August 8-- Fight at practice, O-line depth issues

QB Mark Brunnell was held out of the afternoon practice with a bruised calf.. he was kicked in the lower leg during the morning practice.. It swelled up, he, Joe Gibbs and the training staff believe it is nothing serious and he coule be practicing at tomorrow night's practice..

WR Brandon Lloyd was held out of both practices with a tight hip flexor, he is day to day..

T Jim Molinaro has a tear of the lateral meniscus, he is scheduled for surgery to repair it at a Reston Hospital Wednesday morning, there is no timetable for his return.. The procedure is a scope..
S Dennard Wilson will also undergo a knee scope, he has received an injury settlement and was released.. The team signed former Panthers 5th round draft pick Ben Emmanuel to replace him on the roster..

Other injuries: Rookie LB Kevin Simon missed both practices with a mild abdominal strain.. WR Ataveus Cash was held out with a hamstring strain.. S Curry Burns also was out with a hamstring, DL Manaia Brown remains out with a groin, DE Nic Clemons remains out with a knee contusion, TE Calen Powell was out with a quad injury but is expected to return tomorrow, he's been out since last week, RB Ladell Betts was limited with a hamstring strain, he is expected to increase his workload tomorrow.. DT Anthony Montgomery was out as well with a hamstring..

CB Carlos Rogers returned to both practices and was said to have come out of both of those well.. TE Robert Johnson also returned to practice after missing yesterday with an ankle injury suffered in the scrimmage..

There was a practice skirmish in the morning session.. Rookie draft pick Reed Doughty knocked Mike Sellars out of bounds, a little too hard for Jon Jansen's taste.. The tackle came over and said something to Doughty, in came rookie Dt Kedric Golston who said something to Jansen.. jansen then started swinging at Golston.. It didn't last long, Golston laughed it off after practice and said it takes a dumb rookie to get a reaction like that in a relatively quiet camp.. Jansen wasn't worried about his previously broken thumb calling the cast a device that can be used to hit somebody if he has to..

Practice highlight in the afternoon came on a perfect long strike connected between Todd Collins and James Thrash.. Antawn randle-El was used to throw a pass back to Collins on a WR option play..

John Hall talked about the misses in the scrimmage on Saturday and said he is not concerned and that it is not a big deal.. He said it was only the second time he was kicking live since offseason surgery to repair torn pelvic muscles.. He says everyone should just forget about the 46 and 47 yard kicks wide left.. His range was fine, sources say his technique needed a little tweaking and that this was addressed on Monday.. Joe Gibbs said he has full confidence in Hall and his job is something no one should be concerned about..

Joe Bugel and Joe Gibbs discussed O-line depth now that Molinaro is out for an extended period of time.. Bugel said the depth chart has changed since the scrimmage.. Undrafted rookie Chris Pino has moved into backl-up right tackle and will be the first in line Sunday in Cincinnati when the starters go out.. Veteran Tyson Walter will be the back-up at left tackle when the reserves come in.. Another rookie, Jasper Harvey has improved in the eyes of the coaches and now has a shot at an interior O-line spot.. Molinaro according to sources was struggling in recent days as well.. He was perceived as the top back-up at tackle..

Chris Cooley said he feels more comfortable, feels like he can just be himself here in DC and that he doesn't mind being perceived as a goofball.. Cooley said he plays fantasy football with old high school and college friends and last year one of his teams made the playoffs but lost when the team he played in fanatsy ball started him in a late season game against Dallas.. Cooley scored three touchdowns that day.. He said since a
