Shanahan: Donovan McNabb looking good

Speaking on his weekly TV show, Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan indicated that Donovan McNabb (ankle) would be ready for next Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. Shanahan said last week that he wasn't sure about McNabb's status.

McNabbMcNabb"Yeah, I feel very good about him being ready to go," Shanahan said on WRC-TV, according to the Washington Post. "In fact, I think he'll be able to practice in the next couple of days. And I feel very good about the direction he's headed."

Shanahan will meet with reporters Monday and I'm sure he'll be asked about a Post report indicating that it's unlikely Albert Haynesworth will start against the Cowboys. Here's what I wrote about the topic Sunday morning. And here's the latest on the Redskins' practice squad.
