Here is what you need to start off your Tuesday, the last day that training camp will be open to the public.Keep an eye on the weatherAt least, todays practice is scheduled to be open to fans. There is a pretty good chance of rain off and on today and if the rain is on during practice the session could be moved to the bubble. Theres no room for fans in there so we may already have seen the last practice open to fans in Ashburn until 2020 since camp is scheduled to move to Richmond for at least seven years starting next summer.Check back here and via all of the other web and social media outlets for information.Some Briscoe buzzIt would be an exaggeration to say that Dez Briscoe, the wide receiver who the Redskins claimed on waivers from the Bengals has been the talk of camp. He hasnt done much that could be considered eye opening. Eleven players were targets of passes last Thursday in Buffalo and Briscoe was not one of them. But many I talk to around camp have been impressed.At 6-3 he is a legitimate red zone target. On Saturday, he ignored a crowd of defenders in the end zone reached up and snagged a Kirk Cousins pass for a touchdown. He routinely reaches up and makes nice grabs with his long arms and secure hands.The Redskins arent the only team that wanted him when the Bucs cut him loose. The Bengals, Eagles, and Cowboys also put in waiver claims.Briscoe is not an ideal player. He has had some personal issues that have played out on a public stage and his attention seems to wander sometimes when hes not actually playing wide receiver.But when he does play wide receiver, he plays it well, perhaps better than anyone on the roster outside of the top four. At age 22, he is the youngest receiver on the roster despite the fact that he has two years of NFL experience. If he gets some passes thrown his way on Saturday in Chicago, dont be surprised if he become one of those surprise players.Saturday TVHere is the TV viewing information I have been able to gather for the Redskins-Bears on Saturday.If youre in the Redskins market, the game will be shown in HD exclusively on Comcast SportsNet. If youre tuning in the game with rabbit ears, or whatever the digital signal equivalent of those are, you can also get the game in standard definition on NBC 4.The game will be rebroadcast numerous times. The first airing on Comcast SportsNet will be Sunday at 1 p.m. If youre out of the area, it will be on NFL Network on Sunday at 4 p.m.In case you missed itIn my view there are 34 Redskins on the bubble. My post on them generated some good discussion; its not too late to jump in with your opinion.The Redskins offensive line is beginning to return to health, although they arent quite there yet.Graham Gano did not have a good practice on Monday. Others, like Logan Paulsen, did.Days until: Redskins @ Bears 4; RG3 vs. Luck @ FedEx Field; final cuts 17; Redskins @ Saints 26; preseason opener vs. Bengals 40
Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is always open to some coaching no matter who it comes from. On Friday that coaching came from Veronica, an 85-year old woman who works at Congressional Country Club and is a die-hard Redskins fan.
Cousins posted a picture of the pair together on his Instagram account Friday afternoon.
Why I love playing for Washington... Just met Veronica, an 85 year old employee at Congressional Country Club, has worked there for 53 years and is a diehard Redskins fan. She had 3 thoughts to share: 1. She coaches me from her couch 2. Wants to be sure I get the ball out when I drop back 3. Wants the new receivers to get involved in the offense I'll see what I can do!
Veronica made some solid suggestions, especially the one about him getting the ball out of his hands quicker.
Despite the rocky contract situation with the team, there's no question that Cousins loves the passionate Redskins fan base.
