Redskins Droll Injury Report
The injury report starts and ends with Fred Smoot. Well, it starts with Clinton Portis discussing Fred Smoot.
"I don't know if Smoot keep lying on the ground, trying to get attention or what," Portis said, "but if we keep [the defense] healthy, if we keep them fresh, that's what they give us."
Smoot, meanwhile, was on the other side of the room explaining how his shoulder had popped out of place.
"It came out but I threw it back in," he was telling Sonny and Sam. "We're good, we're good. I had panic out there. I panicked, I panicked out there, I thought I had broke it, but we're good."
"Wait," I asked him," your shoulder popped out and you threw it back in and now everything's fine?"
"Yeah, it came out, making a tackle, I threw it back in," he told me. "That happens to a lot of us. That's an every-day thing. Don't you get a writer's cramp right there?" he said, pointing to his right hand. "Don't your hand start [hurting] right there? I probably couldn't take that. It came out of place and then they put it back in. I'm good now."
"Wait," I asked him, "who put it back in?"
"[Bleep], I did, I got up and threw the thing back in," he said. "It's nothing. It's not like I threw my knee back in place. I never did that, I don't know a person that did that."
But wait! Portis, on his knee.
"It just twisted it up the first play, but as soon as I jogged off to the sideline it popped back in. You know, it popped, and I'm fine."
Skins sidelines have more poppin' than at Redenbacher family reunion!
Pete Kendall on the large bags of ice affixed to three joins (right knee, right elbow, left knee).
"Everything's fine," he said. "Preventative maintenance."
Al Saunders discussed Antwaan Randle El getting hurt as he came up a yard short of the end zone.
"I'd like to have seen him in the second half, but he pulled a little hamstring there trying to get in," Saunders said. "I was kidding him, I said that's the third time you ended up on the one-yard line. You've got to get a little bit taller so you can squeeze that ball in."
Jason Campbell was also feeling sympathy for ARE.
"I told Randle El he could have had another career day, but he went and got hurt in the first half and couldn't show up to the second half," Campbell said.
Oh, and Saunders on Campbell after he was shaken up in the second quarter, leading to a timeout.
"I guess he got banged up a little bit," Saunders said. "He was probably seeing a couple stars when he came to the boundary. We were concerned about him, that's why there was a timeout procedure there to see how he was, and he was fine."
