Ex-Butler star might sit out

  • Follow NFL

The Washington Redskins could be without half of their starting defensive backfield when they face Randy Moss and the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Former Butler High star Carlos Rogers said Thursday his right hamstring is still sore after hurting it on Monday, while safety LaRon Landry is fighting a sore Achilles' tendon that has limited him in practice for several weeks.

Rogers knows if he plays, the Titans will go after him.

"If they hear reports about me being on the injured list about my hamstring, and if I go out there, they're going to test it," he said.

SAINTS: Running back Pierre Thomas says he could return to the field "sooner than people think."

Thomas is suiting up for practice again this week after spending most of the past seven weeks in the training room because of a severe left ankle sprain.

PANTHERS: Brian St. Pierre has thrown five passes in eight NFL seasons. He wasn't in a training camp this summer and as recent as last week was a stay-at-home dad.

On Sunday, he'll start for Carolina.

Coach John Fox picked the 30-year-old St. Pierre over rookie Tony Pike .

TEXANS: QB Matt Schaub is back with his team after he was hospitalized with an injury to the bursa sac in his right knee.

SEAHAWKS: Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is ready to play against the defending champion New Orleans Saints despite two cracked bones in his left wrist.

COLTS: Receiver Austin Collie doesn't want to talk about the violent hit that left him with a concussion.

"I understand everyone's concern, but I prefer not to discuss the specifics of the play in Philadelphia. I hope that can be respected," he said. "It was a football play. And that's part of football. Now I want to focus my efforts on continuing the gradual process of getting back on the field and helping our team."
