Lichtensteiger "100-percent" ready for Saints

Lichtensteiger "100-percent" ready for Saints

Kory Lichtensteiger has not played in an NFL game regular season or exhibition since suffering a serious knee injury early last season.

But if all goes well this week in practice, the Redskins left guard hopes to make his return Sunday in New Orleans on a surgically repaired right knee that he says, feels as good as it can.

100-percent, Lichtensteiger said, asked how confident he is that hell suit up against the Saints. Weve had a few days now with a pretty good tempo in practice where the coaching staff can see if somebody can go of or they cant, if I trust my knee or I dont. Im taking these practices a little more seriously now than, say, if I had done all of training camp.

Lichtensteiger tore his ACL, MCL and against the Eagles on Oct. 16, 2011 and spent the entire offseason working toward being ready for training camp. On the second day of camp, though, the 27-year-old tweaked the same knee and, after some deliberation, opted to have it scoped, ending his hopes of playing in the preseason.

Lichtensteiger reported Monday that hes seen significant progress in recent days. He practiced fully for the first time on Friday and emerged from Saturday and Mondays sessions with minimal discomfort.

If Lichtensteiger is able to start Sunday, hell be backed up by Maurice Hurt. If not, Hurt will get the nod as he did all preseason.

Felt great first two days of camp, Lichtensteiger said. But it feels okay now. It feels like I can play on it. I feel like Im going to play at the same level I played before, which is all you can really ask for. Two knee surgeries in a year, its not going to feel great. It feels as good as it can.

The Redskins newest coach has a rap video in his honor

The Redskins newest coach has a rap video in his honor

On Monday morning, the Redskins made several new coaching hires official, including Jim Tomsula as the new defensive line coach.

Tomsula was out of football in 2016 after serving as the 49ers head coach for the 2015 season in which the team finished 5-11.

Despite struggling as a head coach, Tomsula gained an odd, if not heavy cult following. It made little sense considering he has the look and demeanor of someone who was put on this earth to coach football and coach football only. But through the glories of the internet came this:

The Jimmy Tomsula rap song.

It's just a demo, and I suppose the full version could be out there somewhere since this song is over a year old. But there's something hypnotizing about 60 consecutive seconds of "Open up my shirt like im Jimmy Tom-Sula."

How long before we begin hearing this song at FedEx Field on Sundays?
