LIVE Redskins practice report—Day 11

RICHMOND—One last practice before the Redskins part for Atlanta. The weather is about what it was yesterday, threatening skies with a good chance of rain. But a moderate rain didn't knock out the Monday afternoon practice so we shouldn't expect a little rain to affect today's proceedings. Check back and refresh often to follow along.

--Two players we know aren't participating today, Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson, are in shorts and tees playing catch.

--Crowder just ran some sprints from sideline to sideline in the end zone. He looked like he was moving pretty well. This could be one of those things where he could play if it was in the regular season but there's no point in risking further injury in preseason Week 1.

--Nice end zone grab by Keith Marshall. Carlos Fields had good coverage in the end zone as Nate Sudfeld lofted the pass. The defender got an arm in there but Marshall make the catch anyway. Good focus by the RB.

--The middle of the field is in rough shape. Matt Jones took a handoff, tried to cut to his left and just lost his footing. It was covered overnight so it doesn't appear to be wet. It does look brown (cue jokes about getting them ready to play at FedEx Field).

--It seems that Spencer Long and Shwn Lauvao are splitting the snaps at left guard.

--Morgan Moses is taking snaps at left tackle. I wonder if they will flip him over there and put Nsekhe in at right tackle If Trent Williams were to miss a game.

--Rashad Ross with a nice leaping catch with Will Blackmon and Greg Toler nearby. He makes another catch over the middle a couple of plays later. He's had some days where he's had a bad case of the drops; today is not one of those days.

--They're running the starting offense vs. the third-team defense. Nobody is quite sure why.

--Another slip, this one by Robert Kelley. Sure hope nobody gets hurt.

--D-Hall is in a little huddle with Norman, Breeland, Ihnacho, and Toler over on the sideline. He's doing most of the talking going over some of the finer points of coverage schemes.

--McCoy looked left and threw to Marcel Jensen over the middle. The QB didn't see Will Compton lurking. The LB jumped and got a hand on the ball but couldn't haul in the INT.

That's it for today folks. I'll be coming to you from Atlanta on Thursday. Let the games begin!

Need to Know: Some amazing Redskins numbers vs. the Raiders

 

Here is what you need to know on this Monday, September 25, seven days before the Washington Redskins play Chiefs in Kansas City.

Timeline

Today’s schedule: Jay Gruden conference call 3:00

Days until:

—Monday night Redskins @ Eagles (10/23) 28
—Cowboys @ Redskins (10/29) 34

Redskins vs. Raiders by the numbers

—The Redskins outgained the Raiders 472 yards to 128. The 344-yard differential was the largest for the Redskins since they had a 385-yard advantage over Bears in 1974.

—The Raiders were 0-11 on third down. It was the first time the Redskins allowed no third-down conversions since a game against Dallas in 2007.

—The Raiders’ 128 yards were the fewest the Redskins have allowed in a game since they also allowed 128 to the Broncos in 1992. This marked the fifth time since the merger that the Redskins have held an opponent to 128 yards or fewer.

—Chris Thompson had 150 yards receiving. That shattered his former personal best of 57 yards in a game. Going back to at least 1960, no Redskins running back has gained more receiving yards in a game.

—Thompson added 31 yards rushing. His 181 yards of offense easily beat the Raiders’ total offense of 128 by itself.

—Josh Doctson's first catch of the season was good for 52 yards and a touchdown. 

—The Redskins now have at least one sack in 27 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the NFC and the second-longest in the NFL (Bengals, 32).
