FROSTBURG -- The Washington Redskins' biggest setback yesterday wasn't on the scoreboard.Their 17-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in a rookie scrimmage was overshadowed by the loss of second-round draft pick Cory Raymer for three months and possibly for the season when he fractured his left ankle on the first series.The Redskins didn't even bother to X-ray the ankle before deciding it was broken and will need surgery in Washington today. He'll have pins or a plate inserted in the ankle to stabilize it."

Poker superstars Howard Lederer, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson and Greg Raymer will be gathering today for another high-stakes affair. But instead of betting, bluffing and check-raising each other, the card pros will be voicing their thoughts in Washington about proposed federal legislation that would definitively stamp online poker as illegal. At the moment, online poker and some types of casino-style gambling operate in a legal limbo. While it is clear that online sports gambling is illegal and operators of such sites can be -- and have been -- prosecuted, there is debate over whether the laws that apply to Internet betting on a football game also apply to betting pocket aces.

ASHBURN, Va. - Washington Redskins center Cory Raymer injured the medial collateral and anterior cruciate ligaments in his right knee during yesterday's practice. Raymer underwent a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) last night to determine the extent of the injury. If the anterior cruciate ligament is torn, Raymer would miss the entire season. Either way, it is doubtful Raymer will be ready for the Sept. 3 season opener against the Carolina Panthers. Redskins coach Norv Turner has already said he is out of Saturday's preseason game at Cleveland, and backup center Mark Fischer will start in his place.

LAS VEGAS - Defending World Series of Poker champion Greg Raymer was eliminated last night in 25th place as play continued in the 2005 No-Limit Texas Hold 'em title tournament. He suffered his biggest loss in a 4 million chip pot in which his pocket kings lost to a flush, which came on the last card. Still, Raymer took his ouster in stride. "I don't think you can prove anything in poker other than you're playing well," he said. "But results don't prove anything other than in the long run."

For millions of TV viewers who have watched the countless reruns of last year's World Series of Poker main event, winner Greg Raymer is frozen in time wearing his trademark novelty sunglasses and gleefully holding aloft a fistful of bundled cash - part of a $5 million payday. Not surprisingly, as a result of that improbable victory, the life of the unassuming 40-year-old Connecticut patent attorney changed. But it also was nearly ended. One night in December, after playing poker at the ritzy Bellagio in Las Vegas and looking forward to competing in a televised tournament the next day, Raymer found himself staring down a gun barrel as two holdup men demanded his money.

Last week, The Sun asked Anne Arundel County readers for their views on whether the start time for high schools should be pushed back from 7:17 a.m., the earliest in the state. Budgets shouldn't dictate start times We've got to stop letting budget constraints and transportation expense dictate high school start times. With two high-schoolers, we've experienced firsthand how difficult it is to have them starting school so early in the morning. The ability of our youth to stay awake to learn and their health and safety should be much more important to us as a society than all of the other factors that are holding us back from fixing this problem.

ASHBURN, Va. - After acquiring the Washington Redskins in 1999, Daniel Snyder developed a reputation as a fan with a bankroll - an owner with a fantasy footballer's infatuation with big names and big numbers. Jessie Armstead. Mark Carrier. Jeff George. Deion Sanders. Bruce Smith. All had seen better days before arriving in Washington. According to the front office staff, it's no accident that the team's highest-profile acquisitions have gotten younger in the past few years. Better, too. "We learned because of the [salary]

ASHBURN, Va. -- In advance of Monday's game at Green Bay's Lambeau Field, Washington Redskins center Cory Raymer, a Wisconsin native, has been scrambling to find extra tickets for friends and relatives. But, in the wake of three fumbled snap exchanges in the Redskins' 30-3 loss to the San Diego Chargers in the opener nearly two weeks ago, Raymer -- and the rest of the offense, for that matter -- has had to spend time going back to the basics."[The center snap] is just so fundamental that it shouldn't be a factor.

CLEVELAND - The moment came at the perfect time for llne backer LaVar Arlington. The Washington Redskins offense was rolling, the defense was domlnating and Arlington had slipped into the game midway through the second quarter.

Arlington burst into the Browns' backfield, then lifted the 206-pound running back off his feet making his most impressive hit as a Redskln. It was one of only six plays the Browns' offense had in the second quarter.

ASHBURN, Va. - Cory Raymer had his chance; now Mark Fischer has his. This is how Washington Redskins coach Norv Turner is approaching the loss of his starting center for at least the next six weeks. Raymer, who had started 37 straight games for the Redskins, has two partially torn ligaments in his right knee and will be sidelined until the fifth game at best. Fischer will start at center for Saturday's preseason game against Cleveland. Barring inept performances in the remaining two preseason games, Fischer will start in the season opener against the Carolina Panthers.
