Redskins Insider: CP Update (and other injuries, too)

Redskins Insider

Portis will be working on his conditioning and strengthening the area around his swollen right knee for the time being. Would be very surprising if he were to practice anytime before next Monday and Bubba Tyer, director of sports medicine, laughed when someone suggested Clinton might participate in the scrimmage Saturday in Baltimore.


No way they're going to risk anything there.


So it's a setback, but, the Redskins say, a minor setback and something not uncommon for a football player trying to get back into full playing shape after a lengthy absence due to tendinitis. Once Portis started cutting and turning and exposing the knee to contact, the knee was aggravated and discomfort set in.


There is no set timetable for a return, Bubba said, but he expects it to be a matter of "days" for Clinton to get back, and not "weeks."


Also, WR Santana Moss is being watched ever so closely (I blogged about this a while back when they signed Corey Bradford). There is some concern about lingering groin/hip problems and his workload is being curtailed a bit. Bubba said that Santana has been experiencing discomfort in his groin, based on him compensating. Moss missed much of the offseason with the groin/hip problem. "He feels like he's compensating a little bit on his leg, so he's got a soreness in his groin instead of the hip flexor/abdominal area (which he hurt this offseason. I asked specifically if Santana had been compensating for discomfort in his hamstring - a problem with him going back several years - and Bubba said that Santana was compensating for "his leg in general, the other part, the hip flexor." Could be a case where they rest him in the scrimmage as well.


Obviously, we'll keep this on our radar.


And by "we" I mean, me, 'cause ... You picked a fine time to leave me, Howard/ Four injured starters, a mess in the backfield. Just me and an intern/while you take a star-turn. But that ESPN money's for real. (Shout out to The Gambler there, and seriously, Howard, you will be missed. Loved working with you. His last day was yesterday. Now I'm writing for two).
Okay, back to the injury stuff:


Marcus Washington watched the morning practice, but will be full go for the session tonight at 7, Bubba said.


Randy Thomas is still taking limited work but making good progress. Again, don't expect to see him in B-more. Mike Espy took a pretty good knock on his left knee and is still a few days away, Bubba said, so I'd scratch him from B-more, too. Obviously, Samuels is out (rookie Stephon Heyer was still with the first team O Line this morning; Wade still toggling between the first and second team with Whitticker and Fabini getting some first-team reps at guard as well).


Rookie LB Dallas Sartz was back out there this morning, but rookie TE Tyler Ecker remains out with a groin strain and the length of that injury is doing the 7th-round pick no favors. Fullback Pete Schmitt, who was opening some eyes in the first week of camp, remains out with a left shoulder injury. WR Carl Berman has a hamstring strain. Baby Rocco, by the way, is day-to-day with a mean case of drooling (think he's starting to teethe), Lauren is on the 60-day DL with sleep depravation and Chloe Jane is happily oblivious to it all, quickly memorizing the entire "Sound of Music" catalog.(I grew up with one younger brother so I missed all of this stuff the first time around).


So, overall the Skins went really light this morning. Practice barely lasted an hour. Now, in the past, even when the Skins were running less physical camps (and trust me thus far it's been nothing close to August with Marty out here) the 7 pm practices in full pads were generally the truth, when heads were crackin. I figure that could be the case tonight, especially when they didn't even go 90 minutes this morning.


Also, word is that your bloggy favorite - Sean Taylor "The Grim Reaper, Meast, Manimal, Swoop, The Punter Debunker" (okay I made that last one up on the fly) is going to speak to us media schlubs at 1:15, but that's not written in stone. Sean hasn't done a public group session in a long, long time and has done maybe 5 full press briefings since he came in the league in 2004, so it should be interesting. Will pass along the highlights on the blog if this thing actually goes down.


Alright, going to grab some lunch now. Keep cool out there in the sun and stay classy, Redskins Nation.
Cheers.

Re: Redskins Insider: CP Update (and other injuries, too)

Just saw NFL Live on ESPN, and they said that Samuels is more likely to be out of season due to torn ACL??!!

I think they have their information wrong! God, let's sure hope that is the case!

I watched NFL live and they said that Samuels will most likely be out all of the PRESEASON. They said it could of been much worse.

I have looked all over the internet and can not find anything that states he will be out the year. I think that would be a big deal if it were true.

You might want to get your ears checked, they said the preseason not the season.
