In what can only been seen as positive development for the Redskins injury riddled offensive line, Trent Williams, Chris Chester and Maurice Hurt all were on the field when Mondays practice got underway at Redskins Park.Williams missed Saturdays practice with bone bruise on his left foot, an injury he sustained when Hurt landed on him during Thursdays preseason game in Buffalo.Williams participated in Monday mornings walkthrough, as did Chester and Hurt.Chester, who has been nursing a sprained left ankle, appeared ready to participate fully in practice for the first time since he was injured a week ago.Hurt, meantime, returned after missing Saturday with an inflamed tendon in his left knee that he presumably aggravated against the Bills. Hurt is filling in for Kory Lichtensteiger, who is expected to miss the entire preseason after having a second procedure on his surgically repaired right knee.The status of all three linemen for Saturdays preseason game in Chicago remains unclear. But it certainly appears the overall health of the much-debated unit is improving.Coach Mike Shanahan might have a status update during his news conference later Monday.

Numbers the Redskins’ defense needs to improve
Josh Norman is a man of many talents — at least on the football field, and in the friendliest possible way, he was reminded of that this weekend during a charity basketball game.
Opposite of the defensive nightmare Norman can be for receivers, the New York Knicks' Kyle O’Quinn had a little fun with the Redskins cornerback and the 10-inch height difference they share during the during Bam Bam’s Spring Jam at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Virginia.
O'Quinn got the ball and went up for a particularly easy dunk as Norman jumped and tried to swat the ball away but his effort was futile.
While this was all in good fun, Norman should probably stick to football.
Former Virginia Tech defenseive back and current Seattle Seahawk Kam Chancellor's foundation is behind the charity game, which also included Redskins' Lynden Trail, Marshawn Lynch, Michael Bennett and Antoine Bethea.
