Posted July 27, 2012 on AP on Fox
After being cut by two teams, Kory Lichtensteiger had found a home with the Washington Redskins in his third NFL season, only to see his career turn again with a major knee injury last October. As training camp opens, Lichtensteiger is solidly back in his old spot between left tackle Trent Williams and center Will Montgomery. The 27-year-old Bowling Green product acknowledges he was worried that he'd never feel the same, even during spring workouts seven months after he tore his ACL, MCL and meniscus. Two months further down the road the knee brace is gone and Lichtensteiger feels confident about the future. That's good news for the Redskins, who went 2-10 after the left guard was lost for the rest of the 2011 season.

Ex-NFL QB Colt Brennan arrested for DUI and drug possession

What is disturbing about this is Colt Brennan survived a near fatal car accident not to long ago, so more than anyone he should know the dangerous of driving while impaired. Remember these pictures? Colt Brennan — a 2007 Heisman Trophy finalist — was arrested for DUI in Hawaii this morning … and cops say drugs were involved. The former University of Hawaii star quarterback...

Washington Redskins' Friday Practice; Notes and a New Tradition

Here's we learned from the Washington Redskins' second day of open practices: The Skins are going to move receivers around the "depth chart," probably often. Yesterday, Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan were the starting two. Today, Leonard Hankerson was playing opposite Garcon, as the starting duo. Those two have made the most plays so far but the Redskins will...

Redskins claim Dezmon Briscoe off waivers

Getty Images According to Adam Caplan of, the Washington Redskins claimed former Buccaneers wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe off waivers on Friday, just a day after he was released by Tampa Bay. I really like this move by the Redskins.  They have some talent at the receiver position, but adding a player like Briscoe won’t hurt them at all.

RG3 carries helmets after Redskins practice (Video)

Robert Griffin III may be the Redskins’ franchise quarterback and a player they traded many draft picks to obtain, but he’s not above participating in some traditional rookie hazing. The former Heisman Trophy winner was filmed by CSN Washington carrying the helmets of his teammates after Redskins practice on Thursday. Some players around the league (and even his teammates) are...

Washington Redskins training camp thus far....

Well how do my (our) skins look.  Are you at training camp with them?  I didn't realize you were a celebrity thanks for responding to my emails.~ Tim McMurrinA. You so funny. I'm not a celebrity. They just call me RH2. We do not have press passes; thus, we are not journalists. We are smart about football, though. I am a 50-year fan who has seen it all and recognizes stuff...

RG3 carries helmets for Redskin veteran teammates (Video)

Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, a.k.a. RG3, carried the helmets of some of his veteran teammates after Thursday's practice. Just because Griffin is a former Heisman Trophy winner and a multi-millionaire doesn't mean he is exempt from rookie "hazing". However, this is a time-honored tradition, and RG3 was a good sport about it. ...

Redskins interest in Ryan Grant raise concerns about backfield

We are putting two plus two together and probably reaching five, but hey, that’s what bloggers do.  The Insider reported yesterday Washington's concern about the health of RBs Tim Hightower and Roy Helu. Today, picked up on a tweet by Jason LaCanfora that the Redskins are thinking about adding Cedric Benson or Ryan Grant to the roster. Few things before i leave...

Reasons For Optimism at Redskins Training Camp

  Yesterday, Bill Thompson wrote a piece on the question marks surrounding Redskins training camp and how there are a lot of unproven positions and reasons for concern when looking over the entire Skins roster. While I don’t fall in to the category of the delusional Redskins fans who always say we are going to win the Super Bowl in the offseason, I do consider myself a homer and...

Redskins To Add To Crowded Backfield By Signing Cedric Benson Or Ryan Grant?

Nobody ever said that Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan was on the Christmas card list of fantasy football owners. Never has a coach changed his mind and backtracked on who his starting running back is than Shanahan, causing many to actually have a name for his actions. Shanahanigans. Well, the frustrating coach is at it again. The Redskins have a solid running back in Tim...

Here’s a picture of Magic Johnson, Jerry Jones and Daniel Snyder on a boat, sans shoes

They’ve also never been in my kitchen. Magic Johnson uploaded this photo of himself with two of the more polarizing owners in the NFL to his Twitter account.  I’ve yet to figure out the context of the pic, or even whose boat this might be on.  All I know is, Magic Johnson seems like a genuinely nice guy, Jerry Jones is slowly morphing into a beautiful, elderly Dutch woman,...
