The Ballcoach talks about everything leading up to the Giants game and much much more, in this two…
. . . Champ Bailey will return punts Sunday and couldn't be happier. The Redskins also are excited about what he can do.
''He can be extraordinary,'' special teams coach Mike Stock said. ''He's already shown he has the gift. He already knows what to do with the ball. He has all kinds of athletic ability. He has good size, instincts and vision. It's a feel and the more you do it, the more confident you are. He just needs a little more repetitions.''
. . . Guard Brenden Stai did not practice and one has to wonder about his future in Washington. It's obvious that Tre Johnson is the immediate future at right guard and Stai has never played left guard.
. . . Redskins safety Sam Shade missed practice because of a bulging disk in his neck. Shade will be re-examined Thursday. Shade won't play Sunday.
. . . Receiver Justin Skaggs isn't guaranteed a spot on the active roster Sunday. If he is, Skaggs will likely cover kickoffs and block on punts.
Skaggs won't return kickoffs, at least not Sunday. And he's never fielded punts.
