed to playing the veterans even when those veterans don't appear to factor into the team's long term plans. I mean I love winning, but I'd rather see the team prepare to win games in the future by giving young guys experience now.

I dig deep into Jim Zorn's reluctance to play young players and how it hurts the organization's future on blogblitz.nfl.com.

Here's the link to my article.
