Springs will be a game-time decision
Cornerback Shawn Springs will be a game-time decision tomorrow when the Washington Redskins play host to Tennessee.
Springs, who has not played this season because of abdominal surgery and a groin injury, went through his third consecutive practice yesterday at Redskin Park.
“My spirits are high,” he said. “I would love to play, but that’s not up to me. I’ve practiced, and now I have to wait for them to give me the green light.”
After talking with reporters, Springs met with coach Joe Gibbs, assistant head coach-defense Gregg Williams and director of sports medicine Bubba Tyer on the field.
“He worked really good this week, and we’ll decide [tomorrow] on what we’ll do,” Gibbs said. “He’ll be a boost when he gets back in there.”
If Springs plays, he won’t start. Carlos Rogers and Kenny Wright will start for the sixth consecutive game.
In other injury news, defensive tackles Joe Salave’a (calf) and Cornelius Griffin (hip) and receiver David Patten (thigh) did not practice. All three are questionable, and Salave’a isn’t expected to play.
“Sometimes, we’re surprised with how quick these guys can bounce back,” Gibbs said. “But other times, it takes longer. In Cornelius’ case, he’s as tough as anybody, but he hasn’t bounced back and the same with Joe. When they’re not [practicing], you realize that it may take some time.”
Without Griffin and Salave’a, the Redskins likely will start two rookies at defensive tackle — Kedric Golston and Anthony Montgomery.
Linebacker Marcus Washington (hip), defensive end Phillip Daniels (back) and left guard Derrick Dockery (leg) all returned to practice.
Interested in Vincent
A source said the Redskins are interested in veteran defensive back Troy Vincent, who was released by the Buffalo Bills on Thursday.
Vincent injured his hamstring in the Bills’ season opener Sept. 10 and was placed on injured reserve, meaning he could not play for Buffalo this season. Vincent played for current Redskins cornerbacks coach Jerry Gray when Gray was the Bills’ defensive coordinator.
Vincent has experience as a cornerback (in Philadelphia) and safety (in Buffalo).
