August 1-- Randle El says Campbell in "Country."

RB Clinton Portis was held out of practice this morning and likely won’t practice this evening.. he is not expected to take part in the scrimmage this weekend either.. Trainer Bubba Tyer says Portis is suffering from some soreness in his knee, still dealing with patella tendonitis that plagued him during the OTA’s.. The team is tailoring his workouts differently working on strength and conditioning drills but keeping him out of full practice because the cutting and shifting is causing him discomfort.. Tyer believes Portis will miss days not weeks and the team is just taking a cautious approach with him..

T Chris Samuels was said to be doing good, very little swelling in his sprained knee.. He won’t practice this week or perform in the scrimmage, the timeline of four weeks has not be altered yet..

LB Dallas Sartz has a strained hamstring but upped his work in the morning practice.. FB Pete Schmidt did not tear his rotator cuff, he only has a bruised shoulder and is day to day..

G Randy Thomas did well in returning to portions of practice, they are “gradually getting him back in.”

LB Marcus Washington “felt something” in his hip the other day so the team is going to not have him participate in both practices when the team holds 2-a-days.. He did not participate in the morning session but is expected to go in the evening practice.. Washington said he does not have an issue practicing since the injury occurred early in the season but practicing at times can be tough.. He says he is not concerned with being healthy for the season, the team and he are just being careful now.. As far as the shift to rush end for passing downs, he said he is learning from Andre Carter and Phillip Daniels etc and that when he has questions, he asks.. Washington played rush end at Auburn so he is just “getting the rust off.”

WR Mike Espy is still being held out with a bruised knee, he can’t run and will be held out at least a few more days.. WR Carl Berman also missed practice with a hamstring strain, he is day to day..

WR Santana Moss was held out of portions of the morning practice.. He is dealing with leg soreness, he has some hip flexor issues.. Groin and hamstring pain was what Moss dealt with during the offseason.. This issue right now is that he feels like he is compensating due to the discomfort.. Like the rest of the players we have discussed the team will take a more cautious approach and not allow him to aggravate anything..

WR Antwaan Randle El was asked about Jason Campbell in the huddle last year and he said the team had a really hard time understanding him, he was calling one shift called “Falcon,” “Balco.” That was in his first start against Tampa.. Randle-El said the players were teasing Campbell throughout the off-season about knowing how to say the calls and learning how to drop his country Drawl…

S Laron Landry has a good moment in camp this morning intercepting a Campbell pass during 7 on 7 drills..

OK men.,,

I'm a big fan of the show and your work, but come on over your blog at least once before you post it. I can barely understand half of your sentences...

I've missed you since you left 980. Your night and Saturday shows were some of the best radio at that time. Hope eveything is working out over at RZ.
