Arrington Re-injures Knee

Linebacker LaVar Arrington re-injured his right knee during Monday's practice session at Redskins Park. While the injury is not believed to be serious, his official status for Sunday's game against Green Bay will be determined later this week, head coach Joe Gibbs said.

"I think [Arrington] kind of lost footing out there," head coach Joe Gibbs said. "[Trainers] brought him in just to check it. We'll just take it day-to-day and see what happens. We'll just have to see what the doctor has to say."

Arrington is coming off of arthroscopic surgery on the knee that has sidelined him for the last four games. He was hopeful of playing in the Redskins' last game at Chicago, but team doctors felt it would be beneficial for him to get another week of recuperation from the bye and get ready for the Packers game on Oct. 31.

"We were anxious about him getting back to work," Gibbs said. "I don't think it is too much of a setback, but we'll see. He was excited about being out there. He took some light work before we took the break. He was out today and he just kind of slipped on the grass."

Busy Bye

Gibbs said the coaches huddled at Redskins Park during the bye weekend to prepare game plans for upcoming opponents, including Sunday's game against Green Bay.

The Redskins returned to practice on Monday after having the previous four days off.

"We were looking ahead at opponents and getting a lot of time and work in on our game plan preparation," Gibbs said. "For the players, what was important for them was that they got a break to get healed up and freshened up."
