Biggs: Samuels not ready to officially retire yet

The Washington Redskins have slammed the brakes on the Chris Samuels will retire chatter, but it’s still a good bet that the perennial Pro Bowl performer will walk away from the game at the end of the season because of concerns about a neck injury.

For now, the 32-year-old Samuels will sit out the remainder of the season before making a decision in several months.

“I will continue to seek medical advice. I hope to see where I am physically over the next couple months,” Samuels said in a statement released by the team. “At this time, I have not made a decision, but I love playing for the Redskins and hope to be back.”

Samuels traveled to California to visit with noted spine and back specialist Dr. Robert Watkins.

He is the second starting lineman to be lost for the season as veteran right guard Randy Thomas already went down. Washington has serious issues moving forward, and the Redskins signed veteran Levi Jones as a stop-gap measure earlier this week, a move that would have made sense before the start of the season considering the depth issues the club had.
