Devin Thomas Injures His Hamstring
Devin Thomas, the wide receiver who was the Redskins' first overall pick in the April draft, was taken from the field on a cart after suffering what Coach Jim Zorn said is a pulled hamstring. Zorn, speaking immediately after the morning practice, said the team was not yet certain of the severity of the injury, but that he did not believe Thomas, who is getting treatment now, would be out too long.
"There was nothing I could say," Zorn said of the team's training camp injuries. "Here we go again."
Thomas was hurt running down the right sideline for a deep pass from Jason Campbell and fell to the ground as he went for the catch. A 6-2, 218-pounder from Michigan State, Thomas was a second-round pick.
As they head deeper into camp, this is the time when muscle injuries are common, and the Redskins hope to limit that.
"We've just got to continue to work our way through it," Zorn said.
LaRon Landry, who was not participating in the morning drills, said he had tweaked his lefthamstring. "I should be back in a couple of days," Landry said. "I'll be fine." Shawn Springs took a lot of snaps, as mentioned earlier, at safety as well as cornerback. Rookie Kareem Moore also is ailing. Zorn said Moore has some swelling in his knee - he had surgery this offseason - and continues to rest. The team will soon "rev" him back up, Zorn said, and he will test the knee.
Defensive end Chris Wilson suffered a mild calf strain early in practice, but Zorn does not expect him to be out long. He will miss the afternoon practice.
Todd Collins had another rough practice; he was not sharp, throwing picks and near-picks.
Santana Moss made a great play on a pass from Campbell, really got the crowd going.
