Rogers Sidelined By Calf Problem (Updated)

Quick update from @RickMaese via twitter as practice ends:

Carlos Rogers missed practice because of his calf; Coach Jim Zorn said he is not worried about Rogers. Mike Williams and Rueben Riley both needed fluids because of the heat.

Maese also tweets:

Orakpo: "I finally got my first thud with Clinton-it felt good. It's a huge relief when you're a football player, you get to collide instead of hitting guys on the waist like it's tag football." I thought Orakpo looked good today, all things considered.

There will be no afternoon practice, which had been on the docket for special teams. (That was closed to the public anyway.)

Just got home from morning practice - the unquestioned highlight of the morning was Portis decelating Haynesworth out of the backfield. Tell me somebody else saw that??!!! I didn't think I could love 26 anymore than I already did...

Otherwise, Thomas looked sharp, Cooley was Cooley, Kelly seemed to be in 3rd gear which makes me wonder about that knee, JC looked pretty good, Haynesworth needs to wake up, Orakpo is a physical specimen but didn't do much (not surprising given he just signed), and Mike Williams actually looks pretty svelte!!

Dude, could you further explain your view?
What actually happened for you to come to
such conclusion?
Thanks.

thnx LMG,
I've needed a comment like that for what, 24 months?

Here's something I was sent on the relative effectiveness of NFL lines:

http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/ol

According to this breakdown, it looks like the Skins' rushing offense was primarily driven by the blocking rather than the running backs. That's different than, for instance, the Giants or Carolina. The suggestion is that the Skins' backs don't break away for long gains, which has been discussed here.

Some of the numbers take a little work to understand, but it's worth it. Don't know if it's correct, however.

haha, u got it Stumped.

abxinc- made a delayed break out of the backfield and went straight at 92 and put him on his back. It was awesome.

Mayor, I hope you saw this or heard about it and give it its due! Anybody else who was there, hope you got to see that.

Maruqes Hagans and Trent Shelton also impressed at WR, I thought. And it bears repeating - Mike Williams looked downright dainty!

Wow!, I hope that says something about CP, and not about AH using wrong approach.

Did CP26 blindside him? Was there anything cheap about it? Was 92 half-arsing it and CP just clobbered him for it? I hope that wakes AH92 up.

There's nothing to "wonder" about Kelly's knee. It's being held together with duct tape, and the first time someone puts half a shoulder pad on it at full speed he's gonna be done for the season. But at least folks are saying that DT11 looks sharp.

Don't we already have a physical specimen DE who doesn't do much? Makes me appreciate the Demetric Evanses of the league who are not physical specimens, but actually do stuff.

If Mike Williams were auditioning for Slim-Fast I'd be feeling great about him; but since we need him to play OT, I'm getting a little concerned that the only good things we are hearing about him is that he's no longer obese. I mean, can he play??

Starting cornerback with a calf issue...OK, I had to glance at my calendar and check the year again real quick...

LMG

What are your views on Keith Eloi, and
Marko Mitchell. Thanks for reporting on Hagans, Shelton and most especially MW,
he could be a success story waiting to happen.

"... Mike Williams looked downright dainty!.."


Great.

Now: can he block?

Are you kidding me!? Did you not see him completley own Chris Samuels during the team time? He shook him so bad Samuels fell trying to catch him.

You heard it here first, folks. The poster is not one for waffling on his predictions.

But knee injuries like this might be more vulnerable to a good twist than contact.

abx, Mitchell didn't look too good to me but Eloi made a couple nice catches.

duncan, I didn't see Orakpo own Samuels but glad to hear it.

And to clarify on the 26/92 hit - yea I think ALbert was dogging it and that was CP's not so subtle reminder that we don't dog it at Redskins Park.

p1funk, that's just a tad premature on Kelly's knee. THere are people far more qualified than us who have cleared him to play. It may turn out to be chronic/degenerative but give the kid at least a second season before you write him off. Sheesh.

"Did you not see him (Brian Orakpo) completley own Chris Samuels during the team time?"

Yet another report of offensive linemen not pass blocking well.

Hopefully, the line 'gels' before the Meadowlands showdown.

Based on his medical history coming out of college and his Year 1 in the NFL, the burden is on him to prove me wrong.

Should we be happy about this? We've known all along Portis could put people on their backs. What I didn't know was the 330 pound $100 million all world tackle the 'skins just got could be put on HIS back by any 220 pound back.

The Redskins will finish with a 4-12 record.

Too bad, Danny Snyder.

Maryland football will finish with a 2-10 record.

Maryland basketball will finish with a 15-16 record

No NCAA bid

No NIT bid

Carolina Blue - Carolina WHITE - Go Tar Heels - Let's go Tar Heels !

OK, I give up! What in the H does "decelating" mean? I even checked the dictionary. It's not in it! So, what happens when Portis "decelates" somebody out of the backfield?
