Santana Moss Update
Jason Reid reports that Jason Campbell and the wide receivers were indeed working together today (with only Antawn Randle El missing with an excused absence) at Redskins Park and spoke with Campbell and Moss.
Here's Reid's report:
Because of a groin injury, wide receiver Santana Moss did not participate in workouts during the previous offseason. And then Moss was slowed because of groin and heel problems during the 2007 season. But Moss, who has taken more time off from training than he has in the past, appeared sharp while catching passes from starting quarterback Jason Campbell and backup Todd Collins yesterday, Campbell said, and having Moss on the practice field at this of the year is a good sign for the Redskins.
"Santana took a different approach to the offseason," Campbell said. "He is such a fast athlete, and whenever you run as many routes as he runs, you tend to put more wear and tear on your legs. This year, we told him to take more time off to get his legs back healthy. Last year, he was fighting so many problems. "Today, Santana came out and caught passes with us and he looked smooth. He looked like he was right back in the thick of things again. We just told him not to overdo it. The worst thing would be for him to overdo it right now and it affects him later on in the year. Everybody knows how important Santana is to this team."
Although encouraged about how his legs responded during yesterday's passing session, Moss doesn't want to "look too far down the road," he said. "I don't like to get ahead of myself and think about what's going on way before it's time. That's just the type of guy I am. As players we just have to wait until it's time, and then you just have to go play the games.
