Williams active, pregame mishap causes other lineup changes

Here are the Redskins inactive players for todays game in Tampa:QB Rex Grossman
WR Aldrick Robinson
RB Ryan Grant
OL Adam Gettis
LB Markus White
CB Cedric Griffin
S Brandon MeriweatherMeriweather and Robinson were expected to be active but they were involved in a collision on the field during warmups. CSNwashington.coms Redskins Insider Tarik El-Bashir tweeted that Meriweather looked to hurt legknee, according to witness. Aldrick appeared like his headneck.It is a mild surprise that left tackle Trent Williams is active; he was questionable after injuring his right knee last week against the Bengals. According to El-Bashir, Williams is wearing a brace and is expected to start.Also expected to be in the starting lineup is wide receiver Pierre Garon, who has missed the last two games with a foot injury. Per El-Bashir, Garcon warmed up with quarterback Griffin, doing a number of hard cuts and fade routes.A couple of other lineup changes have been announced. Reed Doughty will start at strong safety in place of DeJon Gomes and Leonard Hankerson will start at wide receiver over Josh Morgan.The condition of the field has been a concern during the week as Florida State and South Florida played in Raymond James Stadium last night after some rain during the day. Per El-Bashir, while the field is chewed up in some areas, particularly near the goal line but, overall, it looks to be in better shape than many expected.

Josh Norman didn't stand a chance defending Kyle O’Quinn on this dunk

Josh Norman didn't stand a chance defending Kyle O’Quinn on this dunk

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.

Memorial Day Reflection: Kirk Cousins appreciates the cost of freedom

Memorial Day Reflection: Kirk Cousins appreciates the cost of freedom

On Memorial Day, people all over the United States stop to reflect on the freedoms provided for by the military. Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is no different.

"So grateful for living in this country and understanding that that came at a price and I just want to say thank you," Cousins said.

Speaking after an OTA session last week with military members in attendance, Cousins explained that he appreciates the added sense of history and obligation that comes from living in and around D.C.

"It’s a good reminder why it’s such a benefit to play here in Washington. It just feels like it’s that much more real with Andrews Air Force Base here and so many soldiers here. There’s something special about playing for the city of Washington, D.C. and driving 30 minutes into the city and going by the White House and the Pentagon and the monuments."

The Redskins hosted military members from multiple branches at their OTAs, and afterward, Cousins and a number of other players signed autographs. 

"You say ‘Man, I want to give these soldiers, these fans something to cheer about and make them excited and bring this city together.' Hopefully winning football games can do that. What a great thing. That’s the vision we’re chasing," the Redskins passer said. "Hopefully we can get it done this season."
