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!

Redskins struggling O-line takes hit as Spencer Long gets knee scope, per report

The Redskins offensive line struggled through the first two games of the 2017 preseason, and more bad news arrived Monday night when CBS Sports reported that center Spencer Long underwent a knee scope and is expected to miss the next two weeks.

Long moved to center last season when Kory Lichtensteiger got injured, and the results were solid. In 2015, Long started a number of games at left guard, but at center in 2016, he seemed a natural fit as a leader and a quick learner calling the Redskins protections. 

With Long expected to miss some time, rookie Chase Roullier will take over the top center job. Rouillier played center his senior season at Wyoming and earned All Mountain West honors. At 6-foot-4 and 312 lbs., Roullier has comparable size to Long, who goes 6-foot-5 and 320 lbs. Both players also played some guard in college. 

Washington coach Jay Gruden has repeatedly talked about the importance of a backup center, and with Roullier now moved to the top line, expect the Redskins to move quick to bring a veteran in for depth. This will make sorting out the offensive line roster even murkier as the Redskins approach roster cuts after their fourth preseason game.

Odell Beckham Jr. leaves Giants-Browns game after nasty-looking hit

NFL preseason games usually don't cause a stir on the Internet. That is, until a very important player suffers an injury in one.

That's exactly what happened during Monday night's Giants-Browns game in Cleveland. While going up to snag an Eli Manning pass, Odell Beckham Jr. was cut down by Briean Boddy-Calhoun on what was a gruesome-looking play:

At first, Beckham Jr. somehow looked like he was going to be OK. But he eventually had to head to the New York locker room, and the team later said his ankle is what they were concerned about:

If that's all it turns out to be, consider the receiver and the Giants lucky. In looking at replays of the hit, it's remarkable to think that he could emerge from it with no knee issues. 

New York will surely update his status once they find out more.

UPDATE - 10:26 P.M.

The entire Big Apple sighs a giant sigh of relief:
