Some quick Redskins nuggets to get your Friday morning going.--Fred Davis is in a strange legal dispute with a woman whose business card says she is a celebrity broker. The Washingtonian is reporting that Davis is representing himself as the woman, 33-year-old Makini Chaka, is trying to get a temporary restraining order and wants damage due to Davis a;lskdjf malicious, willful and intentional assault, injurious falsehood and civil conspiracy.Go give the bizarre story a read.--The NFL announced that TV doubleheader games will started at 4:25 instead of 4:15 in order to prevent overlap with earlier games. Since I dont have to deal with deadlines like my print brethren do Im fine with the change. It will mean that when CBS has the doubleheader game, 60 Minutes frequently will start a full 60 minutes late.--Today The 53 is about quarterbacks. I suppose I should try to manufacture some suspense here but its hard to see them going with anything other than the obvious three. Give it a look this afternoon anyway.--The youngest Redskin is Richard Crawford, who will turn 22 on August 1. The oldest, by a comfortable margin, is Sav Rocca. He is 38 years and seven months old, about a year and a half older than London Fletcher, who turned 37 last month.Also, try to stay cool and hydrated today, 10 runs not enough for the Nats and the Wizards draft Bradley Beal to team with John Wall in the backcourt.Days until: Rookies report 17; training camp 27; preseason opener @ Bills 41; Redskins @ Saints 72; home opener vs. Bengals 86
Ryan Kerrigan, Jordan Reed and Brandon Scherff will skip next week's Pro Bowl in Orlando a team spokesman confirmed to CSN. All three players dealt with injuries late in the season, most notably Reed, and playing in the exhibition game is not in the cards. Trent Williams, however, is still slated to play in the game.
Reed suffered a separated shoulder on Thanksgiving playing against the Dallas Cowboys. For the rest of the season, Reed played through significant pain and his production dipped.
Kerrigan played much of the season with an injured elbow and hurt his finger in the final game against the Giants. Scherff played with ankle pain and was listed on the injury report much of the season's final four games.
For Reed and Scherff, this year marked their first Pro Bowl. The recognition was deserved for both players, and shows that the guard and tight end are gaining national spotlight for their play.
Kerrigan played in the Pro Bowl following the 2012 season. He finished this year with 11 sacks, 2.5 short os his career high 13.5 in 2014.

When longtime Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo lost his starting job to rookie Dak Prescott, there was general consensus that Prescott won the job fair and square when Romo got injured.
Romo himself said as much. But there are still people around the NFL who feel Dallas didn't do right by their 10-year starter.
As Romo was leaving the field after the Cowboys lost to the Packers in the playoffs, Pepper Burruss, Green Bay's director of sports medicine, approached him. A microphone picked up Burruss saying what sounds like, "You deserve better."
Take a listen.
It's possible Burruss could have meant something else, like Romo deserved better injury luck. Maybe.
Also keep in mind that Romo may have been leaving the field as a Cowboy for the final time of his career. What a note to leave on...
The 36-year-old has said he still wants an opportunity to start in the NFL. That won't happen in Dallas, so it's likely he'll move on to another team this offseason.
According to Adam Schefter on ESPN Radio, the Cowboys may be willing to trade Romo to the team of his choice.
Speculation has linked him to the Broncos, Bears, Jets and Texans.
