Redskins Will Continue to Manage Samuels's Knee

Late Saturday night, offensive tackle Chris Samuels sat on a table in the training area just off the Redskins' locker room, having his right knee examined. Samuels played his full allotment of plays in the 17-13 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers -- about 20 snaps -- and stood on the sideline as the clock ticked down, joking with the other linemen on the starting unit.

Samuels's right knee, though, is likely to be an issue all season, Coach Jim Zorn said. It bothered the 10-year veteran regularly last year, and he underwent minor surgery this offseason.

"He did great," Zorn said Sunday. "His knee was sore coming into the game. There was some questions as far as whether he felt like he could go, and he and our trainers worked together to put it all together and he had a good 20 plays."

Zorn acknowledged, though, that the athletic training staff, as well as the coaches, will have to monitor Samuels regularly if he is to make it through the season healthy.

"I think the training camp takes its toll," Zorn said. "And then once we get into the season, where you're playing on it once a week and the practices are not as physical -- they're more technical -- I think that will really help him."

Samuels, who turns 32 Friday, has been named to the Pro Bowl six times, including after each of the last four seasons. But he missed the final three games of last year after tearing his triceps. He is considered the anchor of the line at left tackle.

so who is to blame for Samuel's knee problem?

I know, Snyderato is to blame. If they hadn't mismanaged their yabadabadoo, Samuels's knee would be in better shape. Also (a la Palin) it is JC's fault since he holds on to the ball too long and strains Samuel's knee, also.

"Make Colt the #1 QB and Samuel's knee will get better" said Redskins Fan base

Guys, I think Redskins need to change their primary yabadabadoo to be more like the Patriots' yabadabadoo.

Yabadabadoo at Fedex field sucks, and it cost too much. Snyder's fault blah blah blah
