Redskins' Green gets limited workout

November 21, 1992|By Vito Stellino | Vito Stellino,Staff Writer

Washington Redskins cornerback Darrell Green yesterday was cleared by doctors to practice for the first time since he suffered a broken forearm in the second game of the season against the Atlanta Falcons.

But Green, who was at first feared lost for the season, had only limited duty in the workout and isn't expected to be activated for the game Monday night against the New Orleans Saints.

The team's other starting cornerback, Martin Mayhew, was sidelined with the same injury last week, so Alvoid Mays will start in that spot.

A. J. Johnson, who replaced Green, has missed practice the past two days with a knee injury, but the Redskins hope he can play. If he can't go, Johnny Thomas will start in his place.

Coach Joe Gibbs also said that Danny Copeland, who aggravated a neck injury last week, probably won't play Monday. Todd Bowles will start for him.

Besides Copeland and Johnson, four other players didn't practice: defensive back Sidney Johnson (knee, hip), defensive lineman Tim Johnson (rib) and guards Joe Jacoby (back) and Mark Schlereth (knee). Of those four, Johnson is the least likely to play Monday.
