Washington Redskins TE Chris Cooley has played just 29 snaps over his first two weeks back with the team as TE Logan Paulsen has been receiving the majority of playing time.

"Hopefully, for me, it grows throughout the season. But it's a good bunch of guys to be around and a good locker room, and I'm happy to do whatever I can, and if that's just being here and helping with the little details, then I'm happy to do that." Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said that game matchups would determine whether or not Cooley saw a spike in playing time down the road.

Redskins | Chris Cooley has something to prove

Thu, 02 Aug 2012 23:57:41 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Chris Cooley hasn't missed any time to start training camp despite missing 11 games last season with a left knee injury. "I have no concerns. My injuries from last year are feeling much better," Cooley said. He noted he took his time working out during the offseason to slowly progress to where he needed to be. With the emergence of TE Fred Davis in the offense, Cooley needs to show he can still be a threat in the passing game and pile up yards after the catch. He also needs to prove he can stay healthy and on the field.

My only assumption in this - and it's just an opinion - is that he does not like football, by what I've seen over the last three years. If he loved the game of football, he'd show up and love it."

Washington Redskins TE Chris Cooley (knee) said the NFL lockout cost him the rest of the 2011 season as he was unable to receive treatment from team doctors and trainers for a left knee that was feeling stiff from surgery in January.

"I think it was a shame that they didn't let players who had surgery spend time with the doctors and trainers they trust on daily basis, I wish I could have."
