man this is good news. while i would hope he'd be ready for the opener, it may be better to have him back for those games we have to play on the road. i know the giants game is on the road, but it is just the opener.

Even if he is out for the opener and a couple weeks beyond that we would make out. We should let him rest until he's 100% because I don't think he will be effective if he's any less.

We should be glad that we have available this season and rest him until he's ready.

I'm sure this will all depend on how we do in the first couple of games...which given our schedule it may not look good (I hope I'm wrong)

Re: Status of Jason Taylor's knee (updated: hyperextended knee)

Why are they not announcing the results of the MRI. I heard that he is fine and this 10-14 days business, but I haven't heard them say what kind of sprain and whether or not there is a tear.

Everything I read so far just says that he is fine and will need 10-14 days to get better. From the looks of the injury he should have at least some damage that would show up on an MRI.

What exactly is it you want them to say?

I like to hear a grade type of sprain or maybe there is a tear in a ligament but it isn't ruptured.

This guy has to have damage that they are not disclosing.

10-14 days indicates if there is any damage it's not significant. It's probably a grade 1 if that makes you happy.

X-rays taken during the game were negative and an MRI exam yesterday did not reveal damage, Zorn said, so Taylor, 33, could return in as quickly as 10 days. Washington is expected to exercise caution with Taylor, who is beginning his 12th season, which could put his streak of 130 straight regular season starts in jeopardy. The Redskins acquired Taylor, who last missed a game in 1999, on the first day of training camp after defensive ends Phillip Daniels and Alex Buzbee suffered season-ending injuries.

Looks like he going to be OK so I'm glad he's not seriously hurt. But so far Taylor has shown me nothing this pre season.

LOL! I think I know what play you're talking about.

I got ripped by a lot of the fans here but I was very very against this trade and I still am. I think all the Hollywood stuff is where his heart is at. Not playing football for an NFC East team that plays in the cold. Just my .2.

Re: Status of Jason Taylor's knee (updated: hyperextended knee)

Two points:

1. Don't be surprised if the Redskins come back with something like, "The injuries not responding, blah, blah, it will be a few more weeks."

2. Based on his play so far, he's not that great of a loss. I still think this is 'Bruce Smith 2'. Or would it be 'Bruce Smith Too', like 'Teen Wolf Too'? He seems like a 3rd down specialist (an unexceptional one) to me. We could have just kept Chris Clemons and had the same thing but younger. Instead he plays for Philly now. Vinny Cerrato really is a gem. One minute you're an unremarkable Gruduate Assistant at Notre Dame and the next minute you're an unremarkable NFL executive. Cue Yakov Smirnoff - "What a Country!"
