Daniels will be evaluated by a hand specialist Tuesday, when his fate will be determined. He dislocated his left wrist and had it put back into place last night. The Redskins aren't sure if he'll be able to play again, but until he's officially done, they won't count him out. Daniels spoke Sunday night like a man who knew his season had ended.
''I've never had a year like this year. It's been strange and I guess it's just one of those years,'' he said. ''A lot of things happened and I just have to keep my head up, be a leader and be a coach and come back stronger next year.''
As for Arrington, he'll practice Wednesday for the first time since undergoing knee surgery after Week 2. At that time he was supposed to be out for 2-4 weeks, but a bone bruise discovered through an MRI caused doctors to shut him down. They feared the knee could worsen if he did any physical activity.
But the bruise has dissipated enough that they want him to try and practice. The Redskins hope he can practice for the rest of the week. They want to see how his knee responds. There's a chance that they'll end up putting him on injured reserve if it doesn't respond well.
Also, receiver Laveranues Coles received a cortisone shot today. He'll miss a couple days of practice, but will play against the Eagles.
Meanwhile, tight end Robert Royal sprained his knee and might not practice Wednesday. Right guard Randy Thomas made it through the game OK with his tender hamstring. End Demetric Evans isn't sure if he'll be able to play Sunday, but defensive tackle Jermaine Haley should be ready to go this week.
Two players, receiver James Thrash (hamstring) and corner Walt Harris (hamstring) both were worked out before the game Sunday. Both insisted on playing.
The Redskins have had numerous players play hurt this season.
''More so than in recent years,'' trainer Bubba Tyer said. ''That's a testament to Coach.''
