Injury Report: LaVar, Thrash Should Play

It looks like LaVar Arrington and James Thrash will be ready to play against the Giants, but cornerback Carlos Rogers will probably need more time for his injured arm to heal.

Rookie corner Carlos Rogers (torn biceps) is unlikely to play against the Giants on Saturday. Trainers are still focused on getting motion in his arm.

Safety Matt Bowen (knee) has a better chance of playing, though he'll probably be listed as questionable.

However, receiver James Thrash (groin) and linebacker LaVar Arrington (thigh) are expected to play, according to director of sports medicine Bubba Tyer.

Both Tyer and coach Joe Gibbs were impressed with the walking wounded who did play, especially corners Shawn Springs and Walt Harris.

''We had a number of stories to come out of this one,'' Gibbs said.

The saddest, obviously, involved guard Randy Thomas. He underwent surgery earlier this evening and will spend the next six weeks or so in a cast and then rehab for another six to eight weeks.
