Redskins | Running High On Players, But Low On Numbers

Mark Zuckerman, of the Washington Times, reports with 85 players scheduled to participate at this weekend's minicamp, the Washington Redskins have run out of available uniform numbers. On Thursday, April 29, Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs suggested he may call some of the team's franchise legends to seek permission to reinstate numbers that have been unofficially retired over the years. "It's become a problem," Gibbs said. "I think what I'm going to do is consult some of those guys whose numbers haven't been used, see what their opinion is. ... Obviously, you don't want to do something that hurts somebody's feelings." One problem is with the 80s, where every number but former Redskins WR Art Monk's 81 has been issued, which left Redskins WR James Thrash was not assigned a number as of Thursday.
