August 17-- 2 more signed, Daniels Hurts back

DE Phillip Daniels saw a back specialist today, he is going to rest for 1-2 weeks after a back strain.. He was not at practice and will not be playing in the game against the NYJ this weekend..

CB Shawn Springs is back home after undergoing the surgery to repair an abdominal muscle yesterday.. he will be back at Redskins park tomorrow.. Springs's timeline to return is more liekly in the 4-6 week range according to team tariners putting the opener very much in doubt... Initially, Springs asked trainers for some anti-inflammatory medicine to deal with the soreness in his groin, instead the team decided to check it out and ultimately came to the decision to have the surgery done now.,.

Clinton Portis "has a shot to get back by the opener." that's according to Bubba Tyer as the back continues to rehab his shoulder.. The team believes he should be able to increase his workload in about a week, for now the plan is to continue to allow the soreness to get out of the joint.. Tyer said the tissue in the region needs to "calm down" before Portis attempts any hard rehab on the injured shoulder..

T Jon Alston is undergoing an MRI on his knee to determine the severity of his injury.. WR Atevius Cash remained sidelined with a hamstirng injury, S Cuirry Burns (hamstring) is out for the Jets game, LB Kevin Simon missed practice with an abdominal strain, T Chris Pino was held out with shoulder soreness, he is expected to return to practice tomorrow.. DE Nic Clemons did some individual drills today, may do more limited work tomorrow (knee contusion suffered in B'more scrimmage), CB Ade Jimoh is lifting weights but his sore sternum is not ready for any kind of contact yet, he will not play in the Jets game.. WR Richard Smith re-aggravted a high ankle sprain he suffered while playing in NFL Europe, his leg was in a boot.. T Jim Molinaro remains out rehabbing a surgically repaired knee, he won't play this weekend either..

The team signed CB Julian Battle a former 3rd round pick of the Chiefs who missed most of the '05 season with an achilles injury and S Antuan Edwards who is a seven year vet who has played for Green Bay, St. Louis, Miami and Atlanta.. He only appeared in four games for the Falcons a seaon ago..
To make room on the roster, the team cut OL Jonta Woodard and CB Chris Hawkins..

CB Mike Rumph participated in his first practice as a Redskin after Taylor Jacobs passed his physical in SF last night.. The three newcomers to the secondary were all subjected to the conditioning test run by Gregg Williams, 40 up downs.. Williams said he borrowed this technique from Buddy Ryan when he coached with him in Houston.. Williams says the point is that no one on his defense should get used to staying on the ground, that when a defense gets gashed it's because of poor tackling or playing not getting up quickly enough.. Rumph had been clued in to the conditioning test thanks to some of his ex-Hurricane teammates.. The others had a rude awakening.. Rumph joined secondary coach Jerry Gray at the crack of dawn this morning hoping to begin the assimilation process as a new Redskin defender..
Williams said the secondary situation is nothing he will panic about, that all of his CB's will be physical "or they'll be cut" and agreed this was the best time for Springs to undergo this procedure.. He also said he is constantly reminding Reed Doughty that his first NFL play is getting burned on a flea flicker, saying it's partially his fault for not relaying the information that allowed him to look "that foolish."

Carlos Rogers "is ready to have the best year of his career, college or pro." That according to Williams saying Rogers made the strides in his game the way Shawn Springs did a season ago..

Williams also touted the play of Rocky McIntosh in his first game saying he came off blocks at the point of attack in a way that has to be ingrained inside a player, nothing he can coach..

On DE Karon Riley who had a good game against Cincy with a sack, Williams said it means nothing, that Riley needs to prove he can do that against starters not against guys the Bengals are going to cut..

Joe Gibbs said that David Patten appears to be 100 percent saying yesterday's practice, he appeared to be "flying."

I spoke with both Mark Brunnell and Jon Jansen, both friends of Patrick Ramsey about playing him this weekend, both said they speak to Ramsey regularly and that he is happy in NY and hoping, like he was here to get a shot at starting.. Joe Gibbs reiterated his respect for Ramsey saying "He has a lot of friends here."
Gibbs also said that Jason Campbell could be playing right now for the Redskins but that the plan remains for Mark Brunnell to lead the team this season.. Campbell will be the first off the bench this Saturday and is expected to play about as many snaps as he did in Cincinnati, which ammounts to about one half of work..
