Cornerback Buchanon could return Monday

Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Saturday that the team will evaluate veteran cornerback Phillip Buchanon on Monday and decide whether to add him to the 53-man roster, which would require moving someone else off. Monday is the first day Buchanon is eligible to return to work after serving a four-game suspension for violating NFL policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Team officials have been prohibited from having contact with him since the suspension began Sept.3. "We're going to bring him in," Shanahan said. "When he left here, he was a little banged up, so we're going to see how he is with that shoulder, see what type of condition he's in, and then make a decision what direction we're going to go."
