Redskins Insider: August 22, 2010 - August 28, 2010

Larry Johnson hits his groove

It was sort of like old times for Larry Johnson. There he was again, late in the fourth quarter of another undecided game with the football in his hands and eager to pound the defense. The Kansas City Chiefs used to rely on the powerful runner to help control...

Devin Thomas gets his chance "to shine" next week

The Washington Redskins spread the ball around Friday night against the Jets; 12 different players caught passes. One name noticeably absent from the stat sheet, though, was third-year receiver Devin Thomas. In fact, Thomas, thought to have a shot at starting opposite Santana Moss not long ago, didn't even enter...

Rex Grossman feeling comfortable in Redskins offense

As you've no doubt heard by now, in the past six years, quarterback Donovan McNabb has played all 16 games in just one season. It's not a stretch to foresee a time this season that the Redskins will have to call on their No. 2 quarterback to lead the huddle....

Signs of a thaw between Haynesworth, Shanahan

One week ago, Albert Haynesworth didn't try to hide displeasure with Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan, and it appeared the bad feelings between the two had escalated to unmanageable levels.
