Redskins expected to activate Lachey for tomorrow's game

November 28, 1992|By Vito Stellino | Vito Stellino,Staff Writer

Washington Redskins left tackle Jim Lachey is expected to b activated today and start against the Phoenix Cardinals tomorrow.

Lachey practiced for the third straight day yesterday, and the Redskins think he is ready to play for the first time since he injured his right knee in the fifth game of the season against the Denver Broncos.

The Redskins will not know until game time how they will line up in the offensive line because they don't know if guard Mark Schlereth and tackle Ed Simmons will be able to play. Both have knee injuries.

In any case, the Redskins are almost certain to start their seventh offensive line unit in 12 games.

The Redskins also will activate tight end James Jenkins for the game because Don Warren has a shoulder injury.

They have declared two players, cornerback A. J. Johnson (knee) and defensive tackle Eric Williams (abdomen), out of the game, and safety Danny Copeland is doubtful with a neck injury.

Linebacker Wilber Marshall missed practice with the flu yesterday but is expected to be ready to play tomorrow.
