Chris Cooley set to return Thursday

Washington Redskins Pro Bowl tight end Chris Cooley (concussion) participated in some drills Wednesday and should be at full speed Thursday, according to coach Mike Shanahan. Cooley has been one of Donovan McNabb's favorite targets, so that's great news for the Skins as they prepare for Sunday's game in Chicago.

"You never know with those concussions," said Shanahan. "You don't know how long it's going to hang in there. He's feeling much better, so hopefully nothing pops up."

Fred Davis emerged as the Skins' best offensive threat when Cooley was injured last season. For some reason, Davis has not excelled when both players are healthy. I thought the Redskins would have one of the best tight end duos in the league this season, but then, I thought the same thing about Jason Witten and Martellus Bennett heading into the '09 season.
