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 continue to switch things around; probably even after the season starts.

The new celebration in Redskins Park is simple, and I like it; give the ball to the crowd. Pierre caught a tough pass early on, and just like yesterday, chucked the ball into the fans section. Aldrick Robinson also threw one out after his big score to end the practice.

It's still really hard to gauge the offensive line. Kory Lichtenstieger appears to be moving fine and Trent Williams looks ready. The big question is still right tackle, but many have blown the problem out of proportion. Right now, the defensive front five is getting the better of the offensive linemen. However, this defense should do that to most teams in the NFL. I am not concerned about the line, for now.

There was an interesting kicker moment–if there is such a thing–today. After four or five kicks, from both Graham Gano and Neil Rackers, the whole team crowed around, as they both attempted 48 yarders. We heard one coach say, "do whatever you want, but don't touch the ball." There were players waving their hands in front of the kicker. Some were yelling. It was a cool test. Both kickers missed and made one of two attempts.

The battle between the kickers didn't seem all that friendly either. Gano silently refused to watch when it was Rackers turn and neither said a word to the other before or after a kick.

Jarvis Jenkins, Kory Lichtenstieger, Leonard Hankerson, Josh Morgan, Chris Cooley, Tim Hightower and Jamal Brown were injury concerns entering training camp yesterday. After the first two days, everybody looks healthy but Hightower and Brown. Tim has at least practiced. Jamal could be out for a while (MRI Tuesday).

Robert Griffin III had a better day today. I never witnessed a slump in his play and he definitely threw better on the run. The one thing that obvious; he doesn't let bad throws get to him. He just walks over to little Shanahan and talks about the play; something he does after every play so far. It looks like he has a hard time feeling pressure right now; however, he was able to escape the pocket a few times today and turn it into a positive play.

We all know that Fred Davis is going to be the featured tight end. But that hasn't stopped Chris Cooley and Niles Paul from getting their fair share of catches. Niles had a great day, both blocking and receiving. You can tell that the coaching staff is finding ways to give him favorable blocking assignments (almost exclusively against linebackers and not normally head-on).

It was a much nicer day out, which I'm sure the players enjoyed as much as we did. I won't be at camp tomorrow, but I'll be back soon enough! If you have any questions on the first two day, ask us on Twitter at @Redskins_101!
