Redskins | Noble dealing with another infection in his knee

The Washington Post reports Washington Redskins DL Brandon Noble (knee) missed the entire 2005 season with a knee injury. Now, he is trying to recover from an infection that has recurred in his surgically repaired knee. He is back on crutches after another surgery and is back on a regimen of antibiotics. Noble is all but certain his playing career is over, and is trying to avoid more surgery after this latest infection is treated. Noble contracted a methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection from having his knee drained repeatedly, and fears he may have another now. The Redskins approached Noble about a job in scouting or coaching when he retires, but Noble said he might need a respite from football before pursuing his interest in coaching.
