Redskins receiver Anthony Armstrong has a separated shoulder. As a result, he’s practicing with a yellow jersey that has no number.
So Armstrong got creative, applying a question mark. Upside down.
“I told him to put a yellow jersey on because he’s got an AC second-degree separation,” coach Mike Shanahan said after practice Monday, via quotes distributed by the team. “Anytime you want to go practice and get some drill work, yet if somebody hits it or bumps into it, even your own player or a coach, and that just reminds people that he’s off limits and kind of stay away from him.”
The addition of the punctuation was unprecedented in Shanahan’s experiences.
“I haven’t seen the question mark before,” Shanahan said. “I’ve got to admit that was something new.”
Armstrong would be wise to find a way to shed the yellow jersey. He’s currently listed as a second-string receiver, higher on the depth chart that guys like Josh Morgan and Brandon Banks.
