really hard for the wizards. we'll get to them in a minute. the redskins are going to have to get the job done without an important player. jordan reed will not play this sunday against the cardinals. this will be the third game this season the redskins touchdown target will miss. now, take a look at reed during practice this week. he looks perfectly fine, raising his right arm to catch the football. the problem is his left shoulder. see it? he can't raise that one. the stays on this left side. he needs a week off because of redskins plan without jordan reed. >> get another good weekend of treatment. got to keep him back here, get a good weekend of treatment, and hopefully get him back for next week. we're going to keep the standard concepts, the plays we have that we like, but we expect vernon or derrick to be able to do them. we might have less of a certain package. maybe the three tight end sets or something like that, but we'll still carry about everything that we have, just

team, 7-1 on the season. problem is, their first loss came on tuesday night. shooting was a major issue against pitt. 34% from the floor won't lead to many victories, and mark turgeon has a bigger issue with his team, the amount of three-pointers they took, a total of 36. double the amount as the winner panthers. >> we talked to our team about getting good shots. and we probably shot a few more than we needed to the other night because we were 20 count for six points instead of three points, but they don't. so the key is that we're getting good shaudz. we're getting a lot of open looks. that's what matters. we're missing some around the rim, too. so you keep talking about execution, keep talking about taking good shots. but we have to offensive rebound better. if we're going to miss 58% of our shots, we better rebound, you know, 30% of those to 35% of those. >> all right, so game night for
