Redskins Insider: June 10, 2007 - June 16, 2007

Mini Camp Odds and Ends

Shawn Springs was excused from practice today. He was up all night with his newborn son, who is in the hospital with jaundice, and spoke to Coach Joe in the AM. Not sure if he will be out for tomorrow. LaRon "The Human Target" Landry remains out with the bruised...

Cooley's Shorts Get a Thumbs Up

Chris Cooley (Captain Chaos) is intent on wearing his groin-huggingly skimpy spandex shorts at offseason practices. By now I assume we all have seen the photographic evidence of this phenomenon. I like hairbands as much as Cooley, but never thought to make the ultimate homage to them at my place...

The Red Snapper Has A New Number

Long snapper Ethan Albright hasn't missed a game in 10 years and hasn't blown a snap in his NFL career. So when I noticed that he's no longer wearing No, 71 this season - he's donning 67 now - I did a double take. Having spendt my adult life essentially...

My Bad - Correcting a Mistake

I wrote earlier that Rocky McIntosh's wife had a girl - well, I got that 100 percent wrong. I had heard she was exepcting a girl for a while, so that's what I assumed she had, and, like in that great scene in the first Bad News Bears movie, we...

Final Updates on Day 1 of Mini Camp

Okay, Shawn's baby had to be re-admitted for jaundice, which is pretty common. So things look pretty good in that regard and after a day or two of treatment - I know with Chloe we just had to expose here to light, etc., when she was jaundice - everything should...

Shawn Springs Excued Again (Let's Keep Our Fingers Crossed For Him)

Shawn Springs left practice about 20 minutes in, and had to return to the hospital. He chatted briefly with Coach Joe before sprinting off the field and leaving. His wife gave birth to a baby boy this week, but something came up back at the hospital. Coach Joe will update...

LaRon Landry's Groin Contusion (seriously)

The Skins top draft pick, and the sixth overall pick in the draft, safety LaRon Landry, is not practicing today, and probably will miss the entire weekend mini camp, Bubba Tyer said. Landry took a shot to the groin this week and was walking pretty gingerly. One look at him...

Gary Fitzgerald Is Good People

Sorry I am late getting to this - Thursday was far too eventful for me on the homefront - but I just wanted to say that I don't think Gary stole my stupid list of plotlines. I am sure it was a coincidence and he and I will have a...

Gimme Feedback (aka, please help me with my homework)

I have a little chart to do to accompany a story I am working on fro Friday's paper, and wanted to see what you guys thought. Cindy and the powers that be want me to do a little something on the five story lines to watch as we head into...

Randy Thomas Knee Surgery

Forgot to post this sooner (Howard is doing the small story on it for the actual paper, so it slipped my mind). Anway, guard Randy Thomas had what the team is calling a minor scope done on his right knee today and is expected back for the start of training...

School's Out

Last week Coach Joe spared the boys the final two days of OTA practices - set for Tues. and Wed. of this week - and opted to give them walkthroughs instead. Well, today he showed ever more clemency. The players reported this morning for meetings and work, and were promptly...

Micah Doughty Update

Reed Doughty's rookie year was one of life-changing events. The Doughty's firstborn, Micah, came six weeks premature on Aug. 30, and suffered serious kidney problems. He will need a transplant at some point and the family continues to prepare for that day. Finally caught up with Reed in the parking...

Shawn Springs To Speak Wednesday (Slow news day)

So Shawn skipped out of The Park through the side door to go and see his wife at the hospital. Like we said, she delivered a baby boy. Shawn will be back for meetings tomorrow and will speak to the media then. That's it. Pretty lame eh? Wish I had...

Shawn Springs Is Back

Everyone's favorite corner is back at Redskins Park for today's meetings and walkthroughs, and will be around from here on out. I have heard his wife had a baby - they were expecting a boy - and all is well. Shawn needed some time to be with her last week,...

Guest Blog - Chris W

Got another submission for a guest blog, so hope you guys enjoy it. I'll be out at the Park today for the walkthroughs - no more OTAs - and will post some stuff later, assuming anything actually happens out here. Well, either way, I'll come up with something. Okay, the...

From a Rocky Who Is Not Italian, To An Italian Ending That Was Too Rocky For My Taste

Figured that with OTAs essentially over now and not much brewing at The Park until the weekend mini camp, we'd spend the week discussing some of the key players for the upcoming season, one day at a time. We kind of got started last week on the punters and kickers,...
