Injuries Are Minor after 2 Tough Practices

Nicks and bruises, calves and hamstrings. But still no serious injuries.

After a pair of physical practices Sunday, the Redskins have several players dealing with minor aches and pains.

Receiver Roydell Williams injured his pinky finger catching a ball in the morning session and wore a splint in the afternoon. He underwent X-rays but results were not available and coaches didn't know the extent of the injury. Also in the morning, tight end Fred Davis bruised his shoulder, but he practiced in the afternoon with an extra pad under his shell.

In the afternoon session, Albert Haynesworth, along with other veterans, had a light practice. Haynesworth's knee was wrapped midway through practice, but Coach Jim Zorn said there's nothing to be worried about. Haynesworth was scheduled to receive a Synvisc injection in his knee, which removes swelling and protects cartilage.

Cornerback Carlos Rogers, who has a strained calf, and fullback Eddie Williams, still nursing sore hamstring, both skipped team drills for the second day in a row.

Defensive lineman J.D. Skolnitsky is nursing a pulled hamstring, and defensive tackle Anthony Montgomery's sore knee was too swollen to allow him to practice.

Receiver Malcolm Kelly had his knee wrapped in ice before leaving the field, but he said it's a precaution he takes every other practice.

Yo Major,

What up w/ Chad Rhinehart? Even Tryon, dubbed a major bust by many last year, seems to be getting more props and press than Rhinehart, who seems to have disappeared into the void in terms of ink.

Sure would be nice to hear about him making the kind of progress Tryon and Thomas seem to be.

9-on-9 Work

Skipping over some of the mundane drills and moving right on to the action.

Spent a lot of time watching the offensive line vs. the defensive line, and it’s reflected here:

* Jason Campbell passed to Marko Mitchell, who found an open zone between two defenders. "Nice catch!" Jim Zorn shouted. "Now turn up-field!"
* Jeremy Bridges pushes Brian Orakpo (lining up at defensive end) behind Campbell, giving Campbell time to throw to Devin Thomas on the opposite sideline. Pass complete.
* Again, Bridges pushes Orakpo behind Campbell, and Campbell throws to Chris Cooley for another nice gain.
* Chris Wilson speeds past Mike Williams and pressures Campbell--it would have been a certain sack. Campbell’s throw to Fred Davis downfield was complete.
* Bad pass by Campbell. He overthrows Dominique Dorsey in the flat.
* Colt Brennan passes downfield to Robbie Agnone, but Kevin Barnes is in position to level a hard tackle.
* Todd Collins throws a short pass across the middle to Rock Cartwright, but he did not see Antwaan Randle El running open down the right sideline.
* Collins connected with Santana Moss for a nice gain.
* Alex Buzbee and Lorenzo Alexander get a strong rush, but Bridges and Devin Clark are up to the task, fending them off and giving Collins enough time to throw to Dorsey downfield.
* Campbell throws a deep pass to Marko Mitchell, who grabs the ball and holds on as he absorbs a hard hit from DeAngelo Hall. Another case of a veteran delivering a good, legal hit to a rookie.
* Mike Williams battles rookie Jeremy Jarmon, as their pads clap together. Williams pushes Jarmon to the left, away from the quarterback and away from the play.
* Rueben Riles pushes a hard-charging Lorenzo Alexander around Brennan, who throws to Robbie Agnone for a nice gain.

-- 4:15 p.m. ET

11-on-11 Work

Moving right on to the 11-on-11 action:

* Renaldo Wynn gets a strong push on Stephon Heyer, who steps backward. Jason Campbell’s pass goes the opposite direction. After the play, Joe Bugel pulls aside Heyer for a brief talk.
* Call it the "Old Reliable": Campbell passes to Chris Cooley downfield, Cooley catches the throw in stride. Chris Horton is there to make a touchdown-saving tackle, with Brian Orakpo also trying to chase Cooley down.
* Santana Moss caught a short pass and then angle up-field. He found blockers in Will Montgomery, Chad Rinehart and Trent Shelton and he weaved his way through for a nice gain.
* Mike Williams handles Rob Jackson, allowing Todd Collins to throw a short pass to Moss.
* Colt Brennan drops a snap, quickly picks it up and, out of sync, quickly throws a pass to Chris Cooley. The pass is behind Cooley, incomplete.
* Brennan hands off to Dominique Dorsey running to the left, but Alex Buzbee and Vaka Manupuna had strong pursuit, stringing out the play for minimal gain.
* Brennan turns around in the pocket and quickly tosses to Moss. Diving to his left, Moss made a sensational grab.
* Chase Daniel finds a well-covered Trent Shelton across the middle of the field for a nice pickup.
* Daniel and Anthony Alridge mishandle a handoff; Daniel quickly scoops up the fumble and races around before the play is called dead.
* Daniel makes a quick pitch to Dorsey, who cuts in front of a block to get up-field. Bugel saw something he didn’t like from Scott Burley, and had a word with the rookie.

Dominique Dorsey

Anthony Alridge

Do either of these guys have a legit shot at making a team with Rock, Portis, Betts already in a tight loop for playing time?

Aldridge has impressive speed--something the redskin offense desperately needs outside of S Moss and D Thomas.

Um, Curzon's been up here for a long time. His wife must have hidden his tequila.

Article today about Randle El having competition for punt returns. He should not even be in the running for the punt return job. Maybe as a 2nd/3rd choice.
