Redskins coach Mike Shanahan insisted Sunday that Chris Cooley has encountered no setbacks with his troublesome left knee.
It's perhaps a good sign for a player who needed the knee drained 15 times before going on I.R. last October, but there are no guarantees. Cooley is still owed a $3.8 million base salary and holds a salary cap number of $6.23 million. He'll almost certainly have to restructure in order to make the Redskins.
