Bullet points: Davis his own lawyer in legal flap

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

Redskins injury report: Jordan Reed out of practice, six are limited

There were a lot of wounded Redskins on the practice field on Wednesday as the team started preparations for their game against the Raiders on Sunday.

One injured player was not on the field. Jordan Reed was out with a chest injury. Obviously, there is concern but Jay Gruden said that it is too early to rule him out of the game.

A half dozen players were limited including RB Rob Kelley (rib), S Montae Nicholson (shoulder), CB Josh Norman (shoulder), OT Morgan Moses (ankle), S Deshazor Everett (knee), and LB Mason Foster (shoulder).

While none of the injuries seems particularly serious, they still could affect each player’s status for the game.

Foster suffered a separated shoulder during the game, popped it back in, and continued without missing a snap. He said that said that he was letting the athletic trainers handle it. “I’m going in, getting my treatment, doing what they tell me to do,” he said.

Kelley suffered a rib cartilage injury in the second quarter on Sunday. He said that the pain was very high that day but that it has subsided since. The starting running back said that

Terrelle Pryor issues polite but firm request to Rams safety to avoid hitting knees

Terrelle Pryor issues polite but firm request to Rams safety to avoid hitting knees

Football players prefer to regulate their sport without fines and penalties, and in 2017, social media can be a platform for any and all declarations.

After Terrelle Pryor took a direct hit to his right knee in the Redskins win over the Rams, the receiver reached out to L.A. safety Cody Davis via Twitter with a polite, but firm, message.

Standing 6'6", Pryor is one of the tallest receivers in the league. It makes sense he doesn't like getting hit in the knees, as any skilly player doesn't, but particularly with the increased height that could mean more safeties are coming in low on him.

Through two games Pryor has eight catches for 97 yards. The season hasn't started particularly strong for Pryor, though the 6-foot-5, 240 lb. wideout remains confident that his production will increase. 

Redskins coach Jay Gruden did not go as far as Pryor, but does believe his team's pass game is "very close" to firing on all cylinders. QB Kirk Cousins threw for nearly 5,000 yards last season, but through two games this year, his statistics have been subpar. 

To beat the undefeated Raiders, the Redskins will need a dominant performance from Pryor. He sounds like he's up for the job.
