Springs, Jimoh Among Injuries to Watch

As the Redskins prepare for this Saturday's Wild Card playoff game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, one focus will almost certainly be on the team's secondary, which has a number of injuries that bear watching.

In Sunday's 31-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, cornerback Shawn Springs re-aggravated a groin injury in the first half.

In the second half, reserve cornerback Ade Jimoh, who had replaced Springs in the lineup, left the game with what was initially called an illness.

Later, Jimoh was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat.

Team officials will update the status of Springs and Jimoh on Monday.

The Redskins entered the game without cornerback Carlos Rogers, who was declared inactive for the third consecutive game due to a biceps injury.

Rogers did not practice last week, but he has increased his workload and the range of motion in the biceps area.

Walt Harris started in place of Rogers, opposite Springs. When Jimoh went down with the injury, recently signed cornerback Christian Morton came into the game.

The Redskins also have rookie cornerback Dimitri Patterson on the roster, but Patterson was also deactivated for Sunday's game.

The Redskins' complete list of inactive players was as follows: Rogers, running back Nehemiah Broughton, cornerback Dimitri Patterson, safety Matt Bowen, defensive linemen Aki Jones and Ryan Boschetti and wide receiver Jimmy Farris. The third quarterback was Jason Campbell.

As expected, Mark Brunell started Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The 14-year veteran quarterback entered the game recovering from a knee injury and was listed as probable for the game.
