Redskins Insider: August 3, 2008 - August 9, 2008

Alexander, Moore, Randle El and Mix Injuries Not Serious

In the early going, Lorenzo Alexander rolled his left ankle, but went back in the game. Kareem Moore suffered a shoulder stinger, but also went back into the game. Antwaan Randle El went off for X-rays of his forearm; those were negative. He was back on the sidelines with his...

TCCLs Are Back

TCCLs are back. If you don't know, you'd better ask somebody. The OGs on this blog will be more than happy to explain. In general, the more TCCLs, the better. [Quick Update: Redskins Unrestricted has been filed -- see below. TCCLs commence on the jump]...

What To Watch For

Gotta say I'm digging this new version of Loseable Type. It rocks. In fact, right now I'm going to play around with all the new bells and whistles and get a lil crazy. Oh yeah, I've got bold, italic and underscore ... But still no spellchecker. Hoorah. Jasno lives (actually...

Portis Set to Play Saturday

Clinton Portis is scheduled to make his preseason debut Saturday night against the Buffalo Bills at FedEx Field, Jason Reid and Jason La Canfora report. "Oh, yeah, Clinton is going to get out there a little," offensive coordinator Sherman Smith said yesterday after the Redskins' afternoon practice at Redskins Park....

QBs, Injuries, Schmitt, Favre -- We've Got It All

Jim Zorn said he might rotate his quarterbacks differently Saturday than he did in the preseason opener. Starter Jason Campbell will again open the game with the first team, but rookie Colt Brennan might go in next instead of back-up Todd Collins. Zorn wants to see Brennan operate in different...

Zorn's QB Plan; Strictly Unrestricted

After practice Jim Zorn talked a bit about his quarterback plan for Saturday and said that he might rotate Todd Collins and Colt Brennan after Jason Campbell gets his plays in. He said it would depend on the situation, but he'd like to get Brennan some two-minute work, since, he...

Of Blache, the O line and Injuries

Jasno checks in with a file -- he's going to love the new system! Defensive coordinator Greg Blache praised the work of several rookies in Sunday's preseason debut, but was also quick to point out their many flaws. Blache saw flashes of what he wanted to see from safety Chris...

Zorn Gives an Injury Report

We're told that blog migration is happening more quickly than anticipated, so we've got that going for us... Jason La Canfora has gotten some time alone with a source for an upcoming feature, so he sends along this quick update and will post more fully later: Jim Zorn said Chris...

Horton Has a Sick Day (Updated)

Morning practice has begun and rookie safety Chris Horton is the only player who is not on the field. Jason La Canfora reports he is sick and excused from practice. Otherwise, players were in full pads. LaRon Landry and Devin Thomas did light positional drills and worked on the side...

Thomas Will Focus on Better Conditioning

Devin Thomas said he believes he prepared well for this preseason, but admits that in the future he must do more to be ready for two-a-days. Thomas and fellow second-round pick Malcolm Kelly failed the team's conditioning test, and both are trying to overcome injuries suffered early in camp, with...

Zorn Jabs Rookie WRs; Wade, Heyer Out 2 Weeks

Jim Zorn said rookie WR Malcolm Kelly will remain in Florida today after having arthroscopic knee surgery Monday and admitted that the team's diagnosis that he will miss two weeks after getting 'scoped was "ambitious." Kelly and Devin Thomas, who remains out with a hamstring injury, were labeled as a...

Schweigert Sendoff and Practice Update

Stuart Schweigert was by no means a lock to make this football team, but I didn't think the safety would be cut before the second preseason game, either. Schweigert, who was released yesterday when the Redskins signed safety Patrick Ghee, had some limitations to his game, and being asked to...

Schweigert, Verdun-Wheeler Gone; Kelly's Surgery

The team has made a couple of moves, releasing safety Stuart Schweigert and linebacker Danny Verdun-Wheeler and signing safety Patrick Ghee and fullback-tight end Pete Schmitt. Rookie wide receiver Malcolm Kelly underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Monday to remove loose particles in his left knee. Kelly, who team sources expect to...

Blog to Undergo Renovation

It's time for one of those moments. You know the ones where your parents tell you that this is going to be good for you, but it's going to hurt like a somethingorother in the interim? There's no way to sugarcoat this: You will be unable to comment on Redskins...

Zorn's Take; Kelly Update

I've compiled some highlights from Jim Zorn's presser, and we're also looking into Malcolm Kelly's status. From what we're hearing, arthroscopic knee surgery is likely - which would put him out at least 2-3 weeks - but the team's medical staff and coaches are in meetings and we are awaiting...

Malcolm Kelly Might Get Scoped

Rookie WR Malcolm Kelly is in Birmingham being evaluated by Dr. James Andrews and may need to have arthroscopic knee surgery, Coach Jim Zorn said. Kelly had a hamstring injury and, in recovering from that, began to feel some stiffness in his knees. Zorn said Kelly was being evaluated while...

Waiting for Zorn, Injury Updates

It's a double dose of Jasons -- neither of whom picked anything up for me in the Hall of Fame gift shop. Jason Reid is Unrestricted (and loving it) and Jason La Canfora files this report: Sorry I couldn't get this up early - had a brutally late night and...

A Wise Guy in Canton

After Sunday night's Hall of Fame game, players have today off. Jim Zorn will meet with the media and there'll be any injury updates later. Until then, Mike Wise and Jonathan Forsythe have made a video of their little trip to Canton. (I'll bet they didn't even bring me a...

Brennan, Other Draft Picks Have Solid Debuts

Colt Brennan may be unorthodox, but this isn't a bad start at all. He's a project, but seems to be eating this up. A lot of the draft picks are playing well. Durant Brooks had a few nice punts - and one not-so-good. DE Rob Jackson had a sack (but...

Halftime Ramblings

Watching practice this week, I had a morbid thought that the player who seemed most likely to get hurt in this game was Todd Collins. He hasn't looked sharp, his mobility is not a strength, and the second-string offense line, I thought, was in for a long night. Turned out...

Meeks and Snyder; Who's Sitting (Updated)

The Redskins' owner just spent a good five minutes or so on the field with Colts defensive coordinator Ron Meeks, who was a finalist to replace Joe Gibbs as head coach and interviewed on two occasions. The men were smiling and laughing, and Snyder extended his hand for a hearty...

The Opener Brings Fun With Flip Cards

I know some of you are waiting breathlessly for the first depth charts of the summer, and even though these things don't carry much weight this time of year, I figured I'd pass them along. As a disclaimer, for instance LaRon Landry is listed as the starting strong safety, even...

Jonathan Forsythe, videographer extraordinaire, gives us a look back at the fans and the ceremony before the Redskins play the Colts in tonight's preseason opener in Canton. And here's more camerawork from John McDonnell and Preston Keres. Mike Wilbon and Mike Wise were the boots on the ground, taking in...
