Skins Notes: Hall Injury Worse Than Thought
--Incumbent punter Derrick Frost faces a stiffer challenge from Australian David Lonie. Frost, whom Washington signed off waivers three games into last season, posted a 36.7-yard net average and placed 23 of his 76 punts inside the opposing 20-yard line. The Redskins were 20th in net punting average. "We have to be in the top 10," Smith said. "Our (second-ranked) coverage is outstanding, but we need to punt the ball a little better. I'm anxious to see where we can bring Derrick to now that we've had him a whole year." Frost hopes that punting only about half as much as usual during the offseason will make a difference. "I'm trying to focus more this year on quality reps," Frost said. "The two years I've played, I've definitely gotten worn down late in the season."
--S Sean Taylor's legal woes aren't finished despite his guilty pleas to two misdemeanors last month stemming from a June 1, 2005 incident in Miami. He has been sued by a man who said that the free safety brandished a gun and repeatedly hit him during the altercation. Ryan Hill is seeking $15,000 in damages for medical expenses and lost wages he incurred because of the fight. Hill alleges that Taylor, who had gone in search of his missing all-terrain vehicles, punched him several times and called him a thief. Hill also claims Taylor returned and pointed an assault rifle at him. Taylor's attorney, Richard Sharpstein, called the lawsuit "useless" and "ridiculous."
