Mike Sellers hopes to play Friday against Jets

Fullback Mike Sellers says he hopes to play in Friday's game against the New York Jets.

Asked Tuesday how his knee feels, Sellers said, "I feel it." Sellers injured his left knee in the first half of last Saturday's game against Baltimore. He sat out practice Monday.

"It's better than it was yesterday," Sellers said Tuesday before practice. "I'm a fast healer, so I don't foresee me being out of working capacity for long. But it's up to coach and the trainer."

Coaches will evaluate Sellers each day this week. They've brought in reinforcements in case Sellers isn't ready to play Friday. The team picked up former Pittsburgh fullback Carey Davis. With rookie Dennis Morris lined up at tight end, Darrel Young is the only other fullback on the roster.

But Sellers says he'll do his best to be ready for Friday.

"I anticipate being in every game," he said. "I don't ever predict myself to be out of anything like that. ... I plan on doing everything I can to be on the field, so we'll see."

Sounds like a guy worried about being upstaged by the younger player...

LeGarret Blount would have been a very nice 7th round pick for the Skins.

Totally would have been worth it just to see if he would punch Haynesworthless in the face.
