It could get late early for those who sat vs. Bills

It could get late early for those who sat vs. Bills

We have been over the highlights of Thursdays game and discussed the good and the bad. But there were some players whose performances were in neither category because they never got off the bench. Here are the players who did not play according to the NFL Gamebook who were not among the players Mike Shanahan said would sit out.RB Lennon Creer
RG Antwan Bailey
OLB Monte Lewis
G Tony Moll
OT Willie Smith
OT James Lee
NT Dennis JohnsonMoll just joined the team a week ago and had his first practice on Tuesday so there wasnt much of a chance he would play in any case.Creer and Bailey two of seven running backs on the roster and with only one playing at a time and a limited number of snaps they couldnt all play. They shouldnt be too concerned about sitting this week but if they dont get in next week its another story.Smith, who started three games at left tackle last year, and Lee, a three-year NFL veteran, both missed some practice time with knee problems and their omission from the line rotation was not totally surprising. But it appears that both of them have some work to do to make the roster.Lewis and Johnson both are trying to win a job at deep positions. As with the running backs, they shouldnt be too concerned with sitting out but they need to get some playing time soon.There is still time for the players who were spectators on Thursday to make an impression. But, with the first round of cuts coming two weeks from Monday and the final cut 20 days away, these players certainly are aware that it gets late early in the NFL.

Mic'd up: This is what it sounds like as the Redskins running backs go through drills

Mic'd up: This is what it sounds like as the Redskins running backs go through drills

During a chat on the #RedskinsTalk podcast last month, Washington's running back coach Randy Jordan clued in CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay about the way he teaches his players and the things he wants to see from them.

Now, though, thanks to an exclusive Redskins Nation video, you have a chance to truly watch and listen to how Jordan and his students approach their on-field work.

In this all-access Mic'd Up segment (which was filmed at minicamp and which you can watch in the player above), you'll see the assistant encourage Samaje Perine, correct Matt Jones and compliment Rob Kelley. You'll also hear every grunt, bump and cut, an important ingredient that these types of packages must have.

It's clear from the footage that Jordan cares about the details. Now, don't blow this assignment, and go check out the video above.
