Dexter Manley of the Washington Redskins was "excused" from training camp by NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle after the two met Friday to discuss what the league described as a "personal matter."

Earlier this week, the Washington Post reported that traces of a "minor" substance had been found in Manley's urine during a physical examination. Manley underwent rehabilitation for an alcohol problem in 1987.Manley and his attorney, Bob Woolf, met with Rozelle for an hour Friday. It was the second discussion with Rozelle this year for Manley, who had been due to report to the Redskins' training camp in Carlisle, Pa. on Saturday.
