  Redskins | LaRon Landry may not be ready for Week 1    Sun Sep 4, 04:01 AM

The Washington Redskins are expected to open the season with S Reed Doughty starting at strong safety and S Oshiomogho Atogwe at free safety. S LaRon Landry (Achilles', hamstring) is the team's top strong safety, but he is still working his way back from hamstring and Achilles' tendon injuries and his status for Week 1 is in doubt.

Footballguys view: This is not a shock as the team signed Doughty almost exactly when it became public that Landry wasn't all the way healed from his achilles injury. Landry was the #1 IDP DB when the news broke, now he's closer to #10.
