September 5-- Rocky's no Sissy

RB Clinton Portis rehabbed but did not practice today still dealing with a shoulder injury.. Joe Gibbs called his status day to day..
CB Shawn Springs did not practice as well.. He described his status as a work in progress..
DE Renaldo Wynn missed practice as well with a sprained ankle.. He says he remains hopeful that he will be able to play on Monday night.. Portis will not play unless he practices as some point in time during the week..
Back at practice today was DE Phillip Daniels (back) and DT Cornelious Griffin (knee), both appear as if they will be ready for the Monday night opener..
Practice squad LB Robert McCune was out of practice as well with a hamstring injury..

The Redskins signed former Dolphins and Texans tackle Todd Wade and released G Ike Ndwuke.. Ndwuke could potentially be resigned to the practice squad if he clears waivers… Wade is a 7 year veteran, a former second round and is 6’8”.. Joe Gibbs said no one cut a Tackle of note during the releases over the weekend which made the team move forward with signing Wade.. Wade worked out for the team a few weeks back and admittedly was looking for a team where he could compete for a starting position.. He said time had run out and it was time to sign with someone..

Jason Campbell said he believes the coaching staff has shown trust in him in regard to the back-up plan which allows fro Campbell to the starter should Mark Brunell suffer an injury that would last beyond a game..

LB Rocky McIntosh answered a question about how confident he is heading into the season by saying that “I’m far from being a sissy.” I will be following up with Gregg Williams at some point to see where “Sissy” might have crept into his mindset… Warrick Holdman admitted he just played bad last year and that he wanted to prove to his coaches that he is much better then this.. Holdman is expected to see the bulk fo the snaps at weak side linebacker..

Mark Brunell said that it doesn’t matter if “you have the greatest plays in the history of the NFL, it’s all about execution.” Brunell has now expressed concern over the team’s ability to execute the playbook for the second time this week.. No one in the locker room seems to be overly concerned with the state of the offense following the pre-season, but what they’ve hidden does get unleashed for the first time and now the players have to prove they can run it.. Santana Moss predicted a better showing now that what the team is doing during the week will ultimately be used in a game..

The Skins have an off day tomorrow, back at practice on Thursday..
