Will McIntosh is a nominee for this year's Nebula in the short story category.
This season, despite missing the Colts 'game, McIntosh is third on the team with 66 tackles, according to the team's numbers, 29 of them unassisted.
He works closely with everyone from the Capitals 'Bruce Boudreau to the Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman, and says McIntosh is among the most intelligent athletes he's met.
McIntosh is tied with inside Linebacker London Fletcher and cornerback DeAngelo Hall for sixth in the league with 46 tackles, according to the NFL's game statistics information system.
McIntosh is notoriously media-shy and had to be encouraged Wednesday by the team's public-relations staff to meet with reporters.
H.B. Blades started in McIntosh's place against the Colts and finished with two total tackles.
Linebacker Rocky McIntosh is expected to return to the starting lineup this Sunday when the Redskins play the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.
If McIntosh is unable to play, the Redskins could turn to H.B. Blades, activate rookie Perry Riley, or perhaps most likely, rely on a third safety in a dime package, a formation the Redskins used heavily against the Packers.
Veteran Damion McIntosh is the projected left tackle starter, but an upgrade such as Boise State's Ryan Clady or Virginia's Branden Albert must be considered to jump start last year's 31st-ranked scoring offense that averaged just 14.1 points.
Rocky McIntosh is coming off a knee injury but is arguably this unit's best athlete when he's 100%.
