October 3-- Portis doing better, Moss still questionable

WR Santana Moss did not practice today and said he is not sure of his availability for the game against Detroit.. Joe Gibbs said he is not ruling him out due to the groin injury, so we’ll see if he can do anything “football related” the next couple of days..

RB Clinton Portis has a knee contusion and a grade sprain of the MCL in his right knee, so although Joe Gibbs claimed does not have a knee sprain, according to the trainers he does.. That said he did take part in limited practice today and Gibbs feels as if he will be able to play Sunday against Detroit.. This is a different injury then the tendonitis he’s been dealing with throughout the summer, which again was considered “good news.”

WR Brandon Lloyd was kicked in the shin during practice and had to leave.. X-rays were negative so it’s a bruised shin.. We’ll see how he progresses through the week..

S Sean Taylor has a bruised knee that occurred before the Giants game and was limited in practice but the team feels as if he will be fine for Sunday.. CB Fred Smoot returned full go to practice today after missing the last two games with a hamstring injury..
G Randy Thomas (elbow) is obviously out for the Lions game..

Detroit injuries: RB Brian Calhoun, LB Alex Lewis, DE Corey Smith and CB Kevin Smith all missed practice.. LB Anthony Cannon, RB TJ Duckett, DE Kalimba Edwards and WR Calvin Johnson all were limited in their practice.. Williams missed last week’s game with Chicago with a back injury..

QB Jon Kitna said the fact that the Lions have never won in DC is not even an issue.. He said that you couldn’t name ten players in his locker room who would have even known that.. Coach Rod Marinelli was a little heated when asked about the history saying “Do you think when guys come out for warmups and run sprints to get in shape they are even thinking about that?”

Joe Gibbs spoke again about Mike Martz who’s offense comes from the same coaching tree as Gibbs (don Coryell).. Gibbs joked that Martz is “smater then me.” And Gibbs continued to tout the risks that Martz will take with his offense.. The Lions have ten turnovers and given up 18 sacks in four games but are 3 and 1 and are averaging 28 points a game.. Gibbs team has five turnovers and given up 4 sacks..

LB Marcus Washington said the biggest problem with wearing the arm brace for his injured elbow is that it is heavy and weighs his arm down.. He said he has been able to wrap up pretty effectively though and feels as if the injury hasn’t hindered him very much..

WR Reche Caldwell and WR Keenan McCardell are likely now to make their debuts this weekend with Lloyd and Moss in question.. Caldwell said he doesn’t want to talk about what he might bring to the field but felt as if he was ready to play two weeks ago, it was the team’s decision to wait out a couple more weeks..

OK men..
