About Jason Campbell

"Jason looks phenomenal." ~~ Mike Sellers

"You can tell the growth and maturity he's had." ~~ Clinton Portis

Both were speaking of the off-season development of Jason Campbell during an interview shown this morning on Comcast Sportsnet.

Joe Gibbs commented about Campbell in today's story at

"He's worked extremely hard, and I think it's made a difference. The players noticed it, and all of the coaches noticed it. Generally you don't do real hard things unless you've had great preparation. Based on the first three days [of OTAs], I'd say it [Campbell's level of preparation] shows."

Gibbs said he was "disappointed" that Shawn Springs and Sean Taylor are "no shows" at the Organized Team Activities. Veterans are not required to attend. "My focus is on the guys who are here," added Gibbs.

The OTAs run weekly Tuesday through Thursday in a run up the the full team mini-camp starting June 15. Several players are attending, but sat out the activities.

Defensive end Phillip Daniels had surgery on his wrist and ankle, linebacker Marcus Washington had hip surgery and quarterback Mark Brunell and running back Clinton Portis both had shoulder surgery.

Santana Moss sustained a strained groin injury during practice on Wednesday, so he was held out of Thursday's practice.

Fullback Nehemiah Broughton suffered a knee ligament injury during an OTA practice this week and could be placed on the injured reserve list.
