Redskins add 2 ex-Steelers

| Tuesday, Aug. 24, 2010

The Washington Redskins have signed safety Tyrone Carter and fullback Carey Davis, addressing two positions that were hit with knee injuries to starters in the last preseason game.

Carter and Davis both practiced Monday. Carter has 53 starts over his 10 NFL seasons with Minnesota, the New York Jets and the Steelers. He started 12 games for the Steelers last year.

Carey also comes from Pittsburgh, where he started 10 games over three seasons but was used sparingly last year.

Free safety Kareem Moore sprained his right knee and fullback Mike Sellers hurt his left knee in Saturday's loss to Baltimore.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan met with Albert Haynesworth yesterday and kept the conversation to himself, saying it's "completely ridiculous" to keep talking about it publicly.

QB Collins signs with Bears

The Bears signed 38-year-old Todd Collins, who's played for Washington, Kansas City and Buffalo. He is expected to battle the injured Caleb Hanie for the No. 2 spot behind starter Jay Cutler.

Falcons trade Ojinnaka to Pats for draft pick

The Atlanta Falcons traded guard Quinn Ojinnaka to the New England Patriots for an undisclosed draft pick.

Ojinnaka is suspended without pay for the season opener for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Feeley held out, Bradford to start Thursday

No. 1 draft pick Sam Bradford will get his first start with the St. Louis Rams this week.

A.J. Feeley, who had been starting at quarterback, will not practice this week because of thumb and elbow injuries.

Giants' Ross, Barden, Johnson out with injuries

New York Giants cornerback Aaron Ross probably is going to be sidelined this week with inflammation in his right foot.

The team says Ross has been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, an inflammation and swelling of tissue at the bottom of the foot.

The Giants also said that second-year receiver Ramses Barden and safety Michael Johnson are dealing with back problems.

Seahawks release WR to add another

The Seattle Seahawks have released former Oregon State wide receiver Mike Hass to make roster room for newly acquired free agent wide receiver Brandon Jones.

The team had agreed to terms with Jones on Sunday. The 27-year-old played in eight games for San Francisco after the 49ers gave him a $16.6 million free-agent contract last year.

Schilens may need scope on knee

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Chaz Schilens went to a knee specialist to determine whether he would need arthroscopic surgery.

The injured knee is just the latest setback for Schilens, who missed significant time last season with a broken left foot that still hindered him early in training camp.
