Samuels Expects to Be Ready For Opener

By Gary Fitzgerald


August 30, 2004

Left tackle Chris Samuels said Monday that he expects his sprained right ankle to be healed by the start of the regular season.

"I'll be ready to go [for the season opener]," he said. "I'm just letting my body heal up. I'm anxious to get out there and play."

Samuels suffered the injury during last Friday's St. Louis Rams game when he was pushed back into a pile up and Rock Cartwright fell onto his ankle.

Samuels, who watched Monday afternoon's practice from the sidelines, has been wearing a protective boot on his foot since the injury. He expects to remove the boot on Tuesday.

His status for Friday's preseason finale will be announced later this week.

"In a couple of days, [team doctors] seem to think he'll be okay," head coach Joe Gibbs said. "He's feeling better, so we'll see what happens."

Linebacker LaVar Arrington and cornerback Walt Harris participated in Monday's practice. Arrington has been nursing a sprained knee and Harris has had a calf injury.

Middle linebacker Mike Barrow continued to rest his knee tendinitis and sat out practice.

I'm really curious about Barrow. I have had lingering patella tendinitis and it never produced enough discomfort where it would keep me from playing basketball or do any other activities.

Is there more to it than the Redskins are letting on, possible cartilage damage? Fiore anyone?
