Washington Redskins running back Ryan Torain (hand) said he remains day to day but wouldn’t answer a question about if he’s been cleared for contact.
"I’m out there taking handoffs and catching the ball and doing what the coaches are asking me to do," he said. "It’s tough being on the sideline but I’m excited to get out there and play."
Torain all but confirmed what coach Mike Shanahan said last week – he’s out for the Baltimore game on Thursday but hopes to play in the preseason finale against Tampa Bay.
Once back in full practice or a game, Torain said regaining his footing, "won’t take long at all. I’ve been staying in shape."
No back who plays for Mike Shanahan can be completely ignored, but right now Torain's stock is pretty low. Maybe things will change down the line.
