    Taylor Injured

    No matter how great your draft is, one twisted knee can change everything in a heartbeat. Hope Udeze is in shape when he finally signs, eh?




    ASHBURN, Va. -- A day after signing a seven-year, $18 million contract with the Washington Redskins, rookie safety Sean Taylor sprained his right knee during practice on Wednesday.

    Taylor was taken to a local hospital for an MRI and the results were negative. Team trainers characterized his injury as day-to-day and said he could be on the field for the opening of training camp Saturday.

    The team's first-round draft pick was hurt as he rolled out of bounds while defending a play near the end of the practice, which came on the final day of a three-day passing camp.

    Rookie free agent Dennard Wilson injured his left leg during the practice and underwent surgery late in the afternoon. Coach Joe Gibbs did not have details of Wilson's injury, but he made it clear that it was more serious than Taylor's.

    "It's the No. 1 fear you always have -- the injuries," Gibbs said. "So far, we've been kind of fortunate. Today it kind of bit us."

    Taylor, the No. 5 overall draft pick from Miami, was taking part in his first practice since signing his contract. He is projected as the opening day starter at free safety.

    The injury is the latest in a series of misadventures for Taylor, who fired his agent shortly after the draft and didn't hire a new one until last week. He also was fined $25,000 by the NFL for leaving a mandatory rookie symposium in June and injured an eye during a minicamp prank when a pile of shaving gel was squirted into his face by linebacker LaVar Arrington.
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    yeah thats true it happened to us last year with rogers collarbone. first round pick out for the season just like that. that is just the type of game football is.

    that story about arrington squirting him with shaving gel kind of cracked me up. wouldn't that be funny to see on an injury report?

    Actually have a lot of yooper blood in me, so that's where it comes from. I did get rid of the "dis" and "dot" and "de uttder ting" most yoopers have otherwise.
