David Elfin, of the Washington Times, reports the Washington Redskins are about to release DT Brandon Noble. He missed all of last season because of knee surgeries and a resulting staph infection. He contracted another post-surgical infection in January.

While Noble would like a future in football via radio or coaching, for now, "my focus is on getting healthy."

Redskins | Noble dealing with another infection in his knee

Tue, 17 Jan 2006 06:35:51 -0800

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.

Casey Husband, of Redskins.com, reports Washington Redskins DT Brandon Noble (knee), on the Injured Reserve list with a knee injury, will now be a part-time helper on the team's coaching staff. "He would work with (defensive coordinator-defensive line coach) Greg Blache, do a lot of coaching stuff for us, and stay with the team," head coach Joe Gibbs said. "He's a very important person for us. I think he'll add a lot. He's actually thinking about coaching someday. It's a decision we didn't want to make because he's certainly a big part of the team, so we'll keep him in that capacity and hopefully get him healed up. At the end of the year, he'll make a decision about next year."
