Redskins place Samuels on IR

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

We knew it was coming, but the Redskins officially placed Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels on injured reserve Saturday. There has been at least one report indicating that Samuels' neck injury will force him into retirement, but he says that's a decision he hasn't made.

Samuels already knew he had stenosis, but an injury Oct. 11 against the Panthers knocked him out for the season. I'd be surprised if Samuels plays again, but he will understandably seek a lot of different opinions before making a decision.

OK, I'm off to Philly to cover Giants- Eagles. Let's talk soon.
