Campbell suffered a dislocated left kneecap in Thursday's 24-16 win over Chicago. An MRI today revealed no ligament damage so no surgery will be needed. Typically, these injuries can take at least four weeks to heal. With three games left in the Redskins' season, that would leave Campbell needing the Redskins to make the playoffs in order to play again.
"Thankfully, I had the opportunity to do a lot of successful things
this year and it's something to build off of,'' Campbell said, "so
it's not all bad.''
Redskins associate head coach/offense Al Saunders told a local TV
station that Campbell is all but finished. However, nobody would rule
"It's hard to say," Campbell said. "We're taking everything day by
day and week by week. We'll see how this thing improves over the next
couple of weeks. What I have to do now is stay off it as much as
Todd Collins will start in his place. Collins will make his first start
since Dec. 14, 1997 when he faces the New York Giants on Dec. 16th.
