Arrington Continues to Progress

Team officials updated the status of LaVar Arrington on Monday, saying that the Pro Bowl linebacker had no setbacks in the rehabilitation of his injured right knee last week.

"LaVar had an excellent week," director of sports medicine Bubba Tyer said. "He worked extremely hard for three days last week: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with no setbacks from his hard work. We are very pleased with his work and his effort."

Arrington will undergo the same workout routine at Redskins Park this week.

He is scheduled to visit with the team's medical consultant Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., in mid-February for another evaluation, Tyer added.

Last week, head coach Joe Gibbs called Arrington's knee the team's biggest injury concern heading into the offseason.

Early in the 2004 season, Arrington was diagnosed with a lateral meniscus injury in his right knee. He underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on Sept. 24 and was sidelined for 11 games.

Arrington returned to play in two games late in the season, but he was placed on injured reserve prior to the season finale due to the development of tendonitis in the knee.
