"It's still going to be, for sure, a couple of weeks. It takes some time," Shanahan said, according to The Post. "With a third-degree separation, you don't want to push it too hard. We just kind of have to wait and see. To me, it'll be a minimum of two weeks before he's able to even push it."
Shanahan also announced Wednesday that the team had signed running back James Davis to the practice squad, the team's official website reported. The Redskins had just two running backs -- Torian and Keiland Williams -- available against the Bears because Chad Simpson injured his hamstring during practice leading up to the game.
Simpson was one of nine players -- including quarterback Donovan McNabb -- who didn't practice Wednesday, the Post reported. Sitting out were McNabb (hamstring), Simpson (hamstring), offensive tackle Jammal Brown (hip), cornerback DeAngelo Hall (back), offensive tackle Stephon Heyer (ankle), safety LaRon Landry (Achilles), safety Kareem Moore (knee), linebacker Brian Orakpo (ankle) and fullback Mike Sellers (foot).
