bubba9497 Posted October 25, 2005 Share Posted October 25, 2005 Redskins Week 8 Notebook http://www.dcexaminer.com/articles/2005/10/24/sports/redskins/002_all_skinsnotes.txt Injury report: Defensive tackle Cornelius Griffin (groin) likely will miss practice time this week, but the Redskins still expect him to play against his former team Sunday. Rookie corner Carlos Rogers, who did not play because of an ankle injury despite being listed as probable on the injury report, is expected to play Sunday. Safety Sean Taylor (sprained ankle) might miss some practice. Reserve defensive tackle Cedric Killings (ankle) is expected to return. Linebacker LaVar Arrington (hamstring) will be OK. Extra toppings: Papa John’s had a busy day Monday. The pizza chain offers one topping for every Redskins touchdown every Monday and they’ll double it if they win. That meant customers could get 14 free toppings on Monday; and, yes, several pizza deliveries were made to Redskin Park. Giant spies: Two players who knew as much about Washington’s offense and defense last season now play for the Giants: linebacker Antonio Pierce and quarterback Tim Hasselbeck. Last season, Pierce used to call defensive signals; Hasselbeck served as an extra coach on the sidelines. And that will lead the Redskins to tweak their signals. “We’ve got to be careful,” Gibbs said. Hall saga: Another week, another round of optimism surrounding kicker John Hall. But a twist has surfaced: Dallas cut its kicker, Jose Cortez, Monday. The Cowboys, even after signing another kicker, could wait to see what the Redskins do with Nick Novak, who was in their camp this summer. The Redskins could be forced to make a decision on Novak this week. He’s 15 of 15 on extra points and five of seven on field goals. — John Keim Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
