Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said Monday that Donovan McNabb's lingering injuries played a role in the coach's decision to bench his starting quarterback Sunday. Shanahan told reporters that he met with McNabb Monday morning at Redskins Park. It was a good discussion, he said, but "I don't go through our conversations." As for McNabb's long-term future in Washington, Shanahan indicated that Sunday's game is not indicative of the organization's plans for McNabb. Shanahan and General Manager Bruce Allen have said repeatedly that they'd like to extend McNabb's contract.
