In other (non-Haynesworth) news...

Need a break from Albert Haynesworth? Here are a few other tidbits from today's rain-shortened practice:

-- The Redskins cut kicker Justin Medlock on Monday, leaving Graham Gano as the only kicker on the roster. Coach Mike Shanahan said he has entered training camp with one kicker before, although he long had the luxury of knowing that kicker would be veteran Jason Elam. Gano has
only four career games -- and four career field goals -- on his resume.

"We're going to give him an opportunity to see what he can do, and hopefully we made the right decision," Shanahan said. "We'll see that in the preseason. I thought going 4 for 4 last year, [he] started out pretty good. [He] had an extra point blocked. But after our evaluation of
what we've seen over the last month and a half, we thought we'd give him as many reps as possible and see how he does."

-- There remains no update on free agent running back Brian Westbrook, who continues to explore his options. Shanahan expects the question of whether Westbrook will play in Washington to be resolved by the opening of training camp next month.

-- Safety LaRon Landry's toe remains "sore", Shanahan said. Landry will not practice Thursday, but Shanahan is hoping Landry will be healthy for training camp if there are no setbacks.

-- Shanahan considers wide receivers Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas "old veterans" -- his response when asked about the third-year players being "youngsters" -- and said they're adjusting to the Redskins system.

Boy do I agree with this attitude.

The shelf life of an NFL player is, what,3-4 years.

Meaning that by now, Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly should 'get it.'

This is their 'put up' or 'shut up' year.
