Coles Reaches Redskins Milestone

Laveranues Coles has become just the second wide receiver in Redskins history to record 90 catches in a single season.

With three catches for 37 yards on Sunday, Coles finished the regular season with 90 catches for 950 yards and one touchdown.

Only Redskins great Art Monk has more catches in a single season. Monk recorded a club-record 106 receptions in 1984 and followed that season with 91 catches in 1985, second-best all-time in Redskins history.

With 90 receptions, Coles also broke his personal best of catches in a season. He logged 89 catches in 2002 as a member of the New York Jets.

Coles' achievement this season is all the more remarkable given that he has played most of the season with an ailing right toe.
