'Concern' over Goldson's status against Eagles

The latest update from Redskins Park included another injury concern with the defensive backfield.

It wouldn't be a week without a defensive starter iffy for the upcoming game,  particulary in the secondary. This week, that unwanted status falls on safety Dashon Goldson, who suffered a rib injury in Sunday's win over the Bills.

Washington plays at the Philadelpha Eagles Saturday night. With a victory, the Redskins clinch the NFC East title.

"There is a level of concern there," coach Jay Gruden said at his Wednesday press conference of Goldson, who is the Week 1 defensive back starter to have played in every game this season.

Defensive end Jason Hatcher and wide receiver DeSean Jackson were also kept out of practice Wednesday. Offensive tackle Morgan Moses (ankle) and center Josh LeRibeus were limited participants along with Ryan Kerrigan and Ryan Grant.

Jackson remains less than 100 percent after getting beat up in the Week 14 win at Chicago. He still hammered Buffalo with a 77-yard catch-and-run touchdown.

For now Gruden hopes rest will help Jackson, Goldson an his two startig offensive linemen.

On the lighter side, Gruden was asked where he's improved most during his second season as head coach. "These interviews...I'm killing them."
