Joe Gibbs, Santana Moss and Clinton Portis React To The News of Suspects In The Case
Coach Joe Gibbs reacted briefly coming off the field to news that three men have been detained in Florida in connection to Sean's murder:
"That's good, that's real good," Gibbs said. "i think that makes everybody around here extremely happy. We're thankful for that, and we apprciate all the hard work everybody put into that."
WR Santana Moss said: "The only thing I can think of, if those are the guys, I hope they'll just be dealt with properly. There's nothing much I can say about it. There's no anger I can express to them. What's done is done. But if they the guys, whatever they have planned for them, it's gonna be right."
Clinton Portis said: "Hopefully, these are the guys and we'll have something to cheer about and be excited about."
Portis is hoping for some sort of answers about the crime. "Everybody wants to know why," Portis said. "But it's still not going to bring back Sean ... I'm sure everybody is just looking for a reason why Sean? Why him?"
Also, some in the media continue to report that Sean was in Florida to get his knee evaluated. As I have reported throughout this ordeal, the Redskins have no knowledge of that. Sean's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has told some of his clients that Sean was there to see Dr. Uribe. I asked Joe specifically today if Rosenhaus has ever conveyed that message to the Redskins, or if they had any new knowledge of a specific reason Sean was in Miami, and he said no.
There have been communications between Rosenhaus and the team, but no one here knows anything about a doctors appointment. There would be no issues at all if Sean was getting his injured knee looked at while down in South Florida, and Dr. Uribe has consulted on several Redskins players in the past. Privately, though, considering how late Sean got down there Saturday - and that he planned to come back to Redskins Park on Monday for the start of work - people in the organization don't see how it would really have been possible for him to get a check-up anyway on a Sunday.
I have called Rosenhaus every day this week trying to get some confirmation on any knee appointments, but have not heard back from him (I know he has been incredibly busy this week and last I heard he was flying back to Florida from the Dallas game last night). When I do hear something from him I will let you know.
