Sav Rocca’s Bye Week Not So ‘Interesting’

Of all the guys currently on the Washington Redskins’ roster, punter Sav Rocca would probably enjoy a trip home during the Bye Week the most.

But he can’t, you see. Rocca’s got two strikes against him: first, he must stick around the team’s Ashburn, Va., headquarters to receive treatment for an injured knee; secondly, round trip, Rocca’s trip home would exceed 20,000 miles.

And that’s without connecting flights and layovers.

Rocca, a Reservoir, Australia, native, said the interesting part of his Bye Week won’t include a trip home down under.

“Well, it depends on if you call coming in here for treatment every day interesting,” Rocca said yesterday.

Rocca is continuing to battle the effects of a torn meniscus in his kicking leg, but decided to play through the pain after suffering the injury a couple weeks ago.

Interestingly, Rocca had one of the best performances of the season last Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, punting three times with a 45.7-yards-per-punt average.

“It’s getting there,” Rocca said of his knee. “I’d like to think it’ll get much better from here. I think it’s a maintenance thing from here; I think there’s always going to be a little bit of pain, but we’ll be able to manage it, I think.”

So though a majority of Rocca’s Bye Week will be spent on a training table in Virginia, he’ll have his next trip home to plan in his head.

It just doesn’t work out this time around.

“I don’t have enough time to go back to Australia at the moment,” he said. “It’s too far. I lose two days just getting there.”
