Redskins Report

The Redskins still don't know how long defensive end Phillip Daniels will be sidelined. But they do know he won't play Sunday because of his groin tear. At this point, it's safe to say Daniels is week to week. The Redskins seem cautiously optimistic that he'd return sooner rather than later.

Daniels had an MRI on Monday, but it only revealed the tear and shed no further light on how much time he might miss.

Meanwhile, linebacker LaVar Arrington remains in Birmingham, Ala., rehabbing his knee. Further tests by Dr. James Andrews showed nothing more than what they already thought, that Arrington would miss several more weeks. The Redskins sent Arrington to Alabama because he was very down about the injury last week. By the time he was ready to leave (Sunday night), the knee started to feel better.

Linebacker Mike Barrow had what trainer Bubba Tyer termed his best practice today. Barrow was working mostly with the scout team defense.

Kicker John Hall also is listed as out, joining Daniels and Arrington. It's uncertain how long he'll be sidelined, but the Redskins won't rush him back. They fear that they'd bring him back too early, cut Ola Kimrin, have another team pick him up and find out that Hall re-injured himself.

Also on the injury report: CB Fred Smoot (shoulder), DE Renaldo Wynn (ankle), S Ryan Clark (shoulder) and RB Rock Cartwright (thumb) are probable.

For Cincinnati: OT Willie Anderson (knee), CB Rashad Bauman (Achilles), LB Caleb Miller (ankle), RB Chris Perry (abdomen) and DE Carl Powell (knee) are questionable.
