The Day After; Washington

News and notes on the Washington Redskins.

--The Redskins were monitoring QB Patrick Ramsey's sprained shoulder on Monday. His status for Wednesday's practice will be updated in coming days. Ramsey played through the injury and was unconcerned after the game, but coach Steve Spurrier wasn't so sure.
   --WR Laveranues Coles leads the NFL in receiving yards (286) after a sparkling career day at Atlanta. Coles caught 11 balls for 180 yards despite a pair of hits to the head and neck area that had him walk off the field woozy twice.
   --NT Jermaine Haley was an unexpected inactive with a fractured thumb. The injury was no secret during the week but neither Haley nor team officials gave any indication he wouldn't play. Martin Chase replaced him in the starting lineup.
   --FB Rock Cartwright apparently remains the top option in short-yardage situations. He got three straight carries on the Falcons' 1 in the second quarter, missing twice up the gut and then sprinting around the right edge for a score.
   --S Ifeanyi Ohalete continues to make big plays -- in ways both good and bad. In the first quarter he yielded a 28-yard catch to TE Alge Crumpler to set up Atlanta's first touchdown; in the second, he redeemed himself with a big interception return to the Falcons' 1.
