Redskins Training Camp Photo Gallery – Day 2 PM Practice

Redskins training camp wasn’t quiet for long. On the second day, the team signed troubled linebacker Junior Galette while it was announced that cornerback Bashaud Breeland was suspended one game for his citation of marijuana possession during last year’s training camp.

During practice Breeland suffered an apparent leg injury and was carted off the field. He is expected to miss several weeks.

Redskins Pros and Cons: Week 12

By Jake Russell

The more things change for the Washington Redskins, the more they stay the same.

After the Redskins’ opening offensive resulted in a three-and-out, their defense immediately allowed a quick five-play, 59-yard drive by the San Francisco 49ers. In the first four minutes of the game, a blowout appeared imminent.

However, the offense tied the game at seven in the second quarter and the defense only allowed 10 points the rest of the game. The problem was offense, which could only generate two field goals after Alfred Morris’ one-yard touchdown run.

After a stellar defensive performance, the Redskins had two opportunities to win in the final minutes of the game but couldn’t come through. The end result? A 17-13 loss and their second 3-8 record in as many seasons.

The storyline this week will continue to be Robert Griffin III and his inability to come through in the clutch like he did in his rookie season.

Redskins Pros and Cons: Week 8

They weren’t supposed to win. No chance. No way. Not on primetime.

The Dallas Cowboys were fresh off their sixth straight win and two weeks removed from upsetting the reigning Super Bowl Champions on the road.

Meanwhile the Redskins barely slid by the hapless Tennessee Titans after turning to third string quarterback Colt McCoy.

Oh yeah, and the Redskins are bad during primetime games. Like coming into the game 3-17 in primetime games since 2008 bad.

But as the saying goes, that’s why you play the game. Turns out the Redskins had some fight left in them and managed to pull within three games of the NFC East lead, a feat that didn’t seem likely not too long ago.

Under the direction of McCoy, a 20-17 overtime victory was in order.
