Redskins Insider: July 29, 2007 - August 4, 2007

Football Stuff

I feel really weird even writing this in light of the tragedy with Ahamad's daughter, but I suppose Ahmad would want us to solider on. I can't get his loss out of my mind. Lauren and I are sick about it. It's such a sad, horrible thing. So with a...

A Friend In Need

Ahmad, a regular on the blog who goes by 4th floor, and one of many of us with young families, just sent me an email to inform us that his daughter has passed away. She was just 19-months old and I can only imagine what Ahmad and his family are...

Afternoon Update

Practice lasted just over an hour and it was flippin hot out there. All in all, though, several veterans have said privately that while the pace of camp is higher than in some years past here, it hasn't been anything remotely Marty-like and that overall the feel of things has...

It's Getting Hot Out Here, So ...

With the weather pounding us all, the Skins announced that the 4pm practice is expected to conclude by 5:20, so if you' re heading out here to watch, better get here now....

Rule Changes And Points Of Emphasis

A group of NFL officials made the annual presentation on rules changes to the media schlubs. I'll tell you what, we rag on these guys all the time, but they know their stuff. It's always kind of fun to spend like 15 minutes thinking of the most esoteric question possible...

Check This Crazy Stuff Out

Just saw this video of Jason Campbell. Pretty wild stuff. From what I am told, he actually did this on the second take. I've been pretty swamped, so if you guys have already been chatting about this all week, and I am the last one to the party, sorry. But...

Fear The Reaper, Just Not Today

Sean Taylor isn't talking today. The 1:15 tentative presser is off. Maybe tomorrow. We shall see. Whenever he does speak to us, assuming he does, we, I mean I, will write about it....

CP Update (and other injuries, too)

Portis will be working on his conditioning and strengthening the area around his swollen right knee for the time being. Would be very surprising if he were to practice anytime before next Monday and Bubba Tyer, director of sports medicine, laughed when someone suggested Clinton might participate in the scrimmage...

Portis's Tendinitis Returns

Coach Joe says that Clinton was held out of practice because his knee tendinitis flared back up. He says the team will monitor it closely - of course - and is being extra careful. The problem was aggravated at Monday's practice, and with two sessions Wednesday I would be surprised...

Report from the Field

Jason phones this in: It's early in practice, but at the moment Stephon Heyer, an undrafted lineman out of Maryland, is at left tackle with the first-team offensive line and Todd Wade is at left guard. Randy Thomas is in full pads and is going full speed. That's it for...

Chris Samuels - Half Empy or Half Full?

So there's a coupla a way we can look at this injury. A starter getting hurt at a position as important as left tackle is never a good thing, but let's delve a little deeper. First of all, I heard today that, after reading the MRI and examining the knee,...

Freddy Signs With Benfica (Sorry, I Had Nowhere Else To Put This)

Will put a big blog on Samuels up in a second but just got word from Portgual a minute ago that my boy Freddy Adu signed his five-year deal with Benfica, one of soccer's most stories clubs. Freddy will fly back to DC Wednesday, pack some stuff and fly to...

Samuels Out A Month Or So

According to the Skins, hot off the email press: An MRI taken on Redskins offensive tackle Chris Samuels tonight revealed an isolated grade 2 sprain of his right MCL. The injury is expected to keep Samuels out for up to four weeks. So we'll see if Fabini or Wade take...

Waiting For Bubba

Still no word on Chris Samuels. The team sez it could be until 11 pm before they know the results of the MRI, and if it's any later than that they will just get the info on Tuesday. I'll post something as soon as I hear it, and thanks for...

Samuels Update (if you can call it that)

Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels had to be carted off the field late in this afternoon's practice with what the team hopes is a mild MCL sprain. Samuels tangled amid a gaggle of bodies and was on the ground for several minutes before being helped to the sidelines....

Afternoon Update

Jason just phoned this in from the afternoon practice. Both practices today were closed to the public. The Redskins have cut reserve kicker Tyler Fredrickson, which means that Shaun Suisham and Derrick Frost are the only two kicker-types in camp. They signed tight end Jake Nordin from Northern Illinios. Mike...

Landry Update And Other Stuff

Okay, Landry's 5 year deal includes $17.5 million guaranteed and could be worth as much as $41.5 million over the duration of the deal, according to my peeps in the know. He is flying to DC now and will meet his agent, Joel Segal, here this afternoon. The contract is...

Landry Agrred To Terms

First round pick LaRon Landry agreed to terms on a 5 year contract around 1 am and is expeted here by the second practice today. I finally went to bed around 12:30 knowing I had to be out of the house at 7 to get to practice this morning, otherwise...

Run To The Hills - Fan Appreciation Day Is Off

Well, the weather out here at The Park is going bonkers- storms, lightning, bad scene all around. Cheerleaders huddled in the doorway next to the media room here, scrambling to run out to their cars in the rain, with the plastered on make-up going all over the place. The...
