Gibbs Makes A Quick Pit Stop

Redskins coach Joe Gibbs said he feels fine. And he said it over and over again this morning at Redskins Park, stressing that Monday's trip to a hospital in Florida when he realized his insulin level was too low was no big deal.

``There was nothing to this, believe me,'' Gibbs, who has diabetes, told a local NBC reporter at Redskins Park this morning. ``I switched my medication without knowing it and I wanted to stop by the hospital to make sure nothing was off. I was afraid I was going to have a reaction to it. I was fine to go.''

Gibbs received a shot from doctors at Flagler Hospital in St. Augustine, Fla., and was released. He was driven to the hospital by Jaguars quarterback Mark Brunell. The two had been at dinner before they went to the hospital. They resumed their meeting after the incident.

The Redskins would like to acquire Brunell, but they will have competition. San Diego is very interested as is Miami. There's doubt about Dallas' interest -- one Cowboys source said they had none. Or at least would not give up enough to probably land him.

``We had a real good meeting,'' Gibbs told NBC. ``I have meetings scheduled for next week and we'll criss-cross the country talking to players and running down players we think would make good Redskins.''
