Washington Redskins: KR Chad Morton tested his sprained ankle during Thursday's practice and felt it's healed sufficiently enough for him to take the field Sunday in Carolina. "It was pretty good," Morton told the Washington Post. "It was a little sore but I was able to run around a little bit." Morton injured the ankle against the Dallas Cowboys and missed last week's game. And WR Patrick Johnson has been the primary kick returner. But on his seven kickoff returns since taking over for Morton, he's averaged a yard less per return, and a full two yards less per return on punts. Coach Steve Spurrier said he's hopeful of having Morton back against the Panthers. "Chad was running around pretty well," Spurrier said. "He's got a good chance to make it."
