Redskins tight end Chris Cooley’s left knee has not experienced any recent swelling, and he hopes to begin on-field work next week and be ready to play in the Sept. 11 season opener against the New York Giants.
“This is the best that my knee has felt since last year before I started having soreness,” he said in the Redskins locker room Monday morning. “I can’t imagine not playing against the Giants. … I’m not thinking [about returning] Week 2, Week 3, Week 4. My mindset is completely on Week 1.”
It's not a terrible idea for owners in PPR leagues with large rosters to draft both Washington TEs because at this point, they can both be had rather cheaply. If Cooley can go, he's starter-quality, and if he can't Davis would be ready to step in.
