Colt Brennan to injured reserve

The good news for Colt Brennan is that he isn’t getting a visit from the Turk on Saturday. The bad news is that he isn’t going to play at all for the Redskins this season.

Redskins editorial director Larry Weisman reports that the quarterback will be placed on injured reserve after an MRI revealed a torn hamstring. Brennan was forced to leave Thursday night’s preseason finale after aggravating the injury, which necessitated the MRI.

“He could be out for a while with his hamstring,” coach Jim Zorn told Weisman. “He’s a guy we need to get rehabbed. For us it’s an opportunity to not keep putting a Band-Aid on it.”

Maybe Jessica Simpson’s visit to that witch wound up cursing the wrong quarterback?

While Brennan’s injury would seem to open the door to a roster spot for rookie Chase Daniel, Weisman reports that they haven’t made a determination about his roster status yet.

UPDATE:  Brennan also suffered a hip labrum tear, according to Chris Mortensen.

    Kudos Florio for giving Josh Alper more latitude to spread his journalistic wings. Josh is good. His writing is fluid and on point, something you may want to take note of. Keep up the good work Josh.

    Sorry Baggins but all the eggs are in Honest Dan Snyder’s basket, along with the season ticket waiting list…

    Maybe the Vikings need for Tavaris to “get hurt” so they can place him on IR and deal with him next year when Brett Fava Bean is no longer around? IE. No need to continue playing with that 2nd ring weighing down the other hand.

    Campbell wanted the chance to prove himself. He’s got it like a mofo now
