The Washington Redskins returned to work on Monday with two goals in mind: trim their roster and prepare for the preseason finale.
Ashburn, VA-Graham Gano’s job is safe, for now, as the Redskins had to cut their 90-man roster to 75 today and Neil Rackers, who was battling with Gano for the starting kickers job, was cut.
Of the 90 players on the Redskins preseason roster, a whopping 9 have close ties to the Washington area.
Barring any setbacks, Tim Hightower will make his 2012 debut Saturday night against the Indianapolis Colts.
Mike Shanahan has a gut feeling Roy Helu won’t play Saturday against the Chicago Bears. The second-year Washington Redskins running back has been slowed by Achilles tendonitis of late.
The questions about the offensive line remain the same for Saturday as Trent Williams, Chris Chester and Maurice Hurt all practiced, but didn’t go the entire practice.
Well everyone can breath a long-awaited sigh of relief. Robert Griffin III has his first preseason game under his belt and he didn’t: fumble, throw an interception, get hurt, or do anything else that could potentially stunt a rookie quarterback’s long-term growth if absorbed in just the wrong way. Hey, he even threw a touchdown.
Listen here to what Mike Shanahan, Robert Griffin III and others had to say following the Redskins 7-6 win in their first preseason game of the season.
Ashburn, VA-The Washington Redskins held their sixth walk-through of training camp this morning in the bubble and will have their sixth full practice this afternoon in front of the fans.
Ashburn, VA-RG3 looked sharp today as the Redskins held their second training camp practice this afternoon in a cool 88 degrees compared to almost 100 yesterday.
