Just a few notes from a short, windy Saturday practice.
- Clinton Portis was back at practice, but Albert Haynesworth and DeAngelo Hall were not. Hall was resting a sore knee but is expected to play Monday night; Haynesworth is still nursing an ankle and may be a gametime decision. Cornelius Griffin, Chris Horton, Kareem Moore, and Hunter Smith were also all back at practice and are expected to play.
- The Monday Night Football crew was on the sidelines doing their game prep — Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden, Ron Jaworski, Suzy Kolber — and Gruden’s presence led to all the sarcastic comments you’d expect from the media in attendance. Jaworski was keeping a careful eye on Jason Campbell, whose play he praised early last year, but of whom he was indirectly critical on Friday.
- Head coach Jim Zorn mentioned last night’s report on Chris Samuels, all but confirming the speculation that Samuels will be put on injured reserve at some point next week.
- Possibly the most interesting tidbit from Zorn’s post-practice remarks is that he expects newly-signed tackle Levi Jones to be activated on Monday night. “He’s really been committed,” Zorn said, “and Joe Bugel’s worked overtime with him, along with Casey Rabach, the center and communicator on our offensive line, and he’s come right along.” I talked with Jones about that after practice; that conversation is after the jump.
