RG3 keeps it short at Monday's practice

Here is the promised RG3 report from Mondays practice:To get the question that has been buzzing around Twitter and elsewhere answered, no, RG3 did not throw any long passes. Well, he did find Leonard Hankerson in the end zone with a Hail Mary pass from about 35 yards. But we still havent seen him heave the ball downfield and have his receiver run under it. I suspect that well see that on Sept. 9 in New Orleans, if not sooner.Griffin did do a lot of what he has been doing best in practice, firing darts to receivers and tight ends running quick slant patterns. Its not the most thrilling play to watch but it could set up a lot of second and five situations through the season.One thing that RG3 has done a lot and continues to do is run. It's difficult to tell how effective his running is since the defense can't even give him a hard shove. He were going to get a peek at him running on Thursday but he called an audible away from a keeper when he saw the defense stacked to stop it.For the day, Griffin was 8-14 with the one TD on the Hankerson Hail Mary and no interceptions.Completions: Moss, Cooley, Garon 4, Hankerson
Incompletions: Moss 3, Royster, Davis, Hankerson

Redskins Playbook: Lots of moving parts with injuries on O-line, secondary

Redskins Playbook: Lots of moving parts with injuries on O-line, secondary

Significant injuries to the Redskins offensive line and defensive secondary will cause a number of position changes for the Redskins. When Washington gets on the practice field Wednesday at 1 p.m., and rain or shine, the team will look different after losing Kory Lichtensteiger, Shawn Lauvao, DeAngelo Hall and Bashaud Breeland. Here's what we'll be watching:

  1. Who's at left guard - Injuries to Lauvao and Lichtensteiger have a serious domino effect on the Redskins offensive line. Spencer Long is the backup to both men, and with the former Cornhusker at center, means left guard doesn't have a natural backup. Arie Kouandjio has been working for more than a year to be ready to play guard for Washington, and he might get the chance. The 'Skins also signed center John Sullivan, last of the Vikings, to the team on Tuesday. If and when Sullivan can get ready, he could allow Jay Gruden to move Long to guard.
  2. Corner store - Breeland's injury is not as severe as the offensive linemen's, and perhaps more important to the team, there is better depth at corner. Rookie Kendall Fuller is likely to see his first game action this Sunday against Cleveland, and the 'Skins can count on Greg Toler and Quinton Dunbar to have increased roles with Breeland out. Watching Fuller work in with the defense will be very interesting to see, as he's been working with the scout team for much of the early season.
  3. Safety button - D-Hall out for the year is a blow for Washington — no way around it. But expect lots more Will Blackmon at that spot. And Duke Ihenacho and even Deshazor Everett can provide increased snaps.
