Redskins Insider: August 5, 2007 - August 11, 2007

Welcome To Nashville

Hey there, hope all is well. Clinton Portis has yet to see Dr. James Andrews down here. I am told it could happen during the game or even at halftime. Again, I don't think they will say anything new about the knee and will likely reiterate the feeling that the...

Virtual Tailgater

Finally, a real game, even if it's only preseason real. I figured we'd need a new thread until Jasno gets settled at the game, so we might as well start discussing what we hope to see now. Obviously, we'll all be paying close attention to JC and the offense and...

Salave'a Update

Big Joe had a mild hamstring strain, but like Thrash is expected to play Saturday. So for guys who will be out for the exhibition, I'd say: Portis, Samuels, Lloyd, Butler, Ecker, Manupuna will probably be on the sidelines....

Post-Practice Update

Portis says he is still unsure of when he will practice next. Said his knee still "flares up" when he cuts and turns, but is repsonding well to new stretching exercises, and the bulk of his treatment is now more based around stretching, rather than weight work like last week,...

Hey there, fire away with any questions you have. Not much going on at The Park. Got a chance to sneak in a trip to the mall with Chloe to get an anniversary present for Lauren - five years of bliss - and that's about it. Will post anything of...

Sean Taylor Is Running Right Now

Just spoke with Jason, who's on the practice field, about rumors that Sean Taylor hurt his knee, was carted off, ambulanced to a hospital for an MRI. "I'm watching him run right now," Jasno said. Trust us, we'll report news to you when it happens....

Better Late Than Never - 75th Anniversary Stuff

Hey there, been a long day and practice is finally going to start here in a little while so I gotta run. Got a lot of emails about the Skins 75th Anniversary and, yes, like some other teams, they will be wearing a throwback jersey at some point his season....

Loose Ends

Turns out DE Bryant Shaw has cramps, as does WR Jason McAddley. Ladell told me his neck got much looser as the day went on and he felt better in the afternoon practice. Brandon Lloyd was back for the afternoon practice from shin splints. TE Eric Edwards was back and...

Afternoon Update

The Redskins have cut offensive lineman Will Whittiker and have signed running back Dee Brown, who played last year in Kansas City....

Short Afternoon Practice/D-Mac Update

Skins cutting down from 2 hours to 1 hour this afternoon, so they'll be on the field from 4-5. The heat, coupled with the mounting bumps and bruises, led to the cutback. Now, in far more interesting news, got an email from Lance with an update on none other than...

More Ouchies - Who's Going To Block?

Stephon Heyer was lumbering around more so than usual out there, and the starting left tackle didn't do a whole lot during team drills. He says his knee is fine - a big problem in college - but his left hamstring is strained and he wants to be careful leading...

As One Blog Favorite Departs ... Another Resurfaces

So, Casey Bramlet is gone but not forgotten (Europa, RIP), but another of our favorite Europa vets is back in the NFL. Remember Philippe Gardent, the French linebacker (and by French linebacker, I mean exactly that - dude played his college ball at NSC Marseille) who was on the practice...

Injury Update (Bubba Speaks)

Whitticker has what appears to be a high ankle sprain, and is in crutches with a boot on his right ankle as we speak. It looks like a longp-term injury and he will get an MRI on Tuesday. Will says he can feel the pain all the way up his...

Heyer Update/ Waiting For Bubba/Stuff

First some news - Coach Joe says it looks like Stephon Heyer will be the starting left tackle Saturday at the Titans after his strong work in the scrimmage. Clinton Portis was not in pads and that's a day-to-day process getting him back from the knee tendinitis. The wide receiver...

Correction

Hey there, just wanted to clear something up I screwed up before. I was thining the Skins would use an extra roster spot from Bramlet's release to add a kicker or punter ... and that is most certainly something they would consider doing. Problem is, I forgot that since Bramlet...

Heyer Learning

The Redskins face an interesting week of decisions at left tackle with star Chris Samuels out. Stephon Heyer fared well over the weekend in Baltimore, but then again it was a controlled scrimmage, and QB Jason Campbell never took part in 11-on-11 drills, which means Heyer never had to...

Like NFL Europa, Bramlet's Out

Jason called in to say that the Redskins have said so long to Casey Bramlet. His best guest is that they'll use the roster spot for a kicker or punter, maybe even bringing in someone in time for today's practice. So if you were going to Redskins Park today to...

Haiku Man Is Back

Not much intro needed here. The Man Is Back. Here's his guest blog: I challenge the Peanut Gallery to a Haiku-a-thon. Subject: A Pre-Season Issue Facing the Redskins. If you want to remind RI of the format, it is 5-7-5 for a total of 17 syllables -- bonus points if...
