Park Report: Harris Misses Practice

Harris and Hall don't practice and Gibbs has a chat with LaVar

. . . Corner Walt Harris (quad) did not practice and is in danger of missing a second straight game. Safety Pierson Prioleau did practice, a good sign for his chances Sunday. How much he plays is another matter.

. . . Don't be surprised if kicker John Hall is out for at least a few more weeks -- if not more. Hall still hasn't attempted any kickoffs and at some point the Redskins face a decision. They don't want to stay with two kickers on the roster for too long. And they're obviously pleased with Nick Novak, at least for one game.

. . . Saw linebacker LaVar Arrington and coach Joe Gibbs have a little discussion on the way up from the practice field today. They stopped about 15 yards from a TV camera to finish it up and at one point it appeared Arrington was frustrated and Gibbs upset. No one would say what the conversation was about, but it did not seem to leave either party satisfied.

. . . Right tackle Jon Jansen's left thumb is progressing well and it's just a matter of time before he gets the cast off, leaving him with only one.

. . . Cedric Killings got his number painted in the parking lot after a stellar performance Sunday. Killings showed good strength and hustle and contributed.

. . . Novak and Mark Brunell also got their numbers painted in the lot. Mike Sellers earned a special teams award for the best hit.

. . . The woman whom Novak dedicated his game-winning kick to Sunday, Annie Arth, a family friend from West Lafayette, Ind., died from ovarian cancer about a half-hour after his kick. He plans to send the game ball he received to her family.
