Samuels could be out for a month
An MRI late last night confirmed the initial diagnosis. Samuels tore the MCL in the same knee in 2003, causing him to miss three games.
“I thought it was over for the season [when it happened],” Samuels said before heading to the MRI exam. “But the Good Lord blessed me. I know that I’m fine. … I think I’m OK. I didn’t feel anything pop. We’ll see how long it takes to get back on the field.”
Samuels was helped off the field and carted to the training room, where he was examined by the training staff.
“He was going down to the ground and had his knee bent,” director of sports medicine Bubba Tyer said. “He said it could have been worse if his knee was straight.”
The Redskins‘ offensive line missed only one “man game” to injury last year but now is without two starters. Right guard Randy Thomas has not practiced this training camp because of right knee soreness. But he did some running drills yesterday and will do individual drills today.
“He was one of those unusual people that could actually say, ‘Here’s a play. It’s going to work and here’s what’s going to happen,’ ” said coach Joe Gibbs, who was 2-3 against Walsh. “That’s one of the hardest things in football.”
Gibbs‘ son Coy played at Stanford in the 1990s during Walsh’s second tenure as the school’s coach. Redskins executive Vinny Cerrato worked with Walsh when both were in the San Francisco front office in the mid 1990s. Associate head coach Al Saunders knew Walsh for years because of their ties to San Jose State, and defensive end Andre Carter was the 49ers’ first-round pick in 2001, Walsh’s last season in the NFL.
“He was such an amazing person,” Carter said. “When we first met, he told me, ‘We brought you in because we believe in your speed, your work ethic and confidence.’ ”
