Injuries Have Gibbs Seeking "Miracles"

Redskins corners Shawn Springs and Carlos Rogers both suffered injuries Sunday that have left their status in doubt for the Dallas game.

Springs has strains in his back and his groin while Rogers has a badly bruised bicep in his left arm. He left Redskins Park in a sling. Rogers hurt his bicep in the first quarter, but continued to play. Springs left in the third quarter.

Director of sports medicine Bubba Tyer called them day-to-day. Neither player was available for an interview.

Also, it's uncertain whether or not nickel corner Walt Harris will be available. He hurt his calf in practice Thursday and did not play against Arizona Sunday.

''We need some miracles,'' Redskins coach Joe Gibbs said.

If they can't play, Ade Jimoh would start and Dimitri Patterson would be promoted off the practice squad.

Left tackle Chris Samuels (knee/ankle) is expected to play as is linebacker LaVar Arrington (thigh). Defensive tackle Joe Salave'a (foot) should be fine as well.

Meanwhile, defensive tackle Brandon Noble (knee) is back on crutches and facing more surgery. He hasn't made an announcement regarding his future, but this latest setback -- he's had pain and swelling in his knee -- does not bode well for any return.
