The afternoon practice is open to fans; it starts at 3:00, the gates at Redskins Park open at 1:00. The complete schedule is here.Cost: Admission and parking are free. You will need to get and print out a free invitation, you can get that here.What you can bring: Coolers with food and drinks are permitted or you can buy some there (cash only). Chairs are permitted, as are still cameras. Video cameras are not permitted.TipsCome early and leave late. The roads going to and from Redskins Park are barely able to handle the normal flow of traffic and adding cars for a few thousand fans to the mix can lead to some serious gridlock.The players are pretty good about signing autographs, although it would be a mistake to come for one or two days and plan on getting one specific players to sign. The most popular players draw the biggest crowds of autograph seeker, of course, and not every player signs every day.Try to get along the fence (another reason to come early) to get the best view, especially if you have small children.If there is a threat of inclement weather, check here on CSNwashington.com for a status report.

The #Redskins defense really had to stop just one guy. David Johnson had 175 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns. Didn't get it done.— Rich Tandler (@Rich_TandlerCSN) December 5, 2016
In case you missed it
GLENDALE, AZ—The Redskins went into today’s game against the Cardinals somewhat banged up and they exit with a couple of additional injury concerns in the form of concussions.
Center Spencer Long left the game in the second quarter. Initially it was announced that he had been evaluated for a concussion but that he had been cleared. But after halftime the word came down that he had been retested and it was determined that he does have a concussion. Long has entered the concussion protocol.
Veteran John Sullivan, picked up earlier this season when Kory Lichtensteiger went on injured reserve, filled in a center the rest of the way. He is a capable fill-in but if Long is out he would be the only available center. The Redskins might have to sign a center if it looks like Long will be out of action against the Eagles.
In the fourth quarter safety Will Blackmon left the game. According to Redskins coach Jay Gruden he was being evaluated for a concussion and a stinger. His exact status is unknown. Gruden will give more information during a conference call with reporters on Monday.
