Special teams coach Danny Smith helped the Redskins avoid one more gaffe on Sunday when he alerted Zorn not to call time out before the play clock ran down with Washington protecting a lead late in the game.
Zorn welcomed the help and did not feel as if Smith had showed him up.
"We're all in it together," Zorn said. "He was helping the situation out. He wasn't hurting it. I wasn't hurt by him doing what he did."
Washington led 9-7 in the final three minutes and faced third and 3 from the St. Louis 4 when Zorn motioned for a time out. Smith, however, sprinted down the sideline screaming at Zorn not to call it so soon.
"From my vantage point there were four or five guys in front of the 25-second clock," Zorn said. "He had looked at the other clock [on the opposite end of the field. I couldn't hear him. You know how he gets going. 'Z-MAN!!!!' He just kind of got fired up about it."
Quarterback Jason Campbell suffered a sprained foot against the Rams. Zorn said Campbell could be limited in practice this week, but he expects Campbell to be ready for Sunday's game at Detroit.
