Just one day after being hurt during Monday’s night’s 45-12 loss to the New York Giants, the Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell wore back his Redskins jersey and returned to practice with his teammate on Tuesday.
Campbell was hurt when he was sacked from behind by Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora with 45 seconds remaining in the first half. Backup quarterback Todd Collins finished the half, but Campbell returned after the break, seeming that the injury was not serious enough to stop him passing ball.
Campbell was 2 for 7 for 10 yards when he was injured, with his first pass a 46-yard completion to Santana Moss. The Redskins trailed 24-0 at the time and had only one first down, but they soon lost the lead with two more players leaving the field because of injuries: right tackle Stephon Heyer left in the first half with a knee injury, and receiver Devin Thomas sprained his ankle early in the third quarter.
