College & Pro Football Off-Season Week In Review
Chad Jones, the New York Giants’ rookie safety, was involved in a one-car accident in Louisiana, suffering critical injuries. Jones, who was driving the car, has a broken left leg and ankle, while two passengers were apparently uninjured. An investigation ensues to find out what caused the accident.
After being a no show for mandatory mini-camp, Redskins DT Albert Haynesworth states he will attend training camp. The ‘Skins expected Haynesworth to participate in mini-camp after he was paid a $21 million roster bonus on April 1st. Haynesworth was given the opportunity to seek a trade prior to receiving the payment, however, no trade was consummated. Several Redskins players have publicly called Haynesworth “selfish” for his actions. Stay tuned.
Carolina Panthers WR Steve Smith suffered a broken arm this week after playing a flag football game. Smith broke the same arm he injured in Week 16 last year, ending his season. Typically, NFL teams ban players from participating in games like flag football because of possible injuries. Smith’s injury definitely comes at a bad time for the Panthers, since they will enter training camp for the first time in many years without quarterback Jake Delhomme, who was released earlier this year. Veteran QB Matt Moore and rookie QB Jimmy Clausen will battle for the starting job without having an opportunity to practice with Smith, who will likely miss all of training camp. The Panthers organization has not publicly stated whether or not action will be taken against Smith for the incident.
