INDIANAPOLIS - Joe Gibbs danced, Steve Mariucci hedged and Maurice Clarett ran, although not very well. Day 3 of the NFL's scouting combine raised more questions than it answered yesterday. Chief among them were these thorny predicaments: Will the Washington Redskins be able to accommodate wide receiver Laveranues Coles' trade request and still resolve their growing salary cap crisis? Does the imminent arrival of quarterback Jeff Garcia in Detroit push three-year Lions starter Joey Harrington out on a short limb?

The Steelers learned when Troy Polamalu went down with a knee injury last season what one player can mean to a team. Now the Steelers will start this season with an absence that's even more conspicuous. In April, the NFL suspended quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for the first six games of the season for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Although he is allowed to participate in training camp, Roethlisberger will have to step aside and hand over the offense — probably to Byron Leftwich — when the season starts.

ASHBURN, Va. - When the Washington Redskins take the field in their final preseason game tonight, wide receiver Patrick Woodcock is well aware of the task ahead of him. The second-year receiver is one of seven wide-outs on a Redskins roster that seems set with six - Laveranues Coles, Rod Gardner, Taylor Jacobs, Cliff Russell, Patrick Johnson and Darnerien McCants (Arundel). Woodcock's play tonight (8 o'clock, chs. 4, 24) against the Jaguars in Jacksonville could determine whether the Washington coaches decide to keep six or seven wide receivers.

Acquiring a home-field edge Maybe it's the relative lack of noise. Or maybe the stadium is too new to have forged a winning tradition. Whatever the reason, the Redskins have been mediocre at FedEx Field. The problem isn't attendance. Redskins games have been sold out for the past 37 seasons. In the games attracting the seven largest FedEx crowds, Washington is 2-5. In fact, two of the team's biggest collapses the past two seasons - a 35-13 drubbing by Tampa Bay last year and a 37-7 loss to Philadelphia in 2002 - came at home.

ASHBURN, Va. - For all the positives the Washington Redskins gleaned from their first 2-0 start since 1991, the struggles of the offensive line continued to trouble coaches and players alike yesterday. Not even the joy of a come-from-behind 33-31 victory against the Atlanta Falcons (1-1) on Sunday could mask the problems of a unit that underwent an overhaul during the offseason and was supposed to be one of the team's strengths this fall. The offensive line allowed Atlanta to sack Patrick Ramsey six times - five of which came during the first half.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs said LaVar Arrington will return to practice tomorrow for the first time in almost three months, and the mobility on his surgically repaired right knee will determine whether the three-time Pro Bowl linebacker will play the rest of this season. Arrington, who has missed 10 straight games since straining the lateral meniscus in the knee against the New York Giants on Sept. 19, had appeared set to return Oct. 31 against the Green Bay Packers.

ASHBURN, Va. - Never mind that, as one of the Washington Redskins' go-to guys, he has yet to catch a touchdown pass. And don't ask him to dwell on the injuries that have hampered his productivity during what is becoming a testy season for him and the rest of his teammates. Laveranues Coles said he feels good. The ailing middle finger and thumb on his right hand are healing. He is enjoying a crisp week of practice. Regardless of how he performs Sunday in Chicago, if Washington reverses a four-game losing streak, with or without an awakening by its struggling offense, Coles' world will look a little brighter.

CHICAGO - Running back Clinton Portis was talking again. Head coach Joe Gibbs was smiling again. And the pain in both of cornerback Fred Smoot's shoulders could not dampen his joy and relief. Who cared how ugly the proceedings were at Soldier Field yesterday? The Washington Redskins found their missing ground game, as Portis led the way with a season-high 171 rushing yards on 36 carries. They got two field goals from Ola Kimrin, a Swede who had never kicked one in a regular-season game.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It was the start of the second quarter yesterday and the Washington Redskins were precisely where they had hoped and fully expected to be. Leading 7-0, Washington had just thrown Ron Dayne for a loss on fourth down and took over, with New York Giants fans sensing their team was beginning an inevitable slide toward the team's 10th straight regular-season defeat. Three plays later, Washington quarterback Mark Brunell fumbled, and the Giants converted the miscue into a touchdown.

LANDOVER - A broken play fixed the Washington Redskins' breakdown. Quarterback Patrick Ramsey's 24-yard scamper on a fruitless pass attempt late in the fourth quarter led to kicker John Hall's game-winning, 33-yard field goal with five seconds left as the Redskins earned a 16-13 victory over the New York Jets last night before 85,420 at FedEx Field. Armed with a 13-7 lead at halftime in the NFL's prime-time season opener, Washington let the Jets claw their way back to a tie. New York converted two turnovers by Ramsey in the second half into two field goals by Doug Brien to tie the game at 13 with 8:13 left in the fourth quarter.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Ravens left with more concerns than merely watching their 12-game preseason winning streak come to an end. In a 16-3 loss to the New York Jets last night at Giants Stadium in the Meadowlands, the Ravens left cringing over injuries, penalties and a surprisingly sloppy effort. The defending Super Bowl champions had a debut to forget as left tackle Jonathan Ogden and cornerback Duane Starks sustained injuries and then witnessed their offense and defense limp throughout the game.
