Zorn says “we’ll be talking” about signing a RB. Said the Redskins spoke about LJ. “I dont know” if we’ll have interest […] Zorn on Larry Johnson: “I need to have a longer conversation than Ive had to make a decision”
Of course this makes plenty of sense because Portis will be out for Sunday’s game, leaving the Redskins with a complete lack of rapidly declining running backs on the depth chart. Think of it as Shaun Alexander 2.0, but this time with more sass and a side of gay-bashing. Plus, Shaun Alexander 1.0 worked out so well, so it’s totally a no-brainer.
Also: Levi Jones is the team’s starting left tackle on Sunday with Heyer moving to right tackle, and Chris Horton may go on IR with a toe injury. Given what proceeded that sentence, both of those bits of information don’t look so awful anymore.
UPDATE: Ryan O’ Halloran tweets that a source informs him the Skins are not interested in signing Johnson. Still waiting on a source to tell us that Levi Jones isn’t actually our starting left tackle and that this was all just a horrible nightmare.
