The struggling Washington Redskins suffered another major setback yesterday with the news that defensive lineman Charles Mann will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee tomorrow.The surgery, which will be performed in Birmingham, Ala., by Dr. Charles Andrews, will be Mann's eighth knee operation, including six on his right knee."It's not good news," coach Richie Petitbon said. "Charles is one of our best players. You can't lose a guy like that and not be affected. It just means our healthy guys are going to have to play their tails off."

CARLISLE, Pa. -- Joe Johnson has no problem remembering when he first heard that the Washington Redskins had drafted Desmond Howard last April."I just got off the plane coming from Frankfurt, and I was going through customs in Dallas when some guy who just happened to be there walked over. I just happened to be the guy there when he said, 'in case anybody is interested, Washington moved up to the fourth pick and picked Desmond Howard.' "Johnson's reaction?"Of course, I was sick from then on," said Johnson, a Redskins' wide receiver.
