Shanahan rules out Redskins' Landry; Cooley questionable

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins safety LaRon Landry has been ruled out of Sunday's season opener against the New York Giants because of a hamstring injury.

Mike Shanahan said Friday that Landry did not practice and will not face the Giants, confirming what Landry said earlier in the week.

Landry pulled his right hamstring on Aug. 19 and aggravated the injury last weekend. Fifth-year veteran Reed Doughty will start in Landry's place.

Shanahan also says tight end Chris Cooley is questionable. Cooley missed all of preseason with a sore, swollen knee.

Also questionable for the Redskins is safety Oshiomogho Atogwe (hamstring), wide receiver Donte Stallworth (shoulder) and running back Ryan Torain (hand).
