WASHINGTON (AP) -Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor, a no-show for the first spring practices last week, participated in the team's workout Tuesday.
Taylor practiced with the team and attended meetings, which were not mandatory. He has routinely skipped voluntary practices in the past, although he participated in most of the Redskins' offseason program last year. Coach Joe Gibbs said last week he had not been in contact with Taylor and was disappointed his starting strong safety was not in attendance.
``Every year I'm trying to show up here more and more,'' Taylor said. ``It helps the team. The last couple of years I've been kind of busy with certain issues. I finally have those in the past and I'm working on getting ahead.''
Taylor and cornerback Shawn Springs were the only two players who missed the Redskins' first three practices of the spring, which began May 8. Springs was not present for Tuesday's workout.
