George Rogers rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown, but came away impressed with his former teammates, the New Orleans Saints. The Washington Redskins remained undefeated, but Rogers said there was nothing easy about their 14-6 victory over the Saints Sunday in the Superdome. "Any time you play a team like the Saints, you know you're going to come down here and they're going to play their hardest to beat you," Rogers said. "It seemed like their defense was really ready to play."

Gibbs made the move after third-stringer Mark Rypien was put on injured reserve with a bone chip in his knee.

"If it ain't one thing, it's another.
