Receiver Nate Washington aggravated his sprained left wrist again Friday afternoon when he hit the turf trying to catch a pass. He screamed in agony, but never left the field.
He later explained that the wrist is actually on the mend.
"That's the problem. It's gotten so good to where sometimes I forget that my wrist is hurting and I just stick it in there," he said. "It just got bent back the wrong way today.''
Catching footballs doesn't hurt, Washington said.
"The wrist itself is strong — it's just (absorbing impact) that we're trying to get stronger,'' he said. "The training staff is throwing some different tape jobs out there and some different maneuvers. I just have to work through it.''
Washington is merely a backup in the fantasy world.
