Morning Wrap - Carlos Rogers Can't Go On PUP, Injury Updates, All You Could Want And More

The Redskins had debated internally whether or not Rogers would need to open the season on the physically-unable-to-perform list, but placing him with that designation is no longer an option. When Rogers, who underwent major reconstructive knee surgery in November, was cleared for full participation in 11-on-11 drills this...

Kelly's Chances of Playing Sunday Slip

Man, where to start ... Well, WR Malcolm Kelly's chances of playing Sunday are not good. He's coming back from a hamstring injury and practiced for a few days, but today was rough. "He really labored," Coach Jim Zorn said after the morning workout. I wouldn't expect to see him...

Cruel Summer: 80-Man Rosters; Shelton Released

We've dabbled in the harsh realities of the new 80-man roster limit, and it is certainly an every-day issue out here. It's become quite clear that the days of being able to nurse injured depth players for a few weeks are ending. If you get hurt now, and you are...

Long Day at the Office for Rock

Rock Cartwright, as many of you know, is a dude I have a soft spot for. He plays with a grit and abandon that is obvious, he's a small guy (I can relate), and, hey, he and my son have essentially the same name, so it's full disclosure on this...

"Sore" Betts to Sit Sunday; Landry, Rogers, the Cap

Jim Zorn said Ladell Betts, who was kicked in the thigh yet again Tuesday, will not play Sunday night (good thing for Ladell all of these cleats have been landing on the periphery of the midsection, eh?). Betts said he is a little sore, but no big deal. Zorn said...

Betts Takes It Easy (Updated)

Jasno reports: Ladell Betts is not participating in this morning's full-pads practice. He's in shorts and is working with athletic trainers. Betts, you'll recall, took a helmet to or was kicked in the thigh last week and, according to Jim Zorn, has taken multiple shots to the thigh. We'll update...

Kelly Practices A Little; Fabini Does Not

Rookie WR Malcolm Kelly took limited work during practice, but came through well. Kelly participated in individual drills and ran some routes, though not quite at full speed. He said the swelling and inflammation in his hamstring is dissipating, and the injury is not really painful at this point, but...

Former Bears DT Signs

The Skins have signed DT Babatunde Oshinowo and waived DT Zarnell Fitch. Oshinowo spent 3 games on Chicago's active roster in 2007 and was taken by Cleveland out of Stanford (this dude has some brains - Academic All-Pac 10) in the sixth round in 2006. Fitch lasted a mere day...

Campbell Is Red Hot, Blades Has Surgery

Jim Zorn was very impressed with how QB Jason Campebll looked today, making decisive throws and showing a willingness to unload the ball to a particular area even if a receiver was not entirely in the clear. "Jason Campbell today was lights out," Zorn said after the morning practice....

Linebacker H.B. Blades, who sprained his left knee in this morning's practice, will undergo arthroscopic surgery this week, according to a Redskins source with knowledge of the situation.

Collins Struggles -- and Other Practice Buzz

I'm chatting on washingtonpost.com, but wanted to take care of you guys here, too. Was kind of a disjointed practice, with a lot of procedural penalties and a stilted pace early, and then a pretty good finish. Todd Collins did not look crisp, and Jim Zorn seemed to be...

Well, the first week o' camp is complete. Coach Z kept it light today, realizing he couldn't go with a two-a-day right after a full-pad scrimmage ("I got a little overzealous in my mind," Zorn said.) Zorn canceled the afternoon session today and expects the players to rest before...

Mike Wise revealed his Redskins Park mancrush the other day, and, surprise, surprise, he chose the dashing and debonair Jason Taylor (Wise can't resist star-smooching sometimes). But me, I'm drawn to the common man, a Joe Six pack type. My Redskins Park mancrush is no longer in the building. My...

Starting DT Anthony Montgomery just said he expects to miss 2-4 weeks with his broken hand and will undergo surgery. The team said yesterday they expected about 10 days. We'll see how quickly he heals. Missing 4 weeks would effectively keep him out of all of camp and put him...
