Washington Redskins quarterback Mark Brunell sat out yesterday’s second practice to rest a sore arm and a left calf bruise sustained during the morning workout.

“Just taking a break — that’s what it was more than anything else,” he said. “I rested the arm a little bit and will come back [today].”

When pressed, Brunell said he was kicked in the calf in the morning practice and wore a sleeve on the leg.

“Certainly nothing of any concern,” he said. “Sometimes it helps to be 35 years old — you get an extra break.”

Said coach Joe Gibbs: “I don’t think it’s anything. He told me there was some swelling and it would have been hard for him to go.”

Director of sports medicine Bubba Tyer said Brunell’s leg had improved throughout the afternoon.

Jason Campbell assumed most of Brunell’s snaps during the 90-minute practice.
