Rogers and Big Al ready for the Giants

Redskins cornerback Carlos Rogers and defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth appeared to be at full strength in Tuesday's workout and should be ready for the Giants on Sunday, according to Matt Terl's Redskins Blog. He also had some news about Andre' Woodson's first practice with the team. Here's how Zorn described the former Giants reserve quarterback:
"We like his size, and I think he has a good presence," Zorn said. "He has escape ability, which I saw as I watched him. It is necessary for this offense. I was impressed with his deep ball. We just have to work on some intermediate things and we will be all right."
When I spoke with a high-level Redskins executive via text Tuesday, he insisted that Woodson is a player the club is interested in for the long haul. Giants coach Tom Coughlin strongly suggested Monday that Woodson was signed to the Skins' practice squad in preparation for Sunday's game.
"No, he will be around to develop," the executive told me. "He's got size and potential."
But do we think the Redskins have spent significant time picking Woodson's brain regarding the Giants' offense? Absolutely.
