October 12-- Springs close to playing, Washington suffered hip injury during a pregame stretch

CB Shawn Springs did more in practice on Thursday then he did the day prior even recording an interception during some team drills.. He "felt good" after the Wednesday practice and remains questionable to play against Tennessee..

DT Joe Salave'a was held out of practice (calf), he is questionable.. DT Corenlious Griffin (hip) did not practice he was described as probable with a little P, thus they expect him to go.. DE Phillip Daniels (shoulder) was also out of practice, he is probable.. WR david Patten (thigh) did not practice, probable...
G Derrick Dockery left the latter portions of practice after straining a hip felxor.. It has been described as mild and he is listed as probable..
P Derrick Frost returned after spending the day with his family to grieve the loss of his grandmother.,. He did do some of the punting and remains probable with a calf injury..

LB Marcus Washington missed a second straight day of practice.. He has a hip injury.. Trainers say he is feeling better and should return to practice, he is probable.. Washington told me the trouble began during the pre-game stretch against Houston.. He suffered what he deemed an accidental injury during the stretch.. So the issue has been lingering for a few weeks now.. He admitted he needs the bye week but doesn't think the injury will keep him off the field in either of the two games before the break...

Titans injury list: WR david Givens (thumb) out, TE Erron Kinney (knee) out, G Zach Pillar (ankle) out.. LB Ken Amato (quad), WR Drew Bennett (ankle) DE Travis Laboy (back/elbow), G benji Olson (ankle), LB Robert Reynolds (thigh), and RB Lendale White (stomach) are all questionable for the game..

Clinton Portis had his weekly presser with the media as Clinton Portis.. He said he did a costume last week because he "felt like it," not promising to dress up regularly any longer.. Portis said he knows that he has to give big performances for the Redskins offense to be successful.. He talked about this in terms of answering questions about how his performance affects the overall team play, not saying it to brag..

Gregg Williams said the biggest issue he had after the Giants game was his team's ability to get off blocks.. He was very angry with the tackling during the Jaguars game but said the tackling was better against NY, but the ability to free themselves off blocks was the biggest issue.. He said Andre Carter and Adam Archuletta are in a year long transition process learning the way this defense plays it's scheme trying to deflect some of the negative attention the two are receiving.. He said both are getting better and better but time will ultimately allow them to feel comfortable in the scheme..
Williams speaks with Jeff Fisher weekly, except this week, as the two families are close since their days in Tennessee.. He described their kids as treating each other like brothers and sisters.. He did take a jab back at Fisher who during the conference call said "I forgot more defense then Gregg will ever know" by saying, "You do forget a lot when you get older." Williams refused to take a big shot at Fisher saying the coach will use anything he can to spark his team.. He also described Fisher as the "King of trick plays." He said he will do anything at any time..
