ASHBURN, Va. - -After learning that he could become paralyzed if he continued to play football, Washington Redskins Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels has told people in the organization that he will sit out the remainder of the season and plans to retire. Samuels, who suffered a serious neck injury about two weeks ago against the Carolina Panthers, reached his decisions after consulting with specialists, several of whom warned him about the possibility of no longer being able to walk if he attempted to prolong his career, NFL sources said.

ASHBURN, Va. - After watching his team tie a franchise record with 17 penalties, Washington Redskins coach Steve Spurrier said he would consider benching players who repeated their mistakes. Spurrier, who was most perturbed by a taunting call on wide receiver Darnerien McCants and an unnecessary roughness penalty on middle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter during Sunday's 24-21 overtime loss to the New York Giants, said pulling players for an extended period is an option. "If the players can't play within the rules, certainly you have to make changes," Spurrier said at his weekly news conference at Redskins Park.

ASHBURN, Va. - The last words out of the mouth of Washington Redskins first-round draft pick Chris Samuels as he was being whisked out of the team's interview room were, "Gotta get to practice." What followed next were a wide grin and a slide step out the door, as the 6-foot-5, 325-pound tackle went to dress and join his fellow rookies and free agents in the team's afternoon session. Hearing those words and watching those actions brought relief to coach Norv Turner, who was a little miffed about the absence of the draft's third overall pick at Monday's opening of training camp at Redskin Park.

ASHBURN, Va. - On Stephen Davis' 24th carry Sunday, there were two rookies and a center starting his eighth game attempting to create a big enough hole to get positive yardage and keep the clock running. They did a little better. Davis shot the gap created by the linemen and scampered all the way to the end zone from 16 yards, giving the Washington Redskins a 35-16 lead with just under five minutes left against host Jacksonville. The line paved the way for Davis' second touchdown of the afternoon without guard Keith Sims, who was resting his sore Achilles' tendon, and without Andy Heck, who had replaced Sims.

LANDOVER - Washington Redskins guard Keith Sims wants diversity. Six games into the season, all the teams are starting to look alike. And today's oponent, the 5-1 Ravens, are no different. For their past three games, the Redskins (4-2) have faced teams with strong defenses and questionable offenses. Now they face the Ravens, who epitomize that synopsis, especially with their defense top-ranked against the rush and fourth-ranked overall. "When are we going to face a defense ranked in the 20s?"
