Samuels Update (if you can call it that)
Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels had to be carted off the field late in this afternoon's practice with what the team hopes is a mild MCL sprain. Samuels tangled amid a gaggle of bodies and was on the ground for several minutes before being helped to the sidelines.
Samuels appeared to be getting treatment on his left knee, but the team has not yet verified the knee that was hurt. Samuels spoke to teammates and team officials while being carted off, several of whom said that the veteran did not believe the injury was a major tear. Samuels went directly to the training room and the Redskins may not know the extent of the injury until late tonight or tomorrow.
Receiver Mike Espy missed the second practice with a bruised left knee and fullback Pete Schmitt left practice early with a left shoulder injury and did not return. More information on their status should be available later tonight. Rookie linebacker Dallas Sartz (hamstring) missed both practices today. Tight end Tyler Ecker (groin) missed both sessions. Star linebacker Marcus Washington, who is coming off hip surgery, was rested for the second session today.
