August 29-- Punter inked and cut in one day, Gregg says don't believe what you see

The Redskins signed punter Eddie Johnson and after one practice, they released him.. He said he had just moved to Arizona and had to turn down a job interview to be work with a personal training service.. Whoops..
The team also signed former Lions special teams standout Vernon Fox.. He's still on the team..
The team released corner Dimitri Patterson and RB Jesse Lumsden to make room on the roster.. The team will have an open roster spot as of tomorrow when the waiving of Jonnson officially goes through..
The team also worked out former Cowboys punter Toby Gowin but he was not signed..

WR Santana Moss missed practice because he had a "day off." The team was not any more specific..
Other injuries: DE Phillip Daniels (back), DT Cornelious Griffin (knee), DT Demetric Evans (wisdom teeth), LB Robert McCune (hamstring), DE renaldo Wynn (ankle), Rb Clinton Portis (shoulder), CB Shawn Springs (abdominal)

Gregg Williams said he had to physically retrain Marcus Washington from going back into the game against NE last weekend.. It was an exmaple he gave of the effort of his team during the blowout loss.,. He also said he had hoped to cut a player after the game, but when he watched the film he was assuming he'd find someone who wasn't giving the effort he demands at the end of the game, but that never materialized...
Williams said the coaching staff has spent no time game planning any opponent this pre-season.. He said, like Al Saunders has said, they have been mixing and matching personnel and keeping the schemes close to the vest...
On the NE game though as a whole, he said "you never think something like that is going to happen but do I have confidence in the plan? Yep. Do I have confidence in the players? Yep." He said he "brought the house in Cincinnati and we know we can do that, so we are working on other things." So add Williams among the coaches not saying what has happened is scripted, but he's not concerned about what this team will look like when the season starts.. He also said that his room has been quite attentive since the last two weeks..
Williams also said the 3rd pre-season game is over-hyped, saying "Why would I should what I am going to do?"

Jason Campbell would say whether he thinks he won the back-up quarterback job.. he said he would be dissapointed if he didn't get it but he still believes that at some point his number will be called and he's ready...

Jimmy Farris said last year when he scored 2 Touchdowns against the Ravens in the pre-season finale but got cut anyway, allowed him to "drive back to Atlanta in peace." He said that when you do everything you are asked to do and you perform, then you can leave with piece of mind that he did everything he could have.. Farris like rookie Mike Espy are longshots to make the team with all the receivers on the roster.. Espy said he would be happy if the team asked him to be part of the practice squad, but of course is holding out hope he can stick somehow on the roster...
