WP: Tupa Forced To Sit Out The Season
The Washington Redskins placed Tom Tupa -- one of the NFL's top punters last season -- on the injured reserve list for the year, reducing the active roster to the maximum 65 by yesterday's deadline. The decision was made because Tupa, 39, missed two straight preseason games with a back ailment, and won't be healthy in time for the regular season opener Sept. 11 against the Chicago Bears.
