RICHMOND—Here’s what I’ll be looking at during today’s Redskins practice:

—What will RG3 do? Mike Shanahan said after Thursday’s game that there was no timetable for getting Robert Griffin III some snaps in 11 on 11 drills. While that could mean that he will be behind center in full team drills at any time, we’re not looking for it today. But will he do anything that he hasn’t done before or perhaps more reps in seven on seven?

—What about the injuries? I’ll consider it a good sign if Donte Stallworth practices and Phillip Thomas is present for practice in a walking boot. That would mean that the only serious injury the team suffered in their preseason opener was Jeremy Kimbrough’s separated shoulder. That’s not good for him, of course, but any time you can check a preseason game off the list with that being your only serious injury that’s a plus. One down, three to go.

—How will Aldrick Robinson respond to an inconsistent game on Thursday? Will he focus on fundamentals like he has all during training camp, looking the ball into his hands? Or will his drop on Thursday play with his head and cause him to lose some confidence? I’ll be looking for the same things from Lance Lewis. He had a nice catch and run for a TD that was called back for an illegal formation penalty but he also fumbled the ball short of the goal line when he had another chance to score.
