Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor, who is facing a possible prison sentence, soon should be free to focus only on football this season.

Taylor’s attorney, Edward Carhart, said he will ask today for a continuance of the trial, scheduled for Sept.12, until after the completion of the Redskins’ season. Considering Michael Grieco, the state’s attorney for Miami-Dade County (Fla.), has said he wouldn’t oppose such a move, it’s likely Judge Mary Barzee will grant Carhart’s request Tuesday.

Taylor, 22, faces a mandatory minimum three-year sentence if he is found guilty on a felony assault charge, which stems from a June1 incident in Miami that began with the supposed theft of two of his all-terrain vehicles. Taylor also is charged with a simple battery misdemeanor.
