Hunter Smith Is Hopeful, Shaun Suisham Is Thankful (In The Canadian Tradition)

Posted by Matt Terl on October 14, 2009 – 4:26 pm

As I mentioned this morning, Glenn Pakulak is back in the building (and still totally enthused to be here, too: “Alive for another week,” he said today).

But don’t rule Hunter Smith out just yet. “We’re just taking it day-to-day,” Smith said, “see how it feels. It’s significantly better than it was this time last week, but I couldn’t make any promises on playing or not.”

Smith was exceedingly frustrated about not having been able to contribute last week — “It was difficult,” he said bluntly. “I don’t like it. I wanna be out there helping our team, but like I said, at the same time, I wanna be well when I come back.” — but he was complimentary of Pakulak’s work in relief.

The Revamped Offensive Line Is Cautiously Optimistic

Posted by Matt Terl on October 14, 2009 – 11:26 am

If I had to characterize the mood of the locker room today — and I did, actually, when we were taping Redskins Nation for Comcast SportsNet — I’d call it “frustrated.” Not with each other, per se, and not with the coaches.

The Redskins filled the empty spot in the practice squad this morning with the guy who vacated it late last week: punter Glenn Pakulak. Seems likely that Pakulak will be around until Hunter Smith is absolutely 100% again. Plus, hey, it’s always good to have a bartender handy. Read more »

Wednesday, October 14: So What Happened To Chris Samuels?

Posted by Matt Terl on October 14, 2009 – 9:21 am


Redskins left tackle Chris Samuels was in Greenbelt, Maryland, yesterday, to help Governor Martin O’Malley launch a campaign to educate people about the state’s Medical Assistance for Families program.

And, as is the way of such things, this provided a perfect time for Samuels to answer a few questions about football and his injury. Samuels confirmed Head Coach Jim Zorn’s assessment Monday that he’s out for this week’s game, and said that he’d visit the doctor next week “kind of to reassess everything and just figure out what I want to do.”

Since it was a health education event, it also seems like an appropriate time to address a question that I’ve heard repeatedly since Sunday’s game: what, exactly, is a “stinger”? Read more »
