White has cracked rib

Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said reserve linebacker Markus White suffered a broken rib and a bruised kidney and will miss Saturdays game as a result.Its unclear how White was hurt, but he removed his shoulder pads early in Wednesdays practice and was in obvious discomfort as he was tended to by the Redskins training staff.Shanahan said White could return for the teams third preseason contest against Indianapolis. When exactly he returns, though, could be determined by his pain threshold, Shanahan added.Well see how long it takes, the coach said.White is battling Chris Wilson for a backup outside linebacker job.A few other notes from Shanahans post-practice news conference on Thursday:--Linebacker London Fletcher did not participate fully in team drills because he wasnt feeling too good today, Shanahan said.--Wide receiver Darius Hanks was waived-injured Monday because of injuries to his shoulder and elbow, Shanahan revealed today. It was a six-or seven-month recovery time, Shanahan said. The way he hit it, you can tell it was more serious than most shoulder injuries.

85-year-old woman unafraid to coach Kirk Cousins

85-year-old woman unafraid to coach Kirk Cousins

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. 

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.
