CARLISLE, PA., AUG. 4 -- Running back George Rogers hobbled off the practice field at the Washington Redskins' Dickinson College training camp this evening with a sprained big toe on his left foot.
"Turf toe," Rogers said as he walked. "It got bent back on a play. I'll be back tomorrow."
Trainer Bubba Tyer isn't quite so sure. Rogers has been listed as day-to-day, so it's uncertain whether he will be able to practice Wednesday.
Running back Kelvin Bryant received a bit more practice time today due to Rogers' injury.
Offensive tackle Mark May did not dress for practice because of the sprained right knee he suffered on the third play from scrimmage Monday morning, the veterans' first day of practice.
This morning, the Redskins underwent mandatory urinalysis drug testing and were offered voluntary tests for the AIDS virus.
Coach Joe Gibbs would not say how many players took the AIDS test. "A large number of guys turned out for it," he said. "It was confidential who took it, so I'm not going to talk about numbers or how many."
At least two players who requested that their names not be used said they did not take the AIDS test. Both said they planned to be tested, but by their own doctors. They said they were concerned about the confidentiality of the team's test.
The club waived six free agents today: defensive end John Guzik of Ohio University, center Keith Radecic of Penn State, offensive tackle Theodore Romney of Missouri, defensive tackle Robert Scott of Tennessee, linebacker Tony Settles of Elon and offensive tackle Norries Wilson of Minnesota. The roster stands at 93 (45 rookies/first-year players and 48 veterans).
